… Not A Big Shock [#school lunch defectors]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 20th,2016

.. school districts are beginning to defect from the school lunch program ..

.. wanna guess why ? …

.. [h/t — amoraloutrage.wordpress.com]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. the regulations , for one . They have become so onerous and numerous that the cost of compliance has soared . Not just that , but these districts are not compensated by anyone for these costs …

.. the loss of money , for another . the students will not just buy what they are being forced to serve . The revenue from sales meets the variable costs , but the fixed cost bill for the school district is enormous . Without the co – operation of the students , they will not make any money . Especially , they will lose money . lots of it …

.. the donated stuff from the Department of Agriculture is nice . Who would not want free stuff ? But there are costs associated with the free stuff . Those costs have soared into low Earth orbit . Thus making the free stuff not worth the hassle …

… It is As if Kids are Getting Starvation Rations [#school meals]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 5th,2016

.. considering what they are getting to eat these days …

.. in my day , we did not get a big lunch . But , we did get a decent – sized meal . Sometimes it was small , and at other times , it was large . But it was good , and we had choices …

.. nowadays , kids get barely anything at all . I do mean that . The pictures and photos of what students are protesting over makes me want to retch ….

.. they really do look like starvation rations . Is that what FLOTUS & Co intended with their school meal reforms ? Outrageos !! …

… Students pay $$ for this ?? [#thanksMichelleObama]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 21st,2016

.. I thus add my own voice to those of the students …

.. to think young people [even little kids] are getting lunches like the one pictured below …

thanks michelle obama

.. [link] to the blog news …

.. Michelle & Company think that something like this piece of crap is a ” healthy lunch ? ” …. You have to be kidding ? …

.. if you are going to feed kids , feed them , or let them bring their own bag lunches . Somehow , given the pittance that these kids get in school , and what they have found out , I have to think that mothers nationwide are furious about this . Feeding their kids this little , for what they are charged , is the height of outrageous ….

… Those New School Lunch Rules are an Obscene Joke …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 1st,2016

.. nice going , Michelle Obama & Company ..

.. you dummies really [f-ed] up on this one …

.. [h/t — EAGNews.org]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. if you are going to design new rules for the school lunch room …. think …

.. it helps if you dummies actually think of rules that will design foods that will appeal to kids …. and not be targets for the damn trashcan …..

.. duhh !!!! …

.. school districts are losing boatloads of money , because kids do not like what is being served . The kids are boycotting the lunchrooms altogether , or doing something old fashioned …. bringing their lunch from home ….

.. the regs are onerous and expensive , and in many cases are not worth it to the school districts . So , the school districts are taking action . They are doing something that would once have been unthinkable …. they are leaving the school lunch program [with the freebies from the Department of Agriculture] , and are going out on their own ….

.. how original ! … thinking like a business , and catering to the likes and dislikes of their customers …. how quaint …

… the National School Lunch Program is …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 15th,2014

.. a disaster beyond words ..

.. the First Lady [yea , Michelle Obama] wants kids to eat healthier . O.K. , but do their menus in a healthier way …

.. if you think that feeding kids greens , salads , and other stuff that they do not want will work , forget it . The kids are many things , but they are not stupid ..

.. these kids are raised in the Age of the Internet . They grow up with Social Media . If you think that they are going to take this crappy excuse for food lying down , forget it . They will find their own imaginative ways to not just get mad , but also to get even …

.. [h/t — Reason]..
.. [link] to the article ..

.. in this case , these high school kids are imaginative , humourous , and inventive . Take a look at their music video ; it is good , and it is worth a few laughts …
