Today I read something on Facebook that I won't even link to for fear of giving the referring "news site" more clicks. I WILL paraphrase though.
I am friends with TONS of people. Black,white, gay, straight, Christian, Atheist, Pastafarian, I DON'T care. Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, whatever! If I know you, I am probably your Facebook friend. I LOVE lively debates. Some people when I post certain things I KNOW they will comment on it ::cough cough Erin cough cough::
So today, it was no surprise when I saw an "OMG!!!! Michelle Obama is taking Chick-fil-a out of school cafeterias!!!!"
Wait, what? Why the crap is it even IN the cafeteria. Basically here is the article paraphrased:
- ZOMGGGG!!!! Michelle Obama has no nutrition degree and is changing school lunches so "students not experience the tasty goodness that is Chick-fil-A" and "Department of Special Education will be made to suffer the loss of their main fundraiser for field trips"
On another website the principal of the school in question said “I’ve never seen anybody come to high school thin and leave fat,” Browning added, “but we will sell what qualifies. It amounts to pine bark and flavored water, and it’s going to severely limit what kids will be able to buy during the school day.”
Seriously? When do kids get overweight then? Also, pine bark and flavored water? WIth the attitude that the principal is bringing to the school EVERYONE is going to hate it. Why not embrace it? Why not talk about good choices and bad choices?
My Facebook friend was saying how schools get "tastless garbage" and his kids "come home hungry" I have eaten at Aidan and Nate's school. While it isn't 5star food, it isn't horrible. My recommendation to this friend (whose children don't even go to the school in question, yet was still up in arms, cause you know Obama is horrible---Psst...they AREN'T) PACK YOUR KIDS LUNCH.
Isn't hard. Takes 10 minutes. You can do it the night before. If your kid is in high school THEY can do it. I used to do it.
So...what are your thoughts on all this? Do you agree with me or am I the crazy one?
