Well, they've had their greasy paws on the schools for decades. And now, the same folks who will move mountains to get sexually active preteen schoolgirls all the contraception they want and knocked-up girls all the abortions they want -- even without knowledge or consent of their parents -- are set to ban candy and sugary drinks from schools nationwide.
Look, nobody's for loading their kids up with sugar and other junk. As a parent of two young kids, I certainly don't. But it's not the job of some soulless bureaucracy in Washington, D.C. to prohibit its availability outright.
Ben Shapiro at Breitbart writes:
In typical federal government fashion, the rules run a full 160 pages. They do not ban juice, and call for foods to be fruit, vegetable, dairy, protein, whole-grain, or a combination thereof.
Of course, most students will either forego the healthy snacks or throw them out. But wasting taxpayer money has never been a problem for this administration.
This is to be expected. School kids have already rebelled against the Obama administration's assault on school lunches, with kids throwing out tons of food they just don't want to eat, or smuggling and trading more palatable foods in a juvenile black market.
From guns to food to cigarettes, to the water in your toilets, cars in your driveway, light bulbs in your sockets, to the amount of money in your paycheck, there is no end to the Obama left's assault on your liberty. And the woefully ignorant American people voted for it -- twice.
So, to all you 12-year-old girls out there, screw to your heart's content. Schools will get you all the contraceptive you need. Just don't you dare be eating a cookie while you're doing it. And if you get pregnant, it's taxpayer-funded abortions abound! Just don't you dare be drinking a soda while you're sitting waiting for the school nurse. That might be grounds for expulsion.
What a sick f**king country we've turned into.
UPDATE 2/4/13: Lest anyone think I was being hyperbolic about the leftists running our schools providing young girls with contraceptives, even without parental knowledge or consent, behold this expose in this morning's AT: NYC schools have been giving away Plan B pills like candy (except it's candy that's now prohibited!) not only without parental consent, but also without a legally required doctor's prescription. It's allegedly been going on for years under the radar.
Again: What a sick f**king country we've turned into.
