What's in YOUR lunchbox?

Chicago school bans some lunches brought from home

I hope there's such a backlash from the parents -- where ARE the parents??? Are we THAT far gone that we swallow (no pun intended, but I'll take it on principle) anything government officials tell us we must? Are we that ripe for the statist pickin's?

They. Work. For. Us.

I'd be at the next school board meeting with torches and pitchforks, and as many of my kids friends' parents I could muster.

Time was school systems were local and run by the people via the PTA and School Board.  But we have a bloated beaurocratic system where we allow un-elected "experts" to dictate policy.  The school boards point to the "experts" advice and say "we gotta do it, for the chilllllllllldren."

But read on, McDuff.  Now we see the corruption inherent in the system:

Any school that bans homemade lunches also puts more money in the pockets of the district's food provider, Chartwells-Thompson.
More taxpayer money to the school.  But really, something else is up here. (See, I read Alinsky, and I know how this all works).   I said to myself, "Self?  What's the chances that Chartwells-Thompson employees are SEIU?"

Service Employees International (Workers of the World Unite, it's not just a slogan anymore) Union.  Yeah. 

Woah, what's this here?
"A more robust expansion of school lunch, breakfast, summer feeding, child care and WIC (the federal Women, Infants and Children nutrition program) is critical to reducing hunger, ending childhood obesity and providing fair wages and healthcare for front line food service workers."

An estimated 400,000 workers prepare and serve lunch for school children in the U.S., including over 30 million students who rely on free or reduced-priced lunches for a healthy meal. "
Budda-bing.  Lookie here near the top of page 15.  How do you like that?  Chartwells does indeed contract with SEIU.

SEIU.  ACORN. Chicago.  Rathke.  Alinsky.  Ayers.  Obama. 

Nothing to see here.

Move along.
