If we're late for school, we'll miss our free Federal breakfast. Big deal, it's just saltines and fig paste. Ew, saltines?

Why is this legal. What is the school a movie theater now. No outside food or drink. That's fine if you are operating a business, or even a public area like a museum. But a school is a place where you legally require people to be. You legally require someone to show up to an area, stay there for 8 hours and not allow them to eat anything except for the food that you sell to them. What is wrong with people. What is wrong with administrators who think this could be a good idea. What is wrong with parents who allow it. And what is seriously terribly wrong with the parents who claim this is good because otherwise there is no check on the kids nutrition. YOU ARE THE CHECK. YOU FREAKING IDIOT. YOU ARE THE KIDS PARENT IT IS YOUR JOB TO MAKE SURE HE EATS HEALTHY IF THAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU, NOT THE SCHOOL'S JOB. Jebus. And why is it okay to trample the kids rights. If a kid has his own money that he earned doing chores, or helping a neighbor move, or selling drugs, what business is it of the federal government how they spend that money. Governments always love to trample on kids because they aren't allowed to vote, and as long as they are taught by incompetent unionized teachers, they'll never grow up to realize that they were opressed by the government. Would the government make it illegal for their employees to bring junk food to work, why not, we can't trust them to eat healthy. From now on no more donuts for cops, just celery sticks and carrots. They are not allowed to bring any food into the precinct. No of course not. Nobody would ever think to impose such an opressive rule. By they have no problem doing it to the kids. If a child's parents asks the school to confiscate junk food from him, and the teachers are able to keep track i don't have a problem with that, but this blanket policy should be illegal.

I would have like to see them try that when I was in school. I would have spent every penny I earned distributing forbidden foods.

I did in fact sell candy in school one year. I bought like a giant thing of gumballs for like 5 bucks (it had like 500 gumballs) and i started selling the gumballs for like a nickle each. I hadn't originally planned it that way, but i had many freaking gumballs i had to do something with them. I easily more than made back my money.
