Food Nazis regulate US Lunchrooms

Top Level USDA Reps Showing Up in US Lunchrooms I’m a progressive. Progressives want to improve society, making it less unfair, more egalitarian. Period. So, finding that the US Department of Agriculture is checking lunchboxes and verifying menus at school cafeterias is outright fascistic to me!
Last Monday a top United States Department of Agriculture representative showed up at a school in Richmond, Virginia to arbitrate bake sales and tater tots.
Now the state knows better than everyone else in matters of school food and needs to enforce (bleurgh) healthy food policies everywhere… for our children, no less.

This reeks so of Hitlerjugend...
This is an utter waste of resources.
This does not solve the unemployment crisis, unless you count the Food Police as an improvement.
This does not solve the dependence on fossil fuels and the energy crisis either.
This does not solve climate change issues.
This does not solve the American median income decline, nor the income inequality of Corporate America.
Persuasion is one thing and enforcing is really another.
The US Government is very short of mandating people to exercise and eat healthy. Tomorrow will be something else than healthcare. We may not like it, but it would be late anyhow. They are doing this — forcing us to do this, for our own good. They know better, we don’t.
We’re plain dumb. We’re cattle. We should follow and obey.
“Government is an association of men who do violence to the rest of us”, said Leo Tolstoi. “The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government”, said Martin Luther King, Jr. The Obama administration has failed to oversee this and prefers to ignore the forsaken promises of unity, rejoicing in exercising raw power against its people.
You may see goodness in a government controlling children’s food; I see power overreach and the death of liberty.
