Posted on 11/09/2004 11:55:30 AM PST by ProtectOurFreedom
Steven Walley is seething over the "food police" at his son's school.
A letter from the Freedom Elementary School said the county's Health Services Agency plans to educate students and families about healthy eating habits and there was a list of acceptable foods.
It also warned: "We will take away from students any non-nutritious foods such as hot Cheetos or chips, sugary snacks, soda, etc."
Walley couldn't believe it. "The food police," he said, had gone too far.
"There's no law on the books that would allow this," Walley said. "They're saying if I send my kid to school with chips or a Hostess pie for lunch, they're gonna take it away from him. What gives them the right?"

California, You have our permission to secede if you wish, BUT ALL YOUR CONSERVATIVES ARE BELONG TO US!........
Hot Cheetos? What happens when you put them in the microwave?
The schools need to eliminate their all cheese all the time lunch menus and then they can tell us what kids can take to lunch.
the *nazis are on the run all over since 11/2. let's make sure they don't get away.
No soup for you!
OK, we won't confiscate *all* the junkfood. Maybe just those Ho-Hos. And are those Whachamacallits? I used to LOVE whachamacallits! I didn't even know they still made those. And those Necco mints... those can't be good for you... And those [voice trails off]
Well, that's true for a lot of things.
>> Hot Cheetos? What happens when you put them in the microwave?<<
Obviously, they become a threat to civil society!
For the record, when I was in grade school, they banned soda and candy. And there was quite a black market, lemme tellya.
The food Nazis are feeling "empowered." They may be pushed back for now, but they will return.
"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose".
Mr. Smart Guy Steven Walley is lucky that the state isn't taking his kids away from him!
How dare he obstruct legitimate state policy?!?
Believe me, these smart-alecky little whelps will be thanking their masters for this years from now. Because They Know Better Than You.
Remember they can have sex, an abortion without parental notification, and take classes on Islam. But under no circumstances are they to have junk-food.
Like all things, healthy eating involves choices. The foods you deny someone become the foods they will do anything to have.
(Like don't stand between me and my chocolate).
Man, I knew the left was a bunch of control freaks, but I didn't think it would come to this...not this soon anyway.
This is serious stuff, folks...just imagine what will happen when the PETA folks take over the school board:
"No meat for you!"
Think that's an exaggeration? Ask your parents if they ever would have thought they'd be taking kids' chips. Don't get lulled by the trap of gradualism.
Yeah, they'll confiscate all the yummy snacks, and the teachers will divvy them up in the teacher's lounge after school.
