Posted on 09/28/2012 12:14:47 PM PDT by Nachum
As many as 1,000 students at a New Jersey high school are expected to boycott their cafeteria today to protest the Obama administrations new lunch guidelines that many teenagers say are leaving them hungry. Instead of purchasing their lunch in the cafeteria, many students at Parsippany Hills High School are brown-bagging it upset over smaller portions and higher prices. Were asking everybody not to buy lunch or anything from the cafeteria, student Brandon Faris told the Parsippany Patch. Faris, a 17-year-old senior and junior Nicholas Caccavale, organized the strike and more than 1,000 of their classmates have joined a

This will go down in history as “The Twinkie Revolt”.
Occupy Cafeteria has begun —
One day is symbolic and pathetic. They should make the strike long-term. Stop buying meals that don’t contain enough food. The cafeterias will lose money if they cook food, pay staff, and don’t sell meals. They will go back to serving enough food and make it edible, or they will have to close down. Better yet, make this an opportunity to learn to bring their own tasty lunches, and don’t go back to eating cheap cafeteria food even once the portions become tolerable.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I think I remember something like that back in the late 50s and early 60s when I was in high school.
What a concept!
Awww...just like the 1960s — young people becoming politically active. Isn’t that nice.
The Queen of fHart’s will scream “OFF WITH THEIR HEADS”.
I wonder if this is some sort of “trial run” to condition people into accepting government imposed food rations. Obey Obama, obey the Party, and you will be rewarded with a loaf of bread and pint of milk. Otherwise, you starve.
This is bigger than it may seem.
It’s the perfect real-world metaphor for what is wrong with liberalism in general, and federal government meddling in particular.
And it’s happening all across the country right now.
For every kid who’s disappointed, there are two parents who vote (ok, maybe one).
It validates everything the Tea Parties were trying to say.
I was in school in the 50’s we didn’t have a cafetaria, we all brown bagged it.Then we folded the bag and took it home for the next day.
We didn’t have lockers either. The bag went into the desk, and hopefully when you got back to home room at lunch time you still had a lunch.
When we changed to shorts for Phys-Ed we did it in the boy’s bathroom, and we didn’t have showers, we sat in class the rest of the day in our sweat.
I belonged to the FFA rifle team and we brought our rifles to school on competition days.When there was a fight it was between two boys and no one else. It wasn’t considered polite to interrupt or get involved.We all carried ajck knives ,but we never used them in fights.A couple of us Sr.s dated the art teacher,she was only a couple of years older than us , no one thought much of it.
“BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA”
“MMMM... MMMM...” uh... maybe not, eh?
Somehow, that’s racist... :)
If only I had those wicked cool lunchboxes my parents always got for me!
Obama is the Redistribution king of the world and Michelle is his queen.
Not only does Obama think Americans are too well doctored, too warm in summer, too cool in winter and too well-fed, he wants us to redistribute our wealth and our FOOD to those countries which we have economically “colonized”.
I think the ULTERIOR motive here is to get Americans to eat less so we send more food overseas.
Obama is a total maniac and so his wife and, of course, these rules DON’T apply to the king and queen, or any of their court.
Just ask that sourthern cook Deena what’s her name with the TV show. She said Michelle wouldn’t stop stuffing her face on her cooking program.
They SHOULD brown bag their lunches. Tell the government control freaks to go stuff it - the can feed themselves.
This is just like the non-importation agreements concerning British goods before the American revolution (the First One).
I will be 72 next month & still enjoy my brown bag lunches that are made by my wife of fifty + years. (I do have to admit that I occasionally slip out for pizza)
There is a school board meeting on Wednesday, and I hear a number of irate parents will be attending. I don't normally go to these meetings, but I might attend this one. It should be fun. I'll bring the popcorn.
Gee this is nice. But their idiot drone parents will still be voting for TEH WON!!!
Last Poll had NJ +15 for Obama.
This past Monday I was at a Bible study group. Several members are retired teachers. One member is involved with all the paperwork needed to comply with all the government mandates and evaluation of testing processes, etc.. Anyway, she was telling us about how much food was being wasted in the public shools this year because the kids simply are resisting eating the stuff that Michelle Obama has shoved down their throats
My friend described kids in line who refused to have the vegetables of the day put onto their plates. When they were told thay HAD to have the veggies, they said “OK”, and immediately shoved them into the waste basket as they were going to their tables.
And, then the education establishment will cry that they need more money from the taxpayers.
I fear for the future of our country.
The future is now my friend. Welcome to Obamatopia.
This is another campaign issue being gift-wrapped and handed to Romney.
You know, if you don’t like what they’re serving in the cafeteria then bring your lunch from home. Problem solved.
Obama “Truth” Team shortly to issue statement saying Obama food rules are Bush’s fault.
Meanwhile, the Obamas are constantly seen stuffing their faces with endless amounts of rich, delicious foods - paid for by the taxpayers.
This is all funny from a far, but I will add:
It was Al and Tipper Gore who put me on the path towards Conservatism when they tried to ban music with offensive lyrics (why we now have warning labels).
These kids are getting first-hand experience with Fascists and it will leave a detectable mark for the rest of their lives.
Wouldn’t suprise me anymore. It fits right in with the soda restrictions.
Hey, come on, kids; you know only too well that salads, celery sticks, carrot sticks, yogurt, and steamed organic veggies are the best thing with which to worship the Temple of the Body.
No, I can’t stand that flavorless health food sh*t either.
(And.. pssst... by the way - neither can the president’s wife.)
I bet if an unbiased nutritionist were to analyze the food and food portions, I’d be betting they meal sizes are closer to 500 calories. That would explain why it’s not enough food and the kids stay hungry.
Im betting somebody is skimming a couple hundred calories off each meal for profiteering purposes.
It’s not allowed by these profiteers of the public purse.
Many moms have made their kids nutritionally-acceptable brown bag lunches, only to have thrown away under pretenses.
Unfortunately the food monitors will check and if it isn’t in their eyes nutritionable, they’ll throw it out.
Make sure it’s air popped, ok?
I don’t think there’s an ulterior motive, unless you count pure hunger for power. But that’s behind everything they do. The thing is they genuinely want to help kids with two contradictory problems: obesity and not exactly undernourishment but less than optimal eating. Because they are leftists the way to do so is to assume the role of parent.
Most likely, because they are incompetent and because of the inherent shortcomings of central planning they will probably make more kids fat and more hungry.
Nah. The fake cheese orange kind. LOL
“You know, if you dont like what theyre serving in the cafeteria then bring your lunch from home. Problem solved.”
Where I live, outside food is forbidden and has been for years since the cafeterias were built. Now THAT is fascist.
You’re on to something. Despite all the efforts of the administration and teachers union these kids may actually learn how the market works to their advantage.
The local McDonald's, Wendy's, DunkinDonuts, etc... will see an increase of business either during lunch or after school.
Queen Michelle is NOT amused.
She can go suck an egg...
Same here. I went all 12 years to Catholic schools in Detroit in the 50s. We brown bagged it every day. There were four of us kids. We could buy milk in the hallways; I never saw a cafeteria. Never left the house without some kind of home made breakfast. Mom was a stay-at-home, and dad was cop. If they could do that, so can these people today.
Now my kids can - during school - open the refrigerator to grab lunch. Home schooling is better!!
