Schools in California are sending letters to parents telling them their children are fat.

The nanny state complaining about the results of the nanny state. Go figure.
So, the anti-bullying charade was just that, seeing that entire school districts are calling kids fat? Color me surprised.
If they are products of your public schools, the chance of their being functionally literate is less than 50%. Maybe they can use the handouts to housetrain puppies.
LOL! Good catch! At least they didn’t say “a vast bulk of handouts.”
Wow..I bet the school administrators who wrote that letter are all Twiggy and Mia Farrow skinny..right?
Libs don’t want to keep score at soccer games because it would “hurt the feelings” of the losers. But sending a kid a letter saying he’s fat is OK. (It is a disease)
Anyone ever see a FAT kid that has skinny parents ?
