I hope the parents of the kid whose lunch was deemed unhealthy sue the meddling officials. I’m ordinarily against litigiousness but I think unless officials start getting sued for interfering with people’s lives they’re going to keep on doing it. Too often public officials think they’re beyond reproach with a king-can-do-no-wrong mentality, and it’s time the people start taking their sorry butts to court.
I’ve often seen people say that suing in these situations is useless as it only punishes the taxpayer. Well, yes it does. and often for good reason. Let me explain that seemingly ‘lib’ comment.
The taxpayer in general is responsible for idiots being the the majority populace of government and schools.school boards. Since the taxpayers of that area were responsible for the election and or appointment by idiots, they bear responsibility as well. By suing, in enough instances like this, the taxpayer will be forced to pay more attention to who they vote for or continue paying for the misbehavior of elected idiots.
This totally sucks for those of us who DO pay attention and vote as the Constitution would have us, but I see no other way. Only money seems to motivate the squishy and easily led out there.
