Does anyone really think it is the job of the state to regulate and inspect lunches (Federal or State level mind you.) of children that are packed by mom and dad?

"The job of the government appears to be to make certain they have jobs."

The bald truth, elegantly stated!

I'm against state-monitored lunches. And murder.

The reason that I brought up this incident in the first place is that it is not simply an isolated bizarre happening, but the type of thing that is happening more and more frequently.

Libertarians among us might be interested by this article:

Well, since I don't, you and Danny are just talking out the side of your mouth. I've written 300 misc. messages since my last post involving this topic.

And this whole lunch business is not an issue any way. It's a NON issue. More people die of second-hand smoke in one month than will EVER die from a lunch intervention of this type. Having correct priorites is the first step to any discussion involving the public trust.


More people are killed by auto accidents than cops. Lets start there. Lets hear you rail against that. Or here ya go lets try this. Since from this post, which I have not edited in ANY way, seems to indicate your only priority is body count here is one for you. Here is a body count site for you. http://www.buzzfeed.com/awesomer/20-thin......ks-every

I have no idea if it is accurate but tell us where cops fall in this one? Before vending machines? Before hot dogs? Where (and provide us with some stats) do cops who kill unarmed people FOR NO REASON fall on this scale?

Surprised at the high number for lightening and the low number for tornadoes. Interesting.

A really high percentage of those are golfers going after a Darwin award.

For the record I do not claim the site is accurate at all.

What is the ratio of innocent people shot by cops to innocent cops shot by criminals? Sadly, I seem to read about the latter almost every week.

Sure there are bad cops out there, but there are countless good ones who put their own lives on the line every day.

I notice in didn't preface "American citizen" with "law-abiding." For some people, being killed by the police is a chosen occupational hazard.
