    Sadly, the school can force the student to buy the healthy food, but they can’t force the student to actually eat it. Should help the big agri-businesses, though …..

  2. I must have awakened in Bizarro World this morning. Antonio Villaraigosa, an uber-left mayor of a major city is quoted in the article as saying that the teachers union is “the one, unwavering roadblock to improving public education in Los Angeles.”

    Guessing nothing but the sound of crickets from $Bill about this.

    Good thing George H. W. Bush grew up when he did and isn’t a student in today’s world. Broccoli? Thems fightin’ words, but tell it to the commissar.

    Here’s the latest from the Communist front: “Obama’s Inner Lenin Invoked in Desperate Re-Election Strategy” Source: http://www.economicnoise.com/2012/03/30/obama-channels-his-inner-lenin-as-desperation-sets-in/

  4. Will a person be denied health coverage if Broccoli is not consumed ?
    Does it have to be government Broccoli ?

    Has to be an April 1 joke. Wait a minute, that’s what I thought when Obozo was nominated, albeit not on April 1, and look how that worked out.

    The story anon referred to in Rochester – where patrons of a food store are asked not to use some muslim girl’s checkout line if they’re buy pork or alcohol – is a reductio ad absurdum on political correctness. Unreal – the majority doing perfectly legal and perfectly respectable things is being asked to modify behavior to accommodate a part-time employee with a religious aversion to normal behavior by others. Bah! Humbug.

    The real reason food prices are escalating like they never have before:

    “Speculation by large investment banks is driving up food prices for the world’s poorest people, tipping millions into hunger and poverty…Hedge funds, pension funds and investment banks such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Barclays Capital now dominate the food commodities markets, dwarfing the amount traded by actual food producers and buyers…” More:

    What’s hysterical, my introductory sentence, which is based on my perception of doing my own shopping and cooking since the late 60s, which I think is correct because I’ve never seen food prices go up week by week as much as they are now, or the article I linked to?

    what’s hysterical? goldman and jp hold 80% of oil futures. what else are ‘the banks’ supposed to do with all of those free trillions, now that trading is the majority of the biz?
