Another Home Lunch Confiscation

Home - by - February 17, 2012 - 14:27 America/New_York - 46 Comments

This time they effed with the wrong mother.

“Let me put this clearly and succinctly, “IT IS NONE OF DHHS BUSINESS”. I am not mandated nor can they mandate that I follow USDA guidelines. They can make the school lunchroom follow the guidelines, but when you start telling me what to feed my child and confiscating that lunch, we are going to have a problem. You better have a damn good lawyer, cause you will need it.”

    And to further hammer the point home, these mothers should demand that the school refund the price of these confiscated lunches. Someone paid for that food and if the school is going to take it they should refund the money to the parents. Watch how this stupid bullshit will stop if this comes up at the next PTA meeting

    Right on Mom! Get your nose out of my tent!

    That memo is absolutely pathetic. “My overlord has said I am doing well, but that I must do better. I must make my overlord happy, so that he will smile down upon me.”

    “They give the choice of pizza and hot donuts…none of that is healthy,” Zambrano said.

    More proof that this is really about SEIU getting school cafeteria contracts.

    Lawsuits for reimbursements of lunches, although they’d be small-claims stuff, are a swell idea!

    I wonder how much money they will get from the government when I pull the rest of my kids out and homeschool them all.

    After all, they failed my speacial needs kid and I have been nice enough to not sue them because I don’t want to have to drag my family through a lawsuit. However, since we have to homeschool one, we might as well homeschool the rest.

    People are beginning to get that the price of compliance – government money on a carrot stick – is more of a burden then a benefit. Good.

    Public schools aren’t just for indoctrinating your kid into zero’s world, they’re gonna use the kids to bring parents under the lash as well.

    If they think that offical UDA approved food is so damn good for the children, then they the school staff ought to mandated to eat that crap as well. You know, like, it would be totally awesome if they would set the example, if it is sooooo groovy and good, fur sure.
    Someone ought to ask prinicple Jackie Samuels, what part of the word NO has her confused? As in NO you may NOT tell me what, when or how to feed my children. AND in case you have forgotten, would you kindly pull your head out of your ass and remember that as a prinicple in a taxpayer funded school system, you, bitch, work for me!

    That said, what the hell does an Environmental Rating Scale have to do with school lunches and what difference does an NC Star Rating or a License mean? The state of NC is going to pull their license and shut down the hot lunch program?

    Hey Dr. Tar, the kids are not allowed to have PB&J’s anymore. Peanut free zones and all that. One kid at our school has a peanut allergy, and all of a sudden the entire school cannot bring anything nutty, or is labelled as having been packed in a facility that processes nuts. No more home baked goods either. They have also told us to not feed our children anything with peanut in it at home for breakfast before they come to school. So I give my daughter a toasted bagel spread extra thick with peanut butter for good measure.

    Perfect example of how incrementalism can be so effective in implementing liberal/prog policies like this one.

    And I’m sure North Carolina isn’t running a budget surplus, nor do they have anywhere near 100% graduation or literacy rates in any of these schools.

    I stumbled across this website when I was looking for the background on corporate boards the first-doofus wife served on? I thought she had served on some ‘food commission’ or ‘food service’ something or other. Well as I read this story, I couldn’t help but think that it didn’t matter what this broad is trying to push on us, it is clear that she has this ‘do as I say, not as I do’ mentality. They both chose government work because they’re too damn lazy to succeed in the private sector. Government is the ONLY place you can be a total louse and screwup and still get paid for doing it. I know, it drives me insane to work with the same kind of people in state gov. Gawd I miss the private sector!!!!!

    @HooHooNayNay:

    Exactly!! We the people have been ‘in the closet’ for waaaaay too long, allowing the minority in this country to legislate their wishes on the rest of us, including being ‘offended’ by prayer banners, crosses on graves, traditional marriage, saying God bless you at graduation ceremonies, just to name a few.

    It is all about the cost of doing business these days, especially when staring down the barrel of litigation threats.

    Have we forgotten what the signers of the Declaration of Independence declared when placing their names on this blessed document?

    “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

    It’s hard to tell whether “cited” is spelled “sited” due to the poor-quality copy, but I see several other grammatical mistakes in the principal’s letter:

    In the sentence which begins “Although, we welcome …”, there should not be a comma after “Although”; there should, however, be a comma after “home”. There should, however, be no “however” in the sentence since the sentence already begins with “Although”.

    What’s more, “with the above requirements” should be “that meets the above requirements”.

    The next sentence should not have commas around “who do not bring a healthy lunch” since this is not a parenthetical expression–the meaning of the sentence is changed if the expression is omitted; therefore, it should not be set off by commas. There should, however, be a comma before the phrase that starts with “which”.

    Mrs. Moskala would not be impressed with this sample of Jackie Samuels’s
