Mayor DeBlasio has banned eating meat in school cafeterias one day a week.  "Meatless Mondays" for the kids all of who probably prefer peas and carrots with a side salad over fried chicken or a cheeseburger, don't ya think.  

Bill and AOC hand in hand to control our diets.  For some of these kids, it's the only meal they get.

It’s interesting to note how many people have read the original post, yet nobody commented.  I doubt it’s  because they don’t understand or disagree.  I think everyone agrees that DeBlasio’s policy is absurd, meaningless, nanny state bullsh!t.  It’s so patently ridiculous that people prefer to ignore it.

Therein lies the problem in today’s America.

My son went to a private school last and once we moved I thought we would try the public school system again. The amount of rules that have to be followed is ridiculous. 

 

His school always serves refried beans as a side dish, seriously how many kids eat that crap.

You totally missed the point NJJ.  Fish is meat and most kids love fish sticks.  The scenario in NY is an uber liberal mayor who in the past has tried to ban soft drinks and salt, now meat in children's diets.  What the citizens of NY want is eat is absolutely none of his business.

Does it strike anyone else as absurd that the man who wants to protect these kids from eating "unhealthy" meat is also the same guy that promotes killing of children up to the time of birth?

I got lazy and started putting money into my kids accounts at school for lunches instead of making them at home. After spring break is over theyve asked me to start preparing their lunches again, except Wednesdays, that's pizza day.. they said everything else during the week is nasty now. I'm going back to making homemade lunches so I know what my kids are getting and most likely I'll save some $$$ ! Each year they MAKE us fill out a form to see if we qualify for reduced or free lunches.. we never do but it's such a pain to fill out all that stuff.. they need a certain amount of applications I guess to get funding for it. I dont like the way some of these programs work. So what if your child brings lunch from home on this meatless Monday and hes got a big juicy ham sammich!!?

As I understand it that's acceptable but for a lot of the inner city kids from poor homes what they get at school is pretty important.

Our school in small town Lusk Wyoming decided to have control of our own lunch program and no longer take govnerment funding for school food. All beef is donated from local ranchers. Every Tues is some kind of Taco Tuesday - nachos, soft or hard shell etc, but along the lines of tacos. The kids went from dumping most of their lunches in the trash (Obama lunch program) to nearly eating it all and some go back for 2nds. They also have a salad bar every day that includes fresh fruit. I wish I ate that good when I was a kid.

Was it a Catholic school? Here, even the Catholic schools have to make meat available on Friday (even though no [coughs] self-respecting Catholic is supposed to eat meat on Friday), that is a state law.

 

Good grief, Charlie Brown, what will they think of next?

I feel like it's Michelle Obama all over again.  The government has not bussiness or right to tell us what we/school needs to feed our kids.  This is all about the "Green New Deal" if you are keeping up with the news.  AOC wants to ban cows, air, travel, all fossil fuel.  I know we all get tired of hearing these thins but best to know what is going on.  3 Muslim congress women....better be scared.  Crazy
