Nanny State Alert: Latest Danger In Schools? - 'Flamin' Hot Cheetos'

Posted by Brian

How does freedom end?

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out–  because I was not a communist; 
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out– because I was not a socialist; 
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out– because I was not a trade unionist; Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out– because I was not a Jew; 
Then they came for me– and there was no one left to speak out for me.

When Is A Cheeto Not Just A Cheeto?
This is the kind of crap our precious public schools are concerned with?  Friggin' Cheetos?! The so-called reason is that they are not nutritious enough, and have too much salt.  I'm calling bull crap.  This is step one.  I can assure you that there are other foods out there with more salt and are less nutritious which are yet to come under fire. Of course the media are out there reporting the propaganda, dutifully nodding in agreement. "Yes, we probably do get too much salt in our diets.  It's comforting to know that there are people out there looking out for our children".  It would be refreshing, shocking actually, to hear one anchor say, "Why are the schools getting involved in this? Shouldn't this be the responsibility of the child's parents"? But we won't hear that.
This is one more example of some power-hungry bureaucrats wresting more power, more responsibility away from parents and the general public.  Of course, they are "doing it for the children".  Well, that's crap, too! If they had any concern for the children, they would be more motivated with giving children a quality education in the basic knowledge skills that the kids are going to need to be successful, and less concerned about what they eat, whether Heather has two mommy's or six daddy's, or whether Johnny knows how to properly put a condom on a banana! For you teachers who are getting more offended by the second, I am not addressing those of you who are ham-strung by the teacher's unions and education extablishment, (unless you are a left-wing libtard who buys into and blindly supports all of this crap, with zero cognitive ability to think for yourself). I am talking about the educational glitterati in the DOE, the Teachers Unions, and the so-called liberal elitists in politics, who see kids as lab rats, and our schools as their science rooms and indoctrination centers in which to perform their liberal social experiments.
Test scores dropping, graduation rates plummeting, and our bastions of social experimentation are more concerned with kids eating "Flamin' Hot Cheetos', undermining parental rights' with free birth control medication and condoms for students, banning American Flag shirts on Cinco De Mayo Day which might offend the Latino's, and removing banners from school auditoriums because it has the word "God" or "Lord" in it and might offend some atheists.
I don't know about any of the rest of you, but I have put up with about as much as I can take with all of this government intrusion into virtually every aspect of our lives.  Whether parenting, business, eating, how large our soda's are, how much salt we can have, the type of light bulbs we can buy, how much water our toilets use, ad infinitum, there is government.  You literally can't take a crap without the government being involved.
For anyone who is still undecided about this election, or who says that there is no difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, you may be a lost cause.  On the one hand is candidate Obama who is rooted in the ideology of Marxism and is quickly moving down the path of European Socialism, or worse.  He supports this kind of crap!  His wife advocates for it, with her portion-controlled so-called "Healthy Lunches" programs, which half of the students hate, and end up throwing in the trash. On the other hand we have Mitt Romney who, though not my ideal candidate, I am 100% behind in this election, because the alternative is the end of the American society as we know it.  At least he doesn't advocate for this level of government intrusion.  Though some of his ideas still grow government, they slow the growth to a pace where we can still turn the Great Ship around.  But, we have to elect conservative men and women to both Houses of Congress and the Presidency, not just in this election, but the next TEN! It took decades to get to this point, and it's going to take a huge turnover of our leaders to get out of this mess.
Voting third party in this election is not an option.  It may have been in the past, but this election is a turning point.  To all of those who want, or are going to vote for Gary Johnson, here's a little insight for you.  I'll even whisper it: He can't win. He can only cause Romney to lose.
If Romney loses by a few votes in a few states because enough votes are siphoned off to Johnson, then welcome to the USSA. Think it can't happen? Bush won in Florida by 537 votes. (I don't want to hear how the "Supreme Court stole the election and gave it to Bush" crap either.  All recounts, even by the NY Times, said Bush would have won. And don't forget that Ralph Nader peeled off 97K votes, most of which, likely, would have gone to Gore.  Blame Nader.)  How about Al 'Stuart Smalley' Franken's election in Minnesota, which was determined by only 312 votes? Still think every vote doesn't matter?
But no worries.  If something were to happen where Romney ends up losing a few key states, and it's because people decided to cast their vote for Gary Johnson, or in protest, just don't vote at all, and we all wake up to find that Obama has won with 271 electoral votes: be assured that you can rest easy, knowing that you remained true to your "principles" , as you find yourself watching Obama dismantle what remains of this once great country.
Am I really this fired up about Cheeto's?  Not if this were an isolated incident.  It is the compounding of all of these little things, the creeping incrementalism  of government seizing more and more of our freedoms by liberal and statists in our schools and government, all with the certainty that "We, The People" will continue to accept it.  Well, I'm done with accepting the crap-sandwiches that they keep trying to shove down our throats!
If you're willing to continue accepting these types of assaults on your individual liberty, or just want to "get along", then you are part of the problem.
If you're willing to start fighting back, starts now with friends, family, co-workers, and others to ensure that as many conservatives as possible get to the polls on November 6th and send Obama packing on January 20th.!

ANOTHER SNACK ATTACK! SCHOOLS MOVE TO BAN ‘FLAMIN’ HOT CHEETOS’
Posted on October 19, 2012 at 11:08am by Mike Opelka

If we’re talking about schools and lunches, you can bet that the story is about another wave of “Nanny State-ism.”
The latest move in the effort to take complete control over the lives of students swirls around a very specific member of the snack food world, the very popular, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. If the schools have their way, “Hot Cheetos” will be treated like illegal drugs on school property.
