Another attack against parents’ rights

Shortly after Barack Obama took office in early 2009, his wife, Michelle, started badmouthing America and letting everyone know how embarrassed she was to live here. When she realized her comments were not sitting well even with the liberals who got her husband elected, she shifted gears and was soon focusing on childhood obesity.

Like her husband, it’s not enough for Michelle to just spout off her opinions. She wants to make laws that will force people to behave the way she wants them to. And even if she can’t get laws passed about what should or should not be in a kid’s lunchbox, at the very least she figured she’d influence school officials to carry that torch for her.

Well, it looks like she’s had some success in the Denver area. Recently a grade school in Aurora, Colorado refused to let a 4-year-old child eat the Oreos her mother had packed in her lunchbox. Instead, the school sent a note home to the mother, telling her that the cookies were not healthy enough to be feeding her young child.

The girl’s lunch also included a sandwich and cheese, which the school graciously allowed her to eat. The note told the girl’s mother that in the future she needs to include fruit and a vegetable in a lunchbox, plus a healthy snack to replace items such as Oreos.

Forgetting for a moment that the Oreo is the greatest cookie in the history of cookies, it’s just mind-boggling to me that schools feel they have the right to overrule parents in terms of what a child should eat at lunch.

But it’s all part of the Obama agenda. Just keep giving more and more power to government and the places that control easily-influenced children and less and less power to the people. It’s the exact opposite of what our Founding Fathers had in mind and it’s time we elected officials who want to shrink the government down to its intended size.

Just out of curiosity, if you ever received a note from a school telling you what you should or shouldn’t put in your child’s or grandchild’s lunch box, how would you respond?
