Stop “helping”.

Newly proposed federal regulations aimed at the snack foods and drinks served in the nation’s schools could come with a hefty price tag.

The American Action Forum estimates the regulations, which include caps on serving sizes and calorie counts, will cost schools $127 million and require more than 926,000 hours of paperwork.

All of this just so the kids delay their first bag of Doritos for the day by a few hours. Once they realize the kids are still scarfing down the stuff at home, Michelle Obama will probably start scheduling personal finger-wagging visits.

Also, aren’t we forever being told that schools don’t have enough money to pay teachers well?

What child, in what freakin' universe listens to a damned thing any grown-up has to say. Especially one with THAT Particular hair style, and 'That' tone in her voice.
As a group and without exception this is viewed as a rolling joke by no less than 85% of all student populations in this country.
It's like Moochelle asking them to 'commit' to celibacy, just how long an attention span does she think they have?

"aren’t we forever being told that schools don’t have enough money to pay teachers well?"

It's true! Keeping staffs of well-paid administrators takes lots of resources. And those well-equipped, air-conditioned offices needed in order to discharge their necessary labors on behalf of the put-upon proletariat are also expensive.

From the article: Obama urged kids to give fruits and veggies a try, saying, "I want every kid to commit to not throwing out anything."

So, if government waste is bad, shouldn't she get her own house in order first?
