Call it what you want but it seems like the police and the govt get more power every year.

I agree with the fact that we are ceding more individual liberties to the government. BUT, in saying that, let's characterize "the Government" correctly. More and more, group rights are trumping individual liberties. Part of that is natural and necessary for a society of 300,000,000 to live and work together. Some of it is through laziness, some of it is b/c people on both sides rely on hyperbole, demagougery and emotional rhetoric that doesn't properly frame the question.

You want to protect individual liberty? Then frame the question properly - where do the rights of the group stop ('cause they/we have them) and the rights of the individual begin. Calling people nazis and part of police state plays into the hands of the "group rights" crowd because, underlying these intrusions is almost always a legitimate societal concern:

"Were not evil nazis, that's just a bunch of right wing scare tactics. We are just trying to make sure all of our kids are eating healthy lunches to combat the epidemic of youth obesity - which, by the way, these right wingers fail to mention is harming our children and costing us billions in health care dollars."

Re: Chicagoschool principal outlaws brown bag lunches.

I don't care for scare tactics either and the police statement I made was just sarcasm.

In this case the govt is supplementing or changing parental control with their own version of it.
I wouldnt have a problem with govt diet eggheads trying to educate more parents regarding child obesity.
But in this case they are literally taking potato chips out of kids hands and forcing carrot sticks into them.
efff that!

Here's another article on the same subject.
The school had the nerve to charge the parent for the forced lunch.
Maybe instead of schools they should be called govt re-education facilities.

Re: Chicagoschool principal outlaws brown bag lunches.

I agree with your position, it was just the characterism of the action with which I disagreed. Call it semantics but, to me, words and definitions - particularly in emotionally charged debates - are important.

The school lunch thing is really out of hand. I get the concern but somewhere, somehow some over zealous little bureaucrats are running rampant. I would be on the phone to my rep & the papers and be filing an injunctive action and a FOIA request to make that little bureaucrats life a living hell. City hall can be fought, you just need to be persistant, paper it up and hit'em where they hurt - i.e. make SOMEONE claim responsibility for it. As soon as someone - bureaucrat or politician - gets held accountable, watch how fast they move to change their unpopular position.
