If you passed the Governor on the street and called him an incompetent clown every day, nothing would happen to you (probably). If a state employee did that, they'd probably be fired. And that would be no real violation of their "rights" as they wouldn't be in danger of real legal sanction


True, but by the same token if you started actively campaigning for a political candidate during your lunch hour, a private employer could fire you immediately. A government employer could not.

There are absolutely constitutionally protected actions in a government employment relationship. The Michelle Obama comment falls in between our two examples. The Coach, although in unnecessary terms, was taking a stance on a political position.

you missed the point dude.

A 200 lb male and a 90 lb girl have DIFFERENT MAINTENANCE CALORIC NEEDS. The use of athletes is to further show the absurdity of the BMI. Even ignoring that BMI is a worthless statistic for growing bodies, particularly adolescents.

that's the needs to maintain a healthy weight, to not negatively impact learning, and do help in proper immune response.

You favor limiting the big kid who isnt on the football team? He should be punished because his genes made him bigger? interdasting concept.

Don't know. I said the plans that she pushed were advised by nutritionists. Bengal countered with "WRONG, she is OBESE". Maybe he was responding to someone else.

She is the image for the "lunch plans" the spokes person the most visible representative.


As I wrote earlier, it's a worthy initiative, and it's not as though she's a rollie pollie. She's reasonably h/w proportionate and she's 50 years old. With as many as 50% of teens and young adults being classified as obese and being unable to run around the block without fainting, I don't think the First Lady should shy away from the problem just because she doesn't look like an aerobics instructor.

The coach should be fired immediately. We are working hard to teach our kids to not bully other kids and to respect each other. Everything this coach said flies in the face of respectful behavior. The coach is a bully who calls people names like "queer" and "fat ass." The last thing on Earth we need is morons like that teaching our kids.

I am NOT the "nanny state" dude. I absolutely say that to EVERYONE. I don't care if you live in Compton or Carmel.

People are losing homes and jobs and can barely afford groceries. Who says the kid has the money to leave campus and go eat somewhere else? Who says the parents of the kid can afford a private school? Who says government should be regulating schools just because they went broke building new million dollar schools nationwide for the price of: do as THEY say? Who says this kid should be forced to be home schooled to alleviate school regs he does not like?

Depends on how you do it. We had a former Colonel from AFRICOM run for Gabby Gifford's seat (Martha McSally) and a few folks (civilians) got their peepee's slapped for simply forwarding the e-mail announcing that she was running to some co-workers (whom they personally knew).

You wanna tell that to all the disenfranchised children in the inner cities whose school lunch may be the most calories they eat all day?


What about the school breakfasts generally provided to our at risk children? What about the nutritious meals their stay at home moms could make with the food stamp money they get? What about the commodities available at food pantries for the poor and various food projects in every inner city?

Any way the large bag of chips and large coke they had on the way to or from school probably has more calories.

There is no reason for hunger, there is considerable overlap in food programs. Poor nutrition is common in America particularly among the cognitively deficient.

EAT...MORE...SOMEWHERE...ELSE!!


Are you of the idea that all meals have to be of proportional size?

The 200 lb kid (non-athlete even) can eat more breakfast, eat a snack, eat a bigger dinner. I don't care WHERE he gets the additional calories.

I am not concerned that the lunch lady need to weigh the glop and match the calories to the fat / healthy / skinny kid in front of her.

Sorry....not sad for the bigger dude that his LUNCH isn't slightly more caloric than the svelte chick.


DO...NOT...CARE

I read this story in the newspaper the other day, and it barely mentioned Michelle Obama...just as this OP doesn't mention the comments on gays.

they're classified as overweight. Oh and BMI is for non-active lifestyle adults. Read up on it.

It is NOT to be used for children and adolescents., without caveats. Seriously, ask any doctor.

by her own metric, which is improperly applied to young adults/adolescents, she is overweight. maybe she she get herself into the target range before commenting on children.

Meh. That depends on his employment history. If this coach has a history of being a dick, then probably so...fire him. However if this is his first time where his "man talk" spilled over into an out of context situation then he deserves a second chance.

which has as much to do with the USDA's bull shite food pyramid than anything else.

another government created problem all because of certain farm subsidies.

There it is. The guy is there to do the job of teaching whatever his degree qualifies him to teach. His first responsibility is to the students who he's paid to teach. He's flaming the whole learning environment, and for that he can be fired.

He could have used different words to make the same points; but he chose the RCDfan version.

There are better ways

Does this preclude kids from EATING AT HOME? Bringing their own lunches? etc?


Um unless you decide sack lunchs are a no-no.

"Nutrition wise, it is better for the children to eat at the school," Carmona said. "It's about the nutrition and the excellent quality food that they are able to serve (in the lunchroom). It's milk versus a Coke.

So you can't in some schools even brown bag it.
