Put Down the Cupcake: New
Ban Hits School Bake Sales

Wall Street Journal, by Stephanie Armour

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/3/2014 8:42:20 AM

At Chapman School in Nebraska, resourceful students hawk pizza and cookie dough to raise money for school supplies, field trips and an eighth-grade excursion to Washington. They peddle chocolate bars to help fund the yearbook. But the sales won´t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars. Jeff Ellsworth, principal of the kindergarten through eighth-grade school in

Think this is bad? Just the start. By accepting federal money state and local officials invited these thugs in. At what point is it more cost effective to refuse the federal education money?

I assume the ban can only be applied to items sold on school grounds so sell them elsewhere. Just spread the word as to where they are being sold.

There are more calories in an average granola bar than in an average cupcake. That being said, however, this good food / bad food stuff needs to stop. The government should not be the arbiter of what I buy, what I sell, what I eat, and what I don´t eat. Our country has turned into Hotel California. We are all just prisoners here of our own device.

It is NOT a federal law. It was not passed by Congress and signed by the President.
It is a federal regulation issued by non-elected unaccountable Federal agency.
Schools can tell the Feds to stuff it, but not if they want to receive their federal funding for school meals.
They should still tell the Feds to stuff it, and sue them to get their funding, which is derived from their own taxes

When they have a dinner at the White House do they adhere to nutritional guidelines as outlined by Michelle Obama? DO the food police examine every item that is going to be served and publish the calories, sodium, carbohydrates etc on the items served? OR at the White House they are allowed to be guttons and everyone else must suspend enjoying a cupcake made by a Mom?

you misunderestimate the totalitarian petty rulers of your local schools. There are many of them who are just fine with forcing their ideas of good behavior and mind control on anybody within their grasp. They are one with the Department of Education and other Marxist dictator wannabes in the Federal Government. This is just the start. With Common Core all the little kiddies will soon be singing of the great leader Obama.

Once again, the comments reveal how many commenters did not read the article. If those commenters had gotten past the sensational intro paragraphs, they would have observed:

The law also . . . allowed for "infrequent" fundraisers, and STATES were allowed to decide how many bake sales they would have that DIDN´T meet nutrition standards.

Without STATE-approved exemptions, any treats sold would have to meet calorie, sodium, fat and other requirements. The law permits STATES to FINE schools that don´t comply.

. . .

Each STATE can mandate the number of daytime fundraisers held each year that BUCK the nutrition requirements. But so far, 32 STATES have OPTED to stay strictly in the healthy zone . . . .

(Emphasis mine)

Why are most STATES falling in line with the Federal government? So they can enrich their coffers with FINES?

Why were children growing up in the 30´s to the 70´s not obese? Why is there such an obesity problem today and not back then?

1. There were fewer people on food stamps who eat junk. Junk food is cheap and requires no preparation. Lazy parents make for lazy kids.

2. Children today are not riding bicycles, running, playing, jumping, swimming and participating in sports nearly as much. Remember the mandatory Phys Ed classes we had?

3. Children are sitting slack-jawed all day with their computers, iPads, iPhones and have become sedentary.

Junk food, which in my opinion is great stuff like fries, chips, burgers, hot dogs with "the works", grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, poutine, and deep-fried-anything has always been available, but only lately is there a childhood obesity problem.

It isn´t the food, it´s the culture. But it´s a good excuse for the government to get involved in private lives in yet another way.

I remember Devil Dogs, Hostess cupcakes with chocolate icing and that white icing swirl, Sky Bars, ice cream sodas, Bonomo Turkish Taffy (vanilla), Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas on a stick, Ice Cream Sandwiches, marshmallows, Rollettes, buttered popcorn, Twinkies, sugary sodas, Kool-Aid, and scores of other junk foods I no longer have a desire. We didn´t get fat as kids because we were physically active like kids should be.

Kids are fat today because they are permitted to sit on their lazy arses and get fat. (This doesn´t apply to children with hormone or endocrine problems.)

If the gov´t wanted to address the childhood obesity problem sensibly, they would emphasize exercise, not fat and calorie restriction.

Michelle´s food program wastes millions of dollars because kids won´t eat the crap she wants kids to eat. When did she become Food Czarina?

michelle obama is NOT an elected official, why are there federal laws being passed on state run entities, on her behalf?

" to raise money for school supplies, field trips and an eighth-grade excursion to Washington. " Once again this is going to mean that a majority of these kids will not be getting their supplies, or go on field trips, get new band or sports equipment or go to Washington to see how the democrats ruin everything.

Just as with the school lunch program, those schools who opted out and got cut out of federal money for the school lunch program, make MORE $$ now, even with the loss of the fed money. Why, because the kids are not throwing her garbage for food into the trash and still going home hungry.

Yet, she cannot even control her own family, while her husband chomps down hamburgers and slurpees in public. She herself got caught eating hamburgers french fries and fat cakes (that is what they are called) in Botswana.

So, the king and queen of America does not have to live by their own rules and standards just the rest of the servants.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

ABC’s Jonathan Karl put White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on the hot spot today about how President Obama could say the U.S. “underestimated” ISIS when several high-ranking officials warned of the threat months ago. And what Karl asked is whether this was underestimation on the part of the intel community or on the part of the president. Karl brought up congressional testimony last November from Assistant Secretary of State Brett McGurk. In his statements to the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee [PDF], McGurk spoke of multiple attacks ISIS had carried out last year, and explained how ISIS has been able to thrive: AQ/ISIL

There is likely much gnashing of teeth in the intelligence community today in the wake of Obama’s interview with 60 Minutes last night. He laid the blame for the rise of the Islamic State at the feet of the intelligence community. “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” said the commander in chief on national television.

On Sixty Minutes, President Barack Obama said that his administration had “underestimated” the rise of the Islamic State. Recent history supports a case that the President and his counselors have underestimated the entire crisis of disorder in the Arab world at least since the 2011 Libya intervention. Libya’s anarchy today is where the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq is headed swiftly. The chaos of the Islamic State is capable of pulling down with it Jordan, Lebanon, the Gulf States and, unless they are ruthlessly lucky, Turkey and Iran, too. How bad is Libya?

It’s becoming a disturbing trend.

From Seattle, Washington to West Orange, New Jersey, Brown left four bodies in his wake. But the national press refused to report on his case until weeks after he was indicted. Almost none outside local media outlets in Seattle noted that Brown had intentionally targeted gay men is his campaign of vengeance. A Seattle-based Fox affiliate called Brown a “radical

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

Leading astrologers say that Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is destined for a future working on social justice and will enjoy a strong relationship with her proud grandparents, Hillary and Bill. After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter. “She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that
