    What did you expect would happen when we allow the feds to get so involved in our lives?

    Ridiculously intrusive government regs.

    The school should not pay the fine and take it to court.

    I wonder who turned them in.

    Selling soda in public schools? I guess the LDS has lost control of Utah.

    This is all part of Michelle Obama's meddling in the school lunch program and a Congress (including RINO Republicans) who went along with it and passed it.

    And the Michelle Obama food is ending up in the lunch room garbage (uneaten) to the tunes of millions of dollars of tax payer dollars per year. This is what happens when the long arm of unelected regulators stretch out their grip under the permissive eye of Congress. More tax dollars wasted.

    How does this have anything to do with Michelle Obama? It was illegal to sell it during meals when I was in high school, and now my own kids are getting ready to graduate. That was long before Obama was in office.

    Allowing children access to caffeinated drinks has always been a school/government agency dealing with kids issue in most places to my knowledge, since they are underage and caffeine is a drug with known effects.

    Never heard of it before. It wasn't when I was in school or my son was in school. Up until recently there were caffeinated drinks in my grandkid's school in the vending machines. Might have been a regional thing, but now it's a federal thing.

    <edited> OK, I just checked, this law about turning off the vending machines during lunch isn't MO's fault, it has been a law in the 2000s. My bad.

    That doesn't change the fact that she meddled...

    Just another example of our social destruction. We have no relationship to the vision of our founders as a nation.
