Sugar and condoms

I have a question for you; where would we be w/o that purveyor of truth and tolerance…. the education system? What must it be like to be so concerned about children that you can begin to dictate what they are allowed to eat at school and more importantly at home.
I bought some frosted flakes the other day and failed to notice that they came with a 3rd less sugar. Let me make this crystal clear. There is only one reason why I buy frosted flakes….FOR THE FROSTED PART!
If I wanted frosted flakes with the sugar removed I would have bought Wheaties! My wife tells me the kids can’t bring sodas to school or snack cakes because the school is so concerned about obesity. They desperately don’t want my kids getting fat by food.
They also don’t want them getting fat because of pregnancy but apparently that’s a different fix. Condoms are available so our kids can have sex but it won’t make them fat. THERE’S your moral compass from the secular humanist. Heck if you encourage indulgence without consequences then why not be consistent and apply it to food?
Kids should be taught how to eat whatever and how much they want including snack cakes and Twinkies and then just teach them how to throw up. What’s the difference? Have sex…no pregnancy, or, eat empty calories then we’ll teach you how to remove the danger through the free-choice of purging, heck we’ll even call it your constitutional right! All without inconveniently notifying you’re parents. I mean isn’t that what school was intended for.
Sure we have a problematic national school system that ranks near the bottom in math and such. But I’ll bet we’re at the top of the list when it comes to teaching kids what to eat and how to use prophylactics.
Remember we live in a society whose chief aim is to allow us to indulge our appetites. Whatever I desire becomes my “right”. Really? I desire frosted flakes with a third MORE sugar. I want at least a cup poured at the bottom of the box to ensure my sugar fix; but no, not with big brother at the helm. The new battle cry for school kids is simple,
Don’t deny me and don’t judge me either as my self-esteem couldn’t take the hit. Of course reading and writing and arithmetic have their place, but when I fail at it you can teach me how to sue others for bias or prejudice or emotional distress. That’s what the founding fathers had in mind for school, to teach me and ESPECIALLY others…that no one is more important than me!
Yes school really came into its own when it began to be run by the politically correct and no longer demanded personal responsibility. You removed swats and discipline along time ago and OH aren’t kids nicer now? Finally you created a learning environment where kids can be trusted with automatic weapons.
All of this and you think that the real problem for our kids isn’t moral absolutes; it’s with sugar in frosted flakes? Enough is enough. This is education in America baby! Stay away from my sugar and pass the condoms, just like the founding fathers intended.

I enjoyed your take on where our moral compass has shifted to. I have chosen to home school my children due to the garbage in our schools, and God wouldn’t leave me alone about it. It was like he was no longer my co-pilot in this situation. :-)

Well spoken, right to the real issue. Thus, this article will make people not like you. Truth is unpopular.

Thanks for the courage and the humor that gets the point said all the better.

I absolutely loved this post. I just thank God I don’t have to go to school in this day and age. Here’s another little tid bit that has made news: Not only are kids not allowed to bring certain lunches but the cafeterias(in order to save moeny) are now required to serve hamburgers, shall we say, ‘enhanced’ with what they call ‘pink slime’? It’s a chemical they use to make the meat last longer. How on God’s green Earth did the government think that this was healthier than a ham and cheese sandwich with a bag of potato chips? Instead, they’re serving cancer on a bun and calling it a hamburger. Pink slime has been banned in so many places. Now, they’re serving it to our growing children? How has this world gotten so turned around? Because people want God out of everything. This country is forgetting God and He will turn His back on this land. I wish these people would stop trying to dictate every part of our lives. We don’t want a communist society. If I want a cookie, I’m eating the cookie!!
