WASHINGTON — Don't touch my brownies!
A child nutrition bill on its way to President Barack Obama — and championed by the first lady — gives the government power to limit school bake sales and other fundraisers that health advocates say sometimes replace wholesome meals in the lunchroom.(link)
Can anyone say "nanny state?" It seems to be that whether or not to allow cupcake sales at school should be dealt with at the school level or at the school board level. Do we really need this kind of micromanagement from Washington? Are we not capable of self governance? What is next? Will they regulate your backyard garden?
