SAME food, SAME clothing, SAME shelter, SAME experiences... That's communism, as in Mao's Cultural Revolution. (I mean, except for the party leaders.) Inch by inch, this progressive thinking is encroaching on our liberties.
So now, in a PUBLIC school, you can only bring lunch from home - whether a Fluffernutter sandwich w/chocolate milk or a whole-grain pita pocket filled with tempeh, lettuce, & tomatoes w/organic carrot juice - IF a doctor writes a note verifying you have a MEDICAL CONDITION that warrants a special diet. What are they going to do if a child is caught carrying contraband carrots? Call the police?
Maybe. Here, a 5-year old was picked up from school and taken home by police for not wearing the SAME SHOES as everyone else (had to be black, and the mother's using a marker to color the only pair of shoes he had... had left some tell-tale streak of the color beneath). http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/01/18/cops-nab-five-yea...
