    Feds should worry about Marine detained in Mexico, not school bake sales

    School board member: Feds should worry about Marine detained in Mexico, not school bake sales

    “There are many other issues that our country needs to address, but somehow this was a priority. As an example, we spent more time discussing this bake-sale exemption than the federal government has spent trying to bring home a highly-decorated Marine, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who is languishing in a Mexican prison for no fault of his own.”
    JACKSONVILLE – The ground is crumbling under Michelle Obama’s signature initiative worse than a low-fat cookie.

    Numerous school districts across the country are moving swiftly to stop receiving reimbursements from the National School Lunch Program and in return, are giving themselves more freedom to decide lunch menus and bake sales at the local level.

    The Duval County, Florida board is the latest to authorize its superintendent to authorize bake sales and sidestep the newly imposed rules championed by Michelle Obama.

    At a recent meeting, the board voted 6-1 to allow “junk food” in bake sales, the Florida Times-Union reports.
    At least one board member believes the federal government has more important things to worry about.

    “You see the federal government, in its great and never ending wisdom, decided that it was priority to tell Duval County parents what they could or couldn’t have at bake sales,” board member Jason Fischer said at the meeting.

    “There are many other issues that our country needs to address, but somehow this was a priority. As an example, we spent more time discussing this bake-sale exemption than the federal government has spent trying to bring home a highly-decorated Marine, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who is languishing in a Mexican prison for no fault of his own.”

    Tahmooressi has been languishing in a Mexican prison for over 100 days after making a wrong turn and ending up in the country. At a checkpoint, he voluntarily declared he had firearms legally in his possession and was detained.

    “How about we bring him home and let the parents of Duval County decide the contents of a local bake sale. I’m proud that we rejected that federal overreach,” Fischer concluded.

    Prior to the meeting, Jacksonville.com reported:

    Vitti asked the School Board for exemption power at least for the current school year, to give groups, PTAs, booster clubs and athletic directors time to find other ways to raise money instead of selling pizza, baked goods or candy.


    “We’re talking about a culture that has been established in the school system … that can’t be eliminated overnight,” he said.


    Vitti warned that there would be a “shock” if certain groups can’t sell cookies. Board member Fred Lee agreed, recommending the district get PTA input, the newspaper reported.

    “It’s OK for kids to eat a small amount of cake or candy or to have a cupcake at a birthday party,” Fischer said at the time.
