Wherefore Art Thou Chick-fil-A?

I can't believe it. There is only one Chick-fil-A restaurant in the entire state of New York? But that's what the Chick-fil-A locator states. The closest one for me is in Scranton, two hours away. Other than that, New York City has one.

I really wanted to try their sandwiches ever since the queers and the First Lady have disparaged them.

From Townhall:
The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A.

It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program.
Okay. Hold it right there. Just the mention of "plump juicy breasts" and "hot buttered buns" is going to set Moochelle's teeth on edge. Put breasts and buns in conjunction with a school lunch program and it's going to get ugly early. You might even get the DoJ involved.
The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.

The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories.
I don't remember Congress voting on this; anyone else? The Snack Act?
That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues.

And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A sandwiches at school.

“They don’t meet the standards,” Principal Paul Browning told the Myrtle Beach Sun News. “We’re struggling with it.”
The standards are this: let the kids eat playground grass. It's low in calories and you get oodles of carbon credits since you don't have to run the lawn mowers.
Hunger pains aside, there’s another consequence to the Chick-fil-A ban – all the profits funded field trips for the school’s special education students. 
“The Chick-fil-A profits went directly to the field trips,” the principal told the newspaper. “We’ve got to raise some money, but we will figure something out.” 
Maybe they could get the math students to figure out how many carrot sticks they’ll have to sell to send the youngsters to Six Flags.
Obviously the only solution is for these kids to declare themselves illegal aliens. The sky's the limit then.

There is so much wrong with everything, as I see things. Snacks? Schools shouldn't be selling crap, good or bad. Have parents gotten so lazy they can't even pack their kids off to reeducation camps without food? And, why are schools allowed to do business with a captive population, compelled by state and maybe federal law? Anyone see any ethics problems here?

Schools get far more than enough to educate kids, about which they do a pisspoor job. Far too much, by double or triple actually. Declining test scores internationally, and some other things, prove the point. What needs to happen is the teacher union needs to have it's neck snapped like a chicken, then be defeathered and boiled until the stock is worth saving. After that, the whole system, top to bottom, needs to be gutted and left for the locals to decide, the mandate removed so better kids aren't forced in if they have better opportunities and nasty little monsters are no longer tolerated via compulsion on both sides. And the money flow has to stop. It has clotted education's arteries... they've stroked themselves into the most evil virulent form of communism as a union and institution. On tax payer's dimes.... quarters, dollars, life blood.

Since it's NY -- Maybe the kids should all cross into Canada and then step back into the US, declaring themselves illegal aliens...

Doom - as of 2011, NY state was spending $19,076.03 per student and bringing in $21,489.44 per student. Huh?

LL - This post was about a school in SC, but the Canadian border is only 70 miles from my county. I may change my name to Pedro and wander over.
