Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

American society still features a fair degree of freedom and respect for the individual. We’d all be pretty shocked were a public-school bureaucrat to dredge up Plato’s old notion of forcibly removing babies from the care of their parents and letting the state raise them communally.

We’re not that far gone. Nobody advocates the utter communization of the care and feeding of the young.

Instead, we confront more incremental yet ever-bolder assaults on parental responsibility and rights in favor of such Grand Liberal Ideas as Puritanical State-Subsidized Nutrition. Thus, the educrats at a Chicago public school, Little Village Academy, prohibit kids from bringing lunch from home.

Yep. Not only are students prohibited from toting squirt guns and pictures of paper knives, at LVA they’re now also prohibited from importing such dangerous products as Coca Cola and Twinkies. It’s all about “healthier choices,” blathers a Chicago Public School spokeswoman, who stresses that it’s up to individual schools whether to adopt such bans. After all, what could be “healthier” than training families to be dependent on the state for homogenized sustenance?

Not surprisingly, some Little Village kids dislike the cafeteria food. Sometimes they throw it in the garbage. “We should bring out own lunch! We should bring our own lunch!” they shout when asked about the policy.

They should do more than chant. They should flout the ban en masse.

They can’t all be arrested for smuggling in peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    For the Obama-jugenbund, freedom is a little brown shirt.

    “The weak must be chiselled away. I want young men and women who can suffer pain. A young German must be as swift as a greyhound, as tough as leather, and as hard as Krupp’s steel.”

    “I will have no intellectual training. Knowledge is ruin to my young men.”

    How long before the perpetual war machine runs out of cannon fodder and the Obamadamerung sets up another draft. First stop, the 21st Century Conservation Youth Service Corps, currently being pushed.

    With the newly dead economy, the only summer jobs available will be the government supplied jobs that mandate that our teens join the government Corps if they want to work. And there they will get daily exposure to all of the progressive/socialist ideas.

    “But we can not accomplish the change we need to accomplish for our world, for our country, for our communities, for all of you, for all of our families unless we have the young people of our country and the world involved.”

    Which ideas? Global warming, anti-energy, redistribution, and social (equal results) justice.

    During any health-care or proper-diet discussion, there is one big thing missing… allergies. Everyone is allergic to something and, for every substance there is someone allergic to it. Although, one may not live long enough to find out which.

    Allergic reactions range from a minor rash, to nervousness, to death. Perhaps there should be a TOTAL BAN ON FOOD in government schools.
