Gov. Noisesome–er, Newsome–with his public policy adviser
Well, from now on, there is free lunch in California–free school lunch, that is. Free for all the kiddies whether their families pay the school lunch fee or not. This is thanks to a new law called–get your barf bag ready–“Creating California For All.” What the dickens does that mean?
And as icing on the cake, once again we see adults taking their marching orders from a child: in this case, a 9-year-old boy who “drew attention” to the disgraceful practice of “lunch shaming.” ( https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/california-lunch-shaming-bill-meals) Like, if you don’t pay your lunch fee, you have to eat an “alternative lunch.” They make it sound like the kids are forced to eat carpet beetles. Anyway, says the governor, Gavin Noiseome–oops: Newsome–“this amazing young man” (suddenly everything is “amazing”, have you noticed that?) saved up his allowance until he had $74.80 to pay for his classmates’ lunches and it was an “honor” for the governor to meet him.
Disregarding whether we believe in this, er, performance or not, don’t you find it more than just a little creepy, the way they’re all trotting out children now to make political points? Really, the more I think about that story, the less I believe it.
Question: If the state of California is going to provide free school lunch for all, why should anybody pay their lunch fees?
And Bernie sez it’ll be free lunch in all the schools in America if we totally lose our minds and elect him president. Stay tuned for some other Democrat to offer free supper, too.
