Fine let's make the IHSA open their books and meetings to scrutiny but state government should not be allowed to control high school sports. Government screws up everything it touches and we don't need state government screwing up high school sports too.

How about if they get food stamps and a free lunch, the food stamp amount if lowered by what the free lunches cost. As that is double dipping. WHY should the taxpayers have to pay them twice of more for the same thing?

If you get more then you paid in, it is an ENTITLEMENT. As it is someone else's money. If you get a deduction, you get to keep more of YOUR money. Liberals think the money people earn belongs to the government or other people, so if you get to keep some of the money you earn, liberals view that as an entitlement. There in lies the problem with this country. If you earn the money and you get…

These kids would do fine on rice, beans, PBJ and any number of CHEAP healthy foods that people have been getting by on for millennia. I know. My parents raised 6 and everyone of us was skinny, healthy, and had a full stomach every day. We were eligible for every program out there at the time, but my father would have none of it. We packed our lunches until the school system wouldn't allow it.…

There should be no cheating of course, but this is one place where tax money goes directly to making it a little easier to raise kids. I'm for that. I'm for a subsidy/entitlement/credit whatever ... for families raising children, even if they have seemingly marginal need. Money for school lunches is a rather direct way of providing that, with no way to directly divert that money. I guess…

Country of Origin Label issue heard in court

6 months, 2 weeks ago From NFU

National Farmers Union is an intervener

 

 National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson issued the following statement following the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit hearing arguments in the ongoing Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) lawsuit in which NFU is an intervener:
 

“Today’s argument presents to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit the question of whether the U.S. District Court’s denial of the preliminary injunction on the implementation of the May 2013 revised regulations on COOL on meat products should be upheld. The May decision was a victory for supporters of COOL. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) new COOL rules brought the United States into compliance with the World Trade Organization. 

“This case is about the ability of consumers to make informed decisions on their purchases of meat products. At a time when consumers are asking for more information about the origins and content of their food, it is important that the court uphold its original decision. The USDA revised regulations provide consumers more information and should reduce confusion for consumers at retail.

 

“While the packer-producer groups and foreign competitors have sought to limit the consumer’s ability to know the origins of their food, NFU and our allies strongly supported the government position that a preliminary injunction wasn’t appropriate.

 

“We are hopeful that the D.C. Circuit’s decision will uphold the district court’s denial of the preliminary injunction.”
