Mussolini Lives!

At the Ohio Statehouse nonetheless.

Never can have too many councils. Enact this bill -- together with Strickland's energy re-regulation plan -- and we are back to Italy in the 1920's and 30's.

Thank goodness parents are idiots. Otherwise, state representatives from both sides of the aisle would have nothing to do.

According to the Ohio School Boards Association:

HB 254, sponsored by Rep. Jon Peterson (R-Delaware) and Rep. Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) received proponent testimony this week. HB 254 would establish the Ohio Child Wellness Advisory Council, and establish nutritional standards for certain foods and beverages sold in public and chartered nonpublic schools.

Those providing supportive testimony on the bill included JoAnne Robinett, supervisor of student nutrition for Beavercreek City Schools, and Jan Ritter, a dietician at Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Can you even imagine what organizations will be lobbying the council, and who will be sitting on it? Greed and nanny-ism!

Yes, thank goodness parents are idiots, because if I didn't have to pay taxes to support all these state-funded programs, I'd have no idea what to do with all that money.

On second thought, our car is 12 years old and needing repairs. When was the last time you saw a 12-yr-old state vehicle? HA.
