It's not propaganda. I just happen to value my health and making responsible decisions in terms of diet and, apparently, other people do not.

But I think we're rapidly drifting away from the original discussion. I really disagree with the idea of banning chocolate milk, and I don't even like chocolate milk. IMO it's unnecessary and demonstrates the ways in which the government can overstep its bounds. If officials and educators are trying to improve childrens' health, they can always extend recess and phys ed by a few minutes. This could help not just for physical fitness but also for general well-being.

As far what I said earlier about banning the king-size sodas, let me emphasize, I understand why Bloomberg wanted to ban it, and in theory it makes sense. In practice, though, it's a bad idea. And that comment about banning sodas larger than a baby, that was just something I call a joke. I still think soda is crap, though. Which is why I seldom consume it.

Oooh boy. Lol. Yup I know a bunch of kids who'll crave getting their protein from "entirely distinguishable" beverage.

AND. Btw.glucose is necessary for brain function. It isn't at all bad to have some healthy carbs.
There are other sources of protein, calcium, glucose, and carbs - they're called food. I'm not saying milk is bad, just that maybe it's time to revisit a government mandate on it in schools. Must be nice to be in the milk lobby business.

I love it how we vote these people in then act surprised when they do things like this.

Sorry - didn't mean to infer that you're a lobbyist or have some sort of stake in this. My bad, poor phrasing on my part. I just meant that it must be good to be in a business where the gov mandates buyers, that's all.

Yes- and milk is good food too. Thanks for agreeing. Actually I'd like them to make it lactose free, but that's another story.

I think its comical that you people vote these rejects into office and then get all pissy when they make these stupid laws to control you.
