Students are being told to leave the Christmas cookies, cakes, candy bars, and soda at home and to bring fruits, unsweetened juices, popcorn and raisins instead.
Well, at least they are not banning them because “Christmas” might “offend” someone.
But the thought process behind the ban is just as offensive.
Superintendent Everett Olsen says the ban on holiday sweets has nothing to do with being politically correct, rather, his motive is simply promoting a healthy lifestyle.
“We aren’t trying to take the Christmas out of Christmas. We’re not trying to take the enjoyment out of children’s lives. We’re just trying to act responsible,” he told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mike Macklin.
Ah, the Nanny State rolls on, minding everyone else’s business. This is an intrusion upon our collective liberty. Sure that is a strong statement, but it is also true.
