This is a joke, right?

K-12 schools must allow boys into girls’ private areas to obtain federal funds for lunches, breakfasts, and snacks, the Biden administration announced this month. A U.S. Department of Education spokesman told The Federalist the Biden administration’s press releases from several agencies announcing this policy will be followed by formal rulemaking in June.

The actual policy appears to mean exactly that, although in typical Washington sidestep-speak they don't actually say it.

This is utterly ridiculous, but its common to the Federal Government and it came out of the "national" 55mph speed limit along with drinking regulations that should have, decades ago, been met with an immediate general uprising a clear statement that either the federal government cuts this crap out or it will be sacked, along with every employee of same.

Then again is it really just back to the the double nickel?


It's all the way back to Wickard .v. Filburn.

There's a price for not taking heads when that is exactly what needs to be done.

Welcome to government-sponsored Hell.  Oh, and homeschool your kids -- whether you live in a "Red" or "Blue" place.

Unless, of course, you're ok with a 16 year old dude sporting a big stiffy in your daughter's school restroom -- or locker room.

Maybe it's time for parents to pack their kids' lunches, like my mother did for me when I went to elementary school?

Maybe schools should get out of the lunch business? It's just a racket. No one in America is starving. Look at all the obese children.

Maybe parents should withdraw their kids from school and enroll them in private schools or homeschool them? Aren't parents responsible for their children's education?

If you have children, don't turn them over to the state to be raised. They will grow up to hate you and all that is good and right.

Biggest mistake I made was sending my boys to public school. Now that my middle son is a father, Im doing what I can to convince him to homeschool. At any cost. Yes I will regret for the rest of my life that I did not homeschool my boys. What a fucking joke its become. Except none of this is fucking funny. At all. Cheers all.

Well sheet, this is outrageous. Thank God we just got our last kid (daughter) out of high school. I really feel for parents that cannot afford private schools. Home schooling is their best bet.

When I was a young man, it always ticked me off that they used Federal funding to blackmail the states into raising the drinking age to 21. My motives were hardly pure, as I was 18 when NY hiked it to 21 (from 19.) We used to cross the border over to Fort Erie where we could drink legally (Ontario had a 19-year age limit.)

So why is this trans shit falling out of the sky all of the sudden? Why is the propaganda so intense coming from all quarters, including media, sports, Hollywood, etc.? The propaganda is so effective that I have read up to 10-20% of students are now gender confused. Maybe someone should check the water?

Brandon ran on a tranny platform. He said that it is the greatest civil rights issue of our time. And apparently, the most voters in the most secure election ever in recorded US history agreed.

I know the pubik skool unionz endorsed Brandon and his depraved bunch. I know most teecherz are lazy, immoral "progressive" karens, with ridiculously soft degrees, looking for full-time pay for part-time work. Those weeks off for summers off must be nice. And spring break, Christmas break (or do we have to call it Winter break now?), teecher days, etc. etc.

I know many breeders simply use skoolz as an extension of child and teen daycare. Why do we have skool feedings in the first place? Because lazy breeders can't even be bothered to toast a Pop-Tart for their "beloved" chillrens!! Anything to offload the responsibility of being an actual parent.

With the putrid educational product that has been delivered for the past decade or two, I was hoping that the wu flu lockdown would usher in a new mass form of remote education via zoom or something. It would be far cheaper, and the results CAN'T be any worse. I mean some districts are literally now mailing out diplomas, as to fail a student would be rayciss. "Graduating" despite being illiterate. After a dozen years at skool.

Colleges are not far behind, and entrance exams are becoming a thing of the past. The progressives have turned education into a giant turd, and now are flushing it down the toilet. Wiping their asses with it.

So you hood rats, you spoiled, overprivileged soccer moms (and simp husbands), and loudmouthed voted blue. You voted for this progressive shit. Take a bow. When your precious little heathens come home speaking gender bender nonsense, I hope the publicly-funded baby sitting was worth it. If you even care. Many of you will beam with pride when little Johnny wants to become a little Janie. Think of all the likes you will get on social media!!!

States should refuse Fed money for school lunches anyway. Is this something the federal govt has in its designated roles? NO. If local property taxes can build schools, pay teachers, buy books, etc then why do they need the feds to buy lunches?? I would think that would be a lot cheaper.

Can fix this real fast.

Immediate castration and emasculation to do this. It may ruin a few idiot lives but it will bring this perversion to a screeching halt quickly nationwide.

Now pervy little Johnny can be a laughing stock the rest of his short life. When the rest see this the behavior will change for the rest.

I predict this crazy will backfire on Biden and Company. If memory serves me correctly, there was a school district in Virginia ...

The choice is now home school or private school. Public schools are synonymous with LGBTQ grooming and sexual abuse. How in the world did we get here?

Please tell me THIS policy is finally the bridge too far to wake the sleeping giant known as the silent majority. If we can shine light on the policy, we might finally get ALL parents to join the opposition to Brandon and his Wokesters.

Not that I'm a big fan of republicans, I'm not! That said they fall more in line on the issues that I believe are best for this country or least they say so. Talk is cheap, we need action!!! If and only if they would only do something about said issues can we advance our cause which is to make this country a better place to live now and in the future. Hello! That's why I voted you into office Mr. and Mrs. Cockroach.

It's clear the republicans are mostly cowards and hypocrites if you ask me...what would the Democrats being saying if the situation were flipped. Namely, if republicans proposed said legislation. My guess is that you would think it was the end of the world. Granny getting pushed over the cliff times ten.

It's a big reason why this country is where it is...perfect opportunity for republicans to articulate where they are on this position yet they are ALL silent. Can't seize a perfect opportunity when it falls in their lap...don't even get me started on energy, inflation, wasteful spending, the border, gun control, health care, and a host of other issues...

I have been wondering if this was the impetus behind my kids' schools saying "No more free lunches this year." For whatever reason, during the last two (covid, duh) years, all three kids (two at elementary, 1 in high school) ate "free" unless they wanted extra helpings, which dumbass high school boys always do. I guess the rub for me is that the younger two always pack, so it's not like we used that "free" benefit for 2/3's of my kids.

The schools sent a letter saying "This program has been discontinued," and maybe it has. It might be just as likely that they're not wanting to touch that money because of the strings attached. I would wholeheartedly approve if so, because no, neither of these private (Catholic) schools would accept those specific strings. There is too much money involved for the parents to put up with one attention-seeking kid wanting to go to the opposing sex's bathroom.

And yes, I found it rather ironic that the private schools got "free" lunches from the federal government in the first place.

We're fucked. There will be no happy ending here; there is no going back to 'normal.'. There are only bad outcomes and worse outcomes. And we don't get to choose those, either.

It is like a horrible nightmare from which one never awakes.

Only worse for those of us who saw it coming.

We know that it will follow us into our sleep which explains why so many of us often cannot retire for evening. The mind wants constant vigilance to such a threat.

The only solution is to not give a damn.

A good friend of mine is a science/chemistry teacher in a well to do southern NH town. He was up in front of his class in early June writing something on the white board when he noticed a student standing next to him. He turned and saw a "Transgendered" student who asked if he could make an announcement to the class. He asked if it was class appropriate and of course the kid said yes. The kid proceeded to inform the class it was pride month and that because he is part of a protected class that has been persecuted throughout history he deserved reparations. And started providing his venmo account details to the class so they could pay him. My friend interrupted the speech and told him it was inappropriate to be soliciting money from others in the middle of his class. That he wouldn't allow the Boy Scouts to do this let alone this student. Well he go a call from the superintendent who questioned him on why he allowed the student to speak in the first place. Of course, his reply was that if he didn't let the kid speak, he would be in trouble for that. This transgender has been sexually harassing another male student in the class all year. My friend has asked him to knock it off several times and went to the administration to ask for help. they straight out told him that unless the victim complains, they wouldn't touch the issue with a 10 foot pole.

The pendulum will swing back wildly and it won't be pretty for these mental ill folks when it does.

I am thankful every day to be homeschooling, although as with everything, the NC gov seems to want to meddle. I saw that homeschool numbers went up sharply due to COVID, but have not come down as much as they thought. This article now says about 10% of students here are homeschooled, although that seems a bit high to me.
but I'm sure "they" are aware of all the kids slipping through their grip and will start working to eliminate that option.
Also for reference we had an extended family member who lived in Germany for a bit and homeschooling is strictly not allowed over there, which was a bit surprising.

Glad you brought up the drinking age federal coercion again. I was of the age that was affected at the time in that I attended college in one of that states that had a drinking age lower than 21. I remember well when the SCROTUS ruled 7-2 that this was a-ok (O'Connor's dissent in this case was possibly the best thing she ever wrote). A good friend of mine said "this is the beginning of a police state" and he was right.

The thing is Cons (the erstwhile "right") cheered this on at the time. It was a policy of the Reagan administration - one of many reasons I personally despise the man. And of course the Trump administration extended this to tobacco. And the Cons love this shit. Young people need to put in their place, don't you know.

Now the tables have turned and big daddy gov using the blackmail of federal funds to institute the worst policies of the shitlibs. I feel terrible for the kids, but cry me a river as far as their Cons parents are concerned. You could have stood up years ago and didn't. Good fucking luck.

This song pretty much sums it up:
