Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

I just got slapped upside the head by the truth nobody seems to want to talk about.

The Federal Government bribes schools to serve food students refuse to eat, and then the schools read the fine print on the bribe, and realize that the poor local tax payer is going to be left paying the bill for all that food the kids don’t actually eat.  No wonder no one wants to talk about it.

Please read this one:

School District Quits Michelle Obama Lunch Program


Are we smart enough up here in the North Country to read the fine print before we wedge ourselves between a rock and a hard place?  I don’t know.  We just got our school tax bill.  I wonder how much of our fat check we will be sending to support our school is going to cover the cost of food Michelle calls righteous and the kids call yuck.  For now, we can afford it, but not forever.

If you are going to take a bribe, at least collect the money.  Or, should I say, If you are going to consider taking a bribe, maybe you should consider with whom you are dealing.

We are talking about tossing our taxes on the compost pile…
