Didja know: the IRS costs $150,000 per employee every year.
Here’s some of what you’re paying for:
Adapting to the lifestyles of many San Franciscans, school officials launched a breakfast in the classroom program this year aiming to give students a healthy start to their day.
What “lifestyle” is that? The “lifestyle” that prohibits that most basic of animal responsibilities, feeding your own offspring?
The program has also removed the social drama of the cafeteria from the program by feeding students in their classrooms.
“Eating breakfast in the cafeteria can be very socially isolating,”
So to avoid “social drama,” they move the eating into the classroom and give everyone some.
So even if you, as a parent, make sure they washed behind their ears, made their bed, and ate the breakfast [bacon? eggs? oatmeal? pork chops and gravy? ham and red-eye?] you cooked for them, they get moar breakfast in the classroom. No worries, tho — it’s just an apple, a pear/orange, some of that packaged, disgustingly sugary yoghurt-like stuff and some packaged, high-calorie granola… or a processed bagel, processed cream cheese and “organik” processed packaged turkey. I’d like a follow-up check of the trash can to see how many wrinkly, bruised apples are in there.
“It’s also difficult for families to get out the door and arrive out [sic] school 30 minutes before the bell rings.”
Is that also ”the lifestyles of many San Franciscans”? The inability to show up 30 minutes early for Free Food?
Even if all the “food” is processed, packaged …. stuff.
Add in the now-traditional skool lunches, wherein parents are not allowed to send their own lunches with their own offspring , and add in the new trend to skool dinners, what have we wrought?
What caught my eye on this story — and now has E-Disappeared down the Memeory Hole — was the feature highlighting the “Golden Ticket”, good for a free movie and some other items, given as a Prize to the 1 millionth recipient of a Free Breakfast in the San Francisco skool district.
The “winner” was a hi-skool age guurl of an urban demographic who looked like she’d never missed a meal in her life. She looked happy and …puzzled.

The U.S. Air Force is paying Mike Domitrz $2,222 an hour to teach airmen when it’s OK to kiss on a date. …roughly $325,000 per year from military contracts at 50 installations.
…three sessions titled “May I Kiss You?” to airmen… Marines….
The Air Force said, “There are no other known contractors able to provide this caliber of a presentation impacting our target audience in such a positive way,”
According to a Defense Department-approved “sexism course,” the Bible, the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence all contribute to modern sexism.
