LoonieLand: School to Put Video Cameras in Trash Cans to Monitor Tossed Veggies

Written by Gary North on October 8, 2012

Obama’s Adiministration requires school districts to serve veggies and fruit in school lunches.

Kids do what we would expect: they refuse to eat their veggies. So, they toss them into the trash.

A local school wants to have proof that this is happening. It does not want to supply hated food. It needs proof, supervisors believe. So, it will spend $75,000 to put video cameras in the trash cans. The cameras will record the veggies.

But who will edit these videos? Who will assemble the data? This will no doubt require a veggie garbage specialist.

Some parents see this as the first step in a crusade against parents who have kids who toss their veggies.

“Because no matter what they say, they are going to try to identify the kids throwing the food away and then social workers and courts will get involved,” wrote one local resident. “If your child doesn’t eat his school lunch, you will face punishment. Think I’m wrong? There are cities and states that punish the adults if the children are truant or get in trouble with the law in any manner. Your kid threw away a carrot? Go to jail. This is what we are coming to.”

These parents are paranoid. This is a good sign. If I were this paranoid, I would pull my kids out of school.

Wait. I forgot. I never sent my kids into the public schools.

And do it goes. The nanny state is like the Blob. It keeps spreading.

  2. Looks like the seller of the cameras has found a new way to force a profit. Is there no end to the nonsense going on in public systems? No matter what you do or how many times you document it, you can't change human nature. Even an attempt to control it would prove impossible because some civil rights group would call it a hate crime because it discriminates against those who do not like carrots! Good grief, folks. Will someone please stop the ridiculous madness and stop enriching these fools who have managed to get on the good side of someone with the power to give them the business. Why do you think voters keep voting against increases for school districts. Show us where the school (not the Administration) actually benefited from more tax money.

  3. You tag-team trolls from the Romney campaign just crack me up.

  4. In order to get the biggest bang for the buck, they cut the broccoli stocks right to the bottom which makes for stringy stems (I hate), beats I detest and esparagas (sp)as well. So shame on me (I'm over 60). I love most but not all vegetables. Don't we have bigger problems to solve? So let them pick and choose to reduce waste.

  5. More STUPIDITY from the Kenyan Critters Regime. And if a kid doesn't eat his veggies, what do the Morons plan to do about it?? I mean those Clowns can't even run a FREE Cell Phone give-a way program right. Hey Stupid you don't need a camera, just take the lid off the trash can a look in.

  6. Well, you liberal nuts do bring them out now, dont you! Guess they just can not stand the stupidity. If the parents had been taught in school the basics of life, instead of feel good programs, their children might not be like they are today. But hey, thats what a progressive is all about isnt it? Seems they will have to deal with it now. Romney has nothing to do with this.

  7. Are you saying that you agree with that school spending that much money on checking what goes into a trash can?

  8. Ah, commonsense is like a breath of fresh air! Thank you.

  9. The cameras at the trashcan are for intimidation, their reasoning being if the students know about it, they wont throw it away. Good luck on that one! Meanwhile another school system goes broke. Wonder why?

  10. That would be a Republican way. The camera is the Democrat way because they like to spend money.

  12. Maybe if schools didn't have to provide free and/or inexpensive food, if parents packed their own kids' lunches, this stupidity wouldn't be necessary. As a teacher, parent and taxpayer, I HATE seeing twelve or more trash cans full of FOOD, not just styrofoam dishes & plastic forks, after each meal is over & done with. (This is in an elementary school with 300 students.) Maybe if government would get its stinking nose out of our business, we'd regain the common sense we've lost and learn to live our own RESPONSIBLE lives again…

  13. Pain in the keister to read, not going to finish. You need paragraph breaks, honey, and one topic.

  14. You hate it, don't you Stan, that we've got you Romn-obamists pegged?

    Sad how they can't see how similar they are, the Rombots and Obamabots.

  16. Texas Chris says:


  17. Texas Chris says:

    The issue is not the veggies, or the preparation thereof, but the fact that all of the community pays for public schools, kids get little education, parents have no say, and ISD tyrants run amok.

    Get government out of school if you want real education.

  18. Texas Chris says:

    The Republican AND Democrat way are both tax-funded, and that is the crux of the education dilemma. We know government healthcare is a bad idea, but we trust government schools? Why?

  19. Texas Chris says:

    Part of it is silly wasteful spending like this; part of it is extracurricular spending like sports and clubs. But it all comes down to the fact that public schools are tax funded and union organized, and therefore inefficient.

  20. Texas Chris says:

    When I was in high school (89-93) we left at lunch and went to local restaurants. Shocking, I know, that prisoners were allowed to leave the penitentiary.

    A private school where I live now recruits several fast-food chains to bring in meals to sell to students every day.

  21. Protest these lying, fascist scums from robbing every last shred of our freedom. Nothing they say related to truth. Don’t let them force GMO Monsanto foods down your throat.

  22. And……..if the students know about the cameras in the trash cans, they will just steal the cameras.

  23. When I was in high school (53-57) we were not allowed to leave the school. The principal would sit in his car at the only gate where the driveway met the street. Prisoners? We thought so at the time, but at our 50th reunion 5 years ago, we all had a lot of laughs telling stories about this kind of stuff. Did any of us suffer from what was done back then? No.
