From the Wall Street Journal:

At Chapman School in Nebraska, resourceful students hawk pizza and cookie dough to raise money for school supplies, field trips and an eighth-grade excursion to Washington. They peddle chocolate bars to help fund the yearbook.

But the sales won’t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.

Because, you know, the federal government should be in the business of regulating local school bake sales. Why should something like that be left up to the peons of the town itself? THX-1138 is now realized thanks to liberals and “progressives” and the lefties. It goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that George Orwell scoped it all out correctly, except for whom would be carrying the agenda out.

In the 1970’s, the left chanted, “Question Authority.” Now, they demonize anyone who does.
