Jamie Oliver Victory Over L.A. School District Food Bureaucrats


A couple weeks ago we brought up Jamie Oliver's beef with the L.A. School system: namely they've been serving up (government sanctioned) garbage to the students and they were working hard to prevent him from practicing his activist reporting about it. Tuesday things took a turn for, what certainly appears to be, the better.

Jamie had made a big deal out of the extremely unhealthy flavored milk L.A. Unified serves and, on the Jimmy Kimmel show (above), School Superintendent John Deasy announced they had decided-- on their own (in-fact-they-were-planning-on-doing-it-before-they-ever-heard-of-the-damn-hippie), he emphasized-- to petition the Board of Ed to stop serving it. The two even seem to be grooving on each other, wouldn't you say?
Elimination of the flavored milks in the schools has been a grinding point for Oliver as he took time to present a very graphic illustration on how much sugar is consumed within the school district’s lunch program. In one of his previous shows, Oliver actually filled an entire buss full of sugar to share how much sugar kids consume.

Last night’s announcement has had sweeping results in Los Angeles. Fans of Oliver have applauded the decision as parents are looking to see what else might be done to actually improve the quality of lunch served to the children.

We need Jamie to focus his efforts on the DFA next because I suspect we'll be seeing even more of this, apparently under either a mainstream conservative like Obama or under any reactionary Republican.
Amidst all the destructive activities taking place in our world today that deserve attention, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided instead to make it a personal mission to destroy the businesses and livelihoods of those trying to help people through natural medicine.

On Thursday, April 14, 2011, dozens of agents from the FDA, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted an unprovoked, full-scale raid on Hood River, Ore.-based Maxam Nutraceutics, a company that produces and sells nutritional supplements primarily for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and Alzheimer's disease.

The thugs stole hundreds of thousands of dollars in products, machinery, office supplies, files... whatever they could get their paws on.
