Lou Dobbs: "Kids, do NOT eat your vegetables"

The Dobbs took issue with "student vegetable indoctrination" on his Monday show. It seems that a Baltimore city school district,in an effort to cut costs and get children to eat healthier food, has adopted "Meatless Monday" in it's schools. Dobbs, as well as the meat industry, complain that it's an "unhealthy dose of indoctrination to students". This despite overwhelming support from district parents. Here's the video:

Jeez, you'd think they were forcing them to eat vegetarian every day of the week. I guess Lou Dobbs thinks if you don't eat meat it's Unamerican.

And it's misleading the way they're implying kids won't get protein unless they eat meat. There are plenty of vegetarian protein sources.

This is why I can't stand watching any of these "news" programs anymore. My mother watches Lou Dobbs and I am constantly having to remind her he is biased and she has to take what he says with a large grain of salt.

Hmmm, so what if you bring in a sack lunch? Are the lunch police going to throw away your bologna sandwich your Mom packed for you on 'meatless Monday's'?

Persoanlly, I would rather the focus be on education and decent salaries for teachers! Kids aren't getting fat on school lunches!!! They are getting fat at fast food restaurants!!!

They can' even decide what is 'healthy' for the students! It sunded more to me like they need a 'double meat Monday' instead!

Geeze - give me a friggin break!!!
