Feds Redefine Pizza as a
Washington, DC -- Whoa, jump off your ponies, pull up the
barn floor, shut up and pour yourselves another hot cup of Rocket Java, girl
friends. The federal government wants to redefine a pizza as a
vegetable. Uh-huh. A vegetable.
That reminds me of a satirical article in
The Onion a few years back in which a
vegetarian group redefined cows as plants so the vegans could gobble down
hamburgers and steaks. Chickens became legumes, fish became seaweed,
and so on.
So, what's the beef about today's Department of Education
and US Department of Agriculture wanting to redefine a pizza in our public
schools lunch program as a vegetable? How do the bureaucrats plan to
alter reality for the kids?
Simple. Add more marinara tomato sauce to the
public school pizzas, thus pretending a pizza is actually a tomato, and
redefine a pizza as a vegetable. That way, kids won't get fat.
As an aside, a tomato is not a vegetable; it is a fruit.
So, not only are the USDA and Dept of Education bureaucrats IGNORANT about
the biological category of a tomato, they are now trying to destroy basic
reality (metaphysics and epistemology) of the real world.
As Aristotle taught thousands of years ago, A equals A,
and A cannot also equal B at the same time. That's a given.
Otherwise, nobody could define reality and establish categories of thought
in order to survive in the real world.
Then, with no true categories of thought, nobody could
establish a "self," thus self identity, or self esteem. Nobody could
define what's good or bad for survival of the individual -- or humanity --
in the real world. Nobody could establish a moral right and wrong.
What's good for me, what's bad for me? What's good for my family,
what's good for homo sapiens on planet Earth and in the Universe?
Finally, with no moral philosophy as a guide, nobody
could then decide how to choose which social-political-economic system under
which to live since there would be no reality and no right or wrong.
Therefore, no Age of Enlightenment, no inherent
individual rights, no US Constitution, no Bill of Rights, no objective
judicial system, no rights and wrongs. No difference between a pizza
and a vegetable, or tomato. Just a big mess of Disconnected Government
Thought globs masquerading as "thinking."
Young children are especially susceptible to this type of
confusing "education." Half of them will rebel, thinking their
teachers are idiots -- which is not far from the truth. Their
conclusion is likely to be that the public education system is just a bunch
of stupid adults who don't even know the difference between a pizza and a
vegetable -- or a fruit. Some students will then ask, "So what the
hell is a hamburger and French Fries?" and receive no answer. At least
not a logical answer. God help any kid who wants a chocolate malt.
Maybe that's now a bulldozer or a Margarita. Who knows?
All of this lunch room absurdity is the inevitable result
of a collectivist, national education system that is now trying to "solve"
student obesity problems by redefining a pizza as a "vegetable." Not
even a fruit.
But that's the real objective of those in the government
bureaucracy, isn't it: create a Federal Education System to pump out a
bunch of non-thinking little authoritarians, children who can't think for
themselves, can only follow orders, and have to rely on the government for
answers -- illogical answers -- to all of their questions.
What are we doing to our children's minds? We are
giving them on-the-job training to become good little altruistic state
collectivists. Our kids are not attending public school to ask
intellectual questions. They're being forced to attend so they can get
their State Work Permits and participate in Social Networking. They're
being taught that their self-identities and individual rights to their own
minds and bodies come from government decrees, government gifts if you play
your cards right and suck up to the right power group.
The key word is Group. Just educate our children
enough to be able to go to the State voting booth and vote for the biggest
gang, the biggest group, the biggest majority mob that will provide all the
free cookies those currently in power say everybody is entitled to.
Entitled by dint of the fact that your gang out-voted all the other gangs.
There is no longer a concept of individual. Or
individual rights. Or private property rights. No rights to your
own mind and body. There is only the Group, the Gang, the Mob, the
Democratic Majority. There is only social networking.
Intellectual questions no longer exist. Questions
such as, "What is life?" are non-questions today. It's whatever the
feds say it is. What's the right moral thing to do? Whatever the
government says you can do. And it can change daily. Just like
President Obama's view of the US Constitution. It changes daily,
according to Democratic Majority Rule. What's a pizza? Ho-Ho-Ho,
it's now a vegetable, or a tomato. Why? Don't ask because there
is no longer objective reality.
Welcome to George Orwell's '1984
New Speak' where war is peace, lies are the truth, and... pizzas
are vegetables, tomatoes. Not even fruits.
Government brainwashing has now moved out of our
nationalized public classrooms and into the school cafeteria. A pizza
is now a vegetable and you're a monkey's uncle.
