Trash Cams May Monitor Discarded Federally Imposed Vegetables

Moonbat menus likely to earn the approval of Michelle “Wide Load” Obama have forced kids to rely on junk food for sustenance. But maybe with 1984-style surveillance techniques, kids could be coerced into actually eating the rainwater and leaves:

Lake County [Florida] School Board officials are considering attaching cameras to school cafeteria trash cans to study what students are tossing after officials found that most of the vegetables on the school menu end up in the trash can.

New federal laws require students to take a healthy produce at lunchtime, but last year in Lake County, students tossed $75,000 worth of produce in the garbage.

There you have it: coercive do-gooder liberalism in a nutshell.

As for the cost of the cameras — how else would government solve waste but with more waste?

Wait until Big Government finishes nationalizing the healthcare industry. Bureaucrats will soon take upon themselves the responsibility for monitoring what everyone eats, because after all everyone’s health is everyone’s business in a collectivist utopia.

On tips from Stormfax, J, and wingmann.

    Cost of the cameras?

    How about the cost of the union goons to monitor the camera feeds?

    If the Government is paying for your Healthcare, it would follow that cameras should be installed in your home and in your car to monitor any “unhealthful” or “dangerous” activity that could send you to a hospital.

    You think I’m kidding?

    The 8 Presidential lesbian councils for Wymyn demand that penis holders register their “weapons” in preparation to confiscation.
    The justice department falls into lockstep and orders the DOD to enforce misandrist laws.
    Boys are drugged and presumed guilty.
    Wait, all of that has already happened.

    How about we send the Authorities Our Stool, and they can TELL What we Ate..Fair Enuff!

    Next phase, a robotic arm will be installed in the garbage can that will reach out and grab any student throwing away state-imposed vegetables and subsequently force feed said vegetables down student’s throat. Bon apetit!

    Mash up the crap food and throw it at the cameras.

    Liberalism: Ideas so good they have to be mandatory.

    Back in my day, we would have taken these moronic liberal nerds and stuffed them head first into trash cans
    The kids could be mistaking those worm holes in the cauliflower for MO’s pie hole

    This is so ridiculous on so many levels! I read the whole article and the guy who is proposing the cameras claims they won’t capture student’s faces, just what they are throwing away. Sure. They already KNOW what is being thrown away, they want to catch the kids that are doing it. For? Re-education? Intimidation? Something has to force these commoners to obey!!

    In England, the security cameras installed strictly to monitor crime and safety have long been used to keep track of people taking out their trash. Are they violating rules about what day of the week they’re allowed to use their trash bins? What’s in their trash? Are they recycling correctly? There are even rules about food waste — don’t they have garbage disposals in English kitchens?

    I’ve been reading horrifying stories of totalitarian rule over trash issues in the UK for years, certain that it will be coming to America. It’s already starting here, with fines for people who don’t recycle correctly. Not that they don’t try, but that they don’t do it right. I keep thinking about my aging mother, who has a bit of trouble remembering details and dates. She will not be able to follow the rules exactly, and she is too proud to ask a neighbor for help. She will be fined or punished in additional ways all for the glories of recycling, my most-hated issue in daily life today.

    If they already know they are throwing away 75,000 dollars a year in veggies , either the cameras are redundant , or they made up the number . Smells like more “job creation” .

    Here in the People’s Republic of the Perpetually Offended the a-holes keep changing the rules for recycling/trash pick up. They wouldn’t pick up my yard waste one time because I had it bagged in plastic instead of paper. They originally demanded it be in plastic then changed to paper. I took the stuff down to the local city park and dumpted it next to the trash cans. It’s become quite common here to see trash dumped by the side of the road in poor areas. The city WILL pick up the trash one way or the other.

    @Judith M: No, a robotic arm can’t vote or pay union dues.
