RUSH: The Boston Herald: “Bake sales, the calorie-laden standby cash-strapped classrooms, PTAs and booster clubs rely on, will be outlawed from public schools as of Aug. 1 as part of new no-nonsense nutrition standards, forcing fundraisers back to the blackboard to cook up alternative ways to raise money for kids.” Bake sales are leading to obesity. They may be raising money for good causes, but we are not going to permit them anymore. They are too “calorie-laden.” Honest. I’m not making it up, folks.
RUSH: Honestly, bake sales in Massachusetts are being banned because they’re calorie-laden and unhealthy. But this is something I warned you about back in 2008, November 10th, right after the election.Let’s go back to our sound bite archive. Listen to me on this program, November 10th, 2008.
RUSH ARCHIVE: “Rush, why are you laughing about all of this? They’re canceling bake sales with baked goods in it? These are traditions. Why are you laughing?” What else can you do here, folks? We’ve been sounding the warnings on this kind of encroachment by these wackos on the left for all these years. If people want to go out and vote for people who are then going to appoint people in the education system or wherever that are going to enact these kind of things, then fine. If this is what people want in California — if this is what they vote for and if this is who they vote for — then all you can do is laugh at it, and anywhere else as well.
If this is what people want, let ’em have at it. At some point this is all going to come back and bite everybody in the rear end. They’re not going to know what happened. And the only question is going to be: Is it going to be too late to really roll any of this stuff back and change it? Will the left have so much entrenched power — unelected entrenched power — for generation after generation, will there be any chance to roll it back? At some point red lights are going to go off. The brains are going to start functioning normally again, and people are going to realize where all this is headed.
RUSH: This was me speaking about a bake sale that was banned in California. Somebody was outraged about it, and I said, “Well, why are you surprised? This is what people voted for out there, and it’s only gonna get more frequent. It’s only gonna become more common.” I’m right again!
