(UNEDITED)This is a response to Chris Crowder's Soda Pop Machine complaint of Oct 7th. He implies that "right has become wrong" and "they" are taking Layton Christian Academy's soda pop machine away while simultaneously legalizing marijuana. He states that this is a plot by "some national organizations" and "no doubt, the current administration". Also, of course, "it's the end of the world". I hope this is facetious but I really can't tell from the piece. I rather suspect it isn't.
The State of California has marijuana legalization on it's ballot. Eric Holder, the attorney general, has stated the Justice Department will fight that if it passes. It is entirely possible that Michelle Obama's healthy kids program is pushing to get soda machines out of schools. Frankly, I don't care enough to research it. Assuming so, the administration's approach is completely coherent. Soda pop in schools is bad for you, marijuana is bad for you. Maybe Chris can park his car up the road and bootleg soda out of the trunk. That will show "them" that he's a rebel maverick kind of guy who doesn't let "them" push him around.
