Texas high school Booster clubs are the next targets of big brother. Their crime? Not selling enough healthy food at concession stands, subjecting them to stiff fines from the state.
And when school districts threaten to cut band or women’s golf programs because they can no longer rely on booster club revenue to adequately fund them, who will they turn to? The taxpayer, of course!
Will we all lose a few pounds by turning Friday Night Lights into Friday Night Diets? Who knows. One thing is for sure: big government makes all of our wallets a lot lighter.
