If the government lies to us about the size of the deficit, what else do you suppose they lie to us about?
Hi Jack, The question really should be what has the government told the truth about? The only thing Bush has told the truth about is he will veto any bill sent to him that actually benefits the majority of American citizens. And Congress, well, I can't think of one thing they have told the truth about. -Sandy, Thousand Oaks, California
If the government lies to us about the budget, I would assume the government also lied when it said Clinton balanced the budget. -Steve, Julian, California
When has the federal government ever told us the truth? Each and every administration and each and every member of Congress will spin the truth in whatever direction makes them look like they are in the right and are working for the constituency, which we all know they are not. I constantly wonder why we haven't abolished the government and started over with something else that will actually work. -Jim, Oak Creek, Wisconsin
Where have you been? They lie about everything. -Gretchen, Denver, ColoradoIs it the job of public schools to tell parents their children are fat?
No, it is not the job of a school to inform a parent that their child is overweight. That should be pretty obvious to any parent. If the parents don't care about the welfare of their child, no amount of prodding from the school system will help. -Richard, Sussex, New Jersey
Jack, Schools have phased out physical activities like recess and gym and phased in fast food type menus in the cafeteria. Schools are just as guilty of making kids fat as parents. Schools should not be allowed to address this issue. -Rob, Kentucky
Many parents of school children are clueless. Of course schools should tell parents if their kids are fat of if they are bullies or if they are dumb as posts, etc. Unfortunately, many parents are too busy working trying to support their families to know what is going on with their kids.-Greg, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
Children will let other children know that they are fat by teasing them. The school does not need to enforce this. -Jeffrey, Atlanta, Georgia
