Although some school food is bad. You have made it too broad an argument. Not all school food is bad, not all schools have bad food. For example you never stated public schools. Some private schools do not offer lunch therefore they do not have bad food. Also some schools do not serve any unhealthy lunches. Also you did not exactly specify what you mean by bad , as in taste or as in nutritious. Some school food is healthy and some does taste good. You have left your argument to broad. I know many schools in my area that actually do have a healthy menu , I also know there are schools where the food tastes very good. Although I am sure there are SOME schools that offer a "Bad" selection of food. You can not prove that all school food is bad. Also your argument you posted makes no sense.

You don't have me on your side or have any victory. you posted a vague list, didn't elaborate on what you meant. Now you repeat what I say and say you have a victory. You haven't proved any points and really haven't actually stated a clear argument. So since I have nothing to debate I will stand by my argument that Jziggy is wrong that all school food is bad.

Yes, you just agreed with me! You really need to read your argument more closely. I'll break it up into small bits.

DO not change my wording around, You are not debating you are acting immaturely. When you actually have a coherent argument let me know. Your argument isn't clearly stated . I have asked you numerous times to state it and you just keep sprouting nonsense. You changed everything I said and quoted me on your misinformation. I did not say things and you leaving out words does not make it that I did. NOT ALL SCHOOL FOOD IS BAD, Not all schools have unhealthy food or bad food. Your argument is too broad and you will not clearly state it no matter how many times I ask you too. When you want to have a real debate maybe I can respond until then I have no idea what your argument is. Don't change my words around again and claim that they are still my words. That isn't debating , it is lying.

Well I guess I have nothing else to say as Jziggy is not responding. I will just state that I think the wrong way to debate is to quote someone and put in your own words and /or change the person's words to fit your agenda.

Apparently my opponent has given up. I will once again state that not all school food is bad. I wasn't given any arguments by my opponent except for her changing my words around and falsely quoting me by adding in the words of her choice to make it look as though I agree.

Maybe not all school food is bad because, in my school which is catholic, has something called bag o naturals and it may not be popular at my school but it sure is healthy

I liked kels1123's argument as well. It's too bad Jziggy didn't put up more of a fight.

Kels, I really like your argument. I didn't know any other way to get your attention on here, but we have alot in common and I would like to maybe chat on whatever kind of issues sometime. If you feel the same don't hesitate to comment.

Not all school food is bad-just poorly funded school food. This may sound like little thought is put into it, but it is reality: Sodexho=bad.

kels1123 , you do not need to worry about your opponent. He or she is just making stuff up.
