Two stories today, first, let’s talk about the U.K and their legislation that is saying that the help for disadvantaged children with free school meals will not be offered during the half-term holiday due to budget cuts made for the COVID-19 situation. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said; “I totally understand the issue of holiday hunger,” he said. “The debate is, how do you deal with it.”
Then, let’s talk about Rachel Cohen, one of the Moms, live-streamed the event on Facebook and one of the anti-mask moms kicked out of a Volusia school board meeting. The group was initially allowed into the meeting as they all said they had medical exemptions from wearing a mask in Volusia County, Florida.

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening, depending on when you are tuning in, my name is Jonathan Torres Herrera and you are watching or listening to The JTH Show today. We are going to talk about Wil British children Go Hungry due to their government and lets talk about Moms I got dragged out literally from my school board. Meeting yeah, but first we’re on the actual
Okay. A as, as always, you, you listen to this episode in any other episode on Spotify, Apple podcasts, Google podcasts or radio public. And if you miss a yesterday’s episode, how dare you, you miss a very important note on there and that is that. Now we have a merger will be happy about it. Why? Because a it’s one of those things that YouTube gives creators once a day pass or a milestone. So yeah, right now there’s only a few things on there, but eventually when we get an actual designer, yeah. We’re going to have some, some really good designs out there. Hopefully you have all the stuff that I, the wonderful stuff that I said, in fact, last night I was talking to my wife and I was like, you know what, maybe they should be a sh a shirt or sweater with in, there was a whole bunch of the ideas that came along.
0 (1m 20s):
I mean, she find that funny, but let me get my wife. Okay, let’s get moving a, so today we have a two stories. Actually, they are not going to be by the way, as, as I don’t know, heart heavy as previous ones that I’ve covered in the last couple of days, but a actually kinda, kinda entertaining. I know some people are going to get triggered by them, but let’s jump into the first one. So the first one comes out of the bbc.com and that is to do with the UK legislation has come through saying that the scheme to help disadvantaged children with free meals will not be offered in during the half term holiday due to budget cuts made for the COVID 19 situation.
0 (2m 4s):
My rider here went on to inform you that 1.4 million children currently already qualify for these free school meals, right? As of January of 2020 Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said, I totally understand the issue of the holiday hunger. He said, The debate is how do you deal with it? But you are gonna, I’m gonna, I’m going to tell you right now. And I was like, I mean, it makes me, you know, sarcasm by the way sarcasm, but it made me feel like really? How, how do you deal with it? What you feed him? Yeah. You feed him a prime minister. Oh, we don’t have money. Oh, I wonder what kind of car is a, some of these board officials are, are, are driving and what kind of card do you drive with you?
0 (2m 46s):
I’m curious. And you know, all these other people that sometimes you commonly hear, right. Even here in the U S Get these big fat bonuses. So, you know, when they, when they are in education, but of course there is no money, right. Not to feed children. So its just of those stories that again, it makes you, you know, really scratch your head and you’re like, Hm, interesting. A couple of more points on the story is a school meals and primary schools cost and average of $2 and 35 pounds. So yeah, I don’t know the exact math on there, but probably less than $3 sale, U S dollars, right? In a secondary school. Ah, they call us in average of $2 and 40 cents for a two course meal, ah, this can vary, you know, depending on location and there is some good news and that is at cafes restaurants and businesses across England has a pledge to provide free food, to disadvantaged children during the upcoming holidays, the UK government extended free school meals to eligible children during the Easter holidays earlier this year and a petition created by the England striker, a group calling for provisions to continue.
0 (3m 55s):
The holidays had gained more than 900 signatures by this Monday, which is, you know, impressive. Right? So there’s definitely a lot of eyes on this rightfully. So the last point out here from my, from my writer here is a Scotland Wales and a Northern Ireland have already introduced food, a voucher programs, right? To, to help with what some of these cuts, you know, again kind of go to the same just a minute ago and it comes down too. How is the money been being budgeted? Right? We had the same problems here on the U S right. Were you have a, a very, unfortunately some, you know, experts, mismanaging budgets, and you hear stories all the time about, Oh, so-and-so is a QS and you know, and ridiculed and outcast it because we found out that, you know, they use money for other things that weren’t, shouldn’t be using.
0 (4m 42s):
And we are right now, you got to think about this, like in the United States, many schools, including including there in the new UK, you know, have had kids at home, you, you gotta figure, right. I mean, even a guy like me, I ordinary Joes like you and I have to figure that the kids are not in school for the, for the most of the year, right. There were none school, meaning that we’re creating less ways. They were creating less to do things, you know, for a lot of those, a janitor’s are usually going up and down, cleaning, you know, emptying trash. I mean, there’s a lot of things that are saved, you know, by not having, having to have these kids literally on premises On score, where did it, all that money go?
0 (5m 23s):
You know, how many, you know, how much stuff the school system, not all schools, they understand that every district works out really, but let’s just generalize here. They had to provide in pencils, paper, just, you know, utilities that kids used, that all these were not used with. Some of them sure. We were sent home. I’m sure. But again, I know cause I have kids that, you know, we ended up just opting versus buying stuff or just using stuff that we have in the house instead of going through, you know, any kind of sign up to get help many parents at of that as well. So it makes you think, you know, like, or wonder where’s our money going. And now you’re saying that there is no money that would normally would be there anyways, right. For these programs. So I’m sure this is going to develop further.
0 (6m 5s):
I’m sure this is going to, you know, they don’t, they don’t get a handle of it. Now I know that there’s, this is going to provoke another protest. Ryan I’ll do the ministration, which is nobody wants to deal with right now. So I found a curious, because I think this is something that we’re going to be doing here on the U S as well, and you know, just keep an eye out for that. And, and now keeping on the, on the subject of schools, let’s move on to our number two story. This one is in a, a, a, an interesting one. I’m smiling because I’m sorry. I know it’s funny. Okay. So let me give you the points for a My writer on time. Mask Moms, Moms not singular plural kicked out of militia school, board meeting.
0 (6m 47s):
So essentially what happened here is a, there is, there is a, a board meeting, right? To discuss the topic of masks right in school. Now I know that there’s a lot of parents cause I already come here. Some of them, because they already have hurt. Some of them, you know, express, Hey, this is, this is crazy. They were going to have Kids in orange is Mask all day long. So yes, that is, that is definitely something that needs to be, I think, develop further, ah, as an adult, I can tell you myself that while I don’t just go out there and not obey, you know, w w what we’re being asked to do to prevent the spread of COVID. I wear the Mask and I, and I complained about them.
0 (7m 27s):
You know, my family does too. We wear them again. Cause we’re, we’re a law abiding citizens, but when it comes to, you know, liking, no, you forget it, you know, you’re wearing it. Everything is sweaty. If you happened to burp, you know, I know, you know, you’re like, you know, so I get it, no matter how sporty yours looks, right. Or if you don’t have one of my My, I don’t have it here. Damn. One of those, one of those great, actually, actually, why is actually for sale and the bottom, one of those, a one of those is a great JTH Show masks. You know, it doesn’t feel good. Right? Nobody, you know, I’m sorry. I don’t, I don’t, I at least I have never I’ve I haven’t to this point, rather, excuse me, let me back up to this point.
0 (8m 9s):
I haven’t spoken with anybody as like, you know what, I really want to wear a mask. So I get it. And that these moms are upset that there are children. All right. Are you going to be wearing a mask allegedly throughout the whole time of day, right out of school. So I am totally with him and with them. I understand from that perspective, right, from us as a, as a, as a parent, the funny thing here that, that, that, that happened is so they attend, they attend to the group, right? Tanzi, the board of Meeting and there’s all these, they always CLIPP. In fact, let me, let’s go to that clip.
2 (8m 38s):
Okay. Are still holding up the school board meeting there, they came and speak, spoke to me. And they said that, you know, we don’t want to kill her 84 year old grandfather. And he was her father. He’s not in this room, but she’s concerned about him. She did come and tell me that it is okay. As long as we have medical exemptions, which I said that we do. And now she’s gone back to talk to these folks. And she told me that they would start the meeting since we have medical exemptions. But the meeting is not starting with our attorneys. With that, the attorney for the school board, for the school board, we have to be able to agree that the school board attorney is beneath the jurisdiction of the city attorney.
2 (9m 19s):
Right now, we don’t agree. We will proceed because we are counting. They are sitting, we actually hired County. He doesn’t have a Mask mandate.
3 (9m 27s):
We understand you want to speak at the meeting tonight. That’s perfectly fine. What were going to ask you to do is step outside when it’s your turn to speak, come on in and go to the diocese or the Welcome to speak at that point in time. When we ask you to lie to you, if you wanna sit in here, listen to the board meeting, you’re more than welcome to, to do that, but you are required to wear a mask
2 (9m 43s):
That we’re not going to wear masks.
3 (9m 45s):
And one last thing. So I’m going to ask the plate weekend. If you don’t mind, please exiting. If you’re not wearing a mask and more than welcome to come in and speak when it’s your turn to speak. And then we’re going to ask you to leave again. And if you refuse to do that, I’m forced to then impose trespass on all of you do that.
2 (10m 1s):
Are you really willing or are you really willing to put five Moms in jail? What’s that? You said this is all control. Oh, right. Okay. They’ve given us Mask to where that are basically like pantyhose and it’s it’s it, it would be funny if it was not reality, but this is reality. And they’re handing out pantyhose and telling us to put on our masks so we can keep someone’s 84 year old grandfather safe, which is what she said to me. And he’s of course not in this room, but we should keep him safe. It’s absolute, absolute tyranny.
0 (10m 34s):
So the group, I have to give you a bit more context that I was as far as well, the group was initially allowed to go into the meeting without masks, as they had all claimed to have a medical exemptions from wearing masks, no one was arrested, but the seven people were, were charged or not. I want to say torches a is a rough term there, but essentially a that we’re told that they weren’t, they were true. They trespass in the meeting because they were told, you know, it’s, it’s all there in the video. Hey, you, if you don’t get your mask on or off to go out tide, what your trying to come back in. And instead of all of you guys being here, sitting, you know, together with our masks
3 (11m 12s):
Speak, come on in, go on to the diocese where the Welcome to speak at that point in time. When we ask you to leave you, if you wanna sit in here with this as a board meeting, or more than welcome you to do that, but you are required to wear a mask.
0 (11m 24s):
We’re gonna, we’re going to basically say that you’re trespassing, right. Which, which they did at the end, they had to literally drag it out of Moms.
2 (11m 31s):
I’m going out there. This is outrageous.
0 (11m 45s):
Right? And it’s, it’s amusing. It’s a little funny because this happened in Florida and I know a lot of people roll their eyes on like, Oh, well, there you go. And that is because of the governor they’re has declared, you know, as he heard also from the lady there, you know that as you know, that the state, you know, where the district is an abrupt to stay at home,
2 (12m 6s):
I have to be able to agree that the school board attorney is beneath the jurisdiction of the city attorney. Right. You know, we don’t agree that we still proceed because we are counting. They are here.
0 (12m 15s):
It’s also true. Right. So she brought up, we a lot of great points. What I find it sometimes amusing is that these, these individuals, right. There are so dense sometimes in the head of that. It’s like, okay, listen, we get it. You’re upset. You don’t like the damn Mask. I don’t think anybody does, but don’t make a scene for that matter. You are in a school board meeting, probably very, very likely. Some of these mothers brought their children blasting that I ever want to do is make a fool out of myself, in front of my kids. You know, because as I said before, you know, I mean, what do you teach your kids? Right? Like, Oh, look at how a mommy is being Dragged out of the damn school. How sad is that?
0 (12m 56s):
Right? You can disagree with it. You know, by all means, you know, the mother that I was dragged out, by the way, Rachel, Cohen, you know, livestream the whole thing, which is where you got those of those clips from, you know, she was, there are saying, you know, the district is taking a way, parents rights. What are you talking about? She told an you, the news journal, adding to her group does not accept the premise that the district has control over our children. When it comes to a medical issues, you know, it had enough, very dramatic, very like, you know, you’re killing our kid, going, having a Dyke. That’s not what’s happening here. Yes. We can agree that the whole situation is very uncomfortable.
0 (13m 38s):
That is very unfortunate. And that we all hope this will be over soon, but that, I think that that’s a stretch. You are not to say that you no are, the school is taking control of our children. Ellison. A if in the meantime, you’ll know you’ll do you feel that strongly about this? That there is always distance learning in for that matter a homeschool, you know, that you can do, you can practice will not disturb the rest of your work life balance kind of thing. Schedule. Yeah, sure. It does. It has done a, to all of us. Right. But there has to be some, some level of compromise, right? If anything, right. At the end of the day, do we have to agree that we like what’s happening? Of course not. Do we have to agree that the vote by the way is a yes.
0 (14m 22s):
That a pass as a yes. But at the end of the day you made a fool yourself, you made a scandal, you went live, you know, you got yourself On on in front of a, of a news, a publisher. And you know, you, you made all these headlines. And at the end of the day, the, the whole thing still pass, right? The, they still pass and now you have to wear the mask. Like, there’s no toys here, and now it’s a longer debatable, like you were saying, right. It doesn’t matter what your governor is saying that, you know, and unfortunately, so you know, it it’s really unfortunate. Do you know that this has come to that, you know, to that point, you know, we’re now we have individual’s, you know, not only protesting in, in, against these masks, by showing up in groups of, of like seven in this case, and then gain dragged out at a building’s, you know, but it is more unfortunate that we’re not working together, you know, to get to get through this.
0 (15m 21s):
Right. Because again, I can’t say it enough. No, one’s asking her to like the situation. No, one’s asking your to be, you know, all, all rainbows and butterflies over COVID in mass wearing that stuff. It sucks. It really, really does. But until this is over, we kinda had to have to deal with it. Right. And then if you don’t like it, if you don’t like attending restaurants or attending, whatever it is with the Mask, then you either got, you got the work around it because we were all in this write. If you don’t like an example, one to a supermarket with a mask, you’re like, well, what else could I do? If you can have your food delivered, there’s always going to be a button, right. For any of you guys watching this right now, so that, you know, all through to this point, of course, there’s always going to be someone that says, but JTH this, but JT that you don’t understand their financial situation, man.
0 (16m 10s):
If I sat here and tried to make a solution for every single, but in the fricking world, I would, none of us would ever sleep or do anything else for probably the rest of our lives. Cause there’s always a butt. Right. Ah, okay, well, don’t, don’t send your kids at school, but I can’t afford it. Okay. Well, a, I figured out a way that she had, there are a kid can go on a homeschool with someone else and someone who has a house, I don’t know anyone, you know, we’re all in this together. I can’t say it enough. And I guess that’s a swell and you know, we are all in this together. We gotta, we gotta, we gotta pull through together. What was her name again? Rachel Cohen come on.
0 (16m 50s):
You know, you want to be that you don’t want to be that parent, you know, that is known as being dragged out a building’s come on. Rachel
4 (16m 56s):
Do you know to lay him up? My producer are there is still light. I saw her. I gave him and that’s
0 (17m 4s):
It is too late. But come on. Rachel all right. Let’s let’s get this together. That’s it for today guys. Thanks for watching the show and I hope you are.
