www.happinessonline.org where I offer help to
people who want to understand a common sense moral
other words, I have as one of my goals the
improvement of morality in our society. At this site
I offer two free copies of a common sense moral code.
I've had more than 1000 people request the books in
the past month. I carry on "moral counseling" with
many people. An increasing number of people are
recognizing that our country has been going through a
long period of "moral drift."
of my recommended moral codes is to eat a good diet.
well accepted that candy is NOT part of a good diet.
grandson is learning to be immoral because he is
eager to sell your candy, and he would like to think
that this is a good thing to do.
difficult to teach morals to a child when some
group, in all apparent innocence encourages a child
to think that selling candy is a moral and right
thing to do.
will be giving my daughter, the mother, a check for
$50 as a donation to YOUR cause -- it will come along
in due course, signed by my "real name," not my
professional name, of "Loren C. Troescher." I will
not accept any candy, nor will I allow my grandson to
pay for a box of candy so he can eat it or give it

I would like to lodge my very strong protest that you
contribute to the moral decay, even if in a very
small way, by getting kids to be candy pushers. You
are also contributing to poor diet and poor health.
These are all serious issues.

eliminate these fund-raisers.
understand you have tried other items to sell --
wrapping paper -- but that people wouldn't buy. Of
course candy is more attractive. Crack Cocain would
be also. Just because people are willing to buy and
eat candy does NOT make it a moral activity, or a
healthy thing to do.
Another thing, I'm sure you realize, is that this
type of fund raiser is nothing more than a very
profitable deal for the candy company. It costs them
virtually none of their profit when the kids sell.
who buy? They may not like to buy candy, but they
want to help kids.
is enough immorality and deceit to go around for all.
suspect that you will not respond, and that you will
not change this policy.
if enough of your parents and kids had the moral
awareness that eating candy is a moral error, as well
as a nutritional error, our schools and society would
be a better place.
certainly agree that there are many more serious
moral problems in Palmdale or anywhere, but I take
them on one at a time, where I find them.
would strongly oppose making candy illegal, or
banning it from stores, etc., Morals must be freely
chosen, not forced on one. But, when Sean is
encouraged to think that selling and eating candy is
GOOD, then what other damage is done to his moral
code?? I print and give a copy of this to Sean --
some day, perhaps, he will share his grandfather's
hope this will have some impact on you, at least.
