Skip to comments.Michelle Obama to Impose Socialist Salad Bars on Schools
Posted on 12/20/2010 4:28:29 PM PST by lbryce
f First Lady Michelle Obama has her way, every public school cafeteria across this great nation will have a salad bar full of lettuce, carrots, and communism. The First Lady's Let's Move Salad Bars To Schools program aims to put 6,000 kid-sized salad bars in schools. Each salad bar costs $2,500, and the whole program costs $15 million. So on top of promoting a vegetable-y socialist agenda, they're also expensive! (Schools are being encouraged to raise part of the money themselves.) Big government run amock! The goal of course is to hoodwink children into eating their vegetables. >>>
The goal of course is to hoodwink children into eating their vegetables. According to Obama, "When [vegetables] are set up all pretty and nice like this you might want to try some and maybe try some things you've never had before, right?" Look out, public schools: Kids are going to demand their pizza and french fries. And then will come inevitable friots. You'd think child obesity was like a problem or something.

our kids are fat, and it’s pretty damn repulsive how big Americans have gotten.
This country cannot get rid of these socialists fast enough. The fools that voted for them should be fined, as a matter of American principle.
In my high school we had a salad bar, an italian bar, and the regular lunch line.
So, they want kids to eat their veggies but they wont let them grow them in their back yard.
Can we just impeach him and get this over with.
Yeah, but it’s cool for Michelle to fly her big fat ass to Chicago on AF1 for some pizza.
Dumb shitz actually think they can make a bunch of unsupervised kids eat their broccoli? Gimme a break.
So hamding them plates of vegetables to throw out will make them slimmer? I don't think so.
Or, maybe she should eat her lobster without butter!!!
Produce contracts awarded to FDA deemed safe farms only.
Was the salad bar in your school loaded with mayonnaise-based foods like tuna salad and potato salad, goldfish crackers, sunflower seeds and other high-calorie crunchy toppings, high-fat salad dressings, etc. like most salad bars are? A few tablespoons of regular salad dressing alone will do some serious calorie damage, i.e., “I’ll have some lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, and raw mushrooms topped with 1,000 calories worth of croutons and dressing.”
That's exactly what they think. It takes my breath away sometimes.
just think of the logistics of buying, moving, cleaning, preparing, and keeping refrigerated all of that fresh food.
I can see more kitchen help needed and refrigeration upgrades in a lot of already broke schools
Hard times are coming! Only those who stock up now have a chance of surviving.
Mrs. Obama has the right idea that it’s better for kids not to be obese. Mr Obama had the right idea that it would be desirable if health care could be more affordable for more people. But in both cases, the big government solution will not work. Remember the War on Poverty? Poverty won and look for fatness to prevail in the War on Obesity.
“I can see more kitchen help needed and refrigeration upgrades in a lot of already broke schools.”
And guess the immigration status of those newly-needed employees...
Really, that is the only -- death dealing -- problem I see with the "idea."
Two of my five brothers are strict meat and potatoes guys. There's not much they do like. When they come visit we don't bother planning meals or buying extra groceries.
If they were still kids, they'd never go anywhere near that salad bar. They'd rather starve -- and they would, too -- before they'd touch a bit of lettuce or a chopped tomato.
Along with the chaos of these salad bars will be the food born diseases. Of course, the farmers who supply the produce will be under intense government scrutiny and blamed for some kid who brought something like hepatitis from home. It will require each school to provide salad bar monitors during the lunch periods. And the extra work required for cleanup will be costly The extra staffing will cost already money stretched school districts dearly.
High school students might manage a salad bar neatly. However, elementary kids would turn it into disaster.
