Michelle Obama Unfazed by Student Lunch Boycott
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 29 Sep 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 10/02/2012 10:49:29 AM PDT by John Semmens

Students at ParsippanyHillsHigh School in New Jersey say they are planning a boycott to protest new lunch guidelines stemming from First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. Under the guidelines portions are smaller, there is less meat and bread and more vegetables. Students say the meals are too skimpy and leave them feeling hungry.

“The problem is too many of our nation’s children are obese,” the First Lady said. “Left to their own devices too many teens are over-eating. Parents aren’t doing their jobs. So, we are using our leverage to take up the slack.”

The “leverage” is federal aid that subsidizes the school lunches. “If the government is going to pay for these meals it has the responsibility and the right to control the menu,” Michelle insisted. “Those who want to eat more than we have determined is healthy can pay for their additional food with their own money.”

The possibility of a boycott was rated “no big deal” by the First Lady. “Refusing to eat also helps fight obesity. Studies have shown that calorie restriction helps prolong lives. Much as we may make fun of places like North Korea, the fact is that the starvation being imposed on the population by the government probably benefits everyone over the long term.”

In related news, Barack Obama is touting the presidential prospects for his wife. “She’s an incredible person and an incredible talent,” Barack bragged. “It would be a great sacrifice for her, but I’m confident she would put the nation’s welfare ahead of her own preferences if circumstances required it. Besides, seeing how slowly things have moved since I got here it might well take another eight years to get the job done. So, those who trusted in me may want to ensure that my policies are carried on by such means.”

Mochelle is way out of line.

I remember as a kid being forced to eat peas. I would hide them in baked potato skins, feed them to the dog when no one was looking...

At least my mother did not deny me an extra pork chop.

Lol! Ironic, Michelle Obama and her school lunches might end up doing more in creating the next generation of anti big government conservatives than anything we could possibly do.

Dawg! Almost had me!

Sadly the following is exactly what they are thinking they just aren’t saying it.

Don’t forget to do one about the prison in Illinois.

“the First Lady said. “Left to their own devices too many teens are over-eating. Parents aren’t doing their jobs. So, we are using our leverage to take up the slack.”

"And there’s no doubt that this is a serious problem. It’s one that is affecting every community across this country.

But just like with so many other challenges that we face as a nation, the African American community is being hit even harder by this issue.

We are living today in a time where we’re decades beyond slavery, we are decades beyond Jim Crow; when one of the greatest risks to our children’s future is their own health.

African American children are significantly more likely to be obese than are white children. Nearly half of African American children will develop diabetes at some point in their lives.

People, that’s half of our children. "

I got up to that line before I realized this was satire. You got me. Well done.

Here’s one. Satire needs some humor to it or at the very least, some exaggeration.

John Semmens is a big giant fail.

Who is George William Bush?


Sorry troll. It was George Walker Bush. There are more lies you spouted.

BTW, his father’s name was George Herbert Walker Bush.

The post on the link said “George William Bush”.

I was wondering who that was.

I am familiar with Perot as I live in Texas. I don’t get your points, truly. You stated my posts were DU-worthy. I still haven’t seen you show anything I wrote to be leftist. Keep trying.

Fact is, you just don’t like my opinion of one writer, so you looked at my sign-up date and tried to use that as an argument. Simple as that.
