Skip to comments.Michelle Obama Vows Veto of Changes to School Lunch Menus
Posted on 05/30/2014 4:30:46 PM PDT by John Semmens
First Lady Michelle Obama says she will "veto" any effort by Republicans in Congress to grant local school districts discretion to deviate from her prescribed "healthy fare" food choices. "Obesity is a serious health threat and I have worked too long and hard to allow the gains I have achieved to be undermined by people suffering from nutritional ignorance," she declared.
School districts have sought freedom to diverge from the First Lady's program because many of their students refuse to eat what is served. Nonetheless, Michelle sees no reason to yield or compromise. "Even if it is true that some of their students won't eat what's good for them, I can't permit the substitution of unhealthy alternatives," she insisted. "If this means that some students go without lunch, well, is that really so bad? Kids today are way too fat. Missing one meal a day would probably benefit most of them."
Meanwhile, the lunches served to Michelle's daughters at the posh Sidwell Friends School deviate considerably from what she has decreed must be mandatory for public schools catering to the broader population.

Maybe she should just pass another law or at least sign an EO.

I don’t see her as POTUS until 2025..after Hillary.
Thank goodness lunch is included in the $25 grand tuition!
First “Lady”s” have veto power? What planet are these idiots from?
Impersonating a federal official is a felony isn’t it?
Interesting... I am not a lawyer. But I am sure someone will know this answer.
She has veto authority now? Did I miss a Royal (executive) Order?
I thought she was elected associated POS already.... Er, I mean potus. Yeah, that’s it. Associate pResident Of The United States
No wonder she was disbarred. The woman is an idiot.
I am 50. My mom only ever worked part time when we were kids and it was either at night, when my dad was home or grandma watched and fed us. We walked to school in the AM, we walked home for lunch, we walked back for the afternoon and then walked home after school. We did not play video games and we played outside until the street lights came on. We whined if we could not go outside. Even if it was snowing!
I think the cause is not lunch!
heh. I see you are still reeling in a few. Of course she may have effective veto power via the teacher’s unions at the publik skools.
I gotz da gravel...

It is satire, but very close to truth. Personally I blame tv/video games leading to no outdoor play/exercise and parents willing to use tv/games as a babysitter.
Almost fell for this one. John, you are a genius. :)
