The Obama administration is moving to phase out junk food advertising on football scoreboards and elsewhere on school groundspart of a broad effort to combat child obesity and create what Michelle Obama calls a new norm for todays schoolchildren and future generations.
This new approach to eating and activity is not just a fad, Mrs. Obama said Tuesday as she described the proposed rules at the White House.

... It's an order!!
Cut out government in states affairs.It’s none of their business.
Here is an idea: Let’s cut Government out of schools, PERIOD!

The Queen speaks and it shall happen ... oh wait a minute, it was his wife that is setting the food rules. My bad.

Her @$$ needs its own zip code
Guess she can’t imagine her big butt because she has “toned” arms. Fifty years old now? Oh, let’s watch her menopause: http://www.34-menopause-symptoms.com/
Massive unemployment and deficits
And these SOBs worry about this crap
Will the States EVER stand up on their hind legs and tell the Obamas to “stuff it” regarding the continuous infringement on States’ Rights? These people are dispicable!
