WASHINGTON, D.C. First, Michelle Obama seized control of your childs school lunch and made it healthy. Now, the First Lady wants to change the way you buy groceries.
michelle obama shopping 337 x 244A new 80-page report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture explains that federal bureaucrats hope to use a variety of tools to modify the way Americans select food items at the supermarket.
The stated goal is steer consumers toward fruits and vegetables and away from sugar- and fat-laden items. The plan is in line with Michelle Obamas stated second term agenda to impact the nature of food in grocery stores, reports FreeBeacon.com

She can try to “steer” people all she wants,
but the fact is, those “consumers” she’s targeting know what they like and what they don’t,
and if they had a pile of fresh fruits in front of them and a 10 oz bag of chips on the other side of an obstacle course, they’d eat the chips.
Yes, folks, she really IS that stupid.
Of course, just limiting EBT purchases to only ‘healthy’ foods would be far too simple.
EBT card holders know how to ‘manage’ their card to buy cigs. Maybe barter with ‘good’ food, or at store who doesn’t care.
I think this could be a great weight loss tool. No one is going to want to buy food if they have to suffer through pushing a cart around with this harpy’s voice coming out of it, telling you what to buy.
Fruits, vegetables and basic cooking ingredients would be the way for EBT to go. Will never happen though ....
let me know when you get those talking EBT cards in
production...you know, the ones that say, “No lobster,
can’t buy that, No chips, no soda, can’t buy that.
Eat your vegibles. This message brought to you by
the same wymon that is starving your kids in school.”
They government wants to monitor you while you shop for groceries?
Is there any element of a persons life so mundane and ordinary and private that the unlimited government types think is not their business?
I cannot wait to hear about them bitching that the Tax dollars are not paying
for any more of their extravagant vacations. Can you imagine how their
daughters lives will be? With their heads so messed up any Man would be right
to run for the hills at the sight of either of them. LOL, dysfunctional bliss.
Restricting what you can buy on a SNAP card would be far more effective.
Imagine for your entertainment:
A high homeless person starts pushing a cart that talked to him.
I’m from New Orleans and I think I can safely say if Michelle came down and gave us a choice of a head of broccoli or some friend food - guess what would win. I’m not saying it is a healthy choice, just realistic.
I was behind a person not long ago whose cart contained only MEAT. Mostly steaks, chops, and roasts. Paid for by EBT of course.
Will they use the Voice of the Wookiee ?
Oh yeah! Plus I’ll meet you at the Walmart. On the first of the month, when all the fat welfare queen come in. You bring the chairs, I’ll bring the popcorn!
At least a food stamp card that can only buy healthy foods will have a lower street value. Fruits and vegetables? That's only worth 20¢ on the dollar rather than the old 50¢.
no imagine a high scziphrenic patient that is pushing a cart that talks to him
doing everything she can to profile every class of Americans as uneducated overweight slobs
except modifying the ebt cards to stop accepting junk food,
tellin the welfare folks what junk food they can’t buy - that rasist!
OH you mean like a Colorado drug user that ate too much wacko tobacco?
Such arrogance. Unbelievable.
Imagine how insulted, belittled, and downright angry it would make a normal person feel to have big mamma’s obnoxious voice telling us we done good with what we bought.
The pompous arrogance of these elitists cannot be overstated.
Great. Now, with a trip to the supermarket, we’ll be accosted by swarms of nagging shopping carts - “Put that down. Put that back. Your ObamaCare rates will go up if you eat that.”
PUT DOWN THAT BACON !!!
PICK UP THAT ARUGULA !!!
DO AS I SAY - NOT AS I DO !!!
a few years ago the local grocery store determined to introduce shopping carts with built in calculators, so you could track your shopping costs in the store. within two months they had abandoned the project as people would steal the calculators off the carts, and leave the damaged carts.
Paid for by Y-O-U, not E-B-T.
I can barely handle the nagging voice of the self check out.
"Unauthorized item in bag area".
"Please check your cart for other items"
"Please place item in bag"
"Please select your form of payment"
I would be the first to sabotage a talking shopping cart. I don't use any government subsidy/program for my groceries, and I'm not gonna listen to some elitist witch's voice while shopping.
Big bags of rice and dried beans will keep em alive. If they want more than that, they can get a job.
The Associated Press photo you posted has to be removed. Please don’t bypass restrictions imposed upon Free Republic by Associated Press, Getty Images, Reuters, etc. by posting their photos here.
Someone would figure out how to hack into them and change the messages to dirty jokes or something!
Or turn the volume way, way up, so being in the store would be annoying. Imagine a store full of grocery carts screaming the most inappropriate things! 8^)
Sorry, I’ll be sure to check if it’s one of those restricted sites next time.
“Do you really need that pound cake?”
“That’s a lot of beer!”
“No such thing.”
“Did you forget the broccoli?”
“Why did you park so close to the entrance? Walking is good for you!”
“Really? OK then.”
“Where are you going? You passed your car.”
“I thought you said walking was good for me.”
“Where are you taking me, Dave! I’m not supposed to leave the parking lot.”
“We’re going to the metal recycler. “I can get $10 for you.”
“That’s not funny, Dave!”
I doubt any store will allow this insanity. To many heavy objects to break them with.
Will they use the Voice of the Wookiee ?
Of course, make no mistake, Moochelle is just as much of a narcissist as the chief child smuggler.
So, she is focusing her energy on things that really matter. /s
Hello, Michelle, hundreds of children in Chicago are being killed everyday! You know, the city where you call home!
Fat food nazi
Or, you could get rid of EBT cards and give these people a sack of groceries in exchange for some work each day...now that is radical thinking!
Can you imagine the cost of something like this?
Of course it will be built by some company the party picks to do this.
If it works out like obamacare, it will curse you in Mandarin Chinese, start generating a lot of heat then set your bread on fire.
Oh Boy Is This Great from animal house.
“I was behind a person not long ago whose cart contained only MEAT. Mostly steaks, chops, and roasts. Paid for by EBT of course.”
Did you tell them to enjoy it?...because it’s not going to last much longer.
“Imagine how insulted, belittled, and downright angry it would make a normal person feel to have big mammas obnoxious voice telling us we done good with what we bought.”
My ears don’t hear SQUELCHING sounds.
