The list, ping
...what a hick this woman is.
I guess someone will now get paid to scrape the faux vanilla cream out of Oreos.
Ironic cause for the wookie to lecture us on, given the junk that’s accumulated in her trunk since inauguration day and both the obamas gushing over the WH pie, waffles and grits
Side Note: How bout taking the vending machines out of schools? Cost free.. Sure school will lose the incentive money...so what!
Govenment in a vending machine?
You put the money in and someone else chooses the snack they'll get.
You put the money in and it just goes immediately on to someone’s EBT card.
Vending machines full of food that no one wants to buy. Yeah, that’ll help stimulate the economy.
Anyone still wonder why Michelle didn’t want want pictures of herself scarfing down a big cheeseburger and fries this summer?
“Government in a Vending Machine” is NOT Aerosmith’s follow-up to “Love in an Elevator.”
This from somebody who grows poisoned vegetables?
Can you imagine a nice Caesar Salad after sitting around in a vending machine for as long as those peanut M&Ms have been there?
Mmm mmm mmm.
Get your daily does of apples and celery....in government buildings....
“...HHS’s recently-announced plan to spend $373 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on plans to, among other things, improve the healthfulness of foods in vending machines.”
During the Great Depression, government stimulus money employed poor citizens to build Hoover Dam, the Golden Gate Bridge and many other useful projects. Omama’s stimulus money puts yogurt into school vending machines. Where is the vision of greatness in Omama land?
Ol’ burger-butt weighs in again....
The Obama Big Spenders love to spend our tax money without much discipline.
Has she looked at her own hind end lately? ;)
Really, Michelle? The way your husband is trashing the economy, we’ll all be REAL skinny, REAL soon.
Except you Elitists, of course. Have another side of designer beef, LOL!
That’ll be $373 Million dollars, please.
