Fries with that? Now you'll need parents' permission as Michelle Obama unveils PG-rated meals....
Daily Mail ^ | 9/15/11 | Rachel Quigley

Posted on 09/15/2011 7:45:55 PM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

Not content with going after the nation's children, its grocery stores, the food pyramid and McDonalds, Michelle Obama is now going after the country's most beloved restaurant chains

Olive Garden, Red Lobster and its sister restaurants have pledged to serve healthier meals by cutting calories and sodium in its meals by 20 per cent over a decade.

And if the little ones desire some French fries they will only be able to do so with adult supervision.

Among promised changes for children, Darden Restaurants Inc said a fruit or vegetable side and low-fat milk will become standard with kids' meals unless a substitution is requested.

The First Lady called it a 'breakthrough moment' for the industry.

I am so disgusted with her. Stay out of my refrigerator. Stay out of my favorite restaurants. She is so dumb. I am sorry to be so derogatory but she is. This nut wants to cut the amount of food on our plate.....but does she say “Oh don't forget to cut the price in half?” No.....Stupid B!TCH!!!!!! She sickens me. Oh I can't believe how stupid I was when people were blasting her for some trips and I sorta defended the trips. I can certainly be an idiot at times.

Good thing I don’t go to any of those “restaurants.” A lot of Holder’s people do, though.

I posted this to my Facebook site, with the caption (inspired by you):

“According to the Nanny Staters, everything falls into two categories: ‘Mandatory” and “Forbidden.’”

(Thank you for crystallizing that thought!)

That’s all just fine Moochele, you have your Fries Polices and I will have the Voting Police.

So nobody will be able to vote for a DemocRAT unless they bring proof that they have an above average IQ.

It all works out fine for me Mrs Nanny Food Gestapo Freeloading Queen.

I wonder when they’ll go after buffets and other all-you-can-eat deals, perhaps with a special tax. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time with these characters.

I can't remember how many votes she received. Oh, wait, that's right she wasn't on the ballot. Then why does she have any freaking power?????

When kids grow up tell them the reason they couldn't enjoy a Happy Meal with a toy was because a Democrat decided they couldn't. Probably put an end to the party.

Who the hell elected her Food Czar?

I hate to say it, but these days a lot of people don’t get enough salt, especially in hot weather.

All this woman does is go on vacation and then come back and continue dictating what everyone must eat.

Diners are becoming more health-conscious and are asking for improvements, such as for their meals to be cooked without butter or with less salt or to be prepared any way but fried.

No, they are having choices forced on them by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Moochelle and Bloomberg.

This is fair season. Go to one and watch (at eat) as no one will eat anything remotely healthy, even if offered. The lines for the deep fried Oreos, butter etc. will be the longest.

Silly. You just need to get a decent French-Fry holster. For a few more bucks, you can get one with a ketchup container.

Her next step will be to demand fries, waffle fries and tater tots be made out of sweet potatoes. Sweet potato tater tots are glow-in-the-dark orange and taste mighty crappy. She’ll demand that light bulbs be made out of sweet potatoes. Then we will all look like we have jaundice.
