U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told members of the National Restaurant Association on Monday that Americans need to adjust their tastes so that they like the kind of food the government believes they should eatand we have to make sure that what we do is create the appropriate transition.

Not sure that is possible...Are grubs on the government- approved shopping list?
As my son says “Word!”
He’s going to be in trouble with the food nazis if he keeps eating junk food ;)
That would be the North Korean model. I wonder if grass and snakes will be on the regime's approved food list?
If they can mandate how many miles per gallon your car must get, or how many bullets you can put in a magazine - why would it be so odd that they can mandate how much salt (or beef or candy) you can have?
Hey, we got our first Food Fascist. Congratulations, Obama. Now you’ve added fascists to your collection of marxist minions. Way to go.
“You will like our food, or else”
“We know where you eat”.
“TOFU or the gulag””.
Time to “sack” this “sack of shit” Vilsack.
Its going to take time for peoples taste to adjust and they will adjust over time, but it will take some time, he said. So, we have to make sure that what we do is create the appropriate transition.
"At the end of the day, though, we've got to deal with this," said Vilsack.
Michelle Fashion Police Alert Ping!

I’m still waiting for people to be fined or detained for walkig outside barefoot. Or leaning back in their chair.
They truly are our parents. Parents that we can pretend to elect!
USDA Secretary: “Soylent green. The miracle food of high-energy plankton gathered from the oceans of the world.”
Before the politically correct diet dictators got involved, the majority of people were thin and trim. Go back and look at old pictures or news clips. You probably won't find a fat person in an entire crowd. Now, it's hard to find a thin person anywhere.
I think the "government" diet is part of a population control sceme. People are rotting inside.
Black. Bean. Brownies.
Now I know, despite Bushwon’s assurances to the contrary, that this is full-on satire. Nobody talks about black bean brownies with a straight face.
Even crazy people have their limits.
I think the next transition needed is to transition the Dept. of Agriculture, Education, Housing & Urban Dev., Energy, Transportation, and other agencies such as EPA, ATF, etc. to a defunct status for the American public’s health and safety.
He’s right about one thing. We’re overdue for some adjustments.
Maybe this is what they have in mind? You won't be able to go shopping without it...
They can say that about soldiers,whose diet IS controlled in the field, but about the public?
No greater indication do we have of the total control the government of Obama intends for the people, down to what they eat?
Americans have always eaten damn well what they wanted, and that sure as hell will never change.
I suppose if one doesn't eat what the government says, one will be denied health car ( Obama Care?).Buahahahahahahahah!The obese will lose their coverage? The linkage is obvious.First Obama forces everybody onto the government plan, and then he will restrict coverage according to the latest politically correct dietary mean. I'd say that cannibalism is just around the corner. The first leftist that puts his/her hand in our fridge will have it eaten?
These people have GOT to go!
And never, EVER come back!
Red bean paste is actually pretty good. And I would try black beans in brownies but no one will force me to eat them.
I'd love to have options other than "salt" for spices in pre-prepped food.
That being said, the gov't has absolutely NO - none, Zero - business in dictating how companies process their foods. If I disagree with a company's method of food preparation, I simply choose not to patronize them, and both Mrs WBill and I do our own cooking. Which, frankly, we've found to be better in most cases anyway. :-)
