Angry students snap photos of lunches, tell Michelle Obama: You call this a [expletive] lunch?
The Washington Times ^ | April 7, 2014 | By Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 04/07/2014 4:35:14 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Students from around the nation have been taking to Twitter and other social media sites to post snapshot photos of their meager lunches — in some cases, a sad-looking sandwich with a carton of milk — and say to the first lady: Thanks a lot, Michelle Obama, for the rations.

One wrote, next to a picture of a hot dog roll that seemed spread with tomato sauce and cheese, on a tray with three small cherry tomatoes and a carton of lower-fat milk: “You call this a [expletive] lunch? @BarackObama @MichelleObama,” The Blaze reported.

And others were just as blunt in expressing disapproval. Next to a picture of a plastic white tray containing a small roll and a messy-looking concoction of what appeared to be mashed potatoes, scrambled hamburger and corn, another wrote: “@MichelleObama so this is the ‘healthy school lunch’ …”

Another picture of a flat sandwich that seemed to be a hamburger on a tray with a cut kiwi half and a packet of ketchup was posted by a parent who attended school lunch with her child and then tweeted: “@MichelleObama my school lunch while eating with my daughter. Only other choice was a scoop of salad. This is sad!”

I’m guessing the Obama’s daughters eat the same meals, right?

President Obama talked about how great this new Pope is for declining lush accommodations, etc.

Meanwhile the Grifter in Chief lives high on the hog, throwing Wednesday night House Parties with hippity hop rock stars (for PBS, don't you know) and lavish meals, when he isn't jetting around to fundraisers and golf games.

One wonders whether these students and their parents understand the message being conveyed (your Democrat Party political “Betters” know what’s best for you) and whether they can also grasp the concept that they can vote the supporters of these tyrants out of office.

“Imagine what it will be like to have our kids begging us to buy them fruits and vegetables instead of cookies, candy and chips.
Fruits and vegetables don’t just make us feel good, they taste good, too.”

~Michelle Obama

If you want to win a war you keep your troops well fed. I guess The First Lady( I know I just started laughing myself) doesn’t see American children as her troops.

The Obama’s want all these “evil rich white” folk’s kids to eat this crap so they know what the poor have to eat right? Probably, I know how these sh#@stains in the Oval office think.

The lunches aren’t free. Those of us who actually pay taxes, pay for those lunches.

Are the meals on trays like this? The Royal Navy paid the enlisted men X (depending on the year) plus “three squares a day.” Each sailor had a regulation square tray that was covered with food three times a day.

I was telling the guys at work about this last night. One actually said, “Well, the little fatties need a diet!” Another said, “These brats’ parents are too lazy to make them a lunch at home?” To which I said, “Well, Richmond, Virginia and Chicago has outlawed home lunches without a paper from a doctor.”

They didn’t believe me, until I provided evidence.

Waking people up -one eye at a time.

Novel idea. Maybe they ought to pack a lunch. I did and if I’d had the nerve to complain about it my Dad would have set me straight.

Let us not forget Subway is doing the same thing...

I guess my wife was not listening to me when I went on a rant about Subway and kids meals (who am I kidding.. she never listens to me) and them tossing in with the first idiot..

8 bucks she paid for subways version of the lunches shown in this thread.

Coupled with another 6 bucks someplace else to actually fill the kid up. who must listen to me when I don’t get fed enough because he said “the appetizer is gone. Where is the meal?”

My kids want me to pack their lunches. For one, they like what I pack them. For another, they have a scant half-hour for lunch. By the time they get to the cafeteria and wait in line for a tray, they're looking at maybe 10 minutes to eat. All this wailing and gnashing of teeth -- sheesh, people, get a grip. The solution is as far as your own fridge or pantry.

Most of the parents on the free lunch program support democrats.

At least they used to.

Of course, the GOP has nothing to say that might pick up some of these pissed off voters support.

as long as the school allows bring your own. many are closing that option down.

Our school tried.. To many of us revolted.

They also are NOT following the “lets move” dot meal mandates.

I’ve heard some deep urban school districts have tried that, but I don’t know that it’s ever actually been “outlawed” anywhere — has it?
