Posted on 06/20/2014 3:09:45 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
House Republicans are trying to end Michelle Obamas school lunch initative and the First Ladys not happy about it.
She used a White House event on Tuesday to rally opposition to a bill passed by a House subcommittee that would allow districts to suspend the program.
From Fox News:
Seeing her nutritional standards under threat, the first lady hosted a discussion with school leaders on Tuesday afternoon at the White House where she ripped efforts to roll back those guidelines.
This is unacceptable, Obama said.
The first lady said families realize the country is facing a health crisis, and the last thing we can afford to do right now is play politics with kids health.
School districts are claiming that the lunch guidelines are overly restrictive and kids are throwing away the required fruits and vegetables. Some children have complained they were still hungry due to limited portion sizes as a part of the initative (the USDA eventually scrapped the strict portion limits).
It is not unacceptable to believe that local school districts, who deal with students and parents on a daily basis, would have a better idea of how to feed their students than Washington bureaucrats and bored un-elected activists who dare to tell the peoples elected representatives how to do their jobs.
Check the ‘properties’ on that picture. Whoever uploaded it calls it “Hate Stare”. LOL
Ending government school lunches isn’t the answer. Ending government schools is the answer.
Her Imperial Highness stares out angrily over her meatball sub and insists that the kids receive their carrot sticks and celery.
The Commissar has spoken
“Her-Royal-Rather-Large-Hind-Ass” is telling congress what to do. This coming from an obviously overweight grifter who is telling us how we should eat. Amazing.
Which is what she's doing.
go climb back under you rock you fat ass bitch.
Mooche, get a grip. It is not a crisis, not even close. Everything is a crisis to these puke faced MoFo a$$ wipes. Unfortunately, many low info voters believe these dirt bags.
When I started out in school (1966)...the person who determined the school menu, nutrition standards, and amount....was the head gal of the school cafeteria (sixty years old, HS diploma, and making $5k a year). She and three other ladies...all working from 8AM to 1:30PM....got a budget from the county and did their analysis of what kids ate and what was simple enough to work.
Yeah, we had soup or stew at least one day a week. Yeah, we had some kind of peach cobbler or apple pie every single day. No sodas possible...either you had milk or a cup of water (from the fountain, not imported from Canada). Every spring, they got a truckload of tomato or pineapple juice from the state warehouse and we all had an afternoon sip of that.
The idea that we need someone from DC to make this decision, and carry the mess....is the most bogus statement that anyone can make. If you, the parent, are unhappy....raise the issue with the school and fire the head cook if they are that stupid. What riles me even more is that they seem to think that this special kid will get one great nutritional meal from the school....to make up for the lousy one-star nutritional breakfast or dinner they get at home. Once you admit that.....you are insulting parents, and just gaming the whole system.
What powers is the First Lady granted in the constitution again? I’m drawing a blank? (quizzical scratches head)
While Public School Kids Eat Healthy Lunches, Washington Elites Served Meatball Subs, Ice Cream
To what office was this scum sucking pig elected? By what authority does she decide what others eat? She’s just one more fat leftist lying lawyer.
Why can’t all students have the same lunches that Moochelle’s daughters get? Fair is fair and we all want everything to be fair.
Michelle (Michael) Antoinette is just full of it.
The federal department of indoctrination, has
never been conceived, until the Obama Soetero
Queer in charge and his drag queen were
immaculated, to be the department of nutrition.
I earned my high school diploma, before that peanut
farmer started that darn thing.
“Its Unacceptable To End My School Lunch Program”
Were there not school lunch programs for the destitute before MooChelle came along? That being said, school was never meant to be a free lunch program.
I truly pity the next Republican First Lady because no matter what cause she chooses to get involved in the Democrats are going to rip her to shreds.
> Michelle Obama Tells the Congress Its Unacceptable To End My School Lunch Program
I don’t recall anyone voting for her. She can’t tell Congress what to do.
After watching this first lady pull this sh#t I dont see how they have a leg to stand on.
Wait and watch. Doesn't matter who it is or what she chooses to support it's going to be ugly.
She is worried about the health of the children when her husband just brought in thousands of scabby illegals.
That’s the thing, Zer0 & Mooch declare something and the underlings say,”yez’uh boss man”.
What if the worker bees ignore their proclamation?
The school systems keep serving what they want. Mooch gonna have the school boards arrested?
MO, you just want to be able to tell them eat your gruel
Oh I agree. And it will be because the media allows it. When I hear it from the Dems I know I will be immediately making fun of this fatbutt nutritionist we have now.
When she can wear the same pant size as my wife I’ll take her seriously.
Malaysia and Saskatchewan get only the best. Our kids don’t deserve such royal delicacies as real food.
Barack Obama....... always a step or two behind
Mooch needs to understand that kids are throwing away her lunches and it’s costing millions in uneaten food, so what kind of nutrition are those children getting? Low blood sugar does not translate to good grades.
As for who is politicizing this lunch program let’s see who has the most to gain....why it’s Michelle, not the children.
This failed program has to go, and parents need to be able to send healthy lunches to schoool without some left wing nutcase confiscating and disposing of the child’s lunch.
It’s about time someone did something for the American Children who have to endure this nonsense. I’m all for healthy lunches, but these minimum wage cooks in public schools have no idea how to prepare some of the things being purchased, and if it’s not tasty and good...it’s going in the trash. You can’t throw a kiwi on a plate and entice a third grader to eat it, idiots all. Make a tasty little salad with the kiwi peeled and diced in it with a great dressing and you have a winner.....
Children should be included in taste tests of food that will be served in school lunches, but you cannot tell the leftist control freaks that.
These people need to learn a new word
Under what power does she rule?
Now these poor kids are bubble wrapped, dropped at the door, picked up. They have to have play dates set up for them. Referees and trophies for all. Parents to busy to pay much attention to them, over load the kids with activities. It's no wonder we are raising a bunch of tyrants?
I feel sorry for today's kids.
You said it, and I understand the ‘recess’ has been removed in some schools? It’s ludicrous. I was a tomboy and climbed trees, and I fell out. I have the scars to prove it.
I was rural so I rode the school bus in most grades. We have to change how schools operate because we are losing another generation to being ‘couch potatoes’....not to mention their brain cells are dying and what’s left is being turned left by brain dead liberal teachers.
Who the H E double hockey sticks is she to say that? No one that’s who. She was not elected.
Plus they drug all the kids they can’t control. I am pretty sure if I were in school today they would drug me. Back then the teachers would just take us outside and we’d run like crazy until we got rid of some of that energy!
Has this idiot not heard of Sea Food Allergies? Kids are refusing to eat the crap they are now being served, and it has spilled over into our hospitals, who had bad food to begin with just as school lunches have always been bad.
That hasn’t changed since my HS days. Before that we ate at our desk from a sack, bought a half pint of milk for 5 cents. We had 1 exception, a girl allergic to milk, she was allowed to bring apple juice instead.
Your pretending to be a lawmaker is unacceptable.
Tip of the day: don’t listen to nutrition advice given by fat people.
The exact picture of an optimal human diet isn’t yet entirely clear, but one thing is abundantly clear: the USDA recommendation (MyPlateOfMetabolicSyndrome, formerly called the Pyramid Scheme) is a disaster for everyone.
It advocates what amounts to 60% of calories from carbs, and most of that from grains (which means the multiple-threat all-purpose human toxin sold to you as “wheat”).
“The first lady said families realize the country is facing a health crisis,”
That is correct, actually. The incidence of non-infectious chronic diseases is rising faster than the GNP. We cannot afford a healthcare system for it (whether that system actually works or not).
Poster child for the problem is the Type 2 (not 1) Diabetes trend. Not just high. Not just rising. Accelerating. T2D is arguably a “non disease” that is merely a largely predictable metabolic response to a full time moderate to high glycemic diet (such as the USDA MyPlate). T2D is easily reversed at the syndrome and pre-diabetes stages with diet. It is usually reversible after that, depending on the severity of irreversible side effects.
Shifting to any of several low-carb high-fat diets (LCHF, paleo, primal, Wheat Belly, etc.) would be a vast and prompt improvement for most people, for a wide variety of ailments (and weight). The recent cover of Time “Eat Butter” signals that what the low carb community has known for years is now starting to show up in pop culture.
Phasing out government schools would also make the instant problem (school lunches) a non-issue.
She just admitted she’s too stupid to know what to feed her own kids. But OUR kids, that’s another story.
That used to be the idea. Now, virtually every little parasite gets "free breakfast". And the little parasites are encouraged to sign up for "free summer meals" to get breakfast, lunch AND dinner during the summer, for themselves AND a parent or sibling.
So even if the "parents" are worthless, lazy welfare scum, their little bastards won't go hungry. And this largesse is at OUR expense, and doesn't hurt their food stamp allotment so they can continue to blackmarket those.
I'm sorry, if you can't feed the children you've birthed, you don't deserve to have them.
Since when does she get the "right" to insist where our tax dollars are spent?
