Skip to comments.Michelle Obama to wield influence over America’s diet
Posted on 06/29/2010 11:08:57 AM PDT by Nachum
Michelle Obama unveiled the newly-expanded Presidents Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition to D.C. school children last week. For years the Council (formerly known merely as the Presidents Council on Fitness and Sports) busied itself with pushing Americans to get outside and run around. But as with so many government initiatives under the Obama administration, its goals have expanded. The council now wants to influence your diet and while not a member, Michelle Obama will be working closely with the group to help guide its initiatives.

Dagny receives a phone call from Minnesota. The rail cars set to haul that states wheat crop have not shown up, and the massive harvest will rot in its silos. The caller says that once he hangs up, he is going to become a deserter. Dagnys investigation within the railroad shows that every necessary form has been filled out, but the grain cars are not going to Minnesota. She finds that the paperwork has been falsified, and Cuffy Meigs is sending the cars to Louisiana to carry Emma Chalmers soybeans, now deemed more important by the government bureaucracy than wheat.
Minnesotans riot and burn down government and railroad buildings, while the press clamps a lid on the story. The railroad rounds up every kind of car imaginable and sends them all to Minnesota, and grain slowly begins to move. When Minnesotans take matters into their own hands, the State Chief Executive asks for the Army to intervene, and the Aristocracy of Pull finally gives Minnesota a higher priority than Emma Chalmers. But its too late; the cars are in California where the soybean processing plant is located. Minnesota degenerates into civil war as the wheat rots, and the soybeans turn out to be unfit for human consumption.
Coming soon to a farm state near you.
She best stay out of my fridge.
YUCK..... If she were to wear that on the street, school kids would try to board her.
It sure looks like he’s trying to push that uphill.
>>Will this be like Stalins attempt to modify the diet of the Ukranians?<<
I was laughing and having a good time with this thread until I got to your post.
That may well be frighteningly true.
The Ukrainians were not armed.
WAKE UP AMERICA! Quit taking the sound bites at face value and really look at what Obamna meant when he said he wanted to "fundamentally remake" America. Notice, he doesn't want to fix what is wrong, no!no! He wants to make us something we have never been--Socialist/communist/Fascist.
If you are one of the ones who think these three are different--just know they are ALL three big/total govt control over every facet of your lives.
Every thing this bunch of Harvard pseudo intellectuals are doing is to that end--so we end up like Cuba. The state will assign us places to live, stores with coupons to go get our food, transportation, medical care (3d world, not first class) and dictate what we make. I have talked to someone who lived in the USSR, and it ain't pretty. I have friends who lived under Mussolini and Hitler and it was ugly and dangerous, and they were hungry and scared.
I am SOOOOO frustrated over the stupidity in this country. Even our poor have it good conpared to most of the countries in the world.
Big fat a$$ b*tch has nothing else to do....Why dosen’t she monitor her ahole husband’s diet and shut the f*ck up already.....
The slogan for her program: “And you WILL can have a butt the size of a cement mixer aka the Obama Butt”
Do you think we’ll ever go back to the First Lady just hosting tea in the afternoon instead of this activist-crap?
Laura Bush did a decent job of it while W was in office.
I liked her then.
If she's GOT to be non-political, at least let her lecture about something she's genuinely interested in; for instance, I'd like to know more about her collection of diamonds which I saw mentioned once or twice during the early days of Campaign 2008.
I seriously doubt that Michelle Robinson Obama has ANY authentic interest in nutrition, but I do know that she used to work out daily with friends at a gym in Chicago.
Leave Me Alone
I don't want to look like Michelle.
that bitch has nothing to say aboout what I eat!
She WON’T tell me what to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She better go back to the zoo.
>>The Ukrainians were not armed.<<
You can’t eat bullets.
Oink, oink, oink!
Maybe she should work on her own fat ass before telling the rest of us what to eat.
“The troublemakers are those who need public cures for their private ails.” Eric Hoffer
Maybe she could team up with Christie Brinkley on the Total Gym XLS
to demonstrate the bun buster crunches and squats.
In fact, she and Barry should just abandon the White House gig to do that infomercial full-time.
What do wookies eat?
Somehow a drug user, smoker, and unhealthy eater telling others to not use drugs, smoke, or overeat just ain’t gonna fly. These people make me sick. I don’t do any of the above unhealthy things and haven’t for 58 years. I don’t need to be lectured by those know-it-alls. Hey Michelle, why not take up a more benign cause, such as Lady Bird’s highway beautification or the introduction of more garden clubs throughout the USA.
Lets not be too hypocritical. If Laura had had such a rear, I am quite sure that there would be many male FReepers with restrining orders against them, plus some in jail for trying to break into the White House bedroom.
A “more benign cause” doesn’t directly control other people’s behavior.
This is the driving motivation of these fascists.
>>The Ukrainians were not armed.<<
You cant eat bullets.
That is not their function.
LOL... “If”, if, if... if I win win the Lotto I’d buy a larger boat. Darn, I don’t gamble, but if I did...... ;>)
>>>>The Ukrainians were not armed.<<

So what are you going to do? Steal food from your neighbor? Shoot and eat your neighbor? It takes a fed community to even fight a revolution.
Read up on the Ukrainian famine where they systematically starved millions.
It doesn’t matter how many bullets you have at that point. Unless you stocked up on a year’s supply of food (or more), you can’t get food. No guns are going to help you when everyone else has gleaned the squirrels from your neighborhood. They could have had hundreds of guns. If they couldn’t move to another country (which they couldn’t), they were starved to death because the food supply was stolen from them and there was nothing to be had.
“they were starved to death because the food supply was stolen from them . . .”
They were not armed.
Hey Queen Michelle, Antoinette; mind your own business, and keep your dirty, rotten hands off of our food choices and out of our kitchens!
Little Mss. Fauntleroy, WHEN YOU AND OBAMESSIAH stop shoveling Kobe Beef, Chicago Pizza (made for you by a private chef flown in from Chicago just for you at our expense), Lobster thermador, caviar and the finest wines down YOUR gullet, ALL at the taxpayers' expense; WHEN YOU AND OBAMESSIAH stop throwing lavish gala parties with exotic foods and wines costing the taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars, on a weekly basis, just so that you and your phony Marxist, Communist, emperor/king want to be husband, can eat, live and party like billionares, Cesar, the Sun King or the Czar of Imperial Russia while you destroy America from within and say by EVERYTHING you do: "Let THEM eat cake!", only THEN will you have the moral RIGHT and authority to admonish the rest of us as to how and what we should eat and what we should do regarding OUR food and exercise choices. Until then, do us all a favour: keep your big mouth shut and your delusions of grandeur plans regarding Americans diet and exercise to yourself because both you and your husband are nothing but hypocrites who are baying "Do as we say, not as we do", and freedom loving AMERICANS want nothing to do with you OR your fascist designs on how and what we eat.
It will not be true in America, because unlike the poor souls in the Ukraine... Millions upon millions of Americans own LOTS OF GUNS, they have LOTS OF AMMUNITION and most of us know how to use them :o)
Gosh, friend, you read my mind!
They were not armed.<<
The government will have BIGGER guns than you no matter what. When they surprise you in the night, you get one, maybe two shots off before they kill you, then they rape your wife and daughters, take your sons into their service and throw the ladies into reeducation camps.
Holy crap. What kind of dream world are you living in? I KNOW people who lived in Slovakia and Poland. They will tell you straight off that the guns in this country are a deterrent but if the government wants you, you will die after taking just a few of them out.
Remember Waco? They had guns too.
Thank you for providing the historical context of my snarky question. I shouldn't have assumed that people would know what I was talking about.
You will DIE. That’s all.
One word. Waco.
If they want you, you will be dead or reeducated.
When it comes like a snowball, a couple of shotguns aren’t going to keep you alive.
Some Jews boarded the trains to Auschwitz. Some Jews killed Nazis in the Warsaw ghetto. The ones who boarded the trains were part of the problem.
You cite the Slovaks and the Poles.
I’ll take my notes from the Romanians.
Looks to me like she needs to get her own house in order first!
You will DIE. Thats all.
The difference is that the cowardly and servile live to no purpose, and know only fear and shame while they wait to die.
>>You cite the Slovaks and the Poles.
Ill take my notes from the Romanians.<<
Take your notes from the Branch Davidians.
The reason WHY the Ukrainians were starved to death is because they fought. If the government wants you dead, your little popgun isn’t going to do a thing.
Dream on my FRiend. Your power is in the ballot box.
>>The difference is that the cowardly and servile live to no purpose, and know only fear and shame while they wait to die.<<
You’re such a cowboy.
So you die. Looks like you want to.
Me, rather than dreaming of going out in a blaze of glory, I’ll do my part to get rid of the Marxists now.
"Live Free or Die" still means something where I come from and it is also true for millions upon millions of law abiding CITIZENS of the United States of America who will not go quietly into the night.
Because she's so concerned with what OUR kids are doing, it's only fair to question what Sasha and Malia eat and how much exercise they get?
Now, about that White House swing set that cost thousands of dollars...do they EVER use it?
Of course they won’t. We are planning to be out of here this January. Heading down to our vacation home for a couple of years, maybe permanently. Death care was the final straw. I refuse to pay a single cent towards it. I’m taking my money and leaving. BHO can KMA!
She needs to look in the mirror, she’s a bit of a heifer herself.
“Youre such a cowboy.”
More of an Indian, actually.
