Michelle Obama to wield influence over America’s diet
daily caller ^ | 6/29/10 | Caroline May

Posted on 06/29/2010 11:08:57 AM PDT by Nachum

Michelle Obama unveiled the newly-expanded President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition to D.C. school children last week. For years the Council (formerly known merely as the President’s 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.

From A Navigational Tool for Atlas Shrugged, currently awaiting a publisher.

Dagny receives a phone call from Minnesota. The rail cars set to haul that state’s 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. Dagny’s 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 it’s 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.

>>Will this be like Stalin’s 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.

oh, yeah! It is the ambition of Michelle and Barry to hold total sway over the entire population. Look to govt. for our housing, food, medical, education--forget religion; forget doing well for ourselves--after all, it would be terrible to have more than the average citizen of Africa.

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.

Yeah, I liked it better when she talked about her childhood and would have preferred she'd share with us her interests in black liberation theology ---- instead of these FAKE gardening & cooking & fashion interests that the DNC and Oprah insist she pretend that she has.

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.

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.

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.

A “more benign cause” doesn’t directly control other people’s behavior.
This is the driving motivation of these fascists.

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.

The American people have a message for Mrs. Marxist:

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.

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.

The famine claimed up to 10 million of Ukrainian lives as peasants’ food stocks were forcibly removed by the Soviet government through NKVD (predecessor of KGB) and secret police. Stalin had full knowledge of the destructive force of the famine.

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.

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.

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.

Better to die a FREE MAN than to allow yourself and your family to be intentionally starved to death by the State.

"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.

Doesn't anyone wonder why Michelle is always seen promoting her "Let's Move" school programs without ever seeing her two daughters involved?

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?
