Be very scared of Michelle Obama if you are a parent of kids in school. Never mind that while her kids eat pizza and cream of mushroom soup for lunch at their private school and her husband smokes and eats junk food, your kids are supposed to survive on celery and carrot sticks among other kid loving treats like brown rice and low fat milk. It’s bad enough the kids are starving on this stuff but the cost is 20 to 25 cents higher than what lunch used to cost.
Maybe the scariest thing about this woman other than her Walmart wardrobe and the giant sums of tax payer money she uses for her trips with friends around the world are the following statements by her in relation to her school lunch diet: “The federal government has a responsibility for what children eat at school.” After that she says: “We can’t just leave it up to the parents.” Big Brother couldn’t have said it better. Does anyone sniff a socialist?
The Act that allows this new control also gives the federal government the authority to regulate the food sold at local schools in vending machines plus it regulates what children eat before school, at lunch, after school, and during summer vacations in federally funded school-based feeding programs.
Mark Levin..."She's the new
School cafeterias are now required to serve twice as many fruits and vegetables while limiting proteins and carbohydrates. For an average high school student, that means two baked fish nuggets, a cup of vegetables, half a cup of mashed potatoes, one whole grain roll and 8 ounces of fat free milk is the fuel that is served to get them through their last four hours of classes. That is about 800 calories; pretty unreasonable for growing kids. When I was in high school in the 50s, I knew guys who could eat that much for an appetizer!
"We hear them complaining around 1:30 or 2:00 that they are already hungry," said Linda O'Connor, a high school English teacher at Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, Kansas. "It's all the students, literally all the students... you can set your watch to it."
In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to one source. It’s a good example of the ingenuity and cunning of kids. They will not put up with this nonsense; they still know where the Circle K’s and Dairy Queens are.
Michelle is clueless. Eating junk food is a rite of youth. We had plenty of candy bars and soda pop growing up and no edict by her will stop kids doing it now. When kids get older, they normally move on to a better diet and cool it on the junk stuff. It has to be their choice and not some killjoy president’s wife looking for undeserved recognition.
Radio host Mark Levin described the Department of Agriculture and Michelle Obama's new school lunch regulations as "tyranny." “I think Michelle Obama is the new Eva Peron with her lunch standards," Levin said. "Like she knows something about this? Where does the Constitution empower her or that department to reach all the way down to every school- public school - in this country and set the menu?”
Hey, parents. I’ll bet you thought that you had the responsibility for what your kids ate for meals; not the mighty out of control federal government in Washington. But, as Michelle says above, it’s not up to you anymore. She wants to raise your kids her way and if you don’t like it, maybe she can send some of Big Sis’s government police to your house and force compliance.
