Will Michelle Obama Tell You What You Can Feed Your Children?

I’m amazed that liberals are all about “My body – My choice” until they get into power. Then they want to dictate what we can eat and drink.

It’s one thing to recommend what we should eat, but it’s another thing to pass laws to force us to eat in a particular way. Then there’s the problem of what the government-controlled food policies say we should eat. The government has been pushing a low fat diet for decades. And what have been the results? More fat people.

In an attempt to reduce the obesity problem in America, the benevolent dictators in our government have been dictating what young people must eat when they are in a government school:

“Following new federal guidelines, school districts nationwide have retooled their menus to meet new requirements to serve more whole grains, only low-fat or nonfat milk, daily helpings of both fruits and vegetables, and fewer sugary and salty items. And for the first time, federal funds for school lunches mandate age-aligned calorie maximums. The adjustments are part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 touted by Michelle Obama and use the updated Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.”

A one-size-fits-all dietary program does not work, especially if a kid has a high metabolism or is an athlete. As a result of the food Gestapo overseeing what goes in a child’s month, students at a number of schools have said “enough.”

“[Last week] 70% of the 830 Mukwonago High students [in Wisconsin] who normally buy lunch boycotted cafeteria food to protest what they see as an unfair ‘one size fits all thing.’ Middle schoolers in the district also boycotted their school lunches, with counts down nearly half Monday. They’re not alone in their frustration; schools across the country are reporting students who are unhappy with the lunch offerings.”

Some of the students are not getting enough calories to last the day. Athletes are especially affected. In order to keep up with the rigors of weight training and sports like football, basketball, wrestling, tennis, and track and field, the prescribed daily calorie allotment is downright dangerous.

When I was in high school, I took extra sandwiches to school to help me gain weight. I lifted weights six days a week and practiced daily for the shot put, discus, and long jump. Today, kids are bigger and stronger than they were four decades ago. I would have lost weight on Michelle Obama’s restrictive calorie diet.

This is what the nation has voted for; a nanny State with a gun that’s in everybody’s business and pockets.

In an interview with Newsweek, Samuel L. Jackson described Michelle Obama as “superwoman” who “can be the president.” Please spare us.

That’s all we need — a meddling superwoman with the power of the government behind her. I could be a “Super” too if I had billions of dollars at my disposal and the Police-State to force my views on people.

I’m not relieved that adjustments have been made to government school menus. Get the government out of our schools altogether. In fact, if you children are in a government school, YOU get them out. They shouldn’t be there.

    First I admit I was suprised to read that michele is a women…with those arms I thought she was a male weight lifter. Oh well guess feminity is a thing of the past…but getting to the lunch program its the old saying…you can lead a horse to water but you can t make him drink it. Children who do not like the food will simply not eat it so I suggest michele keep out of our food and spend her time attending a charm school so that she can pass for a first lady!

    Well it’s only okay if the liberal loons say it is, remember you cannot disagree with these jerks, if you do not agree with them, they will come after you with names and try to discredit you. This is now the society we live in, the progressives have taken over. Four more years? Scary.

    She needs to take a look over her shoulder to see what is following her very close that is at least two ax handles wide and would take 2-3 trips if some one told her to haul butt!!

    Thank God we are homeschooling our son. That dictator has to go. She can try to tell me what to eat. Isn’t going to work. I applaud those kids. From the looks of things, she should be on that diet.

  • Mudpuppy

    I doubt her kids are being subjected to this.

    • disgusted democrat

      No Freinds school in D.C. is a private quaker school, and not under federal mandate to serve fed food.

    Who does this POS thinks she is?

  • mathis1689

    I want to see all of the Obamas eating the same garbage that she wants kids in school to eat. My bet is that they would throw it in the trash just like the school kids do.

  • David S. McQueen

    It’s all part of the liberal fascist ideology. It’s hypocritical on the part of the Obama regime to think that citizens should be free, then dictate to them what to eat, drive and listen to on the radio.

  • Ellman

    Michelle Obama needs to stop feeding herself. She makes Obama look like Ghandi on a hunger strike when she stands next to him.

    sam l. jackson, whose acting career revolves around yelling the FU*K word is being quoted? He IS an adiot. SLJ, now shut the F&^K up and go to bed, or to France…JUST GO! MOOchelle, you stupid POS, had her Attorney-dom liscense TAKEN FROM HER, as did our pretend POS fraud president. Right, she’s a superbroad only if It gets to cheat. If they play fair, we’d not know who those two users were. They’d still be running a 3-block area in South Chi trying to get Mickey Mouse registered to vote!

    I don’t think even our poor would vote for these two slimey arseholes. They are both frauds and cheaters!
