This is Mrs Obama's way of getting in the news while also looking like
she's contributing. As another comment noted, she has no background in
nutrition whatsoever. Why not let experts create guidelines... but not mandates.
Each school district is different. So consequently needs the room to
adjust to it's own peculiarities. There are cultural and economic
differences across the country that effect students' eating habits. Various
school districts need the authority to adjust accordingly. What good
does it do to force on kids food that they won't eat... and thus most of it
ends up in the garbage can? Besides being a big waste of food and money, the
kids end up being less healthy overall. This program initially sounds like a
good idea, but ends up being unrealistic and more unwanted government intrusion
into the lives of it's citizens. Where in the Constitution is
the authority given for the government to dictate even the eating habits of
Americans? It isn't! The last New York City mayor wanted to mandate the
size of soft-drinks people can buy. We seriously need to put a reign on
government control of our lives.
The photo with this article shows the true Michelle "For the first time in
my life I'm finally proud to be an American" Obama: totally shocked and
offended that someone might actually disagree with her.My 11 yr old
daughter tells me routinely what she had for lunch, as in, every single thing
that was on her plate that day. In the last 2 years, all due to Michelle's
pushing, the quality and overall health of my daughters' meals, and the
quality and overall health of her fellow students' school lunches, have
drastically declined.A cheese quesadilla for the main course?
Really?And, yes, I do blame Michelle for this because Congress
wasn't pushing for these school lunch changes before her husband got into
Do you liberals know what is happening to your "health food" forced
served at public schools? Check the garbage can! Don't believe it? Ask the
school lunch room employees!
I'm still not understanding why the first lady thinks she is over the
school lunch program and the obese police. I am also not understanding why the
first lady thinks she is an expert on raising our children as well as her
background in nutrition. She was an attorney and taught school with barack and
lived off of government grants. Not exactly a background in nutrition. She has
a large staff that cares for her and her two kids. Not exactly a peasant like
the rest of us....However, people seem to believe that giving all of
the power to the government to babysit them is the way to go. Yet they
can't stop there. They want to force everyone into the same loser system
that has been proven time and time again to be a failure.The only
comfort, is the knowledge that $17 Trillion of debt is going to nip us in the
butt in the future. The whole system will collapse and then the true power
So will little Johnny get his mom's lunch sack for lunch or a government
'Obama-meal'...to go along with his 'Obama-books' and his
'Obama-clothes'. It takes a village ...not a mother ....remember?
