Michelle Obama Fights
GOP On School Lunch Rules

Associated Press, by Darlene Superville

WASHINGTON-- First ladies typically avoid getting into public scraps, but Michelle Obama has jumped into perhaps her biggest battle yet. She´s fighting a House Republican effort to soften a central part of her prized anti-childhood obesity campaign and she says she´s ready "to fight until the bitter end." Mrs. Obama even mocked the GOP effort in an opinion column and argued her case before her Twitter followers. "Remember a few years ago when Congress declared that the sauce on a slice of pizza should count as a vegetable in school lunches?" she wrote in The New York Times. "You don´t have to be

She was not elected and neither was Valerie. Our government has been turned over to them by the laziest man on the planet and so far all they have done is create a big mess. They have set back women´s push for power by being incompetent and having too much hubris to admit it. I can´t wait for them to be out of the WH permanently. 2016 can´t get here fast enough!

Hey, Mooch is right! The sauce on a pizza is made from tomatoes and they are FRUITS. She says she wants kids to eat more fruits and veggies, so what´s the problem with pizza sauce?

One of the lunch photos I´ve seen posted by unhappy kids shows a piece of chicken on a plain bun. What´s healthier, that or a slice of pizza which has cheese (calcium), tomato sauce (vitamin C), sausage (protein) and crust (grain)?

If I remember correctly, as obviously Moochie doesn´t, the school lunch kerfluffle was about allowing ketchup to count as a vegetable. That lasted about ten seconds. But this is what you get when politicos try to micromanage your life. And yes, I´m including Mooch. She´s as political as they come.

Botanically speaking, tomatoes are berries and therefore fruit. On the other hand, a case could be made that anything that is neither animal nor mineral is, by process of elimination, vegetable. That would leave both air and water as vegetables. A knotty problem. But Queen Kong should BUTT out.

But, Moochelle, you DO have to be a nutritionist to declare what and how much food is appropriate for each individual. You are NOT a nutritionist and you never will be. You aren´t even a lawyer! FTA: The association says it fully supports getting kids to eat healthier but says many districts are losing money because students aren´t buying the healthier lunches. Even your unionized lackeys don´t believe you know what you are doing.

"How can we call these standards a success when they are driving students away from the program?" she [Diane Pratt-Heavner, a spokeswoman for The School Nutrition Association] said.

It doesn´t matter what you call it. All that matter is that they do what Michelle tells them to do, whether it´s a success or not. The goal is for Michelle to be co-president and dictate what people should do, just as her husband does.

As for mocking the sauce on a pizza being a vegetable, er, it is. It is made from tomatoes (tomatoes are really a fruit, but that´s irrelevant). The stomach doesn´t know whether a tomato is in uncut form or pureed. So, dear, sweet, gentle Michelle, the sauce really IS a vegetable.

Michelle Obama is bossy biddy. I believe much of the obesity crisis in this country is due to lack of exercise. Kids are more sedentary. They play video games. They are not outside playing tag and hide and seek. We had two recesses per day in school and PE twice a week. We walked to and from school. I realize that was then and this is now, but kids need to be up and about. They also need to eat foods they enjoy. A peanut butter sandwich with a few chips some celery and carrots and an apple was a staple when I was a kid. Michelle needs to butt out (no pun intended). This is not her business. Parents should decide what their kids eat. No one wants your opinion because you are doing more harm than good when the kids won´t eat what you suggest. I am, however, a big proponent of NO vending machines in school. No pop, candy, etc. Kids don´t need the temptation., but for goodness sake allow them to bring appropriate treats on their birthday. This whole thing has gotten out of hand. Use some common sense and quit listening to the food Nazi´s.

The Little Dictatress Who Could wants to control your kiddies´ lives. This isn´t about proper nutrition. It´s about exerting and coercing the same kind of power her hubby weilds. She wants a piece of the action.

She said that pizza sauce wasn´t a vegetable. Er, it is. (Technically it´s a fruit, but that´s not relevant here.) The body doesn´t know the difference between an uncut tomato and a pureed tomato, so she is wrong.

Have you ever noticed how liberals are the only people who seem to have this overweening compulsion to control what other people do? Conservatives never do that. It´s an interesting phenomenon.

Speculating, there is something in the DNA of people who become liberals that makes them want to seek power over others. Never content to allow people to make their own choices (for reasons which escape me), liberals wrap their lives and their tentacles around everything that can be molded to conform to their idea of what is right and good. Nevermind that their solutions always restrict and never allow expansion and growth.

Is is that liberals are born, not made? Do they become liberals because of a recessive gene? Or does liberalism cause them to develop a stunted sense of right and wrong?

Still studying this...

Obamacare is a success but nobody is buying it. The school lunch program is a success but the kids aren´t buying the lunches. Electric cars are the salvation of the planet but nobody is buying them. I see a pattern here. The control freaks in the White House know what´s best for us but we aren´t listening, aren´t we the rude ones?

Why do they continue to call that thing a lady? She´s a "first" alright, the first ignorant, whining harpy to ever disgrace the White House. Expensive dresses do not make a lady, class does.

How can they blame the GOP for our insubordination when the GOP has done absolutely nothing since 2008?

It´s group think,
orientation into being puppets.

Those of us who chose to go another path are said to be different with a derogatory smirk. Being different isn´t tolerated. It isn´t comfortable to the limited think of a liberal/democrat. That´s one of the reason there is no deductive/logical thinking on their part. It isn´t approved by the majority.

So, they just change the subject or name call.

If kids are shunning the lunches foisted on them by Mooch´s program, why not just implement an Affirmative Action policy around it? It´s the way authoritarian socialism tries to force businesses and schools to select candidates they don´t really want, maybe the same approach will persuade kids to select food they don´t really want...

Of course, the only remaining problem will be getting the kids to actually eat the stuff. Enter the program to re-purpose all those feeding funnels siezed from illegal foie gras operations -- use ´em to force-feed the kids what Mooch decides they should eat.

But make sure to leave Obama´s kids in their private school that isn´t affected by her self-righteous dictates...

Okay, Michelle-bashers, you don´t understand. According to the first 20 pages of "Blood Feud", the First Lady is building a series of accomplishments so she will have a record on which to run for political office. Do any of us think Ma Belle is going to start with the Chicago City Council? My inference is that she intends to begin by challenging Hillary Clinton in 2016.

So, we have to let her alone while she gets ready to run the country. The school lunch program is just the beginning.

Mrs. Obama needs to require that Sidwell Friends adopts the menu requirements she inflicts on students in public schools. Show me a elite private school that follows Mrs. Obama´s orders, and I will favor applying the same rules to public schools.

Why Israel Is Winning This War
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams    Original Article

The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

In a 15-minute telephone interview, the Republican Akin compared his downfall in the 2012 Missouri Senate race to that of former Sen.

Mark Pryor, knocks on a voter´s door in Little Rock and discovers the potential GOP supporter owns a gun. In the world of voter outreach, it´s a potentially crucial piece of information; with the right pitch from a group like the National Rifle Association, for instance, it could prove decisive in getting that voter to pull the lever for Cotton.

Two of the larger social trends of our time — the growth of payday gambling and the legalization of marijuana — have two things in common: They are justified as the expansion of personal liberty, and they serve the interests of an expanding government. The ideological alliance behind these changes is among the strangest in U.S. politics. Libertarians seek to lift governmental restraints on consensual acts. State governments seek sources of revenue without the political inconvenience of requesting broad tax increases. Both find common ground in encouraging and exploiting the weaknesses and addictions of citizens. (And business interests and their lobbyists,

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. It also told tens of thousands of residents to leave Gaza´s border areas ahead of more strikes. The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said. On the Israeli side, one man was killed and several people were wounded since the fighting erupted on July 8. The renewed bombings came a day after Israel initially

I took a look back at the current crisis of illegal Central American minors in the Weekly Standard article “Disorder at the border,” published in this past Friday in the new issue of the magazine. In retrospect, I think that the events of the preceding days fixed these issues in the public mind and culminated in President Obama’s notable address following his meeting in Dallas with Governor Perry. Obama had resisted the meeting with Perry, as he resisted visiting the border along the Rio Grande. In Dallas and Austin for big-buck fundraisers with his conspicuously wealthy friends, Obama was ultimately shamed

Conventional wisdom is clear that the next Congress has a considerable likelihood of being a Republican Congress. That same consensus also holds that if the GOP does indeed take control, the next two years will be marked by confrontation with the White House and even less actual legislative action than the present Congress has accomplished. To be fair, there is some compelling logic behind these conclusions. President Obama has clearly opted out of the role of governing through legislation. He has become the most defensive president since at least World War II, blaming the Congress not just for all the ills of the

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that

Thanks to our friends at Washington Free Beacon, you’ll never have to watch a Barack Obama speech again. Reason being, this 76-second video shows you everything he’s going to say. He will: Tell you it’s great to be back in whatever town he’s in. Tell you to have a seat – twice. Appreciate the introduction. Love you back. Recommend building more roads and bridges. Say the economy grows from the middle out. Say the wealthy have to “pay their fair share.” Blame Republicans in Congress for everything. Encourage you to vote rather than boo.
