Michelle Obama: ‘Competitive Foods
in School Should Be Limited

Cybercast News Service, by Penny Starr

Original Article

The website promoting First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative to combat childhood obesity advises parents to limit “opportunities for children to purchase competitive foods.” The website warns parents about “competitive food” – food available to children on campus that falls outside of the federally regulated cafeteria food. “Foods and beverages provided through school breakfast, lunch and afterschool snack programs must meet certain nutritional rules to receive federal money,” the website states. “However, kids can purchase non-nutritious foods in place of these meals. Many schools sell foods outside of the USDA school meals–

Yep, starting down that slippery path - the 'solution' to a non-existent problem doesn't work, so they pass more rules and regulations and laws to compel humans to do what they want them to do. And the fluff-headed libtards (but I repeat myself) claim conservatives are coercive - but that's just projection. When do they close the borders to egress and start shooting people who want to escape, as in the soviet union, north korea, china, etc.

They are dangerous people, and the sooner every libtard is gone from this country the better off we'll be.

Tell this woman to stay out of the school lunch kitchen. At first she was annoying, but now she is disgustingly out of line.

Lots of luck, Madam Queen. You are really pushing it now. I can see those kids you've been courting and hugging - the ones you have urged to get their parents and voting age relatives to vote for her hubby - putting pressure on their parents to vote for ABO. Anybody But Obama.

Another exploding cigar for the Obots.

Obviously the woman has some psychological issues with here own obesity. Sadly she is taking them out on innocent children. The childhood obesity crisis is just another manufactured myth to create a sense of crisis and further excuse federal intrusion into our daily lives. Enough! Stop starving innocent children!

I am really getting tired of this homely, wide beamed know it all. Who the hell is she to tell anyone what they can eat!? She has a butt the size of an 18 wheeler and a husband who likes to sneak cigarettes. The two of them like to eat Kobe beef on our tab and Zippy likes his beer and fries. Why don't you worry about your own huge butt and your husband's junk food addiction Moochie?!

It is obvious that she is trying to get her agenda crammed down our throats before they get kicked out of the WH next month. Maybe if she had spent less time on vacations she would have had time to really do something about childhood obesity.

How about she get real serious about this and have her hubby sign an executive order that fat kids can only have dry salad and water for lunch? Or how about an executive order that fat families on food stamps can only buy fruits and veggies but no fats or carbs? Isn't this what she's really aiming for?

The term "competitive foods" troubles me (besides everything else about this idiocy). Is this also a subtle means of informing children that competition is bad?

Working as a volunteer for a food co-op I saw the co-op board vote to add soft white sliced bread to the inventory because the neighborhood (read "food desert") customers refused to buy the healthier breads--they simply didn't like it and didn't want to have to cut the slices. Instead, they bought it at a convenience store a block away. There were other changes to fit neighborhood preferences, one of which was "regular" milk, as opposed to more expensive organic milk. I can't remember what else.

It sounds as if there will be a wide "no-sell zone" around schools. Nobody over 18 will be allowed to buy anything but tofu, tofurkey, plain, fat-free yogurt and other delicacies that many people abhor. I expect to see junk food trucks parked on an ever-widening perimeter and students acting as bootleggers.

So, what we'll have is students who avoid competition, who have minds that circumvent any law (like drug-free zones around schools--same thing to a student) and who bake chocolate chip cookies each night to sell just outside the competitive-food-free zone at school the next day. Don't be surprised if they begin to make bathtub gin too.

What a thoroughly undeveloped sense of consequence is shared by this woman and her spouse.

Why not force food stamp users to buy only healthy food. Let's limit what can be bought with food stamps to vegetables, fruits, and tofu.. Then you will see the obese rate drop in this country and a big drop in food stamp usage.

Since schools seemed charged to churn out as many 'useful idiots' as possible, I'm thinking that the new calorie restriction rules are in place to get the 'UIs' accustomed to very little food so that when they are older and everyone is forced into government controlled bread lines they will be docile and accept the morsels alloted to them without complaint.
Sadly, I am not sure if I'm being sarcastic or not.

GENEVA – Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine. The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the deal the result of a "good day´s work" but emphasized that the words on paper

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
