Food allergy discrimination
fight -- Justice Department
says set my gluten free

Fox News, by Hans von Spakovsky

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2013 12:39:52 PM

Back in the 1960s, there was real discrimination in American colleges. At places like the University of Mississippi, students were threatened, assaulted, and arrested for demanding equal rights. The U.S. Justice Department (with just a handful of lawyers) fought hard, serious battles to stop these civil rights abuses. Today, with a staff of 800 and a 2012 appropriation of $145 million, the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is suing universities over the food they do, and do not, serve in student cafeterias. I kid you not. Spearheading the drive against dietary “discrimination” is Thomas Perez,

Comments:
This is the most corrupt, incompetent, radical DOJ in the history of our country. Thomas Perez is a radical moron. You would think they have more important things to do. All they do is cause chaos and upheaval.

Oh, the dangers of wanton litigation. This is an excellent example of why nations have limited life spans. They eventually strangle themselves to death through their own laws.

Extortion is the specialty of this adminstration.

Rules are made to provide campaign fund raising opportunities and reward friends, punish enemies. Waiver anyone? They´re not free. Tweak the regulation? Sure, pal,let me check what you donated recently.

Something fishy. Did students actually complain? Were there requests that were flat out turned down? I can´t imagine a cooking staff that would fail to rise to such a challenge on their own if they were asked. No, this feels a little more like the camel´s nose under the tent - leading the way to demand halal foods and banning pork.

Dietary “discrimination”? Honestly? Ok lambast me at will! Celiac disease is real but it is not as widespread as some would like us to believe! Quite a few people put themselves on GF diets and never bother to find out if the are simply sensitive to wheat or some other food (like a food additive). They do it because it is a FAD to be ‘special’.

Obamacare Enrollment Down 18% in Feb;
HHS: ´We Don´t Think We Had a Decline´

In a conference call with reporters on Tuesday afternoon, Health and Human Services officials said February was a "short month," and that may explain why more people enrolled in Obamacare in January than signed up in February. But don´t call the 943,000 February sign-ups a decline from January´s 1.146 million! The 203,000 fewer people who enrolled in Obamcare in February than in January was a drop of 17.7 percent.

It seems like the Democratic slumber party last Monday about climate change was a waste of time as most Americans don´t really care about the issue, according to a new Gallup poll. Then again, politicians wasting time is a hallmark characteristic of Washington D.C. Additionally, access to affordable energy is more of a top priority for Americans than tackling climate change. More than two-thirds (67%) say they worry about the availability/affordability of energy, while less than half (49%) worry about climate change. Out of 15 issues, only 24% of Americans care a great deal about climate change, with an additional 25% caring

The Air Force Academy removed a Bible verse posted on a cadet´s whiteboard after it determined the posting had offended other cadets, a spokesman for the academy said. The cadet wrote the passage on the whiteboard posted outside his room. "I have been crucified with Christ therefore I no longer live, but Christ lives in me," the verse from Galatians read. Mikey Weinstein, director of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, told me 29 cadets and four faculty and staff members contacted his organization to complain about the Christian passage.

Dartmouth Caves to Student Threats

Having been threatened with “physical action” by an unknown number of anonymous students if it did not respond to a list of more than 120 demands, the Dartmouth administration promptly surrendered last week and is planning on spending at least $31 million to satisfy the students’ will. College President Phil Hanlon and Provost Martin Wybourne made a statement last Thursday in response to the so-called “Freedom Budget” — the eight-page letter and list of demands made by the anonymous students – saying, “Diversity is one of the cornerstones of our academic community and, like you, we want Dartmouth to be

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican

Hundreds of new federal rules and regulations and those on the books for years are now under review and may be junked under a “look-back” program President Obama created to offer businesses relief from costly and burdensome rules that just don´t work. Office of Management and Budget Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell said that more than 500 regulations are being reviewed and reconsidered. She said the program is “something that has never happened before, which is called ?regulatory look-back,´ e.g. what can you undo versus what can you add.” After regulations are tried out, she said agencies and departments are asked, “Can you

President Obama, on a fundraising field trip to New York City on Tuesday, stopped in at a Gap on 42nd Street to shop for his wife and daughters, confidently telling those around him, "I think the ladies will be impressed by my style sense.” But given a choice to be stylish or prudish, he chose the latter, rejecting offerings of colorful V-neck sweaters for Sasha and Malia, according to the press pool report of the shop-op. "I´m worried the V-neck is going to slip,” the president and dad said. He settled on a gray and white striped and a bright coral

Union leaders joined with the nation’s largest oil and gas lobby on Tuesday to demand that President Obama approve the Keystone XL pipeline. Labor leaders have long backed the pipeline, arguing it would create thousands of construction jobs and boost the economy. But many of them have been muted in their criticism of President Obama, for fear of opening a rift with the White House over the controversial project. That seemed to change on Tuesday, as the presidents of building trade unions linked the delay of Keystone to broader anger at the administration within the labor movement. "Our anger doesn´t

The White House on Tuesday defended President Obama´s appearance on a comedy talk show to pitch Obamacare, saying it was the “right call” to reach more Americans. Obama appeared on “Between Two Ferns” a mock online talk show hosted by comedian Zach Galifianakis. The segment featured Obama and Galifianakis trading insults and the president trying to deliver serious answers to many of the host’s humorously misinformed questions. Some critics said that Obama’s appearance on the unconventional talk show was not appropriate for a sitting president. White House press secretary Jay Carney said the interview

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”?
