Michelle Obama takes credit for
´cultural shift´ in US eating habits

The Hill (Washington D.C.), by Emily Goodin

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 9/6/2013 4:31:24 PM

Michelle Obama credited her anti-obesity program with bringing about a "cultural shift" in the way Americans eat. "Make no mistake about it. We are changing the conversation in this country. We are creating a cultural shift on how we live and eat. And our efforts are having an impact on our children´s lives." The first lady touted the success of her Let´s Move anti-obesity program during a visit on Friday to Orr Elementary School in Washington, D.C. Obama said when she first began her signature initiative, she couldn´t imagine a time when fast-food commercials advertised for breakfast sandwiches made with egg whites. And

I had to go to the doctor today and when I walked into the waiting room I saw that the overhead TV was tuned to Rachael Ray (gag) who is enough to make anyone barf. Then it got worse. She announced that big Moochelle would be her guest for the entire show along with a bunch of school kids.

What´s interesting is what followed after I said loudly, "I can´t stand to look at her and watch her lie to the nation...I´ve already had enough "Obama" today to last two lifetimes. I´d listened to the Zippy as I was driving to the doctor and had to concentrate to not driven into a ditch listening to him lie and ramble incoherently to the world from St. Petersburg, Russia. He couldn´t complete sentences or remember even rudimentary basics.

There were 12 people in the waiting room and every one was nodding his or her head—several chimed in with statements like what a jerk, he´s the biggest liar alive, can you believe this SOB is president? One man got a big laugh when he looked up at the incredible hulk and said that she was God´s revenge for having given us Obama.

I have never seen the Rachael Ray Show and never will again. The dumb woman is a rasping sycophant who made a complete fool out of herself turning a cartwheel and being so excited that she spit on Mooch when she talked. Then again, it could have been worse…she could have done a cartwheel? I´m still not over the buff armed big one dropping to the floor in Africa and doing pushups?

What an ego! Hers is almost as big as her husbands. Did someone ask her about the schools who are doing away with the federal guidelines for lunches. The kids aren´t eating them and most of the "food" ends up in the trash cans. So in order to save money, they are going back to what works. I can´t wait for these three years to be over. I just hope her husbands ego doesn´t start a war and we will lose many of our kids in a foreign land.

If reports of student reactions to (Michelle) Obama food are correct, there are record amounts of uneaten, unloved food being shoveled off plates and into the trashbins at government schools. Michelle, with her three foot wide caboose, is as bad a spokesman for healthy food as Al Gore is for keeping a diminutive (birdlike) carbon footprint, when Al is Big Bird himself. Michelle is a cross between an ostrich and a manatee. School children absolutely hate the food she is trying to force down their throats. Go away, scowling Ogrewoman!

This was a challenge, but I compared former pictures of Moose and Oprah with current ones and scientifically proved that each has gained a battle-axe across the beam, equal to at least 50 ponds of lying, expanding meat.

Not my fault, I used environmental science and Al Gore logarithms to prove the point.

Boy, and I thought I had done it, not Michelle. Just because I gave up on meat (I´ve always hated the taste), and started eating lots of fruit and vegetables, and lost 30 lbs. Just because I make my own juice, and hardly ever eat fast food (can´t afford it anyhow), I thought it was a life change I had decided on. I guess I was wrong.

"Tell a lie often enough" obamas.

The cultural shift is to McDonalds and their dollar menu.

Fresh salad greens from the food bank or home gardens.

Ys Michelle has caused some changes. Change in how the school kids and how power can be weilded against the will of the people. Now to permanently attach the D label to her in the minds of the kids.

Always vote GOP because the corrupt media will watch them like vultures and pursue like hawks. Teach that fact to the children, hunger games participants in waiting.

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

Hillary Clinton´s upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of State, now has a name: Hard Choices. Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used.

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch. They shouldn’t have been. Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions. It’s not controversial that the Secret Service and the Bureau of Prisons have them.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” Thursday, turning up the rhetorical heat on the already tense situation at the Nevada cattle operation. “Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Mr. Reid in remarks at a luncheon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which sponsored the event. “… I repeat: What went on up there was domestic terrorism.” The Nevada Democrat was referring to the hundreds of Bundy backers — some armed, some from out of state — who congregated at the ranch last week in

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012

Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E.
