~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
A petition from an Arlington, Texas man, launched Nov. 9 via the Obama White House website’s “We the People” tool, had more than 58,000 signatures. That’s more than twice the 25,000 it had Monday morning, a number required to trigger an automatic White House review, according to the administration’s own published rules.
A similar petition from a Louisiana native crossed the 25,000 threshold as Monday drew to a close on the East Coast.
Launched Nov. 7, the day after Obama won re-election, the Pelican State’s spark set off an Internet-driven cascade of disaffected tea partiers and other conservatives looking — as one petition organizer told The Daily Caller via a ‘direct message’ on Twitter — ‘just to do something, anything, to show we’re not going away quietly….
“…Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it’s not pleasing students.
Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market – for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to SouthCoastToday.com.
Nancy Carvalho, director of food services for New Bedford Public Schools, was quoted as saying that hummus and black bean salads have been tough sells in elementary cafeterias. That means even smaller children are going through the day fighting hunger pains, which can never be considered a good thing.
One government official tried to put the blame on the students….”
There is, of course, no shortage of hypocrisy wherein Michelle “do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do” Obama’s #MichelleOsSchoolLunchMenu is concerned in that:
(a) You would not feed that crap to a dog (no offense to our canine buddies),
(b) While the Obamas would not feed the #MichelleOsSchoolLunchMenu to their daughters, Sasha and Malia, it has been in the eyes of these elitists, deemed sufficient enough for everyone else’s children; and finally,
(c) The Sidwell School menu (copy below) is nothing like the #MichelleOsSchoolLunchMenu. In other words, Sasha and Malia’s school lunch is far more superior lunch than the lunch that their mother has regulated for the digestion of students across America.
Compiled below is a rather sizable example of tweets that illustrate in essence the strong opposition of the American people to tyranny of the nanny state’s attempts to force feed our children that which all find repulsive. (Hashtags #BrownBagginIt and #MichelleOsSchoolLunchMenu.)
The “do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do” Obamas have one hell of a scheme going on. The food wreaks, the costs have increased yet according to out of touch Progressives, it’s not the menu or the food that is at fault but the children.
“…From my perspective, the number one greatest national security threat that we have is obesity,; Oz asked the first lady in an interview broadcast Wednesday. ‘Do you ever think about it that way?’
Well absolutely,’ Obama replied. ‘Shocking information, I do a lot of work with military families, and spend a lot of time on military bases and the the number one thing that prevents young people from the ages of 17 to 24 qualifying for the military is obesity….”
Michelle “All this for a flag” Obama’s disdain for our country and our military negates her right to address the service of young people in our military.
It is because of their ideology and disdain for all things American, that the “do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do” Obamas would never sanction their daughters serving in the U. S. military, of that we can be sure.
Moving on, let us not get it twisted, the Obama’s collectivist agenda in lieu of freedom, individualism, personal responsibility along with historical revisionism as practiced by Progressives and America’s children growing up illiterate, indoctrinated and government servants remain a far more superior threat to our nation and its future than obesity. Also keeping in mind, Barack’s ineptitude, acts of treason and repetitive failure to attend daily intelligence briefings.
Camarada Michelle’s schema to compel #MichelleOsSchoolLunchMenu down the throats of students across America under the guise of it being for their own good is backfiring badly. The menu and the hypocrisy are not lost on students or their parents, all of whom are refusing to be a pawn in MO’s moneymaking scheme, all of whom are making their voices heard. H/t Twitchy.
Students, parents, Americans in general are sounding off via social media networks such as , Facebook, YouTube (video above) and Twitter.
Regardless of the propaganda espoused by spin masters, we the people will not allow an overbearing government to dictate to our children or us.
MUKWONAGO, Wis. – Michelle Obama and the federal government have altered the federally-funded school lunch menu to make sure students don’t ingest too many calories over the course of the day.But many students at Mukwonago (Wisconsin) High School say the new memo leaves them feeling hungry. They say a ‘once-size-fits-all’ menu doesn’t fit them very well at all.
On Monday, 70 percent of the 830 students boycotted cafeteria food to register their displeasure. About half of all middle school students did the same thing.
‘A freshman girl who weights 100 pounds can eat this lunch and feel completely full, maybe even a little bloated,’ Joey Bougneit, a Mukwonago senior, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel….
Am I the only parent who thinks that the above photo of the lunch served to students in Wisconsin looks disgusting.
You can bet that the children of Commie wench, Michelle Obama, eats better than the crap they serve in schools around the nation.

I rest my case.
Regardless of how indoctrinated public school children are or will be, one thing remains certain. They are adamant about what they will and will not put in their stomachs and no amount of government legislation or love of Obama can change that.
As for the parents of these students, tell the NANNY STATE Commie wench to go to hell. H/t Grumpy Opinions.
“…Reason TV talked with Democratic delegates and supporters at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte and found that most were on board with the party’s strong pro-choice stance. But when pressed to talk about whether or not they were pro-choice in areas of human activity beyond abortion, delegates and supporters seemed less certain and, at times, outright hostile to the notion of increased choice….”
What hypocrites. In other words, these useful idiots are pro-choice murdering babies in the womb but against an adult eating ten meals a day and drinking Big Gulps because people murdering innocent babies are informed and the rest of the world is not.
