lunch programI’m surprised that Michelle Lunch Program Obama hadn’t issued a proclamation, “If you like your nutrition plan, you can keep your nutrition plan.”

Because one of her first acts as First Lady was to serve America’s school children crap.

That’s why schools had to go BACK to “junk meals.” And apparently they get to keep them. As reported in Medical Daily:

In a reversal, the Obama administration on Thursday announced they would permanently relax [emphasis added] unpopular nutrition rules for the federal school lunch program.

The rules were intended [emphasis added] to fight childhood obesity by lowering calories and portion sizes, but proved wildly unpopular with students and parents throughout the country.

Let’s wait to see what the definition of “relax” is. And I love that Liberals always have programs that “intend” to do the things that they never accomplish. In Michelle Obama’s case, her “get fit” school lunch program cut down on obesity, while increasing anorexia, because the kids refused to eat it!

“Earlier this school year, USDA made a commitment to school nutrition professionals that we would make the meat and grain flexibility permanent and provide needed stability for long-term planning. We have delivered on that promise,” Agriculture Undersecretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services Kevin Concannon said.

Nice try by Concannon to help Michelle Obama save face.

Like her husband has done with healthcare, Michelle Obama has meddled where none was needed. Kids were eating fine. The fact that kids are fat in America is a testament to how well-fed they are.

Liberal elitists must tinker, as a meth head tweaks. They break things in such a way that what they break is never the same again. In the case of food, they blame fast-food, junk food, and about everything else, but they won’t blame the group they should, which is the kids’ parents!

It’s not foods’ fault for fat kids. It’s parents who allow them to over-indulge. Believe it or not, you can survive on McDonald’s and you can do it without getting fat. Who is to say what food is better. I’d like to see some elitist puke eat only $100 an ounce caviar.

How much money have we spent changing the program, only to essentially change it back to what worked to begin with. If you’ve never had Kobe beef, you won’t miss it. Most poor kids are happy to eat, and they were surviving, dare I say thriving before they even knew who Michelle Obama was.

Government is in the business of keeping busy…keeping busy spending our money. These bureaucrats should mind their own business, and get their hands out of the pockets of taxpaying American citizens.

 

 

 

It's FINALLY HERE!
Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

"In actuality, black people will go to substandard hospitals, wait in long lines behind illegal immigrants, and be treated like non-citizens, as there simply won’t be enough healthcare to go around. There will be the occasional lucky few who will receive treatment, and we will parade them around like championship rings, thus continuing the ruse. As you can see, we’ve left out nothing. We touch more on this in Chapter 10: Promise Everything, Deliver Nothing. If for some reason we happen to run out of blacks, we will be able to apply our trade to the Mexicans with little disruptions. Plans are already underway for our next edition in this “How To” series: How to be a Latino "Race Pimp for Fun and Profit…even if you’re Illegal."

        Where have you been all of my life? I’ve been posting similar sentiment for years. To wit:
        “Friends, fellow veterans, all patriots, defenders of the second amendment. If you feel as I do, and the Second Amendment is sacrosanct to you. We need to stand together, and defy the
        tyrant whose posing as President of the United States of America.
        He must be STOPPED! Barack Insane Obama is acting as a dictator, and OUR elected legislators, acting as placeholders, are kowtowing to his every whim. Unless they are looking for the American Revolution Redux, they need to get of their collective asses, and stop the bastard before we no longer recognize OUR grand republic as the U.S.A. we grew up in, and the U.S.A. we want for OUR children to inherit. They’ve already been exposed to a debt burden that our children’s, children’s, children will find as an obstacle to their pursuit of Life,Liberty and Happiness”.

    There are programs at schools to deal with obesity. They are called recess. How does a child learn, when they are starving? Obesity at school is not their top priority. That is parents job. Moochelle lost her law liscence because she committed fraud.

    • Pam Dunn

      NOT any more, I think they ALL cancelled the recess so that they have time to teach sex education to 2nd graders and Liberal BS to ALL the other grades.

      • Gina Yarber

        True. the cancelled recesses, even though there are studies that show that kids learn better when they have them. . . but then they’ve cut music classes when studies show that kids who study music do better in math and science. . . That’s IT! They don’t REALLY want our kids to learn. They want to force feed them answers to standardized tests and their propaganda instead of teaching them to learn and figure things out for themselves.

      • msueh

        I’m not understanding this train of thought. Where – which states – have ALL canceled recess? Not in my school district, in WA. Granted, I don’t like a lot going on (Common Core, anyone?), but there certainly is PE, Gym, recess here. Not 4 years, as when I graduated, just 2, but this is better than nothing.

      • jb80538

        There is no reason it still shouldn’t be required!

        • Bouncerquinn

          They wouldn’t let my son have physical education his sophomore through senior years, because he needed required classes and there were limited spots available. They held all those spots for football, soccer and bball players so they would have easy classes to keep their GPA high enough to participate.
          Calisthenics is a very good way to not only keep physically fit, but is good for AD/HD and depression.
          I was allowed to take PE two hours in my junior year and one hour my senior year. It was required through your sophomore year.

      • RevG

        Same here we had a Class for an hour every day. We ran on a track, cross country, played basket ball, football, baseball ,gymnastics, climbed ropes, what ever the coaches wanted to do.

    With that said….MOO COW MOOOOOCHELLE and the Government need to get out of the busines of telling people what to eat…..If her BROAD CABOOSE is any indication…maybe she needs to give up her BUCKETS OF HOT WINGS…

    • ArmedTXMomma

      I respectfully disagree. My 9 year old drinks 2-3 glasses of milk every day plus we carefully shop for snacks and juices that are low in sugar. He eats vegetables pretty regularly but maybe not as often as we would like. He loves beef, chicken and seafood. To top it off, we let him participate in any activity he wants to try whether it’s a sport or music or whatever. My kid is definitely not obese. He’s a kid doing kid stuff. And I’m the parent doing MY job which is making sure he eats as healthy as possible and gets plenty of exercise. My child’s nutritional choices are NOT the responsibility of corporate America nor anyone else but me.

  • Mr Keith Charles Johnson

    Ronald Reagan said it best. If only certain people would read history books, and take heed. It’s ludicrous for Moochelle to believe that anyone will take her advice on nutrition after seeing her broad behind. I’m the sultan of fat, and I know how to lose weight. I’ve gained and lost thousands of pounds in my lifetime, and it’s not what you eat that makes you fat. It’s how much, how often, and how many calories you burn up verses how many you take in. EXERCISE is how calories are burned. I probably don’t eat much more than “normal” people, but I am sedentary in my lifestyle (too much Facebook), and that causes FAT. Obese children, which I was beginning about age six (6) is a matter of nurturing. My parents weren’t overbearing about my eating habits. They tried, but were not authoritarians when it came to my girth control or eating habits. There really wasn’t what could be called “fast food” in Rockford, IL until the 1960’s, and by then I already had the nickname of “Roundy”, which had nothing whatsoever to do with McDonald’s. People make themselves fat, not fast food restaurants.

    Mr Jackson. I need some clarification. When we were children we played outside all day after school and on weekends, then at school we either had recess or PE. or some outside recreational activity ( that was during Neanderthal times) Today not only do they not play outside but in some communities children playing outside without parental supervision is considered child abuse, then when they go to school P.E. has been removed from their curriculum. There is a real bad stack of problems here.

  • Rene Shepard

    Her tinkering aside, our kids are not just fat because they are eating well. They are fat because they are eating junk and the government has no business in the school lunch program except to give schools money for the program. How it’s implemented should be up to the parents and the schools. There are foods that are normal for the NE that are not normal to the SW. and vice versa. Jamie Oliver has shown how government intervention where they are putting sugar and crap into school lunch supplies have had dramatic affects on childhood obesity. This whole damn thing is obscene.

    Sure it’s the parents fault, but the schools are just as much to blame. They no longer allow kids to run around at recess, can’t play chase, can’t race, can’t play anything with a ball. basically the kids aren’t allowed to do anything where they might get hurt our be bullied.
    Then we have to spend millions of $ on ad campaigns (Play 60) to get the kids to run around and play for an hour.

  • Rev TJ Conwell

  • Laura Wright

    Society should be held accountable, above all. It encourages inactivity and the current pricing systems make most healthy food too expensive, while punishing those who exhibit the inevitable results. You can buy the ingredients for a salad and feed your family today, or use the same amount of money to feed your family for a week on preprocessed, prepackaged foods. Food prices are primarily responsible for obesity. Also, I know several kids who developed obesity, not because of poor parents, but because of illness or medication. Had nothing to do with food at all. I am tired of blame. We have enough of that going around. Blame is a misuse of time and resources. Address the entire spectrum of causes, not just one or two, or the problem will never be fixed.

    • Seola

      I have yet to find anyone to prove this. I feed my family meals from scratch far, far, far cheaper than any other method of food. Sure, I buy meat when it’s on sale instead of deciding what I want to eat first THEN buying it. When it’s 2 for 1 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about once a quarter sale) I stock up and freeze it. In fact, we’ve largely cut red meat just because we find we like chicken better. I buy fresh produce, fresh herbs and spices as needed and for a family of 6, I can feed them 3 fresh meals (including doubling recipes to have leftovers for lunches) a week on a mere $60. That’s a total of 36 meals usually. Plus, I cut off the tenders from the breasts – which makes chicken fingers some other day. The only boxed staple in this house is Kraft Mac N Cheese – aka kid crack.

      • Laura Wright

        Everyone should certainly live where you do because I’ve never encountered anything like that here in VA. I know where I live that by the time you buy just the staples necessary to make your food from scratch, you’ve spent a small fortune. A package of Hamburger Helper is $2, whereas just a small bag of of couscous is $9. Olive oil is around $6, or regular vegetable oil is about $3. I’m sure people who live where you do have an easy time, but you aren’t thinking of those who don’t live in your area. Just because you evidently have it easy doesn’t mean everyone else does. Most people do not have access to big freezers, canning equipment, or most of the things you mentioned. If they did, they would certainly use them. But, even if we’re going to can, we’ll need jars, lids, seals, not to mention the necessary preservatives or waxes, which is quite a cost in itself. That doesn’t even take into consideration the canning devices. Until we shed this single-mindedness and think beyond our own roof, we won’t improve. It isn’t a competition or a game. I find that hard to believe. I’ve yet to meet anyone who’s grocery bill for a week is just $60, even those who are single and have no kids must spend more than that. I think my parent’s grocery bill was $60 a week in 1984. We can also go restaurant or fast food with it just as easily. You can buy a salad with no drink for the same price as a whole hamburger meal with both a drink and side dish. It’s a reflection of what awaits at the grocery store. You can pretend it’s as easy as bad parenting or poor food choices, if that works for you, but honestly it’s the same narrow-minded schlock we’ve heard for decades. And it’s led us right to where we are today.

        • CShah

          Well…your perspective isn’t 100% correct either. There are always ways to save and often it means something as simple as raising your family eating lentil soups and beans and rice more often than hamburgers. The former are cheap and can be made flavorful. My kids love them…I made sure of it by making those things from the time they were small.
          Now…we all know people too lazy or dumb to do these things…but that doesn’t mean it is not possible.

          • Laura Wright

            True, I was speaking in a general sense. We all know about cutting costs and trimming the frivolities, but there needs to be such attention to affordability and it’s never given. It’s always blamed on parents, school, junk food, fast food, things like that. Perhaps we need to relax restrictions on how much farmers can produce, or encourage more people to go into agriculture, I don’t know. I just know that we’ve devoted decades to talking about eating right, and at the same time, we’ve made it very difficult for people to do that. Somehow, foods that require millions of dollars in machinery and maintenance is cheaper than what you just pull out of the ground. It makes absolutely no sense.

      • Amy Ramey

        So, you prepare 36 meals for $60? How? I am very curious?

    • Seola

      Also, the kids always have fruit with breakfast (usually a banana) and lunch (apples or grapes). I buy what is generally in season so it’s cheaper than buying exotic fruits or for example strawberries in December, but I stock up on them in February/March for the winter stock, and even learned how to can them so my jelly/jam is cheaper. Granted, that’s not “quick and easy” to can but as someone who is a mother to 4, in college for my masters, while my husband is in college for HIS masters and works full-time, PLUS splitting my time between Little League as well… if I can find the time, so can most anyone else. Canning takes little cost (for preserves, you only need a stock pot and the jars) and maybe a few hours of my time on a Saturday.

    • Sweets

      I don’t buy your statement that it is cheaper to feed a family on preprocessed, prepackaged foods. After my divorce, my daughter and I decided we needed to eat more healthy and avoided the preprocessed, prepackaged foods. With careful shopping and cooking at home we were able to spend the same amount at the store and were eating much better food. A large part of the problem with obesity, whether in children or adults, is the sedantary lifestyle so many of us have. A “get up and move” movement would have been better than focusing the blame on “junk food” and overeating.

    • fedup

      Let’s start with getting the Federal Government out of the kitchen. Let’s get people working again so they can afford the food that they would like to eat and let’s get the kids more exercise.

      Did this obesity start when Mom had to get a job and couldn’t start dinner at 3 or 4 o’clock, so that it would be ready at 5 or 6?

  • KatrinaWB

    Stupidity knows no bounds.

  • Jimmy

    The very worse thing about Mooch’s proclamation is that kids could no longer bring to school the lunches their parents packed for them. You know this country is in trouble when the Government takes ownership of our children over the parents.

    • fedup

      It adds to the list of outrageous thing this pair have done. And with almost 3 years to go and no political considerations for reelection, I’m afraid it will only get worse. Many mild mannered citizens are becoming very radicalized. Hail Obama the “Healer”, the “Post Racial” President, the “Unifier”. What a snow job he pulled off. Makes Bernie Maddoff jealous.

  • dizzyedge

    Damage is already done. Many districts were already forced to increase the price of lunches even if they didn’t want to. There is no chance those prices will come down, even after the rules are ‘relaxed’. Many also had to spend hundred of thousands to millions of dollars in order to comply with the new rules.
    This buttclown of a woman should be flogged in public.

    • fedup

      I’d like to film the flogging – for the next busybody to see what happens when you but into a local (like schools) institution.

  • Sweets

    Instead of coming up with unrealistic “calorie guides” and “portion sizes”. Why don’t schools just serve fresh fruits and vegetables instead of the constant canned crap. If kids are given a choice they usually chose fresh over canned. Get PE back into the school day on a daily basis and put recess back into the daily schedule in elementary school. This may mean that the school day/year should be lengthened but that’s not such a bad thing either.

  • Laura

    I say go fresh, even put a garden that the kids have to work! Excerise is excerise right? PE is great so is RECESS give those neurons a rest from all the BS indoctornation they get. Real answer- give kids a heavy duty dose of Constitution Classes, PUT prayer back in schools, and the 10 Commandments and maybe all the school violence will STOP!!! You think??? Yes, feed them well body, mind and spirit. And maybe we won’t have to build more prisions and welfare will disppear!!!

    • athrillofhope

      You forget that the entire goal of the Marxist conspiracy is the de-populate the earth through any means possible: abortion, gang violence incited by racial discord, deny healthcare by destroying the finest healthcare delivery system the world has ever known, controlling what we eat, when we eat it, and whether or not we even get to eat …

    • Mark

      How do you manage to advocate teaching the Constitution and the Ten Commandments/school prayer in the same paragraph? The latter have no place in public schools, nor should they be used to influence kids, against their will, in any way. You should try reading the Constitution before trying to force feed the Ten Commandments on other peoples children. By the way, countries that have less religion, have less crime, lower incarceration rates and less teen pregnancy, to name a few.

      • Lady Patriot

        What a bunch of propaganda BS! In what way would it harm children to learn the Ten Commandments? How would prayer in school harm children? Children are influenced by life every day in some way. It is so much better if the influence is positive rather than negative, don’t ya think?

        • Mark

          The Ten Commandments can be taught, in the proper context, as literature. The first 4 are completely irrelevant. They are the words of a petty, jealous, vindictive, man made god, for which there is no reason to believe. The other 6 are common mores of most societies and don’t need to be cloaked in religion.

          Don’t you find it contradictory that the same “God”, who gave us the Ten Commandments, also condones slavery and genocide. You know what the penalty for breaking the 4th commandment is? I guess I fail to see the positive message there.

          Pray all you like, to whoever you like, but don’t force others, or their children, to share in your silly mythology.

          • Guest

            Just curious, since you acknowledge the Ten Commandments, where do you think they came from?

          • Mark

            What are you curious about? Of course, I acknowledge them. They’re from a book of fairy tales called The Bible. What a foolish question.

          • Guest

            And yet you observe them, like every generation has for thousands of years.

          • Mark

            Observe what? The Bible didn’t create the idea that murder, stealing and lying were bad. Why do you people think everything came from The Bible. Most of the world was not exposed to The Bible until the 15th – 17th centuries. Do you really think that all these societies were living without laws or any moral code? Try reading some non-fiction for a change.

          • Guest

            With each post you reveal more and more ignorance. The 10 commandments, which are introduced in the Torah’s book of Exodus, predates by at least two millenia the 15-17 century.

            So exactly how did you first learn that those were bad?

          • Loyal

            “Condones slavery” Absolutely not, The Bible talks about a lot of things, but that’s not condoning. It mentions more than one wife, but the Bible doesn’t condone it. When We read the Bible or anything We need to read more than one verse (Bible), or one sentence, lest We become confused.

          • Mark

            It absolutely does, particularly Leviticus. There are always Bible apologists and those that want to cherry pick what to take literally, and what is meant to be allegory. There is no denying the fact that, in various places in The Bible, it not only condones, but often endorses, genocide, slavery, murder and a host of other heinous acts.

          • Guest

            You quote Leviticus like you know what you’re talking about. Those of us who know the context in which Leviticus was written know you do not. The more you post, the more you show you are uninformed and purely opinionated. Which is fine, we’ll accept your posts as pure opinion, nothing more. Have a nice day. Know this, one day we’ll both know who’s right. If I’m wrong, no big deal. If you are, it’ll be a monumental big deal, for you. Pretty arrogant to make a bet like that.

          • Mark

            I didn’t quote Leviticus, I referenced it. Big difference. You can hide behind context all you want, there is no getting around the fact that The Bible says it’s ok to deal in slavery.

            Of course it’s my opinion, just like its only yours. You have nothing substantial to support your case.

            I don’t worry about being wrong. I have no interest in a god that would judge me based on my beliefs, instead of my deeds.

          • Guest

            Arrogant AND foolish. Dangerous combo. The man who owns Heaven put out the rules for entry in that book the Bible that you call a fairy tale.. Hopefully some day you’ll realize the folly you’re living under. Not my job to convince you you’re wrong, only to tell you you are.

          • Mark

            You can’t convince me, because you have nothing to offer, but your faith. If that works for you, fine. Blind faith doesn’t work for me, and I worry about those, for whom it does work.

            So nice of you, but Why are you worried? And honestly, I truly doubt you are. You do not convey the tone of someone who cares about anyone.

          • Guest

            No question, I can’t convince you. And to repeat, not my job. One day you will be convinced, I just hope you are before you reach the point of no return.

            What are you worried for us about?

          • fedup

            So just how do you judge your deeds without some reference to the 10 Commandments? If 10 is too many for you why not

            just cut it down to a couple of things Jesus said. Don’t forget your Creator and follow the Golden Rule. Do you have a problem with those?

          • Guest

            Then quote Leviticus chapter and verse where it condones slavery. And all the other “heinous acts.”

          • Mark

            Again, I’m not going to do everyone’s homework for them. You’re the Bible thumper, not me. A simple google search on slavery in the bible will get you where you need to go.

            You said “it absolutely does” — that implies you know exactly that it does. So “absolutely” quote us where it does. You made a simple statement, give simple proof. C’mon, man, what’s so hard about a simple statement?

          • douglasankele@yahoo.com

            Fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, please remember that the word of God states, “that the word is foolishness to those who are perishing.” The lost can’t discern spiritual matters according to God’s word, therefore, trying to convince them through reason is pointless. They must be informed of their own sinful, selfish nature by the Ten Commandments. It’s ironic how the lost can make statements about so called man made religion based on the Bible, but fail to expound on where we got our morals, laws, conscience from, not to mention, who named the animals? You always have to come back to the Bible for the answer, it’s found nowhere else.

          • Mark

            That’s almost too ridiculous to deserve a reply. Religion is so inherently arrogant. Law, morals, and yes, even animals were around long before a group of nomadic shepherds came up with The Bible.

            By this assertion, you’re also claiming that societies that were not exposed to The Bible, which was most of the world, were incapable of creating laws and creating a moral code to live by. How incredibly ignorant and stupid!

          • douglasankele@yahoo.com

            Mark, God’s word is awesome, living, powerful, sharper than any two edge sword. You will find absolute truth nowhere else. God is calling you, open your heart to his calling, before it’s to late. No one knows their final day on earth, yours could be today. I lived in the desert of this life for 40 years before coming to Christ 13 years ago. Being a Christian doesn’t mean it’s a perfect life, but it brings peace, and the knowing that when I die, I get to rid myself of this fallen world for eternity and enter into Heaven. Below is a passage from Romans, it’s very clear cut in it’s message. God bless.

            God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness – Romans 1:18-32

            18 For
            the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
            unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and
            changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like
            corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

            24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who
            exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the
            creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

            26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise
            also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their
            lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and
            receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

            28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful; 32 who,
            knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such
            things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of
            those who practice them.

            The Ten Commandments are more than literature. They are the basis for which we live moral, ethical, decent lives–yes, even the first 4! All the laws in this land including the Constitution was based on the Ten Commandments. Without the Ten Commandments, your life would be miserable, my friend. The problem with atheists like you are that they can’t think outside the box, they are destined to live in a 3-dimensional world until they die…and go to HELL.

            No, they are not. Read a damn history book! I should think outside the box? You should crawl out from under the box.

          • Guest

            Actually the laws are based on the 10 Commandments, and much to your dismay (as well as enlightenment), the early laws of THIS country were based ON THE BIBLE. A legislator who proposed a law was required to cite Scripture to prove that the proposed law with in accordance with the Bible. eh, your comment about “read a damn history book” seems to be good advice. You should. (I’ve been waiting for you to make this statement so I could give this response to you. You may think you’re doing a good job defending your opinion, but I’m pretty sure you’re learning things you never learned in school, or if you did, you forgot them. And I’m only too happy to educate you. No charge.)

        I agree with you regarding “force feeding” the Ten Commandments on other peoples’ children, if the schools wouldn’t force feed the study of Islam on them as well. Sadly, not the case.

        Please cite statistics that support your last sentence.

        • Mark

          I don’t think Islam is being forced on kids. I have two kids in public school and have heard nothing about Islam. Religion is discussed only as a part of, what we used to call, social studies. If this is happening in your school, you should act on it.

          I do not have a specific site to point you towards. However, if you look up crime rates and teen birth rates in predominantly secular nations, like Japan, Finland, Sweden, et al, you will see what I’m talking about.

          • Guest

            Seems your very good at insults and giving advice. As far as paying attention, I was merely responding to what you said. Since we’ve established that all you’re spouting is opinion, propaganda is not that much of a stretch.

          • fedup

            The concept of a ‘Creator” is at the very birth of our Nation, in the Declaration of Independence. Our unalienable rights flow from the Nature of our creation, by that Creator. To deny the Creator (whatever you envision the Creator to be) is to deny the basis of the Founders assertion of those rights, Without recognition of a Creator there is only government to bestow, or withhold those rights.
            Recognition of the Creator is not religion. It is a logical necessity. Your individual conception of the Creator, whether a human like form with a flowing white beard, the Cosmic Watchmaker, the magic acorn or the ‘Big Bang’ is up to you.
            The moral precepts contained in the 10 Commandments are in fact the basis for our society. It takes a very thin skinned individual to be outraged at seeing them displayed.

          • Guest

            hmm, for someone “big” on the Constitution, you must be aware that the first amendment was not to keep religion out of schools, but to keep the government out of the churches, right? and please tell us about that “separation of Church and state” thing, I find it so, how shall we say, “mythical.” Oh, it’s not? Then tell me where to find it in the Constitution. And no, I’m not going to wait. I think you’re gonna have a hard time with that chore, Mr Constitution. But you’re right, I’m not too big on the Constitution. Nope, Not a bit.

Suppose that you don’t believe in the Declaration of Independence or the preponderance of thought and papers from our Founding Fathers that this is a Christian Nation; a Bounty from God founded on Christian principles. The Ten Commandments are the corner stone to our rule of Law and our very existence as a Nation.

            How about discussing the 10 Commandments in the historical context of Western Civilization. It is the foundation for our society. The moral precepts are non denominational and should hardly be offensive to human secularists. Atheists are just going to get used to hearing it, nobody will make them follow them But they will be taught that the basis for our laws is (at least was) in the 10 Commandments. Follow the 10 Commandments and stay out of trouble.

      Wasn;t that one of the complaints about her?

      • Sam Houston

        No. The complaints about her was that she bribed schools with Federal money to force bland foods upon our children that they won’t eat. It literally goes straight into the garbage. My kids elementary has instituted snack time in all grades because the kids complained about starving. You can make “fast” and “comfort” foods healthy mainly by making it fresh with fresh and wholesome ingredients. Stay out of the preservatives. I believe that every parent would welcome the gardening idea. Problem is that Common Core won’t allow that. It removed art, choir, band, drama, and cursive writing. A garden class would fall along those lines.

  • Jamie Miranda

    All I have to say is to keep Government out of our kids lunch. Lets try fresh made foods, made right in the school instead of packaged processed dehydrated foods that they generally serve. Lets demand they stay away from the Government sponsored GMO poisoned foods. Let the kids enjoy a delicious lunch and let them fill their bellies on it, and breakfast too for that matter.. I mean after all they have politically correct, brainwashing common core programs to go back to and they are going to need all the energy they can get for that…

    Built the Brooklyn Bridge, Won two World Wars and put a man on the moon without any government agency detailing our school lunch menu. Why change? If kids are fat, take away the Xbox and get them on their bikes. Buy them a baseball bat, a soccer ball, or heaven forbid a football. Ate like a horse growing up, played Lacrosse and Football and never though of having to diet. My mother made good meals that we all loved and they were balanced and nutritious. It took time to actually prepare a good meal, and Moms knew how to do it then. Today many are too lazy and ignorant. That isn’t for the government to correct, it is their own responsibility.

    • Sam Houston

      Exactly correct. Technology is the crux of the problem. They don’t want to do are darn thing anymore, except sit on their buts and play electronics. My Fiancée’s daughter just had to have a horse. She was into it till she found out that you actually had to do a lot of work to care for it. Too much time from her blogs and anime websites. So Queen Moose is saying that are kids eat crap and are fat lazy basterds. She seems to not be on the same page as her husband who is doing his leveled best to force technology down our throats with free cell phones, free broadband internet, requiring iPads, laptops, and internet connections in schools to do that Common Core crap curriculum. Even my 3rd Graded can’t do her homework without the internet because she has to log onto this website to submit her work and do some activities. When the internet drops, it’s holy hell in the household.

  • Recynd

    Is there really no happy medium between the expired Army-surplus slop normally fed to school kids and the low-fat, low-protein cardboard Madame Moo was peddling? I have an idea: keep your kids out of school, and feed ‘em at home.

  • Sam Houston

    When I was in Elementary school in the 70’s, I loved the food. My Mother worked in the cafeteria as a “Lunch Lady” and I would often sit in the big pantry and do school work before school. I watched and even helped prepare the food for cooking, not re-heating. Yes, there was premade food like pizza, chili, fish planks, and burritos. There was also made from scratch entrées, side-dishes, and deserts. That is what my Mom was helping to do. Leftovers ended up at my house for dinner instead of being discarded. High School food in the mid 80’s was not quite the same but there was much more options like a salad bar, a hot food line, and a “junk” food line. It never got old.
    My older kids grew up in the 90’s and the new millennium before Mooszilla took the reins. They ate all that food and were not fat at all. There were not even athletic. I have Children that were born much later. They attend school in the age of Obama. Their growth had been charting dead center norm. Now, a few years later, they are underweight. I can’t even get them to eat the healthy homecooking that I make for them. Mine actually tastes better but they correlate it to that “stuff” at school and won’t touch it. They want nothing by comfort foods and junk. Thanks a lot Queen Moose.

  • billyjshafer

    The reason children are fat is because the parents don’t kick them out of the house to play outside all day; but, instead, buy them all kinds of electronics that they sit around using all day.
