This week, President Orator told us that if GOP ideas were a food, they’d be a “stinkburger” or “meanwich.” But according to some kids, those look a lot more like items on their school lunch trays.

Many students fled the school lunch lines after Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign brought misery (and miniature portions) to lunchrooms around the country. Others weren’t so lucky.

            Some schools are rejecting kids’ sack lunches (seriously) on the grounds that it may not be nutritious. Can’t fault the kids for that.

          • carmenta

            the sad part is those kids who need these lunches, because whatever, their parents wont or cant provide a sack lunch, and this is all they get??? My kid would have real trouble managing on just that little bit, and he wouldn’t feel like learning much. His temper would be awful too, because there isn’t enough protein there to maintain good blood sugar! I wonder how much of the bad behavior and disciplinary problems in schools would stop if kids weren’t hungry?

            Here’s an inside scoop…I work in a school lunchroom…our food doesn’t look bad like these photos…I’m not sure what company these schools chose to prepare the meals…but they do look sad. The company I work for may not pay well, but the meals seem decent. Daily…kids can choose from fresh apple or orange every day, plus carrots everyday…plus each day a different fresh veggie like cucumber slices, celery or FRESH broccoli. The kitchen manager’s theory and the company is that “if they wouldn’t eat it…we won’t serve it”. Encourage your child’s school district to be careful of what company wins the contract to provide the meals. But on the topic of sack lunches…sorry to say many parents these days must be young and…maybe don’t know any better…but we have seen kids bring candy and fruit rolls ups…and a drink such as a “capri-sun”. …no fruit, no veggies…no sandwich…nothing that I would consider as anything more than a treat. A generation of parents out there did NOT learn how to prepare a nutritious meal. I used to pack a sandwich, an apple and carrots for my kids…with a water bottle. It is not that difficult. Smh

          • David Wilson

            Mary, I’m sorry but you seem like a real know it all douche bag. “Just look at these stupid, evil parents that can’t pack a lunch….why back in my days I was miss Mary Susie Homemaker and I’m just so damn great”…..You sound like a nanny state mom who judges everyone. When my son was in elementary school I packed his lunch everyday and yeah I always threw in a treat besides his meal and sometimes there was soda…big deal! What he got was a shit load better than the crap that most people force on their kids like McDonalds or Taco Hell. Always a sandwich or possibly leftover if we had something good from the night before. Sometimes BBQ or pizza but he always had multiple fruit and veggies in there as well. Yes sometimes we as Americans don’t always eat healthy but I’m sure that most people can pack a lunch without someone pointing a finger or the school banning it. Total shame.

          • floridavet

            My school lunch was pretty much the same everyday during my elementary school days – one baloney & mustard sandwich, and one peanut butter & jelly sandwich. Now, some 65+ years later, I don’t seem to be any worse for wear.

            Celery and cucumber have moderate amounts of vitamin k. There is a method to their madness. Apple or orange for vitamin c, carrots for vitamin a and celery or cucumber for vitamin k.

          • BooBots

            Cucumber?? Are you sure no nutritional value?

          • thetreyman

            at about 45 calories per cucumber, yes. broccoli is much better. 6 calories in a celery stalk, though is does have the vitamin K, broccoli is still a better source and it has more calories. also fruits are still a good source of vitamin K and they give you energy.

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            So you would risk killing someone else’s kid with a peanut allergy? I bet you wouldn’t like it very much if YOUR kid had the potential to DIE from a food allergy and some parent sent that food to the public school your child was expected (and entitled) to attend after a rule was made to not do it.. I wonder if you could afford to give up your job/income to stay home and “home school” your kid from K-12 to make sure they don’t DIE from anaphylaxis due to selfish, uncompassionate, uneducated people? I sure can’t. My one year old son is highly allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, beef, pork, soy and apples and people like you are my worst nightmare!

          • DaChieftain

            So… remind me again why the rest of the world needs to alter its diet to accommodate your kid’s unique dietary risk management circumstances? He seems to be allergic to quite a few things: peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, beef, pork, soy, apples — so exactly what are the other kids allowed to eat when he’s around? You’ve pretty much covered the entire food pyramid there.

            And no doubt there will be other kids in the school who are allergic to other things as well, and each of them will have their own shopping list of unreasonable demands, just like you.

            It’s far more efficient — and considerate — for you to adapt, rather than to expect the rest of the world to accommodate your shopping list of dietary constraints. That might mean feeding him away from the places where he is at risk.

            Take some responsibility for this situation.

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            Never said the rest of the world had to alter. My comment was in regards to a parent who said he would disregard a school rule and send peanut butter after a school said It was not allowed. Some schools have a large number of kids with severe allergies. Peanut allergy can be so severe that just breathing the air in a room where peanuts are can threaten their life. Eating peanut butter at home and not sending it to school when a special rule has been made in order to save an innocent child’s life is the responsible thing to do, Thank you very much :)

            Would you like to pay me at least $30,000 a year for 12 years so my family can survive while I stay home and educate my child. The government provides free education for ALL kids. If my kid can’t have it safely, then someone has to pay me :)

            And that’s how we get Obamas!

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            Did you attend public school? Since you seem to not know this, the government collects tax dollars and uses that money to fund public education. All children are required to attend school from age 5 to 16 or 18 depending on the state. There is no tuition fee charged for this public service. Public schools have been in place long before Obama was elected….LOL BTW this dumbass is an employed health professional with a college degree who graduated in the top of her class in both high school and college. It’s really funny when people who have no logical points to make in a discussion (and they don’t want to admit they are in the wrong )have to start relying on insults to try to intimidate the person with the valid argument, LOL. Or perhaps they just like to be trolls and see how many feathers they can ruffle.

            What’s so hard about not taking peanut butter to school if it could KILL someone? Really, your going to argue about this? You can have peanut butter for breakfast, after school snack, dinner and bed time snack every day and have it for lunch on the weekends too if that makes you happy. No where in my comment did I say that anyone had to change their diet for my kid. I commented after a person said he would disregard a school rule about not sending peanut butter, which is a selfish and irresponsible thing to do. Some kids are so sensitive to peanuts that just breathing the air in a room with peanuts will cause a life threatening reaction. Have a little compassion for your fellow man, especially a child who did not ask for this and just wants to be normal and make friends and enjoy school.

          • bungopony

            If a drinking fountain can kill your kid,HE has no business using the fountain.

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            Your right that my problems are not your problems. What u want to eat in your house and out in the world at large is your business and I don’t want to change that. Lets keep the discussion on point. I am talking about a captive environment, Public school, which every child is obligated and entitled to attend. If you cared to learn anything about the topic of food allergies, you would understand that with most food allergies as long as the food is not touched or ingested by the individual with the allergy there will be no problems, hence no need for special school wide rules to not send milk, soy, apples, etc.. Peanut is different. Many children’s reaction to this are so sensitive and so sever that breathing peanut particles in the air from someone who just ate peanut butter can send them to the hospital. My son’s allergy is not this severe, thank god, but I have sympathy for the children who do have to deal with this. The public school has a legal obligation to keep these kids safe. If the kids are hurt while at school because the special accommodations needed for their disability were not followed, the school is potentially liable. Since the schools can’t make sure every kid who eats peanut butter washes their hands and brushes their teeth after lunch to ensure the safety of the kids with the allergy, they make a rule that no one can have peanut products in school. Like I said in the beginning, people like you are my worst nightmare….selfish, uneducated and closed minded. It doesn’t matter how many facts you are presented with, you just don’t like someone telling you that you can’t do something. You would rather see an innocent child isolated and have their health and life put at risk every day. Not to mention the liability your actions would expose your child’s school to. If your kids peanut butter sandwich that you sent in blatant disregard of the school rule caused someone else’s kid to have to go stay in the hospital for a week would you want to pay for that hospital bill? Or if it killed the poor child would you spring for the funeral? I’m not sure of the legalities, but I sure do hope that you would be held fully responsible in a situation like that.

          • Bob Samples

            if a kid has allergies such as that teach them not to screw with anyone else’s food. Or are you one of these people that think that teaching children not to steal other people lunches is a bad thing?

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            Have you been around many 5 year olds when they eat? They tend to throw food around, and accidentally spill food if you haven’t noticed….Some food allergies like peanut are so severe that just breathing the air around peanut products will set of reactions. That’s why many schools make rules that peanuts are not allowed. My comment was in regards to a person who said he would blatantly disregard a school rule and send peanuts in his kids lunch. Would you have liked having to go eat lunch by yourself every day as a kid? Can you imagine how the isolation and teasing would have effected you? Do you think this psychological torture should be inflicted on an innocent child for his entire school experience, or could the other kids just not have peanut butter for lunch M-F during the school year?

          • Ogrrre

            Sorry, Jessica, but it sounds like you need to homeschool your kid, if he has that many food allergies. Just because your kid has allergies, my kid needs to go on a special diet or conform to your kid’s diet? Bull crap! Either homeschool, or have him carry an epipen. I’ll bet you’d get all outraged if the school had him sit at a special table, away from others so he won’t come in contact with allergens from other kids’ lunches, because it would make him feel different and lower his self esteem.

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            You are right I don’t like the idea of him being at a special table, would you want that for your child? Never said anyone had to change their diets. What you eat at home is your business. Don’t understand why everyone responds to this imaginary thing I never said. Public school is a public place where all children have the right to go. Will you pay me $30K a year for the next 12 years so I can feed and house my family while I give up my ability to earn an Income so I can stay home and do a job that the government already provides as a fee service based on tax dollars? I don’t wish severe allergies on anyone but I sure bet all you people would change your tunes pretty quick if it was your kid or grandkid were we talking about. LOL. My comment was about someone sending peanuts when a school rule against sending peanuts had been established, most likely to save the life of a child with a sever peanut allergy. Some kids are so sensitive if they breath the air around peanuts they will have a reaction, but I can’t expect the average internet commenter to take the time to learn about a subject before spouting off their opinion. Let’s just do it your way, survival of the fittest, your kid gets to carry peanuts, my kid gets to pack a gun! LOL

          • bungopony

            Again-your kid’s health is NOT my or my kids’ problem.This is what we’ve become-a nation of competing sob-stories,always the worse your problems are,the more they’re mine.

            As for the”school rule”,do you think school boards would be as accommodating of your kid if it was a choice between him&a tree?Think about that one carefully…

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            I’m having a hard time thinking about your comments because I can’t really understand them with all the typos. The spell check this forum offers has really been helpful for me. I am naturally a terrible speller. Seasonal allergies to tree pollen are inconvenient, but not life threatening like food allergies. I’m having a hard time believing you are seriously justifying your statement that you would choose to disregard a no peanut policy in a public school and send peanut butter with your kid anyway, by making up a scenario that involves removing trees. (I think that was what you were trying to say) Just face it, you have no leg to stand on. All the wild unreasonable allergy demand situations you like to make up in your head are completely irrelevant. If a kid could die because they were exposed to peanut particles in the air and the school (doing it’s due diligence) has decided to manage the situation by banning peanuts from their campus and you choose to send them anyway, then you are a terrible terrible human being. THE END.

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            Since people seem to like to assume I mean things that were not said in this comment let my clarify….I do not expect anyone else to change their diets. I myself still eat all the things my son is allergic to. In hind sight, I should not have even mentioned that my son has food allergies, then maybe the logic of my comments would have carried more weight, as it might have been seen as coming from a fair minded objective person instead of one of those “crazy food allergy moms who want to destroy my families diet and make me eat all the stupid crap they do” LOL….. Bottom line, when a school makes a rule that peanut products are not allowed, this is because there are children that are attending that school who could potentially die if they are exposed to peanuts. Sometimes all it takes is breathing the air in a room with peanuts. Not touching it, not eating it, just breathing the air around it. Disregarding this rule and sending peanuts with your child is just like sending your child to school with a loaded gun. Would you really want the death of an innocent child on your hands just because you don’t have a peanut allergy yourself, and you choose to remain uneducated and don’t want to believe it’s a real problem? Thank god that there is a process where by the rights of children with special needs are protected and children with disabilities are still somewhat allowed to go and receive equal access to their free educations. If it was left up to people like the ones who commented after me all of us genetic rejects with allergies and disabilities can just go uneducated and become wards of the state and be tax burdens to the rest of society for all of our days….or maybe they just want us to go crawl in a peanut hole and die?

          • DaChieftain

            It’s interesting that you perceive your child’s “rights” to trump your child’s health and safety. It’s also interesting that you perceive your child’s rights not to be exposed to a whole shopping list of foods to trump other children’s rights to eat the healthy foods their parents provide them for lunch.
            Intuitively, that sounds rather self-centered.
            Quite aside from that, wouldn’t a homeschool environment provide better risk management and a safer place for your child to be educated, given that you could absolutely control what foods are present? That seems like commonsense to me.

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            I never said that the foods my kid was allergic to should be avoided by other people or not sent to his school, that is an incorrect assumption on your part. I said that a person disregarding a school rule to not send peanuts was irresponsible and selfish, (or something to that effect)…..And it is…….point blank…..I am right on this no matter what you want to think…………thank god there are people in the school system and the legal system who have already established this as a point of law………… If you would like to pay me a minimum of $30,000 a year for 12 years so that I can stay home and educate my child I will be more than happy to do that. But as things are I’m betting you don’t have an extra 30K a year to give me and I really can’t afford to quit my job since I am the breadwinner of my family. It’s really amazing to me that all of you “non-peanut” allergy people think that it’s totally fair for me to give up my job and income and middle class lifestyle and want to turn my family of 5 into homeless welfare recipients all for the sake of being able to send peanuts to school with your kids…Give me a break….LOL

          • DaChieftain

            Nobody should have to pay you a single brass razzoo for you to undertake sensible risk management for your child, ma’am. Instead, you have placed a price-tag of $30,000 for you to do the right thing for your kid. Frankly, I don’t understand that attitude.

            And you’re seriously entrusting other parents to undertake the risk management (no peanuts) that you should be doing — even tho’ they’re way more likely to put your kid at risk than you are? I think that’s bizarre, frankly. And pretty selfish.
            Whether it is totally fair for you to hamper your middle-class lifestyle for your kid is a moot point. Life isn’t fair, and that’s the sad truth. It’s rough all around.

          • Jessica Ball Jones

            Which of these too scenarios is the more “irresponsible”. A. Having no source of income and not being able to provide food, clothing, and shelter for your children (let alone homeschooling supplies and an internet connect for online school) and being completely dependent on welfare and charity for your basic existence for 13 years so that your child’s fatal peanut allergies are not an “inconvenience” to the parents of other children who would attend the same public school .
            B. Being a taxpaying wage earner who provides food, clothing and shelter for their own children and trusts that the public education system their tax dollars goes to support will do what they are legally obligate to do, provide educational services to all children regardless of class, race, gender, or disability in a safe environment.
            Of course the obvious answer is B, LOL
            I do not trust other parents to undertake risk management for my child. Keeping him safe is my top priority. That’s why I am attempting to educate others about the real dangers of peanut allergy, but alas all my logic is falling on the deaf ears of people who really don’t care that much about anything but themselves .The figure of $30K is the cost of my lost wages if I were to homeschool my child. Thought that was pretty obvious there, but guess it needed to be spelled out more. If I can’t earn my own money, it’s got to come from somewhere, and honesty by the time all the food stamps and free housing and free cell phones and utility assistance and free health care my family would get per year on public assistance were added up, it would probably cost the tax payers a lot more than $30 K per year to support us if I were to take your advice and do what’s “right”. LOL The government looking out for it’s own best interest understands that it’s better for society as a whole if I am a tax payer, instead of a tax burden. That’s why I get to send my kid to public school, and if I make a request to not have peanut products in his class room and I have medical documentation to support the need for this request, I will be accommodated. I am entitled to work, and my son is entitled to a public education in a safe environment. You on the other hand are not entitled to threaten my child’s life by sending peanut products to school if a policy has been established that prohibits this. Just like you said, life is rough all around, and sometimes your kid might just have to wait until after school to enjoy a peanut butter sandwich…ROTFL :)

          • docola

            It may still be legal but it may not be the right one, then it gets taken away from the kids. Remember the girl whose turkey sandwich, carrots, and fruit got taken? She then had to eat their horrible chicken nuggets. I have tasted them, they are horrible! So are other foods they serve, disgusting! Bag lunch gets checked, no guarantee the kids get to eat it.

            Most would have. And in many cases, most of their older siblings did.

            2008 election: the 18 – 29 age group went for Obama 66 – 32.
            2012 election: the 18 – 29 age group went for Obama 60 – 37, so the above was a safe assumption.

            Kids K-12 are to blame…. for a politician, … good God that’s just eff’ing stupid. My kids are 12 and 14,. And we pay for their lunches, they aren’t free… and when the menu is really bad, we do brown bag..

            but blaming a 14 year old for what a 18 year old did 6 years ago?

            Nice to know some damn fool thinks my kid at 8 years old inflicted Obama on the country, her brother at 6…

            the petty nasty vindictiveness of that thought is stunning.

            Hell, just blame the kids born next year for the national debt? After all, they’ll be young voters in 19 years,…. avoid the Christmas rush and scapegoat the innocent early.

Although I, as an early age adult voted differently.. you cant blame the OLDER stupid people for what these kids have to deal with. They dont want “cake” they want a meal.. I struggled even getting a meal in school growing up because of YOUR generations decisions.

        Where did Jeff say anything about the Federal government?

        • sfrasher

          It was implied by leftISTS being in power, alluding to Obama being in office, hence the federal government.

          • Benjamin

            Well, I guess you also forgot that lefties and progressives can be in state government, local government and not in government. For example, fmr Mayor Bloomberg was a Mayor. The school superintendents who approve these means and fear bread shaped like Idaho are local. And that Prius driving mom that votes for Common Core and participation trophies aren’t elected. So, why do you assume federal government?

      • JeffWRidge

        Michelle is using her position, which is to say, her husband’s position and bully-pulpit, to push for different food standards at local school levels. Those standards are what the kids are complaining about and that is how she is dictating to them what they can eat. The local schools are following guidelines her anti-obesity program is shoving down their throats using that bully-pulpit.

        • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

          What that tells me is that the local districts are not that intelligent; they elected to implement the plan on their own (even considering federal penalties in this). The bully pulpit is a sad-sack excuse for local ineptitude. I do not accept the bully pulpit as an excuse unless there was compulsion. I stand by my stance that the parents and kids aren’t that bright.

          • JeffWRidge

            The influence is coming from Michelle, you know, the First Lady, and it’s very hard to resist that level of influence. Would you want to be the local school board member(s) to stand up to someone who has the President’s ear? Whenever anyone stands up to these people they get excoriated in the media. Not a good position to be in.

          • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

            Would you want to be the local school board member(s) to stand up to someone who has the President’s ear?

            Yes. That is called leadership and having a spine. Before I did so though, I’d contact a local nutritionist. As for the media, I would not be too worried about them…they’d have to blast the nutritionist as well. Some jobs are dirty, but someone has to do it.

          • JeffWRidge

          • Jill

            Every school, from primary to secondary, in my county qualifies as a Title One school. In order to maintain funding for the school breakfast/lunch programs, these changes had to be instituted. The only alternative was to make massive cuts in an area where so many have become accustomed to the school feeding their children twice daily all twelve months with only brief interruptions. Choose to not accept the bully pulpit argument, for that is your right. Most school employees and board members would disagree with you though.

          • Amy Messamore Blessing

            I work for a title one school. The lunches look nothing like that

            Many local district school boards or other school “leadership” are filled with leftist lemmings implementing whatever Nanny State says to do. To deny that is dishonest. They clearly are implementing what Moochie is dictating.
            I don’t know WTF that kid in the striped shirt is holding, but I would preserve it, take it to the next school board meeting, and demand a change be made within the district that any school employee be required to eat the same slop fed to the kids.
            As a taxpayer, you should be concerned over what your taxes are paying for.

          • Ogrrre

            You don’t think a boat load of “free” federal government money isn’t a form of compulsion?

      • Michelle ✓classified

            I agree. I have to sorta side with Michelle Obama on this. Don’t like the lunch. Bring your own damn food!

            And to take a page out of your book, libs are only okay with these mediocre lunches because it’s Michelle Obama. You’d be demanding the execution of the First Lady if it was a Republican’s wife.

          • carmenta

            Except, many kids ONLY get a meal at school – we even have programs to provide kids with a backpack for the weekend, because otherwise they may not have anything at all to eat! How are those pathetic lunches provide anything like enough calories or nutritional content for growing kids?? My 14 year old is almost 6′, wears a mens size 11 shoe, and is still growing. Needless to say, I pack his lunch and it is far more nutritious than that meanwich served in the cafeteria!

          • ceyanne

            I’m there with you. I have 9th & 6th grade girls. 9th grader is 5’11/size 12 shoe and the 6th grader is almost 5’10/size 11 shoe. They would come home RAVENOUS if that’s all they got for lunch.

          • carmenta

            I think mine would fall over – seems like he is a bottomless pit these days! Growth spurt time!

          • ceyanne

            That would be my 6th grader, too. Pretty sure the 14 yr. old is done growing, but my 12 y.o has grown 1.5 in. in the last 6 months. Both my older daughter & I grew 5 in. in middle school. If the 12 y.o. follows the trend (and she has on all other developmental phases), she could come out of 8th grade 6’1″. But not on lunches like that. Hence the reason she brings a packed lunch to school. And both my kids play sports. The 9th grader would have practice immediately after school and not get home until 6-ish, so imagine having breakfast at 630A, then a crappy lunch like you see in the above tweets around 1130A and then not having access to any other food until 6P or so. At the earliest, she could have gotten something from the vending machines around 4 (they turn them off during the school day and they don’t turn them back on ’til 4). So yeah, she packs lunch as well AND takes a snack for after school before practice starts. If she had to subsist the rest of her school day and then practice after school on a lunch like that, she would pass out. And that is no exaggeration. She WOULD pass out.

          • lukebandit

            Wow. Bless you kids hearts. All my sons were in sports in HS and they ate like kings late 90’s to the mid 2000’s, compared to these lunches. Your very blessed the school they go to does not ban outside food to eat.

          • thetreyman

            when i was in high school, i probably consumed 10,000 calories per day. i played football and there is no way i could have had the energy to preform with that lunch. i ate breakfast, a big lunch, then practice, then me and my step brother would get something on the way home, then a big dinner. we would then go to the gym with our family and either work out, swim or play basket ball for about 3 hours a night. those calories helped me be able to bench 300+ pounds and squat 400+ pounds by the end of my sophomore year. i was 5’11” with a 34″ waist line, defensive lineman that would mess your world up. and like i said, i and my step brother could have just about eaten our parents into the poor house.

          • Bill Sager

            Not that I am a Liberal, but for some children this is the only meal they will have for the day. The kids pay for the parent’s laziness or inability to provide!

            That is hitting the nail on the head. As a parent, it is MY responsibility to feed my kids, not the school, not Michelle. I think there are a lot more parents able to feed their kids, but they just don’t want to bother. I feel for those that actually rely on these poor meals.

          • Ogrrre

            In that case, charge the parents with neglect and/or child endangerment, and prosecute them. Investigate the parents to see if they are selling their foodstamps for cash or trading for drugs. There is no excuse for not preparing your kids’ breakfast and sending a lunch to school with them.

          • lukebandit

            Some schools BAN outside food from being brought to school! Still siding with FLOTUS? Maybe she will send you an invitation for the upcoming BIG expensive dinner party they throw next time at the White House. You won’t eat food there like these kids do at school! So shameful!

        That is a flat out lie, aemoreira81 I work in a school cafeteria the districts make up the menus locally, but the portions and food to be used are most certainly dictated by the federal gov’t.

      • MrSnuggles2k2

      “Lefties” is such a mild term. I much prefer “progressives” (who believe in the power of persuasion, or the persuasion of power), “socialists” (who believe the ends justify the means), “statists” (who believe you are too stupid to make decisions for yourselves), or “marxists” (who will force you to do what they want you to do, or just confiscate your “stuff” and kill you.)

      So, you see? Lefties is too soft a term for these Utopian theorists.

        Honestly, I’ve been searching for a really good term to use for these people, but nothing really fits. Some of them are communists, some are fascists, some are socialists, and so on. IMO, even progressive is inaccurate, because there’s nothing progressive about their agenda.

        I should probably use totalitarians, or authoritarians, because those seem to fit. I just don’t always think about it.

          • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

            Fiscal conservatism could have overcome any such penalties. Coercion is when there is no way out…but there IS a way out…consolidating programs to lower costs and consolidating food purchases (and districts) to increase buying power and reducing management needed might be ways. Districts below the county or township level are bloated, and this should have been that wake-up call to consolidate districts to reduce government. The state could also have made up the shortfall by cutting welfare.

            Cuts to welfare…consolidation of districts (to reduce management), outsourcing of yellow bus services…and the like. If push comes to shove, a move to hire an outside firm to provide school staff (while maintaining control over the schools) could be done as well.

          • Michael Rice

            Yes, because those will pass. Consolidate districts or take money…what do you think is going to happen?

          • David Mackey

            Wrong. You are an idiot. Easy to sit back and say cut funding else where. The lefty teachers union would have the media string these school administrators up by the balls. You are such a innocent babe in the woods. don’t have kids do ya?

          • Michael Rice

            Then why don’t you call every district in teh country and show them how easy it is to cut the money.?

          • Chrissy the Hyphenated

            Our school board does a brilliant job of budgeting. But they’re getting screwed by demographics. The WWII baby boom led to a huge number of tenured teachers coming into the system who are now retired or retiring. When the pensions were set up, people died at about 65. My 8th grade science teacher retired at 55 and died recently at 95. She worked about 30 years, then collected a pension for 40 years.

          • justlittlolme

            The problem with that is you’re assuming districts buy the bulk of their food from businesses, but they don’t.
            Most is purchased at a deeply ‘reduced’ cost from the Dept of Agriculture, a purchase which is tied to the *school lunch program*.
            Having worked in food services for years, I can safely say Moooshell’s ‘initiative’ is nothing more than government blackmail.

          • Darth Venomous✓unmedicated

            Ah, so you admit that such penalties did, and do, exist.

            So you admit you were lying about districts not being forced. Thank you.

            Y’know, you’re really not very good at this debate thingy. Mayhap you should go back to Josephine’s limp-wristed site and hone your skills a bit, hm?

            Fiscal conservatives aren’t in power; the Obamas are. #FAIL

        • mechsec

          yes, the districts are forced to implement the plan. Each public school has an office of child nutrition…now this office is responsible for providing all the lunches and breakfasts for the students and staff. They are required to meet all guidelines set forth by USDA standards or else they lose funding and the district is placed under review. At last I heard, the USDA is not a state organization, but federal, so the state departments of education are getting their marching orders from the feds.

        • Jill

          Alright. How would you suggest that a local district with a high participation rate in the federally mandated school lunch program go about making cuts to the food budget?

          • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 aemoreira81

            Contract out services, up to and including the teaching staff.

        • Michelle ✓classified
        • Michael Rice

          Yeah, because that works. You know darn well she had them over a barrel.

        • Chrissy the Hyphenated

          You aren’t much up on school budgets. A huge amount is mandated for already retired pensions. For years, our school made cuts to building maintenance to cover the difference, resulting in a $10K pool repair turning into a $1M pool repair. If you were trying to decide between fixing a roof, cutting a teacher or accepting the crappy lunch menus, what would you do?

        • carmenta

          WHERE??? should schools cut teachers (and face the wrath and expensive lawsuits of the unions)?

    • Jill

      Making funding increases in a time of budgetary shortfalls contingent upon adopting new standards is a de facto use of force.

        He just doesn’t get that :”Use our lunch standards or lose money” is a bad thing. He certainly doesn’t get how “use our standards or be forced into things like consolidating districts” is blackmail.

    Hey kids….when you grow up….be VERY careful who you vote for. Contrary to what a lot of low-information voters and non-voters will tell you, politics and those in charge affect EVERY area of your life. Even the lunches your kids get fed. Your lunch is a consequence of voting in people who come to power complaining about the other side wanting to protect unborn children as if that means they want to control your lives….then you realize that while the right is just protecting innocent human lives, the left wants to control EVERY aspect of your lives…really.

            Given that teenagers require more calories than adults, especially if they engage in sports, the small amount of food given to them is actually detrimental to their health. But hey; if you think Big Daddy Government is the only solution, suit yourself.

      That is the course that we always chose when our children were young. Increasingly, this choice is being taken away.

          • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

            For those who qualify for freebies. The rest have to pay out of pocket, don’t they? So when you pay for your school lunch, you have already paid for someone else’s lunch from your taxes.

          • WhoDat

            I think it was over a buck when I was in school in the 80s. I’m sure it depends on where you live, too.

            I love how in the eyes of liberals like himself, it’s horrifying to think that someone might make a choice for themselves or their kids that they don’t agree with.

          • WhoDat

            If those choices seriously harm their health, it’s all of our business.

          • NRPax

            I dare you to show me the law on the books that says that.

          • WhoDat

            The Affordable Care Act.

          • NRPax

            Try again. The only thing that the ACA does is mandate that people have health insurance. It says nothing about personal choices being the business of other people.

          • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

            Bingo!
            The biggest example of the government legislating themselves into our daily lives and determining who gets what care and who has to pay for who else’s care.
            Thank you!

          • H50 ✓RAT

            Obamacare does not by law regulate your food intake, but it does punish you with higher rates for outcomes outside the ‘acceptable margin.’

          • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

            NO NO NO NO NO NO!
            You are advocating opening the door for this over reaching government to come into our homes and control how we raise our children!
            The government’s definition of “health” is not to be imposed on American citizens. All in one comment, you have summed up the mindset that makes being a liberal a dangerous position to take.

          • WhoDat

            We are all in a society. Do you not believe we should be looking out for each other’s best interests?

            I’m not the boss of you.

          • NRPax

            No. We are free people and we are allowed to make our own choices. The only time other people get a voice in said choices is if we are depriving them of freedom.

            There are, however, a lot of countries outside the U.S. that believe in a collectivist viewpoint. They are called “wrong” but that’s another discussion.

            Everyone has a different definition of what’s best for themselves and their children. My definition may be bedtime at 10 pm, and the occasional meal out. I might not force kids to wear a helmet when biking. It’s not your call or the government’s.

            So what? I’m not hurting you nor am I trying to impose a lifestyle on you that you don’t like. If you want to surrender your individual freedoms to an indifferent government, I will step out of your way and allow you to do so.

          • WhoDat

            You seem to be advocating I can’t have a decision in what my tax dollars go to. If I want them to only be served salads, I should have the ability to express that opinion.

            Dont see anyone telling you, you cant express your opinion.

          • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

            Is Swiss cheese allowed on the school lunch menu?
            It’s white.
            It’s from a predominantly white country.

          • H50 ✓RAT

            Yikes! Its getting so complicated!

          • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

            Isn’t that what FLOTUS is doing by insisting that the schools serve HER definition of an acceptable lunch? See, she may think that kale and wheat germ are all a kid needs. That’s fine, but when she starts dictating her wishes on the rest of her subjects (although not her own kids…) that’s overstepping.
            If you’re worried about the kid next door eating too many Cheetos & Twinkies and getting fat, you are free to be a buttinski and do an intervention and risk whatever their response may be.
            The government needs to get its own house in order before it comes to tell us what we should feed our kids. They have bigger fish to fry.

          • NRPax

            Heck, have some schools reach out to the culinary institutes and see if they can plan menus once in a while.

          • H50 ✓RAT

            Wasnt there a TV chef that went to a school and did that?

            You seem to be advocating I can’t have a decision in what my tax dollars go to.

            That’s because reading comprehension isn’t one of your strong points. Never advocated for you not having the right to express an opinion.

          • H50 ✓RAT

            Unless your the CEO of a big company.
            Also, who gets to decide whats in our best interests. That would be the government who couldnt care less about your best interests, just your taxes. If they decide they need to raise taxes to the point that its not in your best interests, tuff nuts for you.

          How about FOOD?

          • H50 ✓RAT

            In the good old days they served you a balanced meal based on the daily intake recommendations from the five basic food groups and a filler. Basing lunches on caloric intake alone is stupid and this is what you get.
            What if the child is poor and the subsidized school lunch is the only ‘decent’ meal t hey get during the day?
            What the heck is this doing to them?

  • Flax Seed

    When I was a kid we had these things called brown bags that our parents put our lunches in.

    • NRPax

      True, but some schools have been cracking down on that.

      • Perry

        I’ve heard them say that some parents won’t fix their kids lunches, and they don’t want the kids to feel “bad” about it. More sinking to the lowest common denominator.

    • WhoMeToo

      Now schools are confiscating ‘brown bag’ lunches because they don’t meet district guidelines… and you can’t say ‘brown bag’…

          • WhoMeToo

          Yeah! Can’t men sling hash just as well as women can?
          Wait-men aren’t left in low-level jobs like that. Even the men without college educations, experience or personality are kind of groomed and escorted up the ladder.
          That’s my version of the feminist pity-party, and only because I’ve been the college grad working my posterior off to get ahead and been left in the administrative pool while the uneducated males get escorted to their own office.

        • stargater1

          Yeah, I never really did the Pizza thing really. We had a Seminary right next to us, that had a Sandwich shop, and the Seminary was very welcoming to us students. They’d let us eat there, and they had a few pool tables. Which made me late to class more then once. 😛 I’d have pizza about once a week, the rest was time at the Seminary.

    Those are some pretty pitiful school lunches. Maybe kids/parents should go back to brown bagging it. Or are the lunch nazis still making their rounds and confiscating/tossing ‘unacceptable’ food items? If that is the case, they starve either way.

    • Marvin Nelson

      They are still confiscating brown-bag lunches and sending nasty notes home to parents. These idiots make the Soup Nazi look like a saint. Thank God we had real lunches when I was in school, not the pitiful crap that they are serving up now.

  • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

    Life isn’t bad enough for a school kid who’s a little chunky to begin with. Now it’s even more wonderful because the other kids know it’s the fat kids’ fault that Michelle is hijacking their lunches. Hopefully this experience will breed a new generation of kids who think for themselves and value the freedom to do and eat whatever the hell they want without the government butting in.

  • Jake Bradford

    Meanwhile, Queen Michelle stuffs her face with every gourmet food imaginable, even on the few months a year she’s not on some luxury vacation. I’ve seen video of her eating. She inhales her food like a truck-driver.

    I love the irony of liberals telling our kids what to eat (even if they hate it) but they see nothing wrong with killing babies….

  • Stacy K

    I pack my daughter’s lunch everyday and I asked her one day if she could buy herself some milk from the lunch line since we were out of bottled water. She told me her school won’t sell just milk that she has to buy an entire lunch with 4 food groups.

    You know that’s just stupid. I clearly remember being able to go buy a small carton of milk in school for $.25.

    I know we all want our kids to eat healthier but serving them crap they won’t even eat is just wasteful. It’s a waste of time for the cafeteria staff to make and a waste of food seeing as how most of it probably gets throw out and I can assume I’m right by how absolutely unappetizing these meals look.

            Previously: Planned Parenthood doesn’t do abortions, doesn’t get money from the government.

      Most of the schools serving this slop were sucked into the Federal School Lunch program with the gift of a few dollars, then given reams of rules, laws, requirements, and restrictions that bind them forever. My school had a cafeteria director fired because she brought spices purchased with her own money to school in order to make the meals more tasty. The vast majority of students now bring lunch or eat pizza or specialty foods brought in from local establishments.

      Understandable, Nelson. However, this is not your home country, this is lunch in the USA where food is supposedly plentiful and readily available. This isn’t a country where there is famine or war or rampant extreme poverty. That these kids went from a filling lunch to this is the outrage.

      I’m sure you can understand this. If you are here in the US now, you would understand the comparison and the outrage. I actually had the same thought that there are some who would consider this a feast in certain parts of the world. Welcome to the land of plenty. Supposedly.

    • kindamara

      It’s a good idea to bring your own lunch. However, I think most lunch police are inspecting them. If a home lunch isn’t “up to” the standards of the federal lunch, it’s thrown out. The kid is then charged for the Government lunch. If they don’t have the money the don’t eat. Sad … Kids are growing and need more than 300 calories for a lunch. A lot of us were on the hefty side as kids but we out grew it. We didn’t sit in front of video games or television all day/night either.

    I’ve seen first-hand how truly sad the portions are for school lunches now. Last year I was working as the lunch aide for my son’s pre-k class. We were given our food from the lunch room with instructions on how to portion it (because the pre-k kids eat in their classroom). On taco day I was literally told to portion out 2 tbsp. of meat per taco. One taco per child. And if I didn’t portion it correctly I would run out and get the stink-eye from the lunch lady when I had to ask for more. Poor kids. And yet, with all the calorie counting, there didn’t seem to be much concern for what kind of food was being served. For breakfast they were serving poptarts and nutrigrain bars. Idiocy.

    So, just going to say this. The high school kids didn’t vote for Obama. Just putting that out there because some moron said that that’s what young people get for voting for Obama. Sorry, we can’t vote until we’re 18. High school kids are 14-17. I’m 22 for the record.

    As for what they’re eating, apparently Michelle didn’t take into account children who have blood sugar issues. That little amount of CRAPPY food, wouldn’t last me 2 hours during a physically active day. It’s not HEALTHY at ALL. Half a kiwi? Who does that? Does Michelle have a degree in health and nutrition? Nope, not that I know of. So what gives her, or any political, or in her case, civilian, the right to tell children what’s healthy without a degree? Wait, she’ll produce a degree that came off the same printer as her husband’s proof of citizenship.

    Fact is, this is crap, and I’d opt out of public school if they were feeding my kids that. Why was this implemented? Three words: Obama is socialist. Both the husband and wife. Next thing you know they’ll shut down the web, or didn’t they already try to censor it?

    There really is NO end to the most transparent government in American history.

So two carbs and something that looks like meat.. And why is there a small sandwich and half a kiwi ? Why not a big salad and a lot of fruit? Where did all that great food go that was supposed to be on kids lunches. I pray that America elects someone with a brain and not a agenda next time and that that Pres VOIDS all these stupid new laws.

    This is the way progressives operate. They put out what they think is a great idea. They implement it. They then heavily regulate it to death. And then, when it fails, they blame the Republicans. School lunch is a fine example of progressivism in action. The focus is supposed to be feeding kids who aren’t getting food – of any kind – at home. Progressives who claim to understand the common man fail to understand this need. So, instead of worrying about feeding the hungry, they make the food so disgusting that even the roaches stay away from it. As a result, even more kids are going home hungry. One conservative said that the best thing to ever come out of America is the $1 cheeseburger at McDonald’s. It’s $1 worth of food that can actually last an entire day for a kid. But no, the cheeseburger doesn’t fit the progressive model. The next time a progressive tell you that he fully understands the needs of the middle class, tell him to take his sex organ, stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, and basically tell to have sex with himself.

    I’m one of the few right-wingers that fully supports banning unhealthy food and ingredients, stronger food safety regulations and mandatory exercise.

    We have an obesity epidemic in this country. What’s the conservative solution? Personal responsibility? Allowing people to eat whatever they want is what created this problem in the first place. It’s gotten to the point where the government should intervene.

    I also read that obesity rates have actually started to decline recently. I wouldn’t be surprised if government regulations like Michelle Obama’s crappy school lunches helped to achieve that. If it works, it works.

    Putting junk food back into school lunches just to be opposed to Democrat policies is completely moronic.

    If you give kids the choice of what to eat, they’ll pick the pizza and french fries covered in a pound of melted cheese every single time. They’ll also get the chocolate chip cookie and the chocolate milk or soda. Not to mention the junk food vendors which they’ll use every single day. That’s the reality at your typical high school. And something needed to be done about it.

    • unclebarb

      All this lunch campaign has done is make it so that when a kid goes home after school, they raid the fridge and cabinets because they are hungry. Kids do not get fat from school lunches, they eat too much at home an do not get enough running around and exercise.
      Many schools have abandoned recess and phys ed.

      • Marsh626

        Just because kids can eat unhealthy food outside of school doesn’t mean that we should let kids eat whatever they want at school.

      Kids always ate crap like that. The difference now is that they get less activity, no gym, picked up and dropped off at the curb, play less sports, etc. You want to reduce obesity, then give the kids something to do. I taught in Japan. In Japan, school kids have to participate in after school activities for grades, have to clean up their classrooms, hallways and sports fields (there are no janitors), and they have to walk, bike or take public transportation to and from school (there are no school buses). And guess what … school budgets are lighter and so are the kids.

    The human brain uses about 20 to 30% of a person’s energy
    intake. Relative to it’s size and weight, it is very
    demanding. That’s why People who don’t consume enough
    calories in their diet are more likely to experience changes
    in their brain functioning. Even the mere decision to skip
    breakfast has its consequences: it is associated with lower
    verbal fluency, lower ability to solve problems and the lack
    of motivation.
    [ Sounds like Mooch may be trying to create more liberals and thus more dependency on the federal government. Let’s face facts, liberals love those who can’t communicate, solve problems on their own and have no motovation. That’s the base of the democrat party. ]

    High levels of energy deprivation (continual hunger,
    starvation) massively affects mental responsiveness.
    The body responds to energy deprivation by slowing down
    most non-essential functions, hormonal levels, oxygen
    transportation, immune level efficiency, and several other
    physical functions that somewhat affect brain function.
    People with a continual low energy intake often feel
    apathetic, sad and depressed.
    [ apathetic, sad and depressed…aren’t these the type of kids that schools get more tax dollars for and aren’t they the ones on all the big pharma meds….and the ones that do many of the shootings in schools ]

    People respond differently to different
    diets. In other words, there is a large individual variation in the
    body’s response and need for different nutrients.
    [ and once again we see why the government and their “one size fits all” approach isn’t the way to solve problems, only creates more, which in turn creates more need for government ]

    I don’t know if there is any connection, but many cults but their adherents on a restricted diet to keep them in line. There is nothing like a protein deficiency to inhibit free thinking.

  • Mike Benton

    She is sort of saying “let them eat cake” in her arrogant actions and trips…is cake on the list of lunch items?

  • Steve__Jacobson

    If those pictures are examples of what schools are providig for lunch around the country it borders on criminal.

    • Chloe

      The pictures are NOT examples of what schools are providing.

      • QueenB

        Of course, not. Because you said so. Good little Obamabot. Here’s your pat on the head. You can go back to Kos now.

  • teacher extraordinaire

    Something is seriously wrong with these trays…none of our kitchens put out trays that look like this…first, have you ever heard of a washable tray? Part of the cost should not have to be a disposable tray every day…Secondly…our kids get beautiful whole grain bread products with their meat, plus potatoes, veggies, fruit, milk, etc. Their are often five or six items on the tray every day. Either these photos are taken by people mid-line or the person checking them out are charging them for ala-carte…because to charge them for the school lunch there must be certain components according to federal guidelines…a sandwich and milk doesn’t meet that guideline – check it out – that’s not what they are getting paid by the government to give your kids….I’ve been in the schools for 31 years…I know it is different…I would send lunch from home…but these photos are not right.

    • ledzepp8

      They’re probably coming with all of the necessary components, the kids just aren’t choosing those items. Like they don’t want the kiwi half or the scoop of salad…so they’re only taking the sandwich and milk.

    I’m a teacher in an urban high school. I normally bring my lunch. One day I forgot. Went down to the cafeteria. It was repulsive. It was tiny. It was not worth the money. They refuse to put any salt on anything and will not provide so much as a salt shaker to the students or staff customers.

    • Chloe

      Hate to tell you this, but you can exist without salt.

      • QueenB

        If she CHOOSES to have salt, it is her choice. Let me guess…..not really pro-choice on most things, just ONE thing, right?

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        It is our choice whether or not we want salt. We don’t need any Obama-loving, koolaid drinking, liberal sycophant zombies telling us what we need and don’t need… thank you very f*cking much.

    My daughter hates you Michelle Obama, with the passion of a child hungry and given utter garbage for food…… because Michelle is so much smarter than every parent ever born.. congratulations on making a generation of kids go hungry because you think it’s funny to give them a meal chain gang convicts could sue and win over.

    • Chloe

      Maybe you should feed your kid better AT HOME and NOT depend on school lunches.

      • QueenB

        Maybe Mark and his daughter made the CHOICE to have hot lunch because she used to enjoy it, which of course, is none of your business. But of course, the only choice people like you think parents should have applies only to killing the child before it’s born.

  • DontBeALiberalFool

    From the abundance of schools now ‘banning’ homemade or ‘sack’ lunches, what other option do our kids have? Government clearly enjoys being in control of everything in our lives, yet they can’t even control themselves. Oh, the irony! How’s all of that ‘Hope and Change’ working for ya? And it isn’t as though ‘Chelle and her children are in the epitome of health themselves. Have you not seen ‘Chelle’s photos, from her recent ‘vacation’ to China? That butt is HUGE!

    Look up Sidwell’s menu. It isn’t this bad, so somebody is looting the food budget and blaming Michelle for everything (and not just the calorie free part)

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      You are clearly missing the point. If these public schools want federal monies, they have to comply with The Mooch’s guidelines.

      However, the little princesses that attend Sidwell actually eat much better than 98% of teenagers their age, and probably 75% of America as a whole.

  • momofthree

    Um, this is NOT always the case. Let’s see – my 2 kids still in high school (15 and 16) ate lunches in the last week that consisted of Spaghetti/meat sauce, a salad, a roll, and applesauce, another meal of salmon and baked potato with a small salad, and the worst day (shudder) was prepackaged fish sticks, french fries, and fresh fruit. Best part – we homeschool and 95% is prepared by my kids, who not only run circles around their peers academically, but exercise more than an hour each day. Isn’t it time we take the reins back while we still can??

  • Adelie Manchot

    Here’s a sample of what the Obama kids get for lunch at their fancy school with 11 armed guards. http://www.sidwell.edu/documents/menus/US-MS-menu-march.pdf

  • Sbell

    How do you think the “Hunger Games” got started?

  • ZoomZoomDiva

    School lunches were not perfect, but they already had a set of nutritional standards they needed to follow before Michelle Obama and the USDA went on a crusade and drafted these draconian standards that are not adequate for many children. It wasn’t school lunches that were leading to obesity in the past, and these changes we not improvements for the most part.

  • Aimee

    Parents in school districts can decide how to feed their kids if a decision needs to be made. We can get by without Mrs. Dictator’s guidance.

  • thinkingabovemypaygrade

    get a reality show where chefs have to take reasonably healthy food…and make it into stuff…that kids actually want to eat. Also…have a little dessert.

    One should aim for a moderately healthy lunch…but remember.. some kids NEED lots of energy (thinking especially kids in sports, notably teen boys…) so let them have the higher fat foods. They need it.

    • Adelie Manchot

      They tried that in Britain with Jamie Oliver ‘redesigning’ the school lunch menus. The kids wouldn’t eat it and quite frankly I don’t blame them. You wouldn’t eat it, either. Well, you might if you are some Michelle Obama worshiping troll who would eat excrement in a bun to support anything the Obama’s do and say.

  • Kklgma

    I think it would be interesting for a state dinner to be served that meets the requirements of the federal school lunch program. Afterwards, everyone attending would have to visit the local McDonald’s drive through to get filled up!

  • Nancy Wolever

    Maybe they should start serving this in the White House & the Congressional cafeteria!!!!! If it’s good enough for pur kids, it’s Good enough for all of them!!!!

    • kindamara

      Better yet, they should serve these lunches at the private school the Obama children attend.

  • Heather Benson

    Up until this year, my children were in public schools. I must say their lunches looked NOTHING like these pics. At their elementary school, they had multiple choices of what they could eat . Being on a majorly fixed income, and on government assistance, there were many days when the school breakfast and lunch were their main meals. “Packing” was a special occasion. I am plenty sure many other families are in the same situation. It’s bad enough they took God out of school, spanking out of school, and now they look to be taking food out. No wonder we have our children going on killing sprees.

  • Independentview

    Meanwhile in the obama world.

  • Chloe

    Why is everyone blaming Michelle Obama? BLAME the school district!!! The school district is the one responsible for school lunches!! NOT the White House!

    • QueenB

      Well, if you want to get federal money to help support the school district, you best stick to what Michelle says.

  • proff_darrelHS

    I feel they should g further and ban any food students bring into the school. They dont need anymore to eat besides what is erved for school lunch. The average school kid is too fat thats the whole idea you right wing neaderthalls posting here!!

  • floridavet

    The Obama’s football tailgate party menus at the White House bear little or no resemblance to Moochelle’s school lunch menu, but the spread the Saudi’s recently laid out for them is the epitome of hypocrisy.

    This is how the Obamas dine while feeding schoolkids carrots and broccoli.

  • kimmy

    I bet michelles kids dont eat that crap for lunch.

    • llsmith50

      I sure the private school don’t have to comply. When the parents are spending lots of $$$$$, a lunch of restuant quality is part of the tuition.

  • Pedro

    Hypocrisy? You think? Michelle has been packing something other than broccoli in her expanding posterior.

  • Pedro

    You know what really bugs me? The Obama’s are living it up on the tax payer dime. Living like royalty! Then telling us we can and cannot do. I could chew nails!

    This is all part of the government move to dumb down America so it can control it. Feed the kids crappy food so that they can’t learn properly and they will all be working at McDonalds for minimum wage.

    Glad the kids are saying NO WE WON’T !!!
