Michelle Obama controls your child’s school lunch. Right down to the number of grapes in the mandatory ½ cup of fruit. In case you hadn’t heard, her federal school lunch standards take effect in September.
Beginning in September, the new lunch standards, introduced in January by First Lady Michelle Obama under the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act, will be implemented. The standards were created to help fight childhood obesity throughout the nation.
This involves the inclusion of fruits, vegetables, whole grain-rich foods, low-calorie foods and foods with reduced amounts of saturated and trans-fats and sodium in students’ diets.
Specifically, 50 percent of grains served beginning July 1, 2012, must be whole grain-rich, with the percentage planned to increase to 100 percent within two years. A minimum of 1/2 cup of fruits and vegetables must be taken by students daily and over the next 10 years, total sodium should be reduced by 50 percent in school meals.
Freedom? Liberty? Choice? Not in Obamaville. Big Brother says, all your children are belong to us. Kids will eat what Michelle Obama tells them to eat, and they’ll like it.
And kids, more good news for your parents too! Mr. Obama, along with his eco-nutty friends, are making sure fuel, is sky-freaking high!
Gasoline prices hit a record high yesterday. Good thing that evil oil man Bush isn’t in the White House or the media would be screaming bloody murder.
Except if an oil man was in the White House we’d be increasing domestic energy production to compensate. Instead we have Obama and the econuts conspiring to keep our petrodollars flowing to OPEC and the Saudi kleptocrats. They’ll do anything to delay new drilling and pipeline projects.
Despite nearly four years of environmental study and two separate permit applications, TransCanada has been unable to lay a single foot of pipe for the Keystone XL project in the United States. The delay in this project has spanned the publication of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement, a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement, a Final Environmental Impact Statement, no fewer than five national comment periods and the input of hundreds of thousands of Americans.
You’d think we’d be at the end of the process, right? Oh Hell No! Obama is starting the entire permitting process over from Square One.
Now, as the State Department closes the latest of these public comment periods — this one asking Americans what the scope of its newest environmental review of the project should be — we are about to start this entire process all over again. The delays and forced route changes that TransCanada has been forced to endure have added more than a billion dollars to the cost of the project, suspended tens of thousands of high paying jobs, delayed relief at the pump for millions of American drivers and prevented the project from pumping more than $20 billion into the U.S. economy.
Meanwhile up in Alaska the econuts are suing Royal Dutch Shell and the U.S. government to cancel new drilling permits issued for the Beaufort and Chukchi seas.
In a report released Monday, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is urging the government to hold off on approving Royal Dutch Shell’s plans for Arctic drilling until more information can be gathered about the project’s environmental effects on the region.
And if your mom and dad are not down with a huge gas bill, tell them to wait until Obama’s war on coal drives their electricity bill through the roof!
We are sooo screwed if we do not un-elect this Neo-Marxist
