All first ladies have their little causes. Nancy Reagan had her “war on drugs”. Linda Bush had her crusades against stupid kids (good luck with that one). And Michelle Obama has child obesity. How touching, right? While her hubby deals with important concerns like cutting our national debt (wait a minute), this valuable White House mommy strikes up wars against cultural issues. Oh… how cute!
Turns out, that every time someone pushes their nose into our lives, whether it be Barry or his ugly wife, Michelle, a little more of our freedom is trampled on. The latest news story – the lunch police. Here – read up:
RAEFORD – School and state officials say a misunderstanding resulted in a West Hoke Elementary School preschooler’s homemade lunch being replaced with chicken nuggets.
An agent from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Child Development and Early Education was at the school Jan. 30 assessing the pre-kindergarten program, said Bob Barnes, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction for Hoke County schools.
The agent examined the lunches for the six students in the class and believed one did not meet nutritional requirements spelled out by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Barnes said.
According to the USDA, schools are required to provide lunches that include one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.
The 4-year-old, whose name was not released, brought a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, potato chips and apple juice.
The Department of Health and Human Services declined to say which requirement was not provided in the child’s lunch.
The girl thought she had to go through the lunch line for a new meal, Barnes said.
By the way – that clever little piece was taken from
Now, the article goes on to say “we aren’t trying to be the lunch police”, but if that’s not what they’re doing, what ARE they doing? Why are there federal agents in pre-schoolers’ lunch bags? I know, I know – to look out for the children. Well, apparently, the government knows best, and will step right in front of parents to lead the way. Michelle Obama and her obesity goons now have their hands all over your child’s lunch.
It’s the little things that make up life. Things like taking pride in making your child’s lunch in the morning. Well, parenting is no longer the job of parents. From cradle to grave – the government will take care of you. The government will tell you what to feed your child, what to teach your child, and how to discipline your child. You, as a parent, are being stripped of your rights. Ain’t it great? No responsibility! No concerns! The government will be here to hold your hand…
