Michelle Obama doesn't believe parents are capable

President Obama along with his wife, Michelle Obama have signed a new child nutrition bill, effective today.  Which means for parents, more government interference and control of our public school system and control over what our children can and cannot eat while at school. 

This bill is going to cost all taxpayers $4.5 billion that will allow more children to eat lunches and dinners at school, which is part of Michelle Obama's campaign to end child hunger and fight childhood obesity. She basically is forcing schools to cut down on foods like pizza, hamburgers, or whatever kids love to eat.  This bill will give the government the power to DECIDE what kinds of foods may be sold in vending machines and lunch lines, and it could even limit frequent school bake sales and fundraisers that give kids extra chances to eat fun tasty goodies.

And to add further insult to parents Michelle Obama was quoted stating, "It's clear that we, as a nation, have a responsibility to meet as well," she said. "We can't just leave it to the parents." 

Apparently Michelle Obama doesn't believe that parents are capable of being entrusted with their own children but believes the government can do a better job feeding our children. What's next?

I don't think for one minute that either of those two give a rats-rear-end about my children or anyone else's children. It's about training our children to be good, obedient little socialists.

Otherwise, we wouldn't have this ridiculous bill to begin with.  Once again, the Obama's and their administration are forcing Americans to embrace socialism.

The malcontent: Don't wait, rise up and help STOP this garbage.

This is how it starts, then before you know it, All children are owned by the STATE and parents are nothing more then care takers. This is how it is in China, Cuba and No. Korea.

Social engineering at it's most horrendous...The targeting of children!

Don't get it... Schools already provide food, so it's no more socialist than it was before... just a better, more varied diet. I applaud it. Improves health, concentration and behaviour, especially for children witout access to a good diet at home. What's the objection? Restricting childrens' choice isn't socialism, parenting / locoparentis.

Do you object specifically to introducing kids to a range of foods and making sure they get a variety with all necessary vitamins, minerals etc.?

The state has no business dictating what parents may feed their children. More nanny-statism.

This is part of the inane "It takes a village to raise a child" meme postulated by Hillary Clinton. All of these people are cut from the same roll of cloth: Saul Alinsky and Herbert Marcuse. They are communists, pure and simple. But now let us try to imagine how someone like Obama got himself elected in the first place ... It is the payoff for one hundred years of socialist brainwashing in our public schools.

Leticia said...

It really is astounding the audacity of the Obamas' to claim that parents aren't capable of feeding their kids properly and need to step in? What a bunch of bull.

And we can't afford another of their ridiculous plans. The schools are serving great meals, all the food groups, and I don't see a problem with the vending machines.

The whole point is for the government to butt out of our business.

Here we go....Cradle to grave!

The biggest problem was found in your opening sentence:

President Obama along with his wife, Michelle Obama have signed a new child nutrition bill, effective today.

Totally nothing to do with your writing or what you said, but you hit it right there on the head.

Why is the first lady signing a bill in the first place? Who granted her the right to executive power, and why is she so involved with the Executive Branch of our federal government when in fact she doesn't have these powers to begin with?

Nice work in bringing this to our attention! It goes to show that the public needs to start reading more, but they're blind when it comes to things like this.

Well, she runs the show, I think. She keeps BHO on a short political-leash. Ugh.

Leticia said...

AOW, how right you are my friend on both comments.

Steve, she is the ultimate puppet master.

"Once again, the Obama's and their administration are forcing Americans to embrace socialism."

It's the only way socialists can get their way, by forcing people into line or like in the old days, just shooting the dissenters.

It'll be a great day when that kenyan commie is turfed out of office.
