Michelle Obama is going after potatoes. She's banned them from WIC and, as I wrote a few days ago, Michelle Obama's war on food is emblematic of the elites' indifference to the people.
Obama wrote a long article for the paper of Liberal Record, the NY Times:
Right now, the House of Representatives is considering a bill to override science by mandating that white potatoes be included on the list of foods that women can purchase using WIC dollars. Now, there is nothing wrong with potatoes. The problem is that many women and children already consume enough potatoes and not enough of the nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables they need. That’s why the Institute of Medicine — the nonpartisan, scientific body that advises on the standards for WIC — has said that potatoes should not be part of the WIC program.As I discussed here, Michelle Obama's children go to an expensive school that has an award winning caterer prepare their meals, including chilled blueberry soup.
And she's highly offended that you would want potatoes when you have too many! and you're too fat!
Michelle has gone on the offensive to preserve her public school restrictions, ruling that it's "unacceptable" to tinker with her masterpiece, with fan Carol Costello even claiming that Mrs. Obama herself has the right to write law, saying Michelle Obama “signed the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act into law."Of course, you'll notice that potatoes--french fries!!gasp!!--are on her children's lunch menu.
Is this not an excellent example of the detachment of the country's elite "let 'em eat cake" mentality regarding most of us out here?
But none for public school kids and none for women who are on the dole.
I mean, if you let the government feed you with taxpayer money, I guess you get what you get.
