Kentucky students supply an honest review of the allegedly healthy meals moonbat meddler Michelle Obama sees fit to inflict on them:
“They say it tastes like vomit,” said Harlan County Public Schools board member Myra Mosley at a contentious board meeting last week, reports The Harlan Daily Enterprise.
The growing body of USDA meal regulations implemented by the Department of Agriculture under the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010″ has long been a signature issue for the first lady.
Denizens of Harlan County don’t much care, though. Their primary concern at the board meeting was a bevy of complaints that local children are starving at lunch — and for the remainder of the school day — because the food on offer in the cafeteria is crappy and there isn’t nearly enough of it.
Consequently, kids will cross the street to the nearest convenience store to stock up on fattening junk food. Heavy-handed government coercion can be relied on to produce results directly opposite to stated intentions.
The actual purpose is the same as for most everything the government does: control as an end in itself.
Jack Miniard, the school district’s director of school and community nutrition, was on hand to explain that the federal government now governs both food choices and portion sizes in most American school districts including Harlan County.
Imagine traveling back in time and attempting to warn the Founding Fathers that they should put something specific in the Constitution to defend children from a conspicuously ample-bottomed First Lady starving them for their own good. They probably would have laughed that if Americans ever degenerate to the point of tolerating anyone who would attempt to impose such idiocy, it would take more than a piece of parchment to save us.
