FLOTUS wants to impact the nature of food in the grocery store

Just heard what Michelle Obama says her second term goal to be if her husband (God forbid) is re-elected.

 “Impact Nature of Food in Grocery Stores”

First of all, what on earth could she mean by impacting the nature of food?  Please, God, deliver us from this nightmare.  It would be funny if it didn’t bring tears to your eyes.

This just reminded me of the “big deal” of the first lady’s MyPlate roll out in June of last year, upon which she spent enough to pay a $40,000 per year salary for 50 years:

FLOTUS unveils MyPlate icon, Obama downs hot dog(s), chili & fries in Toledo.

Shouldn’t she concentrate on getting rid of crime in the streets or feeding the hungry?

Or maybe impact the nature of the food of those nearest and dearest to her heart first before she launches into our food.

Someone once said something about getting the log out of your own eye first…..

But we do not intend to let this 2nd term business happen.  We have a chair to fill.

Democrats are voting on November 2nd this election?

Well, according to the First Lady, I guess so.  Sounds like a good idea to me.  🙂  There’s also a special election set up for them on November 7th.

Michelle Obama, speaking yesterday at a campaign event in Florida:

So that one new voter that you register in your precinct — think about it — that one neighbor that you get to the polls on November the 2 I want you to understand, that could be the one that makes the difference. That one conversation, that one new volunteer you recruit, that could be the one that puts this over the top.

The presidential election this year is November 6.

FLOTUS unveils MyPlate icon, Obama downs hot dog(s), chili & fries in Toledo

Obama Foodorama details the unveiling of Michelle Obama’s new food group icon, MyPlate.org.

It just got a little bit easier for kids and their families to follow the Let’s Move! campaign and try to eat like First Lady Michelle Obama. In Washington today, Mrs. Obama unveiled “MyPlate,” the federal government’s new primary food group icon, designed to be an easy-to-understand visual cue to encourage people to adopt eating habits consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

I can see Mark Levin’s head exploding from here.

It comes with a little booklet, (very high end color printing job and probably very expensive) that devotes a page to dire warnings not to change this MyPlate icon in any way.

Listen up, children, this is important.  Below is the page dedicated to the improper use of MyPlate.  Watch for the Obama MyPlate Food Police.

Oh, here we go:  “The icon cost about $2 million and months of work to design and to create, according to USDA sources.”  That’s enough to pay a salary of $40,000 per year for 50 years.  Outrageous.  Cut. their. funds.  Wasting money like this is outrageous any time, especially with so many out of work.

And the MyPlate is so, so much better than the MyPryamid currently in use.  Right!

There is major worry that:

“the food industry in general will use the icon to market foods, but USDA has issued a ten-page “MyPlate Style Guide and Conditions of Use” booklet to attempt to control its messaging tool. The booklet warns ALL users against altering the image in any way–no changes in typeface, color, or position of the food groups on the plate are allowed, for instance. and use of the icon doesn’t imply that USDA endorses the food, according to the booklet.”

“No matter what USDA does, the food industry will figure out a way to use it [MyPlate] to sell more food.  A bottom-line focus always trumps public health, alas.”

Horror of horrors.  Imagine the food industry trying to sell more food.  Can we get these people out of the White House?

I see where POTUS escaped to Toledo yesterday and grabbed a hot dog with mustard, onion, chili sauce and cheese, with a bowl of chili and fries on the side.

Quote of the Day:

“By the way, as an afficionado of hot dogs, you shouldn’t put ketchup on your hot dog… I’m trying to teach my girls.”

President Obama, as he stopped for a bite at Rudy’s Hot Dogs in Toledo, Ohio.

Some say it was TWO chili dogs…..

Michelle fights obesity – to make cameo on Iron Chef America

Here’s a sure cure for obesity and it won’t cost a thing.  Keep this picture handy and when you feel hungry, take it out as you try to eat that turnip casserole, or anything else for that matter.  The pounds should fall right off.michellecookingorange dress

After the chefs finished foraging for vegetables in the White House garden, the first lady came out to make a cameo in the episode (wearing a pumpkin-orange dress with teal blue shoes and short sweater!) and talked about her crusade to reduce childhood obesity through better school lunches, community gardens, farmers’ markets and exercise. Iron Chef America is watched by over a million viewers, and off-camera the first lady told the chefs, “This is huge. It is going a long way to help change the way this country thinks about food. I want you to come back.”

I think Michelle is recommending the sweet potato casserole, apparently an Obama favorite.

The mask is really slipping

“”It is now abundantly clear that the image of Barack Obama sold to the American electorate was tightly edited, air-brushed, and exaggerated. He has worn a series of masks — eloquent orator, brilliant scholar, centrist, and literary sensation.” [Thomas Lifson]

The new book by Chris Andersen called “Portrait of an American Marriage” about the Obama marriage didn’t seem to be anything I would be interested in.  I don’t find their marriage very interesting, but there seems to be some other things in the book that I do find compelling.

The American Thinker has something written today that Dreams of My Father was produced, basically, by a ghostwriter – namely Bill Ayers. I read a little something about this before the election, but it was all covered up. It’s getting a little bit harder for the “fringe” press and media to provide cover.

Now that kids and private citizens are doing the job of investigative reporters, the New York Times has hired someone to read conservative blogs and listen to conservative radio to try to make sure they are not blind-sided as they were with the ACORN story and the Van Jones story. I thought that was what Media Matters was for.  Oh, that’s right, they don’t tell the truth.  Pretty funny. In fact, hilarious.  They won’t release the name of said person. Undercover, I guess.  🙂

The mask has just about slipped completely off, but who does it reveal? That is the question. I’m afraid to know.

But Thomas Lifson’s article begins:

It is now abundantly clear that the image of Barack Obama sold to the American electorate was tightly edited, air-brushed, and exaggerated. He has worn a series of masks — eloquent orator, brilliant scholar, centrist, and literary sensation. All of these masks are coming off as he copes with a job for which image will not suffice.  For instance, hiding behind the eloquent orator mask is a guy who says “uhh” a lot when he is winging it, and who makes lots of factual and grammatical mistakes.

Now, thanks to Jack Cashill, the literary mask has been removed. Obama is a literary pretender. Case closed. The evidence is overwhelming that Bill Ayers ghost-wrote Dreams from my Father, the book which established Obama’s pose as a brilliant writer (and therefore a fine mind, in the estimation of many).

But according to Jack Cashill of the American Thinker Obama may not be able to take too much credit for the book:

Cashill said:

Obama boasted in Virginia last year, “I’ve written two books,” he told a crowd of students and teachers. “I actually wrote them myself.”

The media should be able to protect his reputation among the willfully blind but don’t expect to hear Obama make comparable boasts in the near future.

New York Magazine asks: “Who is the world’s most glamorous presidential spouse?”

More importantly, after this past week, I am wondering, who is the new leader of the free world?

Give My Regards to Broadway

Due to Mr. Obama’s fascination with Abraham Lincoln, I have said, “please don’t let him go to any plays.”  But alas…..

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama landed in New York Saturday afternoon, and after taking a helicopter from JFK into Manhattan, drove up the West Side Highway, where the northbound lanes were shut down by police for their visit, past Ground Zero, into the Village for dinner at the Village’s Blue Hill restaurant. From there, they went north to Times Square, where they went to to see a production of “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone” at the Belasco Theater on West 44 Street.

Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest read a statement from Obama: “I am taking my wife to New York City because I promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished.”

Asked about the cost of the trip, which Republicans have criticized as indulgent, coming just ahead of the expected announcement of GM’s bankruptcy filing on Monday, Josh Earnest told pool reporter Dave Michaels of the Dallas Morning News, that he “didn’t anticipate being able to provide a cost estimate tonight.”

[…..]

After the play let out at about 11:30 p.m., the presidential motorcade went down Sixth Avenue, shut down by the NYPD, and onlookers packed onto the East side of the street cheered as the presidential motorcade passed as the Obamas headed back to JFK for a return flight to Washington.
