Eat as I say, not as I do

First Lady, Michelle Obama, seems to have a serious obsession with trying to control what we eat. Too bad that doesn't carry over to her own family.

First, chuck the ol' food pyramid folks and check out what's on your plate now:

Seems healthy enough (too much grain perhaps?), but tell me where this meal fits on the plate:

There is your president, yesterday in Toledo, Ohio, scarfing down two chili dogs and french fries. Do the fries count as a vegetable?

Remember folks, the rules only apply to little people like us, not the royal couple in the White House.

Then of course, there is my oft-repeated inquiry. Where in the Constitution does the Executive Branch (through the USDA, which produced the plate chart with over $2 million of our tax dollars) get the Constitutional authority to even deign to tell me or my family how we should eat? C'mon now, cite me the Article, Section, and Clause.

This imperial federal government of ours, and the hypocritical elitist prigs who run it, make me sick to my stomach.

I'm in total agreement with you on this. I'm so sick of snobs telling me what I should be doing.

When health care is a "right", it will be an "obligation" for you to eat "correctly" so as to minimize the cost to the public treasury.

And we have ways of making you meet your obligations.

Wow.. could this post be any more stupid?
For one thing, this is not a rule it is a guidance, just as the old food pyramid was. Nobody is punished for not obeying.
For another thing nobody has EVER said the the food pyramid, or the new food plate applies to every meal.

And in what countries that DO have healthcare as a right is there an obligation to eat correctly?

Mr Bluebird: Where you uspet when Mrs Bush had programmes encouraging literacy?

W.R. Chandler said...

Are you saying that Mrs. Bush is illiterate?

I notice the cowardly posters who throw out the insults are almost always anonymous.

Yes. I very specifically said that Mrs Bush was illiterate. That is exactly what I said. But just not in this universe.

In your efforts to be cute and sarcastic you are making no sense whatsoever. Thanks for visiting.
