So why in God's name are we allowing Michelle Obama decide what goes in school lunches? She holds no government position. Laura Bush wasn't allowed to impose forced reading.

Along these lines, Laura Bush has supported numerous government and private sector efforts to promote reading and education. She has been a strong advocate and defender against critics of the Administration's No Child Left Behind Act signed by the President in January 2002, providing federal funds to the local level to recruit new teachers, improve teacher training, or raise teacher pay.

And along these lines true Conservatives loathed the Bush family for their leftist unconstitutional practices.

rbilleaud. Michelle Obama didn't impose anything. It was the USDA please read the facts. She simply endorsed it. You can get the facts here: http://www.usatoday.com/yourlife/food/diet-nutrition/2011-01-12-schoollunch13_ST_N.htm

She nor the USDA has any authority over the matter. They are usurping power and violating the Constitution. I reckon she has sworn an oath to uphold the US Constitution (when she signed up to vote). She needs to uphold her oath.

Michelle Obama doesn't have authority over the matter. The USDA school lunch program has been around since 1946. She is just saying, "Hey let's add some nutrition to it." If so many people hate the lunch program then why aren't more people trying to end it? If you read the posts, people who are complaining want the govt lunch program and don't want to pack their kids lunches. They just want it to go back to serving junk which too stupid to even believe.

And by the way, the USDA were the ones who changed it. She just said as a mother she thinks its a good idea so she promoted it. Her kids don't eat public lunches... you really think she cares? It's just crazy that just because parents would rather pay $1.50 a day for lunch instead of making lunch that a child should eat food filled with fillers not fit for an animal. Just because they used to make things taste good by covering it with grease and sugar doesn't mean your kids were getting anything nutritional out of it. If anything it's better for them to go hungry than eat a processed meat sandwich filled with preservatiives, enriched fake flour bread, high sodium and fillers. People are crazy if they think that was better.

Nullify,
The National School Lunch Act, enacted in 1946, provides funding to schools for food programs. It isn't required and schools don't have to take the money. But if they do, there are guidelines to what can be served.

What's wrong with that?

She was a lawyer for crying out loud! She ought to know not to support an unconstitutional act!

She should up and decry the USDA program, not promote it! That is what a person who upholds the Constitution would do.

Give me a break! It all happened since Obama was elected. What nonsense! You can post that link until hell freezes over, but we know the truth.

Oh, yes, forgive us. Of course, FLOTUS has absolutely NO influence on government policies. She's just there to look good in $700 dresses, babble about how WONDERFUL her husband is, and take wildly expensive vacations with her girlfriends.
In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
