Michelle Obama Wages Jihad Against Cafeterias


obama-michelleThe first lady is continuing her attack on the childhood battle of the bulge. She is proposing today a new set of rules on the types of foods and beverages that can be advertised in schools.

Under the new regulations, high-caloric product logos cannot be on products, vending machines, or posters in schools.

  1. Who gives her the power to make any changes? She wasn’t elected by anybody. She’s only the wife. Why does the School board have to listen to her?

  2. As long as all her own meals have the same limits. Any state meal she attends should only serve her foods that are the same as what she forces on others.

  3. reply to comment 1:
    You clearly are not working for a better future. This is the FIRST LADY. They are clearly a priority in their initiatives especially when the public interest is at stake. Are you really a Jew who has higher learning or just a pocket of lost reason. Poor life.

  4. She is a good person doing good work here. I worked for a number of major CPG companies and they pay handsomely to market junk to kids in schools. Its dangerous stuff and needs to end.

    You may not like the president, but his wife is a very good person.

    Matzav, please change this headline. What’s with the word jihad?

  5. If we treated eating as the holy act it is supposed to be — why, we are supposed to make blessings before and after — there would be no opposition to Ms. Obama’s efforts to improve nutrition, nor to the word jihad. Would we cared more about what we ate beyond the food simply being kosher. We would live longer and be healthier.
