This week, we have the first lady, Michelle Obama, VS School Bus Driver
One concerned food service worker from Montana put it this way: “It’s completely flip-flopped in terms of portion size.” The “new federal guidelines require vegetables to comprise the largest portion of a student’s lunch, while the entrée is now being treated as a side dish.”
Another school food service worker said that “Two ounces of protein won’t cut it for high school athletes.” Maybe Michelle feels that if she can work out those impressive biceps on an empty stomach, high school athletes who need food-driven power to plow through those football dummies should quit complaining and toughen up.
And if your kid is starving, that could be the least of his worries. This lady bus driver decided to take a tip from Obama, and do a selfie of herself, and what she likes to do while driving the kids to and from school, she likes to drink beer:
The selfie, which was posted on Facebook shows, the driver for the Princeton City School District behind the wheel of her bus with her lips around a bottle of beer, WSYX reports.
The photo caused a brouhaha when parents and district officials saw it. The driver, whose name has not been released, was immediately fired by her employer, First Student Transportation.
Mmmmmm….they won’t release her name. Wonder why?
So…who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Or is it our first “Lady” who could care less if the kids of the nation eat bugs, meat, or anything for that matter. She’s on vacation in Aspen, hitting the slopes and eating at the finest restaurants on our dime, while her husband plays golf…in Palm Springs.
Which reminds me…I was once gazing at Marie Antoinette diamond earrings on display in the New York Museum, and some kid behind me was bugging me. And so I said to him….
“See those earrings?” And he looked. “They were in the pocket of Marie Antoinette when they cut her head off.:”
“You’re lying!” said the brat.
“No, I’m not. It says so right here. You know why they cut her head off?” I asked.
The kid laughed, and shook his head. I had finally got his attention. “Because she STARVED her own people.”
A lesson we should pass down to all our children.
Let’s face it: Michelle Obama is starving the school children of America, while her kids eat Pizza, burgers, and whatever they like.
So who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
By the way, this picture, is considered…”racist” So of course I posted it, to remind her:
‘Once upon a time….there was a queen….who starved her people…and she had diamonds…and furs….and…and….and…she…..’
“I would like to get rid of the homophobes, sexists, and racists in our audience. I know they’re out there and it really bothers me.” ― Kurt Cobain
(Good thing he doesn’t have to be bothered about it anymore.)
On the Daily Kos site today, I found an article trying to tell America that all those vitamins and supplements on the shelves at Walgreens and Walmarts are really just garbage. Placebos. Ginkgo Biloba especially. According to many, they do nothing and the government should get after them. They LIE on their labels.
I guess it takes one to know one.
The news that a New York state attorney general’s investigation found that the overwhelming majority of so-called “nutritional supplements” sold by some of the biggest retailers in the nation contained none of the actual ingredient they were supposed to be “supplementing” once again raises the question: Is the health supplement marketplace America’s most crooked industry?
You have to laugh at this: America’s most crooked industry?
The current White House holds that positions, and how dare you challenge it.
Shall we compare it to the food industry? Haven’t we been told that our soil was depleted ions ago, and so Monsanto personally genetically altered every seed, corn plant, tomato, lettuce, rice, wheat, and just about everything we eat?
How about those cows and chickens? Do you think Americans are fat because they are overloaded on hormones that are pumped into our meat in order to make them grow faster?
How about Fluoride? That’s a poison that some manufacturer had a byproduct, wanted a place to dump it, so the “government” said, well..dump it in the water!
And what’s all this stuff doing to our thyroids?
Hey, did vitamins make us a fat nation? Did that Ginkgo Biloba you take cause you to crave another Big Mac? How about when we found out Subway was putting plastic in the bread?
I can take any Ginkgo and it really helps. No kidding. Without it, halfway through even Moonlight Sonata I go blank. Sure, there might be some that are not what they say…so don’t buy them. It’s pretty simple. If it doesn’t work for you, then go to another brand. That’s the free market. Nobody has ever died from taken a vitamin C tablet.
You know who has the honor of being the most crooked industry in America?
Our government. They are being pressured by the big pharmaceuticals to put their big booted foot down on vitamins and supplements….you can’t patent natural herbs.
Not yet. They want to ‘regulate’ it all, just like the internet. Sen. Orrin Hatch, has been the industry’s champion in exempting themselves from FDA regulation
But nobodies always come through. Here’s a few responses to the article:
I Don’t Recall Ginko Destroying 25% of Humanity’s
Bill Clinton and Orrin Hatch for that 1994 law that altered federal requirements applicable to supplements and allowed such things as toxic ephedra to be on the market as a supplement ….
(It’s okay if it’s toxic. Our light bulbs are toxic. I’m starting to see a pattern here…hold me back.)
Powdered rice, beans, peas and wild carrots stuffed inside of a pretty red gelatin capsule would be a welcome change to the slop I’ve been working down my intestinal tract.
No kidding. Think about it. They have two whole isles filled with cereals’ and worthless snacks in every grocery store in the country.
Do you really think what they say is IN all that stuff is really there?
Nobody Wins when they try to take away my Ginkgo Biloba. I beginning to think they don’t WANT us to think.
On the other hand, maybe I’m… overdosing on biloba nonsense.
This week was a no-brainer. We have two contestants who SHOULD have won their respective contests, but blundered beyond comprehension.
It was the height of stupidity, the epitome of idiocy, moronic nirvana.
It was a mistake of monstrous and monumental proportion, the Great Wall of dumb surrounding the Grand Canyon of dumber.
It went down in flames, and it will go down in history, quite simply and simple-mindedly, as “The Call.”
It was, by acclamation and without argument outside the Seattle Seahawks brain trust, the most imbecilic, senseless, defenseless, half-witted, empty-headed, brain-dead call in the history of organized football – and every other sport known to man in the history of the world.
And then there’s France.
France, has the reputation of being number one in the world of fine cuisine. The French got that honor right after they got rid of the guillotines and gave the government back to the rich Kings, and put the chefs back to work.
But this week…the French LOST the international chef contest! In fact, it placed…
Get your forks ready…7th!
From the National Post:
PARIS — It is considered to have one of the finest cuisines in the world. But France faced gastronomic humiliation after it failed to make the podium on home soil in a global cooking championship.
Norway won this year’s gold medal in the Bocuse d’Or, a contest often described as the World Cup of chefs. France only managed to muster seventh place in the competition in which chefs must “demonstrate creativity, spontaneity and the mastery of their art”.
This is truly epic: America, land of chicken McNuggests, Whoppers, sloppy Joes, and onion rings, came in…second.
This could be an international crisis.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
How did our losers handle their defeat?
Nicolas Davouze, the main French Chef, who had high hopes for his “facon grenobloise and guinea fowl truffee petites farces bourgeoisis” said:
“Whatever happens, I have no regrets. I gave everything.”
Coach Carroll said:
“We were going to run the ball in to win the game, but not on that play. I didn’t want to waste a run play on their goal-line guys. It was a clear thought, but it didn’t work out right. The guy (Butler) made a play that no one would have thought he could make.”
(Evidently the ONLY person in the world who didn’t imagine what would happen was Pete Carroll. )
Who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
The French have held the tradition of making god awful crepes stuffed with cream crudités a la fish for ages, and will continue to win, all they need to do is get new judges next year.
Pat Carroll’s “call’ on the other hand, will NEVER be forgotten. Not even in France. Not even while dining out at the finest restaurants in all the world, right now, at this VERY moment people are eating their dinners and saying—-CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT CALL?
Congratulations Pete! You may have lost the Superbowl but you have won the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week!
I suggest if any of us happen to run into Pete, we all buy him a drink, and suggest he take a nice long trip to France, where he will feel…more at home where he can share a heartfelt cri de coeur. (cry in French.)
There’s always next year.
-That there is a consequence to all of Obama’s vacation costs. Yes…simply because of Congress, Obama had to fly BACK to Washington D.C., after arriving in Hawaii and joining his friends for golf…only to find out on the 18th hole that because of Congress’s ineptitude at coming to a consensus on TAXES…Obama had to fly back to D.C. and get it done…even though he knew before flying out, that he should have waited to join his family after this tax business was done. But, I guess he just couldn’t wait.
SO…because Obama couldn’t wait..guess what? Due to lack of money, Georgia ran out of food stamps! Children are starving! Not only that, but this other guy (see video below) spent his last wad of government money on getting his teeth whitened, never suspecting that since Obama spent his food stamp money on his vacation in Hawaii…he would have to actually WORK at getting his fair share.
Dialing the phone is beyond what we should expect of our good citizens.
That is why, Obama should not be allowed any more vacations. If I were a food stamp recipient, I’d be furious at President Obama for NOT thinking of the children. Really…
(PS..to find out where the money is actaully going…click on the lady with the big earrings in the window above…FOOD RANT. She is witness to the criminals working for Obama’s vacations. )
Nobody Gets Email
I have a great friend who loves to cook and eat…and why she sent me this, I have NO idea, because I’m always eating McDonalds. Here’s a take from what is actually in some of the food we eat:
McDonald’s admitted that the l-cysteine (That’s hair or duck feathers) is used in its Baked Hot Apple Pie, as well as its Wheat Roll and Warm Cinnamon Roll, was of the duck-feather variety. Many other fast-food joints rely on l-cysteine in bakery products as well.
Silicon dioxide, also known as silica (also known as sand!), is used to make glass, optical fibers, ceramics, and cement. Oh, and chili. Used as an anti-caking agent, it is often added to processed beef and chicken to prevent clumping, and is listed in the ingredient panels for chili from both Wendy’s and Taco Bell.
Processed wood pulp, known as cellulose, is used in everything from cheese to salad dressing, from muffins to strawberry syrup. McDonalds, Taco Bell, KFC, Sonic, Pizza Hut, Wendy’s, Arby’s, Jack in the Box, and many others include cellulose in their repertoire.
4. Silly Putty
Eight-syllable ingredients make sense for Silly Putty, but French fries? Sure enough, dimethylpolysiloxane, a form of silicone used in cosmetics and Silly Putty, is also found in many a fast-food fried thing. It is the secret ingredient that keeps fryer oil from foaming. McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish and French fries have it, as do Wendy’s Natural-Cut Fries With Sea Salt. In fact, most fast-food items that bathe in a deep-fat fryer are imbued with a hint of dimethylpolysiloxane.
Petroleum-derived preservatives (TBHQ) Tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) is made from compounds derived from petroleum and finds a home in cosmetic and skincare products, varnish, lacquers and resins – and processed food. McDonald’s, for example, uses it in 18 products ranging from their Fruit and Walnut Salad to Griddle Cakes to McNuggets.
(Which is why we MUST drill for oil here….McDonalds would go under if we went to war with Iran.)
Meet carminic acid, a commonly used red food coloring that comes from the dried, crushed bodies of female scale insects called cochineal. Variously known as Cochineal, Cochineal Extract, Carmine, Crimson Lake, Natural Red 4, C.I. 75470, E120 – it is used in a wide variety of products ranging from some meat, sausages, processed poultry products, marinades, bakery products, toppings, cookies, deserts, icings, pie fillings, jams, preservs, gelatins, juices, drinks, dairy products, sauces and dessert products
It is commonly referred to as “pink slime.” Looking more like frosting than pureed meat and bone bits, the FDA defines mechanically separated poultry (MSP) as “a paste-like and batter-like poultry product produced by forcing bones, with attached edible tissue, through a sieve or similar device under high pressure to separate bone from the edible tissue.”
(Sounds pretty much like most of Congress, with the exception of Al Gore who would be called Green Slime.)
Okay. if you want more go here.
I might try adding a bit of sand to my chili, or some Silly Putty to my fryer.
Nobody thought reading about Monsanto was bad….the genetically altered strawberry that I was repulsed by is starting to look pretty good.
(Uh..Thanks to Mona, I think. )
