If you love children, you need to vote for Romney. Obama hates children and they are starving across the country because he doesn't care. The meals at school are all the food a lot of kids get in a day. Now they aren't getting enough to eat. Sad that the president hates children.

Complaints Mount Against Michelle Obamaís New Lunch Menu

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.

"I know a lot of my friends who are just drinking a jug of milk for their lunch. And they are not getting a proper meal," middle school student Samantha Gortmaker told Keloland.com .

Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, itís not pleasing students.

Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market - for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to SouthCoastToday.com .

Nancy Carvalho, director of food services for New Bedford Public Schools, was quoted as saying that hummus and black bean salads have been tough sells in elementary cafeterias. That means even smaller children are going through the day fighting hunger pains, which can never be considered a good thing.

One government official tried to put the blame on the students.
"One thing I think we need to keep in mind as kids say they're still hungry is that many children aren't used to eating fruits and vegetables at home, much less at school. So it's a change in what they are eating. If they are still hungry, it's that they are not eating all the food that's being offered," USDA Deputy Undersecretary Janey Thornton was quoted as saying.

Ms. Thornton just put her finger on the problem. The government is trying to impose a new diet that children are not accustomed to. Itís not reasonable to expect them to either eat what the government deems healthy or go hungry.

Many will opt to go hungry, and thatís the governmentís fault.

I wish we had a LOVING president - one that didn't starve kids.

I bet it won't be long before they say that people on food stamps can't buy sodas or any junk food, and red meat is bad for you too - fresh veggies and milk will be the only thing you can buy if obama gets re-elected.

Truth you have to understand, liberals always think they know better than you how to raise your kids. They are really closet tyrants and dictators on power trips. After all in their world they are the "smart ones".

And it won't be long before food stamps will be greatly restricted.

You haven't seen anything yet, just wait until obamacare gets going! Down the road you will have the government saying: no sodas, no smoking, no red meat, you cannot own a firearm in your home it endangers your health--comply or no health care, etc... fill in the blank and understand nothing is too radical for these junior Stalin's.

School lunches are usually bad, now they are worse by Moocheles meddling. How can an athlete requiring 4,000 calories a day function on 750 calories? Again one size fits all government idiocy.

And remember it's for the children...

-check the school lunch program budgets under Reagan it was not cut. Cuts in proposed increases are not true cuts in a budget line.

-NOTE: Reagan is not in office. He's dead, how does this contribute to the slop Moochelle is attempting to pass off as food?

-BTW Moochelles daughters got pizza today at their private school for lunch, what did yours get? Tree bark and brussel sprouts?

Wrong...school lunch programs WERE cut drastically, as "Ayatollah" Reagan turned it over to STATES, many of which had inusfficent funds to cover it! Just becaseu a presdient is "dead" does not mean he is irrelavant, as many many of Reagan's neo-fascist policies are the root of many of problems we have today in US!

VOTE 3RD PARTY IN '12!

-Funny I have yet to see a government program ever cut a penny. So the states control the school lunch programs, then how come the USDA dictates the menus? You can only dictate the rules if you are paying the bills.

-Yeah-yeah Reagan caused it all. I am shocked that it wasn't Bush this time around.

-I am not happy with either party, but currently voting republican is the only way to assure obama is sent packing. Too much is at stake this time around to vote third party.

Here is the definition of fascism:
a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

Sounds like obama to me!

By the way, Reagan is not running this year and Romney is NOTHING like Reagan.

Why do you think obama hates kids so much? I saw where pizza was on the menu at the swanky, exclusive private school that his kids attend. Let them eat cake!

That's because you are brain dead. Obama is the one who wants a centralized economy controlled by the government. He has taken over the auto and financial industries and given another 4 years there is no telling what else he will try to take over. Anyone who opposes anything he does is immediately branded a racist and demonized, just look at people like you and how you act when anyone dares to question his fascist policies.

So, why do liberals and obama hate children and why are they starving them?

Last year the USDA spent $11 billion dollars, that's $11,000,000,000.00
on the school lunch program. If the kids don't like the food menus, and won't eat the food served, then that $11,000,000,000.00
is WASTED money. It does not matter if the government spends a trillon dollars a year feeding school kids, if they don't like it, they will not eat it.
The old saying about a horse and water works well here.
You can set food in front of a child, but you can't force him to eat. Not even Michelle Obama!

Add this on top of the $56 billion, yes that's $56,000,000,000.00
spent last year on food stamps, and you can see that if children go hungry, someone other than a republican is at fault.

I fed my children without a single food stamp and without a single free lunch, and never made more than $10 an hour. It's called responsiblity. What comes first, cable tv, internet, cell phones or my babies' bellies?
