Bits and Pieces
MO is not having a good year, not at all. More schools are dropping out of the food police program she instituted to save all the kid’s fat behinds. The waste is in the billions and those food programs are not covered by government grants or largesse. Those lunch programs have to be paid for by people buying the lunches. So, district after district is turning down government reimbursements to save money and stop waste. MO said she will keep “fighting” for those healthy lunches which are making the kids go hungry. Adding insult to injury, the second largest school district in Illinois is tossing their federally mandated rules and actually will be feeding the kids what they like. MO is just “shocked”.
Hummus is too fatty, pretzels are too salty. Even hard-boiled eggs and yogurt don’t make the cut.
Those restrictions and others imposed on schools through the revamped “healthier” National School Lunch Program convinced officials in Illinois’ second largest school district to forfeit nearly $1 million in federal lunch aid to serve students food they want to eat, rather than what the government tells them to, CBS reports.
“So far so good. The meals, as you’ve seen, look fantastic, and there’s a lot of excitement,” District 214 Associate Superintendent Cathy Johnson told the news station as officials recently unveiled their new menu.
The federal “healthier” school lunch overhaul, championed by First Lady Michelle Obama, has been a boondoggle for public schools across the country. The tightened restrictions, intended to combat childhood obesity, have driven more than 1 million students away from school lunches and created over $1 billion per year in food waste since they were implemented in 2012.
21st century liberal feminists are so destructive and “needy”. They are a pathetic lot seeking to get “Uncle Sugar” (also known as the American taxpayer) to pay for all their needs and wants. They act like a bunch of little princesses, constantly demanding special treatment whether deserved or not. Their “war on women” meme resembles more of a war on men than any fight for equality. The feminists sit back and do nothing about the real war on women, the trafficking of young girls as sex slaves, the real rape culture of Islam, the degradation of teen pregnancy and its catastrophic results for those girls who will remain uneducated and living on welfare for the rest of their lives. Debbie Downer decided a sitting Governor (Scot Walker) was guilty of domestic violence and said he is “dragging women back by their hair”. Maybe she should take a walk in these women’s and girl’s shoes.
Arab and Muslim governments, vocal on the threat ISIS poses to regional stability, have been virtually silent on ISIS’s systemic degradation, abuse, and humiliation of women. To the men of ISIS, women are an inferior race, to be enjoyed for sex and be discarded, or to be sold off as slaves.
From ISIS-captured territory in Syria, we saw a photograph of a line of women, covered from head to toe and tied to one another by a rope, as they were being led to a makeshift slave market. Little girls, who were going to school and playing with dolls before ISIS fighters arrived at their doorstep, were married off to men many times their age. ISIS set up marriage bureaus in captured Syrian towns to recruit virgins and widows to marry fighters, and also called on fellow jihadists in other countries to recruit brides for the fighters and send them to Syria. It is hardly likely that these “marriages” were based on consent, as is required in Islam. Where women are concerned, consent does not appear to exist in the lexicon of ISIS fighters.
Where the hell are the grown ups?
