A state inspector ordered a full lunch for the little girl because her lunch from home did not contain a vegetable. She was allowed to have both, but was too frightened to eat any of her lunch from home and ate only the chicken nuggets.
Let’s take a brief time-out here to compare the two. The lunch from home had a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, potato chips, and apple juice. The school lunch consisted of chicken nuggets, milk, a fruit, and vegetable. Yes siree, that child’s mother sure doesn’t know what she’s doing for her own child. She ought to know that the government always knows better. Always. If you don’t believe me, just ask them.
Now my question is this: since when are chicken nuggets healthy? If the government knows so much and can do such a superior job in feeding our children, then why do they not seem to know how unhealthy chicken nuggets are? I saw a commenter on a Facebook post about this describe chicken nuggets as “deep fried floor sweepings”. That is a fairly accurate description. It’s made of chicken parts that can’t be used for anything else and it’s over-processed. The unhealthy nature of processed foods is well documented.
The supposed justification was the home lunch did not contain a vegetable. Why then was a complete lunch ordered? The mother of the girl has apparently been fighting this battle for quite some time. She has repeatedly told the school not to feed her child anything that does not come from the lunch she brings. Yet, they keep doing it. The mother has said that her child, being just four years old, does not like vegetables. Her mother has also said that she feeds her child vegetables at home because the little girl will only eat them under close supervision. Kinda normal for a four-year-old, but it still seems to tee off the government because she’s not eating the official, approved, calibrated, homogenized, certified government issue food. After all, such rebellion could lead to anarchy.
And, did you notice something. Whereas this little girl would have eaten all of her lunch – turkey, cheese, bread, banana, and apple juice – all of it went in the trash. And all of the official, approved, calibrated, homogenized, certified government issue lunch, except for the chicken nuggets, all went in the trash. So, before government intervention, child was eating food from most of the food groups. After government intervention, one of the food groups. Good job Big Brother! This little girl will look back and thank you one day, I’m sure.
Anyway, REPRESENTATIVE DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (her Facebook page HERE), chairman of the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE, is recycling old accusations. Representative Schultz, on January 11, 2012, blamed the Tea Party movement for the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords last year by nut-job Jared Lee Loughner last year. Apparently she turned a blind eye, as the left routinely does, to the facts about Loughner that came out later. He has no political affiliation whatsoever. His best friend Zach Osler, said, “(Loughner) did not watch TV; he disliked the news; he didn’t listen to political radio; he didn’t take sides; he wasn’t on the Left; he wasn’t on the Right.” (SOURCE: I know Wikipedia can be a flawed source, but this entry is well source and footnoted. That’s why I used it this time). Loughner is an atheist. Loughner’s list of favorite books ranged from Mein Kampf to the Communist Manifesto. Loughner is drawn to unorthodox political ideologies, but due to his mental problems, is not able to “reasonably sustain any of them” (SOURCE). Loughner is a diagnosed schizophrenic (SOURCE).
I don’t think, though, you will hear Representative Wasserman-Schultz or any other leftists making such comparisons. As we get closer to this fall’s Presidential election, look for the attacks from the left to get much uglier and dirtier.
And the liberal left talks about how crazy Tea Party members are? No Tea Party members put their children on railroad tracks with a train coming, or nothing even close.
