Well, no, not really.  But it seems we’re headed in that direction though.  In Raeford, North Carolina, a four-year-old had brought her lunch from home to school.  It just so happened government food police were on hand in the cafeteria inspecting the lunches of all the students.  When they spotted this little girl with a lunch from home, our tax dollars sprang into action. 

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.

Facts Are Stubborn Things

Posted by Macon Phillips

Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, “facts are stubborn things.”

Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to “uncover” the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.

In this video, Linda Douglass, the communications director for theWhite House’s Health Reform Office, addresses one example that makes it look like the President intends to “eliminate” private coverage, when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them. He has even proposed eight consumer protections relating specifically to the health insurance industry.

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to

As I said in a previous post, the Obama administration is now in damage control mode. All the polls out there, scientific or informal, show there is very little support this health care fiasco. Now they’re wanting citizens to turn in their neighbors. There is absolutely no logical reason to put out such a plea other than they want to know specifically who opposes them on this issue. Well, if there are very many who cooperate and rat out their friends, neighbors, and fellow American citizens, they’re going to have a very, very long list that will amount to the majority of Americans. Earlier the Department of Homeland Security classified conservatives as “right-wing extremists” who are threats to domestic security. Now this. It seems I’m making a very elite list of American patriots. I figure they are probably already watching my blog, so that’s OK. Watch on, Washington. I’ll keep on helping you with that troublesome transparency thing.

Now, take the time to visit Ralph Petersen’s blog by clicking HERE. He writes WELL MEANING GENTLEMEN WITH DIFFERENT IDEAS and is a real stand-up American. He wrote a letter to President Obama voluntarily reporting himself as being opposed to Obamacare which included his blog address! I’d like to see the face of whichever of Obama’s aides read this one! Mr. Petersen, my hat’s off to you!
