Michelle Obama is catching a lot of grief and criticism over her government school lunch plan. Seems that in Kansas, some of the students are complaining they aren’t getting enough to feel full after eating.
“Some Kansas students and at least one political leader say new school lunch guidelines aimed at limiting calories and encouraging good nutrition are having an unintended consequence: Hungry kids,” McClatchy reports. The report points to this parody video of kids complaining about the new lunch program established by First Lady Obama.
The kids at Sidwell Friends, the elite private school the Obama kids attend in Washington, D.C. probably aren’t complaining about their pizza today.
According to the school’s website, pepperoni pizza is on the menu today:
French Mushroom Soup
Classic Caesar Salad
Boston Bean Salad
Pepperoni Flatbread Pizza
Variety Flatbread Pizza
Variety Veggie Flatbread Pizzas
Sauteed Local Greens
I wonder did the Obama kids take a special healthy bagged lunch instead?- JRoycroft
September 6, 2012 – I haven’t had much to say about the RNC or the DNC because it’s all so predictable. I have only one concern, that Obama is defeated and we can all get back to living in our Republic, not a Democracy. I will say a few things about Michelle though. She’s a really good speaker….and bullshit artist. Sorta runs in the family I suppose.
So Michelle Obama says she came from nothing? Fraser Robinson, Michelle’s dad, was a pump operator at the Chicago city water plant. Back in the 70′s he was earning a salary of about $50,000 a year. That’s equivalent to $282,000 today when you adjust for inflation. Michelle’s mother, Marian Robinson, was a secretary at the Spiegel’s catalog store. So no, Michelle Obama didn’t come from a rich family, but she sure as hell didn’t come from a struggling family like she wants you to believe. I suppose that’s the story that the Obama’s followers want to hear. Whatever works to lower yourself to moocher standards. Oh, and lets not leave out her ruler husband. In her speech she talked about Barry -
“When Barack was a senator and presidential candidate, to me he was still the guy who picked me up for our dates in a car that was so rusted out I could actually see the pavement going by in a hole in the passenger side door. He was the guy whose proudest possession was a coffee table he found in a dumpster, and whose only pair of decent shoes was a half size too small.
Really? Back then, Obama was working for a law firm, and his mother was working in a bank. Struggling? What exactly is the Obama’s definition of struggling? Obama has written about how his family went on month-long vacations to national parks and flew there from Hawaii. Poor? I think not.
Obama went to Punahou, the top private prep school in Hawaii. Michelle and Barry attended elite schools. Michelle went to Whitney Young. Whitney Young was a public magnet school for Chicago’s upper class. Later on they were both accepted to Ivy League schools even though they apparently were lacking in the credential department. Michelle has admitted that she was accepted into Princeton on an affirmative action ticket.
You want to talk about poverty? How about we talk about Obama’s half brother, you know, the one still living in a hut who recently asked a stranger for help to get medical care because he knew Barry wouldn’t help him. I think it was a reporter that helped him with a few bucks. Look it up yourself.
Michelle talked about how they aren’t into a lavish life style and don’t care about material things, unless of course it’s being paid for by tax payers. How many expensive vacations did the Obama’s take? How many separate vacations did they take in separate planes at taxpayer expense? Hollywood fundraisers, etc. What is her definition of lavish?
And never mind about the twisted tales that Bill “BJ” Clinton preached. What a great man to have introducing the nominee at the DNC. Bill Clinton, womanizer, adulterer, rapist. Yea, what a nice, honest guy to have on hand representing the Democrat Party.
How about a special tribute to good old Ted Kennedy, the drunken coward who left Mary Jo Kopechne to drown after crashing his car into the Chappaquiddick. I wonder how her parents feel about that?
I could go on and on about the bullshit which spewed from Michelle Obama’s mouth and the other liars club members the other night, but quite frankly, I may puke if I keep going.
I won’t be watching the Ruler’s acceptance speech, nor do I give a rat’s ass what he has to say. I don’t need to hear his lies, class warfare, false promises, sharing the wealth, living in a damn village, and it’s still Bush’s fault. All I need to know is that our deficit is over $16 TRILLION, there are over 23 million folks un-employed, not counting the ones who gave up after 99 weeks of un-employment checks. It’s been 4 years and absolutely nothing positive has been done, yet we are to believe that 4 more years of the same will magically improve our lives.
And some of you will still vote for that devout Marxist. Just how damn stupid and ignorant are you people? -JRoycroft
Note: I had quoted Mr Fraser’s salary at about $50,000 per year based on my Wikipedia research. That information has since been removed after Rush Limbaugh made that information public on his radio program.

April 26, 2012 – That’s right folks – Queen Michelle Obama cost tax payers $467,585 for her 2010 Spain spending spree. This in a report released from the watch dog group Judicial Watch.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said it took his group “two years and a lawsuit to get these documents out of the Obama administration.”
“It is hypocritical for President Obama to fire GSA officials for wasteful conference spending, while his family went on a luxury vacation in the Costa del Sol Spain that cost taxpayers nearly half a million dollars,” Fitton said.
Actually this story should come as no great surprise to anyone. After all, the entire mission of the Obama regime from day one has been one of outrageous spending at the expense of American tax payers. They live their lives completely opposite of how they want us to live. Punish those greedy rich folks and keep the common man from achieving the American dream. Meanwhile, Marxist Obama and his spoiled wife continue to run our country into bankruptcy.
Just a few more months left of this disgusting disaster and we can all get on with our lives. We will survive. -JRoycroft

February 25, 2012 - Michelle Obama joins the class warfare bandwagon and questions how the rich can feel good about themselves while others struggle. She preached her little sermon to a crowd of about 300 supporters who payed $300-$10,000 to a fund raising event in Ohio.
Michelle reminded her crowd of wealthy folks about how her husband had been raised by a single parent, with the help of his grandmother – understands the problems of struggling families “because he has lived them.”
I was just wondering, does Barrack Obama’s brother still live in a shack in Kenya? If so, would Obama’s Marxist plan to spread the wealth extend to family living outside the United States? -JRoycroft

February 20, 2012 - It’s good to be Queen Michelle Obama, especially when taxpayers do such a fine job of taking care of her luxurious life style at a time when most Americans are trying to make ends meet.
But barely a month after returning from a luxury Christmas break in Hawaii Michelle Obama is on holiday again at the exclusive Colorado ski resort of Aspen. It’s her 16th vacation holiday since her husband Ruler Obama took office.
The Queen of luxury vacations: THE COSTLY TRIPS
SPAIN: AUGUST 2010
- Michelle Obama and 40 of her friends paid for personal expenses, such as hotels and meals themselves.
- U.S. taxpayers paid for the 68-strong security detail, personal staff and use of presidential jet Air Force Two.
- Payment for the secret service team ran at around $281 each – nearly $98,000 for the duration of the summer break.
- Use of Air Force Two comes in at $149,900 for the round trip, not including time on the ground.
- Mrs Obama’s personal staff, of which there were an unknown number, should also be taken into account
HAWAII: DECEMBER 2010
According to the Hawaii Reporter the costs were:
- $63,000 on an early flight bringing Mrs Obama and the children to Hawaii ahead of the President
- $1,000,000 on Mr Obama’s return trip from Washington on Air Force One

Michelle still has plenty of time to plan for her next vacation … Why not just do it up right and finish the year with a round the world holiday adventure. I’m sure the taxpayers can fork out a few more bucks for that one, hell it’s not like we have any say in the matter. -JRoycroft

November 14, 2011- Recently, I’ve noticed a particular Facebook page that puts extreme effort into trashing the liberal agenda. I suppose you could figure that one out yourself by their title, “Americans Against the Liberal Agenda.” That’s cool with me, however I take issue with the manner in which they are doing it.
This page has a group of followers, some of who take everything they see and read on Facebook as fact and hard evidence of liberal wrong doings. What better place to put out your opinions than Facebook? Especially if you have a catchy page title and post any and everything you can find on the internet that mirrors your own opinions – even if some of the crap you post is a total fabrication. It’s easy to get a story wrong, and a little research goes a long way, but if something you know is untrue when you post it, it’s a lie.
Twice now within the past month this Facebook page has given out bad information which included photographs in an effort to mislead it’s followers. Both times I called them on it and neither time did they take them down or even verify or question what I told them. I submitted to these amateurs hard evidence, which is something they apparently don’t rely on.
One of their stories showed a photograph taken which showed an Occupy Wall Street protester defecated on an American flag. That story was false, a lie. The photograph they used was from a Portland protest several years ago. It didn’t happen at OWS. I even gave them the link and posted it on their page. Of course there it sits, ignored.
More recently, a photograph of the Obama’s at the “Hoops For Troops” gathering on Veterans Day. They posted a photograph of Michelle Obama, pointing out that she was not placing her hand over her heart during the playing of our national anthem. Guess what folks, it took me less than 2 minutes to find a photograph of Michelle standing there, with a smile on her face, hand over her heart. I posted that link and guess what…No questions, no response.
If you want to be taken seriously try being honest. In my opinion, you folks that allow faked photographs and push intentional lies about anyone on your Facebook page are no better than those you are trashing. Those of us who take the time to research our stories and genuinely care about defending our constititional rights don’t need rank amateurs out there giving us all a bad name. Here’s a piece of advice for you folks at “Americans Against the Liberal Agenda” that would serve you folks well and give you some sort of credibility before you decide to post a new story:
- Do some damn research on your stories
- Verify your information before you post it
- Remove material proven to be false
- Learn how to identify “doctored” photographs
- Stop believing every freakin thing you see, read, or hear in ANY MEDIA!
- Just because it was reported somewhere else does not make it a true story
Oh, and for those fools who believe everything they post. - You’re a bunch of mindless idiots who need to get some sort of a life. Please do us all a big favor and stay away from the voting booth next November. It was uneducated fools like you that got us into the mess we are currently in.
Fight the Liberal agenda, but damn it, try to do it honestly! – JRoycroft
Lets get something clear…I have no problem with our president taking a vacation. Does not matter to me one bit. Reason being is that the president is never free from the crap going on in the world or the U.S. Any president who is on “vacation” never really is. With that being said, I do take issue with the Barry and Michelle’s bad decision to take separate flights to Martha’s Vineyard – Never mind what a total PR screw up this was. Michelle Obama and daughters, who arrived just four hours earlier, were also travelling from Washington, but took a specially designed military aircraft. Not to mention they would also have had their own motorcade from the airport to the vacation residence.
FIRST LADY OF LUXURY TRAVEL: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE OBAMAS’ LAVISH GETAWAYS OVER THE PAST 12 MONTHS
GIRLS’ TRIP TO SPAIN: AUGUST 2010
The exact cost is unclear as Mrs Obama and her 40 friends footed many personal expenses, such as hotels and meals themselves.
But the U.S. taxpayer would have paid for the First Lady’s 68-strong security detail, personal staff, and use of presidential jet Air Force Two.
Per diems for the secret service team runs at around $281 each – nearly $98,000 for the length of the summer break.
Use of Air Force Two, the Air Force version of a 757, comes in at $149,900 for the round trip. This does not include time on the ground.
Mrs Obama’s personal staff, of which there are an unknown amount and might cost considerably more per day, should also be taken into account.
CHRISTMAS BREAK IN HAWAII: DECEMBER 2010
According to the Hawaii Reporter, the bill for the $1.5m trip included:
- $63,000 on an early flight bringing Mrs Obama and the children to Hawaii ahead of the President.
- $1,000,000 on Mr Obama’s return trip from Washington on Air Force One.
- $38,000 for the ‘Winter White House’ beach property rental.
- $16,000 to rent nearby homes for Secret Service and Navy Seals.
- $134,000 for 24 White House staff to stay at the Moana Hotel.
- $251,000 in police overtime.
- $10,000 for an ambulance to be on hand at all times
SKI TRIP TO VAIL: FEBRUARY 2011

SUMMER HOLIDAY ON MARTHA’S VINEYARD: AUGUST 2011
The Blue Heron Farm estate, where the Obama family are currently staying, rents for about $50,000 a week.
According to U.S. News and World Report, the Coast Guard is required to keep ships floating near the property, the presidential helicopter and jet remain at the ready and security agents will be on 24-hour duty.

May 10, 2011 - First Lady Michelle Obama scheduled a poetry evening for Wednesday, and she’s invited several poets, one of whom is a successful Chicago poet, rapper, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, AKA “Common.” Lynn is very controversial, because his poetry includes threats to shoot police and at least one passage calling for the “burning” of then-President George W. Bush.
In comparison, back in 2003 First Lady Laura Bush held a poetry evening, and invited several poets to reprise the work of Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes and Walt Whitman. Although none of those poets had urged violence against a president, Bush canceled the event after leftest poets protested and threatened to disrupt her event.
Oh and by the way, trash comes in all colors, this one just happens to be black. Some of you will call me a racist for posting this and I frankly couldn’t care less.
Michelle Obama soils our White House with this trashy sample of human debris. It’s as much my house as anyone’s which gives me the right to voice my outrage that the Obama’s have stooped this low. It’s it not enough that we are suffering through some of the hardest economic times in the history of our country because of this administration, and now we have to sit by watching our White House cater to the likes of this gangster rapper.
What goes through a persons mind when they decide it’s ok to invite this creep into our sacred house? Will someone please tell me that Michelle Obama is just so damn ignorant that she has no clue what this punk is all about. What other excuse could she possibly have. Is she really that ignorant? I wonder do they allow their daughters to listen to this garbage.
So much for good moral character and family values coming out of the White House. “There goes the neighborhood!” Yea, I said that. Deal with it.
Apparently Lynn has urged his followers to react to websites criticizing his performance by posting links or comments. I say bring it on bro! This blogger wants my readers to see the illiterate comments made by his followers. At least we can get some kind of laugh out of their ghetto remarks.
Here is a small sample of the garbage that Michelle Obama’s guest has written:
A Letter to the Law
Dem boy wanna talk… [indistinguishable]
Whatcha gon do if ya got one gun?
I sing a song for the hero unsung
with faces on the mural of the revolution
No looking back cos’ in back is what’s done
Tell the preacher, God got more than one son
Tell the law, my Uzi weighs a ton
I walk like a warrior,
from them I won’t run
On the streets, they try to beat us like a drum
In Cincinnati, another brother hung
A guinea won’t see the sun
with his family stung
They want us to hold justice
but you handed me none
The same they did to Kobe and Michael Jackson
make them the main attraction
Turn around and attack them
Black gem in the rough
You’re rugged enough
Use your mind and nine-power, get the government touch
Them boys chat-chat on how him pop gun
I got the black strap to make the cops run
They watching me, I’m watching them
Them dick boys got a lock of cock in them
My people on the block got a lot of pok* in them
and when we roll together
we be rocking them to sleep
No time for that, because there’s things to be done
Stay true to what I do so the youth dream come
from project building
Seeing a fiend being hung
With that happening, why they messing with Saddam?
Burn a Bush cos’ for peace he no push no button
Killing over oil and grease
no weapons of destruction
How can we follow a leader when this a corrupt one
The government’s a g-unit and they might buck young black people
Black people In the urban area one
I hold up a peace sign, but I carry a gun.
Michelle Obama Visits An Atlanta School Wednesday For Photo Ops. One Picture Tells A Different Story.
Photo: Brant Sanderlin firstname.lastname@example.org
February 10, 2011 - Yesterday Michelle Obama came to Georgia, visiting a couple of schools to unveil a public service campaign to provide parents and families with information on healthy food and physical activity. She spent some time at Atlanta Government School’s, Burgess-Peterson Academy, where she handed out fresh blueberry snacks to the children while touring the East Atlanta school’s organic garden.
Ok, so that’s all fine and well. I have no problem with our children eating healthy. It would be great if those parents felt the same way and tried a little healthy eating at home for a change. Instead they rely on good old mother government to do it for them. What ever happened to sitting down at the table as a family for dinner each night? Of course if daddy was there it would be a family, but hell that’s a another story now isn’t it?
Hey – did you notice anything about that photograph? Did you look at it real close? Go ahead, look real close at the words under the letters posted on the wall. It looks like they are learning their alphabet, which is good. See the pictures under each letter? Under the Mm is a cute little monkey, and the word mayor. Under the Nn is a picture of a bird’s nest, and what have we here? Why, it’s the words national government. Isn’t it funny how they chose those words instead of something more common. Just an observation.
Government schools. Those little things that filter into your innocent little child’s brain. Indoctrination is so subtle, yet it builds in time throughout the government school teaching process.
Yea, it was really sweet of Michelle Obama showing her care and concern for those poor unfortunate children. Those poor little children, who, without the help of our federal government, would otherwise eat unhealthy. After all, we cannot expect parents to raise their children without mommy government, now can we?
Have you ever wondered who makes sure those little kids get a healthy meal during summer break? Just a thought.
