Yes, it’s time to bring back the word “niggardly” in reference to Michelle Obama’s treatment of America’s kids. I don’t care how many ignoramuses try to pretend that the word is a racial slur. “Niggardly” means “grudgingly mean about spending or granting” or “provided in meanly limited supply.” No other word fits so well.
Weekly Standard points out that there is nothing niggardly about the lunches provided to Mooch’s offspring at Sidwell Friends, the expensive private school that they attend:
According to the school’s website, pepperoni pizza is on the menu today: [9/25/2012]
French Mushroom Soup
Classic Caesar Salad
Boston Bean Salad
Pepperoni Flatbread Pizza
Variety Flatbread Pizza
Variety Veggie Flatbread Pizzas
Sauteed Local Greens

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, it’s 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. It’s not reasonable to expect them to either eat what the government deems healthy or go hungry.
Many will opt to go hungry, and that’s the government’s fault.
It’s Priorities USA’s World and We’re Just Living In It
Michelle Obama has poisoned the nation’s food supply and potentially given listeria to America’s children, according to press reports.
Food inspectors have discovered listeria in packaged apple slices destined for McDonald’s, Burger King, and various grocery stores.
It was Michelle Obama’s push for healthier eating that led fast food restaurants to begin including apple slices in their kids’ meals.
Now, you and I may think it is outrageous to claim that Michelle Obama had anything to do with food poisoning America’s youth. You and I would be right to think it is outrageous. But if Mitt Romney is responsible for Joe Soptic’s wife dying of cancer almost a decade after Mitt Romney left Bain Capital’s day to day management, it is only fair to use the same kind of
stupiditylogic to point out Michelle Obama is giving kids listeria.
What’s fair is fair, right?
Maybe deep fried foods are safer for kids after all!
Mooch has banned the deep fryer from school cafeterias, although that doesn’t stop her from eating French fries whenever she likes. Problem is, raw fruits and vegetables are subject to surface contamination with live microbes, which is obviously not an issue with deep-fried foods. You never know exactly where packaged pre-sliced fruits or vegetables came from and how they were handled. I consider them to be inherently unsafe. If you want fruit or vegetables, buy whole produce and wash it and cut it up at home.
