QOTD: “As defenders of Brendan Eich’s defenestration from Mozilla are right to note, the government didn’t force him out. The company merely exercised its rights in a free society. The same goes for Brandeis University, which rescinded Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s invitation for an honorary degree because she’s considered politically incorrect for her criticism of Islam.

But the liberal tribe seems to champion such freedoms only when they line up with its own worldview. You can have all the freedom and autonomy you want, so long as it yields progressive ends. But if you don’t want to bake a wedding cake for a gay wedding, or if you’re a nun who doesn’t want to pay for something you don’t need and are morally opposed to, that’s too bad. The right to be wrong, in liberals’ eyes, is a right only liberals should have, even if, like Paul Krugman, you never need to exercise it. And, all too often, when you are wrong, that’s when liberals bring out their hammers.” —Jonah Goldberg

Michelle Obama’s School Lunches In Pictures: “Is That Photo Taken From Death Row?”

One of the purported successes of Michelle Obama’s tenure as First Lady of the United States has been to help Americans get fit and eat right.

She’s launched a wide array of initiatives targeting Americans receiving government nutritional benefits, as well as school lunch programs across the nation. Nowhere have the First Lady’s efforts been more visible than in the cafeteria’s of America’s schools.

Within days of Obama’s new USDA regulations taking hold parents and schoolchildren launched complaints surrounding the rationing of meals, a move that left kids hungry and school districts frustrated with all of the additional paperwork and program expenses. The USDA subsequently upped the rations to assuage frustration.

But according to America’s kids Michelle Obama has been “out to lunch” when it comes to satisfying hunger. It’s so bad, in fact, that black markets for food have popped up in schools and kids are taking to their social media pages to share their outrage.

Do you want to see what Michelle Obama considers eating right? Check out these pictures and comments – sourced directly from government run cafeterias around the country.

As you see what passes for health food these days keep in mind that school’s are increasingly restricting children from bringing their own lunches from home, often citing nutritional requirements as the reason.

Can I get another scoop of brown with a sprinkle of yellow? Oh, and don’t forget my biscuit!

Seconds anyone?

When mom joined her daughter for lunch, here’s the wonderful meal prepared by the caring cafeteria staff:

 

On the flip side, here is what Michelle Obama’s children enjoy for lunch at the Sidwell Friends school attended by her daughters Sasha and Malia. In this particular case the school was paying a tribute to Pearl Harbor Day and the kids feasted on Asian Mushroom Soup, Oriental Noodle Salad, Teriyaki Marinated Chicken Strips, Garlic Roasted Edamame, Vegetable Fried Rice and Fortune Cookies for dessert:

And of course, how can we talk about healthy eating, school lunches, and Michelle Obama without mentioning the White House organic vegetable garden? The First Lady shows of her green thumb in the picture below. It turns out, however, that because of her busy schedule she didn’t actually grow any of her food. The White House gardeners did, and they did a heck of a job.

QOTD: “We have numerous people that we know participated in the Benghazi attacks affiliated with al-Qaeda that are still on the battlefield. We have the capacity to get them but there’s no planning to get them. We have other serious al-Qaeda threats that normally we would take off the battlefield, but because of this Administration’s more kinder, gentler approach we have not done that.” —Rep. Mike Rogers, Chairman of House Intelligence Committee

Why are Boehner and Issa helping cover up Obama’s scandals?

Once again the IRS appears to be complicit in a targeted leak of a private citizen’s tax return to effect a nakedly partisan attack. This time the IRS reportedly leaked the tax return of an executive at Mozilla who had expressed support for traditional marriage.

As for the gun-running operation that killed hundreds, Eric Holder and Barack Obama continue to unlawfully claim “executive privilege” over a massive trove of documents that likely implicate both in “Operation Fast and Furious“. Throughout American history, “Executive Privilege” was reserved only for a small, explicitly named set of communications unrelated to a specific criminal investigation. Until Obama, that is.

As for Benghazi? Well, for starters, we still don’t know what Barack Obama did for eight hours during a running terror attack that resulted in the deaths of four American diplomats. We still don’t know who coordinated the campaign of lies to the victims’ families and the American people about the nature of the attack.

So what does Johnny Boehner and his hand-picked Oversight Chairman, Darrell Issa, do? Next to nothing. They hold show hearings. They appear on television. But they refuse to name a Select Investigative Committee for any of these outrageous scandals.

Why?

Allen West has a pretty good idea and I have some additional thoughts (*cough* they got somethin’ on him *cough*).
