  • Now Michelle Obama Wants to Control How You Shop for Groceries

    Michelle Obama has been on a quest to change the way Americans eat, like it or not. …………………………... ….While the “expert panel” had a supposed target of the 47 million Americans, and growing, who are on food stamps, the suggestions will impact everyone who shops at a grocery store.

    Considering so much of America's obesity is among those on welfare/EBT cards...seems that Michelle would set to limit these entitlement recipients to ONLY healthy choices. Michelle certainly needs her 'quest' to center on changing EBT users' grocery shopping habits.

    Sodas, high fat entrees, snack foods, expensive 'luxury' foods, etc would all be verboten. Better yet, my suggestion would be welfare recipients be limited to 'shopping' at government warehouse commodities for their nutritional needs.

    The basic foods (meats/fruits/vegetables/dairy/starches..etc) would be available. And perhaps meal planning, cooking/baking lessons would be available to all. Luxury items, high fat, high sugar, can be purchased at regular stores with their own money. Funds preferably earned at a learned vocation.

    I believe in society providing a bonafide though temporary 'safety net' for those in dire needs. Those finding themselves in unfortunate circumstances. But in the Democrats 'buying' votes in the form of greatly expanding the welfare state...our society now experiences those in an entitlement permanent hammock.

    Michelle change those habits that are now approaching a third generation of our citizens.

    sounds great will have to try this version.

    My version of kettle corn

    In a "Stir-Crazy' popper I place 1/4 cup coconut oil and three kernels to start. When the three kernels pop (oil is then ready).

    I place a premixed (3/4 cup popcorn kernels + 1/4 cup brown sugar + 1/4 teaspoon salt = for salty/sweet taste) into popper. When finished popping, dump popcorn into another bowl, stir slightly to break up some clumping. Easiest to clean popper while still warm.

    Noticed that using white sugar taste is similar to popcorn balls, while brown sugar is akin to kettle/caramel corn...enjoy

    OLD Related post:
    By Kevin “Coach” Collins

    The headline says, “US cities may have to be bulldozed in order to survive.” For whose survival?

    Obama’s plan to teardown big city slums like Flint and Detroit is just a trick to move Black Democrats to areas where their votes will swing more Congressional seats to the socialists. He couldn’t care less about the poor Blacks in these cities; they’re only votes to him.

    Obama wants to build government housing in the suburbs and move thousands of his Black voters into these new government gulags where their votes will count more. He sees no value in 90% plus Democrat victories in Flint and Detroit when he could move thousands of those votes into nearby Republican held districts in Brighton and Livonia and win them as well.

    He will do this and of course we’ll pay for his scheme.

    Obama won’t have to raze suburban homes to do this. He will rely on “White Flight” to clear out the last stubborn pockets of conservatives and let ACORN’s urban shock troops do the rest to flip surrounding Republican Congressional seats one by one………………………………………….”

    If every house in the southwest saved its rainwater off the roof, this problem would not exist.

    Not possible in many states, as AZ, CO, OR, CA, NV, MEXICO come to mind. One has to deal with centuries old 'water rights' down river, down the watershed from persons/municipalities owning those rights. Water has been a point of serious contention in the West for centuries.

    One cannot even capture water off their downspouts, establish a cistern, nor establish a water retention pond. In reality every drop of water is spoken for. MD, they even tax the rain runoff from your property (relating to storm sewer costs).

    Bamboo comes in many, many varieties. Running bamboo is indeed invasive, whereas clumping bamboo confines itself to the planting areas. To contain running bamboo, one needs to surround the area with at least an 18 mil thick plastic 2-3 ft down and 3 inches above the ground to successfully ‘stop’ the runners. In the past few years, growers have offered winter/mountain bamboo which can be grown in the 5-6-7 zones.

    Elagabalus is back! Obama, return of a historical figure?


    While reading a book on Roman Emperors, I happened to stumble upon, a little known Roman Emperor named Elagabalus. I began to see some parallels between Varius Avitus Bassianus Elagabalus and the modern day Barack Hussein Obama. Get me clear now, many things are completely different form the modern day situation, and this past example. This is just my musings on the similarities the popped into my head while reading about Elagabalus.

    Elagabalus and Barack Obama both share names from the middle east, and a mixed heritage. Obama has white and black heritage, Elagabalus had north African, Syrian, and Roman origins. Many people in the country were they came rule were bigoted against them because of their foreign origins.

    Their childhoods are fantastically familiar to one another. Both had to leave the countries they would one day come to rule with their mothers . They were raised in a foreign states Obama in the Philippines and Elagabalus in Syria. Obama and Elagabalus's fathers disappeared from the scene at an early age. Because of the exodus from the comfort of the land of their birth both were raised primarily by both their mother and grandmother.

    The former Emperor Macrinus was very unpopular because of his failure to gain victory over an inferior enemy (the Parthians who were from modern day Iraq) caused considerable resentment among the Romans. Sound familiar to Bush? Iraq? Malcontent with a long war with no victory? Macrinus also suffered from bad popularity in the late-summer of 218 A.D when a massive thunder storm caused catastrophic flooding, and Macrinus' appointee as urban prefect proved unable to repair the damage to the satisfaction of the populace and had to be replaced. The Romans became even more enraged when Macrinus never even showed up to comfort his people and oversee rebuilding. I believe this sounds familiar to Katrina and New Orleans, which caused his popularity to fall. One of the greatest early criticisms Obama and Elagabalus was their youth and inexperience. Elagabalus was only 14 when he became the youngest Emperor in Roman history at that time

    The Romans said it was time for a change.

    Elagabalus and his followers promised change to Macrinus's incompetent leadership and a return to Roman greatness. Macrinus was overthrown and Elagabalus started his reign as a extremely popular and hopeful new leader.

    During the beginning of his rule, Elagabalus showed a disregard for Roman religious traditions and sexual taboos. This is similar to the way in which the conservative right views Obamas support of the Gay marriage leaders, and his abortion stance. In Elagabulus's case it was his open acceptance of transsexuals. The conservatives were silenced by the masses of Romans who just wanted to return to government that was not incompetent.

    This was the situation at the beginning of the reign of Elagabalus.

    I could watch B5 all day long...

    IMHO, for continuity.. I would recommend Babylon 5
    You must endure the first season (which has lots of hints needed for later)!...the series is somewhat out of order.

    Season 4 was the end of the show. So the very last episode of Season 4 should be watched after the entire series, movies, and sequel series (Crusade & Jeremiah).

    The prequel ("In the Beginning") was actually released in Season 5 when TNT reran the show and contracted for Season 5 and some movies.

    My recommended sequence...
    === "In The Beginning" movie
    === "The Gathering" movie
    === Season 1-4 (but NOT last episode of season 4)
    === Season 5 Episode 1-3
    === "Thirdspace" movie
    === the rest of Season 5 but NOT last episode
    === "River of Souls" movie
    === Call to Arms (the prequel to Crusade)
    ==="Lost Tales"
    === Last episode of Season 5
    === and then last episode of Season 4.

    Then optionally watch or insert after "Lost Tales" the rest of the story.

    Hmmmm...what ever happened to Farscape...I lost it due ever switching daystimes/cancellation. Was just beginning to discern story arc.

    Why do the Feds have a say in what local schools serve as lunches and snacks, anyway?

    When one deals with the Federal government there are always, in all ways, strings attached.

    In this instance it derives from the school districts receiving aid for their breakfast/lunch programs. Schools receive government reimbursements for serving the 'free' breakfast/lunches to those in need. The Government also provides free food commodities in the form of cheese/dairy/grains..etc

    Appears many school district are extremely dependent on this financial arrangement for their school nutrition program remaining solvent. Or perhaps, if recent numerous articles regarding school lunch programs are to be believed, times are a'changing. News of school district losing tens upon tens of thousands of dollars due to the revised, reformulated, recalculated Government mandated lunch offerings no longer being purchased by students.

    There are current situations wherein school districts are now forgoing Gov dollars, exiting the 'Gov' lunch programs...simply stating they can no longer afford the losses in lunch revenue.

    Therefore some schools are no longer receiving or more truthful, refusing financial reimbursements, refusing gov food commodities. Certainly their revenue will take a hit. But it appears it may be worth it to rid themselves of Michelle's overbearing, hypocritical dictates on how we are to act/eat/think. Those schools now possess the ability to provide their own menus, own diets, own snacks.

    Dealing with the has to remember the old adage...
    when sleeping with dogs, you'll get fleas.

    It is with a strange feeling that those of us who come from the Soviet Union look upon the West of today. It is as though we were neither neighbours on the same planet, nor contemporaries -and yet we contemplate the West from what will be your future, or look back seventy years, to see our past suddenly repeating itself.

    And what we see is always the same, always the same as it was then: adults deferring to the opinion of their children; the younger generation carried away by shallow worthless ideas; professors scared of being unfashionable; journalists refusing to take responsibility for the words they squander so profusely; universal sympathy for revolutionary extremists; people with serious objections unable or unwilling to voice them; the majority passively obsessed by a feeling of doom; feeble governments; societies whose defensive reactions have become paralyzed; spiritual confusion leading to political upheaval.

    What will happen as a result of all this lies ahead of us. But the time is near, and from bitter memory we can easily predict what these events will be.

    Excerpt from "West's Betrayal of Civilization" by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    President Obama goes to a primary school to talk to the kids. After his talk he offers question time.

    "And what is your question, Walter?"
    "I have six questions"
    First, "Why did the USA Bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?"
    Second, "Why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it's actually gotten worse?"
    Third, "Why did you say that Jeremiah Wright was your mentor, then said that you knew nothing about his preaching and beliefs
    Fourth, "Why are we lending money to Brazil to drill for oil, but America is not allowed to drill for oil?"
    Fifth, “Why do you continue to cover up the Benghazi scandal?"
    Sixth, “Why did you spy on your own U.S. citizens?" and lastly, why did the IRS target Republicans?

    Just then, the bell rings for recess. Obama informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.

    When they resume Obama says, "OK, where were we? Oh, that's right: question time..
    Who has a question?"

    The gist of my reply/cartoon is that we, the producing taxpayers, will ultimately pay for it. This government is astutely capable of redirecting funds through the usual practice of budgetary smoke and mirrors. The 1990's Clinton Administration took funds out of completed negotiated government programs and simply reallocated, reallotted the funds elsewhere.

    No, the House did not vote/approve Obama's 'emergency' request for funds. Remains to be seen how this Administration frames the argument, manipulates the media, portrays the 'children' as greatly harmed by the lack of compassionate Republican approval.

    ahhhh... yes... Hollywood celebrities...those pampered creatures that have private armed bodyguards, private limos/jets/SUVs, have obscenely vast mansions, receive financial incentives (tax breaks), watered, manicured lawns/golf courses, practice NIMBY, bleat out the latest cocktail talking points, the latest feel-good charities, graces or rather scolds/preaches ‘flyover country’ with their current revelations...those celebrities???? ;)

    Whaley may want them, those of us in the suburbs do not. Dayton is a dying city for the same reason Detroit is dying, total Democrat control. The Democrats have been campaigning to make Dayton and the suburbs one big metropolis, so they can get their hands on the money in the burbs, of course. They keep telling us how successful that has been in Indianapolis.

    Suburbs may not want them...but will a choice be given? I experience where a number of inner cities ship their Section 8 recipients out to the suburbs. It is sold as diversity, as to alleviate the congestion. But in reality, to spread the pain. As crime rates increase in these newly settled Section 8 households/areas...the inner city washes their collective hands. So too will these illegals be eventually shipped to the suburbs. To spread the problem around, to negate traceability/accountability, to obviate any 'follow the money/favors" queries.

    I had no idea this lesbian loon was offering to house these people, the local (Dem. controlled) news outlets have said nothing about it.

    Gee, what a list of hooey .... every food produced by agriculture is GMO. No exceptions. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors invented the practice of modifying plants and animals to make them better food sources.

    Hooey just be in the eye of the beholder.

    Seems our ancestors modified plants by grafting, by cross pollination, by selection of desired traits/characteristics, by importing stronger plants (weather tolerant, moisture/fertilizer requirements). Surely you're not suggesting our ancestors delved in molecular mutation by gene splicing fish scales unto tomato genes to enable fruit to be more resistant to bruising.

    Other nations need our food products...yet the European Union, various Asian countries refuse GMO products. I may be mistaken, but some African nations also.

    All things come with a limit. A mathematical limit.
    At what point and what is the number that exceeds our ability to be compassionate...???

    Perhaps...but I discern the Cloward / Piven strategy is based upon no limits.

    My opinion on immigration is based upon the existing evidence of not being able to adequately manage/provide/train/educate our current citizen populace...that our compassion 'tank' has been drained some decades ago. We truly are not proving (no, not considering entitlements) for our own.

    Since WWII, we've provided a protective umbrella, a bread basket, favorable trade for vast areas of the civilized world.

    We're spent!!! Immigration is temporary closed due to urgent maintenance...sorry for the inconvenience.

    I've been reading up and it seems there are old ethnic neighborhoods, that the younger generations have abandoned over the years (moved to various suburbs). Transients have taken over. The mayor wants to fill these neighborhoods with immigrants. Fill them with takers, entitlement, welfare, disability leeches? Did I miss the vast jobs announcement for Ohio??

    I do not believe Ohio, as part of the 'rust belt, is participating in any sort of true economic recovery. Perhaps just treading water, but I would surmise that city is not in the economic stable condition to absorb tens of thousands of welfare recipients.

    Barney Frank and Chris Dodd...most definitely

    Glass–Steagall Act
    Volcker Rule
    "Financial Stability Act of 2010",
    Frank was able to help guide both the Federal Housing Reform Act (H.R. 1427) and the Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act (H.R. 3915) to passage in 2007.[49] Frank also said that the Republican-led Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act of 1999, which repealed part of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933 and removed the wall between commercial and investment banks, contributed to the financial meltdown
