Friday Open Thread: Questionable School Lunches Edition
Alright everyone, it’s Friday. We’re almost at the end of the week. We’ve managed to make it through tax day–or at least I hope you have, but we can never be to sure with the IRS–and can no focus on the rest of our lives for the next few months. Right now, though, it’s close to lunch time if you live on the East Coast, | Read More »
Michelle Obama calls ‘Bruce Bailey’ (D-CAND, Iowa Senate) a ‘Marine.’
In Mrs. Obama’s defense, It’s A Wonderful Life is in fact an underrated film, and possibly not quite suited for our cynical era.

Democrats’ E-mails Descend to Desperation and Farce
It’s always a good idea to keep track of what your opponents are saying. That’s part of RedState’s mission of “Fighting the Left and Cleaning Up the Right”, and it includes, yes, seeing what the Democrats are e-mailing their supporters. I haven’t subscribed to them, but a friend forwards me the ones sent out by the Democratic Party itself and the DSCC. I don’t know | Read More »
Michelle Obama Misses The Mark on Education (Again)
Recently Michelle Obama spoke at the American School Counselor Association’s annual conference and, once again, the First Lady missed the mark on education. Instead of focusing on building a solid foundation, Obama rolled out new initiatives that seek to bolster college attendance rates while managing to have no focus on students. The initiatives, which fall under the First Lady’s goal of getting students to “reach | Read More »

Michelle Obama wants schools to be your kids’ momma
It’s not really about food. Michelle Obama thinks that your kids belong to the government. In a softball, monstrous interview with MSN, she spews her elitist garbage, which joins the stuff kids are throwing out of her lunches.

Michelle Obama lies to Kansas high school graduates…oh the irony
Oh the irony. Michelle Obama spoke to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas on May 16, celebrating the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, which legally ended school segregation.
The lies come so easily. It’s Michelle Obama’s generation that is dragging our nation back into racism, a racism that is almost totally absent in most 18 year olds.

Michelle Obama and Eric Holder decry dangers to Sustainable Racism
Sustainable Racism, along with Cargo Cult Economics, are the philosophical mainstays of modern liberalism. What Sustainable Racism seeks to do is to keep fanning the flames of racial discord in order to provide jobs and political power for a handful of 1%, mostly very privileged blacks and Hispanics, by allowing them to act as Christ-like mediators between the average black and Latino and a system | Read More »
The Obamas: It Is All About Us
One of the more public displays of narcissism by Obama has been his constant inserting of himself into every situation. It started out funny when it was noticed that Obama had been inserted into the official White House biographies of other presidents. Then he became a part of Rosa Parks’ legacy by having himself photographed in the bus where she refused to give up her | Read More »

Queen Michelle versus the young knuckleheads
If you want to sum up everything wrong with the way our arrogant Ruling Class looks upon its child-citizens, you could use Michelle Obama’s deep thoughts about why young people should be racing to sign up for the Affordable Care Act. The young have largely turned up their noses at ObamaCare thus far, despite one of the most massive, expensive advertising campaigns in history, including | Read More »
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com It is a truth universally acknowledged that every era deserves its own wonky post-election analysts. Lately Mark Halperin and John Heilemann have shrugged on the mantel previously worn by such notables as Jules Witcover, Theodore H. White and, um, Hunter S. Thompson. Their perspicacious coverage of the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections have provided posterity with insights into the sheer brilliance of Barack H. | Read More »

Water is not “free”
Fresh off a triumphant childhood obesity campaign that left school children in open rebellion against her tiny, unappetizing school lunches, our First Lady – an unelected, unvetted, unconfirmed, unqualified national Minister of Health – has embarked on a crusade to make people drink more water. The splashy rollout of this campaign met immediately with resistance from the same grumpy, fact-obsessed realists who have interfered with | Read More »
FDA Food Police
Quick! Think of one word that best describes the relationship between feds and farmers. I’ll give you a second. Okay. Did you say, “subsidies?” If so, you might be surprised to learn that only five crops (corn, wheat, rice, cotton, soybeans) receive the majority of subsidies while the rest have flourished under a (soon-to-be obsolete) free market system. This unsubsidized half of domestic agriculture will | Read More »
