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 »
Michelle Obama Poisons America’s Food Supply. Gives Kids Listeria.
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 | Read More »
#Cookiegate! …Wait, we’re not talking about federal regulation of school bake sales?
Because, you know, the federal government has abrogated that power for itself ever since the lame duck Congressional session in 2010. Under the bill, the secretary of agriculture over the next year will draft nutritional standards for all food sold outside the standard meal program, provided it’s during school hours and on school grounds. Hot dogs at nighttime football games would be in the clear. | Read More »
Tech at Night: We won a battle on SOPA; LightSquared heating up; OBAMA shows sense on privacy
Wednesday night I put off all Tech at Night topics except for SOPA because the critical mark up votes in Committee were coming up. We weren’t supposed to be able to stop SOPA, but we could at least raise awareness, put up a fight, and prepare for the floor votes. And sure enough, the vote to keep the Internet censorship provisions went in favor of | Read More »

Food-Inspector-in-Chief Michelle Obama’s Latest ‘More Equal than Others’ Moment
America’s New Mother-in-Law enjoyed some proletariat-free time this week, taking a respite from her pressure-filled life by hitting the slopes in Vail, Colorado. At least, she hit the slopes in between her other, higher-priority activities: chowing down on short ribs, and inspecting “kids’ healthy lunches.” According to restaurant owner and short rib-cooker Kelly Liken : “[Michelle Obama] was wonderfully gracious and very much interested in | Read More »
Another target for the anti-Wal-Mart mob?
You know, a couple of days ago RedState reported on a quote-unquote ‘grassroots’ organization that was planning to picket a developer’s house in opposition to Wal-Mart.. If that sounds familiar, that’s because you’re remembering the 500 epic heroes of SEIU who gathered together last year to terrify a fourteen-year-old kid as part of their unionization drive. Are these the same types? Probably: if we’ve learned | Read More »
What’s the cost to taxpayers for Patty Murray’s 911 call to Obama and Biden?
Democrats are hitting the panic button in Washington State as the race between Democratic Senator Patty Murray and Republican challenger Dino Rossi narrows down to the nail-biter many of us knew it would be. How much is Murray’s eleventh-hour 911 call to Pres. Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice Pres. Joe Biden costing taxpayers? After already receiving two visits from the executive branch’s | Read More »
Is Michelle Obama Still Proud of America?
Michelle Obama received a lot of criticism a few years ago when she said “for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.” She said it was not just because Barack Obama was winning, but because ‘people are hungry for change.’ It was a stunning admission – an acknowledgment that she could not ‘really’ be proud of her country | Read More »
Obamacare a Threat to White Castle and IHOP. This Time, It’s Personal
Oh, that’s right. Obamacare, filled with stealth Nanny State penalties and taxes aimed at further controlling your life, is now threatening the yummy eats found at White Castle and IHOP, among others. The Columbus-based family owned restaurant chain – known for serving small square hamburgers called “sliders” – says a single provision in the bill will eat up roughly 55 percent of its yearly net | Read More »
