    Default Republican Congressman Pushes For Unlimited Calorie School Lunches

    Republican Congressman Pushes For Unlimited Calorie School Lunches

    http://thinkprogress.org/education/2...-school-lunch/

    Last week, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) called calorie caps on school lunches “the nanny state personified.” This week, he is moving to eliminate the caps with his pleasantly-titled “No Hungry Kids Act,” H.R. 6418.

    King’s bill is a direct response to the the Let’s Move! campaign, an initiative from First Lady Michelle Obama. Her effort prompted the Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act, which set such calorie limits on school meals and opened up funding for physical fitness programs. But while some might see the move as a way to combat childhood obesity, King believes that it is denying kids sustenance:

    I firmly believe it is 100% political pandering.

    If Barbara Bush has chosen healthy kids as her pet project, this fucking moron would have thought it was the greatest idea ever, but since it's Michelle Obama, he hates.

    When you have the largest pool of morons in the world to choose from, you get a large percentage of morons elected. It just the law of averages.

    I will let you in on a secret. Americans, by and large, are fucking stupid. maybe stupid isn't the correct term, how about incredibly unaware.

    You could ask 100 Americans "who is the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court", I bet 50% wouldn't know who it is. Hell, ask them how many judges are on the Supreme Court, and watch them count them off "Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown, the guy from Night Court...."

    Remember, our Pols can get an idea, work it out to be some sort of new law / program and campaign for it. They do not have to be smart, make sense, or any other damn thing as long as they get face time for it (I am reminded of something similar where a Congressman was going to pass a law that did not allow "rubbernecking" at a crash site on the freeway)

    We on the other hand have to go home, drink bourbon and listen to their attempts to justify idiocy like this on the news. (I stress bourbon because experience shows beer makes people too agreeable and that will not work)
    It is what it is

    but you don't need to know Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to know that feeding kids healthy food is a good idea. When he says the equivalent of "let's open a buffet of fast food in the schools instead" is he not immediately called a moron by everyone in the room?

    Only the Democrats will call him a moron.

    The Republicans will call him a freedom fighter.
