…and so does her school lunch BS.

This meddling buffoon  is a perfect example of liberal stupidity gone wild. Just look at the “it’s for the children” BS that she’s piled onto the schools. And they’ll point to this as a success, no doubt.

Who benefits? The SEIU and their left wing cronies. That’s who. The children get crappy lunches and we foot the bill.

Michelle Obama’s Unsavory School Lunch Flop

by Michelle Malkin

The road to gastric hell is paved with first lady Michelle Obama’s Nanny State intentions. Don’t take my word for it. School kids in Los Angeles have blown the whistle on the east wing chef-in-chief’s healthy lunch diktats. Get your Pepto Bismol ready. The taste of government waste is indigestion-inducing.

According to a weekend report by the Los Angeles Times, the city’s “trailblazing introduction of healthful school lunches has been a flop.” In response to the public hectoring and financial inducement of Mrs. Obama’s federally subsidized anti-obesity campaign, the district dropped chicken nuggets, corn dogs and flavored milk from the menu for “beef jambalaya, vegetable curry, pad Thai, lentil and brown rice cutlets, and quinoa and black-eyed pea salads.”

Sounds delectable in theory. But in practice, the initiative has been what L.A. Unified’s food services director Dennis Barrett plainly concludes is a “disaster.” While the Obama administration has showered the nation’s second-largest school district with nutrition awards, thousands of students voted with their upset tummies and abandoned the program. A forbidden-food black market — stoked not just by students, but also by teachers — is now thriving. Moreover, “(p)rincipals report massive waste, with unopened milk cartons and uneaten entrees being thrown away.”

Patriot missiles en-route to China? You’ve got to be kidding me. I wonder how much more of our technology goes to China. Shipping Patriot missiles is not uncommon when they are being shipped to allies, but this ship was bound for China via South Korea.   The ROK could have been the destination, but it seems that this was not a routine shipment to an ally.

I find this highly suspicious.

Routine checks by Finland’s traffic safety authority revealed a load of up to 160 tonnes of improperly packed nitroguanidine, a low-sensitivity explosive with a high detonation speed.”

Actually in our investigation at the moment, we have got the information that we found 69 Patriot missiles on the ship and around 160 tonnes of explosives,” said Detective Superintendent Timo Virtanen from the Finnish National Bureau of Investigation.
