Oh yes, you read that correctly! As many of you know, I have written a lot of articles bemoaning the intrusive nature of the Obama regime; primarily focusing on Michelle’s obsession with what we Americans eat. Of course I am in favor of eating healthy foods. What I am NOT in favor of, is the GOVERNMENT telling me what I can and can NOT eat. (Mostly, they are in the “not” category, I’ve found)
Today, I read something on CNSNews.com that REALLY boiled my blood. Not only is Mean Mother Michelle yammering on and on and on ad nauseum about our fatty children (which has been proven WRONG by the Centers for Disease Control, I might add), but now the U. S. Department of Agriculture speaks out blatantly about the need for the government to CHANGE the way Americans eat by CHANGING their taste preferences!
You read that correctly, my friends. He outlines a plan to actually change the taste preferences of America to that which the Government approves.
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told members of the National Restaurant Association on Monday that Americans need to “adjust” their tastes so that they like the kind of food the government believes they should eat—and “we have to make sure that what we do is create the appropriate transition.”
Excuse me?? Now we need to adjust our tastes so that we “like the kind of food the government believes” we should eat?? This is completely beyond the pale.
“It’s going to take time for people’s taste to adjust and they will adjust over time, but it will take some time,” he said. “So, we have to make sure that what we do is create the appropriate transition.
“At the end of the day, though, we’ve got to deal with this,” said Vilsack.
Vilsack’s remarks about Americans’ taste buds came in response to a question about the best way to deal with food waste. He said the Agriculture Department has ongoing research projects to determine how to make nutritious food more appealing so that less of it is wasted.
Vilsack mentioned visiting a Colorado school that was serving children brownies made with black beans. “The kids didn’t even know they were eating a healthier snack,” Vilsack said.
First Lady Michelle Obama has made childhood obesity her signature issue, launching the administration’s “Let’s Move” program which is dedicated to “solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation.”
On its website, the “Let’s Move” program says that: “Everyone has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity, including parents, elected officials from all levels of government, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies.” (Emphasis mine)
This is an example of the depths to which this administration will dive in order to totally determine our lives – what is good for us and what is not – based SOLELY on what THEY think. And, as we have found, what the government believes and pronounces as truth is SELDOM actually based on any traceable facts. In other words, they pull a lot of this stuff out of their communal anal fact extractors. The terrible thing about that is that they are attempting to alter Americans lives based on their little socialistic views. How many people remember that Hitler did the same thing; attempting to make Germany vegetarian, because HE believed it was the healthy way to go. Just sayin’!
