Basically, I Took the Whole Summer Off From Blogging

Now, can you guess what I’m gonna talk about?

If you guessed the topic is going to be “How freakin’ stupid liberals are, give yourself a pat on the back.

Today, we’re gonna talk about one of the top dogs of liberalism, Michelle Obama, because the following story is such an excellent example of how liberal minds (don’t) work.  Check this out from EAG News


Missouri, Alabama schools drop Michelle O’s lunch program

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – New federal school food regulations promoted by First Lady Michelle Obama are becoming a massive headache for many schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program.

And many, like Missouri’s Notre Dame Regional and Saxony Lutheran high schools, are taking matters into their own hands.
Those schools and numerous others across the country are ditching the federal regulations and the funding that comes with them to save their cafeteria programs, which have experienced a nose-dive in sales and skyrocketing waste since the new rules were implemented in 2012.
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – New federal school food regulations promoted by First Lady Michelle Obama are becoming a massive headache for many schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program.
“Kids will not eat what doesn’t taste good,”
A National School Nutrition Association survey also found food waste is up in 81.2 percent of schools nationwide, and a study by Cornell and Bringham Young universities estimates the waste at $4 million per day. Students in Los Angeles schools alone are throwing away $100,000 in food per day, ABC reports.


Now, how many of you are surprised by what you read in the above story?
Nobody surprised?  Of course not.  In fact, most of you predicted this outcome years ago, when you first heard about it coming down the pike.

What about Michelle, do you think she’s surprised?  After all, it was her pet program.  Surely she had her hopes pinned upon its success.  Certainly, she’s both surprised and disappointed.

Well, you know what they say about Michelle.  “She’s dumb, but she ain’t that dumb.”  She knew that the kids were going to react this way, every bit as much as you and I did.  The only thing Michelle is surprised about is that there were some school districts, and even states that have told her to take her mandates and regulations and shove them up her ass.  The only thing she’s disappointed about is that she ran out of ways to force them into force them into compliance.

OK then, if Mrs. Obama knew that her school lunch thingy was not going to be accepted by the people who actually had to consume the food, then why did she do it?  That’s where the liberalism comes into play.  You see, in her mind, this whole school lunch fiasco has been a rousing success.  

If you’re having trouble understanding that, it’s probably because you’re all mired down with that logical thought process stuff.  You probably judge the successes and failures in your life by the outcomes.  Silly you!  Who needs those undesired outcomes telling you that you were not successful.

If you are a liberal, you can judge how successful you are by your intentions-  If you had good intentions, you are successful, nevermind the outcome and nevermind that at least half of the people disagree with you.

Michelle knew from the get go, that the school districts wouldn’t want to serve her idea of what a school lunch should be, and she knew that the kids wouldn’t want to eat it, but that didn’t concern her.  She already had good intentions, and she had just the tool to make sure her dream became reality - FORCE - the only thing the liberal mind understands.

All she had to do is FORCE schools to comply by making it a requirement in order for schools to get federal money.  It’s easy to make people comply when you can force them to comply.  Then, the schools tried to force the kids into compliance by taking away any other options the kids may have had.  You can take away the kids vending machines, but you can’t force them to eat the shit you serve.  (At least not yet.)  Kids just ended up throwing out their lunch and pigging out after school.  How many fat kids do you think got skinny as a result of Michelle’s lunch mandates?  Zero?  Less than zero?

Like I said in the beginning of this piece, “I’m sure none of this is a surprise to any of you.”  but what I want you all to take away from this is the difference between liberals and conservatives:  Liberals are all about force.  It’s the only thing they understand.  Think about it.  Virtually any time liberals suggest bringing about some type of change they desire, don’t they always resort to backing it up with some type of force?  Be it a fine, a cutoff of funding, or some other type of penalty, force or the threat of using force is always there.  Do liberals ever stop to think that “If we have to force the people to do something, maybe they disagree with us, and maybe we should rethink what we’re trying to push upon them”?  I doubt if they ever stop to think about anything.

Also, don’t expect them to predict any realistic outcomes or try to anticipate any unintended consequences that arise as a result of their policies.  They don’t play that game.  Oh yeah, did I mention who’s gonna pay for the changes they want to make?  You know who’s gonna pay, the same people who always pay.

Compare all this to the philosophy of conservatives- “Just let the people do what they want.”  It doesn’t cost anything, and you don’t have to coerce people into doing what they want with threats of force.

Now which political philosophy do you want to claim as your own?
