Michelle Obama has launched a new offensive in her Battle of the Bulge. Sadly, the battle will be fought on our shores instead of the cellulite-laden cliffs of Mount Moochellvius.
A new 80-page report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture explains that federal bureaucrats hope to use a variety of tools to modify the way Americans select food items at the supermarket.
The goal is to steer consumers toward fruits and vegetables – and away from sugar- and fat-laden items. The plan is in line with “Michelle Obama’s stated second term agenda to ‘impact the nature of food in grocery stores,’” reports FreeBeacon.com.
While the feds’ plan deals mostly with the 47 million Americans who participate in the government’s food stamp program, it would indirectly affect all consumers.
[T]he federal busybodies want to provide food-stamp shoppers with “incentives” for making healthy food choices – such as discounts or free movie tickets – and even talking shopping carts that will notify them when they’ve selected enough healthy items.
Look, if we didn’t let people make unhealthy food choices, there would be no fat people; and without fat people who would we tease unmercifully until they develop an eating disorder?
