    This is what happens when your parents elect and re-elect the worst prez in history based on Hopey and Changey stuff!

    Anybody who thinks Obama is the “worst prez in history” knows about as much about presidential history as King Tut knew about microbiology.

    “Worst prez in history”

    I would think you would know better than to bring up history.
    Now you will complain when Bush is pointed out, hey, you brought up the past with that statement and without any question at all the President that did the most damage to America and it’s peoples was Bush.

    The heat of the moment is past and the facts do not go away.

    They didn’t have free lunches when I went to school and no one starved.

    But back to the subject of the ’toon…..

    Certainly the American public has chosen to remain ignorant regarding healthy eating, and our children suffer the result. It is widely predicted that one out of every three children currently under the age of 8 will be diabetic by the time they turn 21. This is truly frightening.

    Processed foods, as noted above, are tested by focus groups. The ONLY criteria is taste and the desire to eat more of it. If it is nutritionally empty, so what? If it is actually harmful, it doesn’t matter. Add sweet and salty, charge a fortune, and people will line up for miles. Fruits? Vegetables? Don’t be silly….

    To be fair, you can take the healthiest, most robust, organically grown vegetables and turn them into tasteless mush, which seems to be the forte of many school lunch programs. It may not be an issue of spoiled children refusing to eat healthier food; it may be an issue of healthy children rightly refusing crap.

    Wait, if the cartoon is about politicizing the school lunch program then why isn’t Michelle Obama behind the counter?

    Americans are idiots who eat whatever is advertised the most.

    They also strive to find the “bliss point” for taste so that they can incorporate it into their “food.” Real food science at work to subvert our eating habits. And it is working.

    @ConserveGov

    As if “Hope” and “Change” was never used by any politician of any stripe!
    President Obama:
    HOPE – to continue the change started in 1979 and continues. So far so good for him.
    CHANGE – to change our governmental structure first started in 1980. Yes there again too. For the P party aka Plutocrats which he is part of. And with the help of Theocrats and Oligarchs. (Some can be all three.)

    @Godfreydaniel

    I see plenty worse than Obama. But it is by degree. We are brow deep in putting our soldiers, drones, proxies into 150 countries and counting. Something that the Corporate press knows about, but isn’t telling.

    Almost right. They do care about people…rich people, and people of their class they care about. Everyone else can take a number.

    @I Play One On TV

    When you have agribusiness deciding what is healthy you have your first big problem.

    They eat what tastes best and is cheapest. Both go to the Frankenfood industry.

    The food industry knows exactly what Americans like to eat: salt, sugar, and throw in fat as a condiment. That’s they sell.

    What’s astonishing (and depressing) is that Republicans/Fox “news” viewers are perfectly comfortable with feeding unhealthy food to school kids — you know, it’s Good For Business.
