New bill would require WH dinners to follow same as school lunch guidelines

One Illinois Republican lawmaker has asked the White House and the Obama’s to stop being “hypocrites” and practice what they preach about nutrition.

Tuesday night’s glutton-fest of a White House state dinner for French President François Hollande was the perfect example of why U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis has introduced legislation that would require official White House meals to follow the same USDA mandated guidelines for school lunch and breakfast programs.

Davis’ bill, H.R. 3686, the School Nutrition Fairness Act, is “to make sure this Administration is aware of the real-life impact their regulations are having on kids who are going hungry and our smaller school districts who are struggling to keep up with the increased costs,” he wrote on Facebook Tuesday.

The Washington Times reported that the meal served to guests at Tuesday’s dinner ran an estimated 2,500 calories, “which is almost three times as much as what the first lady and the USDA allow our school kids to eat in the school lunch program,” Davis said. It’s “the height of hypocrisy.”

The dinner’s high-calorie menu shattered the USDA standards of approximately 1,200 total calories per day for students that the first lady touted as part of her anti-obesity campaign.

Not to mention the government mandated, small meal portion size leaving kids hungry, as well as the complaints from students and parents about school lunches that “taste like vomit.”

According to the Times, the White House dinner consisted of:

[A] main course of dry-aged ribeye beef served with blue cheese, 12 varieties of potatoes and quail eggs.

The first course was American Osetra caviar, farmed from sturgeon in estuaries in Illinois, followed by a “winter garden salad.”

Dessert was a selection of sweets: a chocolate malted cake that combined bittersweet chocolate from Hawaii and tangerines from Florida, served with vanilla ice cream made in Pennsylvania. Also on the menu were fudge made from Vermont maple syrup, lavender shortbread cookies and cotton candy dusted with orange zest.

Pretty hard to ask people to “Let’s Move” after that meal.

        I know this will go over your head but …..

        This was Marcus Garvey . Garvey identified the root causes of President Obama’s plight in 1922 when he wrote:
        “A terrible mistake was made between 40 and 50 years ago when black men were elected to legislative assemblies all over the country, especially in the southern states and even at the national capital when representatives of this race occupied seats in Congress. The mistake was made as far …as the white people were concerned. There was a state of dis-organization in the nation, and in that state certain things happened to mere chance. In the chance, dozens of black men became Senators and Congressmen. This opened up to the eyes of the white nation the possibility of the black man governing the white man in these United States of America – the possibility of the black man making laws to govern the white man? This possibility drove them almost to madness, in suddenly rejecting the spirit of the Constitution and the declaration of Lincoln that “all men are created equal,” hence the determination was arrived at, that never again would it be possible for the race of slaves to govern the race of masters within these United States of America.” Think about it

          Duh………I wish you liberal racists would get off the racial flamethrower. You morons think that everyone thinks like you do. Your TRUE ideals are reflected in all of your writings. YOU are the ones that always have to inject “race” and harbor YOUR subliminal fears of any race other than yours. Bringing up a national condition that may have existed 150 years ago ( like Garvey is the be all,end all as far as propaganda goes) has no bearing on today’s conditions or attitudes.
