Dang, Michelle, it was a joke!!!!!
I've caused some laughter in the OA when I've used my fear of Michelle Obama and Meme Roth grabbing my French fries in a metaphorical reference to this Administration's proclivity for usurping our Constitutional rights. Well, yesterday Twilight Zone moved into Nightmarish Reality. Michelle Obama appeared with Darden Restaurants, Inc., which is the parent company of Olive Garden and Red Lobster, to announce that french fries will no longer be listed on the children's menus...no pictures of french fries either. And, I don't know if this is true or not, but there was even some discussion about a minor not being able to order french fries without parental permission. Are we going to start carding for fries like we do for alcohol? Don't laugh. It's not just this one thing about french fries...LA has at least tried, I don't know if they passed the regulation or not, to ban fast food places from entire communities...these were usually minority communities which have been given the designation of "food deserts." New York City liked LA's ordinance so well, they asked for the whole program so that they could copy it. There's ordinances being instituted against fast food restaurants being located within 500 ft. of schools. McDonald's has been forced to get rid of Ronald McDonald. There was some program where Michelle and her food police put cameras in schools to record the kids' trays with their food selections and then record the trays again when the kids were through eating.
And this is not just Olive Garden and Red Lobster. Darden Restaurants, Inc., is the parent company of many chains in addition to Olive Garden and Red Lobster. A while back, Michelle was appearing with Walmart and Walgreen executives who were announcing that they would be making our food choices "healthier."
I've also run across info that this may be a payback to the Obama Administration for granting waivers from ObummerCare to companies with payrolls that include a lot of part-time, low-pay employees; i.e. fast food restraurants. And all the while Miss Michelle BusyBody is working hard to control your food choices, there are pictures and stories all over the net about what the Obamas are eating...carrot sticks no where in sight.
Wake up, America. They're not only grabbing your french fries. They're grabbing private property rights, land, eliminating jobs through governmental agencies like EPA, DOT, DOJ, Fishing and Wildlife, DHS, lowering your standard of living and destroying your savings and the economy through the Federal Reserve...
I ran across this comment under an article discussing Michelle's ordering a 1700 calorie meal which, to me, kinda summarizes a lot of America's current reaction:

She probably took in a total of 300 or 400 calories. Most of those from the diet Coke.
