Michelle Obama Got Elected To What?

Why complain that people are solving hunger with food banks?

The school lunch rules in the United States might be a good idea, might not be. They might be good on nutritional grounds, might be ludicrous given that no one eats the damn things. Perhaps it’s a case of Federal over reach – what snotdribblers consume at noon is not one of those enumerated powers I’ve seen in the Constitution – and maybe just plain good sense from the people who know everything.

There is an interesting question to be asked about this headline though:

The Trump administration proposed scrapping Michelle Obama’s healthy school lunch policy on her birthday

When did Michelle Obama get elected to what position? Just screwing a guy who did get elected doesn’t give you executive or policy power does it?

Or does it? That being what strong and independent women do these days?

Perhaps her position was the Missionary Position? Although I sort of doubt it.

That’s one giant leap to assume she was doing Reggie Love’s boyfriend.

The First Lady does have influence, which unfortunately has gone from benign nagging to clean up litter or plant a tree to influencing legislation. Michelle did personalize the nagging functions in Obamacare, from mandating lunches kids won’t eat, to the signage/labeling requirements for food, which every entrant into the business must study FIRST, and keep up with.

The current First Daughter has advocated for the federal government to decide which absences from work are valorous and decree that they must be paid for and not result in career impairment on return, an equally unconstitutional nod toward excuse-making.

Most “food” in the US is at nursery tea level anyway. I’m not talking about swanky restaurants in New York, lobster in Maine, or barbeque down south, but the chow that’s available in the endless upmarket suburban shitholes where professional people live and work. The latest thing is “boneless chicken wings”. Which pretty much sums up American adult food. No texture, intellectually unstimulating processed cast-offs with a small palette of simple flavours. It’s like restricting art to the three primary colours. On scrap paper. With felt tip pens.

So the actual nursery meals must be absolutely bloody godawful.

Oh, our “breaded chicken breast patties including some leg meat.” School-kids would eat it. The school fare we are talking about is more like boiled vegetables.

There are stats for longevity and health outcomes; none for satisfaction with one’s dinner. This is why manage-by-the-numbers federal hacks are so good at making so many people miserable. (And they are unionized and would file a Grievance if asked not to.)

If I ever go to the US, I’ll have to try it. I wonder if it’d be better than my Rubbish Bin Stew??

Boneless chicken wings. No texture. Should one eat the bones? I did not know this. Been doing it wrong all these years.

No you shouldn’t, unless it turns out that the factory mixes in some bone meal too. No texture at all, as they are reconstituted chicken slurry. But I mix in bottled curry or Szechuan sauce and pay little attention to the “meat.”

To be fair, much of the UK is like this now, too. I’m not going to knock things like McDonald’s, Greggs or KFC. It’s cheap fuel on the go. But I have no idea why people eat out to Nando’s. It’s so bland, and not that cheap.

I found plenty of decent restaurants in the area of NJ where I worked (Summit, Mountain View*, Short Hills). I’d recommend some, but they’d be 20 years out of date :).

* I never did figure out which NJ ‘mountain’ there was a view of.

What the chains are selling is a predictable experience, using local labor, when necessity puts you in a strange town. That’s worth something, compared to the full spectrum of possible dinners, some of which might affect your performance at the business meeting the next morning. You will also find in the US, and in the UK, individuals who want to offer better. That’s more expensive, as they haven’t rolled out nationally and cost-reduced.
