$1.2 BILLION LOST In Michelle O’s School Lunch Debacle

The School Nutrition Association and The School Superintendents Association penned a joint letter to the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry on Monday. Outlining major problems with the regulations imposed by Michelle Obama’s school lunch program.
ET_foodwaste_feat
Heavy regulations are costing more money than the govt is providing while at the same time demand is down.
That’s a bad combination that has cost schools $1.2 Billion dollars in 2015 alone.

The letter states:

According to USDA, the school meal regulations added 10 cents to the cost of preparing every lunch and 27 cents for every breakfast, forcing local school districts to absorb $1.2 billion in additional food and labor costs in FY 2015 alone. To meet the rules, schools were provided only 6 additional cents for lunch, and while every breakfast must include an extra serving of fruit, schools were given no additional funds.

Meanwhile, the US Government Accountability Office finds that “challenges with student acceptance” of the changes have contributed to 1.4 million fewer children choosing school lunch each day.

As you can see The School Nutrition Association and The School Superintendents Association understand the problem but have no clue how to fix it.

More from the letter:

No one in the debate over Child Nutrition Reauthorization is interested in reversing progress. To sustain the progress local schools have already achieved, Congress must provide adequate funding and flexibility so that school districts can successfully educate healthy, successful citizens.

Instead of recognizing that skyrocketing cost coupled with falling demand is unsustainable, they just ask for more money to throw at the problem. Just like a good govt agency.

Department of Energy Loons Want Kids to Dress AS SOLAR PANELS FOR HALLOWEEN

Solar Panels

Happy Halloween, kids! The leftist loons at the Department of Energy have a suggestion for costumes. Vampires, ghosts and werewolves are so yesterday. Wouldn’t you rather dress up as a solar panel?

The Daily Caller reports:

DOE Wants Kids To Dress Up As Solar Panels and Windmills For Halloween

The Department of Energy (DOE) is celebrating Halloween by carving DOE themed Jack-O-Lanterns and instructing kids to dress up in “energy themed” costumes.

The DOE official website includes instructions on how kids can dress up as a solar panel, a wind turbine, an “energy vampire,” a particle accelerator, or Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz.

“You won’t produce electricity, but at least you’ll generate conversations wherever you go,” claims the DOE’s website, before suggesting that kids strap inflatable ankle floats or an inner tube to their feet to dress up as an offshore wind turbine.

The DOE also posted on energy themed Jack-O-Lanterns and included instructions on how to carve a pumpkin in the shape of compact fluorescent lamps, electrical cars, windmills, solar panels, and more.

Progressives are intent on ruining Halloween for kids.

New Liberal Study Links INCOME INEQUALITY TO CLIMATE CHANGE

The Left will tie anything they can to climate change, which is why it’s really no surprise that now the cause of income inequality, according to liberals, is global warming.

Campus Reform reports:

Newly published research uses science to lump the issues of climate change and economic inequality for political lobbying.

A study published last week by professors at the University of California, Berkeley, suggests that climate change will reduce the income of an average person by 23 percent and increase global inequality by the year 2100. The study followed a previous UC Berkeley study published just a month earlier, proposing changes to climate policy.

The results of the study find that climate change will increase global inequality majorly, alleging warming is beneficial for colder countries such as Europe, which tend to be more advanced and rich, but more harmful for hot countries such as Africa and South Asia, which tend to be poorer; thus allegedly widening the global inequality gap by roughly 77 percent.

Sadly enough, this study was most likely funded by taxpayers.

CNN: Socialism is as AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE

CNN has published a column by a liberal college professor who’s trying to defend Bernie Sanders and make socialism look normal. Just take a look below:

What is democratic socialism, American-style?

Now that Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is generating lots of media attention, the word “socialism” is in the news. But few Americans know what it is or what Sanders means when he describes himself as a “democratic socialist.”

In the early 1900s, socialists led the movements for women’s suffrage, child labor laws, consumer protection laws and the progressive income tax. In 1916, Victor Berger, a socialist congressman from Milwaukee, sponsored the first bill to create “old age pensions.” The bill didn’t get very far, but two decades later, in the midst of the Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt persuaded Congress to enact Social Security. Even then, some critics denounced it as un-American. But today, most Americans, even conservatives, believe that Social Security is a good idea. What had once seemed radical has become common sense…

Sanders is in sync with the vast majority of Americans. There’s a great deal of pent-up demand for a candidate who articulates Americans’ frustrations with the status quo. That’s what American socialists have been doing for over a century. Indeed, socialism is as American as apple pie.

If that’s true, why are people from socialist countries risking their lives to get into America?

Newly Unearthed Video Shows Eric Greitens’ Love For World Government

As you may or may not know former Navy Seal Eric Greitens is running for the GOP Gubernatorial nomination in Missouri branding himself a “Conservative Outsider”.
Another thing you may or may not know is that he was a democrat until 2 years ago. Not just a rank and file democrat but a hardcore, aggressive leftist activist.
He has close ties to the Clintons through his charitable foundation and ties to organizations funded by George Soros among other questionable associations. We will report more on these in the coming weeks.
So enamored with Greitens were the democrats that they courted him to run for Congress at one point.
Less than 2 years ago in 2013 Greitens was an active democrat endorsing the rabidly anti-2nd Amendment St. Louis mayor Francis Slay. In that same year Slay held an anti-gun rally in St. Louis where speakers discussed ceding US Sovereignty to the UN.
Undeterred by Slay’s propensity to disregard the constitution and defer to the UN, Greitens lent his name and image to the Slay campaign.
Dem Greitens 2
Now this video of Greitens praising the UN as “The greatest American foreign policy success in the last 100 years” has surfaced from 07′ further illustrating his views align with that of the radical Slay administration.

Is this earth shattering? No, but it’s another piece of the puzzle that when completed could reveal a Trojan horse.
Now this “former” leftist wants Missouri to elect him to the highest office in the state and bypass several proven conservative candidates in the process.
Since conservatives can’t count on some life long Republicans to represent their values why would they take a chance on Eric Greitens?

ESPN Host Compares The Tea Party To ISIS

Liberals in media have been unfair to the Tea Party since the very beginning so dumb attacks like this one are hardly a surprise. Still, one has to wonder why no one ever seems to suffer any consequences for saying such an outrageous thing.

The Hill reported:

ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser asks whether Tea Party is like ISIS

ESPN personality Tony Kornheiser drew a connection between the Tea Party and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) during his radio show on Friday.

The “Pardon the Interruption” co-host was speaking with Huffington Post political reporter Howard Fineman about the House Speaker race when he asked whether the Tea Party movement was trying to establish a caliphate in Congress.

“Are they like ISIS trying to establish a caliphate here?!” Kornheiser said on ESPN 980, as first reported by News Busters.

“Yes! Yes! That’s a very good analogy,” Fineman responded. “Without the violence, obviously, but yes, they are a rejectionist front. They don’t want to legislate.”

Kornheiser went golfing with President Obama earlier this month.

That last detail is a big surprise, huh?

CLASSY: ABC News Says Donald Trump Has ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION (VIDEO)

trump

Just in time for the GOP presidential debate, ABC News is attacking Donald Trump. Mainstream media political analysts can be so witty, can’t they?

Newsbusters reports:

On the morning of the latest Republican presidential debate, ABC’s Good Morning America mocked Donald Trump as having “electile dysfunction” and of being in need of “polling Viagra.” The comment on Wednesday by political analyst Matthew Dowd prompted laughs from journalists George Stephanopoulos and Jon Karl.

Asked a question about Ben Carson, Dowd changed subjects and attacked, “I wanted to say about Donald Trump, he makes me smile in the course of this. Watching him yesterday was like a guy with Iowa electile dysfunction trying to give his folks polling Viagra to get his poll numbers up.”

Watch the video:


Luckily, the media attacking Trump only helps him in the polls.

7th Grader Says She Was Told to Deny God or RECEIVE A FAILING GRADE (VIDEO)

7th Grader

A little girl from Texas recently testified before her local school board that she and other students at her public school were given an assignment which ultimately led to a choice between their faith and a passing grade.

EAG News reported:

Student says TX teacher forced 7th graders to deny God is real, or take a failing grade

A Texas seventh-grader is standing up for her religious beliefs after she alleges her teacher forced students to deny that God is real, and threatened them with failing grades if they don’t agree.

Jordan Wooley, a seventh grade student at West Memorial Junior High School in the Katy Independent School District, testified at a school board meeting last night about an assignment in her reading class that caused a serious controversy, and expressed frustration about her teacher’s atheist indoctrination.

“Today I was given an assignment in school that questioned my faith and told me that God was not real. Our teacher had started off saying that the assignment had been giving problems all day. We were asked to take a poll to say whether God is fact, opinion or a myth and she told anyone who said fact or opinion was wrong and God was only a myth,” Wooley told board members.

Watch the girl’s testimony below. Video via The Right Scoop.

This girl has a lot of guts. Good for her.
