Because I couldn’t find the channel changer, I watched Ted Cruz (stop what you’re doing, and go here now) tell a screaming Indianapolis rally that when his wife, Heidi, is First Lady, there’ll be French fries back in school lunchrooms. This is not the first time he’s said such a thing.
He said “French,” not “freedom,” so I’m a little worried about that, but won’t you rest easier knowing we will once again put fatty crap onto the bodies of tomorrow’s leaders?
Honest to God, this is the stupidest campaign I’ve ever witnessed. As an aside, watch Ted glance over at Carly falling off the stage. What a guy:
Who do you want Democrats to run against? Trump? A bully who regularly incites political violence, is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims…who could buy enough support to win the Presidency. (h/t HuffPo
Or Cruz? A dominionist, a miserable son-of-bitch by most GOP accounts, and not quite, according to those in the know, Lucifer in the Flesh…who couldn’t bribe his own Party to campaign for him even if he had the money.
Considering the fact the Obama’s modest school lunch reforms aren’t really working, and the fact that Cruz inspires more Republicans to vote Democrat than not? I’d join Bill Maher, grab a handful of greasy fries and encourage Ol’ Ted to stay the course. (But next time give Carly a hand.)
I dislike both candidates. On some days, I dislike them equally. It’s like deciding what to do if you’re neck-deep in shit. If someone throws a bucket of snot at you, do you duck?
I wouldn’t say the lunch reforms aren’t working. You can’t completely change health status with one meal. There are many pieces to improved health and healthy weight. Anything that can be done (school lunch wise or other) to improve nutrition and reduce unhealthy eating while encouraging healthy eating habits is worthwhile. Thank goodness we don’t have to listen to Cruz’s idiotic ideas, like bringing french fries back to school lunches, anymore!
We met with a nutritionist this morning and she commented that oddly, politicians say very little about how to reduce overall healthcare costs – one of the biggest expenses in the budget. Her view was, if we want to bring down spending, more needs to be done to educate the public and to incorporate healthy nutrition into healthcare. “Eat less fat”, “reduce carbs”, “lose weight” and “exercise more” comments from medical providers are too vague. Nutritional education & counseling should be a regular part of healthcare, especially for people who are genetically predisposed to certain conditions or who have chronic conditions. Food is medicine. Cruz is such an idiot! (Did I already say that?)
