After coming back to America a few pounds lighter from eating those shrubs and gravel they call food in China (just kidding chinese readers), I noticed a few new things:
Michelle Obama found a cause, and that cause is to teach kids nutrition and exercise
And This(Pic Stolen from LAEastside)
Fast food joints, 7-11s and shady liquor stores now accept EBT/Food Stamps.
Does one hand know what the other is doing?
The main people who use EBT/Food Stamps are children– poor children— who probably don’t have good role models if being poor is an indicator of that. As a poor kid growing up, I can vouch that we ate with a pretty wild disregard for nutrition in my house.
I’m not an Obama basher (I’ve become apolitical lately), but this seems radically incongruous. Fast food joints and liquor stores do not have nutritious meals, are overpriced and incredibly prone to fraud.
I’m sure in some time there will be a news report about this and they can dust off that stock footage of fat people walking down the street.
