Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why

Wow that is depressing. 

#about Parkview 

sorry, but i call bullshit (at least to the notion that michelle obama is the single source of this culinary hellscape). that crusty fried chicken sandwich in the top picture? i got served that shit in high school fifteen years ago, when michelle obama was an illinois senator’s wife. that ugly mess of ground “beef” and corn and mashed potatoes, with a single sad white roll? that shit’s so familiar i might as well be high-fiving it at a family reunion. our school lunches have been garbage for decades, ever since we let corporations enter the business of feeding schoolchildren on contract, when school lunches stopped being cooked at school and started being cooked in factories and freezer-bagged and microwaved on site. this shitty situation can’t be dropped entirely in michelle obama’s lap: she didn’t start sysco or aramark or maramont or any of the giant food conglomerates that serve up deep fried frozen faux food by the truckload into america’s schools, at a profit. why don’t we hold accountable giant corporations and industry lobbyists- like, i shit you not, the national potato council- who have fought against improving school lunch standards for decades?

michelle obama’s fighting an uphill battle because let’s face it, school districts across the nation are suffering and hemorrhaging money, and school lunches have always been a target of cutbacks. rather than spending money on healthy foods to cut calories and maximize nutrients- re the obama guidelines- schools just cut corners and serve less. their shitty substandard implementation of the guidelines does not mean that the concept of bringing healthier food into public schools is a failed one. 

and if you want to change school lunches, instead of complaining to michelle obama on twitter, you can support the local efforts of students, parents and teachers to improve their lunches, like the campaign going on in philadelphia right now. these schoolkids have organized to try and end the contract with their shitty corporate meal provider, and gather support for meals cooked in-school with better ingredients. i guarantee there are fights like this going on in more places than philly, and they could use your help.

He designed this special shoes, shared between him and his paralyzed daughter just to make her feel the sensation of walking.

WEEP DAFEELS PENETRATE ME

Oh my goodness

This is probably so good for her body, too! Imagine her muscles getting moved in ways they don’t normally and she is upright and hopefully not having any pressure spots! This is lovely in so many ways!

This is a wonderful invention, but the man in the picture is one of the testers. He is not the inventor. The inventor was an Israeli woman named Debby Elnatan who developed this with an Irish company for her son.

Anonymous asked:

Since you are good friends with Sam, are you close with Michelle too?

It’s a little strange. I was friends with Sam when she met Michelle and she kind of had a separate friendship with Michelle, so we never really got close. I remember one time though, when Sam basically deliberately abandoned us at Walmart with two boys we were kind of friends with and Michelle and I bonded. But other than that, we’re really just friends. I think we’d both love be get to know each other better, but there’s just never the right opportunity.

i’m telling you right now

if you are queer and not jewish, it is absolutely your responsibility to stand up when you see queer people being being antisemitic and talking about “archaic biblical laws” or whatever

if you are jewish and not queer, it is absolutely your responsibility to stand up when you see jews being homophobic and using the bible as an excuse

queer jews are already faced with homophobia and antisemitism from communities that are not ours, we shouldn’t have to be defending ourselves within our own communities as well.

violent antisemite goes and shoots up a jewish community center full of kids and a jewish old folks home?  he missed and hit non-jews instead!  what is everyone so upset about: it wasn’t an actual hate crime!

masked men handing out threatening fliers to ukrainian jews in an environment of increasing civil unrest and violent antisemitism?  wasn’t actually official government summons, just people using antisemitism as a political tool!  why are people still worrying about this hoax: the jews in ukraine are safe and sound!

we jews sure do love to blow everything out of proportion!  sorry that a few of you were briefly inconvenienced by worrying about jewish welfare!
