ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I don’t eat wheat, sugar or vegetable oil, with the exception of the saturated varieties, such as coconut and palm oil. Would I ever force my food choices on someone else? Never. In fact I don’t even pretend to know what effect my food choices would have on someone else’s health. However, after monitoring my own medical tests, not to mention my body weight for the past several years, I do know what effect they have on me, and it is all positive.

Michelle Obama is just the product of a mix of arrogance and corruption endemic in the nutritional elite (“Food police and the banning of school bake sales,” Editorial, Web, Oct. 2). This elite, forever trying to “save” the masses from themselves, is a toxic mix of government (surgeon general, Department of Agriculture, National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration), quasi-government and ‘Big Food’ (mainly grain-based, as in the USDA food pyramid). This triumvirate has done more to destroy the health of the U.S. population in the past 100 years than any other single cause. Pick your poison, so to speak, and nothing else comes close to the destruction caused by this corrupt establishment.

When parents give up their parental rights to feed their children to this den of corruption, what they will end up with is a drugged, sick and very often maladjusted child who won’t have a chance at a normal life by the age of 20. The public schools have become the equivalent of what is depicted in the movie “One Who Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” Jack Nicholson’s character was actually sane, but your child won’t be after he is subjected to this mandated, progressive-inspired abuse from age six to 18.

If you can’t make sense out of what is happening, just follow the money. Who wins when your child loses? The teachers unions, the drug companies the testing services and, of course, the progressive triumvirate mentioned above. The sicker your child gets, the more these thrive.
