You assumed Michelle used a ghostwriter? She's a graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law!

Peter@11:41-- excellent snark.

This will, of course, be followed by her next bestseller, "Eat Your Damn Peas and Carrots, Kids!".

Her book following "Eat Your..." will be "How to Maintain Perfectly Toned Arms Without Losing Your Big Butt."

Maybe now that Stedman has handled this so effectively he can contact Brian Terry's family http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/05/slap-on-wrist-for-prosecutors-who-changed-history-by-wrongfully-convicting-ted-stevens/

You may have noticed that reference to well-being in today's post. It turns out that the UN agencies and international governments have started defining and listing the roughly 42 physical or social/interactive or emotional/psychological "needs" and "wants" they want schools keeping track of for each student. Over years.

That's another part of the longitudinal data systems funded by that most munificent of all govt honey pots-the 2009 Stimulus Act.

MO's physical fitness and diet pushes fit the physical components perfectly.

It is something I was going to mention in the next following post when I get to the accreditors as enforcers of an unwanted vision.

Isn't it amazing how their new 2012 quality standards mandate the collection of data on the physical, social, and emotional needs of each student.

With knowledge and academics generally omitted from the monitoring obligation. It's enough to make you think there's something else going on under the banner of education.

Clarice

Marion Burros must be sleeping with the right people or something. Her rise to fame was her authorship of the most disgusting recipe book ever written:The elegant But Easy Cookbook, jam packed with things that are hardly elegant but certainly revolting.

No one who knows a thing about cooking or eating will fail to recognize it as a monumental floppero.

MarkO

We need to accept the facts: we are fat racists.

Appalled

Clarice:

My wife informs me that the best cookbooks are the ones issued by small southern churches, or ones issued by the local southern city's junior league. She does, however, also endore the Times-Picayune Cook Book (her version is from the 20s, and she does cook out of it) and Southern Cooking by Mrs. Dull. My wife, if she were in Oklahoma, probably would have picked up Pow Wow Chow, but skipped Ms. Warren's family favorites.

Honorable mentions go to the Brer Rabbit Molasses cookbook circa 1948) and the Gephardt's Mexican Cooking (from about 1935, but my wife adds more spice).

Clarice

Here's my tips on making kids fitter:
(1) clamp down on violent crime so that parents will feel free to let their kids go outside and play like we used to do;
(2) encourage baby daddies to be daddy husbands so that families can do a better job of child raising
(3) reduce taxes so mothers can spend more time with their kids and families can eat healthier home made food.

Rick Ballard

It would only be fair if they loaded up Mooch and ran her over a set of truck scales to see if she set off any obesity alarms. It's just not right to use the Spratt Family average weight to determine that everything is A-OK at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. They wouldn't be slapping in heavier floor joists if that were true.

Appalled

Clarice:

How much of #1 is perception? Crime has generally been declining for years.

I wonder if the cannibal in Florida looks like Obama's son? I wonder if the cannibal in Florida read Michelle's book?

Mostly true, Appalled, but here in Chicago, it stubbornly refuses to subside. Particularly the black on black rates. We have seen an uptick in 70's style crime, but I was expecting that as economic hard times go on.

Clarice, you are so right about Marion Burros' cooking instincts. How the Times' food writers have fallen since the days of Craig Claiborne.

Porchlight

How much of #1 is perception? Crime has generally been declining for years.

Whether or not crime has subsided, the mentality among parents of my acquaintance is that it is Insanely Dangerous to let one's kids play outside unsupervised. I would love to send my kids to the local park on their own (only 2 blocks away) but I would probably have CPC called on me.

My husband won't even let them walk to school (next to the park) on their own. I don't agree. I think the neighborhood is perfectly safe as long as they watch for cars. They only have to walk half a block to get on sidewalk where they will be able to see the crossing guard in front of a school.

Incidentally there are several children that do walk to school from about the same distance. They are all minorities. There is definitely a racial divide, at least in my area, when it comes to these things.

Granny Jan

Michelle O has been exploiting the military from the beginning for her obesity program. Here she is at a military base on 1/11:

"Childhood obesity is "not just a health issue for children, it's a national security issue," Obama said while visiting the Army's largest basic training facility. "You have to get the whole country behind this because it's affecting our ability to protect our freedom."

She repeats over and over that this program doesn't have the heavy hand of government or infringe on parents rights but here's what she said 12/10 when the Health, Hungry Kids act was signed:

"But when our kids spend so much of their time each day in school, and when many children get up to half their daily calories from school meals, it’s clear that we as a nation have a responsibility to meet as well,” Mrs. Obama said. “We can’t just leave it up to the parents"

Jane

Janet,

I just went to my mailbox for the first time since Thursday. Inside I found a flag - tea party pin which I am proudly wearing and will wear every day from now to the election. Thank you so much.

OT,

I enjoyed asking for a Republican ballot in my liberal Texas precinct today and getting the polling folks all flustered. I cast my vote for Ted Cruz.

Chubby

if everyone would just work out their own issues, the world would be a better place. some people have the problem of obesity to work out, others have other issues. more attention paid to improving oneself instead worrying about steadying others' arks, and the world would be a better place. I'm sure that Michelle Obama has scads of issues she could be dealing with to make herself over into a better person, as do we all.

there are more important things to think about in this world than baby fat. I see a generation of food neurotics on the horizon.

Here's the latest Kimberlin outrage I posted amidst the troll droppings on the last thread

You know what's wrong, but I wonder what's right?"

Sounds like a Romney soundbyte.

When asked about Trump’s remarks last week questioning whether Obama was born in the United States, Romney said he doesn’t agree with everything his supporters believe, but in the coming election he’ll need their support.

“You know I don’t agree with all the people who support me and my guess is they don’t all agree with everything I believe in,” Romney told reporters on an airplane before taking off for a campaign appearances Tuesday in Colorado and Las Vegas. “But I need to get 50.1 percent or more and I”m appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people.”

Porch,

Porchlight

I see a generation of food neurotics on the horizon.

Food neuroses are already rampant among parents. Funny, they are almost entirely white, upper-middle class, educated parents. I personally think it's a variant of Munchausen by proxy. Parents take pride in their children's food "sensitivities" and I think, in some cases, actively seek out these diagnoses. Their children are special, you see.

I don't think food sensitivities are completely not real, btw. Just overdiagnosed among a certain set. And for the wrong reasons. "Oh, his behavior isn't what you want it to be? It must be gluten!!" Etc.

My SIL is exhibit A. Her kids have had all the trendy diagnoses, in chrono order. First lactose intolerance, then peanut allergy (not the life-threatening kind although she makes you think it is), now celiac/gluten intolerance. She never misses an opportunity to tell you all about it. She can't wait to get the whole family on the gluten-free train. It is almost as if she is happy about it.

Porchlight

Sue,

I won't cry if Dewhurst wins. I don't think he's super terrible or anything. But I wanted to send a message, as they say.

matt

where the Times has fallen, the WSJ food section is rising rapidly. We seem to regularly be pulling recipes from their Saturday edition and making them. Almost all have been crowd pleasers.

There is a lentil soup recipe we are trying tonight. mmm mmm good!

As to obese recruits, flash back to Full Metal Jacket. There has been an obesity issue for far longer than Michelle's obsession with a smaller butt.

As a society we are more sedentary, which is a big cause for obesity. So turn off the TV kids, shut down the computer, and go out and play.

Rob Crawford

Porch -- I think some people like the extra attention they get from their "sensitivities".

BumperStickerist

I did a google on "recruit fitness" and hertling.

The result was a series of informative, on-topic articles.

http://www.dmholmeslaw.com/appiesboard/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1699

The articles bring up data that, if tortured sufficiently, could yield some sort of conclusion to what Michelle's book says.

One factoid I was not aware of was that the National School Lunch Program was started as a Defense Program in the 50's. Healthy kids make for healthy soldiers, that sort of thing.

Sort of like the US Highway System was designed to get troops to anywhere on the US coast to counter an invasion in three days or less.

marlene

Yes Sue,that "cannibal" story is creepy.He was allegedly high on bath salts,which has become a terrible problem for law enforcement,hospital emergency rooms and substance abuse facilities here in Maine. A long time drug addict who used bath salts gave an interview to the Bangor Daily News in January and said he"...became a bear...I was growling." Very scary!

rse

matt-Gourmet's all-time favorite soup recipe is brown rice and lentil soup to which smoked sausage can be added.

My mom swiped my recipe then made it for a family friend she had known from childhood dying of lung cancer.

Poor woman was quite depressed as she had been an avid smoker for years. The next day after dropping off the soup the phone rings "That was really good soup you brought us."

Soup good enough to rouse the dying from self-engrossed depression.

The even better thing is she did not really lapse again after that. She found old friends company to be pleasant again.

Chubby

Porchlight, I feel sorry for those children. Were they to survive a plane crash in the Andes, and the only food available to sustain them was peanut butter, wheat crackers, and dry milk, would they have to starve? I tend to think that in a survival situation, their food intolerances would fade somewhat.

Jane

I posted this on the other page, so excuse the repetition:

Hillary also wrote coffee table books from the White House. Did anyone read them? Did they influence "taste?"

I used to think it was a way for publishers to stuff a First Lady with money.

Oh, "the queen" gets in on the act, too. People publish books detailing what she eats.

PS: Brett Kimberlin met the Internet, and got clobbered. Michelle, not so much.

Jane

Porch,

I actually went gluten free about 2 weeks ago in an attempt to figure out what is causing after having excema in my eyes for the 4th time this year. (So far I'm not cured).

All I can say about gluten free is it is very expensive, and most of the replacement foods you can buy are full of sugar which for me at least is more evil.

Mark Folkestad

Jane, I don't know why you characterize sugar as evil. I'm a type-II diabetic now, for about four years, and I was shocked to find that the vast majority of products marketed as "light/lite" are much higher in sugar content than the ordinary versions. It is only the fat they are concerned about. Thank God for Splenda. I don't miss sugar. I got a jar of peanut butter recently that had the warning icon that it contains peanuts. Duh. I'm not convinced that peanut allergy is as common as is claimed. Otherwise hundreds of thousands of kids would have died in the Fifties and Sixties, with school lunch programs pushing peanut butter on everyone.

rse

Oh chubby that's the expression I get when I get up from writing to go get some tea.

"That's not what you are here for."

Rob Crawford

I was shocked to find that the vast majority of products marketed as "light/lite" are much higher in sugar content than the ordinary versions. It is only the fat they are concerned about.

My favorite is the line of salad dressings bragging about ONLY 5g OF CARBS!!! Well, yeah. A few grams of starch, and the rest is fat.

Thanks for the Kimberlin update links. Wow, really scary stuff.

Here's my tips on making kids fitter:

(4) Stop diverting resources for biofuels that make agricultural products more expensive.

(5) Stop pushing low-fat high-carb diets (especially in school lunches) that leave kids craving for snacks.

AliceH

Here's my tips on making kids fitter:

(6) Quit giving them cash to use without any direction or supervision.

JeanD

(7) pack their lunches

(8) cook at home and make fast food a treat instead of a staple

(9) don't let them mainline juice, soft drinks and sports drinks; it wouldn't kill them to drink some water instead

Neo

InstaPundit opines:

If I read this correctly, Aaron Walker is in trouble because Kimberlin claims that his blogging has somehow led to other people making death threats. That doesn’t seem to pass the First Amendment smell test. Only if Walker were inciting those threats in a way that passed Brandenburg scrutiny would that work, and I don’t believe that’s the case at all. At any rate, under this approach George Zimmerman ought to be able to jail any number of journalists.

Pagar, the Milwaukee Mayor was caught fudging violent crime stats by the local paper plus FBI. It made a nice ad for Walker.

Thanks, Henry!
It is insane for Wisconsin voters to be thinking that they want Barrett as their governor after reading that ad.

IMO, there is simply no reason to believe that leftists are not going to fudge numbers. Look at every set of numbers that come from the Obama regime. Very few of them are correct judging by the revised numbers that we see. It is not just once in a while, it is every week for the weekly reports.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- One never knows when the Supreme Court will hand down its last, often biggest, opinions of the term. But the justices' summer travel schedules make it a pretty safe bet that blockbuster health care and immigration cases will be decided by the end of June.

That's because Professor John Roberts, also known as Chief Justice of the United States, has a morning law school class to teach the first week of July. On Malta.

To the north, and at a much higher elevation, Professor Antonin Scalia, will put his law students through their paces in Innsbruck, Austria.

At least two other justices, Samuel Alito and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, also will spend part of July teaching American law students at summer programs in Europe.

it's usually the first week of June, neo. Next week.

Frank Skog

These stats are fairly meaningless. The military raises and lowers standards as necessary to get the best available bodies to fill the billets. At one time the submarine service required 20/20 uncorrected vision and no more than three fillings (not cavities) in the teeth. In the 1970's with fewer volunteers, 20/400+ corrected to 20/20 was OK.

.

Jane

Lurch's yacht is still in RI and the MA taxes remain unpaid.

When Caro and I sailed to Nantucket to see OL Kerry's yacht was in the harbor. Of course that is no proof at all that he paid his taxes.

I actually thought it was a really nice boat - all polished wood, but I really know nothing about boats.

(Is it an insult to call a yacht a 'boat'? That's what I was hoping for.)

jimmyk

I would not be at all surprised to find that leftist mayors telling their police depts to fudge the numbers.

There's been some of that, though more for low-level crimes like burglaries. There's not much question homicide rates have come down, maybe not as much in some places as others. But I think porch's point is right: Parents have become hyperprotective, and even if you are happy to have your kids go out and play unsupervised, if no one else is, it doesn't really work.

Lea

Isn't 1998 the year they changed the standards of what is considered overweight? (googles) Yep.

"Using the old criteria, the average woman -- with a height of 5 feet, 4 inches (1.6 meters) and weighing 155 pounds (70 kilograms) -- was considered overweight.

Under the new definition, that weight drops to 145 pounds (66 kg). A person at the same height who weighs 175 pounds (79 kg) would be considered obese. "

It's like when they changed the autism standards and then said OMG so many people are autistic now!

Ms Warren...how did a great Cherokee like you come by a recipe for Mexican Oatmeal Soup? What exactly make this soup "Mexican"? Is it really true that EVERYONE who tries it, loves it?...or do some people just find it "meh"? Do you have a recipe for Cherokee Oatmeal Soup?

None of the ingredients give you a clue. And Janet, I'd pay to hear those questions asked.

Google Mexican Oatmeal Soup. Not unique to Big Chief Elizabeth and they don't know what makes it Mexican either.

Sue


From The New York Times Bread and Soup Cookbook, by Yvonne Young Tarr (1972).

Hey Daddy, when did Big Chief Elizabeth contribute to the cookbook? Is she also a fake recipe submitter?

AliceH

Porch - about that recipe you link... I had the same exact question the only commenter had, to wit: "When do you add the spinach?". :-)

I read somewhere that being a cookbook editor was one the hardest jobs in publishing. The argument was that either you know cooking, and thus mentally fill in missing steps or correct errors (like TBS really should be tsp) without realizing it, or you don't and the same errors are missed out of ignorance. Oh - I figure the spinach is added after the broth is brought to boil.

daddy

Just FYI,

"Big Chief Elizabeth" is the title of Giles Milton's enjoyable history of Queen Elizabeth, Walter Raleigh, Indian Chief Manteo, and the history of Raleigh's Lost Colony in The New World. I think "Big Chief Elizabeth" was what the Indian's called her.

Book Description:

"In April 1586, Queen Elizabeth I acquired a new and exotic title. A tribe of North American Indians had made her their weroanza - 'big chief'. The news was received with great joy, both by the Queen and her favourite, Sir Walter Ralegh. His first American expedition had brought back a captive, Manteo, whose tattooed face had enthralled Elizabethan London. Now Manteo was returned to his homeland as Lord and Governor. Ralegh's gamble would result in the first English settlement in the New World, but it would also lead to a riddle whose solution lay hidden in the forests of Virginia. A tale of heroism and mystery, BIG CIEF ELIZABETH is illuminated by first-hand accounts to reveal a remarkable and long-forgotten story."

Some fun, good parts in it, tho' IMHO, MIlton's finish is reckless in saying he's figured out what happened to the Lost Colony---nobody knows. What I like about Milton in general is his familiarity with the documentation of the time.

In a round about fashion, that's correct. The bailout was never for Greece, but Greek bondholders, which were primarily EU financial institutions, plus a haircut. One group owned the English law bonds and got paid in full, some dumb hedge funds who are predisposed to reading the covenants. Some arcane practice called "Due Diligence", I hear.

He also declared himself a "really big fan" of Dylan, who accepted his medal, stony-faced, in dark sunglasses."And I remember, you know, in college listening to Bob Dylan, and my world opening up, because he captured something about this country that was so vital."

"There is not a bigger giant in the history of American music."

"Dylan was in no rush and left the president waiting as he took his time getting down from the stage to receive his award"

I'd be willing to bet that Dylan isn't a fan of the JEF and, even if he were, he wouldn't stand for being a campaign prop.

Pat looked great Captain. Looked a lot happier about being there than Dylan.

Bob seems very anti-authoritarian to me. That puts him in conflict with elements of both the Left and the Right at times. I can live with that attitude, considering what he does for a living.

But one thing I know for sure is that he has always been at the vanguard of the anti-bullshit-arian movement, which puts him directly in conflict with the archetypical bullshit-arian, Barack Obama.

I'll bet he was counting the seconds until he could get away from the SCOAMF.
