http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_HEALTHIER_SCHOOL_MEALS?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2014-05-19-11-59-32House Republicans are proposing to let some schools opt out of healthier school lunch and breakfast programs if they are losing money.* WHY IS WASHINGTON INVOLVED IN THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE?A GOP spending bill for agriculture and food programs released Monday would allow schools to apply for waivers if they have a net loss on school food programs for a six month period.* GOOD FOR THE GOP. NOT NEARLY FAR ENOUGH - BUT A START! END THE FEDERAL MANDATES!Championed by first lady Michelle Obama, the new standards have been phased in over the last two school years, with more changes coming in 2014. (*ROLLING MY EYES*)* SO THE COUNTRY SURVIVED TILL 2012 WITHOUT MICHELLE OBAMA'S "RULES." ENOUGH! END THE FEDERAL MANDATES![S]ome school officials say kids are throwing fruits and vegetables they are required to take in the trash.* GEE... YA THINK...?!?!(*SNORT*)The House Appropriations Committee said in a release that the waiver language is in response to requests from schools. ... The School Nutrition Association says that almost half of school meal programs reported declines in revenue in the 2012-13 school year and 90% said food costs were up.* GREAT JOB, MICHELLE!
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/17/us/us-sets-up-crisis-shelter-as-children-flow-across-border-alone.html?_r=0With border authorities in South Texas overwhelmed by a surge of young illegal migrants traveling by themselves, the Department of Homeland Security declared a crisis this week and moved to set up an emergency shelter for the youths at an Air Force base in San Antonio, officials said Friday.* THIS... IS... INSANE!* FOLKS... THERE'S A BORDER. THE FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS SHOULD BE TO CONTROL THE BORDER... PROTECT THE BORDER. THESE "YOUNG ILLEGAL MIGRANTS" SHOULD BE STOPPED FROM CROSSING INTO THE UNITED STATES! LET THE MEXICAN MILITARY CREATE EMERGENCY SHELTERS IN MEXICO FOR THESE "YOUNG ILLEGAL MIGRANTS!"On Sunday, Department of Health and Human Services officials will open a shelter for up to 1,000 minors at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, authorities said, and will begin transferring youths there by land and air. (The base was also used as a temporary shelter for unaccompanied migrant youths in 2012. It became the focus of controversy when Gov. Rick Perry of Texas objected, accusing President Obama of encouraging illegal migration by sheltering the young people there.)* I*N*S*A*N*I*T*Y...!!!* FOLKS... THIS AMOUNTS TO AN INVASION! AND OBVIOUSLY THE MEXICAN GOVERNNET IS SANCTIONING IT?! AS IS OBAMA...!!! WHERE IS OUR MILITARY? WHERE IS OUR STATE DEPARTMENT...?!The flow of child migrants has been building since 2011, when 4,059 unaccompanied youths were apprehended by border agents. Last year more than 21,000 minors were caught, and Border Patrol officials had said they were expecting more than 60,000 this year. But that projection has already been exceeded.* YET ANOTHER UNNATURAL DISASTER ON OBAMA'S WATCH...
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/may/18/obama-warned-about-va-wait-time-problems-during-20/The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal.Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.* IN THE WEEKS AFTER THE 2008... THE 2008... ELECTION...“This is not only a data integrity issue in which [Veterans Health Administration] reports unreliable performance data; it affects quality of care by delaying — and potentially denying — deserving veterans timely care,” the officials wrote.In recent months, reports have surfaced about secret wait lists at facilities across the country and, in the case of a Phoenix VA facility, accusations that officials cooked the books to try to hide long wait times. Some families said veterans died while on a secret wait list at the Phoenix facility.* VETERANS DIED... DIED... WHILE ON A "SECRET" WAIT LIST...In Phoenix, officials are looking into whether as many as 40 veterans died while waiting for treatment, with “secret wait lists” used to conceal the delays.* PHOENIX... AS IN ARIZONA... AS IN JOHN MCCAIN'S HOME STATE...* GREAT JOB STAYING ON TOP OF THINGS, JOHN! (*GIVING MCCAIN THE FINGER*)Briefing reports typically are prepared by career federal employees before a change in power, giving incoming administrations detailed looks at agency operations. The VA report notes that little was done to address the problems surrounding scheduling and wait time accuracy during the George W. Bush administration.* AGAIN... THE SAME PATTERN EMERGES... WHATEVER BUSH FUCKED UP, OBAMA FUCKED UP WORSE.
