For years, Americans have been harangued with the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” school lunch program. Under the auspices of Barack Obama’s wife’s concerns about child wellness, the federal government has rigorously limited food choices in public school cafeterias.
Promoting and preserving good health has become so fundamental to American culture it now justifies stringent bureaucratic oversight to ensure that schoolchildren no longer participate in things like traditional in-classroom birthday and holiday celebrations.
What’s odd is that the same supposedly über-concerned government attempting to prod America’s children toward making better food choices are also undermining their long-term health by cooperating with a president determined to subject those eating more wholesome lunches in the cafeteria to an influx of unwholesome Third World students in the classroom.
How can that be, you ask? Well, thousands of illegals are streaming across our open borders, and as they do, the “Brown Shirts” are threatening to arrest border patrol staff and medical personnel if they dare divulge the shocking truth about the hordes of ill people being released into the general population.
The diseases being imposed on the otherwise healthy, both in and out of the classroom, are so lethal that millions of schoolchildren, obese and otherwise, are about to be exposed to pathogens that may end up drastically reducing the need for governmental calorie monitoring and the birth control Sandra Fluke believes should be paid for from the taxes of soon-to-be sick Americans.
For example, in the blue state of California, in the city of Sacramento, there is currently a TB outbreak in Grant Union High School, which may be why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in anticipation of the various diseases accompanying the surge of illegal aliens, has set up an “emergency operation center.”
So here’s the obvious question: How does the healthy lunch program improve the health of kids forced to share classrooms with illegals sporting head lice and spreading disease microbes long eradicated from the U.S.?
If various infectious diseases are gaining entry into America’s classrooms, isn’t banning sweets from school grounds an exercise in futility? What good are double helpings of Edamame bean salad when diseases like MRSA, scabies, swine flu, whooping cough, Ebola virus, and MDR-TB are poised to eradicate more Americans, both young and old, than a high BMI ever could?
What possible benefit is vegetarian chili being included in America’s school lunch program if students are forced to share a textbook in study hall with a child who may be infected with hand, foot and mouth disease?
It just doesn’t make sense for Mama Obama to push a healthy kids’ agenda while Papa Barack purposely cultivates an illegal-alien disease epidemic of Biblical proportions.
Why, in the name of children’s health, should schoolchildren be forced to gag down fruits and vegetables and exchange origami instead of sugary confections, when deadly bacteria in their midst can potentially do far more damage than a chocolate cupcake?
As for those healthy-lunch-abused school kids, what’s worse – Tater Tots and hot dogs or being assigned a science lab partner sporting scabies under a ‘Made in Guatemala’ T-shirt?
No one is exempt this time. Even Barack Obama’s most ardent supporters are poised to get a wakeup call, because guess what – microorganisms searching for hosts don’t distinguish between political parties, nor do blood-thirsty mosquitoes infected with dengue hemorrhagic fever and chikungunya virus.
Regrettably, at this perilous juncture in our nation’s history, these are the sorts of life-threatening dilemmas America must face thanks to a president playing a very dangerous game with our lives.
