From ConservativeTribune.com:

While your kids at school get the slop that Michelle Obama dictates that they do, her kids get something, um, different.

At their exclusive private school, the Obama daughters get food far better than you’d get at home, or in most restaurants.

Michelle Obama has made childhood obesity her pet issue, much like Nancy Reagan did with drugs or Laura Bush did with literacy. Fair enough.

However, the first lady’s nutritional strictures have left school lunches a little, um, not lunch-like.

It may lead you to wonder what Michelle’s kids are getting.

Well, wonder no further! We have what Sasha and Malia are getting at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. (H/T Mad World News).

This is potato sausage soup, one of the dishes served. Alas, not halal, so not all of the president’s interest groups were well served by this.

This is firecracker slaw, which the Obama kids will have until Sen. Feinstein takes away anything that resembles or has the name “firecracker.”

This is the California chef’s salad, probably used to placate the aforementioned Sen. Feinstein.

Oh, wait. Sorry, this is one of the new Michelle Obama lunches that have been shared by frustrated public school students on Twitter. My bad.

Pineapple slices! (Okay, that’s a little weak.)

In case you’re wondering, the Sidwell Friends School costs over $36,000 a year, so it’s probably unsurprising their meals look slightly better than U.S. Airways coach class fare.

Student is Asked to Decorate Tissue Box With Presidential Quotes, His Project is AWESOME! http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2014/04/19/student-is-asked-to-decorate-tissue-box-with-presidential-quotes-his-project-is-awesome/ http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2014/04/19/student-is-asked-to-decorate-tissue-box-with-presidential-quotes-his-project-is-awesome/#comments Sun, 20 Apr 2014 00:37:29 +0000 http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/?p=93231 This one is definitely worth checking out! Obviously your average Liberal Progressive school teacher would have a conniption fit in seeing the pictures and quotes of Bill Clinton on this project, which makes it even more awesome! The presence of a firearm will probably ban this student from the school for life in our twisted age of political correctness. In our opinion, this student should get an A+++!

From The Federalist Papers:

This is from the Reddit user Saabn. If his teacher is anything like the 98% of liberal teachers out there, I bet they were none to happy with this project. I would give him an A+!

Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2014/04/07/students-fed-up-with-michelle-obamas-school-lunch-overhaul-menu-item-snapshots-spell-out-why/ http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2014/04/07/students-fed-up-with-michelle-obamas-school-lunch-overhaul-menu-item-snapshots-spell-out-why/#comments Mon, 07 Apr 2014 18:00:02 +0000 http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/?p=91510 In this the Age of Social Media, a picture is still worth a thousand words. Now that virtually everyone has a camera on their mobile phone and the internet connectivity to publish pictures instantly, it is no wonder that the backlash against Michelle Obama’s school lunch program is starting to achieve a louder volume.

Now, students don’t have to explain why the meals conceived by Michelle Obama’s plan are bad, now pictures can instantly show how lame these supposed lunch meals really are.

From The Blaze:

Editor’s Note: Some of the language used by students in this story is of the colorful variety, just so you know…

First, about one million public school students said “no way” to their cafeteria menus after Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign led to anger and frustration over food that apparently many American kids didn’t want to stomach.

But for those without other options, all that’s left is the power of social media and cell phone cameras when they simply can’t take another bite:

Nat Geo – 18 Amazing, Intimate Camera Trap GIFs of Serengeti Animals http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2013/08/13/nat-geo-18-amazing-intimate-camera-trap-gifs-of-serengeti-animals/ http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2013/08/13/nat-geo-18-amazing-intimate-camera-trap-gifs-of-serengeti-animals/#comments Tue, 13 Aug 2013 12:16:05 +0000 http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/?p=67889 Nat Geo – Biologist Craig Packer has headed the Serengeti Lion Project since 1978. The director of the Lion Research Center and Distinguished McKnight University Professor at the University of Minnesota has spent countless hours on the Serengeti plains, studying lion ecology, genetics, health, and other factors. (Hear some of Packer’s expert commentary in the interactive Serengeti Lion experience and read more in “The Short Happy Life of a Serengeti Lion.”)

Packer spoke to National Geographic on the phone from Zanzibar, where a Muslim call to prayer could be heard in the background. “I was always puzzled as to how lions fit into the broader context of the Serengeti,” Packer said.

“They have the reputation as the king of the beasts, but what does that really mean?” he asked.

Aston Martin reveals Batmobile-like anniversary speedster http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2013/05/28/aston-martin-reveals-batmobile-like-anniversary-speedster/ http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2013/05/28/aston-martin-reveals-batmobile-like-anniversary-speedster/#comments Tue, 28 May 2013 11:49:04 +0000 http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/?p=61590 To celebrate 100 years of Aston Martin, the car company has unveiled the CC100 concept car, which looks like something Adam West’s Batman might drive in 2013.

It looks strangely like something Adam West’s Batman might drive in 2013, but Aston Martin’s 100th anniversary CC100 speedster wasn’t designed with superheroes in mind, camp or otherwise. Instead, the yellow-and-blue-gray speedster is an homage to the company’s heritage as a manufacturer of luxury sports cars.      More
