Tennessee School Leader Mocks Michelle Obama’s Bake Sale Restrictions: We Can’t Fundraise Selling Carrot Sticks
In Michelle Obama’s increasingly pathetic bid to gain control over every aspect of the lives of American families, she’s decided she’s not content with just controlling what kids eat for their school lunches — she wants to ban bake sales now, too! So schools will not only have to lose money on her idiotic school lunch program, they’ll also have to lose fundraising money, earning Michelle a nice serving of criticism from Tennessee school administrators.
The Tennessee State Board of Education has passed sweeping new restrictions on student bake sales in order to be compliant with federal rules on school snacks, and a lot of people are unhappy about it.
In order to comply with the Michelle Obama-inspired regulations, Tennessee schools will only be allowed to have bake sales 30 days per school year.
State Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman said it was “quite remarkable” that food fundraisers would be regulated by how many days they can be held, noting that this will prevent high school sports teams from holding weekly food fundraisers, according to The Tennessean.
Others were more direct in their criticism.
“It’s unbelievable to me the amount of guidelines that are there,” state Board of Education Chairman Fielding Rolston said, according to the newspaper. […]
Sevier ridiculed the regulations, saying, “If I thought I could generate revenue selling carrot sticks, I could tear it up.”
There’s a reason that each and every one of Michelle Obama’s food and fitness initiatives have ended up as such bitter failures — the woman has no idea what she’s talking about, and yet somehow thinks being the First Lady means she has the wisdom and authority to make these kinds of sweeping decisions for us. Sorry, Michelle, but you’re actually a clueless moron who really needs to give it up, already.
