Trump Administration About To Throw Michelle Obama School Lunch Rules In The Crapper

There will be rejoicing in schools across America.

Via The Hill:
Newly minted Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is expected to unveil a new rule Monday aimed at giving schools more flexibility in meeting federal nutrition standards for school lunches.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Friday that Perdue and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will make the announcement at the Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg, Va., where they are expected to eat lunch with the students.
Republicans have long been trying to dial back the standards that became a pillar of former first lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to curb childhood obesity in the U.S.

Flying United's "Not So Friendly Skies"

United needed to bump 4 people who had already boarded off their overbooked flight so four of their employees could fly. No one accepted their crappy vouchers. So, they selected four random "volunteers." One man wasn't willing to give up his seat. So, United brought security on board and beat the shit out of him. This is what flying has come to in America. You get fondled by TSA and flight crews have more power over you than prison guards would if you were an incarcerated felon. I have given up flying for pleasure trips. I drive or stay home. If I have a flight I have to take, United will be my last choice. It's time for the sheeple to stand up.
