michelle …. our pal …..

How in the world have we managed to live this long without Mrs. Obama’s nutritional input.

I guess every first lady just HAS to have a program but I’ll be darned if I understand why. Who voted for them?

Anyway ... Mrs. O. it appears is in partnership with Wal-Mart, it reads in our morning Telegraph, to lower prices on veggies (I guess that’s a good thing. Isn’t it?) and convinced the chain to make thousands of it’s packaged foods lower in fats and sugars. 

So I guess in addition to being the first lady, she’s also the first mama?

You can’t argue against those things that will benefit people, the argument will run.  And kids don’t generally have a choice when mom does her shopping.
BUT ... as an adult, it’s those bad things that make many foods taste better. As an adult I want to make my own choices.

There’s a drive on here to reduce salt in many foods. Which will be meaningless when ppl start pouring salt on food bought with less cos it tastes bland without it.


Michelle Obama joins forces with Wal-Mart for healthy food campaign

Michelle Obama has helped draw up an unprecedented five-year plan with Wal-Mart, America’s biggest retailer, to drop prices on fruits and vegetables and make thousands of its packaged foods lower in fats and sugars.

Joining Wal-Mart executives at a community centre in Washington, Mrs Obama described the company’s new initiative as “a huge victory for folks all across this country” and said it has the “potential to transform the marketplace”.

She said: “When I see a company like Wal-Mart launch an initiative like this, I feel more hopeful than ever before. We can improve how we make and sell food in this country.”

Wal-Mart, which has 60,000 suppliers, will make thousands of its packaged foods healthier and cheaper by 2015, build more stores in poor areas and increase its donations to nutrition programmes. Sodium and sugar will be reduced in some Wal-Mart foods and the price of fresh produce lowered.

oh right on Wal-Mart. Go ahead and build more stores in areas that looters and shoplifters will have easier access to. Nothing like having a Wal-Mart right on your doorstep.  And when they start losing money they’ll close em.
Jeesh ........ when the heck did I become this cynical?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
