14. Socialized grocery stores!!!
This is outrageous!!!

Aren't America's grocery stores good enough for Michelle Obama? Sure, they've got
miles of aisles of processed junk, fats that will kill you and enough hidden high fructose
to kill a small country---but, come on!

Big Ag needs their billions!

Who does this Michelle Obama think she is...buying fresh, organic produce from local farmers.

It's socialism!!!! Stop this rebel woman before she tries to buy that squash!!!!

17. I think this is great...
and I don't even like vegetables. We need more farmers' markets and fewer corporate farms and imported veggies.

19. OK, I like her. Satisfied?
I think she is a very good First Lady and I admire how she is attempting to and succeeding at connecting to the populace.

I still would prefer Hillary to Obama; but, I do like some things Obama has done, and his personality and Michelle's is infectious.

20. My god,
I knew it! I knew that my mother and every other "Good Housekeeping" mother in the country was a damn pinko commie when she tried to feed me broccoli and other evil doer vegetables. :sarcasm:

To hell with your farm stands, fresh fruits, vegetables, and well balanced diets incorporating an appropriate portion of grains, wheat, and protein! :rofl:
