Food and Drink

There's a limit

This seems quite reasonable to me, but I suspect we're so deep into the welfare-state mentality that it will seem cruel and coldhearted to a lot of people:

WASHINGTON – Indiana will begin cutting off food stamp benefits next year to tens of thousands of people who fail to get a job or train for work.

Cheers to the chief

I love lists like this -- "A complete list of every president's favorite drink" -- because they make our chief executives seem almost human instead of the narcissistic, ruthless tyrants they actuall are. I note there doesn't seem to be a teetotaler teetotaler among them, although a few had pretty much quit drinking by the time they got to the White House -- Eisenhower, for ecample, because of his several heart attacks and George W. Bush because his acknowledged alcoholism. I love this story about Richard Nixon:

Attention, weenie shoppers

It appears that the pretentious, save-the-earth weenies are closer to world domination than I had supposed:

Whole Foods plans to start rolling out a system that ranks fruits and vegetables as "good," ''better" or "best" based on the supplier's farming practices.

Ta-ta, Kmart

Kind of a milestone, I guess:

The Kmart stores in Fort Wayne and Decatur will close in early December, the parent company of Kmart said Tuesday.

Both stores will begin liquidation sales Sunday, spokesman Howard Riefs of Sears Holding Company said in an email Tuesday.

Eat it

Eat at will!

We don't even have to talk about global warming climate change to discredit that "the science is settled" nonsense. Been reading about new "insights" into food lately?

A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine adds to the body of evidence that cutting back on carbs, not fat, can lead to more weight loss.

Cooking

If you thought home coooking was a good thing, a way for the family to share and enjy quality time together, well, silly you. Don't you know home coooking is a tool of oppression?

The grilled cheese revolution

Victims of the nanny state revolt:

Central New York’s Fayetteville-Manlius and Baldwinsville school districts are the latest to ditch the National School Lunch Program, which was revamped in 2010 under the guidance of First Lady Michelle Obama in an effort to fight childhood obesity.

Food fight

Can't make this stuff up:

A sign advertising the bacon at a Vermont diner has been taken down after a Muslim resident complained about the sign on the Internet and sparked a massive backlash against the restaurant, Sneakers Bistro.
