When liberals put the word “My” in front of anything connected to Obama or a policy associated with his wife Michelle, rest assured that the “My” is there as a ploy to convince the easily duped that accepting what has been chosen for them somehow equates to exercising the freedom of choice that no longer exists.
The “My” mentality was introduced during the 2008 election with the birth of mybarackobama.com. The mybarackobama.com tagline read “because it’s about YOU,” and was created by multitudes of Obama sycophants hoping to elect a man who’s proven it’s “all about him”, and has since expunged every iota of individuality from both supporters and critics alike.
Then there was a Michelle/USDA initiative called “MyPlate”, where the intent was to eliminate the food pyramid and replace it with a brightly-colored plate divvied up into portion-and-food choices for those who need a government overseer to instruct them like kindergarteners on what and how much they should be eating.
Trust me, the “Choose” in ChooseMyPlate.gov and the “My” in “MyPlate” have nothing to do with individual selection and everything to do with Mama Obama making food choices for confused, malnourished individuals who, whether they like Brussels sprouts or not, will learn to love Brussels sprouts.
And for those turning up their noses at cruciferous vegetables, word to the wise: even Barack Obama has warned, “you don’t want to get on the wrong side” of Michelle.
So for now, putting Michelle Obama’s Gestapo scare tactics aside, thus far the “My” inventiveness has been so unsuccessful that the feds have come with a new “My” that may soon be cruising down the pike…er, I mean the grocery aisle, and it’s called “MyCarts.”
In an effort to steer the pudgy clear of the Oreo Double Stuffs and inspire them to head straight for the shiitake mushrooms, “MyCarts” hopes to install $30,000 worth of talking shopping carts in supermarkets that can chat with sheep disguised as customers.
This ingenious idea is undoubtedly Target-shopper Michelle Obama’s brainchild, but is being proposed by the USDA, which is putting out an 80-page report outlining the plan.
The program is specifically directed toward helping SNAP recipients meet the healthy-food quotas of the woman who is known to indulge in Shake Shack burgers.
Just like the colorful “MyPlate,” the grocery carts will be color-coded and divided into healthy food groups. This can get confusing, so here goes: Red apples in the red section, salad greens and celery in the green section, and bananas in the yellow section. What’s unclear is whether or not, if Orange Crush and Cheetos are placed in the orange section, an electric shock will be administered, just to deter disobedience.
Either way, if the shopper heeds the first lady’s injunctions, the chattering pushcart will inform the compliant that they are eligible for a prize. Yippee! The carts, which will require food chains to invest millions in order to accommodate the childish concept, will say: “You achieved a MyCart healthy shopping basket!”
In other words, Michelle “MyCart” Obama wants to make sure SNAP recipients are purchasing foods she approves of, and if in the process, quashing marketing messages the government disapproves of infringes upon a corporation’s ability to make money and provide jobs – all the better.
Moreover, let’s not forget that all this merriment is being planned while veterans die on VA hospital waiting lists, illegals inundate the air we breathe with deadly contagions, Putin’s henchmen murder innocent civilians, and Israel fights against Hamas.
Nonetheless, when shoppers check out, in addition to getting free taxpayer-funded food they’ll also get discount coupons for submitting to being prodded like cattle toward low-fat over full-fat cheese, and movie tickets to every mindless motion picture in theaters – except the ones where Dinesh D’Souza exposes Obama’s goal to exercise complete control over every American’s life.
And if all that is not exciting enough, if the USDA/Mama Obama proposal is adopted, the perks of progressive mind control will also include making grocery store employees “ambassadors” of healthy food choices and sponsoring supermarket cooking classes to be organized by – which is just conjecture, mind you – Michelle BFF and Queen of EVOO, the woman who rose to renown giving supermarket cooking classes, Rachael Ray.
The goal of all of this is for Michelle – who quite frankly could use a lecture from a “MyCart” herself about steering that caboose of hers a little to the right or left to accommodate wide turns and aisle displays – to stage-manage the whittling of America’s midriff.
If adopted, the talkative grocery cart’s job will be to convince supermarket shoppers that being “nudged” is in fact a personal choice – which the acolytes of Cass Sunstein are well aware it is not.
As Obama continues to move America FORWARD, besides the insulting “My” prefix to plates and carts, which by now should be a warning to every American that what’s ahead has nothing to do with personal choice, endless possibilities do come to mind.
Which raises the question: What comes after “MyCart” – a government-mandated “MyToilet” that offers booty (no pun intended) for using one sheet, consolidating water by only flushing once a day, and eating more fiber?
