The part that got me was when the father recounted his son’s words: “It was hard to explain to a 9-year-old the complexities of why I was telling him that we had to quit,” Miller said. “He told me, ‘Daddy, it should be like church. Everybody should be welcome.’”
Sigh, kids start out accepting but get warped by hatefulness and ignorance. The father clearly misses the point of Christianity.

SENDTHEMETEORS hit the nail on the head. Leave it to the more radical conservatives to find something wrong with drone-striking those radical terrorists. People like you who complain are the reason us Republicans can’t win elections. You guys are too extreme for the populace.

What does Ben Stein know about terror policy. He should stick to acting and doing clear eye eye drop commercials.

I hope the FBI also investigates you for inciting domestic terrorism LBJDIDIT1963.

Anyone who wants the Tea Party to be more close-minded is too radical to be a conservative!

Last I remembered, Michelle Obama wasn’t president so she can’t pass executive orders. Last I remembered, Michelle Obama didn’t make up the whole house and senate to pass a law mandating the change in textbooks. I don’t think you guys have an idea of how government works. She wasn’t forcing the publishers to change them now, just suggesting that perhaps maybe in their next print edition, they could replace fatty and sugary foods with healthier food alternatives on our children’s textbook. I don’t like Obama, and voted for McCain and Romney in the previous elections, but even I don’t have my head so far up my you know what and so biased to agree with something as simple as this. Like I said before, radicals that can’t open their minds to something like this are the reason we can’t win elections. And of course, if you don’t agree with the other person’s message, that person must obviously be a troll. Please grow up.

I don’t get what the big deal is anyways, Leave it to our conservative brothers in the states with the highest obesity rates in the country to find something wrong and say something racist over the simple idea of changing sweet and fatty foods from the text books of our children’s school work. This is why we can’t win elections. The radicals are holding us back.
You don't mind spending my money and wasting BILLIONs on changing images in textbooks.
I like apples and I like cupcakes. And I have a great suggestion of where mooche can shove 3 apples and a cream filled cupcake.
@HI - yeah no kidding or how about we zoom in on them actually learning instead of changing the flippin pics in a book. What a novel idea that would be.
Instead of wasting tax money to change textbooks, let's just exchange our uncouth First Lady with a classy Christian woman. It would be cheaper.
Pay no attention to black_conservative_tparty_patriot01...
Fake black, fake Conservative, fake Tea Party, fake patriot.
This is just a retread troll. Don't bother replying to it.
What on earth will they ever do with the children's classic Green Eggs and Ham? For some reason Egg Whites and Celery just doesn't have the same ring to it.

black_conservative is so liberal his/hers/its post is hilarious! LOL
Anyone who wants the Tea Party to be more RINO is too liberal to be a conservative!
No Tea Partier would ever condone changing text in textbooks for the "greater good" through any government action. BCTP is an instigator looking for a fight. Simple as that.
Hi Firearm and OlefromMN,
Notice that the new retread troll spells it tparty and not Tea-Party or Tea_Party in its moniker?
No true Tea Party person would do that. LOL
Michelle is obsessed with the most ridiculous and worthless details! Besides, everyone knows bananas are healthier than apples! Make everyone use bananas! What if I'm allergic to apples and bananas?!?! Oh no, what should we do?
If pop tart guns and making gun noises while holding a pencil are considered dangerous... aren't pictures of foods you're allergic to dangerous too? LOL
Because it's not enough to simply ban school children from eating sugary treats we have to ban even the mere mention of them in a text book. Clearly, cupcakes in textbooks is by far the most important issue our country faces. In fact, just think how much it will stimulate the economy when we have to reprint millions of textbooks! Win, win, win . . .
The cupcake, one of America's most iconic treats. I wonder why she chose that to go after? (not really, I know why)
FISH_BONE: I like apples and cupcakes, too. Let's replace Michele Obama. The sooner the better.
How about just creatively changing the word "cupcake" itself ?
To fit in perfectly with this entire administration-
why not use the word corrupt-cakes,
The illustration can show
Oblameo's face on top of MaMichelle's big, fat, muffin azz.
Yes, it is entirely true that the liberal professors/educators
reap the full benefit of NEW textbooks every year-
they all get to write & update them
dumpin' loads of additional "income" into their greedy pockets
at a student's expense.
A yearly inexpensive supplement would do just fine
but they prefer to do a quick rewrite of the whole hardbound textbook
charging a couple of hundred dollars a pop for each book,
so they can get their big cut
and STILL be guaranteed
the same extra "bonus" job next year
so they can still rake in the loot again on another revised edition.
It's an endless, corrupt-laden maze.
It's always about M-o-n-e-y folks, especially when it comes to
Speaking about money, OUR taxpayer money-
why doesn't Ms. In-Your-Face Michelle
start a campaign to negate cupcakes & any other junk food
from the SNAP/Food Stamp Program ?
Wouldn't APPLES be better for them ?
Such a sensible act to take
but she's too dumb to make THAT connection !
Really?? what about teaching by example???? so she doesnt have to eat rich expensive hamburgers... and she can excersice more, last time we saw her in full...... she is really full! So she should change her own "habits" and then tell us about them :):):)
No big deal. Next week female models in food ads will be replaced by dogs because you’re too stupid to not sexualize them, and will just go out and buy their fattening foods.... "And then they came for me..."
I bet she already has the shared copy right with one of the main book MFG's. I read where her and Obama were worth a little over a $$ million 4 years ago and now are worth $$ 16 million bucks . Obama made the bulk on book sales. The dream of my father was a book you couldn't give away and now it is sitting in boxes all over the USA collecting dust. I checked - it was last checked out of the local Library almost 2 years ago. A friend at the local university found out that our UV was forced to buy 105 copy's, or Federal funds would be cut off by Valerie Jarret.
Are you freaking jesting?! Are you?!
The stupid "Let's Move" campaign has cost millions of dollars.
And guess what? it is ASININE!
Does your brain go thru complete synapse B.C.TP P. ?
Go hang out in school cafeteria Jackaninny. you''ll see firsthand how successful the program is. Mrs. Obama is a vapid woman.
Anyone who wants the Tea Party to be more close-minded is too radical to be a conservative!
Not necessarily conservatives complaining when value is added to text books. More likely it is libertarians. They complain when it is good and when it is bad.
They can add the question:
If I have ten apples and you have eleven ice cubes, how many pancakes will fit on the roof?
Answer: Purple, because aliens don't wear hats
I'm Conservative to the core....but I don't see what the big deal about this one thing is to people? If someone labeled as a republican suggested this to the publishers (meaning they can take it or leave it) then no one would have a problem with it. Now I am NOT a fan of Michelle Obama (especially the ridiculously strict new lunch laws)....but really, this one thing is not a big deal...so chill out at least a little bit...lol...jeeze, your all doing what the democrats do!
Look up "The Road to Serfdom" online. You'll see that Socialists are always trying to engage the populace in "acceptable" physical fitness.
Either that, or Statist plants who come on sites like this proclaiming to be Tea Party, but vomiting Statist propaganda.
Ah, the old "closed minded" canard. Because I don't agree with you, I must be closed minded, right?
It's simply not possible that I could have a different opinion than you, could it? Who's closed minded again?
The Black Conservative guy is not liberal he is right. The Loon wing conservatives are non compromise, partisan, divisive group who will continue to push the GOP more and more away from the mainstream direction of the country.
The very fact that they cant even agree on change the ques in books from cupcakes to apples is just pathetic on thier part. And then attacks you own because they call out your own flaws.....shame.
If I was Michele I wont waste my time on the Red South and other hardline conservatives states.....not worth the time to try to change their obese ways IMO. Let them have their fired butter sticks and moonshine.
I just love how Conservatives complain about how their pol masters use taxpayer loot.
But Conservatives have no problem whatsoever taking my money to spend it on their blatantly socialist "social safety net".
Yep,that little retread troll is none other than encinom,head rump-ranger of the leftwing trolls........

Who cares if he didn’t return a salute. Obama is the president, not a soldier. I’m pretty sure the soldier appreciated the handshake, more than a salute. Move along folks, non-issue here.
May 24, 2013 at 1:31pm
I thought you guys were true republicans like me. If you guys were true conservatives, you wouldn’t let your personal religion get in the way of the constitution of our country, where our founding father Thomas Jefferson once said, a “wall of separation between church and state”. God bless this brother for forcing this town to remove the cross and enforce the constitution. He is a true American. God bless that man. Glenn Beck should have him on the radio to discuss his courage.

I don’t get what the big deal is even if he used information from media matters. I mean we’re all after the truth aren’t we? I hate media matters as much as the next guy, but nothing media matters said in the article was false. Seems pretty straight forward when you cross check with AP and other news sources that what they said there was true. Are we here on this page to go after the truth or just pile on blindly and insult each other and the president of our country guys?
