This is advice given to people who choose to seek it out, not legislation or regulations. Nobody is making give up your individual and silent TV dinners and spending too much at the grocery store.
The more I think about this, the more it’s making me angry. I see comments about how much the Blaze readers value truth and how much they love traditional conservative values. We should be rejoicing that at least one person in a government position is not a complete idiot and is willing to tell people the absolute truth, that it is beneficial to spend time with your children and that it is wise to budget your money at the grocery store.

Puh-lease. Since when is recommending unplugged family time around the dinner table and advice on stretching your grocery budget a bad thing? SERIOUSLY! You’re acting upset over a government website being MORE family focused. Shameful. Shameful. Shameful. This the the first good advice I’ve heard from the USDA in a long while, and your knee jerk response is to tear it down.
It isn't the government's job to tell us how to live. You will follow all of these guidelines, yes? That is your right. Sweep your own porch and stay off of ours.
Don't need the government to do my research for my own body. What if they told a woman what to eat? War on women. Would you agree with that? What about black people? Racism.
You see MissPlace
Right Wing media is like a Recipe File box.
(Remember the Index cards before the computer and print outs?)
When they feel the need to write an article or do a show
they go to the box and pull out an index card
The author today has pulled out the card labeled = NANNY STATE
and has seasoned it with a soupcon of "attack Obama"
Rather hypocritical for the USDA to give advice on healthy eating when they allow our meat and dairy products to be pumped full of hormones and antibiotics, and our fruit and vegetables to be drowned in Roundup and pesticides.
Talk to your kids about that at dinner.
As long as the USDA allows hormones, pesticides, antibiotics, endocrine disrupters, and neurotoxins in our food supply, they shouldn't be giving advise on healthy eating or how to shop.
Most of us don't need to be advised that family time is more important than watching the boob tube.
But, but it the Government! Everything they do is bad and terrible! even if it's exactly what some people would want or do anyhow, the fact that it came from the Government means it must be attacked and ridiculed.

What possible purpose would reciting Islamic prayers and a “prayer rug assignment” be in teaching about another religion or culture? You don’t have to practice a religion to learn about it.

Since when are teachers texting students to finish their homework?

They refused to make a cake decorated to support an event which their beliefs specifically teach is wrong. They would have baked that couple a cake for any other reason. If the couple had wanted a general purpose cake, they would have got it. They denied the event, not the people.

There already are donation sites.

The couple could have all the baked goods they wanted in that store and the owners would have been fine with it. What the owners didn’t want to do was to support, through their labor, and event which they felt profoundly violated their religious beliefs. It’s not that they refused to sell baked goods to someone because they’re gay. They refused to make a specialty item for a specific event. If those people had wanted a birthday cake, they would have got one, regardless of their lifestyle.

The answer to your question is in your first statement, “I’m a guy so I don’t have any idea how it feels to have a kid inside you.”
Ok so please explain to me how you can have another human growing inside you and not know it? Since I'm just a dumb guy
Cowboy, how can a 'feeling' (which is what it amounts to, IE they feel it growing inside them, or they don't), be 'explained'?

Because of your vast experience with how it feels to be pregnant, I suppose? Or is your opinion based on your equally vast knowledge of the female reproductive system and how every woman is exactly the same?
Thanks for providing that excellent example of what Kingdomchick was referring to. She said nothing to indicate she was a liberal or pro-abortion. She made a very relevant and gentle rebuke to all the people posting who are giving credence to the belief that all conservatives are bigots. She is absolutely right. We should be better than this.

So, what you’re saying is that you don’t think the officers in this story were capable of restraining and cuffing a woman without doing this kind of damage to her face? Even if she struggled, shouldn’t they be trained how to restrain someone without beating them beforehand?

What impact do you think Obama leaving office will have on this British woman?

While better than federal prison, I still don’t think that sentence is anywhere close to fair. 8 months, 260 days of community service, and $30,000? It seems like any ONE of those punishments would fit the crime, but not all three.
Just compare what he got with the democrat donor... er, wait....
Well this is a start. NOW the federal government will start enforcing campaign laws for everybody... Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha.... Sorry, I couldn't hold that in any longer!

He acknowledged that he got what he deserved. That was his goal, to be punished as he deserved.
He wanted to be caught and punished? Wouldn't disclosing the unlawful act have been a more effective way of doing that than waiting for law enforcement to stumble across it (if it ever would have--in this case they did, but it's by no means clear from the outset of illegal conduct that it would be discovered)?
Or do you mean that ONCE he was caught, he felt he deserved to be punished and it became his goal to be punished?
I'm not quite clear on what you're trying to say.
D'Souza didn't even do anything wrong. These laws are ridiculous.

What kind of bread can you eat that is not made from grain?
Gums, like guar and xanthan gum, are just fiber powder. They’re thickeners and stabilizers, not toxic chemicals designed to kill you slowly. They can add a creamy feel to foods, which is probably their purpose in ice cream. The only danger is that if you overindulge, you may experience some bloating, just like if you consume too much fruit in one go.
That said, eat and avoid whatever you want. But do it for the right reason, not because you can’t be bothered to do some research on your own.

I was really disappointed when I realized it wasn’t him.
I’m so happy to see another rational human being in here. Some of these people are making progressive posters look right when they describe conservatives as irrational and paranoid.

John, you are out of line. There is no law that prevents people from giving free ice cream to other people if those people are willing to accept free ice cream, and there’s nothing wrong with a child being happy to receive positive reinforcement for safe behavior.
