      Single Mom Makes $89,844/Yr in Her Spare Time on The Computer Without Selling Anything. you can bring from $5000-$8000 of extra income every month. working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger.
      The potential with this is endless…>>>>>> ­­­­­𝗪­­­­­𝘄­­­­­𝘄­­­­­.­­­­­𝗡­­­­­𝗲­­­­­𝘄­­­­­𝗔­­­­­𝗽­­­­­𝗽­­­­­𝟳­­­­­.­­­­­𝗖­­­­­𝗼­­­­­𝗺

    3:35, It’s a minor detail but I really liked that she correctly called the US “one of the richest nations on this Earth” instead of using the all too common ignorant propaganda “the richest nation on this Earth”.

    Maybe if they gave people a living wage and medicare she wouldn’t need to help feed them!!! Propaganda to show how they “care”…Colbert and Obama can piss off.

    How many millions of dollars did these two make again through these segments in a matter of minutes while they profit and wax on what they are responsible for through their greed? Children are starving only because somehow the rich can make yet even more money by highlighting the results of their actions. FOH! #fakeAF

    We are also a nation that wastes a third of the food produced; where grocery stores discard perfectly edible products then lock the dumpster. If they gave it away for free, they lose profit. Capitalism is beautiful isn’t it?

    As the first lady. she watched her husband bail out the banks while millions of hard working Americans lost their homes to foreclosure, affecting their lives forever. Many of theses families are the people struggling for food today. This money could have been given directly to them , not wall street banks, keeping them solvent and healthy. My hope, she is motivated by guilt.

    America went from Camelot to Mordor when the Obamas left the White House and the Trump’s moved in. Sadly, the battle of light and dark still rages. May the return to the principles of Camelot win out over the forces that threaten the very existence of American democracy. And Michelle, still shines a light on the road to salvation.

    Families won’t go hungry if they are allowed to work and feed their families. The Biden Cartel is out of control.

    I made the same mistakes: as a single parent with a good but demanding job, I bought what foods were quick and easy (fast foods and processed foods). Unlike Michelle, I never stopped to realize how the foods I chose were effecting my children’s health. We’re all now obese and I’m trying to reverse a lot of that bad programming. I’m constantly apologizing to my kids for not caring more about their diet and health.

    I find it completely disingenuous that people are going hungry because if you’re poor enough and I am actually poor enough to qualify for food stamps-EBT or SNAP as it is called. even on social security which for me is less than $1,000 a month and I own my house still paying my mortgageI get $60 a month. also with covid29 of course it’s almost triple that or more, and then because I’m poor enough I get Medicaid, and because I get Medicaid now I get back on a Medicare advantage which I resisted because I was being penalized for the rest of my life for not having a drug plan- I don’t do drugs I do my own healing- but I now get a food card $75 a month through the end of the year anyway. I may have to go back and get more food stamps because my income is so low, and I have a part-time seasonal business which expenses out any money I make as it’s not very much- $4,000 a year. the real problem is education and being a family and consumer science educator along with a lot of other things I have studied nutrition I continue to study nutrition but people make very poor choices in what they buy and with their food stamps-EBT and we do have food banks; we have pantries; and we’ve had this huge giveaway of food in this small county where I live in North Carolina Western North Carolina humongous amounts of food were available during covid especially since restaurants have been closed and many have gone out of business unfortunately. however, now maybe some of these programs are probablycutting back since restaurants are reopening. However, a big food bank has come through in this area and there’s tons of food they’re giving away some of those good food like sweet potatoes and chickens and potatoes tho people though don’t get enough fresh vegetables and fruits though there seem to be lots of apples. but the real problem again is lack of education about food choices. they purchasers don’t understand they need to get quality for their money/benefit- not quantity and we need more education in nutrition and I hate that the cooperative extension service had to drop there Enip-acronym expanded nutrition and information program- quite a few years ago which was a very excellent program to help educate people on nutrition.

    My family taught me that no matter how little we had we saved some of it for later and that we also shared some of it with others who needed it more. Those simple acts led my siblings and me to be able to retire in our 30’s and 40’s. I’m glad that it is something that I have passed onto my own kids. They enjoy going to drop off food every week to various programs and look forward to it. It’s weird that helping others is selfishly good for yourself.

    She makes the point that has been largely ignored, mainly that there are unhealthy and healthy calorie choices. Unfortunately the pandemic has greatly inflated the cost of seafood, healthy lean proteins, produce etc. I don’t know how working people can afford to feed their family with these increased grocery prices

    I got a letter from the health department when my child was 5. Why in the world do schools take “BMI” on kids? It’s so outdated. Pediatrician said she was fine. She’s now 21, 5’9, slim and healthy. Believe me, the health department got a mouthful from me at the time. They never took her BMI again. 🤣

    Well if she wants to feed those who need it, then why didn’t she and Barach take the $ 20 million they paid for a summer residence in Matha’s Vineyard last year , and feed all those who are hungry? Ya Michelle put your money where your mouth is !! God these rich so and so’s are all talk, but her husband was in the White House for 8 years, why didn’t he/she do something about it then when they had the power to do so?? ?
