Michelle Obama Used to Be Organic
used to be organic

(Healingtalks) When Michelle Obama first entered the White House, she wished to share her spirited persona – her style, beliefs, and pet projects. This included growing an organic garden with children and in order to inspire a connection with deeper nature as well as to help a nearby food bank. Not since Eleanor Roosevelt grew a Victory Garden at the White House during World War II had a First Lady again tilled that soil. But it was the first time the garden was distinctively postured as organic, thereby “breaking new ground.”
Ms. Obama teaching a lesson to children
The intention of Mrs. Obama was simply to educate children about growing their own pure, unadulterated whole food – and at a time when the opposite, or processed foods contributed and were causing an epidemic of obesity and diabetes in the United States. This was a valuable lesson in nutrition and growing food to high and pure standards. The Obama White House garden was grown organically and using the methods of farming this country has used for centuries to yield the most nutrition and “clean” foods to Americans.
Setting an inspiring example
- with the whole family involved
The garden was 1,100 square feet, and 23 children from Bancroft Elementary School from Washington D.C., helped her dig the garden and plant the vegetables near the Obama swing set. Barack Obama, the President promised to pull the weeds when necessary and even Michelle’s mother was involved as a supervisor. Michele Obama broke the ground with her own foot, tilled the soil with the children to produce a magnificent garden that yielded fresh, organic and non-pesticide food for her own First Family. Many Americans were inspired because they naturally prefer produce that is locally grown – the way it was a century ago in usually extended-family and small farm settings.
Big Ag and the chemical/GMO industry didn’t see it that way
- Organic Food
- Organic Gardening
- Pesticide-Free Food
The lobbyists correctly instructed Michelle Obama instead to use the term:
- “Crop protection food products” – with Round Up, Monsanto GMO seeds and non-traditional chemically agriculture being more essential.
Why Mrs. Obama grew her “nasty” garden
Mrs. Obama noticed the family was eating too much processed foods so that her girls, Sasha and Malia, were gaining weight. Then her pediatrician advised her to have them move away from eating junk foods – those that included excessive salt, sugar and fat.
But Mrs Obama succumbed to “better” advice from political forces
Her family needs soon became secondary to the required political messages enforced by lobbyists who pay big mullah to elect politicians. They silenced her misguided zeal about organic gardening.
Who pulls the puppet strings in Washington, DC.
Michelle should have known better!
Mrs Obama’s dangerous and maverick project thus had to be stopped
The Obama Obama’s infamous organic garden- shame on her!
Whose telling our government what best to do
Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) and organization that lobbies for the pesticide and Big Ag industry sent Mrs. Obama a letter to instruct her about living in a different world than our grandparents. It advised her that their lifestyle was not what most Americans want anymore.
Mrs Obama had to be “set right”
The First Lady should fall in line and serve her family only pesticide-rich foods to promote a future population suffering from cancer and other high-maintenance systemic illnesses. Corporate profit interests must, after all, come first – far before health, safety, eating nutritious foods. Thus Mrs Obama had to be “set right” by MACA. This same group represents Monsanto, Dow AgroScience, Dupont Corporation and so on. The fact that Michelle Obama did not use pesticide-sprayed seeds at all, and did not need to spray chemicals on her plot shows she needs some serious “re-education.” The group advised her not ever to use the word organic or to promote organic gardening in any way.
Better living through chemistry
One shouldn’t believe that pesticides or pesticide-sprayed seeds, plants, foods, and processed foods containing GMOs all are linked to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and birth defects. Rather we should follow the greater leadership of Tom Vilsack – a former defense lawyer for Monsanto. We should applaud that Vilsack was named Secretary of Agriculture by the Obama administration and for reasons not of influence peddling by big agriculture and campaign donations – but because it was the right thing to do.
Obama’s “wisdom” and trying to be with the times stretches only so far
Its a private secret.
