Does Michelle Obama Know the Government Is Giving Grants to Potato Chip Companies?

I can't believe she's be happy if she knew this:
North Fork Potato Chips won a federal grant last week and is now planning to expand its marketing reach, company officials said Thursday.

Carol Sidor, who owns the 170-acre Sidor Farm in Mattituck with her husband, Martin, said she’s “very pleased and excited” about winning a $49,990 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and hopes the additional funding will help her family business increase its sales.

“Getting the big contracts is a hard job,” Ms. Sidor said. “I’m sure this will be a big help. We wouldn’t be able to do it otherwise.”
How will making sure this company sells more potato chips gonna keep kids from getting fat? Seems like the administration is giving very mixed signals.

If Michelle were concerned about mixed signals, she'd do something about her husband stuffing his face at Five Guys. "Don't tell my wife I'm eating here, ha ha ha!"

It's all fun and games until kindergardners have their lunch boxes confiscated by government inspectors.
