I heard there is a bill on its way to President Barack Obama brought up by Michelle Obama regarding cupcakes. Now isn’t that important? I’ll bet that will be passed with no problem. People bombing each other, children stuffed in rooms from the border, vets dying while not being able to see a doctor, IRS in shambles, people in Chicago shooting each other, a soldier in a Mexican jail that the president could have helped but didn’t ... should I go on? Now we hear about cupcakes that need to be banned. They may fund a field trip, or some good cause, or maybe they just like cupcakes. I think Girl Scout cookies should be next. They have been around forever. Michelle Obama, I think you should leave food up to parents and tend to your own children. The government is intervening in too much of our lives. We like cupcakes.
