I like Olive Garden, but looks like they'd rather suck up to Michelle

than their customers.
Now comes word that Torquemada HHS Secretay Kathleen Sebelius has approved a whopping 111 waivers for businesses of all sizes, along with more unions and other providers of health insurance. The escapees include employers of many low-wage and part-time workers whose health insurance plans would otherwise be dropped, including Darden Restaurants — the parent company of the Olive Garden and Red Lobster and other chains, which employ some 34,000 people.
Michelle Obama said Thursday that a pledge by the Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants and their sister chains to serve healthier meals is a “breakthrough moment” for the industry.

Darden Restaurants Inc. is pledging to cut calories and sodium in its meals by 10 percent by 2016, and 20 percent over a decade. Among promised changes for children: no more french fries. A fruit or vegetable side will become standard with kids’ meals. One percent milk also will be served, including free refills, unless an alternative drink is ordered
You screw with my meal, I won't give you any more of my money; how about that?

I think Olive Garden food sucks...I'll only suck worse when it caters to that fat cow. And I suspect Michelle wouldn't bother to eat such meals.

As far as Red Lobster goes, anybody who eats there deserves what they get.

Either there is a better seafood restaurant nearby or you should be looking for a burger or a salad, not previously frozen rock lobster tails or shrimp.

Damn I always enjoyed the food at those two places. Have to go tell them I won't be bothering them any more.

Weer'd, OG has a few things I like, not real fond of Red Lobster.

You don't understand. Now that they are approved by Michelle you will eat there, you will give them money, or you will pay a fine.

Kinda like your new healthcare.
