Attack Of The Lunch Police
A stuffed up Sean Hannity, still recovering from a head cold, took the Wednesday airwaves and discussed a story out of South Carolina in which a preschooler's packed lunch was taken away because it was "not nutritious." The young girl's turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes . The girl's mother said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a "healthy lunch" would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25. "This is insane. I remember my father would slap two pieces of meat onto some bread and threw it into a bag...I never ate it!v said Sean. "I usually would either eat some of my friend's lunch or buy some cookies or cupcakes with money I had in my pocket. The school substituted her turkey sandwich with chicken nuggets. Since when were chicken nuggets healthy? Where do we get the money to hire food inspectors? What process do they go through to be hired?" To read more on this crazy story, please click here.

Obama's 2013 Budget An Exercise In Futility?
President Obama's $3.8 trillion budget was unveiled yesterday and it includes massive new spending and nearly $2 trillion in tax increases over the course of the next decade. Lynne Cheney, filling in for Sean on last night's episode of 'Hannity', discussed Obama's budget with Fox Business host Stuart Varney. Varney summed up "The Anointed One's" budget with two words - a mess. "This budget adds to the debt, raises taxes and increases spending. At the end of the budget period, at the end of 10 years, we will be $26 trillion in debt as opposed to the $15-16 trillion we are in now. If this budget goes through, which it won't, but if it did, we would be paying almost $20 billion a week in interest alone. That is not supportable. You can't do that. We are, therefore, given this budget, heading towards a budget crisis," Varney explained. Dana Perino, co-host of "The Five" on Fox Business, also weighed in.
