Miss Oklahoma--A Woman For Food Freedom!

Julie Gunlock

Did you watch the Miss America contest?  I missed it this year, but if you were paying attention you might have heard Miss Oklahoma Betty Thompson's fantastic freedom-loving answer to Biggest Loser coach (and pageant judge) Chris Powell's question about whether the government should have a role in what Americans feed their kids.  Thompson said

"I believe that parents should be the ones who are teaching their children how to eat and then it wouldn't be the government's responsibility to step in."

With answers like that, it's no wonder Miss Thompson was voted America's Choice pick by online fans.
