I made an account after years of just passively reading I-A-B because of this ridiculous argument. Now, I know full well that this is the internet and that arguments are by default blown out of proportion because people can hide behind their screen names, but this is just out of hand.
People, this is meant for VERY YOUNG CHILDREN. Mrs. Obama is not trying to tell an obese 40 year-old that he must have half veggies and fruits. Primary colors and simple geometric shapes work brilliantly for the target audience.
Yes, we are all talented graphic designers and could make that image for the low price of $2. Even if this were possible, the Agriculture Department must now distribute this new campaign to MILLIONS of children across the entire country. So yes, in your small town, $2 mil may be a lot but for less than $1 per child we can try to make an impact on individual lives, not to mention the incredible healthcare costs of obese Americans.
