    Again, my comment was directed to the Rat's comment that government should force people to behave a certain way. My views on the recommendations can be found in post #113.

    Is Mrs. Obama proposing legislation to force you or me to do anything?
    I may be wrong.

I saw some things in there that I don't think will work, but that is it.. Now what is the top three points or so that you have the most problems with?
    I guess I'll just have to agree to disagree with those on this thread.
    I see the whole thing as a big government wanting to grow even bigger. I see the boogie man around the corner disquised in words like recommended. I feel the "nudge" that no one else seems to feel. Either that or they don't care how big the government grows or how much power it will have over our individual lives. In fact they seem to look forward to it.

    There are plenty of reasons to disagree with many of thing politician do w/o having to make things up to be afraid of. all imho ymmv
    Palin's comment is one of the distasteful things that politicians do by exaggerating and fear-mongering.
    I may be wrong.

    His comments are gross. But iirc, he is a fascist after all, so what do you expect?
    I may be wrong.

    I'd bet that you and I might disagree on who is ****ing things up, but I do agree with you, completely, on principle. This is why the flow between the individual and society goes both ways. Each has some responsibility towards the other.

    Yeah, fear can make you believe in things that aren't really happening.
