    Well there's the whole prohibition vs. education thing. I don't really know what the end goal is, if it some prohibition or rather if its centered around education. There's a difference. In one, those gravy fries are still there and you can still choose to eat them. But there is a program, aimed a kids, to tell them why perhaps they shouldn't eat gravy fries for every meal, exalt the benefits of exercise and healthy living. In those terms, I have no problem with it. Fact of the matter is that we do have an obesity problem. While people are free to make choices for themselves, we can work collectively and on an aggregated level (through government even) to ensure that those choices are educated.

    The other side is that those gravy fries no longer exist. You are stripped of your ability to choose the unhealthy choice. That is not a situation I could agree with. While it's ok, particularly when we have some large national problem such as obesity, to encourage good choices and healthy living; it's not ok to remove the choice. So it would depend on which end Michelle is working towards. If it's education, then it's fine. If it's prohibition, then it's not.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    With ObiKare, who cares? Someone else is paying the freight.

    You know, just because someone's paying for your healthcare doesn't mean you're healthy. You're still responsible for preventing yourself from turning into a cancerous diabetic lardass, and you're the one who has to live with yourself if you do.

    No, let me change that. Thin, non smokers should have reduced premiums. That sounds better. OOOps, Sarah Palin's Alaska is on! You all don't wanta miss it! :-)[/QUOTE]

    yes, go watch it, it will be off the air soon
    This may be the jumping-of-the-shark for Palin. A 'reality' show that nobody watches.

    I saw on the news the other day she was beating the hell out of some poor damn fish. Looked like a fool.

    I think the media is as saturated as it can get with her. Only the true believers can bear to watch her.

    I saw the actual show, your statement is idiotic. You're just revealing your true lean, and proving me correct about that. Thanks.

    You're using the quoting feature wrong.

    Anyway, who was it beating the crap out of those fish?

    How many poor fish have been tortured just for some catch and release.

    or fillet and eat?

    Lord, I hope they weren't planning to release those poor concussed things. They'd just swim in circles, upside down.

    You know, all I could think about when I saw her doing that is how that film would be used in ads by her opponents if she runs for President.

    Re: Palin's reckless views on obesity

    Please get past the personal attacks they show a lack of ability to discuss issues intelligently.

    The name calling really shows ignorance as well.

    The only one reckless is M. Obama and her total hypocrisy. For Thanksgiving the Obama's had something like 9 different kinds of pies and I saw no mention of any of them being sugar free or nonfat.


    What is that? Oh fried chicken, sorry fried food is not healthy.


    Every time the Obama's are shown on vacation almost every month, we see pictures of them taken eating Ice cream and it's never reported that it is sugar and fat free, because it's not.


    The pictures a fake but what it depicts is very real, and it his brand I understand.

    Until the Obama's stop eating things like the Pizza they had for lunch when Obama spent tens of thousands of dollars to have made by a cook they flew in from Texas, eat ice cream all the time, have 9 pies for Thanksgiving dinner, and Hussein still smokes I say Michelle should keep her mouth shut.

    If she wants to help the Nation she should reduce her million dollar personal staff back to what the numbers where when Mamie Eisenhower was First lady.

    And yes I know she is only spending a little more the Laura Bush, and Hillary and they spent way too much as well. No one elected them and we shouldn't have to pay for their vanity needs.

    LOL

    And pie

    Can't forget the pie - Obama loves the pie.

    But he rides a bike - well - he use to.
