    Re: Palin's reckless views on obesity

    I remember when MTV started, Loved it! I also remember no internet and when most was still BB's

    I also remember a one room school house in the mountains 1st - 4th grades with 10 students. 8 from the same family. I was one of the two odd ones out.

    Sarah Palin is the object of Leftism's sexual fetish. Leftists are masochists in search of sadists.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    For those of you scoffing at current food pyramid here is what it says on MyPyramid.gov - United States Department of Agriculture - Home

    Grains: Make at least 3 of your 6 ounces of grains whole, wheat, etc. I could see a big problem there saying to just split it up.

    Vegetables: About as much as grains and suggest dark greens and orange veggies which are well, very healthy.

    Fruits: It just says eat a bunch basically...

    Oils: Limit them obviously but says to try and get them from fish, nuts, olive oil

    Milk: Nasty fat-free milk

    Meat: Suggest fish and poultry heavily

    Is it perfect? Not by a long shot but it is much more in line with what we know now helps most people keep a balanced diet.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I'm sure you told your Grandkid... no... didn't vote for Washington, not Liberal enough for me. He actually believed in the Constitution!

    As for the DoE; it's time to close it and hand power back to the states and localities. When the government screws things up, the nation is screwed. Better to have hundreds of experiments and actually have standards raised.

    Jeez, they have a new one, after screwing up majestically on the first one. Adding significantly to obesity and heart disease. They can take their food pyramid and sit on it.

    It's not their business, and we could save billions annually when the Dept of H&H is closed.

    Yeah, and we could have some communities teaching kids modern fashion, with underwear showing, bling, body piercings while other communities teach kids how to swallow ubercon koolaid without gagging. Uniformity of standards is too important to leave in the hands of "local" politicians who are already the product of a bad system.

    Well let them teach Bling and Gonchy Pull Fashion. You know what would happen to those schools? DOA. Who would choose to send their kids to such places. Not enough for them to survive.

    As I stated, standards would increase.

    And what would "Ubercon Kool-Aid" be? The Constitution? Love of country? An examination of American exceptionalism? How we became the great nation we are (warts and all)? Hey, perhaps kids would know that Washington was a little before Grandpa's time! Wouldn't that be something!

    It's better to have localities run things. They're closer to the people. More accountable, and there would be more flexibility.

    Your obsessions on the constitution aside, and your naive thinking that local politicians are any more honest or competent than national politicians, you have no proof that standards would improve, not even any evidence....

    "Obsessions on the constitution"... LOL... that is a damn revealing comment. At least you admit you don't think much of the it, and therefore I suppose you believe it can be ignored when it stands in the way of your beliefs. If so, you Pelosi, Obama and every other SAP have a lot in common.

    Nothing naive about giving control to the localities. It's been proven the distant behemoth does a poor job.

    When parents can choose where to send their kids, the pressures of the marketplace would help weed out poor performers. Poor performing schools, adminstrators and teachers.
