    Re: Palin's reckless views on obesity

    Is Michelle Obama proposing laws about what we are allowed to feed ourselves and our children?

    If so, I am opposed to that. If not, I call bull****.
    I may be wrong.

    What actually is being proposed? Is Michelle Obama actually advocating taking peoples' children away from them?
    I may be wrong.

The majority of teen moms don't really have such a family safety net to fall on.
    I think the government has the vested interest in promoting and securing a environment to raise kids, but the actual duty falls upon the parent.

    Shouldn't throw stones at glass houses, or does your opinion apply to all teenage mothers, this doesn't sit well with your leaning. It is the government who promotes teenage sex which creates what you call F ups. BTW Hatuey how can you hate some one you don't even know especially a kid.

    Can you provide an example of Michelle Obama advocating that the govt "take over and make decisions for us" in regards to what we eat or feed our children?
    A single example to start would be nice.
    I may be wrong.

    Liberals want ignorant even Anti-Americans like the Obamas telling them what to think, what to say, what to eat and how to go about living their daily lives because they are too confused by the choices given them under the Constitution's guaranteed freedoms they can't think for themselves, and even have to have the worst people in American History telling them how to raise their Children like good little Socialist/Marxists non thinking clones.
    partisan much? Do you think the average listeners of political pundits are any smarter than those you criticize?
    If you have to get your "knowledge" from Pundits, you are handicapped from the start.

    how is she going to "make" us do that? Will there be criminal penalties? Civil penalties? Will she give us the stink eye? How will she enforce her draconian will?
    I may be wrong.

    Michelle Obama has been taking food out of people's hands? Or no? Does you analogy follow if MO hasn't done so?

    Has Michelle Obama forced kis to do anything? What means did she use to "force" them?

    In what manner has MO tried to force her will down my throat?
    I may be wrong.

    This crusade on obesity has nothing to do with the cost to society.
    It's about control.
    It also will not make people thin unless you plan to lock them up and monitor everything they eat.
    Education is fine, but regulation and more spending? No way.
    How does informing the public about childhood obesity and encouraging healthy eating habits equate to "government intervention" or taking away one's freedoms? You really need to turn off your radio and change the channel from FoxNews and find new hobbies. Get out, get some fresh air then come back with a clear head.

    reminds me of a certain drug war, except one is reality, the other appears to be overblown exaggeration.
