    Re: Palin's reckless views on obesity

    here's the down low of how the govt is going to force this down our thraots and make decisions for us:

    from http://www.letsmove.gov/pdf/TaskForc...FullReport.pdf


    Summary of Recommendations cont

    Recommendation 5.1: Developers of local school wellness policies should be encouraged to include strong physical activity components, on par with nutrition components.

    Recommendation 5.2: The President’s Challenge should be updated to ensure consistency with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans and to ensure ease of use and implementation by schools. Private sector partners with an interest in physical activity should help enroll children in the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award program

    Recommendation 5.3: State and local educational agencies should be encouraged to increase the quality and frequency of sequential, age- and developmentally- appropriate physical education for all students, taught by certified PE teachers

    Recommendation 5.4: State and local educational agencies should be encouraged to promote recess for elementary students and physical activity breaks for older students, and provide support to schools to implement recess in a healthy way that promotes physical activity and social skill development.

    Recommendation 5.5: State and local educational agencies should be encouraged to provide opportunities in and outside of school for students at increased risk for physical inactivity, including children with disabilities, children with asthma and other chronic diseases, and girls

    Recommendation 5.6: Federal, state, and local educational agencies, in partnership with communities and businesses, should work to support programs to extend the school day, including afterschool programs, which offer and enhance physical activity opportunities in their programs

    Recommendation 5.7: State and local educational agencies should be encouraged to support interscholastic sports and help decrease prohibitive costs of sports by curbing practices such as “pay-to-play,” working with other public and private sector partners.

    Recommendation 5.8: Reauthorize a Surface Transportation Act that enhances livability and physical activity.

    Recommendation 5.9: The Environmental Protection Agency should assist school districts that may be interested in siting guidelines for new schools that consider the promotion of physical activity, including whether students will be able to walk or bike to school

    Recommendation 5.10: Communities should be encouraged to consider the impacts of built environment policies and regulations on human health.

    Recommendation 5.11: The Federal Safe Routes to School Program (SRTS) should be continued and enhanced to accommodate the growing interest in implementing Safe Routes to Schools plans in communities.

    Recommendation 5.12: “Active transport” should be encouraged between homes, schools, and community destinations for afterschool activities, including to and from parks, libraries, transit, bus stops, and recreation centers.

    Recommendation 5.13: Increase the number of safe and accessible parks and playgrounds, particularly in underserved and low-income communities

    Recommendation 5.14: The Federal government should continue to support investments in a wide range of outdoor recreation venues, such as National Parks, Forests, Refuges and other public lands, and expand opportunities for children to enjoy these venues.

    Recommendation 5.15: Local governments should be encouraged to enter into joint use agreements to increase children’s access to community sites for indoor and outdoor recreation

    Recommendation 5.16: The business sector should be encouraged to consider which resources and physical assets like fields and gyms can be used to increase students’ access to outdoor and indoor recreational venues

    Recommendation 5.17: Entertainment and technology companies should continue to develop new approaches for using technology to engage children in physical activity
    I may be wrong.

    It's funny how all these vague accusations never hold up to scrutiny.

    Fresh off from their appearance on the restore socialism stage - where they collected crucial data regarding controlling masses of people - Jamie and Adam get recruited by Michelle Obama to test new technologies to implement her devious plan



    It seems that images of phase II where they shove a funnel into the baby's mouth and veggie-boarded the test baby with Brussel sprout puree is not available.

    In addition, the plan features Fat Panels who will decide if Granny is thin enough to live.
    I may be wrong.

    Obesity Rating for Every American Must Be Included in Stimulus-Mandated Electronic Health Records, Says HHS | CNSnews.com
    Under this mandate in the stimulus law, Secretary Sebelius issued a regulation--developed by Dr. Blumenthal--that requires that all EHRs keep track of a person’s Body Mass Index (BMI) score. Body Mass Index is a ratio between a person’s weight and height, and is used to determine whether or not someone is overweight or obese. It is the preferred method of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for measuring obesity.

    Michelle Obama has made dealing with the problem of childhood obesity the main theme of her term as First Lady.


    Nothing would surprise me with this administration.

    She is going to sit on her a** and say the government doesn't have a right to tell us to exercise, but she says government does have the authority to teach OUR kids ignorance about birth control and protection and preach virginity.. utterly sicking.

    Many conservatives like her try to have it both ways with this limited government stuff.. and it's BS. If you believe in limited government, then prove it by stop being a hypocrite..

    And the fact is, people are stupid and ignorant.. People don't raise their kids right about eating and exercising, or even proper morals or manners. I know plenty of people personally like my sister.. Feeds her son fast food and pizza, and all he does is play xbox but he isn't fat. He has high metabolism, but his diet is still unhealthy, but I think she does it out of convenience more than anything.

    I had a boss and she was the same way.. her daughter even had a health problem and she always hauled her into work everyday after kindergarten with a happy meal. She was already chubby little girl too.

    The government doesn't have to babysit people, even those people. That is not a solution, but pretending all parents know how to feed their kids, like Palin does, just offends my common sense. They say it's better to teach a man to fish, than give him one.. so it's better to teach parents and kids through public outreach or through evil community organizing..

    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.
    And raising children into a world of obesity, a lifetime of health problems and an early grave *isn't* robbing those children of liberty?

    It's not liek they're forming some sort of gestapo and punishing parents for poor diet-habits. They're just encouraging and being supportive of healthier choices.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

Obesity is exactly that kind of thing. Society is what caused the problem, and society is what will fix it. It might take time, it might not work the way you wish, but it will fix itself. There is no action that needs to be taken. The problem with people like yourself is you think you can craft society, or that you have the right to do so. Neither is so.
    Society hasn't fixed a lot of problems it's created.. Social organization and agency is what creates a lot of our problems..
