    Palin's reckless views on obesity

    Palin's reckless views on obesity - CNN.com

    The author states, in part:

    (CNN) -- It's clear that we can't go 24 hours without Sarah Palin saying something so stupid that it defies logic, but leave it to the Kim Kardashian of politics to find something wrong with first lady Michelle Obama's effort to curb obesity in America's kids.

    In a radio interview on Wednesday with conservative talker Laura Ingraham, Palin took dead aim at the first lady's "Let's Move" initiative, which is all about getting children active and involved in exercise and healthy eating.

    In the wacky world of Wasilla's finest, Palin tries to cast the effort to fight obesity as part of Michelle Obama's "different worldview."

    Here is a portion of the transcript from HuffingtonPost.com: "Take her anti-obesity thing that she is on. She is on this kick, right. What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat.

    "And I know I'm going to be again criticized for bringing this up, but instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician or politician's wife priorities, just leave us alone, get off our back and allow us as individuals to exercise our own God-given rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track."

    Hmmm. "Let's Move" is Obama's "kick?" Maybe someone should kick Sarah Palin so she can understand how devastating obesity is to the future of the United States.

    I don't know who is contributing to the hype on Palin more, conservatives or liberals. Seems to be a dead heat these days.

    Just stop already.

    Maybe Roland Martin should learn what liberty means or maybe he should learn what people eat is not the business of the government. Palin with all her faults does understand these two simple ideas. You can't have the government sitting in the corner judging what we eat or how we feed or children. Its not their place, its our place, and its our responsibility to do it wisely or not. Its really this simple, you're either for making your own decisions or your not. You can't have the government having a say and expect your say will continue to have the same weight. I understand that some people are idiots, yes I do, but that is their problem, not mine, and I would and I obviously she would, like it to stay that way. The only way to keep it that way is keep responsibility for ones actions in place.

    Re: Palin's reckless views on obesity

    When people have demonstrated a pattern of making bad decisions, trusting them to make the right decisions for our future is irrational and dangerous. If we were making the right decisions for our children in the face of the obesity epidemic, there wouldn't be any obesity epidemic for us to worry about.

    Getting this country back on track means getting people to behave correctly. If force is the only way the government can accomplish this, so be it.

    I tend to agree with this, and I find it hilarious. I say the more overload the better.

    I wonder what Mrs Palin's views are on (when she isn't looking at her ally North Korea from her house) on the socialist NFL?: Play 60 Kids - NFLRUSH

    Well, ok, so how do I say he is a hypocrite in this kind of thread and not break the rules? Can I just not point it out? If that is so, can I point out that Roland Martin is a hypocrite? .
