    It's not waste of money at all. This is way better than the pyramid, much easier to understand and focuses on the basics. The $2 million include the cost of research, focus groups and the new web site. I really don't see a major issue here. This is a good thing. That old pyramid was not only wrong and confusing, it was also ugly as ****. The whole concept needed a fresh vision. I like what they've come up with.

    Why do folks get so upset if Michele "I'm only just now proud of my country" Obama gets any criticism at all?

    If the criticism is legit i'll listen to it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

They know their parents will feed them whatever they want when they get home. So I'm not sure what the solution is there...
    Some kids may not eat all their breakfast and lunch. But there will be many who will cave into hunger because chances are if they are eating school lunch and breakfast then their parents or parent can not afford to eat at McDonalds or some other fast food place.Seeing how kids eat at school 2 times a day for five days a week and lot of these kids are on the free or reduced price school lunch program then this is the perfect place to get kids to start eating healthy food. They can throw out the pizza,prepackaged foods,Chili,fast food and fried foods that are served in a lot of schools.


    I agree that PE should be mandatory for at least 2 times a week. And they need to be taught how to be healthy, not just how to play games.
    Why only 2 times a week? When I went to school we did PE/gym class Monday through Friday. Some days we played a sport, some days we ran and or did other exercises. In one of the elementary schools I went to one of the things our Gym/PE teacher liked to do on Fri-days is have us run laps around the gym for 20 minutes and then the rest of the gym time was what was considered free time were we could run through a fun obstacle course all we wanted,play basketball if we wanted or some other fun activity.


    Schools with careful planning could arrange the child's classes so that the child has to practically walk from one end of the school to the other or up the stairs to their next classes.




    When tax payer funded schools are serving junk food and not mandating PE or anything else to improve the child's health we are not helping. All these food nazis who act as though McDonalds are forcing parents to eat fast food, parents monday-friday feed their kids Micky D's or that somehow you can eat the same amount of calories in healthy food and not be obese should work on the schools seeing how during the school year children eat close to 48% of their meals at school.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Most of the criticism I see of her goes along the lines of "she has a big butt and I don't like her clothes"

    If you're talking about the criticism on her "weight gain", I don't care if it's Michele or any other woman. It just pisses me off when a woman who is at a healthy weight and obviously fit is called "fat" just because she doesn't look like the anorexic Hollywood beauty standard.
