Free Speech – The REAL obesity issue

The REAL obesity issue

Contrary to what people may have heard from that idiot Sarah Palin, First Lady Michelle Obama is not going around grinchily trying to snatch sugar cookies from the hands of children this holiday season (Whoops! That’s “Christmas Season” for all the Fox News purists out there).  Rather, what Michelle Obama’s anti-childhood obesity initiative is trying to do, as far as I can tell, is bring about a much needed increase in awareness among children and their parents in this country of a much evident, but much ignored, fact here in America: a lifetime spent scarfing down sugar cookies and sitting on your dead ass almost invariably leads to diabetes and/or heart disease. Both very expensive diseases to treat and two diseases that are quickly breaking the health care bank. One of my fondest hopes for 2011 is that the Republicans/Tea Partiers will stop gloating over the 2010 election, grow up, and start offering something more constructive than reflexive bashing of everything that comes from the White House. Unfortunately, reflexive bashing seems to be a winning formula for the Republicans.
