These people are fishing…fishing hard… and will say and claim just about anything to pass their legislation against the people that will give them more power, more authority and a stronger chokehold on the American people. And, like foolish lambs led to the slaughter, many of us cluck our tongues and follow blindly along because the “words sound so good” and surely the wise mother-government, the nanny state, knows what is better for us than we could ever know for ourselves.
Since the Obama’s have been in office- food has been the topic of the conversation so often. Michelle Obama has made it her personal soapbox and mission to personally develop the menu for every meal for every child and adult in America- snatching salt shakers and sodas while publicly cramming cheeseburgers and fries down her own gullet while out and about. The hypocrisy is damning but they don’t care!
Now, she has a new warning for all of us! And it’s that childhood obesity is now a national security threat!
First Lady Michelle Obama plans to warn in remarks Monday that the nation is seeing “a groundswell of support” for curbing childhood obesity, and she is unveiling new ammunition from current and retired military leaders.
“[M]ilitary leaders … tell us that when more than one in four young people are unqualified for military service because of their weight,” the first lady says in prepared remarks, “childhood obesity isn’t just a public health threat, it’s not just an economic threat, it’s a national security threat as well.”
While I’m delighted that either Obama finally seems to be taking our national security seriously, their lack of concern concerning our open borders, the catch and release of the Taliban now in the Middle East, the refusal to call terrorists by the name “Terrorists” leaves one feeling a little lackluster on this new and dire “national security threat” proposed by Moochelle and her food Nazis.
Chris Bounds outlined some of the other ridiculous assaults that this type of mentality has led to. So, for all of you that call yourself Common Sense Conservatives but yet have allowed the deceptive goodness of the Nanny State to overwhelm your senses – here are a few example of what happens when we cede our most basic rights to a senseless government:
Massachusetts: Boston considering limiting or banning sodas and other drinks in vending machines and snack bars to combat obesity.
California: Banned trans-fat cooking oil. San Francisco mayor banned Coke, Pepsi, and Fanta Orange from vending machines on city property by executive order. San Francisco is also considering forbidding restaurants from offering toys with children’s meals that do not meet national health standards.
Florida: City considering a ban on hiring tobacco users.
Texas: Elementary student given one week of detention for possession of a Jolly Rancher.
As for our national security… I would suggest that both Obama’s are a greater threat than a Happy Meal. Wake up, America!
