A week or so ago, we heard Janet Napolitano tell us that "climate change" is a national security threat. Well, since that fad has died its quick death, we have a new security threat! Are you biting your fingernails yet? Well, here it is, from Mrs Messiah herself! Click here if you can't see embedded video.
She, of course, is talking of the so-called "Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act". She claims that obesity is a "national security threat" because supposedly recruits are coming in overweight. Michelle, what else is new? One of the purposes of basic training is to get the recruits in shape. That's how it's always been - that is, until training standards were dumbed down so that women, etc could "pass".
She also claims this bill will "save lives". My, my! She shares her husband's messianic delusions of grandeur. As he looks on, he must be jealous of her since she is obviously not dependent on a teleprompter - but I digress! Now note, on the video, at the 1:40 marker, where she states "we can't just leave it up to the parents". Oh, yes we can. And we accomplish that by getting rid of the structures and bureaucracies that subvert and undermine parental authority and perogative in their children's lives. Do we hear the nanny-socialist state rattling its saber here? Watch out for the "fat police" coming our way!
To further reimforce the nanny state (to propagandize children and those of childish minds), watch this condescending tripe which was produced with your tax dollars! Click here if you can't see embedded video.
You did notice, of course, that there's none of that nasty red meat, right? Well, maybe after that school subverts Elmo's parents and feeds him a politically-correct diet, they can teach him proper language skills so that the poor little thing no longer speaks of himself in the third person.
Before any snide progressives snipe at me for belittling the Obamas' "concern for children", remember that they are both rabidly pro-abortion. Recall all that talk of "future promise" in the first video? Well, what we see now is only 66% of the "promise" that God sent, as 1/3 of unborn children are murdered in their mothers' wombs - murders that the Obamas have worked hard to facilitate!
