Posted on 06/29/2010 11:08:57 AM PDT by Nachum
Michelle Obama unveiled the newly-expanded Presidents Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition to D.C. school children last week. For years the Council (formerly known merely as the Presidents Council on Fitness and Sports) busied itself with pushing Americans to get outside and run around. But as with so many government initiatives under the Obama administration, its goals have expanded. The council now wants to influence your diet and while not a member, Michelle Obama will be working closely with the group to help guide its initiatives.

‘and the soybeans now are all genetically modified, Monsanto, follow the money’
Dear lord, you’re right......
Gets curioser and curioser, don’t it? Something about a rabbit hole circling in my brain, or maybe it’s bottomless pit...
Yeah, that's excellent, especially when they are a little spicy.
Egads, now you've done it. I am going over an entire menu in my head that are required to be followed by fistfulls of Tums.
Ever have hot Chile on potato chips?
Kobe beef, lobster, pate, cavier and champain!
Ok, flame suit on.....
Although Walmart is a good habitat for viewing Americans, I found one that might be better, the Mall in Washington DC.
I made an effort to be observant and to determine
what I was looking at.
There were lots of obese people, more specifically, obese women. They were young. Often the man of the couple was also obese but many times he was not, being merely big. There were no obese men with skinny women.
There were numerous very heavy women, not old women, walking with canes. They had difficulty getting up the various Smithsonian stairs. There were quite a few such women in battery powered chairs, not old, just very large.
There will be lots of obese female deaths at a relatively early age. Diabetes, perhaps, Heart failure more likely. One Friday they will have trouble catching their breath. By Monday, they will be dead. There will be an epidemic of deaths of such women who if they make it past 45, will never see 50.
A few black women wear Wookie belts.
Most folks dressed in casual slacks, or shorts with a T shirt or golf shirt or knot top and sports shoes.
Surprising to me were the young women. Many, a surprising fraction, were wearing dresses. Not the feminist cliche costumes, but pretty, often revealing, dresses. The skirts were above the knee to short. The colorful dresses were to me a repudiation of the bra burners.
By the way, short skirts are a precursor to war.

WHOA!..Where’s the “WIDE LOAD” sign?
1. Nancy Reagan....WODs....flop
2. Hillary Clinton ...universal health care...flop
3. Laura Bush....war on illiteracy....turns out she's a Lib.
4. Michelle Obama....war on fat......well everything else they've tried has flopped.
Do you think we'll ever go back to the First Lady just hosting tea in the afternoon instead of this activist-crap?
Pointing out hypocrisy in a lib is like pouring water over a duck - it just doesn’t affect them in the least.
They have a different set of rules. They “know better”, so they are entitled to not have to abide by the restrictions they put on the benighted.
May I have a glass of soy milk with that Madam (or Madame) President?
“Ever have hot Chile on potato chips?”
No, but it must be excellent!!!
Oh gads I love potatoes processed in any form, and that is why I dont buy them. Yummy yummy yum!!! They are too full of carbs. Sad indeed.
Stalin’s big industrialization drive of 1929 had serious repercussions in the Soviet economy. When Stalin came into power, the Soviet economy depended heavily on agriculture. It was not yet industrialized and USSR was seen as a “backward” nation. Stalin believed he could change that image and bring the economy into tune with the ones of the Western world. He implemented a Five Year Plan, that to say the least, had very unrealistic expectations of the Soviet economy. Stalin’s plan, by 1933, had helped to drive the economy into famine.
Collectivization helped Stalin to achieve rapid industrialization but at the cost of one of its most vital sectors, agriculture. Instead of appeasing the peasants and giving them reasonable incentives to produce, he angered and demoralized them terrorizing them into submission. He killed the most efficient and productive peasants through his elimination of the kulak class, aggravating any chance of efficient productivity. Agriculture should not have been used as a means to an end but as an end in itself. Although industrialization was important to the Soviet Union, it should not have been created at the expense of its major food base. So even though Stalin made a great leap forward in the industrial sector, he took a thousand step backwards in agriculture.
The famine claimed up to 10 million of Ukrainian lives as peasants’ food stocks were forcibly removed by the Soviet government through NKVD (predecessor of KGB) and secret police. Stalin had full knowledge of the destructive force of the famine. It was his war on the peasantry that began with collectivization and dekulakization and as an attempt to eradicate peasant culture in its entirety. Stalin well understood that no sane person would voluntarily give up all of their hard-earned property for the withering idea of ‘bright communist future’. Therefore, the famine’s purpose was to break the spirit of Ukrainian farmers - the land owners - by depriving them of private property and means of survival.
But she won’t tell us what she eats...
I don’t think I want to know what Madame Meatbutt eats.
I noticed that when she backs up she beeps like a delivery truck.
If she gains just 10 more pounds on that butt, Obama is going to give it it’s own Zip code.
Three people in the White House have committed suicide by jumping off of it.
I try not to miss a chance to say something insulting about that human eating bottom feeder, however, I suspect her butt size is due to heredity.
