School Lunch

Ah yes here it is, the obligatory , why are kids fat report.  So why are kids fat now?  Same old song different verse.

Kids today are fat because ;

They don’t get enough exercise.

They don’t eat enough vegetables.

They don’t eat enough fruit.

They spend too much time in front of the TV, the computer, listening to music, watching movies.

Well allow me to weigh in (punny, sorry) on this most corpulent (sorry again) of subjects.

Kids may be heavier than before but truly I am not seeing it.  The percentage seems to be pretty much the same.  Of course the standards of what is now obese have changed considerably.  If you have any meat on your bones, if your ribs are not sticking out  of your chest, if your face doesn’t look like a skeleton with flesh stretched over it, you are officially obese.  Let us however try to make some sense out of the mish mash of opinion offered today.

Kids do not get enough exercise- duh, they spend more than eight hours of daylight sitting in a class room.  If they do have PE it is so structured (to prevent injury or any fun breaking out) it is simply another box to check off during the day.  “His majesty, the one” wants them to spend even more time in school.  Here’s a question that needs to be asked.  If school is such a great substitute for family why is it that children are fatter, more stressed, more violent, more disrespectful and less happy?  Maybe it’s because children were NEVER designed to spend 33% of their day away from their parents.  While I am sure some children are more than happy to spend as much time away from home as they can (since their parents would never allow them to look, act and speak as they do at school), most dislike school and it’s constant attack on the mores, morals and teaching of parents in the home.  Most children today spend less time in the home than ever before.  An hour in the morning, 4 hours at night and then it’s off to bed, so they can get up and do it again in the morning, that’s if the kids get “home” before 6 at night.  Many don’t.

Now to the crux of the article above.  Kids don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables.  After 30 years on the Mommy Track I can tell you that the child who likes fruits and veggies is the minority not the majority.  I fed my babies vegetables and kept them away from junk.  Guess what?  They liked the junk better.  They never met a sugar they didn’t like.  I had a Gestalt moment (little light bulb over the head) many years ago.  We had moved back to the states from the Far East and missed the whole “white sugar is the devil” fad and my husband attended a university on the GI Bill.  The mothers in this area alarmed by the sugar -ADD controversy had decided to remove all sugar, fat and taste from their children’s food.  It got so bad that the local college TV station had a respected Peditrician on to council parents.  Can you guess what he said?  Mothers your children need calories to grow, they need a certain amount of fat in their diets.  If your child does not have a medical condition, give them a cookie once and in while.  Sugar is NOT the devil, fat is NOT evil.  Moderation in all things should be your slogan.  Children in the area were ill less , were happier and healthier with a little meat on their bones. We see daily on Television the emaciated bodies of children around the world.  These children die from  the effects of malnourishment every day.   Surely here in the US we can do better.   These are not little adults, they do not have the same needs as adults and government officials, their lackeys in the media nor their collusionists in the health care cabal, are not the ones who get to tell parents how to raise their children Yet!

School lunches in most cases are deplorable.  They are tasteless, cold and unappetizing.  They are usually served by ladies who don’t give a hoot, because all they are paid to do is microwave or remove things from trucks.  Nothing is cooked there anymore, you could get better nutrition from a handful of vitamins.  So add even more of the same, over cooked or cold broccoli, limp salads, apple, oranges et al and what do you get.  The need for a larger trash can.  How are you going to force children to eat these things?  Starve them until they do, our new social order on display. By the time they are adults they will simply allow government to take over their lives, because it is exactly what they’re used to.

You want kids to be healthier, happier, and more stable?  Find a way to get one parent back in the home and send them to school 3 hours less.  Many children leave their homes in the dark and come home in the dark.  That may be fine for adults (it’s not of course – human beings need sunlight, hence the depression problems we have to day). Cut out the misc. days off and end school on a reasonable date.  Allow them to be children instead of forcing them to be adults.

I don’t know, we haven’t been as successful as home schoolers so far.  At this point it couldn’t hurt.

Get Ready

Ladies and gentlemen get ready, Brothers and sisters on the Right, prepare.

The games have already begun.  As the current administrations missteps, foibles and flat out idiocies  continue to mount, more and more liberals will decide that the only way to stay in power is to turncoat.  Wolves will appear in sheep’s clothing.  There will be more disguises on Capitol Hill and in state and local elections than Halloween night at Disneyland.

How then are we supposed to know who are the sheep and who are the wolves?  It is, in this day and technological age, not all that difficult. LISTEN  to what they say and then verify by doing a little research on what they have said before.  For example, the commander in indecision, may talk a good game about compassion and caring for children and how important they are but……let us not forget the he “wouldn’t want his daughters  punished by a baby”

In New York Doug Hoffman has been thrown under the bus by Newt Gingrich, and the NRCC among others.  Apparently his competition is a Margaret Sanger  Award winner .  Let me educate you on just what Ms. Sanger, the father of Planned Parenthood, proposed.

“Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying

… demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism …

[Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the

world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of

others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead

weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the

stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world,

it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying

for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing,

unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born

at all.”

— Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization , 1922. Chapter on “The

Cruelty of Charity,” pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library

edition.

and

“[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden

of unwanted children … [Women must have the right] to live … to love

… to be lazy … to be an unmarried mother … to create … to destroy

… The marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order

… The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members

is to kill it.”

— Margaret Sanger (editor). The Woman Rebel , Volume I, Number 1.

Reprinted in Woman and the New Race . New York: Brentanos Publishers,

1922.

Yes, this is Sanger, the fearless leader of the leftish fems.  She was a racist and a bigot.  She believed that only the “fit” should breed.  Who were the unfit, you might ask?  Blacks, Irish, Catholics among others.  Don’t believe me, it is all there in black and white and there is NO way to argue that this is taken out of context.  She hated them all, but she saved her most vicious attacks for those of her own kind (women) and their inability or unwillingness to throw off the chains of motherhood and embrace the secular, self aggrandizement model of the “enlightened female”.


So, the woman the National Republican Committee wants to champion is a Sanger award winner?  Really?  Are they tired of shooting themselves in the foot have now decided to take aim at their heads?  Have they decided to take the ideals and mores of conservatism and throw them not only under the bus but to grind them into the pavement?  I have only one last comment.

Barak Obama is president of the United States………….and that is exactly how that happened.

PJM takes quite a time to moderate my comments.  I must have ticked someone off, who knew?

My comment on their story about health care.

These are some of the people who support this administration and what they have said.

Robert Reich “…..”Thank you. And by the way, we’re going to have to, if you’re very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive…so we’re going to let you die.”

At a health care takeover protest…….” an unidentified man bit off another man’s pinky finger at the top joint. *The victim anti health care, assailant pro.

Rep John Conyers “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Rep. John Conyers. “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” *Question are doctors, nurses and technicians going to be so innandated with bureaucracy that they won’t have time to “read the chart” or “read medical journals”?

Sebelius HHR Sec. has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and they have conducted fundraising activity on her behalf. Sebelius vetoed abortion legislation in Kansas in 2003, 2005, 2006, and again in 2008. “In 2008, Sebelius vetoed House Substitute for Senate Bill 389, titled the Comprehensive Abortion Reform Act by its sponsors. Proponents of the bill claimed the legislation would strengthen late-term abortion laws and prevent “coerced abortions” particularly with respect to MINORS.” (my emphasis).

John Holdren Science Czar from the 1977 text book Ecoscience. “On page 837, the book states that compulsory abortion is perfectly legal under the Constitution of the United States: ‘Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.'” and “A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men.

*Now to be honest Holdren may not have been the author of the specific quotes but he is one of the authors of this text book and so one assume he not only read it (unlike members of Congress) but agrees with it.

Now for something slighly different but ………….oh so sadly similar.

Professor of Biology at the University of Texas at Austin Eric R. PiankaI wrote this in the article entitled “What nobody wants to hear, but everyone needs to know”, “I do not bear any ill will toward humanity. However, I am convinced that the world WOULD clearly be much better off without so many of us.”

And less you think that all of this is new to the Liberal thought process we have these quotes by Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger. “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

and “Birthcontrol: to create a race of thoroughbreds”

and “More children from the fit, less from the unfit.

But this is so far the best Sanger quote

“Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying … demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism … [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” – Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Chapter on “The Cruelty of Charity,” pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition.”

Why would we want ANYONE “punished with a child” or to live beyond their usefulness to society?  Death panels what death panels?

How very unObaminain.

Haters? What haters?

On Pajamas media what appears to be their token lib wrote the following (my comment is still awaiting moderation so just in case they chose not to publish I’ve posted it here).

//thuggish goons carrying guns (yes I know it’s legal, it’s also incredibly stupid), haters screaming down dissenters from their talking points at Townhalls, the kind of violence in the rhetoric of the anonymous cowards who spill their bile–behind their cowardly anonymity–in the comments section.//

Oh dear, let’s just take this as it comes shall we?
1. Thuggish goons- surely you mean members of the New Black Panthers or may haps the purple shirted members the SEIU or AFT (of course they are into the “gentle persuasion” of kindergardeners and music) among a host of others.

2. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”…….you see, those of us on the right do not go out looking for people to shoot, we seek only to protect ourselves and our communities. If that means we have to carry a gun, or stand up for those who can not do so, so be it.

3. The politics of incivility we’ve learned from our left wing foes. From the likes of Code Pink, Alec Baldwin, Al Franken, Cindy Shehan, as well as members of the Democratic party who say things like “Republicans want you to die…..quickly” or “Conservatives want children to starve” or “….THEY want to take away your Medicare and Social Security”. We have finally begun to speak up and talk back and behave in an “Uppity” manner………get used to it. Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander, you know.

4. Most of us (conservatives) don’t HATE anyone. It’s counter to our belief system and an anathema to us. We don’t like some things some people do, we dislike some peoples actions and words and we detest some people (but you really have to work at that) but we DO NOT HATE people, groups of people or countries of people. Unlike the left we can separate people from ideas. We can disagree without making it personal and we can without screeching make our points. I don’t know which Townhalls you attended but from the scenes I saw the only time people got vocal is when their elected official LIED to them. I think if someone looks you in the eye and lies to you, you have the right to call them on it right there and then. Of course our esteemed counter parts on the left have NEVER behaved in a disrespectful manner.

* From the Democratic Underground…..”Ann Coulter may be a travesty of humanity, as unacceptable a hank of flesh draped on a hanger ever to be foisted upon an ignorant populace….”
but hey, it’s not personal, just politics, as was the pie in the face she received for daring to exercise “free speech”.*

5.As a coward hiding behind anonymity I have seen what happens to people who speak their minds (see above). I have a job and a family to protect. I know that there are crazies on both sides of any issue but my fear is not those who would come after me physically but those who would seek to have me fired or who would harass my kids and spouse or worse yet sue me for my beliefs. So yes, I am afraid………I have seen the absolute lunatic behavior of those who are for gay marriage, against the war, for abortion and universal healthcare. I have seen the hate (Bush Hitler, Nazi, Brown shirts ect) that were visited upon former President Bush and now watch with ironic detachment when the same names are recycled to the new resident of the White House. Sauce for the goose……….

I guess that after years of being called every horrible name under the sun, being blamed for everything from Global Warming (welcome to the new ice age, folks) to the extinction of the Delta Smelt (a minnow like fish in CA, where water levels are so low farms and products are in danger of collapse) Americans have had enough.

Thank Goodness!
(apologies for the length, but you really tread on my last nerve)

*This guy could really use a better spell check program or an editor.  While some small mistakes are expected, one wonders if he actually read his diatribe before he published it.

Up date: (wow sounds like I actually know what I’m doing. Don’t act so surprised!)

Hot off the Michele Malkin site, email about a story run saying Malkin is being mean to an O’vomit apologizer and supporter.  At least the posters had the courage to give their names but since they are the crazies I worry about I’m not surprised.

I feel bad for your kids; to be raised in such a hate-filled household must be devastating.

I wish somebody could call CPS on your Asian ass before your children develop the same hatred running through your Filipino veins.

Michelle Malkin, she’s just a brainless %it. Instead of pissing in the toilet, she pisses in the media. She’s Rush Limbaugh’s girlfriend on the side.

It seems as if I’ve been saying this forever buy here it goes. We get the leaders we deserve. We elected them, supported them with cash and signed on to their nonsense. The next time a Graham or Pelosi displays a lack of integrity look in the mirror. When was the last time you did the same, have you sold out, lied, obfuscated, called in sick to work when you weren’t, told your mother you’d call when you didn’t. Bah you say those are just harmless fibs.

They are symptoms of a greater problem and they go on all the time. Like gateway drugs, or that first drink the little dishonesties lead to the abandonment of principles, integrity and honor. The Grahams of this world do not start at the top deception wise, they too started in their personal lives. I have no hope that any of this will turn around. People will scoff and make fun of the ramblings of a disappointed citizen. All is well in “where ever you live”. (I’d say Zion but we all no that nothing is well there).

But it isn’t, it won’t ever be as long as people continue to live as if they are the only ones on the planet that matter. That their concerns trump everyone else’s concerns. That the common good is only for suckers and honesty is only for losers. Take a look at the drek that has been foisted on us by the entertainment industry. Compare Friends with the Andy Griffith Show, Simpsons with Dick Van Dyke or any number of other comparisons. That my friends is the evidence of our slide from strong to weak, from honesty to dishonesty, from reality to faux reality.

This my friends is the world in which we live.  Others countries have sold their souls to the devil as well.  There is nothing Great about Great Britain anymore.  France is a hollow shell teeming with appeasers and the appeased.  The Scandinavian countries are a morass of conflicting social schemes and percolating terrorist malfeasance masquerading as societal inclusiveness. We don’t even want to start with Middle Eastern ( ie Muslim Islamic fundamentalist) countries and cultures.  They look you right in the eye and lie to you, because as infidels you are not worthy of the truth. You are only worthy of slavery or death.

I could go on but I’m sure there are many who feel I am being bigoted, racist and unkind.  As Joe Friday used to say on Dragnet…….”the facts ma’am just the facts. There are good people in the world.  There are however enough bad people to make it nye on impossible to accomplish much good and even that is suspect.  What is the overarching agenda, who’s making money and what do they use that money for.  Are the financing a war, a criminal empire, a corrupt government or just advancing their own wealth and power?

So the next time someone disappoints you, look in the mirror.  Then “bloom where you’re planted” and “lift where you are”.  It’s better than the alternative.

Crack(Pot)er Jack Prize

Wow………I mean wow!

I’m not sure I have words to describe my amazement, my stupefaction, wonderment, my consternation.

This my friends is “one for the books.”

President Barak Hussein Obama, a man who has never held a real job in his life, a man who single handedly has brought the worlds only super power to its collective knees, a man who’s legislative history can be described in one word; “present,” has won the Nobel Peace Prize.

For WHAT?

Ending war in the Middle East?

Curing the ailing US economy?

Passing ANY legislation besides the non-“Stimulus Package”?

Wait, wait I know, this is his recompense for not getting the Olympics for Chicago!  I knew the European leadership wouldn’t let him down.  Socialists and dastards stick together.

What has this entity done to deserve what has now become a sad, superfluous, lame joke?

Afghanistan is in shambles due to his inattention and inability to make any meaningful decisions.  The US economy is tanking daily.  Health care reform has now become an anathema.  This president has done more to divide, dissect and sever citizens from not just the government but each other than any entity since the founding of this once great nation. He and his cabal have set race relations back about 50 years.  He has sown dissension in the ranks of his own party who have come to the bitter conclusion that Conservatives were right.  The messiah they hoped for is a charlatan, a phony a mountebank.

Lets see who has won one of these prestigious awards in the past, shall we?

Dr. King (I can see this one )

Nelson Mendela (ok)

Mother Teresa ( one of the few who really fit the bill)

Jimmy Carter

Henry Kissenger and Le Duc Tho(very controversial)

Al Gore

Gorbachev (not Ronald Reagan “tear down this wall”, of course)

Kofi Annan ( one of the most corrupt leaders of the UN in history)

So occasionally they get it right…….mostly though they give this award to people who against all odds, against all logic, against all reality believe that peace will happen if only one believes enough. Calamitously reminiscent of the scene in Peter Pan where if you just believe in fairies Tink will live.

I for one have matured.  I realize that not everyone wants peace.  I realize that the only good defense has to have a better offense. I realize that some people will always seek power and authority over others, they will always crave control and do and say anything to get it.  They will lie, cheat, obfuscate, and dissemble.  They will throw their own grandmother “under the bus” if they think it will get them what they want.

One last thing.  Those of you who think the president of the United States is content with ruining this country are sadly mistaken.  His goal is global domination, make no mistake.  An ego that size will never be satisfied with less.  He has become a demi-god, the next step is logical.

God ( the real one) help us all.
