    Michelle is losing her mind.

    Now she's saying that because only 1 in 4 kids in the US can qualify for the military this has become a threat to National Security.

    Now I've heard everything.

    Call it one of those unintended consequences of the Nanny State.

    Kids aren't allowed to run around and play like they did when I was growing up so now we've got kids that are getting by on Monster drinks just to keep from being bored to death.

    After sitting around the house for hours on end in the summer kids get fat. Many parents won't allow them out on their own. School buses have to drop kids off mere feet from their doorstep. It's all just a side-effect of the Nanny State this country has immersed itself in.

    I've felt for quite some time that all of this coddling that goes on is only going to make kids unable to cope with life but military life is out of the question folks. Our pampered kids won't be able to handle the culture-shock they will experience. It doesn't matter if they're out of shape or not.

    She's right.

    I was astonished that kids get excused from gym or physical activity now adays.

    That's ridiculous. Physical fitness should be as important as mental fitness. A nation of Ompa Lompas bodes terribly for our future.

    I thought the problem was that the Poor are Starving.

    She's focusing on nutrition but Jack La lane said that it doesn't matter what you eat, if you don't exercise you're gonna be out of shape.

    It does in fact bother me to say it this way but she should me more focused on her own ass.
    As far as the kids are concerned, maybe it is time to take PE more seriously, and also move the kids around during the day more, separate the class rooms and get some exercise. Incorporate more stair usage.

    Michelle should focus on educating parents on decent nutrition and the importance of exercise... but she won't... because the agenda is to attack fast food.

    What??

    I've met Jack Lalane..and he was one of the first people advocating against red meat. He's always been very much into nutrition. I watched his show from time to time. He was also a pioneer in fitness in general.
