    First Lady to Launch ‘Very Ambitious’ Campaign to End Childhood Obesity in One Generation

    By LEE FERRAN

    Feb. 9, 2010—Michelle Obama is formally announcing today what she called a "very ambitious" program to end the American plague of childhood obesity in a single generation.

    "We want to eliminate this problem of childhood obesity in a generation. We want to get that done," the first lady told "Good Morning America’s" Robin Roberts in an exclusive morning television interview. "We want our kids to face a different and more optimistic future in terms of their lifespan."

    So she wants to create an army of anorexic and bullemic teens who are pissed at their parents?

    Anyway, good luck to her. But i dont think she should get a penny of taxpayer money.

    From the Seiu website.

    A well-conceived, robustly-funded reauthorization bill would:

    Reduce hunger and food insecurity in America. A recent USDA Report showed that one in every four children live in households struggling against hunger;
    Help reduce childhood overweight and obesity;
    Improve child nutrition and health, and enhance child development and school readiness;
    Provide fair wages and health care for food service workers. Food service workers are often paid poverty wages with few benefits and no paid sick days.

    I think she should shave a few pounds off of that ghetto-bootie of hers first before she starts wagging her finger at our kids.

    On CBS tonight, they talked about how all these farms who use antibiotics to fatten up their pigs, chickens, and cows have large number of MRSA cases. At one chicken processing plant some workers have had 12 outbreaks of MRSA, one lady had three in a month.
