    Nanny State Alert: Gov. Palin Urged “Healthy Habits In Eating” For Alaskans | Media Matters for America


    Palin's 2009 comments


    "It starts by ending destructive habits, and beginning healthy habits in eating and exercise. In my case, it’s hard to slack when you have the ever-present example of an Iron Dogger nearby. But many of us could use a little more time in our great outdoors – and when you live in the Great Land, there’s no excuse.

    Protecting good health is largely a matter of personal responsibility, but government policy can help. Our new Alaska Health Care Commission will recommend changes that affect the well-being of Alaskans far into the future."

    It official, Palin was Nanny Grizzly, :lol:

    Recommending isn't legislating.

    I recommended that my wife quit smoking like I did.

    I didn't demand that I knew better than her and force her to quit.

    See the difference?

    I think your post will fall on deaf ears and bounce off of closed minds.

    Michelle Obama "recommended" and everyone went ape shit but now you can see the difference between "recommending" and "demanding" only when it's Pailin. Nope no bias here lol

    :link: to where I said anything about Michelle Obama.


    A Nanny State is where you are forced "for your own good".

    Banning trans-fats and outlawing smoking in bars and restaurants...that's the Nanny State.

    Look at the thread where San Francisco want to outlaw circumcision...that the Nanny State.
