    I found this pretty ironic. The Obama Administration has made raising awareness of childhood obesity one of their primary goals and here you have the State of New York (shocking, I know) actively attempting to keep kids from being active. :eusa_doh:

    Wow, they were considering passing such crud? We used to play dodgeball with basketballs while being lined up against a brick wall. It was always best to come away bloodied.

    Yeah ... they're all part of the Perfect World Syndrome. I suggest they be put in padded cells so they can bang their heads long enough to determine if it gives them a headache ... my bad ... that would be cruel and unusual punishment for people taking all the fun out of childhood.

    Parents have turned their kids into a bunch of pussies these days. God forbid their child might get a cut or scrape. Don't let them play outside because stranger danger may get them. I'll never understand how we survived as kids. But it is our generation who grew up without overbearing parents and rules who now have become the overbearing and overprotective parents.

    I personally can't stand him. I think he is an incessant whiner. I prefer Neal Boortz.
