    Just after 24 minutes in: "to insure that all families have access to fresh affordable food in their communities" - Michelle Obama in her Speech to the NAACP.

    Question... How is this going to be done?

    Force of Law?...

    More Taxpayers Money?...

    "Eliminate Food Deserts within 7 years"?... Using HUNDREDS of Millions... As of this Speech at least.

    Really?...

    So I can Expect that by 2017 that all of the Ghettos are going to have Fresh Food Markets and Healthy Kids riding bikes to Safe Schools?...

    Why is the First Lady trying to Spend my Money in a Discriminatory way?

    :)

    peace...

    She says at about 30 Minutes in that the Health Care Legislation (ObamaCare) will Require that Businesses allow for Mothers who return to Work to Breast Feed...

    So are Babies coming to a Workplace near you?...

    What in the HELL is in this Legislation?

    :)

    peace...

    Kudos to Mal, in pointing out the anti free market essence of the Obamunists, and their 'useful idiots.'

    Known in earlier times as corporatism, it is the use of business by government...

    1. FDR turned the economy into a “cooperative” enterprise where labor, business, and government sat around a table and made the decisions that effected everyone.

    2. The intellectual descendants of those who worshipped Bismarck’s Prussia or Mussolini’s Ministry of Corporations…the lodestar of enlightened economic policy….in a quest for the holy grail of government-business ‘collaboration.’

    3. Robert Reich, proponent of the from of corporatism known as the Third Way movement, wrote “The Next American Frontier,” in 1983, and championed, in exchange for ‘restructuring assistance’ from the government, businesses would agree to ‘maintain their old work forces intact.’

    a. Workers would become de factor citizens of their companies, in a relationship similar to Krupp’s General Regulations. “The Krupps feared the Social Democrats and to keep them out of their facilities, they used repression and a compensation package that many German workers found quite acceptable. If you worked for Krupp, your children were born in a Krupp hospital, educated in a Krupp school, played on a Krupp playground, etc. You shopped in a Krupp store. It was cradle-to-grave security of sorts. Women advertising for husbands would specify employees of Krupp.” Chapter Four: notes

    b. In an even more eerie echo of Italian Fascist corporatist thought, corporations would replace “geographic jurisdictions as conduits of government support for economic and human development.” Social services- health care, day care, education, and so forth- would all be provided by your employer.

    4. In the December 7, 1992 ‘The New Republic,’ “The Policy Hustler,”pp.16-23, Mickey Kaus gives the following examples from Robert Reich’s writings. “But must we choose between zero- sum nationalism and impassive cosmopolitanism?...[No, there is] a third, superior position: a positive economic nationalism.” “American political rhetoric often frames the decision in the dramatic terms of myth: either we leave the free market, or the government controls it.” Reich proposes his ‘Third Way,’ as “a middle, messier ground…[in which there are] many options” for pragmatic, expert-driven control of the economy, using capitalism and socialism together.

    Note: while the above may not be exact quotes from the book, the thoughts and information are largely from Goldberg's "Liberal Fascism."
    I highly recommend same.

    Why am I hearing about a Half a Billion in Spending Focused on the DemocRATS Dependents from Michelle @ the NAACP and NOT hearing it from the "Free Press"?...

    The idea that everyone should be provided anything at the expense of another man reminds me of a quote from the 19th century economist Frederic Bastiat who said "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." That is essentially what those in government who want to provide services from cradle to grave for everyone believe. They really do think that is what they are supposed to do under the Constitution, whether they like it or not, is the law of the land.

    I would hope so, breast feeding is one of the most important things a mother can do for their child and it should be criminal for them not to

    Everytime I go to the grocery I encounter the food stamp crowd... baskets full of soda, chips and other crap. Sounds more like an education issue. The same grocery store has fruits and vegetables.

    what the hell grocery store do you go to? and I would be glad to regulate what types of food could be bought with food stamps, just like I want welfare recipients drug tested. government money shouldnt be a free handout anymore, there needs to be some regulations on what is done with our stolen money

    So if a mother chooses to use formula instead of breastfeeding, it should be a criminal act?? Is this what you are saying?

    If not... I do not recall any law that criminalizes the act of breastfeeding.. if you think there is, please cite the law
