This is what Obama has done to this Country and make it worse if getting another term, but on the other hand, look at what will happen if Romney is Elected, Remember, he put in the same Health plan Obama did, and now look at what is going on in Massachusetts from Obama’s and Romney”s Health plan.
People Can not under stand why this Country is going to hell, well watch this video, and this shows just one of all these people who are turning this Country into a nanny Country. HYPOCRITES’
State’s junk food ban could take bite out of school fundraisers
Government knows best! At least, in Massachusetts it does. In an attempt to curb children’s expanding waistlines, the state government has banned junk food from school grounds during the day (and they’re pushing for an extension into evening activities, too).
At a minimum, the nosh clampdown targets so-called “competitive” foods — those sold or served during the school day in hallways, cafeterias, stores and vending machines outside the regular lunch program, including bake sales, holiday parties and treats dished out to reward academic achievement. But state officials are pushing schools to expand the ban 24/7 to include evening, weekend and community events such as banquets, door-to-door candy sales and football games.
The Departments of Public Health and Education contend clearing tables of even whole milk and white bread is necessary to combat an obesity epidemic affecting a third of the state’s 1.5 million students. But parents argue crudites won’t cut it when the bills come due on athletic equipment and band trips.
Of course, the it’s-for-the-children strain of logic is a compelling one — after all, who wants obese children?! No one; but that doesn’t mean it’s the government’s job to police what children eat. After all, the occasional bake sale or Christmas (!) party are hardly the cause of the nation’s love handles. It takes dedication to an unhealthy diet (or a thyroid problem) to tip the scales at a dangerously high level. A ban on treats in school is an overly austere, and entirely unhelpful policy.
It’s parents who must take responsibility for feeding their children properly, not the government. Ban every processed food from school grounds if you so desire, but in the end, children learn healthy habits at home. This law is an inconvenience for children who wish to raise money for their activities, and it’s a far cry from an effective weight loss program.
This has been going around for several years, but stands true today.
“I’m 😯 and I’m Tired”
I’m 😯. Except for brief period in the 50’s when I was doing my National Service, I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I’m tired. Very tired.
I’m tired of being told
that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.
I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and Madras Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..
I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.
I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?
I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.
I’m really tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20’s be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves unemployable and claiming money from the Government.
Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 8O.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my Children, granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not on the way in.
