By all means, let's fatten kids up so they turn into a drain on our healthcare system and can't do anything more physical that sit in front of the TV. Personal responsibility sure isn't winning, since this country just keeps getting fatter! Quit complaining.

"Personal responsibility sure isn't winning" And that is the problem.

"Kids are having sex, a lot of it." So we provide free condoms and morning after pills and abortion, rather than say, address the problem.

There is no reason for the government to be in moral hazard vis a vis the "healthcare system" except that it put itself in the line of fire such that it could pretend to be shocked when people made health choices that might cost it extra money.

All done for the express purpose of controlling every aspect of our lives.

No one in their right mind believes a central government ought to tell people what to eat and how much to eat. This is the thinking of deranged individuals.

The healthcare system is already a drain, due to government. And it is going to get worse under Obarrycare.

Even if that is true, and I don't happen to believe it is, why do you want to let kids keep going down this path?

It will continue even if government intervenes, only it will be more expensive. The problem is there is no parental responsibility because government has taken that away, too (Look at the percentage of single black mothers). Obama even stated something about welfare recipients being a majority coalition. It doesn't look like Obama cares too much about helping out families. It's about control.
In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
