MICHELLE AND THE FAT KIDS
Out of all the problems in America that a first lady can choose to promote, Michelle Obama chooses child obesity. I find this nauseating and it makes me want to binge and purge a bunch of cookie dough. Seriously Michelle? This is your big cause? Your big "TO DO" list? This is all you could think of? American kiddies are a bunch of big fat Pillsbury dough blobs and it's time to bring "awareness" to their Michelin tire man eating ways? So this little piggy went to market and then ate it kiddies, and this is a no, no. Eat your organic magic vegetables lard ass!! No more pie eating contests, Twinkies, Ding-Dong's and Ho-Ho's! Junior jumbotron, get off your wide load and waddle on down to the farmers market for some freaking broccoli already. Mix in a salad you human boat anchor! It's not tricks or meatloaf you Goodyear BLIMP!! Mom, does this jacket make me look fat? NO, but your face does. No farting fat brat, you might launch yourself into orbit.
Let's compare Michelle with our previous First Lady, Laura Bush. Laura Bush is a much classier act, first and foremost. Her trademarks consisted of education and literacy and advanced this cause both nationally and globally. She focused on early childhood development and promoted reading and honoring our patriotic heritage throughout schools in our country. According to Wikipedia "She also advanced women's causes through The Heart Truth and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. She represented the United States during her foreign trips, which tended to focus on HIV/AIDS and malaria awareness."
After 9/11, she spoke directly to our nations children. She said "We need to reassure our children that they are safe in their homes and schools. We need to reassure them that many people love them and care for them, and that while there are some bad people in the world, there are many more good people." She took immediate action in schools across America to ensure that the emotional effects of 9/11 were addressed by school officials.
She also championed "boys" and society's need to nurture the neglected male who had nose dived into high rates of crime, High School drop-outs, gang activity, victims of sexual crimes, absent fathers, murder and an all around failure to rescue the troubled American male.
I googled the top problems for the American child and while obesity is the number one health issue, I think it would suffice us all to say that children in America face far greater issues than those associated with their health. I don't diminish the need for our youth to be healthy and to choose activities that get them moving, but to me this is just another message that promotes "body issues" especially in young girls. Young girls face far more scrutiny in our society when it comes to weight than boys do. While Michelle may be promoting health, most girls interpret being thin with beauty. Young girls are bombarded with unrealistic and fake messages of what beauty is and I would hope that Michelle would not forget that anorexia and bulimia are created by many of the adults in a young girls life. Hyper focusing on weight is as unhealthy as eating a big mac for lunch everyday.
This cause is so retarded. America's youth have bigger fish to fry than their big fat asses. But such is the progressive. Worthless. OOPS! Did I say FAT kids? I meant weight challenged younglings. My bad.
