Michelle Obama Has Nice Sugary Honey Buns

Michelle Obama is on some kick to save children from obesity. While reducing childhood obesity is an honorable goal it is important to note that it is not up to the government or the First Lady or anyone else to decide what YOUR children eat.

Obama’s crusade to reduce the “bad” food kids eat has resulted in items being replaced in school vending machines (no items over 200 calories) or those machines being emptied so kids can’t buy unhealthy snacks (how many vending machine snacks have fewer than 200 calories and still have a reasonable serving size).

Funny thing though. The vending machine at the White House sells honey buns that have 590 calories, 17 grams of fat and 30 grams of sugar.

It seems to me that she could have a lot of influence in the White House and that she could have things changed so they can lead by example.

But that is not the point now is it?

She and those who work in the White House under her hubby are part of the elite. They are the ones making the rules for you serfs and they are the ones who decide how YOU have to live.

They do not follow the same rules so if they want to eat honey buns with nearly three times the number of calories allowed in any school vending machine then they are damn well entitled to that.

Do not question your overlords just do what you are told to do and you won’t be placed on some watch list.

Michelle Obama, like all progressives, wants control over you and your children.

Control is for the people not for the elitists who run them.

While I would not eat that honey bun (it has nearly half my caloric intake for the day) I do not have the right to tell anyone whether they can eat it or not. And neither does Michelle.

I have to admit though; Michelle sure has some nice looking sugary honey buns in that vending machine.

Cave canem!

No To O’Malley for President…

Martin O’Malley, the Governor of Maryland, is thinking about running for the presidency in 2016. He has lived nearly his entire adult life in a political office and he does not want to get a real job so he is looking to move on up to another taxpayer funded position.

He wants to do for the nation what he has done for the People’s Republik of Maryland. The nation does not need that.

O’Malley has fudged crime statistics by changing how they are reported, he has infringed on our Second Amendment rights by imposing gun control laws that violate the right of the people to keep and bear arms (though he has armed guards around him all the time) and he has raised a number of taxes. In fact, O’Malley has never met a tax he didn’t hike.

The guy is worthless. When he talks he is lying and he should NEVER be considered for the presidency.

O’Malley likes to talk the same smack all the progressive morons talk. You know, about working together and pushing things for the poor. O’Malley does not work with the Republican minority in Maryland. He gets his Democrat sock puppets to push things he wants through and he uses his political appointments to help push his agenda.

He flip flops on any issue depending on political value.

He is an evil man who only does harm to the people. He is a typical progressive who thinks he must be involved in regulating every aspect of the people’s lives and that we are too stupid to live without his intervention.

He is a big supporter of open borders and giving illegals the hard earned tax dollars paid in by working AMERICANS. He is so hooked on helping illegals that he calls them New Americans. He supports their law breaking. The story that he opposed the illegals coming to Maryland is untrue. He did not want them going to a conservative part of the state because he was worried about their safety (Conservatives would not have treated them badly but would have worked to send them back).

Martin O’Malley is not a leader, he is not a problem solver and he is not a patriot. He is a statist who thinks big government funded through lots of taxes is the appropriate way to run a state and by extension a country. He does not follow the Constitution of the state or the nation. He is a progressive puke who thinks he knows better how you should live your life.

He is bad for America. Disregard him, ignore him and for all that is sacred…

DO NOT VOTE FOR HIM IF HE RUNS FOR PRESIDENT!

Tebow Was the Problem In The NFL?

The NFL goes gaga over the first openly gay player so much so that it calls around to get him a slot on a practice squad and then holds a conference for the signing (have you ever seen a conference for a practice squad signing?).

Ray Rice was arrested for assaulting his then fiancee and Adrian Petersen is under indictment for abusing his child.

Over 20 players have been involved in domestic violence incidents, a number involved in fights in general and there are plenty of alcohol related incidents to go around.

Tim Tebow was not the greatest player in the NFL but he has skill and he can play. Teams did not want to take a chance on him because of the hoopla that followed him around for his open expressions of faith.

The NFL pregame shows are all full of social commentary and lack focus on football. Remember when Rush Limbaugh was removed from football broadcasting because they did not want any social commentary?

I wonder how many teams would rather have the distractions caused by Tebow than those caused by Rice or Petersen?

In other news about faith distractions; RGIII had to turn a shirt with Jesus’ name on it inside out for his press conference. I wonder if he wore a gay pride shirt would he have had to turn it inside out?

Good thing no one wanted Tebow or there might be some kind of media frenzy around the NFL that takes the focus off football.

Oh, wait…..

Obama’s War Posture Is Bush’s Fault

Barack Obama justified his use of force against ISIS by citing the Authorization for Use of Military Force resolution that was signed by George Bush in 2001. Obama is claiming that he does not need any further authorization to engage ISIS because he is authorized under the AUMF. While some say he is evading Congress (which he most certainly is) he is probably correct about his authority under the AUMF.

Seems that Democrats have no trouble with Obama using the AUMF when they routinely claimed that Bush exceeded his authoruty when he was using it.

The real issue here is that Obama has been trying to repeal the very statute he is citing as his authorization. Obama claimed the law was dated and could be used as a way to involve America in more wars.

The AUMF is now nearly 12 years old,” he said. “Unless we discipline our thinking, our definitions, our actions, we may be drawn into more wars we don’t need to fight, or continue to grant presidents unbound powers more suited for traditional armed conflicts between nation states. Washington Times

As recently as last week a National Security Council spokesperson stated that the goal was to “refine and ultimately replace” the AUMF so that Obama can “take America off a permanent war footing.”

Isn’t it convenient that Obama is using the very thing he wants to repeal to justify his actions? I think it would be fairly easy to get Congress to authorize the use of force against ISIS given that the group has beheaded two Americans.

Remember though, with Obama it is all about optics and politics. He is not upset that he played golf after discussing a beheading only that he failed to anticipate the optics of doing so.

In the case of the use of force politics is at play. If Obama uses a law signed by Bush he can avoid signing anything that would link him to the war against ISIS. The linked article points this out and goes on to indicate that Obama would prefer to work with Congress but if he went to that body and was rejected it would be “politically damaging.”

Since Obama never takes responsibility for anything (but takes credit whether he deserves it or not) it is no surprise that he would rather use something he can pin on George Bush.

While it will be easy for Obama to avoid blame and to point fingers I think it is just fine. I am thankful that Bush had the foresight to have an AUMF in place.

You see, Obama is a weak person (I can’t say leader because he could not lead a group of people out of a burning building) and without something already in place it is very unlikely he would have been able to muster the courage to get something done in order to strike ISIS.

Obama is probably happy that he does not have to spend a lot of time getting authorization because that would be a real burden.

To his golf outings…

Maybe Congress Should Mind Its Own Business

Sixteen female Senators have sent a letter to the NFL Commissioner calling for a zero tolerance policy regarding domestic violence after the Ray Rice video was released.

Many of these women defended Bill Clinton who is a known sexual predator.

Why is this Congress’ business? It would seem to me that Congress should worry about the nation and its problems and leave private business to solve its issues without the nanny state jumping in.

It also seems to me that Congress might want to adopt a zero tolerance policy regarding its own members before demanding others do so. Congress is full of people who have done various bad things from tax evasion to domestic violence (gasp). If Congress wants to set an example how about it expel any member who has been involved in a domestic violence episode? How about dumping the tax evaders and the drunkards?

Clean up your own home before you demand others clean theirs.

I do not believe that Commissioner Roger Goodell is telling the truth about the Rice incident and I think he mismanaged it terribly. How the issue is handled is up to the NFL and not Congress.

Perhaps Goodell should respond to the letter by informing the Senators that the NFL is a profitable business that generates 6 billion dollars a year in profit and that its problems are not the concern of Congress. He might want to let them know that while the NFL is profitable the US is 17 TRILLION dollars in debt (and continues to run a deficit) and their attention might be better focused on solving their issues instead of worrying about things that are not their business.

He might even offer to give them some advice on working to get rid of the debt they have accumulated.

Spousal abuse (whether a man or a woman is the abuser) is a bad thing and needs to be addressed by private organizations in the manner they see fit. It is not the business of Congress or the harpies who want some face time.

If these Senators want to make an impact perhaps they could write letters to law enforcement agencies demanding zero tolerance policies since police officers are involved in more domestic violence incidents (nearly twice the rate) than the general population.

Then again that would not be their business though they would at least be interacting with another government agency rather than a private business.

Of course, the first step would be for Congress to clean its ranks of law breakers, sexual harassers, predators and those who engage in domestic violence.

They turn a blind eye to their own and stick their noses in the business of others.

Better yet, these folks might want to turn their attention toward the Muslim Terrorists who treat women badly as a way of life.

No, these morons will embrace them.
