Michelle Obama to Help "Confused" Parents!

Gee, thanks, Michelle. You're the one that parents have been waiting for...because we are all incapable of rearing our children without government guidance, interference, and eventually control:

"So many parents desperately want to do the right thing, but they feel like the deck is stacked against them,” Obama said. “They know their kids’ health is their responsibility but they feel like it’s out of their control.”

“They are bombarded by contradictory information at every turn, and they don’t know who to believe,” she said.

A child's health is out of a parent's control? How, exactly? Even most families with two working parents can supervise breakfast and dinner. And as far as "contradictory information" is concerned, most of it is put out by "government science" promoting some agenda (no trans-fats, no salt) or another. Every parent knows kids need a variety of foods to stay healthy and develop properly, and that the occasional snack will not kill them. All the rest is minutia for the obsessed and the radical foodies.

Another Obama, another huge spoonful of condensation to the middle class. Too dumb to feed their kids with the government stepping in to instruct them. But hey - the government has every right to step in between you and your kids, don't you know:

“A recent study put the health care cost of obesity-related diseases at $147 billion a year,” Mrs. Obama said. “This epidemic also impacts the nation’s security, as obesity is now one of the most common disqualifiers for military service.”

Like the Obamas ever cared about taxpayer money, or the readiness of the military...

Listening to our nanny in chief, one wonders how the human species ever survived, what without a liberal government to raise our young and all...

Of course our children's health is out of our control. The government keeps telling us what we can/can't do with everything. We have no control anymore.
