Violent extremists? Feh! Cheeseburgers are EVIL!

Years ago, when I lived in upstate New York, I decided to quit smoking. Around the same time, I developed a craving for Buffalo wings. There was a great wing joint less than a mile away that delivered.

I got fat. 25 wings, four or five times a week will do that to you.

Sure, there were dietary charts and calorie counters, but did I read them? No. If only I’d been forced, against my own personal tastes and free will, to eat healthy I wouldn’t have been in that predicament.

Thankfully, a young person today will never have to deal with the obesity problem in the future.

Michelle Obama gave an impassioned speech to the National Restaurant Association on Monday about food, childhood obesity, and the need for the restaurant industry to do something about it.

Here’s a snippet.

That’s why we’re committed to helping increase that demand and making it easier for you to do what’s right.  And we’ve started by requiring chain restaurants to provide calorie counts on their menus and menu boards.  And I am grateful for the support we’ve received from the NRA to get this done.  And I want to encourage restaurants that aren’t providing calorie counts to join us in this effort.

And, finally, we’re working with mayors and other local officials to make our cities and towns healthier and to highlight restaurants that agree to serve smaller portions and promote more nutritious options.

“Requiring chain restaurants…”

“Working with mayors and other local officials to make our cities and towns healthier.”

Want to bet she hasn’t even called Mayor McCheese?

In a related story, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has come out with a public service announcement linking cheeseburgers to horrible, horrible death.

How far will the current administration and the far Left nanny state agenda go? Sure, Michelle is working with local governments now, but what about a year from now when children are still fat?
