Remember those weight games at the state fair? There was a huge scale that everyone could see. (We can all guess why we don’t have that game anymore.) Anyway, when I was a young stick figure, I would be-bop up onto that scale and laugh when I won.
I always weighed 15 pounds more than I looked like I weighed. I am big-boned, ok? But, I would win a prize for weighing a lot!
Michelle Obama’s latest ploy to takeover the parenting of America’s children will have much more dire consequences.
Obama now wants to WEIGH AND MEASURE pre-schoolers. You heard that right. Since Americans are now too stupid to parent our pre-school children, the government has to get involved.
How is this going to work? Both of my children, although not fat, weigh more than they appear to weigh, just like mom. They are both very active and have participated in sports for most of their lives. They aren’t scrawny kids. Who is going to decide how heavy is too heavy? When I think of a line of innocent children all being weighed by a government employee, I shudder.
This is a stunning example of liberal cruelty. What is going to happen to the chubby kid? Will he or she be shamed if he or she weighs too much? Will his or her lunch ration be cut if the weight is inappropriate?
A new president can’t be elected soon enough. I am really looking forward to the return of personal responsibility and freedom.
