The food police

Michelle Obama's pet cause is childhood obesity, and spends a considerable amount of her time lecturing us on how we should be eating healthy, even to the point of advocating for regulating the restaurant industry. Except, look at the menu for the White House Superbowl party: bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers,
 and deep dish pizza. This is not the first time the first lady has been caught in her hypocrisy. In October, the first lady veggie gardener downed a cheeseburger and French fries in a Milwaukee diner. I recently blogged about how people always SAY that they want healthy foods, but when it comes down to it, people actually buy food that isn't so healthy. The reason for this is obvious: rice cakes covered in bee spit might be good for you, but it tastes like crap.

As with almost everything the liberals do, dietary advice is for us, not them. Just as they are exempt from restrictions on firearms, paying taxes, actually conserving energy, while feeling free to lecture us on the rest.

The national media, and do not demand anything of what they hear, the debate has been fueled by the addition of just enough of the hype and false concern to keep people watching TV or reading a newspaper. They use the term "obesity epidemic" implies that obesity is contagious. But in many cases, obesity is the result of low self-control, and obese individual has only himself to blame.

Obese individuals do have themselves to blame, but that doesn't give anyone else the authority to tell them what they can and cannot eat, or to punish them for being obese.
