Absolute nonsense!! The schools in this state have physical education and the problem continues in epic proportions! Maybe if we could dump some of the union gym teachers and get some real health & fitness educators into our schools, we could get back on track in our public schools!!

Sure, all the kids do today is either watch MTV, play video games, send text messages, talk on their cell phones, and sit in front of their damn computers watching porn! Of course those morons are going to gain weight!!

At least today's kids are having lots of sex! That should help burn off some calories.

Well I care and so should you. Earlier this year our Armed Services gave tons of money to head start programs in several major cities. The rationale? Of all of the eligible inner-city potential military recruits in their target age range, 90%(in Philadelphia, I recall) were NOT signable due to obesity, drugs, and felony convictions.

Now would you think in this 90%'cheribum' that they are all going to be educated, employed, productive citizens? Or would you surmise that they will be housed in public housing, prisons and/or be eligible for disability, medical assistance, and welfare?
Are you thinking a little differently yet?(-:

Amen. And I personally am glad of that!'chubby' is a quip. Obesity is a medical term with implications medically, cost in providing healthcare, and disability all at taxpayer expense. I am don't look for anyone to pay anything for me or you to be chubby. I do have a problem with Medicare funding that 'electric scooter' for the morbidly obese! That is government business with thin & chubby alike paying for something that may be avoided.

I just did take a three day vacation. Gained three more pounds! After Ms. Obama is done with kids, maybe she can help me? I'll take a stimulous financial package, spend it, and we can back in a year or two to see if I am back to my ideal weight? Whadda think?(-:
