FLOTUS: Obesity Is "Absolutely" The Greatest Threat To Our National Security Or Something

Apart from your husband, I trust.

If the greatest threat to our national security was bears chasing us in the woods, I might agree.

But it's not.

18 There was a guy in my math class in high school who wrote a problem on the board.

He had a car heading in one direction at 65 MPH, then a really fat kid standing there. The arrow from the car went toward the kid....then another arrow from the kid with 200 ft. after it.


It made no sense, but I remember laughing my ass of at it for much of class.

There was this one time I was hung over after a case of Special Export where I simultaneously had a bloody nose, the squirts, and violent episodes of projectile vomiting. I think I'd rather be chased by a bear.

this is the natural fall out of ObamaCare.

Once that was passed the path to--the formulation-

When you have the communitarianism of ObamaCare they have a new justification to attack the right of an individual.

Essentially you lose the right to be fat, and to smoke--the list goes on I am sure.

Not so much from him - what the fuck do you expect from a community organizer - but from the crowd which was cheering like they were at a football game, while fucktard was talking about the 'bad day' and the fact that there were dead Americans in Libya. These fucking people are not my countrymen.

I knew someone who was training for the Olympics for dressage (aka horse dancing). Her family had no money so she basically was an indentured servant for a world class trainer to pay for it. Her body fat percentage was down in the low single digits. She was nothing but pure muscle. According to the BMI charts, she was obese because she's short and her weight, again, all of which was muscle, put her in the obese category for her height. BMI is bullshit.

88 I think the only reasons we haven't seen a horrific terrorist attack on the US in the last few years is leftover fear from the Bush administration, who definitely put the fear of God in terrorists; sharp eyed local law enforcement and people; and carryover policy from the previous administration, a sort of inertia despite the present administration's attitude.

That may explain the convention "bounce" which has dissipated. That may also explain the hysteria on the left and in the press as they try to win this now.

Either R has no money (doubtful), or R is waiting to blow O out of the water when O has spent out all of his money. I vote the latter. It's what they did to Newt and Santorum in the primaries.

i think bmi works best for those with a "typical" physique; i.e., not an athletic or terribly obese one. there are assumptions built in to the figure about the ratio of lean-to-fat body mass that simply don't apply to those athletic folks who have a pretty high lean-to-fat ratio, nor to the morbidly obese, who have very little lean body mass in proportion to fat!!!

104 Either R has no money (doubtful), or R is waiting to blow O out of the
water when O has spent out all of his money. I vote the latter. It's
what they did to Newt and Santorum in the primaries.


Romney couldn't really spend until the Dem convention was over.

He wasn't allowed to tap his general election fund until he accepted his nomination and there was no point running ads no one would watch during Barry's half-assed convention.

Fat kids are always hungry. That's why they're fat. If you are a good little citizen of the Empire and you follow the USDA guidelines, you too can become fat and still be hungry all the time. Then you can beg your government doctor for the meds you need.

108 I'm not really sure what Romney is waiting for, I know he has a freaking bank full of money to spend but I'm not seeing much evidence he's using it yet. I've seen a lot more Romney bumper stickers in town than Obama (and most of those are old and fading, from 200, but few people even have a political bumper sticker.

I'm sticking with my initial analysis: most of America is just biding their time until November when they will with steely resolve and gritted teeth march through hell its self to get to that ballot booth and vote Obama out of office. They aren't being loud and boisterous about it, they're just waiting for their chance to have their voice heard and get it over with.

119 The simple truth is that we have better access to food than any other time in history. As a result we're bigger than our grandparents or great-grandparents; not just weight but also height wise.
Part of the problem, I think, is not "more fat" but "less muscle". People don't get as much exercise as in the past, which means that you don't have the muscle underneath to give a decent frame to any fat that you accumulate.

174 @119

good point!!!!

the importance of an active metabolism cannot be understated!

as a quick example, i'm 5'6" and like ~125-130#, but i east 3500 kcal a day and can hardly keep muscle tone without it being cannabalised away! i have to work out 3x a week just to maintain my muscular status quo (i.e., stay sessy :3).

my metabolism is high, anyway, but it's even higher because of two major things: 1) my eating habits, which are made up of a practically constant stream of small meals and snacks instead of three large meals a day, which keeps my digestive system working and signals my tissues to use up that energy and o2 (i have the WORST "nervous" fidgets you have ever seen, but that's just because i'm constantly shedding energy); and 2) my lean-to-fat ratio, which is really high!

like you alluded to, the folks with higher muscle-to-fat ratios have a tissue profile that simply demands more energy, so athletic bodies are actually burning more energy throughout the day than non-athletic bodies...EVEN WHEN STATIONARY!

it's a complex system...at least more complex than a straightforward application of the conservation of energy might suggest...but there are some definite rules of thumb one can follow to stay metabolically healthy, and one of the major ones is, like you say, having more muscle underneath the fat to be constantly stimulating metabolic activity.

No way could Mooch touch Marie's quality.

And btw, that "Let them eat cake" infamous quote contextually referenced her willingness to give the mob what she had at hand, as the bakery supposedly had no bread.

True enough, had Marie Antoinette permitted France to become a Constitutional Monarchy like Britain, well...who is to say. The French never did approve of foreigners.

221 104 So the outlines of the R strategy and the O strategy are emerging.

O tried for the "knockout" corresponding to the post-convention bounce by spending $20 million to R's $4 million from 8/26-9/4. The hope was that O could build momentum with favorable polls and favorable press (which is in the tank for O) to win the argument on "inevitability." Remember O saying "it's the 4th quarter, it's close, time to be like MJ and put it away?"

So O tried: $222 million to $87 million so far. $20 million to $4 million in the past two weeks. Guess what? The fundamentals re so bad for O that all they could get is maybe a 1-2% swing in the battleground states, many of which O leads by poll averages (of D skewed polls in some cases) of 0.5 to 1%.

So Laura Ingraham (who I love) and the rest of you guys--chill out. Outspending by 3-1 so far, and this is the best he can do?

No wonder O has to campaign for $$$ in Vegas. He's operation is running low for this stage of the campaign, and he needs to reserve some for turnout.

Say what you want about R--his campaign is disciplined as hell. Just like his administration will be. No panic, stick to the strategy. It appears that R's strategy is that the fundamentals are so bad for O (and now getting worse with the Middle East and Al Qaeda, the gift that keeps on giving to the Repubs so much that I think they must be on the payroll--remember 2004?) that he will have to overspend to keep even until October and the debates.

It looks like the R plan appears to be to be to keep even until the debates. At the debates (in which nobody can be assumed to win, but with O's poor performance in unscripted situations one never knows) the sight of a presidential looking Romney with a deer in the headlights too young looking O will be a powerful sight.

That's when the $250-300 million ad buy (just from R) followed by the $250 million ad buy will take place. $400-500 million in ads, many of then negative, in October surrounding and framing the debates. O won't know what hit him.

Look, the fundamentals of this election favor Romney, and he can afford a patient strategy. His campaign is disciplined as hell. One can disagree about the strategy that appears to be working here, but these guys have learned from Kerry's 2004 campaign (where the money was spent too early), Romney's 2004 Senate campaign (same thing), and the 2008 primaries (same thing).

Just give it a chance and sit back. I know we all want red meat and O to be crushed immediately. Just wait and be patient, we are going to get what we wish very soon.

225 The 4 food groups seemed to work pretty well. I mean, there wasn't an "epidemic" of obesity in America until they went to that retarded pyramid that put all the good food at the top.

In all seriousness, they redefined "obesity" around 1990 and suddenly there was this huge rise in the amount of fat people. According to the BMI I'm overweight at 6'3, 200#. That's just a pile of crap. And they define obesity so low its misleading. You get the impression that someone is like Michael Moore when you hear the word "obese," not Kate Winslet.

Eastern European women, same deal. Its like College Butt Disease, but times ten and a few years later. They look phenomenal then something changes.

A lot of them are still pretty but they aren't the slimline you see them as models. There's a reason they starve themselves and take amphetamines to keep their jobs.

Speaking of which, look at the women in Hollywood, almost all of them have a horrible pinched, super thin, anorexic look. Its a big trend now, to be really skinny. I don't think that's all diet, either I wonder if they aren't on some hormone treatment or something that makes them shed fat and tissue automatically.

not to be concern trolly but you think it's wise to hold off on negative ads for that long? and i'm also worried that they don't have truly biting negative ads planned at this point -- when Romney's pollster was telling everyone to chill about the O bounce, he said "the economy will result in the downfall of Obama," which makes them sound overconfident that he's just gonna self-defeat in this economy and they can be "nice" about it. i hope they prove me wrong though.

234 Relax. The race is fairly even at this point despite a 3-1 overspending advantage. The negative ads will come out, with some "special red meat" firing all of us (the micro targeted O haters) up in mid-late October after the last debate. It's going to be fun.

It's also going to be dangerous. The only way the strategy is concerning is if O does an October surprise that works. Big emphasis on "that works."
