If it pisses off libruls...

Briefly broke my embargo this morning to see how her fellow cons were criticizing Palin's bashing of anti-obesity programs being promoted by the White House. That part wasn't that interesting but this is worth quoting:
Critics of the White House’s anti-obesity efforts say they could open the way to more regulations down the line, especially since Democrats’ healthcare reform law and its subsidies create added incentives for the federal government to cut medical costs by keeping Americans healthier.
Good Lord, we wouldn't want Americans to be healthier, especially if it's perceived as a win for the MarxistSocialistNaziFascistKenyanMuslimLiberal White House. And even worse, it might save money:
The epidemic also adds quantifiable costs to the nation’s healthcare system, perhaps as much as $147 billion in 2008, according to a recent study in the policy journal Health Affairs.
Tea Party patriots don't need no dang gummit telling them to cut down on the Krispy Kremes. But it's nothing personal, mind you.

So under the guise of looking out for our health, 0bama wants to control what we eat. Seems he took that one straight out of the tyrants strategy book since controlling the food supply controls the masses.

I guess the word Tyrant means a lot less than it used to when we applied it to Nero or Hitler or Mussolini or Stalin or Mao Zedong and others. But hey, if Americans didn't have hyperbole, they'd be unable to speak at all.

Actually I'm also rather wary of programs designed to make us eat better, but "controlling the food supply" isn't even hyperbole any more. It's bullshit and it serves no other purpose that to elevate ignorant idiots and would be tyrants like Glenn Beck to a respectability they don't deserve.

Maybe you could just say you oppose the idea and give some real reasons as to why you do? This isn't a vomitorium after all.

I'd like to discuss the fact that some people thrive on diets that the pseudo-scientists call poison and others get fat from 800 calories a day. There is increasing evidence from genetics and animal husbandry that may be very contradictory to the idea that the alleged obesity epidemic stems most mostly from over-eating.

The most recent Newsweek has a most provocative article about it.

Sorry. I was under the impression that it was a vomitorium. Afterall, those who disagree with you and Spencer are called idiots, stupid, dumb asses, dumb f$#@s, uneducated or something.

I like the uneducated part of the commentary you made regarding the schools in Detroit. Yes they are broke. Yes they fail to educate. And yes, they create Democrats. The city votes 90% plus for Democrats. Been doing so for the last 40 years and look at what a shining example it provides of what liberal leadership can accomplish.

Oh, you again -- raising the tone, are you? You came in here flinging insults and you've never stopped so pardon my attempt to have a discussion and I know, everyone not from Detroit with his veins full of puss is a libtard.

Go fuck yourself and if you reply to this I'll delete your ass.

Actually, that one pro'ly needs some forum for spewing, just hasn't found the one that will tolerate the nonsense. Over at FDL, we also have evidence that there's a bunch of holiday free time on the computers for the patients.

Spew is what it was and it's funny, but the guy can't even take a partial agreement in stride because his flimsy on-line persona is only supported by grandiose hyperbole and the quick changing of subjects. Anything less than howling, bombastic opposition calls his wisdom, deep experience and no doubt stupendous accomplishment into question.

Most of this noisome flatulence is given us in lieu of any credentials which I had the elitist nerve to ask for. Silly Libtard me. I wouldn't have asked if he had said anything an intelligent person might have said rather than something extracted from Beck and wrapped in O'Reilly like a big bullshit burrito.

But better just to insult, insult, insult and rage like some cheap pupeteer's Lear -- lest anyone point out the arrogance, of the Nation's chief economist who nevertheless spends his winters in Detroit. Voluntarily and from altruistic impulse, I'm sure.

As usual, you end your comment with foul language. Typical of the better educated liberal. I can only assume that my observation regarding the failed Detroit Public School System being a Democrat factory struck a nerve.

You started the foul language and have only recently given up your hysterical raving about manhood, guns and my gonads, so wipe the foam off your lips, if that's what it is.

Who do you think you're fooling. Who do you think you're talking to and who do you think cares about your opinions? You've never given any hint why anyone should - and again, the Ivy League turns out Democrats as do the Chicago public schools.

Are you so dense you really think you've made a point or so arrogant you think you've pinned down the problems of Detroit with one stupid, simplistic observation? Don't flatter yourself - you've never stuck anything but out.

Pretty sure this anon is one of my "fans" from Detroit, probably a regular commenter. Had to say which one since I have so many. Can't fail to notice such is the courage of his convictions, he bravely avoids disclosing even his nym.

You sir, are a liar!!! Show me the link where I stated it? I'm sure you'll delete a couple of your posts to make it so. Then again, that foul mouth is part of the swashbuckling image.

You don't seem to understand - I have copies of your posts going back months and months. I get them as e-mail whether or not you delete them or anyone else deletes them.

You arrived with insults and you'll go away with insults. No one is under any obligation to put up with you and your childish vandalism much less to publish it. Stop thinking you're important or that you are confounding anyone or have an audience other than yourself.

"Just like you being an uneducated idiot was your own conscientious decision. I got a hoot out of your explanation. What a loser!!! Now get back to clean-up on aisle 3."

"Maybe you should spend time dealing with those sick fantasies you have about shooting or skewering those who disagree with you. A sick little man like you should not be allowed to own firearms."

Ring a bell, Quasimodo? It's an easy thing to lock you out of here and I'm getting tired of you.
