    Childhood Obesity.. Where are We Heading?

    in Health

    Join us Tuesday evening at 5:30pm as we speak about a very important topic.Childhood obesity is much more than a cosmetic concern. The health consequences of childhood obesity include greater risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and other serious illnesses. The combination of these health effects and the dramatic increase in childhood obesity rates over the past three decades causes some experts to fear this may be the first generation of American children who will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.

    CHRISTIE PUSHES OBESITY TO KIDS

    in Politics

    There is a menace in the GOP that is threatening our children. His name is Chris Christie.


    I don’t know why anyone would support this man. I’m not going to attack him for any of the other things his opponents go after him for. Supporting Planned Parenthood, Bridgegate, costing his state billions of dollars in Exxon settlement money, endorsing Sonia Sotomayor, his assault weapons ban, etc. I’m not going to attack Christie for any of this.


    I am going to attack Chris Christie for being fat and for wanting to peddle his obesity to children all across this great nation of ours.


    Chris Christie is a fat pusher. He is like the scumbag who hangs out at school playgrounds selling crack rocks to kids at recess. That is what Chris Christie is. He is a fat pusher.


    Remember, Chris Christie is the one who had to have his stomach stapled because people told him no one would elect a big fat person for president. He had surgery to implant a band around his stomach to restrict the amount of food he was shoveling into his mouth every day. When your stomach is stapled, you are only able to eat small portions. This is for people with no willpower or discipline or enough respect for themselves to say, “That’s enough cheeseburgers for me. I’ve had enough pizza. I don’t want ALL the ham.” People who are allergic to sit-ups and are frightened by the treadmill. That’s who the stomach band is for.


    Christie also had to have the surgery because he was spending hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money on food at football stadiums. He would entertain business associates at football games and spend thousands of New Jersey tax money on hot dogs, wings, beer and pizza. Chris Christie is that guy.
