Nationally Secured Fatness

If you need something to show that just unequivocally demonstrates precisely the wrong attitude to have in the relationship between individuals and the state – this is it.

“We can’t just leave it up to the parents”? Seriously??

And by the way, apparently childhood obesity is now a national security threat? I think I would take it more seriously coming from defense hawks, but otherwise it’s just rich coming from people who see it as a noble goal to try to reduce the size of the armed forces of this country and would rather spend money on social programs than on defense. But alas, move along folks…nothing to see here.
