Take your muddled, crisis-oriented, for the common good bullshit and shove it. I’ve had more than enough of corrupt, power-hungry, manipulating ignoramuses running things and those weak-kneed, milquetoasts letting them.
We’re better than that.
The articles (below) about the latest group to sign on with First Do-Gooders Michele Obama’s and Jill Biden’s self-righteous and holier-than-thou project, Joining Forces, and the obesity programs to help those poor, helpless, broken Military families just get through another day, made my blood boil over. They deserve much more respect than this Statist nonsense.

WASHINGTON, July 25, 2012 – Social workers today became the latest field of professionals to sign on to help service members, veterans and their families in a broad effort as part of the White House’s “Joining Forces” campaign.
Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, made the announcement in a speech here at the annual convention of the National Association of Social Workers. Biden started Joining Forces with First Lady Michelle Obama last year to mobilize all sectors of American society to support the military community.
“We have asked a lot of our military since Sept. 11, 2001,” Biden, whose daughter is a social worker, told the audience. “They — and their families — have responded to the need for more frequent and longer deployments. As they have done in the past, our troops and their families have answered the call with no complaint.
“But they shoulder a tremendous burden,” Biden said.
Biden told of servicemen and women who are highly skilled on the battlefield, but who struggle to translate their skills to civilian education or job applications; who can communicate with Afghan tribal leaders, but not their own families; and whose lasting emotional reactions to war “are natural, human responses” that challenge relationships.
“They are not a sign of weakness, … and they should never be a source of shame or stigma,” she said. “But they are very real, and left untreated, can have drastic consequences.”

The Army operates child development programs in over fifty percent of the states and several foreign countries, literally around the globe. Ensuring children receive healthy meals and snacks has always been a challenge. Although eligible programs participate in the USDA food program, there is a wide variety of food choices that qualify for reimbursement, some of which are not as healthy as others. Encouraged by Ms. Obama’s initiative to reduce childhood obesity, a series of nutritionally balanced menus were developed by Mary Ellen Pratt, Chief of Army Child Development programs.
The idea started after visiting several installation Army child development programs and seeing first-hand the types of food children were being served – both in quantity and quality. Ms. Pratt said, “I remember saying to someone after looking at a full food cart of fish sticks, saltine crackers, fried potatoes, corn and milk and saying, “Oh good, I haven’t missed watching the meal service” and her reply, “Oh, yes, you did – those are the leftovers.” The food was not just unhealthy, much of it was undesirable from the child’s perspective. Ms. Pratt goes on to say, “I also began listening to the ideas of the “Let’s Move” campaign and realizing I had the ability to really affect a huge number of children if I just did something to fix the problem.”
This is part of a three prong approach in the Army Child Development program – the other two which have just begun implement the “I am Moving, I am Learning” Curriculum in their programs as well as purchasing portable gardens for all of their facilities.

What’s next? Controlling their sex lives? Oh, yeah. Never mind.
The Report: Strengthening Our Military Families: Meeting America’s Commitment
President Obama issued a government-wide review to bring together the resources of the Federal Government, identify new opportunities across the public and private sectors, and lay the foundation for a coordinated approach to supporting and engaging military families for years to come.

This intrusion by the know-it-all, tyrannical, bigoted, lying, cheating thugs, of the Progressive political , into American families’ lives, military or civilian, has no place in this country. First of all, when has any government program put forth by the left side of the aisle ever been successful past the first couple of years?? Welfare? The VA? OSHA?
The incessant steamrolling of people’s beliefs, thoughts, opinions, way of life, religious options and business practices is damned annoying and downright dangerous for the future of this country. Regulating businesses to death does not bring in more revenue. Keeping people dependent on the govt teat does not bring forth an independent, self-sufficient entrepreneurial spirit. Constantly labeling people broken or oppressed does not build them up.
And now you are going after the Military and their families? You have screeched for years now that you “support the troops”. So, why are you doing everything possible to break the Military? Cutting troop numbers, cutting defense spending for the boots on the ground, screwing with their voting rights and benefits isn’t what I’d call “supporting” them. Labeling them “broken”, “walking time bombs”, “potential terrorists” isn’t very helpful or supportive either. You might want to look up the definition of the word, support. It’s a positive term, not a negative one.
You all have been trying to either destroy the Military or change it into a politically correct, socially-engineered, mamby-pamby, social justice nation building political pile of crap for decades now. And you are gaining ground. But what has been brought forth can be taken out.
In fact, everything you stand for, whether it comes under the heading of Statism, Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Social Democracy is un-American and deadly to the health of any society it touches.
So, just where the hell do you get off:
~ Ignoring the United States Constitution, except when it fits your political or social engineering agenda? It’s the Law of this country. There is a lawful way to amend it - you might want to familiarize yourself with that concept.
~ picking victims and offenders, crucifying anyone who doesn’t play along? Demeans both. But then, demeaning those you can use or those who oppose you is one of your best practices, isn’t it?
~ insulting and badmouthing people who have a different perspective than yours on life’s situations? Sadly, that’s all that’s left for you when someone states facts and you have just opinions based on emotions.
~ believing that you know better than everyone else about everything and therefore should be in control of everyone’s lives. You don’t and you shouldn’t.
~ making stuff up (what those of us with ethics call lying) to take down a foe or get your way legislatively? Cheating and lying is such a terrific way to “win”. And you want to tell us how to raise our kids?
~ thinking you can just squat your butts down anywhere you please, including private property, just because you have a CAUSE? What part of “private” don’t you understand? Apparently all of it.
~ thinking the laws don’t apply to you just just because you’re so “righteous” in your idealism? The ends justify the means always for you – because you know best. No and no.
~ destroying all that makes America exceptional? Why so you continue to live here if it’s such a dreadful place? There are so many other countries that would suit your needs better: Venezuela, Cuba, France…just to name a few.
~ revising history to make America always the “Bad Guy”? That’s just silly – there are actual documents to disprove your rantings about “imperialistic, bullying, racist, oppressive Amerika”. But then, when have facts ever gotten in the way of your getting your way? So now we have a few generations of American kids who have no idea how or why this country came into being and why it is exceptional or that socialism and communism are doomed to fail – always.
~ determining who is “broken” or “oppressed” or “helpless”? How’s that war on poverty going? And just how many people have been disappeared in the night by the oppressors here?
~ ramming your beliefs down everyone’s throat – or else? All in the name of diversity, multiculturalism and tolerance, I’m sure.
~ shutting down businesses whose owners have different values than you? Now that’s real tolerant of you all.
~ creating crisis to control the masses? Really, all you can do is destroy. Too bad, because there are more of us who are determined to create – for the sake of our children’s future. You will not get in our way.
~ calling someone racist for disagreeing with a person of color? What the hell does that mean anyway ~ a “person of color”? We all are “colored” one way or another. Or have you deemed “white” not a color now?
Everything you meddle in turns to shite.
So, stay the hell out of our homes, bedrooms, churches, businesses, cars, schools, neighborhoods and Military.
And take your propagandists social workers and healthy food cabals programs with you. We can help ourselves, thank you very much.
You’re not welcome here.
And, why yes, there are some things that just should not be tolerated ~ ever.
