Sure, It's In the Constitution; Ron Kind Says So!

It's no wonder that Ron Kind is wavering about running again.

For good reason.

He might look real funny wearing tar and feathers while campaigning.

A bill introduced this month in Congress would put the federal and state governments in the business of tracking how fat, or skinny, American children are.

The bill would require states that receive federal dollars for health programs to track the Body Mass Index of children ages 2 through 18 annually through records collected by their health care providers. The legislation also requires the states to pass that data on to the Department of Health and Human Services for analysis.

The Healthy Choices Act–introduced by Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee–establishes and funds a wide range of programs and regulations aimed at reducing obesity rates by such means as putting nutritional labels on the front of food products, subsidizing businesses that provide fresh fruits and vegetables, and collecting BMI measurements of patients and counseling those that are overweight or obese

My response to Ronniekins: Sit on it and rotate.

Changing a few of the fat-headed/manicured-fingernail/brie-eaters in Congress will not be enough.

It's now clear that the objective should be to change ALL of the faces, one way or the other.

I am truly beginning to hate these people... not just dislike or dislike intensely, but genuine hate.

But then again - it isn't like we didn't know this shit would happen when the government got control of healthcare. That was the holy-frickin-grail of being able to intrude into and control every aspect of our lives.
