New Calorie Czar Coming? And you thought we were kidding!


Add to Technorati Favorites

We warned you.  We told you it was inevitable.  And you thought it couldn’t happen in America?  Yeah, well… neither could Socialism, right? Yeah.

According to Michelle Malkin from Politico:

President Barack Obama eats his vegetables and exercises every day — and he really wants you to do the same…

…Any health care reform plan that Obama signs is almost certain to call for nutrition counseling, obesity screenings and wellness programs at workplaces and community centers. He wants more time in the school day for physical fitness, more nutritious school lunches and more bike paths, walking paths and grocery stores in underserved areas.

I interpret nutrition counseling, obesity screenings’ to possibly mean:  “If you want medical coverage; you’d better meet OUR criteria”.  Which I guess boils down to a whole lot of people not qualifying! 

It will also mean that more and more of our choices for our own individual lives are being stolen from us.  Do you want someone telling you that you cannot eat that quart of Cherry Garcia?  (While I wouldn’t actually eat anything by Ben and Jerry’s, you get the point!).  They are already telling us we cannot smoke in most places; even on sidewalks.  I know that the last thing I want to be told is that I really REALLY don’t need to eat that plate of shrimp scampi over linguine.

The president is filling top posts at Health and Human Services with officials who, in their previous jobs, outlawed trans fats, banned public smoking or required restaurants to provide a calorie count with that slice of banana cream pie.

 It is no one’s business but my own what I choose to eat or drink.  And, if I pay for my medical insurance, then I am covered, right?  Now yes.  Later?  Probably not.

So, we have the government dictating our eating and exercising habits.  What happens if one is unable to adhere to their dietary restrictions due to their own health problems?  What happens if a person is unable to adhere to their exercise strictures?  Does that mean that they won’t get any health care coverage?  How will the government know? 

First, I envision all fast food places being made illegal.  Or being forced to sell veggie burgers and soy fries only.  Which means a LOT of businesses will be outlawed.  Additional unemployment?  Additional public dole?  Yeah.  I also envision food Nazis setting menu standards for all restaurants.  Which means restaurants will no longer be able to have “signature” menus; because they will all have to be under the food czar’s standards.   What about companies that supply restaurants?  This is a HUGE industry.  Has anyone in Obama’s regime even considered that?  Oh.  Silly me. What was I thinking?

Another consideration?  How will the government KNOW what we are eating or how we are excercising?  That really scares me!  Can you imagine a quarterly inspection (unanounced, of course… one cannot be allowed to prepare for this) of our pantries and refrigerators? 

The ramifications of this is mind blowing.  Another question we must ask is, how will WE pay for this? 

Even Congress is getting into the act, giving serious consideration to taxing sugary drinks and alcohol to help pay for the overhaul.

Do not think for one minute that this won’t happen if Obama gets his way.  What we need to do is make sure he NEVER gets his way.  Again, as the Main Scoundrel has said, FAX, FAX, FAX your representatives and senators.  Let them know they will NEVER be re-elected if they allow ObamaCare to go through.
