Viva Liberte!

Viva Liberte!

That this should even be discussed or remotely considered speaks volumes about the direction we are headed. Hopefully they'll allow us to keep watching American Idol.

Kid limits

Obese children seized.

Well, the guy advocating 2 kids per family is, of course, a complete idiot. Most western countries (and Japan) are already below the replacement birthrate. The US has one of the higher birthrates in the developed world and even so we're barely at break even. Japan is losing population. So is Russia. A number of Western European countries with rising populations are doing so only because of immigration from third world countries. I have mixed feelings about Mark Steyn but his book "America Alone" has a lot of data about declining birthrates and the problem it is causing in some countries and the demographic shift that will occur in many, particularly Western Europe, as they become predominantly Muslim.

Childhood obesity is certainly a problem but our cultural and individual appetites are out-of-control and government is certainly not the solution for fixing this. I'd suggest that parent's could help their obese kids, James, but (and I include myself in this mix) most parents are morons. So, what to do? I don't know...I do what I can with my family, and I promise to spend more time on my light box tomorrow morning, and perhaps the world will seem less grim than it does today...

I hear ya Mike...and yes I am an idiot as far as parenting goes. More than that...I'm an obese idiot.

That said, of course, the same sort of idiots run the government and when you get a "collective" of idiots bent on saving "disadvantaged" or "ignorant" other idiots I suspect the whole affair ends up being idiotic and perhaps dangerous.

Best to let individual liberty triumph in the realm of idiocy. Less damage done usually.

Oh, I'll answer to idiot, too. :) I could stand to lose a few pounds, as well. But, you know, dark beer...
