    Some people just don’t get it. They give kids stuff they don’t like at taxpayer expense (how about we make that the parents’ responsibility) and then act surprised when it ends up in the garbage, wasted. Liberal control freaks trying to dictate every aspect of people’s lives, even the minutia. It’s right up there with deciding what kind of light bulb you are allowed to buy, what sized soft drink you are allowed to order, whether you want a paper or plastic bag at the store, whether or not you want to join a union, etc. They are all about taking away your choices…unless of course it is the sacred “choice” of being able to murder your own child, then suddenly choice is a good thing again.

    She could start with her own derriere.

    Geez, you so need some therapy. If encouraging you to eat healthy, get some exercise and try to have a little less impact on the Earth is a bad thing, well tell that to my mother. She’s been saying the same things for decades (I had to listen at least six) and she’s a little to the right of Hannity. As for your last sentence about murdering children, Republicans like to enlist them then send them overseas to die in wars of choice.

    I love guys who call out the hottest, funniest, most interesting … and darkest … First Lady in history as unattractive.

    Here we’ve got some commenter who uses Semper Fi as his avatar online but who in reality hasn’t got the guts to say what really bothers him about the lady. If you’re gonna be that way, you could at least be brave enough to man up and admit what we already know about you, coward.

    The scary part is that the Federal Government has assumed the power to interfere with people’s lives in such a minuscule matter. What’s next, lightbulbs, shower heads, toilets?

    Yes, I still read this strip. And, much to the annoyance of many other posters on this strip, I think I’ll post something today, as well.
    .
    As a registered Democrat who voted for Barrack Obama, as a father of a daughter who was declared uninsurable under the pre-Obamacare rules, a daughter whose medical issues cost many times more money than I will ever be able to make,
    .
    To this day, I will maintain that Obamacare, or something like it, was always needed, all along.
    .
    That said, Scott (or Eric) did manage to hit upon the one facet of this issue that strikes my nerves: Michelle’s ill-conceived “war on obesity” – in particular, childhood obesity.
    .
    There are those who feel as if Michelle’s actions amount to the following oversimplified statement: The solution to the bullying of fat kids is to get rid of the fat kids. I tend to agree with this, but grant (and hope) that this is inadvertent.
    .
    Let’s face it: We are dealing with the “last safe prejudice,” as Oprah Winfrey once so eloquently put it. But it is too bad that even Oprah did as much as she could to perpetuate that prejudice. And her successor, Doctor Oz, is even worse.
    .
    And, oddly enough, I thank Scott for highlighting this issue!
    .
    Wait! Wait! I can see it now!
    .
    Doctor Oz read today’s Prickly City!
    .
    Maybe we’re going to hear even more “Off with their fat!”
    .
    Oh, well. Time for the night worker, day sleeper, to go to bed.
    .
    Until next time, pleeeaasaaant dreeeaams?!? (To the loud and lengthy sound of a creaking door…)

    - If First Lady Obama’s opponents want to eat more fat, more power to them. Feel free to eat all the fat, sugar, and salt you want.

    Yes, following your typical pattern of going right to the insults. Sorry but kids are growing, while a low fat diet is good for me it is not good for kids. They are actually having problems with kids that are involved in athletics not getting enough food at lunch that will fuel them through their after lunch activities. Obesity is being caused by lack of activity. Liberals have made schools a no compete zone. Tag is too rough, monkey bars make the kids that can’t do it feel inadequate and God forbid you have a race as someone would actually win it. Maybe you can make it a mandatory tie. Oops, I said God, that’s not allowed in schools either.

    I will say what bothers me about the lady. She is a socialist (as her husband) who hates America and wants to re-do it as she sees fit and the heck with everyone else because she is smarter than them(just ask her). She grew up privilaged got sent to the best schools, had opurtunities that few people get but yet she wants you to cry her a river because things are as she wants.

    You mean all those children being killed in wars we start? There are far more than you know about. Drones alone are targeting anyone of “military age” which is from 14-50.

    @cheapskate0

    Such children need special diets and being forced to adhere to them or they will have loads of medical problems and early death. Which ever is fine with me.

    By Socialist you mean like helping our richest companies and people do so well under him? Yes, that kind.

    Its so scary to have an admin that wants people to be healthy. Right wingers don’t want their fat heads to be reduced.

    Maybe you’d be happier in a country with an official religion and where women know their place, like Saudi Arabia. You sure aren’t an American.
