"Our government" Trying to be Communist??

December 19 2007

Communism is a theoretical and practical concept that promotes establishment of a classless, stateless society based on common ownership of the means of production. It is usually considered a branch of the broader socialist movement that draws on the various political and intellectual movements that trace their origins back to the work of Karl Marx. Opponents say that communism is an ideology, whereas promoters say that it is the only political system without ideology because it represents the destiny of human kind, in the sense that if you consider that the desire to be free is not an ideology, then communism shows what is scientifically supposed to happen considering History in a scientific way.

With that said, I am going to say this!! Our government is really trying to control our lives by placing bans on smoking in public places and now a new ban that my friend Gunner has wrote about today in The Smyrna A.M. He tells us that Senator Tom Harkin from Iowa is trying to place a ban on junk food in schools and he agrees that this should be done. I on the other hand disagree with him. I feel that today’s children wouldn’t need to watch what they ate if they weren’t sitting watching t.v. or on the computer. Today’s children really have life so easy compared to when I was growing up back in the early 1980’s. We didn’t have Xbox’s, Ipods or even computers then to get us from getting out and exercising. I remember my father would come home from work and he would make us run laps around the back yard which was an acre of land and I hated him for that but now I understand why he made us do that. I see alot of children out there in this cruel world that are overweight but is that our schools fault? No it’s the parents fault for letting their children sit online, sit and watch t.v. and play video games. We as adults need to take our children and show them the right way to eat and teach them that exercise is always great for the body. I for one am overweight and work my ass off but still don’t loose the weight I should because of my diet. My sleep habits are really bad as well but it’s because of my job and I do exercise some while at work by moving around and staying active. I probably could loose alot more weight if I stayed off the Coca Cola and drank water but I don’t like water so it’s my fault that I am the way I am. Junk food is OK in moderation but if parents let their children eat and not exercise then its not good for you period!!!

Are we headed to a communism government or just a bullying government? You decide but we need to teach our children better because they are our future!!

Here are some facts that I have found from thisinteresting website

1. Nearly half of the children in North and South America will be overweight by 2010, up from what recent studies say is about one-third, according to a report published by the International Journal of Pediatric Obesity.

2. Approximately 22 million children under 5 years of age are overweight across the world. In the United States, the number of overweight children and adolescents has doubled in the last two to three decades, and similar doubling rates are being observed worldwide, including in developing countries and regions where an increase in Westernization of behavioral and dietary lifestyles is evident. (Obesity Research 9:S239-S243. 2001, Richard J. Deckelbaum and Christine L. Williams)

3. In 2003-2004, 17% of US children and adolescents were overweight. (JAMA. 2006 Apr 5;295(13):1549-55. Ogden CL, et al.)
