Water, water everywhere......

Prepare yourselves. The Great Satan had arisen once again.

Our children are the fattest in the world with our national obesity rate rising faster that a space shuttle at lift off. Type 2 and childhood diabetes are on the rise also, which will in a few years become a major medical crisis and will, in spite of people thrusting their heads in the sand, affect insurance premiums and medical costs if not addressed now.

Michelle Obama has previously advocated that children begin to get off their ever expanding butts and go outside and play. She was taking over parenting.

Michelle Obama advocated that school lunches begin to get a little more healthy since for many kids school lunches are the big meal of the day. She was attempting to take away a person’s right to choose what to eat.

But not content to take over the world with just those two maneuvers, she has begun attempting a third take over.

Advertising tells kids that to quench thirst or make it through the day nothing holds a candle to a big giant sugary drink, or a big can of energy drink. There is even so much sugar in what is passed off as natural juice drinks, the kids might as well grab a Coke or Pepsi.

Mrs. Obama, that Satan of the White House, is actually recommending that people drink more water instead of grabbing a caffeinated drink or one with a high fructose and corn syrup content.

In a voice reminiscent of Mercedes McCambridge as the Prince of Darkness in the Exorcist she actually said, “I’ve come to realize that if we were going to take just one step to make ourselves and our families healthier, probably the single best thing we could do is to simply drink more water. It’s as simple as that. Drink just one more glass of water a day and you can make a real difference for your health, for your energy and the way that you feel”.

Get out the crucifixes, the holy water, and the sacred oils. She is going to demonically possess us all. Has she become the last best hope for water retention?

Thank God we have the conservative pundits who can save us from this.

Teaparty.org, thankfully, pointed out that Mrs. Obama actually mentioned the benefits of drinking more water as healthier than just drinking caffeinated sugary beverages around 9/11 this year. Has she no respect for the victims of terrorism? Obviously she IS a Muslim (if, of course, you believe all Muslims are terrorists, which some people do.)

America’s paragon of health, Rush Limbaugh called it “just more command-and-control” from the Obama White House.

In response to an article in the Daily Caller, people making comments announced, among other things, that they kept to healthy diets and did hydrate regularly, but will not do so now that Michelle Obama suggested it was something Americans needed to do more, and using a Rush Limbaugh nickname for her, told Mrs. Obama to stay out of their lives.

Thank God she didn't suggest that it is important that we keep breathing.

So hug your pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution and hug your children close tonight. We might lose both to a tall glass of water.
