MoBama's Fat Kids Part II: Childhood Obesity and The Progressive Agenda
Yesterday I posted about Michelle Obama's recent vistit to the doctor's office with her daughters, as described on ABC News' website.
I would like to continue that post briefly by discussing a fact that I kind of danced around earlier, but that came to me clearly as I began to reply to comments left on that post.
I sincerely believe that Michelle Obama is the new face for the campaign to "reform" our "health care" system in America.
According to this list of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, Rule #7 states:
A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.
Well, let's address what has taken place over the past 30-60 days, most specifically since Scott Brown won the junior Senate seat in Massachusetts.
The new topic coming from The White House is suddenly jobs. We've been plummeting (or skyrocketing) to nearly ten percent unemployment and quadrupled the national deficit with a "stimulus" plan that didn't stimulate anything except som turtles in Florida who can now pass under the freeway, yet there was seemingly no honest and intense concern for jobs over the past year.
Suddenly Brown wins what he declares is "The 41st vote against Obamacare" and the topic has changed. Hmmm...
Next, we address Rule #8 from the same Rules list:
Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.
Keep the pressure on. How is The White House to do this if they are now fully consumed in the most important issue America faces - our depleting workforce?
Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose. In other words... Instead of sending Barack Hussein out on the road to speak the praises of government intrusion, use MoBama, but veil her rhetoric in different messaging. Childhood obesity, for starters...
The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. We will now begin to see a campaign by Team Obama. She will be out there "doing it for the children" as liberals love to do, and he will fall back and take a less forceful position than we've seen from him in the past.
He will continue to focus on jobs. We have a new "Jobs Bill" coming down the pike. Rest assured, it will be a complete and total failure, just as was the stimulus Obama signed in February 2009. We will become further entrenched in debt as a nation, and we will all begin to grumble more loudly and aggressively. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.
We already have programs nationwide that provide "free" health care for a large number of Americans. Congress just last year passed a re-authorization of the SCHIP program, which allows a family of four earning up to $65,000 (or their state's median income) to receive "free" full insurance coverage.
It is being widely reported that we will soon be paying through taxes as much as fifty percent of all health care costs, and that health care as a percent of the national budget will reach twenty percent by 2015. The mainstream media is on board with the agenda, and the longer it takes for our economy to recover - if it can under Progressive tax and spend policies - the more in the tank the media will become.
Make no mistake - we are in the midst of a full-fledged battle for our individual sovereignty, and Michelle Obama's new venture into the public eye as the face of concern over childhood obesity is just another tactic by a well prepared and dedicated Progressive band of Radicals.
