Rush Limbaugh blames Liberals for obesity
Edited on Thu Aug-31-06 04:17 PM by CatWoman
LIMBAUGH: And so, now, we find out that there is obesity and all this amongst the poor more than amongst those who are not poor. Its sort of a textbook case of what happens when we let liberals have their way. I mean, for decades, all over the world, weve been beat about the head that there are hungry people out there, that they are starving. UNICEF how many of you trick-or-treated for UNICEF? Did you "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF," Brian? We all did did you? We all trick-or-treated. One of the biggest scams on the face of the earth. It was the scam was to get everybody loving the United Nations. The scam was to get everybody thinking the United Nations is feeding poor people. Remember all these stories: "A dime a day will feed 20 kids in some outward place around the world"?

LIMBAUGH: This is what happens when you let the left run things. Weve been beat about the head. There are hungry people everywhere. UNICEF got it all started. Weve seen the babies with the extended tummies, the walking skeletons, told that kids cant learn unless theyre fed. Weve been guilted into pouring resources on the problem. And now, now, the latest crisis is that there is obesity among those who are impoverished. Because we are sympathetic, we are compassionate people, we have responded by letting our government literally feed these people to the point of obesity. At least here in America, didnt teach them how to fish, we gave them the fish. Didnt teach them how to butcher a slaughter a cow to get the butter, we gave them the butter. The real bloat here, as we know, is in is in government.

6. Cheap, high carbohydrate foods cause obesity..
If you have to eat too much pasta, Mac N' Cheese, Ramen noodles, bread, potatoes, etc., you're getting alot of empty calories and alot of weight.

15. Um ... I know. That was a joke.
You know, funny? Ha ha. Rush Limbaugh's as big as a blimp. Hee hee?


Anyway, this is just another example of Rush confusing the issue, something he does well. He equates the obesity problem in America's poor with UNICEF's aiding of poor people throughout the world. And while obesity and poverty can go hand in hand in America, the same cannot be said of sub-Saharan Africa, for example. I'm sure Rush lis well aware of this, but I'm equally sure that he doesn't give a fuck.

8. "...slaughter a cow to get butter?"
Is that a metaphor for the ham-handed way Mr. Bush achieved "regime change?"

9. Well, Rush sure looks fed and it's clear he hasn't learned too much...
:yoiks:


(everybody can be right once in a while, but Rush is a real whackpot... though we won't hear him talk of drug abusers for at least another 5 years or when the collective public forgets, which will be in about 3 weeks...)

18. "When you let the left run things."
rush, its a current report. You and your badass, flag waving, constitution hating "christians" have been in charge for awhile. And Mississippi (a red state, rush) is number one in obesity. Aren't my fellow Mississippians who listen to you and are "conservatives" free thinkers able to make the right choices for themselves? Or maybe they just want to be drug addicted, fat ass, divorcee like you rush. God don't you wish you had a military medal or two to show the lemmings? God, to dispute them is becoming boring.

25. This from the fat windbag who talks about his "formerly nicotine stained
fingers" while smoking an effin' cigar.

The same bloated bloviator who talks about sending drug users "up the river" while whacked out on oxicontin.

Hypocrisy without shame.

News and commentary, left to right

28. In his case not true, Kerry's spkesperson told him to pick up a history
book, not a donut. It's not their fault he took the donuts instead.
