seems that big business which did PSA's pretty regular in the beginning but now they have not only given us the shortest month but they have abandoned the respect.
Researchers are still exploring what factors caused the early childhood obesity rate to plummet 43 percent over the last decade. But a group of health experts at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill think that they have found at least part of the answer: changes to the federally funded Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children that gave poor mothers the means to purchase more fresh produce for their children.
This program, which is better known as WIC, provides billions of dollars per year in nutritious food vouchers for low-income pregnant women, breast-feeding women, and children younger than five. WIC was created in the 1970s, but it wasn't until 2009 that it provided mothers with vouchers for fruits and vegetables. That's the change that the North Carolina researchers think may have contributed to the stunning decline in obesity rates.
Barry M. Popkin, a UNC nutrition professor, and two colleagues recently finished a massive study, to be published in the March 2014 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, of the calorie consumption of US households from 2003 to 2011. During this time period, Popkin says, households with children purchased fewer calories every year. That pattern persisted even after researchers controlled for the effects of the recession. For the later years covered by the study, Popkin links the decline to WIC.
we have to remember and respect the fact that even though these suppression's are as heinous as murder if allowed to be implemented they would cause the same result just slower and more inhumane. they don't care about your or your kids if they did they would pass gun laws instead of telling you to arm your grade school kid.
Republicans looking to slash federal spending have targeted WIC in recent years. In March 2012, for example, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives tried to cut $243 million from WIC. The cut, which did not become law, "would have resulted in WIC having to turn away hundreds of thousands of eligible applicants," write Zoë Neuberger and Robert Greenstein, analysts for the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a progressive think tank.
About 9 million low-income mothers and children are enrolled in WIC, which also provides parents with health care referrals and nutrition advice. In 2011, the program served about half of all eligible infants born in the United States.
on top of that they wanted 40 billion cut from the food stamp program, where's the love guess they left it on the floor of congress as they walked over it and out. Nov. 4th don't forget if you need to get right do it now can't say ahh crap Nov. 5th it's too late.
head start was just that for millions of kids all about keeping catching up with the rest of the world we trail by double digits and what do republicans do you ask,
if they cared about anything especially education then we wouldn't be where we are.
Bill O'Reilly: "There's Got To Be Some Downside To Having A Woman President" O'Reilly Is Just Asking: "Something That May Not Fit With That Office, Correct?"
you are going to have to listen to this i can't rebut it any better than they do themselves, and insult to injury the females are sitting there not agreeing so much but just as ridiculous assumptions of another women while O'Reilly puts words in their mouths, now their base hears this and are now convinced that they themselves are not ready for a woman Pres.,
he is not as his mantra says "looking out for the folks" any looking out is to make sure he can say stupid crap and feel confident that they will bite. the folks are collateral damage in their war against everything and are totally oblivious to the fact but looking forward to the trip.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly and senior political analyst Brit Hume were shocked by the suggestion that Arizona's anti-gay law might allow "a Christian doctor who is deeply conservative in his religious views to deny treatment" to patients on the basis of sexual orientation, an interesting change of pace for a network that has no problems regularly defending the religiously-based denial of women's health services.
In a February 25 segment on Fox's The Kelly File, Kelly and Hume agreed that the Arizona law -- which could provide legal protections to religious business owners who deny services and accommodations to gay couples on the basis of their sexual orientation -- went too far because the possibility of denying medical services to gay people was "an order of magnitude greater than the legal right to deny services to a gay wedding":
IMO republicans have finally decided to read the graffiti on the wall, they are losing the people they have demagogue'd for decades, and all their "PRINCIPLES" formerly known as "VALUES" is just a way of life for only bigots and racist and the people no longer want to tolerate those who tolerate nothing but their own reprehensibility.
if you haven't noticed they are switching all the former hate except for Pres. and handing a broken leafless olive branch to "we the people" they are schmoozing us for favor and think we are too stupid to recognize that this 180 degree stunt is not real once in they will set about implementing their "PRINCIPLES" formerly known as "VALUES" just like their governors did fist day in the seat they started tightening the vice on the people, vote restriction, no jobs, gerrymandering, refusal to give health care need i say more?
Fox News dedicated its first segment on Gov. Brewer's veto of Arizona's anti-gay bill to an interview with one of America's most notorious anti-gay hate group leaders.
On February 26, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced that she had vetoed Senate Bill 1062, which would have allowed businesses and individuals to engage in legal discrimination by denying services to gay people on religious grounds. Brewer said that the bill "does not address a specific or pressing concern," and that it "is broadly worded, and could result in unintended and negative consequences."
Fox's Megyn Kelly opened the February 26 edition of her show with a segment on Brewer's veto that featured Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay Family Research Council. Kelly gave Perkins a platform to lambast the veto as an example of "how fundamental freedoms are trampled," while citing a New Mexico couple who were prosecuted for refusing service to a same-sex couple as proof that the law differs from discrimination against mixed-race couples in that it "address[es] some very significant problems":
so if you are a bigot your rights take precedent over all other American's rights they can do all the things they accuse others of stomping on the rights of others when it's the others who they are trampling on their rights, no goose gander syndrome here just selfish bigoted imposing of one's "PRINCIPLES" formely known as " VALUES" on other Americans that have the right now to do all they tried to deny them, that is mighty Christian of them wouldn't you say?
