Can't tell if this is expert trolling or just bottom feeding ignorance...

Pertinent section:

A subtle but important shift in early childhood obesity rates in this low-income population seems to have begun in 2003. Obesity rates increased from 13.05 percent in 1998 to 15.21 percent in 2003. Soon, however, obesity rates began decreasing, reaching 14.94 percent by 2010. Extreme obesity followed a similar pattern, increasing from 1.75 percent to 2.22 percent from 1998 to 2003, but declining to 2.07 percent by 2010.

You're welcome.

Background: The prevalence of obesity among U.S. preschoolers has doubled in recent decades. Childhood obesity increases the risk for adult obesity and is associated with negative health consequences. Trends in the state-specific prevalence of obesity among low-income U.S. preschool children have not been examined since 2008. State-specific obesity prevalence surveillance helps determine the need for and impact of state and local obesity prevention strategies.

During 2008–2011, statistically significant downward trends in obesity prevalence were observed in 18 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Florida, Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey, South Dakota, and the U.S. Virgin Islands had the largest absolute decreases in obesity prevalence, each with a decrease of ≥1 percentage point. Twenty states and Puerto Rico experienced no significant change, and obesity prevalence increased significantly in three states.

You should have probably kept reading.

Other reports on young children (7,8)* have used data from CDC's Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System (PedNSS); one report showed that among 44 states/territories during 2003–2008 nine showed a significant decline in obesity, 24 showed significant increases, and 11 showed no statistically significant change (7).

The article you posted USES the report as a source I told you about.

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5828a1.htm

So this means 1 of 2 things. 1. The FLOTUS is taking credit for something she had nothing to do with, and as we know the Obamas NEVER do that.

Or 2. Most of the decrease occurred before the first lady decided to micromanage what school children eat in federally funded meal programs.

Again, you are welcome.

The latest study shows 19 states. last i checked 19 is more than 9.Keep trying though.This is funny. i can see you fuming over your keyboard trying so hard not to give credit where credit is due, and screaming "damn tou liberals!"


Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign. The first lady had pushed kids to eat healthy and exercise more, and thousands of child care centers have adopted the message. She's held nationwide healthy cooking contests for kids and agencies like the Department of Education have incorporated her message into their programs. And the date of her tenure in the White House corresponds roughly with the scope of the federal study.

So what you're saying is that a program that started in 2010 deserves the credit for a (minuscule) trend occurring from 2008-2011 that was otherwise in line with other longer-standing trends? Is this the kind of "science" you guys are always going on and on about?

An effort by Democrats to fix a glitch under Obamacare that harms small churches is widely expected to be blocked by Republicans, in what would be the latest example of GOP efforts to undermine President Obama’s signature legislative achievement by refusing to fix technical problems encountered during implementation.

so its may be a statistically anomoly, and represents a tiny fraction of workers...

truth is success businesses that are selling alot of product need workers to fill orders, mandate or no mandate.

The July government employment report released Friday showed the job market treading water.

And a closer look at one of the two measures the Labor Department uses to gauge employment suggests that part-time work accounted for almost all the job growth that’s been reported over the past six months.
Quote:
Hall is no ordinary academic. He ran the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the agency that puts out the monthly jobs report, from 2008 to 2012. Over the past six months, he said, the Household Survey shows 963,000 more people reporting that they were employed, and 936,000 of them reported they’re in part-time jobs.

“That is a really high number for a six-month period,” Hall said. “I’m not sure that has ever happened over six months before.”
Huh, even the former head of Obama's own BLS calls it unprecedented. No worries though. I'm sure it's just a weird kwinkydink.

Honestly, I'm not sure why the requirement for employers to provide health insurance for full-time employees is there to begin with. Seems to me the PPACA would work just fine without it.

Her program started IN 2010. The decreases were shown to have started to occur TEN years ago. How the **** can she claim credit for something she had nothing to do with? Oh, right. She is an Obama. That's how.

Default Newt betchslaps party of NO

This is from one of your own.

Gingrich: Republicans have 'zero' health care ideas

Boston (CNN) – Former House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich reprimanded his fellow Republicans in unusually harsh terms Wednesday, blaming GOP members of Congress for developing "zero" alternatives to President Obama's health care reform law.

Gingrich, who was speaking at the opening session of the Republican National Committee's summer meeting, fielded a question about "Obamacare" and recalled that Republicans were able to block Bill Clinton's health care reform effort in 1994 because they had "a positive alternative approach" to health care.

But Republicans today have nothing comparable to offer, Gingrich told nearly the 200 state party chairs, operatives and activists gathered in Boston for the conference.

"I will bet you, for most of you, you go home in the next two weeks when your members of Congress are home, and you look them in the eye and you say, 'What is your positive replacement for Obamacare?' They will have zero answer," Gingrich said.
Gingrich blamed the problem on Republican culture that rewards obstruction and negativity instead of innovation and "being positive."
"We are caught up right now in a culture, and you see it every single day, where as long as we are negative and as long as we are vicious and as long as we can tear down our opponent, we don't have to learn anything," Gingrich said, acknowledging the "totally candid" nature of his remarks. "We have to do the homework."

"This is a very deep problem," said Gingrich, who was recently named one of the hosts of CNN's political talk show "Crossfire."

Gingrich's remarks were pegged to his forthcoming book "Breakout," which calls on Republicans to embrace new technologies and policies in an effort to become a party of the future.

President Obama also accused Republicans of having no health care plan during a White House press conference last week, a claim that was met with disdain by House Republican leaders who circulated a series of health care ideas to reporters after the president's remarks.

A number of prominent conservatives in the House and Senate are pushing to shut down the federal government in a bid to de-fund the president's health care law when Congress takes up a government spending measure in late September.
Asked if he agreed with Gingrich's arguments, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said "not completely." He pointed to a number of piecemeal health care proposals available on the web sites of House Republican leaders.

Priebus said he supports repealing or de-funding Obamacare, but pressed on whether he would support a government shutdown to accomplish those goals, Priebus said he did not want to debate tactics.

Funny, someone else was just b****ing the other day about AEI bothering to still publish different proposals at this late Obamacare hour and what a waste of time that was. Which is it?

Anyway, as for the Newt, mostly bull****.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/aroy/201...dicare-reform/

Newt's always trying to separate himself as an "ideas" guy. But the real problem isn't that there aren't alternative ideas. It's that nobody talks about your ideas if you don't have the power to implement them.

The bolded is straight up stupid. I said no such thing, stop trying to deflect because you are losing the argument.

She can take credit for her program, and why you think I'd say otherwise is ridiculous. She is talking about, and taking credit for, decreases in obesity that happened before this program was even a thought. Do you not see the difference?
