    you might find that they are often not the same kids being talked about

    then there's this:

    “Babies born with low birth weight may become metabolically programmed during gestation to become very efficient at conserving calories, thus becoming obese later in life,’’ Pérez-Escamilla said.

    I would seriously wonder about this story. If US kids are actually hungry, it's more likely because Mom does things like turning aside the stuff that takes some work to cook, like bagged rice and beans, than because the food isn't available.

    Having lived most of my adult life in neighborhoods alongside the welfare-poor, I have seen firsthand how they function. One neighbor used to bring us all the food that she didn't want to spend time cooking from the government commodities hand out and from food pantries. Then she'd complain that they "never have enough to make it through the end of the month."

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    He claims to be a teacher, but will not tell what subject he is qualified to teach (I suspect that he's an education major, which is the bottom of the academic barrel).

    Judging by the thought given most of his answers, he teaches remedial kindergarten.

    Do you really think small children could be fooled by him?
    Maybe he teaches liberals how to lie or something like that.
