Most people I know just roll their eyes when Michelle Obama comes out with a new part of her anti-obesity program, mainly because we are Americans and we don't need someone telling us what to do. But then, most people I know understand right from wrong and will pay our own way, thank you very much, and don't look to government to solve our problems.
But another headline touting another grand plan to get kids moving and eating healthy caught my eye and I thought, with all the hate-mongering and victimization happening in her Sweet Home Chicago and cities nationwide, she could lead as a First Lady ought to, and start healing the nation by teaching the female youth in this country how to behave as ladies.
Women can and should lead the way on improving the treatment of women and in turn, the treatment of everyone.
She has mentioned that being in the White House is kind of like being in prison. So, I ask, what better use of time could there be for a First Lady, who happens to be in the sphere of influence of every young female, regardless of color, than to teach them how to refuse to be labeled a "bitch" or a "ho" and how twerking is unacceptable?
Just once, I'd like to see Michelle Obama sit next to someone like Snooki on the couch at The View and have her say, "Sweetie, you don't need to degrade yourself like that. Twerking is not sexy, dear, it's porn."
So, perhaps I have found the reason why Mrs. Obama doesn't teach the youth of today to respect themselves. Perhaps, it is because keeping them degraded and sexually promiscuous and ruled by emotion keeps them dependent on government.
