Freedom is not having government shove anything down our throats.
If you enjoy things being shoved down your throat I will defend your decision to do so.

Perhaps the real agenda is Universal Health Care. What better way to avoid covering costly procedures?

Cancer diagnosis? Oh wow, could be very costly to treat. Let's see here...upon reviewing your history we found tobacco purchases on your debit card ten years ago. Sorry, but you are now exempt from being covered for any long-term treatment or care that is associated with any and all diseases determined to be associated with tobacco products. Pain management is all that you qualify for.

You have an ulcer? Ahhh, based on your employment history,you were a stock-broker for five years. That particular profession was found to be a highly stressful occupation. Any long-term treatment that may be related to stress will not be covered. Pain management is all that you are qualified for.

Colon problems? Your doctor's request for cancer screening will have to be reviewed by the medical authorization board, since we found causes for concern in your medical history data-base record. Our system shows that you took Prilosec for a period longer than the recommended two-week maximum-clearly stated on the product insert and on the back of the box. Any non-routine screening has to be approved by the board, and failure to abide by product recommendations will be considered in the decision process.


Yeah, I can see where this 'Executive Order' is going. I think we'll see a lot of EOs that may turn out to be 'sheep in wolves clothing' in the coming year. The Health Care bill isn't affordable and they need to come up with ways to save some big dough.

Talk about the luck of the 'undocumented' illegal immigrant! No paper trail to document bad habits.

You paint a very clear picture of the reality that lies ahead.

Anyone know if Obama is still secretly toking on his Marlboros?
Or perhaps a little "legal" Callifornia green.

Do you have a link to anything supporting this, maybe somewhere I can read the actual executive order?

Yea this is old and the order and advisory group never took place. I remember being told about this and being very mad but it never even happened.

I think the tea partiers shoot themselves in the foot several times over.

....all i seen in your post was some very sensational claims IN YOUR WORDS. I saw nothing from the actual "mandate" that even remotely supports your thread title.

This is "Death panels" all over again.

When will you people get a clue and stop making things up? Obama sucks as it is

Here is the latest MSM tidbit I see. Pols are great for following the mantra "Do as I say but not as I do". Politicians = hypocrites = power-hungry a-holes.

Some 15 years ago I was at a rotary luncheon and we had as our guest a local police chief who was basking in his glory because he professed that he was the mover and shaker behind changing New Jersey's seatbelt law which made it a citable offense for a driver to not wear his seatbelt when operating a motor vehicle. I asked him directly why he thought he had the right to mandate my actions when my not wearing a seatbelt could do no harm to other citizens. In an accident would not my unbelted body just be bouncing along the highway causing no harm to others? His answer: He was protecting me against myself. To make a long story short he was quite taken aback when I called him a communist. Needless to say I did not drive my car through his town much after that. (For the record I always wear a seatbelt but that is my choice)

We should always be wary when these pols say they are doing something for own good. Many pathways to hell are paved in gold. GOD! I hate these executive orders! Single handedly this power is the biggest threat to our individual freedoms.

I read the EO and I don't see ANYTHING scary or intrusive.Can someone tell me specifically what they're freaked out about in this EO? There is NO "mandate".
That's one of people's favorite word when talking about Obama. It's a fantasy, though.

Executive Order

Is it the existence of a council? Or is the the unfounded fear of what this means for the future? Or the word in the title "MANDATE"!!! ?

This really is being blown out of proportion. This says nothing about the government forcing you to live a healthy lifestyle.

I would really love to see Obama or any president come out and call out Americans as being fat lazy whiners and encourage them to do something about their health instead of trying to blame it on everything else.

1) Vote out all Democrats and Democratic sympathizing Republicans in the November 2010 elections. This will put Congress into a position to strongly block and counter any more of Obama's socialist directives for the next two years.
2) Get out and help and support the organizing and energizing of a viable third-party force and option. Get behind the emerging third-party candidate(s). For once in your life, get politically active!
3) In November, 2012, vote Obama out...and America's old values back in.

Well that sounds like a really good idea, except for one little snag... Our electoral process is utterly compromised and we don't 'vote' anymore.

I, Mr. Wendal, have signed an Executive Order in my home mandating "Break my foot off in your arse" so please come to my home and Modify my behavior.

Anyone stop to consider he is doing this because the FDA and other health regulatory bodies are such a dismal failure? Don't be so quick to judge things on the surface.

Doesn't the government already fight against drugs and obesity and all that stuff? Don't they already have initiatives about those subjects? While certainly behavioral modification sounds rather sinister I doubt it will turn out to go that far and besides we Americans are stuck firmly in our ways. If he thinks we're giving up our triple stacked burgers and over-stuffed cheese steaks he's got another thing coming

as i pointed out when I quoted the last paragraph of the eo
it is not enforceable against "any person"

if they were to recommend the creation of a law that was
then that would be something to get concerned about I guess

I can't believe I am saying this, but...

I am starting to believe that the paranoid right is correct when they talk about democratic "plants" looking to discredit the conservatives.

I mean the OPs bashing Pre. Obama have gotten so far fetched, blatenly dumb and unhinged from reality, that I can't think of anything else that explains them.

Read the actual Executive Order...which I would think anyone looking to create a thread on the topic would have done already....maybe even provided a link to it? IT IS THE F&**ing TOPIC after all.

Is there a national idiot contest I am unaware of? Some competition to create the stupidest anti-Obama story? Has the gulf oil seeped into our drinking water and American IQ points are quickly spiralling?

I can't even find an explanation for how dumb these OPs have become.

Ooooo the President wants Americans to be more healthy and wants a group of people to make suggestions on how to achieve that...He must be a marxist/anti-christ!!!!!

posted on Jun, 14 2010 @ 05:28 PM
This is like saying my state is fascist because they have an anti-Meth campaign and show commercials that try and deter people from using it. Egads! The audacity!

This is really grasping at straws here.

Edit to add: The title of the article/thread is very misleading. There is nothing "mandating" "lifestyle behavior modification". The only thing this EO does is set up a council to gather data about what constitutes an unhealthy lifestyle, promote a health lifestyle, and evaluate the results. There's nothing saying that citizens will be "mandated" to give up smoking, quit eating crappy food, etc. If anything we will only be exposed to annoying public announcements suggesting we live healthier lives. Oh, the terror.

and if you REALLY want to throw your mind for a loop, there are plenty of conservatives out there who would, knowing what you've already said, go create a post who's entire point is to be so absurd that it HAS TO BE a democrat who created it to imposter a conservative.

And so on...and so on...and so forth.

All we can really do is judge things how they are set forth in manners which can be proven.

We can prove that the right wing whack-o's in this country have gone to great lengths to make crap up to discredit obama

we can prove that the left wing whack-o's in this country have gone to great lengths to make crap up to discredit bush

so why would any intelligent human being choose to belong to either category?

And here I was thinking it might be something just for once.
For example reining inthe behavior that goes with obscene wealth. too many cars, too many houses, jet trips, too much of anything that can lead a person to beleive thatthey are above the rest of society as whole.
