Sebelius: Youth Violence Leads to Asthma and Obesity (and a video too!)

Yes, you ARE reading this right !!

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius actually might believe this

Any normal American would and should right ?

She also has the power to make your life better under ObombaCare.

( – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Monday that youth violence is a “chronic health issue” that can lead to asthma, obesity, or depression for "the youth who are involved," although she did not make clear whether she was speaking solely about the victims of youth violence or the perpetrators or both.

“But it's important to remember--you just heard from the law enforcement side of this--it’s important to remember that the costs of violence go beyond deaths or injuries or tolls on families and communities,” Sebelius said at a Department of Justice conference Monday on youth violence. “Violence is also a chronic health issue.”

“It leads to asthma, it leads to obesity or depression among the youth who are involved,” Sebelius said at the event in Washington, D.C.

Sebelius went to say, “It’s an economic issue. Currently, it’s thought to cost about $14 billion in medical costs and lost productivity, not just for those acts of violence. And that clearly doesn’t include the economics of the violence itself on communities.”

Coming from Kathleen makes be believe the total opposite !!

Our very existence as Humans may be in Her hands !!!

The things they say are so fabricated and distorted its like being in Clockwork Orange or even the movie Little Nicky somtimes. Do they get paid for those kind of statements.

Asthma and Obesity is not caused from youth violence. They're not related.

The national IQ average drops 30 points anytime someone in this administration opens their mouth.

I'm going to have to read the whole source but did she mention proper parenting ANYWHERE?

“We think that the solutions” to youth violence, said Sebelius, “start with child care and Head Start programs that we fund in cities around the country. And today we’re working with states and communities to make sure our children are getting the high quality early care and education they need, not only to succeed in school but for the first time, in a pretty historic partnership with the Department of Education, we recognize that social and emotional skills are a critical part of that early learning.”

From the OP's source.

Nope. Not a damned word about parenting. It's governments responsibility to raise children now.

*raises hands in disgust!*

Ah yes, the old causation vs correlation fallacy.
Imagine how America would benefit if everyone took an introductory logic / critical reasoning course.

Are people really stupid enough to believe this? I could see it causing depression, maybe even obesity in an extremely tangential way. But asthma?

Let's create a system where a kid defending himself in a fight receives punishment then blame the depression on the "violence".

I have an idea, how about let the kids be kids and if someone picks a fight and they get their butt whooped serves as a lesson that it probably isn't a good idea to go around picking fights.

Bunch of nanny state BS politics.

How about it causes none of the above !!

This is mania at its' best ....

The problem is, Obama & Co. has placed this nut case in power.
And she is the leader for 100's more with the same thinking !!

That power is looking for all weaknesses.

As they find the weaknesses, they begin the exploitations.

This woman Kathleen Sebelius is the HHS Director.

Read ObamaCare and see the list of power She alone has.

The entire nation is in grave danger right now.

She is not the only one.

There's a whole army of people just like her, and some are worse.
