Moochelle tells everyone to drink unsweetened tea & stop going to buffets. Mrs. Nanny state speaks.

By Todd Starnes
The First Lady of these United States is now urging Americans to stop drinking sweet tea.
Yes – friends – you heard correctly. Mrs. Obama has declared war on the House Wine of the South. It’s all part of her anti-obesity campaign — called Let’s Move.

If I ate some of the crap she eats, I'd be moving too. Right to the bathroom to puke it up. - TGFP.

The website Free Beacon was the first to report on her latest culinary atrocities – urging us to wash down our lettuce and bean sprouts with unsweetened tea.

There's a REASON why you sweeten tea. It's bitter ! What a FOOL this woman truly is. I only use suger in one thing. I put it in spaghetti sauce to cut some of the acidity. I use Splenda and honey in hot tea, Splenda in cold. I love Peach Snapple, make batches of iced tea from bags in my stone crock in the summer ( Bigelow's Lemon Lift or Lipton Tea ) & love Rush Limbaugh's iced tea even though  its a bit too bitter because he uses black tea bags along with green tea,  - TGFP.

The First Lady also told Americans to stay away from all-you-can-eat buffets — which I’m sure is great news for all those folks employed by all-you-can-eat buffets.
Mrs. Obama also wants us to consider rustling up some tasty eats from the Department of Agriculture’s Pinterest page. Among her personal favorites are entrees like bean-kale burgers  and curried pumpkin with peas.
I just got a little throw up in my mouth, America.

So did I. TGFP.

Yecch. No wonder she looks like Skeletor. But how did she get such a big ass eating stuff like that ? Does the curry settle in her butt ?- TGFP.

The great dictator Obama speaks again. Wants mandatory voting. More nanny statism.

They say the only two things that are certain in life are death and taxes. President Barack Obama wants to add one more: voting.

Obama floats making voting mandatory, calling it 'potentially transformative'

This guy is obsessessed with transforming everything. Who asked him to continually want to CHANGE things ? Millions didn't. I think he watched too much Transformers and it went to his head. - TGFP.

Obama floated the idea of mandatory voting in the U.S. while speaking to a civic group in Cleveland on Wednesday. Asked about the influence of money in U.S. elections, Obama digressed into the topic of voting rights and said the U.S. should be making it easier for people to vote.
Just ask Australia, where citizens have no choice but to vote, the president said.
"If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country," Obama said, calling it "potentially transformative." Not only that, Obama said, but universal voting would "counteract money more than anything."
Disproportionately, Americans who skip the polls on Election Day are younger, lower-income and more likely to be immigrants or minorities, Obama said. "There's a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls," he said in a veiled reference to voter identification laws in a number of states.
Less than 37 percent of eligible voters cast ballots in the 2014 midterms, according to the United States Election Project. And a Pew Research Center study found that those avoiding the polls in 2014 tended to be younger, poorer, less educated and more racially diverse.
At least two dozen countries have some form of compulsory voting, including Belgium, Brazil and Argentina. In many systems, absconders must provide a valid excuse or face a fine, although a few countries have laws on the books that allow for potential imprisonment.
At issue, Obama said, is the sway that those with money can have on U.S. elections, where low overall turnout often gives an advantage to the party best able to turn out its base. Obama has opposed Citizens United and other court rulings that cleared the way for super PACs and unlimited campaign spending, but embraced such groups in his 2012 re-election campaign out of fear he'd be outspent.
Obama said he thought it would be "fun" for the U.S. to consider amending the Constitution to change the role that money plays in the electoral system. But don't hold your breath.
"Realistically, given the requirements of that process, that would be a long-term proposition," he said.

Second superbug outbreak at new LA hospital.

4 patients infected with superbug at second Los Angeles hospital

CDC issues superbug warning for doctors' offices

Four patients at a Los Angeles-area hospital have been infected with the antibiotic-resistant “superbug” linked to a type of medical scope that is used on more than a half-million people in the U.S. every year, the hospital said.
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said in a statement that is halted endoscopic procedures after learning about the outbreak after two patients died from the superbug known as CRE at Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center two weeks ago.
The hospital said the germ may have been transmitted through a duodenoscope made by Olympus Corp. during procedures performed between August and January.
Cedars said one patient has died, but it was unrelated to the superbug infection.
The hospital said there's no evidence other patients are at risk. But as a precaution, it's sending free home-test kits to 67 more patients who had procedures to diagnose pancreatic and bile-duct problems.
CRE, or carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, can cause infections of the bladder or lungs and can contribute to the deaths of seriously infected patients. The cause of CRE can be traced back to hard-to-clean medical scopes made by Olympus and other companies.
Cedars and UCLA said infections occurred despite cleaning the devices to the manufacturer's standards. The hospitals have since implemented more stringent disinfection procedures.
In the UCLA outbreak, the hospital offered free testing to about 170 patients who were potentially exposed. The hospital said Wednesday it doesn't have an update on the results.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has said it received reports of 135 patients in the U.S. who may have been infected by contaminated scopes between January 2013 and December 2014. The agency has acknowledged that the design of the scopes can make them hard to clean, but it said pulling them off the market would deprive patients of "this beneficial and often life-saving procedure."
Cedars removed the contaminated scope from use and will resume endoscopic procedures after consulting other hospitals and government agencies.

LAST GASP? Much of US braces for what may be final storm of brutal winter. Videos.

A LARGE SWATH of Americans from north Texas to southern New England are bracing for more snow, sleet and freezing rain as many hope it will be the final storm of a brutal winter that has battered the East Coast.

States of emergency declared as much of US braces for winter storm

March 4, 2015: Henderson, Ky., mail carrier Lindsey Hendrix crosses a snow-covered South Main Street Wednesday as a major winter storm is expected to bring up to 8 inches of snow to the area.

Residents from north Texas to southern New England prepared for snow, sleet, and freezing rain as what many hoped would be the final storm of a brutal winter bore down on the East Coast.
In Washington, D.C., the federal government announced that it offices would be closed Thursday due to an expected snowfall of between 4 and 8 inches. The Office of Personnel Management says non-emergency personnel in and around Washington are granted excused absences for the day. Emergency employees and telework-ready employees are expected to work.
The House of Representatives and Senate also scrapped their scheduled session Thursday due to the weather forecast. Senate leaders set the last vote of the week for 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. But that wasn't good enough for Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.
"Is there any way you could change that to 2:20 from 2:30?" Inhofe asked on the Senate floor. "There are four people who can't make planes otherwise." His request was accommodated.
Governors in Alabama, Mississippi, West Virginia and New Jersey declared states of emergency in advance of the storm, while Mississippi counties were advised to open shelters powered by generators to give residents an option beyond cold, dark homes in the event of power outages.
Temperatures plummeted as the storm pushed east: The mercury fell from 71 degrees to 52 degrees in Monticello, Arkansas, and from 74 to 48 in Greenville, Mississippi — both within an hour. By Wednesday afternoon, readings were in the mid-20s across Arkansas.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that a winter storm warning was in effect for the area until 1 p.m. Thursday, and snowfall was expected to reach six inches. Philadelphia, where a snow emergency went into effect Thursday morning, was expected to get between 5 and 8 inches, while New York City was expecting between 4 and 6 inches of snow, with parts of Long Island forecast for even more.
But no city has been hit harder this winter than Boston. The latest snowfall was expected to put the city close to matching, if not breaking, the high mark for recorded snowfall, set at 107.6 inches in the winter of 1995-96. The city's records date back to 1872.

As of Wednesday night, the city was just over 2 inches away from matching the mark, a milestone some Bostonians said they were eagerly anticipating.
"I want the record. We earned the record," Erin O'Brien, a professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts-Boston, told the Associated Press.
Others were less enthusiastic.
"I really don't care if we don't beat the record for snowiest winter," said Amy Ouellette, a marketing associate in Salem, north of Boston. "I just want it over and I want spring and sun to melt it all."
The patience of thousands of air travelers across the nation was going to be tested as airlines canceled more than 1,800 U.S. flights scheduled for Thursday after scrubbing nearly 1,700 through early evening on Wednesday, according to tracking service
The airports that were hardest hit Thursday included Dallas-Fort Worth, Philadelphia, Reagan National and Dulles in the Washington area, and LaGuardia and Newark in the New York City area.
The bulk of cancelations for Thursday are on regional carriers such as ExpressJet and Republic that operate flights with smaller aircraft for the major airlines.
Schools from Texas to West Virginia closed early Wednesday and Penn State University canceled classes due to weather for the first time in eight years. The Ohio State University men's basketball team had a harrowing trip back to their game against the Nittany Lions Wednesday evening, as icy runways in State College, forced the team's plane to land in Latrobe, about 110 miles away. The team took a bus the rest of the way to Penn State, traveling at times through dense fog and rain. The Buckeyes managed to shake off the unplanned detours and won the game, 77-67.
In upstate New York, wet, heavy snow was blamed for a partial barn roof collapse that killed at least five cows Wednesday morning in central New York. The collapse at the Whey Street Dairy in Cuyler, 25 miles southeast of Syracuse, was one of hundreds of roof collapses blamed on heavy snow in the Northeast this winter. Massachusetts officials say they've received reports of nearly 200 roof collapses since Feb. 9.
No one was injured Wednesday morning when a 100-foot by 100-foot section of the roof of Boston's vacant Bayside Expo Center collapsed. The building was previously slated for demolition.

Peterson and Vikings meet.

Video in link.

By Ben Goessling |                   Updated: March 4, 2015, 8:07 PM ET

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and GM Rick Spielman leave Adrian Peterson's home after meeting with the running back Wednesday.

When contacted by ESPN shortly after the meeting, Peterson said it went well but added that he wished to keep the details private.

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman spent more than four hours at Adrian Peterson's home outside Houston on Wednesday afternoon, meeting with the 2012 NFL MVP to discuss his feelings about returning to the Vikings next season.
"I appreciate Rick [Spielman] and Coach [Mike] Zimmer coming down to see me today. We had a great dialogue and they were able to understand where I was coming from and concerns my family and I still have. We respect each other and hopefully the situation can pan out so that everyone involved is content," Peterson said in a statement released to ESPN's Josina Anderson.
Spielman and Zimmer arrived at Peterson's house around noon Wednesday, meeting with the running back in person for the first time since he was placed on the commissioner's exempt list Sept. 17. Before the meeting was over, Peterson's wife, Ashley, joined them.

Peterson, who missed 15 games in 2014 after he was indicted Sept. 12 on child injury charges for disciplining his 4-year-old son, told ESPN last month he was "still uneasy" about returning to the Vikings, adding that he was unsure how much support he had from the team.
Peterson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless injury Nov. 4, and on Dec. 12 he was suspended until April 15. On Thursday, however, a federal judge ordered the NFL to vacate Peterson's suspension; the league appealed the decision and put Peterson back on the exempt list. The change in his status did allow the Vikings to communicate directly with Peterson for the first time since September, and the team wasted little time in scheduling a face-to-face meeting with the running back.
Minnesota can officially trade Peterson once the new league year starts Tuesday. The Vikings can release him or ask him to restructure his contract at any time. Peterson, who turns 30 on March 21, is scheduled to make $12.75 million in 2015, though the Vikings will have more than $25 million in cap space once their trade of quarterback Matt Cassel becomes official Tuesday.
Neither Zimmer nor Spielman spoke with a group of television crews stationed outside Peterson's home.
