Obama's America: A Rising Hunger Among Children

Well, hopefully those apple slices in Happy Meals will help these children suffering from malnutrition during this glorious Age of Obama.

Of course you know what this will call for: Another government program to combat hunger.
Doctors at a major Boston hospital report they are seeing more hungry and dangerously thin young children in the emergency room than at any time in more than a decade of surveying families.

Many families are unable to afford enough healthy food to feed their children, say the Boston Medical Center doctors. The resulting chronic hunger threatens to leave scores of infants and toddlers with lasting learning and developmental problems.

Before the economy soured in 2007, 12 percent of youngsters age 3 and under whose families were randomly surveyed in the hospital’s emergency department were significantly underweight. In 2010, that percentage jumped to 18 percent, and the tide does not appear to be abating, said Dr. Megan Sandel, an associate professor of pediatrics and public health at BMC.

“Food is costing more, and dollars don’t stretch as far,’’ Sandel said. “It’s hard to maintain a diet that is healthy.’’
Of course we shouldn't take the parents to task here. That would be judgmental.

THESE ARE OBAMAS OWN WORDS.. saying “Bring it on”   To his supporters.
Oboma ~ Demands Saying  “Get ready for hand-to-hand combat with your fellow Americans”

– Obama has ALSO DECLARED to his  Supporters

“I want all Americans to get in each others faces!–
Obama demands  !

“You bring a knife to a fight pal, we’ll bring a gun” –

 Obama Cant wait to get everybody involved in some kind OF CONFRONTATION of some sort....


Obama has ALSO DECLARED "Republicans are our enemies"-

 ** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
