“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

LONDON (Reuters) - A trend for children and adolescents to stay up later and sleep less may be linked to rising levels of obesity, according to a review of existing research published on Thursday.

Did anyone consider the possibility that these fatties might need some exercise, proper nutrition, and a modicum of discipline from parents who allow unhealthy behavior of the kids?

Oh, I'm sorry...my bad. I forgot we lived in a consequence-free society where any self-destructive behavior can be excused as a medical condition and personal failures are always the fault of others.

See article below on the consequence free behavior issue. As far as self destructive behavior goes, well OJ performing in the Police Squad movies comes to mind. Sorry to have tied to pathetic story lines together, but it seemed like the thing to do.
