Jennifer Livingston: Is Anyone Else Disturbed By Her “Support”?

Author: Kelley Filice Jensen

TV anchor Jennifer Livingston made quite a stir when she attacked a viewer who dared email her requesting that she examine her health, lose weight, and use her built in pulpit to inspire her community to do the same.  According to Jennifer, and legions of supporters, this made the man a bully, a meanie, an uncaring cad, you name it.  While, arguably, he is the winner of poorest word choice in recent memory, many of us are not buying that he is the anti-Christ.  Perhaps he could have said something like, “Jennifer, you are so beautiful, talented and a terrific pillar of this community.  I think that you have the potential to really help people lose weight and get healthy.  I personally struggled with obesity as a child, and I know that watching you lose weight would have inspired me to do the same.  Losing weight is very hard, but you have what it takes to lose it and motivate the community that adores you so much.”

Bloomberg’s Ban on Soda: One lump or two?

Author: Kelley Filice Jensen

One lump or two?  That is what our Grandma’s said when they poured tea and coffee.  The days of one or two lumps of sugar are long gone.  Now it is 20 or 30 lumps, more like one CUP or two.  And we want it, we need it, we deserve it.  It is our constitutional right to drink a liter of soda.  It is not the government’s role to tell us what to put into our bodies, they should stay out of it.  Foot stomp.  Hold breath.  Turn blue.  Petulant child.  Petulant OBESE child whose foot stomp has caused the floor to quake.
