You must be against reason and the NFL.
If your stupid enough not to think obesity is bad, you got way more problems than just an obese kid.

And spending taxpayer dollars on stupid people and stupid campaigns telling people that fat is bad is not the way to reduce taxes and the deficit.

Whats next, a multi-million dollar campaign telling folks don't run out in front of moving busses?

You must be a liberal.


The way to reuce taxes is by "REDUCING TAXES"

The way to shrink the deficit is to "ELIMINATE BIG GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS"

Reminding people that fat kids aren't good is meaningless.

I think that it would be fair to have Hollis Thomas and Michael Moore do a follow up commercial about the benefits of obesity.

Re: Brees to be in a commercial with Obama

I'm not ever going to suggest that I'm an expert, though I do know more than most on economic policy, healthcare policy and tax policy, but Americans actually DO need to be told that obesity is bad, because nearly 30% of our population is, by recognized guidelines, obese. The NFL requires people to be inactive in order to participate in their entertainmnet. It is doubly harmful in that most games are produced during peak exercise time for children - on weekends, during the day, in the fall when the weather for outdoor exercise is at its optimum.

As an economist, we never forget the axiom that people are generally stupid and forgetful. Danno, double down on that.

If by liberal, you mean conscious of the greater good, like Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt (Teddy and Frank) and Eisenhower, then I accept your epithet, spat out as it was. I'm sure you will use that term to berate Mr. Brees for participating in such a wasteful and self-promoting program with the leader of the free world.

For a list of what "Big Government Programs" our Federal, State and Local governments spend tax dollars on, follow this link

If you can find money that is truly wasteful in there, contact your representative.

Out of nearly 2000 players on NFL rosters, We should be honored as Saints fans that one of 3 selected comes from our team.

Not if it involves a photo op with a Marxist.

Re: Brees to be in a commercial with Obama

Drew gets to be in a commercial with the President of the United States. Let me say that again. The President of the United States. And it's for a good cause. Let's not forget that NFL Play 60 and Keep Gym in School are already in place. This is merely an extension of the NFL's already established program. Regardless of your opinion of Obama, you have to respect this venture.

Then Just admit that you are anti- Obama and not against the Public service announcement.
