Note to the first lady: The kids want their Funyuns back.

Some nutritionists and parents are huge backers of Michelle Obama for her three-year crusade against childhood obesity. She has pushed hard to get kids to cut back on sugars and trans fats and exercise more. But some of the kids who have had their Salisbury steaks replaced with asparagus have some less kind things to say about her.

Tiffany Bruce of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania had saved up for months to buy a life-size Barack Obama statue for her front porch -- and then someone stole it.

The loss of the statue, which cost a whopping $1,249, sent Bruce to the hospital, WNEP reports.

"I just wanted to wait until I got it on sale, so I started buying my furniture before I purchased the statue, but I had to have it," said Bruce. "I peeked my head out the door and Obama's gone and I kind of went into a panic. I couldn't breathe, and I had to go to the hospital."


The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratification from Congress.

In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summit meeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world's largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.

To sidestep that requirement, President Obama's climate negotiators are devising what they call a "politically binding" deal that would "name and shame" countries into cutting their emissions.

But while the world knows of the highly publicized situation involving 18-year-old Mr. Brown, whose Aug. 9 death in Ferguson, Missouri touched off violence, protests and an angry national debate, most people outside Utah have never heard of 20-year-old Mr. Taylor.

A former UK soldier has a sex change and becomes a muslim. I highlight this to show that without the environment of safety, most liberal ideas would not come to light. You think this would be accepted in Iran or Saudi or any other truly muslim nation? If he/she even attempts to go to an environment where Islam rules, he/she will be killed. Plain and simple. So one has to wonder why someone would embrace an ideology that hates the individual? Two reasons: 1. Their environment lets them and they are stupid.
