The LuLac Edition #3155, February 27th, 2016

Friday Donald Trump had a big announcement at a news conference. Trump got the endorsement of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. People in the Trump camp are excited because in a way it gives his run a tad bit of gravitas. To date there were very few elected officials to back him. But is the Christie imprimatur a big help? Here's my take:
1. Just what part of Christie's huge Presidential vote totals will help propel Trump to the nomination?
2. How will the blustery Governor of Joizee with the bum credit ratings give Trump anymore than what he has to offer in the issues department? 
3. Like Richard Gere in "An Officer and A Gentleman", Christie has "Nowhere To Go" and Trump seems to be his only option for any type of relevance.
Christie's endorsement comes on the heels of Marco Rubio growing a set in the Thursday night debate against Trump. Christie camped out in New Hampshire in late '15 and was rising in the polls until the Rubio campaign hit him hard. This is Christie's payback.
There will be two groups thrilled with this development, Bullies and loudmouths from New York and New Jersey. Keep that bridge open so they can have easy access to and fro. 
But these two need a campaign song, how about yabba dabba doo????

Cheryl Tiegs. (Photo: Zimbo).
That TV idiot, Dr. Oz landed in the middle of a Face book fury between former super model Cheryl TIegs who said the Sports Illustrated plus size model Ashley Graham did not promote a healthy body life style. Like so many lemming like Americans Tiegs got her cue from Dr. Oz who said that by putting Graham on the cover of SI, the magazine was promoting an "unhealthy" life style for women. Yet that body type represents 67% of American woman. Tiegs who has been an advocate for older women really missed the mark on this. She has since apologized to Graham for her comments and that's a good thing. But it doesn't change the fact that millions of Americans follow Dr. Oz and eat up his dictates like the sermon from the mount. Tiegs just proved that even a famous person buys into this guy's act. And that should just stop.

"Yet that body type represents 67% of American woman"
With an adult obesity rate that is putting a strain on the US healthcare system that is only going to increase, both Tieges and Oz are correct.
Glorifying being fat, just as glorifying ultra thin, is the wrong message.
But don't worry; the increases in diabetes, cancer, heart disease stroke, all which can be mitigated with lifestyle choices, will be funded by everyone with national healthcare. Because nothing says national identity like taking care of those unwilling to care for themselves.
