New benchmark for batshit crazy.....

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Monday that youth violence is a “chronic health issue” that can lead to asthma, obesity, or depression for "the youth who are involved," although she did not make clear whether she was speaking solely about the victims of youth violence or the perpetrators or both.

“But it's important to remember--you just heard from the law enforcement side of this--it’s important to remember that the costs of violence go beyond deaths or injuries or tolls on families and communities,” Sebelius said at a Department of Justice conference Monday on youth violence. “Violence is also a chronic health issue.”

“It leads to asthma, it leads to obesity or depression among the youth who are involved,” Sebelius said at the event in Washington, D.C.

  1. Well, if she defines it as a health issue, then it's in her Bailiwick. That means she can arm all her departmental minions to deal with the "root causes" like...oh, I don't know...people who aren't fascists like her.
    No, not crazy...totalitarian and evil, but not crazy.

  2. My findings, financed by a million dollar government grant, are as follows:
    Violence does NOT bring obesity; dead thugs eat less and for armed citizens, walking back and forth at the target range burns calories.
    It does not bring depression. Dead criminals are not depressed. Liberal democrat fascist bastards may struggle with depression but this could be remedied if they would develop the practice of rinsing out their mouths with a 12 gauge.
