Michelle Obama, Hypnatremia, Adult Diapers,
and Other Hydration-Related Issues

American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/15/2013 9:24:56 AM

For America´s aging population, even the mention of water makes a large number of Baby Boomers sprint toward the nearest restroom. Now to compound the problem, we have first lady Michelle Obama hawking increased water consumption.(snip) It used to be when a person felt hungry, they ate, and when their God-given internal water gauge indicated they were running low, they drank. That´s the old way. Now we have Michelle Obama spending her time "nudging" us away from the soda aisle toward the water fountain.

Perhaps her next "Let´s Move" campaign will be for Depends - launched from Cockysville, MD.

If one drnks a great deal of water, one can suffer from hyponatremia- low sodium in the blood stream. If one drinks very little water, one suffers from hypernatremia.

I´ll give Moochelle a pass on this because drinking more water is important, especially in the elderly. It prevents clots,strokes and bladder infections. They need to be reminded. The younger generation still have built in reminders that they better drink up.

The problem with Moochelle is that no one thinks she really gives a darn one way or the other. These food and drnk issues are just manufactured to keep her out there.

She comes across as someone who is profoundly, mentally "challenged" - her circus handlers are just trying to give her something to do & make her feel important. I know someone just like this who is a busybody & who desperately wants to seem wise. She also dispenses such nonsensical advice about the patently obvious.

Water is very important to seniors health, most of us tend not to drink it and get dehydrated. I drink a 8oz glass upon arising, and several during the day, at night before laying down I drink another 6-8 oz`s. I read an article a few years back (sorry I forget the name of the article)that it keeps you from having a heart attack or stroke, also, I boil water from the tap because I do not trust bottled water.
I would rather get up a couple of times a night than risk having a heart attack or stroke.

Now that Ann Landers and Dear Abby are dead maybe the moose could just have her own advice column. We could all send her very serious but bogus letters asking for her expert advice. Maybe it would keep her busy and out of our real lives. What a stupid busybody she is. Does she really think we listen to her? She has noting to fear. With the way her husband is ruining the economy we will only be able to afford to eat kibble and drink water by the time he is done destroying us. Isn´t that what they want?

Proper hydration is important... and this does seem like busywork for a FLOTUS to seize on as her next "issue" or "platform" (as if she were competing to be Miss USA... or in this case, Mrs. America).

I had to show my dad how to "pre-hydrate" before going to his "Bounce Back" treadmill
session (unfortunately they tried to make him drink water while walking on a treadmill and then would tell him "tell us if you feel anything in your chest area" which was not a
good plan).

I got that straightened out, based on years of my hydrating after realizing I was often
dehydrated. Plus I worked for years for a nutrition M.D. and was up on these issues.

"Bounce Back" also had a dumb nutritionist who gave a guest lecture and
announced that "seafood isn´t good for you" and then "I have to go now."

What a moron that guy was... and just got a Ph.D. allegedly at U. Florida, Gainesville.
His complaint was that "seafood contains cholesterol" ... the seniors were all left
in confusion, saying, "But wait, we´ve been told to eat more seafood..."

This numbskull trainer turned to my dad and said, "Isn´t he good?" And I said, "No, he´s
wrong, and he´s a moron who confused all these seniors with his nutty advice."
She was dumbfounded, but I straightened my dad out on that one.

My dad also had a stupid doctor who told him that "HDL is the bad cholesterol" and I had
to straighten that one out ("Get a new doctor") and he had a doctor who botched
a treadmill stress test, too.
("Get a new doctor.")

I eventually had to fire a cardiology group, too, in the hospital.
We got someone much better.

Many physicians are negligent, incompetent, dishonest, and dangerous.
Moochelle the Cookie Wookiee...

should fit right in with that crowd... s/o

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines.

They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me.

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
