Obama Picking His Nose full

(CNSNews.com) – Under the broad banner of “health,” the federal government not only is telling Americans what to eat, it’s also telling us to make our homes safer.

This week, the Obama administration released a “bold new vision for addressing the nation’s health and economic burdens caused by preventable hazards associated with the home.”

The project has a name: “Advancing Healthy Housing: A Strategy for Action.”

“People in the United States spend about 70% of their time in a home,” theĀ announcement said.

“Currently, millions of U.S. homes have moderate to severe physical housing problems, including dilapidated structure; roofing problems; heating, plumbing, and electrical deficiencies; water leaks and intrusion; pests; damaged paint; and high radon gas levels. These conditions are associated with a wide range of health issues, including unintentional injuries, respiratory illnesses like asthma and radon-induced lung cancer, lead poisoning, result in lost school days for children, as well as lost productivity in the labor force.”

According to the Obama administration, the health and economic burdens from preventable hazards associated with both subsidized and privately owned homes cost billions of dollars.

    If obama spent “70% of [his] time” at home, we could cut the deficit in half.

    I suppose that this initiative will require tens of thousands of federal “Healty Home Inspectors” that will come in your home and grade you, much like food establishments. Your grade will determine you Obamacare rates. Of course they will start a voluntary inspections, but if you refuse, you automatically recieve a “Fairness” penalty. Next comes mandatory inspections (approved by the new Obama SCOTUS)….

    oh, and they will check for guns too…I wonder what the penalty for gun ownership will be?

    If you don’t permit an annual Federal House Inspection, they will kill you and your family and then house one dozen Illegal Immigrants in your home.

    However, death will not relieve you of the financial responsibility for all taxes and expenses.

    “and opportunities exist for intervention programs that would not only reduce health impacts on
    occupants, but the economic burden as well, resulting in a positive return on investment.”

    That statement right there says it all. How the Hell can anybody, even a liberal moron, read that and not understand that because of Obamacare, the Federal Govt will now regulate and control absolutely every single aspect of our lives? because everything we do has the potential to affect the cost of our healhcare!!! I just finished reading “Brave New World” for the first time. It’s not as “scary” as 1984, but it is more frightening, because the notion of “Benevolent Tyranny” is already widely accepted by these fools!!!

    Healthy Housing

    A home where you don’t run the risk of being hit by a stray bullet fired by a gang of feral black males whose minds have been de-civilized by three generations of welfare dependency culture .. as is the case in much of Obama’s hometown of Chicago

    Yeah, because most of we unenlightened schlubs out here live in houses that look like an episode of Hoarders.

    So as soon as they get that pesky Second Amendment out of the way they’re going after the Forth Amendment or are they going to use this as an excuse to enter your home and look for firearms?

    You will fix up your homes, pay for it through payroll taxes, and then turn them over to my people.

    Why mince words Bary when it could be saidwith less?

    70% of their time in their home? What the heck??!? Lets see: 168 hours in a week, 45-50 hours bare minimum at work alone. Not to mention commuting, shopping, kids’ activities, appointments, etc. Less than 50% would be more within farting distance of reality.

    Something tells me that Barry is only worried about pandering to people who DO spend 70% of their time at home, the chronically unemployed.

    I hope the Hurricane Sandy victims, still living in tent shelters, are paying attention.

    e.g. Rule #1
    “Establish healthy homes recommendations (homes should be dry, clean, pest-free, safe, contaminant-free, well-ventilated, and well-maintained and thermally controlled)”
    Have you GOT that, tent-dwellers?

    The EPA…is there anything they CAN’T do?
