This is the issue, though, IH. People ask you a direct question, and you post someone else's thoughts as your answer. I don't think you intend to, but it comes across as evasive and indifferent towards others (now granted, you are not the only one guilty of this by far).

In a discussion, it promotes a healthier exchange of ideas if the participants are willing to take the time to formulate and share their own thoughts on the matter, particularly in response to questions asked of them, rather than simply copying in someone else's thoughts on the general subject.

A link is not an answer. I want an answer from you.

What, do you want me to make a list of all the questions I've asked that you've dodged? Christ.

You've never given a legitimate response to anything that's been posted in your direction. It's frustrating.

I don't think I did ask him anything on this subject.

I certainly don't think it's harassment to point out the inherent flaws of his posting style in hopes that he'll start conversing on the actual topics at hand instead of drive-by linking to some ass-backwards blog post.

I have questions for you in a number of other threads. Start with the "conservative case for gay marriage" thread. Ideally, answer Diemen's question in that thread, post number 494 on page 33. Or mine, post 496 on the next page.

Can you remember one of your questions?

I will try to respond tonight.

First Lady Encouraging Breastfeeding in Battle on Childhood Obesity

by Althea Fung
Tuesday, February 15, 2011 | 8:51 a.m.

First Lady Michelle Obama will highlight breastfeeding as a way to reduce childhood obesity in her "Let’s Move!" campaign, Politics Daily reports.

Obama will not directly ask mothers to breastfeed, but will encourage those who choose to, her communications director said, citing the sensitive nature of the issue. Let’s Move executive director Robin Schepper told Politics Daily that Obama wants to make breastfeeding easier for mothers to do outside the home.

A study published in the journal Pediatrics found babies who were breastfed for the first four to six months of their life were less likely to be overweight or obese than children who were formula fed and began eating solid foods before their fourth month.

In a push to get more women to breastfeed, the administration has also advocated for more feeding-friendly offices and the Internal Revenue Service last week announced it will offer a tax break on purchases of breast pumps and other nursing supplies. As part of the landmark health care reform bill the president signed into law in March, certain employers are required to give nursing mothers a break and a place to pump milk for the first year of the baby’s life.

The first lady is also encouraging hospitals to provide better care for infant feeding as part of the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund's "Baby Friendly" initiative.


In these times of budget cuts
Obama wants to include new tax cuts for breast feeding.

Washington (CNN) - Rep. Michele Bachmann, a potential Republican presidential candidate, is taking issue with Michelle Obama over the first lady's recent promotion of breast-feeding.

Speaking to conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham Tuesday, the Minnesota Republican said Obama's efforts to promote breast-feeding and the IRS's announcement that nursing supplies that aide in the practice can be deducted from tax returns amounts to a "new definition [of] the nanny state."

"This is very consistent with where the hard left is coming from," Bachmann told Ingraham. "For them, government is the answer to every problem."

"I've given birth to five babies and I breast fed every single one of these babies," she added. "To think that government has to go out and buy my breast pump for my babies? You wanna talk about the nanny state, I think you just got a new definition."

The comments come on the heels of Obama's recent contention that breast-feeding can play a key role in reducing childhood obesity.

"We also want to focus on the important touch points in a child's life. And what we're learning now is that early intervention is key. Breastfeeding. Kids who are breastfed longer have a lower tendency to be obese," Obama told a group of reporters last week, according to Politics Daily.

"Breastfeeding is a very personal choice for every woman," Kristina Schake, a spokeswoman for Obama, later said. "We are trying to make it easier for those who choose to do it."

So, wait, I'm confused-she says she's breast-fed her babies and yet she still objects to Mrs. Obama promoting that very activity? Huh? Am I understanding that right?
