    Turkey: Governor restricts lift use to fight obesity

    http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-30656166

    Dursun Ali Sahin, governor of the western province of Edirne, wants people to take the stairs as part of a campaign against obesity, the Daily Sabah website reports. The only buildings exempt from the ban will be hospitals and nursing homes, but people who can’t take the stairs for medical reasons will also be excused, the website reports. “Taking the stairs instead of elevators can add an extra day to your life,” says Mr Sahin, adding that he intends to make the ban apply to private buildings in the future. “This is a move to promote better health. Moreover, it will help to cut energy costs.” Lift supervisors will be posted in public buildings to make sure the new rules are enforced, Mr Sahin says.

    ELEVATOR SHAMING and Ableism: Why Pro-Stairs Health Campaigns Kind Of Suck

      About time those of us who are elderly or disabled start screaming DISCRIMITATION!!!!

      I am da…m sick and tire of the government and the PC crowd ‘deciding’ what is ‘best’ for me. Helmets, seatbelts, spanking our kids, drugging our children in school without parental permission, no smoking even in our own cars and now elevators?

      ELEVATORS!?!

      The Demographics of Aging
      As late as 1930, America’s older population numbered less than 7 million—only 5.4% of the population.

      Today, one in three Americans is now 50 or older. By 2030 one out of every five people in the U.S. will be 65-plus. One out of every 8 Americans is considered “old” and represent 12.9% of the U.S. population…. —a number expected to swell to 19% of the population by 2030.

      This is the reason for the pro illegal immigrant stance. The US has a population that is aging fast. However the solution is legal immigration and vetting of the immigrants as well as continued employment of those over 45.

        I want to work and planned on doing so however no one will hire if one is over 50.

        • Gail Combs says:

          We also found that out the hard way.

          Worse the US government killed off the independent contractors by changing the rules to ‘Protect Us’ Now Kelly or a twin hires out a contractor for the wage you used to pocket ($60 to $100/hr) and pays you $10 -$30/hour. On top of that you can no longer take deductions like car/milage/office… because you are an ’employee’ In return you get ‘insurance’ that you find never actually reimburses your medical expenses. – Such a great deal. — for Kelly the 2nd largest employer in the USA after the US government.

          Uhhhhhhhhhh, 68 and still working. Cheap labor rate, but it buys my adult beverages and cigars. Plus, it keeps me out of the house and sane.

        • Gail Combs says:

          That is why we have a small business. Pays for my trucks and fuel and that’s about it. Also keeps us active and healthy. We have considered ‘retiring’ and just can’t see doing so.

        • Ernest Bush says:

          I retired from my company at age 66 plus a few months. Today, at 71, I’m busier than I was before retirement. I’m not being reimbursed for what I do, but it keeps my mind fresh and I’m healthier than I was at retirement.

    You don’t suppose the Crispy Cream Christy is trying to garner Texas votes in 2016, do you?

  4. SMS says:

    I don’t mind the government telling me how many calories are in my food. I do mind them telling me what I can and cannot eat. I find that I am much happier if I make the decision on what to eat (or anything else) and either succeed or fail based on my choices as opposed to the government telling me what to do and I fail or succeed based on their choice.

    Since the government can’t make 315,000,000 choices a hundred times a day; I would suggest that the government is incompetent in making choices for me or for anyone else in this country.

    The government just gives it’s citizens more reasons to bitch about the bureaucrats in charge because when they do make decisions those affected by the decisions aren’t going to be happy.

    To the government I say: Stay out of my life as much as possible!

      Except the problem is a government that forces the manufacturer to provide all that data whether they want to or not and we, the consumer, pay for the testing, QC, printing etc. that goes along with that mandate.

    • I do mind the government spending our money on telling us how many calories are in our food.

      I do find some support in musty old documents:

      If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare… they may appoint teachers in every state… The powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America.

      James Madison, U.S. House of Representatives, February 1792

      I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.

      Thomas Jefferson, Letter to William Ludlow, September 6, 1824

      On the other hand, I am sophisticated enough to know that I am a troglodyte and I recognize the other side of the argument:

      What Did the Founding Fathers Eat?

      Wrong question! How did these old white men even know what to eat? They worried about trivial antiquated things like their sacred honor and their rebellion against the King but they did not deal with real life and death questions like getting proper nutritional guidelines from Lord North and his people at Downing Street!

      • Lady Anne Speke North and Queen Charlotte had similarly refrained from issuing nutritional rules for the King’s subjects, an apocryphal instruction of Queen Marie Antoinette of France notwithstanding.

    The Jets and the Giants actually play in NJ, but neither one made it to the playoffs…

    I do recall a movie “Lady in Red”, its sounds much sexier than “CC in Red”

    FWIW if you go to France and use Airbnb, make sure you dont end up on the 5th floor with no elevator. There was a study done in Boston years ago of ladies who lived over 100, most had lived on the 3rd floor of a brownstone..

    Idiot Christie parroting the leftist talking points on global warming climate change and saying we need to “defer to the experts” years after Climategate had exposed these supposed “experts” as ideologically driven leftists that are manipulating the data to dupe the public:
