Taking Food From Babies

Breastfeeding scares the piss out of Pumpkin!  Who knew?

click through for a better op-ed (yes!) from the NYT

World health officials were stunned when the US balked at as innocuous a resolution as you can imagine: to encourage women around the world to breastfeed their babies.  The US delegation threatened Ecuador (Ecuador!) with trade repercussions if they did not agree to weaken key provisions.

I can think of a few reasons why Pumpkin's minions would take this line:

  • People of low and modest incomes all over the world would have a healthier start to their lives.  As we can see from the Obamacare battles, the last thing Pumpkin wants is for anyone other than rich white men to have good health.  Everyone who is not one of those (or a dupe thereof) is coming for him eventually.
  • Women's breasts should only serve their primary purpose (to Pumpkin) of looking sexy for him.  Feeding babies is not sexy.  QED.
  • The rich white men who own Pumpkin also own stock in companies that make inferior fake breastmilk, also known as baby formula.  Pumpkin must do anything possible to prevent them from losing profits.  Breastmilk is free, all the other products are not.

Just when you can't believe the Pumpkin krew can get any more evil, they say, "hold my beer!"
