Companies are penalized by the government if their male employees over a certain age have a waist of 33.6 inches or greater.

Socialism is great, huh?

Next thing you know, someone's gonna try and outlaw trans fats right here in America.

That day is coming.

Who needs personal responsibility when the government can handle it for you?

It's not just the government, it's also the media pushing agendas that attempt to disgrace people. They've got a non-smoking campaign down here that makes me sick - and I don't smoke and don't like it. It just pisses me off that they try to belittle people or make them look like idiots for exercising their right to make choices, good and bad. I also don't get why they can be so selective. Why not go after alcohol like the puritanical forces did in the 1920s? Maybe because they enjoy alcohol and just want to stop people from using something they don't like? How are they any different from religious zealots that feel they can shove their religion down people's throats?

Hasn't New York city already began a war on trans fats? Thought I read that somewhere.

I agree for the most part. I do not smoke either but I cannot stand the smoking ban here in Ohio. It is complete BS.

Hey I don't like going to the grocery store and dealing with people who stink, so can we ban people with BO from frequenting the places I go to?

Damn. I didn't know that. What's next? No more pie and ice cream on sale in the city?

Pretty soon people will only be allowed to eat broccoli and celery sticks.

Hahahaha.

“I used that word because that’s what fat people are. They’re fat. They’re not large; they’re not stout, chunky, hefty, or plump. And they’re not big-boned. Dinosaurs are big-boned. These people are not necessarily obese, either. Obese is a medical term. And they’re not overweight. Overweight implies there is some correct weight. There is no correct weight. Heavy is also a misleading term. An aircraft carrier is heavy; it’s not fat. Only people are fat, and that’s what fat people are. They’re fat. I offer no apologies for this. It is not intended as a criticism or insult. It is simply descriptive language. I don’t like euphemisms. Euphemisms are a form of lying. Fat people are not gravitationally disadvantaged. They’re fat. I prefer seeing things the way they are, not the way some people wish they were...”
