So do smokers, alchoholics, etc. Where's the battlecry to stop them?

Lets put a tax on red meat and fried chicken too...they clog arteries and damage the heart..... cause heat disease.....a burden on the medical field....plenty of thin people have heart attacks due to life style, you people are just amazing. Many of you would never say such things about race creed or color.....but boy is there some other prejudices going on.

You would be discriminating someone by taxing them for being themselves, how do you discern between somebody who is overweight and somebody who is just big? are you gonna F*ck*n have a stamp on their forhead? My sister is a big girl, she doesn't eat junk food, doesnt eat meat, and works out 3times a week. You look at her and might think she's fat , but she's not. Who cares if someone eats alot, that should between the person and their food.
Are you telling me how to live my life or how to spend money? so waht if i get so huge and shorten my life span , will it affect you? wouldn't it not affect you more if everybody lived to be 100?
I swear , while we are at it, lets tax everything or better yet require a freaken license to buy junkfood, ciggarettes and alcohol! you go to your doctor and if he thinks your healthy enough, you can apply for this license and pay hundreds a year for it. better yet lets just put a Huge Tax on Sugar! sorry for the rant , but forcing people to eat a certain way? come on , let people choose how to live their lives, let them be big or small, in shape or out of shape.
Thats right Try and Wrestle this Twizzler from my MOuth

I don't understand why come down on "large" people, it's none of our business what they look like.
If you don't like the way they look, then turn your head, I say.
Who cares if someone is overweight
well they just keep bitching and bitching about it and they cant stop and say hey i need to do something about this.
