I have to totally agree with the person from Ireland who commented
on how America is a bunch of fatties. Just take a look around and you
will see how true this is. If the truth hurts certain folk, I don't know how
to console you.
By the way, I am from America and know firsthand of the "fattie"
condition here in the states.
And, I AM NOT being vicious or uncaring or insensitive to people who
have a weight problem due to certain health issues, or are taking
drugs that cause a person to gain a lot of weight, or other reasons
that can't be helped. I have a brother-in-law who was as skinny as
the proverbial stickman, and had a number of heart surgery bi-passes.
The drugs the doctors put him on to keep him alive caused him to
balloon up quite a bit, and quite frankly looks a little plump to say the
least. I believe he took the same drug as Jerry Lewis was on, that
caused him to gain considerable weight. This is not the type of thing
I am referring to.
You can walk down any street in America, in any city or town, in any
county, in any state, and see the same thing time and again. What is
that, you ask? I can see waves upon waves of obese, totally gross
fat slobs that are pathetically overweight.. Go to one of our wonderful
Chinese stocked WalMarts, and it is hard to get around the aisles at
times because of the tons of flesh trying to get from point A to point B.
I know this is a topic about the Brits throwing out 1/3 of their food.
The same thing happens here for the most part. When we raised our
four children, we most likely didn't throw out anything at all. After the
kids all flew the coop, my other half and I, probably DO throw out an
awful lot of food, simply because we may buy too much at times, simply doesn't get eaten, and ends up in the dumpster.
But back to the "fatties" of America. And, back to WalMart if I may. I
don't actually live there, but I am forced to shop there due to the mostly
lower prices, and the fact they have driven out all of the really good
Ma and Pa shops in town, like the SOB's have done all across this country.
Go into any Wally World and you will see these poor fat pigs driving
around the store in battery powered little go-carts. Then they go out to
their cars with the Handicapped emblem in the window or on their license
plate. They then waddle into their usually filthy dirty fat pig cars. Then an
attendant takes the cart back inside for the next whale to squash.
As you can ascertain from my soap box delivery, I have absolutely no
patience or symphathy for these balls of fat everywhere I look. This
country is filled to the brim with fastfood junkies, and lazy fat slobs that have no goal in life but their next super size side of fries. They have
idea what it means to "Eat to live, NOT Live to eat".
I grew up in the states in a time period of the 40's, 50's and the 60's.
If there was a "fat" kid in class, he/she would normally be jeered or
made fun of, sometimes in good spirit, but they were plain and simple
made fun of. People back then took it in stride and didn't go ballistic
and shoot up a mall because someone picked on their poor ass. Geeesh !
Take a look around America and you will see oceans of fat, pathetic,
overfed, can't push away from the dinner table for any reason, globs of
fat butterballs. Insensitive you say? Ok, I admit I may be, but I am sure
tired of dodging all of the lardballs in the aisles that claim they are
"handicapped" because they can't stop stuffing the fork into their mouths.
Go ahead and ban me if you wish. I am only projecting my personal
thoughts on the issue, and if there are those who are butter kegs,
too damn bad. Try to excercise something besides your fat elbow that is
bending the next shovel full of food towards your overly blimpo mouth.
Ok, attack me now. I am waiting for the Whales to say something
