I think convenience plays a large role in that "bad diet" too.


Yeah, probably. It's definitely quicker and easier to go through the drive through than make a meal from scratch. I was just pointing out it's not really the cheapest route.

I am simply AWED by the inhumane stupidity of Glen!!!

So now he wants to make being fat a capital offence requiring death sentence? What next? The skinny ones? Since we are down this road, why not those who are sick as well? They had been irresponsible, for being sick, not taking care of themselves, working under the sun and rain.

Let's go the whole hog. Let's make those with big eyes a capital crime too if they do not go tor surgery. Make that for small eyes as well. Big nose, flat nose, sharp nose, hey, everything can be a capital offense. Go down below the belt as well.

I refuse to believe this nutcase called Glen is a tool of TPTB. But comparing their ineptness, utter stupidity and cunningness, I had no choice but to come to the belief that both are the same. Clowns are indeed getting plenty of airplay lately...sigh...

He's kinda plump himself ... all that raw cookie dough that he says he likes to eat.

The republicans, the democrats and now Glenn Beck (semi-libertarian
) make statements like this.

If someone smokes and they get lung cancer, we shouldn't have to pay for it.
If someone has sex and gets pregnant, we shouldn't have to pay for the abortion.
If someone is fat due to poor lifestyle choices and has a heart attack, we shouldn't pay for it.
If someone catches HIV due to poor lifestyle choices we shouldn't have to pay for it.
Yada yada yada

They are right. But at the same time, we really have no choice but to pay for it.
If we have panels to decide who gets the healthcare that is going to have to be rationed
then we are all in for a whole lotta' trouble ... and death. None of us will pass inspection.

I was just wondering, how many non-family people does it take to have an individual committed to a mental institution because if there were ever a case for it, Glenn Beck is it.

This is what I don't really understand about this whole religious conservative movement that Glenn seems to encompass. For religious believers, they sure seem to hate a lot. They hate muslims, they hate liberals, they hate progressives, they hate Barack Obama, they hate illegal immigrants, now they hate the fat?

Isn't religion about spreading the word of love and loving ones brother and treating all equally? Maybe if Glenn was preaching a positive message I could have a little more time for him, but all he is doing is creating divisions and fooling the American public.

On a side note Michelle Obama, suggested kids replace fries with a healthy alternative. Thats a good thing right? You have a lot of fat kids in America, which could be seen as child abuse as it ruins their health and shortens their lives.

Making a suggestion to eat more healthily is a good thing, McDonalds arn't going to tell you how to eat a healthy diet, Unless you want the free market to be providing you with health advice.

Actually he's freak'n brilliant. In just a few short years he went from down and out drunk in a gutter - to be one of the most influential and best paid folks in the country. He's found his niche in life. He's making his $$ and not living off the gov't. He pays taxes. He gets to influence people to think like him AND he gets paid for it. That's freak'n brilliant.

Rootboy Slim and The Sex Change Band:
"Dare to be fat, Fat is where it's at!"

-------------

End note:

It could be argued that fat people are SURVIVALISTS!
Those with extra pounds have already stashed considerable, pre-digested, 'survival' rations in case the end of the world overtakes us!

Fat people might be amongst the last ones standing after the apocalypse

Wasn't Beck just in surgery last year for some sort of major heart surgery or something related to his years of excessive drinking?

Who does he think he is, harping on about fat people. He's FAR from a specimen of perfect health himself.

If he thinks we should let fat people die (I don't), then what about others who bring their health issues upon themselves, like ALCOHOLICS.

I am healthy (finally) after dealing with weight issues all my life, and losing the weight was both one of the hardest and easiest things I've had to do.

My theory of Quantum Weight Loss (two states at the same time) is this: It's very hard to do, as it takes a lot of effort, but it's also easy to do all at the same time, because you see results almost immediately, especially if you are very heavy and make simple changes and stick to them.

I struggled with weight gain for 20 years, and have now lost nearly 50 lbs in 5 months. I even had my water guy mention to me this morning "do you have a new girlfriend - what's with all the weight loss?" when I filled up my water bottles. EVERYONE that knows me have started a pool to bet on which date I will have lost 100 lbs total - it's pretty funny, and VERY supportive. The serious money is on dates around Easter 2011. It's not IF I lose 100 lbs, but WHEN.

Fat people need support, not ridicule. With support, anything is possible.

Beck was on O'Reilly Factor AGAIN yesterday denying that he's a leader of the Tea Party movement. I was just flipping through the channels and caught him on halfway through the interview, thought it would be good for a laugh.

It seems as though he STILL can't accept himself for who he is, and for what his ideas and shows generate.

Don't ask WHY I have FOX NEWS on cable. lol. I work for the local cable company and get EVERYTHING in the cable lineup in a staff deal. I would NEVER pay EXTRA for FOX !

The REALLY scary version of where events will go is PALIN / BECK 2012. The very scary version is that they have enough name brand recognition and support from the looney far right that they would probably get elected (after all, American elections are really all about popularity contests and brand name recognition, never about issues), then when Palin quits halfway through her first term, the USA will end up with PRESIDENT BECK.

I can see him now doing his State of the Union speech with his chalkboard.

Beck is making the point that if we have socialized healthcare, the government assumes the power to tell us what to eat.

Since everyone pays for fatties under a socialist system, the government will justify the power necessary to make them "un-fat".

Obesity will no longer be a personal problem, it will be a community problem, since we all pay for it.

I shudder to think what government would do in order to cut obesity rates.


Yeah! such draconian measures like cutting corn subsidies that contribute to a national epidemic of fat, unhealthy people is a Liberal plot to destroy the midwest?

We have had subsidized corn in this country since the dawn of man.

Liberals are incapable of cutting any government subsidy, so I highly doubt those are going to go away anytime soon.

That said, cutting corn subsidies is one of the few good things that might come from such government actions to reduce obesity rates. Since the government owns your body, it has the right to tell you what you may or may not put into your body. From this, we can see all manner of tasty treats being banned or taxed into oblivion.

We already see examples of soda and candy taxes springing up in localities. If the government nationalizes healthcare, we can expect such sin taxes to explode exponentially and drive out every food product that isn't cornmeal mush.

And red meat? - forget about it. Unless you are a plutocrat, that product is sure to be priced well out of your plebeian income levels.

The Dawn of Man? No. Mainly since WW2, but with major increases in just the past few decades.

Well, they are all supported by every "conservative" in office in the midwest.

Your good with the hubris and off-topic speculation. Not so good with facts on the topic.

I don't think Beck was advocating death panels, quite the opposite, he was advocating darwinism, survival of the fittest or in this case natural death to the un-fittest. I couldn't agree more honestly, there is NO REASON for someone to wheigh in excess of 300lbs. I was a healthy 225 until i started taking medicine that caused me to gain 40lbs, I don't over eat, however the medicine just keeps me heavy. I need the medicine for a normal functioning life, and I have tried alternative medicines to no avail. the only other medicine that helps, well, it's illegal. I suffer from a server form of Bi-polar disorder known as Schizo-effective. It's when you go manic and hallucinate and become grandious and delusional. I have a 170 IQ and a nervous breakdown brought on my condition from over work (85 hour work weeks) at the age of 19. I'm now 25 trying to get back into the work force to no avail, I can't even get a call back from Mc Donalds, not that I would particularly like to work there, but I'm just saying I have applied to 60+ places a month, and every time I get an interview (I've had 3) they find out I'm on disability, they find another candidate to take the position even though I am over qualified for the one at hand. The world is just a disgusting place nowadays and individual problems should not be a burden on the public at large.
