I don't question Christie's brain, but the fact is that he is morbidly obese. The health problems associated with this will shorten his life.
That's a medical fact. Statistically, he's flirting with death. Diabetes, heart issues, circulatory issues are all in his future, and he'll never
see the average lifespan of 78.
Although once in awhile obesity is the result of a glandular malfunction, the fact is that usually it's a matter of choice and diet. it's
preventable. And yes, some people are more prone to "get fat" than others. That doesn't mean it's not preventable. Eat less and you'll get
The real issue here is that when we talk about "equality" and "civil rights," the term was originally meant to be used for traits over which you
have no control. Ethnicity is obvious as is one's sex. You personally have no control over that. Why should you be discriminated against if you are
one race or another?
And so then we extended that to such things as religion or national origin. If you are a member of a certain religion, is that your fault? Didn't you
get born into it? Is a Jew responsible for being a Jew? Is a Catholic responsible for being born into a Catholic family? Isn't that kind of an ethnic
identity? The same for an Irishman. These groups have been discriminated against in the past. We now find this illegal.
Now we get into matters of choice. Of course the BIG one is homosexuality. It is politically correct to insist that homsexuals are born that way, but
this is far from scientifically proven and there is a VAST amount of evidence that social pressures contribute to this issue or even cause it--it's
just that you can't SAY that these days without risking your job. It's kind of like Global Warming. That it is caused by humans is very much open to
question, but try getting a grant to study the opposite. It won't happen because the establishment has made up its mind and ignores contrary
evidence. Even though Al Gore got his graph backwards: Global warming causes an outflux of CO2 a thousand years later, not the opposite. people, even
here, have drunk the Kool Aid on this issue. They won't listen.
Then we have the transgender "community." Amazing. Medical science has advanced so far that if you want to, you can carve off your manly parts and
call yourself a woman, or stitch on an extra piece on and call yourself a man. Inject yourself with some hormones and voila! new sex! Of course,
genetically you syill have the X chromosome, or don't, but technology allows you to pretend you are something you are not, and to say "that's kind
of strange" invites charges of discrimination.
Take this a bit further. There's no reason to stop with minor surgery. Think of the future when medical science can turn you into anything you want.
Will the manimals on the island of Dr. Moreau scream "discrimination"?
So now here's the claim that there's a "conspiracy" against the fat. A conspiracy? Really? More like the fat have a conspiracy against the rest of
