Sorry, it's not a conspiracy.
If you are obese, than you are unhealthy. Period.
I don't think it should be a qualification for President, other than how will you encourage a nation of healthy eaters if you yourself are not
How can you start helping America get off the sugar dealer and on to proper consumption and excercise if you yourself do you expouse those beliefs?
Please read in the voice of Daleks: "You-must-not-be-unhealthy-unhealthy-is-illegal-must-kill-all-unhealthy..."
You know what, if people are really unhealthy and die from their lifestyle then that is their right. If they don't die from it...good. I do not mind
fat people, smokers, pot heads and I also don't mind sports people who break their legs, backs, pull ligaments etc. I don't even mind people who get
treated after a car accident, having taken too many painkillers or fall over when putting their trousers on; and the list goes on.
And before anyone asks, no I don't mind paying for their treatment through taxes. After all, they are paying taxes too, Some more than others
[smokers-thank you]. That is what the system is there for. In a way most things that need treatment are in one way or another self inflicted anyway
[see examples above].
We are some specks on a fast rotating rock somewhere in space. Who actually cares what each individual speck does?
Where will this obsession about HAVING TO BE HEALTHY come from?
They say in the papers that high blood pressure is the biggest killer...eh "hello", in the end something that goes wrong will kill us. We will all
die of something - fact.
Where will this obsession stop once everyone is slim, trim and fit? They will then come for the next freedom. Maybe it will be illegal to worry, get
angry or laugh too much because lets face it, they raise your heart rate.
Maybe walking in the woods will be illegal because the path is uneven.
Do not laugh at these examples because they are just as viable as telling someone how much they can and can't eat.
I had absolutely enough of being forced to behave like a vegan, health-mad, goody-two-shoes idiot. I was born free, free to do, eat, drink and smoke
whatever I feel makes me happy. I don't want to live until 80 if all I am allowed to do is eat wild rice and drink green tea.
Sod that and good luck to all fatties, smokers and all the others. Don't let the fanatic sheeple bring you down!
