Today I opened the paper to the headline "Obese residents costing county millions!" A story followed by some "expert" citing statistics that everyone over a target BMI were costing the county healthcare system millions of dollars. The solution of course is to institute tax on soda and junk food in order to "repay the county for excessive healthcare costs".
I get pretty sick of this lame thinking about healthcare and especially the "holier than thou" attitutude from the self appointed food police that everyone who is "obese" is unfit, sitting on the couch, eating greasy potato chips and downing liters of soda.
I have been "large" for years and yet I am quite active and "eat right" by most standards (but admittedly, I can slim down). It fire's me up that these latter day "Carrie Nation", prohibitionist, pea-brained, leftists want to attack every last freedom we have.
Be warned. If Obamacare passes, us Clydes will have a target on our back.
P.S. Fit is better than unfit. Strong and lean is much better than strong and fat. Freedom to choose is the American way.
