    Default Mississippi wants to ban obese people from dining out!

    Mississippi bill would ban obese from eating out - That's Fit

    I found this fairly disturbing, and i think a lot of restaurants would lose quite a bit of business. I know this bill would most likely NEVER pass, but i was wondering what other people's views on this would be?

    It is insanity.

    Maybe these same people will want to place BMI on a person's store "club card" and prevent them from being able to buy a lot of food too.

    What's next? making the doors on restaurants only so wide so only extremely thin people can't get in?

    The amount of stupidity in the world never ceases to amaze me

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    It's a little ironic that I was just logging on here to post about a stupid law that Mississippi already has (no doubt just one of many).

    Apparently, it's illegal to sell sex toys in the state. I mean, jeepers, what if someone bought something like this, and went home and used it? Possibly even with another consenting adult! (gasp!) It's a good thing that WLBT-3 is "on your side", keeping the citizens safe from threats like this.

    I especially like the part about state law prohibiting the sale of "such 3-dimensional devices." Apparently, 2-dimensional and 4-dimensional devices are just fine.

    So it wouldn't entirely surprise me if they actually passed this lame obesity law. Maybe they're uncomfortable with how these people emphasize the three dimensions?

    Mississippi already has a stigma in the U.S. for having a poor educational system. Are they embracing this image, and trying to show us that their government values stupidity? Hey, I'm convinced.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    From the bill itself and the article, I think the lawmaker was just trying to make a point. He probably knows the bill would be controversial and he wants people talking about health, obesity, and making smart choices.

    It reminds me of the man who sued a fast food restaurant for getting him addicted to the food and causing him to become obese with all the related issues of obesity.

    Unlike the sex toys in Mississippi, food and especially eating fried and otherwise fattening Southern comfort food is not only accepted but embraced and encouraged. It's part of the culture. So I don't ever see a ban on 'obese people eating' in any way, shape, or form ever passing in the South.

    Obese people shouldn't be stopped going to restaurants.

    They should be shot.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    a new study came out in Holland that showed that the premise that obesity is costing the society for the health care needed to treat related illnesses such as diabetes, is false. the actual costs of taking care of "healthly" people over a longer timespan (assuming that obesity leads to early death) exceed the costs of taking care of the obese during their shorter life span.

    maybe we should promote obesity to reduce costs. maybe we should increase tax rates on healthy people: "the lifespan tax". call it a tax surge.
