@RP_McMurphy I don't like anyone telling me what I can or can't do, but this is targeting people who use gov't money and buy crappy food and don't care of themselves and when they live this lifestyle can who gets to pay for their medical treatments?
What about smokers, drinkers and fornicators?
@watercarrier Kill them all.
@Cheerio - just saying - the 7 deadly sins just got a whole lot deadlier.
Here come the new nazis, the master race must be all one size and shape, inform on those who do not conform
Today, the welfare and poor people...tomorrow...you and me. Anybody up for the government running your healthcare...do as you're told or...
And how do you know those who are using foodstamps? It's a debit card.
why would the BBC have this information?
yes, do what comrad Doictor says or you will be fined/taxed for "the good of the state". And when everyone is at the "required weight" the "required weight" will get lower so big brother can tax/fine you again!!! Besides who can afford to eat with the food prices going up and up.
Get in my belly, welfare check.
its well known that 10% of the people use 40% of healthcare services. Think 'repeat offenders'.
While I hate fat slobs I think they have the right to be fat slobs. Its when they produce disgustingly obese lazy children that really rubs me the wrong way. Fat parents pass on their poor genetics and food choices to the kids who drain our economy and suck up valuable medical resources caused by problems that are easily avoidable. DOn't even get me started on the fatties on welfare.
Stop corporate welfare for junk food. Stop supporting pill pushing corporations. Enter the age of health prevention and promotion. If your taking government dollars you should be forced into eating right cause you are obviously unable to help yourself.
What a bunch of fucking hypocrites. When Michelle Obama started touting healthy eating, you people did nothing but ridicule her and say that she was trying to force Americans to eat healthy. You said 'Get out of our kitchens'. Palin openly mocked her, on more than one occasion. Look at you now. Jumping to the defense of that hag from AZ. You idiots are so easy to read.
@Charley572 Your comment would have a lot more impact if you didn't insert your biased political agenda. Just sayin.
