    Sure a great idea.. I'll ask them what else they can help me with..

    NO.. I have the God given ability to think on my own. Despite the amount of credible evidence to refute this fact, some Americans do have the innate ability to think and act for themselves..

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Are you suggesting morbidly obese people do not exist, or just taking issue with the clinical definition, as defined by the World Health Organization:

    BMI ≥ 35 or 40 is severe obesity
    BMI of ≥ 35 or 40–44.9 or 49.9 is morbid obesity
    BMI of ≥ 45 or 50 is super obese

    (BMI = Body Mass Index)

    Oh that's an irrefutable fact, no doubt. Problem seems to be growing numbers irrefutably demonstrating they do not have the capacity to think and act for themselves in a positive, responsible manner.

    We may also lump into this category people running food companies heavily dosing their products with salt, MSG, sugar and Gawd knows what else to keep the aforementioned people consuming the stuff. No different than drug dealers in this respect. Same goes for most restaraunts, especially the fast food joints.

    I take issue with anybody trying to define what is right for me or mine.

    And the end result for poor decision making could be early or untimely death. Yea well...

    Drug dealers? The people who visit drug dealers know what it is they are looking for and do so of their own accord.

    They have labels on the food containers (thanks to government) so let people read them and begin to make decisions on their own. We do NOT need more regulation or decision making for the American People. What's needed? American people making good decisions for themselves. The ones who fail to decide positively or with their own best interests in mind will ultimately pay the price.

    I love America and all her children, but I will not be made to pay the price by giving up any of my freedom for the dumb ones.

    I recall a post on Yahoo some time after the death of Cory Haim in which the poster all but advocated immediately passing a law regulating doctors and prescription drugs.. I loved that thought process.. No not really.. Blame everyone else for the bad and forget to look in the mirror and see the bad in you.

    Sorry not buying it. I would rather eat smoked bacon cheese burgers with free patriots than regulated
    fat-free low-sodium veggie burgers with sheep..

    Just so we understand this is not to flame you. I get emotional when it comes to things like this. So we shall coexist and peacefully disagree. Agree?

    Peace...

    If they can regulate salt. What is to stop them using the same logic to put a big fat tax on Ammunition?
    You all had better wake up before we are suddenly paying $100.00 for a box of ammo.
    What ever happened to limited government?

    No, but I say BMI does not account for muscle mass. they want everyone skinny, weak and unable to fight back if they can get our guns.
