Yes! Some politicians are THAT STUPID!

Good Lord I just read that three members of Mississippi state’s House of Representatives, Republicans W. T. Mayhall, Jr. and John Read, and Democrat Bobby Shows are trying to pass a bill (#282) http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/2008/pdf/history/HB/HB0282.xml to make it illegal for restaurants to serve fat people! I thought this was a joke but nope. OK so here are three old white men who have nothing better to do than write a bill on this!? Uh isn’t Miss. one of the last few states that has not banned smoking in public places? Doesn’t Miss. allow people to smoke in cars with kids in them? This is the craziest thing I have ever heard of. I hope Miss. doesn’t enjoy any tourism because how might a fat person eat a meal while staying there or are they suppose to not eat the entire time they are there at a conference or whatever. If I lived in Miss. I would be on a mission to get these three guys out of office before they waste any more of my tax dollars thinking up more brilliant ideas. ASSHOLES! Sorry. Couldn’t help myself. Here’s their contact information if you’d like to tell them yourselves. 🙂

I’m all for helping people get healthy, including myself but this is the stupidest idea I have ever heard of. Ban trans fats, make fast food restaurants serve something healthy, require that restaurants post nutritional guidelines in their menus, have PE for kids in school, have a rebate for people that want to join exercise clubs or something useful.
