Well sorry I called you a jackass. I didn't realize you were seriously motivating my mom to determine the boundaries of "junk food" I'm sure she'll feel honored.
I'm not a member of any political party. I guess I'm a capitalist. I believe that the power of free markets will cause both good and evil. I don't think the free market can correct this problem because the government is protecting fat people. It sucks that some people have genes give them a predisposition to being fat, but being fat is bad. It's almost as bad as smoking.
Companies should be allowed to mandate weight loss if they feel it would save their employees money on health insurance
Fat people should be charged extra money to fly on airplanes or sit in a movie theatre.
It's difficult to define "fat" because it's not as if a movie theatre can weigh and measure its' patrons.
I hear "ad council" messages on the radio all the time coming out against smoking, and drugs, in addition to messages convincing people to help those around them that are depressed.
I think people should be reminded that if you are fat:
You have a higher risk of heart disease
You have a very significant risk of diabetes
You are shortening your life span
You have a much higher risk of certain types of cancer
Your sex life won't be as good
Your energy levels will be low
People probably won't like you as much
