    FOXNews.com - New Proposal by Miss. Lawmakers to Ban Serving Obese has Fat Chance of Passing - Opinion

    A legislation trying to be passed in Missisippi that will require restaraunt owners to deny service to obese people. Doesn't look like it'll go anywhere, but it's an interesting read.

    "[The bill's] dead on arrival at my desk," said the state House Public Health and Human Services Committee chairman. "It is too oppressive for the government to require a restaurant owner to police another human being from their own indiscretions."
    Wait... haven't other states, (not sure about MS) already done this with smokers?

    It rests on the farcical view that "indescretions" explains the position of such folks, when in reality a range of factors exists. It's the same twist of "insight" that allows folks to view all guns as evil, hence all uses and possession must be evil as well.

    I don't know what our lawmakers are thinking. If this would have passed, most of them could not go out to eat.

    Why do these politicians get paid with OUR tax dollars? What the hell are they using OUR money for?
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    A waste of time, but hysterical nonetheless. What's next? Scales at the grocery store?
