    I know this is a condition and that it can hurt you but can the &((#$ government make me get out of my truck so that they can weigh me and test me wife one of there doctors at a weigh station? Are they going to nab drivers sat the fuel islands because they ain't skinny like Obama? Will they force you to avoid that fried brownie if you want one with a cup after your supper? When is all this gonna end? This here is over the line!

    I couldn't get the page to fully load. But I got the jest of it.

    Sounds like these 2 dumb###es we have here in our state senate. Introducing a bill to make it against the law to serve obese people at a restuarant.

    Only in Mississippi :(

    We all know that redheads have hot tempers(road rage?). Italians can't talk without hand gestures(distractions) etc. Who's gonna be left when the government gets done?

    I'm not obese but I call it discrimination. That's ok though. When the government run's this country into the ground and all the people who make it go around they will have no choice but to suffer too. What goes around comes around so if they have anybody to blame later because their skinny ###' can't buy any food off the shelf then they only have their self's to blame. They can't take people from their job just because of their weight. They need to get real about this horse #### and start thinking realistically. Beside's, why isn't what's his face in jail and that prostitute he hired? That's illegal. Oh wait, I forgot we were talking about the government. They can do whatever the hell they feel like and get away with it. Sorry ### POS.

    I'm thinking that (then, and now former) Governor of New York would say what he did was alright
    because the prostitute wasn't obese. :yes2557: :biggrin_25525:

    Same way, (then, and now former), President Clinton, wanted to know what the definition of "is" -- is, or was.
    And, .... uhhhh, 'smoking' unlit cigars with female interns while in the Oval Office isn't really "sex", in his opinion.
    Hmmmmmmmmmm

    I wonder if Hillary shares her husband's opinion? I hear she was down on his smoking cigars. And she even threw ashtrays at him while they were in the White House -- a felony, by the way, to assault the President. Maybe that's why?

    But I often wonder what visiting dignitaries though after that episode, when Bill offered them a fine cigar?
    EEwwwwww!
    No thanx!
    I'll pass (out). :biggrin_25523:
    But where's that devil with the blue dress on, at? :biggrin_25524: :biggrin_25523:

    Not so, said the deaf man to the blind man.

    A simple google search will reveal the truth of your statement. Our leaders will simply do what others have done for so many years.

    Relocate as "leaders in exile" living off the hoards of money they stole from us.

    ANY country will welcome you with open arms, when you can tap into 50 million plus cash.
