"No Soup for YOU"!

Or fried chicken, or french fies, or apple pie, or. . .

Cdc_obesity_map_3 Three Mississippi legislators want to make it illegal for restaurants to serve obese customers in Mississippi. A proposal written by GOP Rep. W. T. Mayhall would allow health inspectors to yank the permit from any restaurant that "repeatedly" feeds extremely overweight customers.

The bill, , was referred to the Judiciary and Public Health committees, but The Jackson Free Press doesn't expect it to garner much support in the statehouse.

About two-third of Mississippians are considered overweight or obese, according to a recent analysis of federal health data.

House Bill No. 282, which was introduced this month, says: Any food establishment to which this section applies shall not be allowed to serve food to any person who is obese, based on criteria prescribed by the State Department of Health after consultation with the Mississippi Council on Obesity Prevention and Management established under Section 41-101-1 or its successor. The State Department of Health shall prepare written materials that describe and explain the criteria for determining whether a person is obese, and shall provide those materials to all food establishments to which this section applies. A food establishment shall be entitled to rely on the criteria for obesity in those written materials when determining whether or not it is allowed to serve food to any person.

Do you hear that giant sucking sound? No. . it's not Nafta - It's your civil liberties being sucked away just as fast as your jobs were after Nafta was passed. Would you like another example? Check this out (click the picture):

That is really sick! I don't understand body fat but to each his own. You know, I talked today about how these Political idiots screw around wasting time while the country is allowed to fall apart. I just get peeved that they keep getting away with this idiocy!

But I thought the GOP was all about conserving my rights? I guess that only applies to the rights the NRA supports.
