Although both husband and wife were too fat for admittance when they first applied Mr. Trezise, a submarine cable specialist who was once a member of the British Army, has managed to shed two inches from his waistline thereby meeting the standards set for a work visa. .............

I wonder how many fat people recognize this is a direct result of government health care programs. So, follwing this concept down the logical path to it's conclusion, eventually fat people will be forcibly weight reduced for the greater good/ :cool:


Really, I do think people in the obese category should consider the impact on their health, but then again, a large percentage of people in the world are slowly killing themselves with a variety of lifestyle choices. Are we going to begin monitoring everything people do? Or is it superior to die of alcoholism (which may not be externally visible) versus obesity?
