A little learning, indeed, may be a dangerous thing, but the want of learning is a calamity to any people.

- Frederick Douglas

Fat Ass!

Let’s agree; it’s your fault you are fat, and it’s my fault I am fat, and if we are not fat, we are the exception.

In a free society, it is important and necessary that citizens understand they are responsible for their life, and the choices they make, but as we become less and less free, and our citizens become dumber and less responsible, it is important that politics be kicked into high gear. We offer you the “Cheeseburger Bill.”

The bill seeks to thwart class-action obesity lawsuits against food manufacturers and restaurants. [Read]

Sounds reasonable, unless you are a member of the class that continues to tell the citizenry they have no responsibility for their lives: "Congress has allowed the need of big corporations before the need of our children," said Rep. Bob Filner, D-California.

You would think a bill like this would pass with near 100% support; unfortunately the vote in the House was only 307-119 in favor.

Now, stop eating so much… of anything.
