Did you know that according to the BMI Scale I am classified as overweight?

If the insurance companies or government ever use the BMI scale to determine health (which they were trying to do), I will have to be "re-educated".

We'll just add that to Obama's communist ideology for 2009. If he's going to tax the rich (until we're out of business), sue OPEC, mandate health care for "the less fortunate" then why not fine fat people and give the money to our Senators for earmarks.

"If necessary, those people will be steered toward further re-education after six more months"
-Nice

"A survey by the National Center for Health Statistics found that the average waist size for Caucasian American men was 39 inches"
-Holy crap. I didn't know that.


"Still, at a city gym in Amagasaki recently, dozens of residents — few of whom appeared overweight — danced to the city’s anti-metabo song, which warned against trouser buttons popping and flying away, “pyun-pyun-pyun!”

“Goodbye, metabolic. Let’s get our checkups together. Go! Go! Go!

Goodbye, metabolic. Don’t wait till you get sick. No! No! No!”

---Wow! That's pretty weird.

Aw, c'mon. It's for your own good.

The saddest thing is how few people realize how dangerous these nanny bureaucrats are. They are more dangerous than National Socialists because they hide their evil intentions behind this phony veneer of caring. At least Nazis are up front about it.

Well I drank beer constantly day and night, are big fat greasy pastrami subs, scarfed down bags of BBQ chips & dip, ate until I almost popped, and still could fit in my Bill Walters Leathers sized in 32-30(in the avitar)that I got in 1973.

BUT after getting squished by that SUV and the Mo', I can't eat anything but "healthy" foods, one beer a day, only chicken and fish, and I've now got a 36 inch waistline. It's a plot I tell you, a plot to sell all those short portlys with continental pockets that Eddy from Zachry All has stored in a warehouse somewhere...
