Surgeon General Richard Carmona stated that:
“America’s obesity epidemic will dwarf the threat of terrorism if the country does not reduce the number of people who are severely overweight. Unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist attempt.”
That’s right, I am doing more harm to this country then terrorists. I would really like to know how this jackass came up with that. Explain to me how me being fat is causing more problems for our society then terrorists? Fat people, regardless of whether they are healthy or not, are clearly one of the only groups left in our society that are fair game for anyone to insult, anyone to degrade, anyone to make fun of, even supposedly “liberal/progressive” people who are “above” that. Since I am fat and society has deemed me unacceptable then I am considered a lower class citizen then “thin” supposedly healthy people thus it is ok to ridicule me, insult me and just take at all your insecurities and issues out on me. Cause it’s not like I am a human being with feelings and emotions.
