Just one more example of not holding people accountable.Who the hell doesn't know a donut or big mac is fattening? Do you really need to have a label on it telling you it is fattening? If you are going to Dunkin Donuts or Burger King, are you really concerned about the calories and is posting it on every item on the menu going to make you NOT eat it?When do people take responsibilty for themselves? And yes,,let's make the most trying time in a teenagers life become even more stressful by making them have a body fat test in school. Won't that be great to deal with.Let the parents of these overweight kids be responsible ,not the state. Why don't we spend more money on useless junk. Take the money this program will cost and give it to the police and fire departments.Has anyone seen Mayor Menino's fat ass latley???

let's see, we have druken, obese Ted Kennedy, obese Menino and their ilk are trying to tell the rest of us how to treat our bodies?

Bush Jr. used coke, was a big drinker and did other drugs. Bill Clinton was a junkie. Obama did lots of drugs and is currently a drug addict.

These people shoule be in re-hab, not telling the rest of us how to treat our bodies.

Stop electing their jack asses.

Let them be fat all they want,,just don't complain when you health insurance goes up because we have to pay for all their medical expenses because they are obese.And do not complain when one is in front of you in walmart, sitting their fat ass in a scooter, and blocking the aisle for everyone else. Or when one sits next to you on a plane or bus and wheezes like an old chevy pickup.

I hope they are going to post these "warnings" in the senate cafeteria or other places where these pols get together for their three (or four) martini lunches. Maybe even places where pols buy their booze, speaking of fat Teddy. Alcohol is truly fattening and deadly when taken in massive doses, speaking of fat Teddy. Government, please get out of our lives. Take care of the roads and bridges and we will take care of ourselves!

I was going to say ban the drive throughs!

They would get more exercise if they have to walk in and walk out of the fast food joints. If they wanna be fat then I guess that won't work huh.
