"Obesity remains much worse for minority populations."

Look on the positive. At least the food stamp, WIC and free school lunch programs are working and we are winning the war on hunger. The liberal of course (filled with righteous indignation) will say that obesity and hunger are not mutually exclusive but where else in the world are the poor obese? Certainly the poor living in the Sudan, Nigeria or Botswana are not obese.

Certainly it's evidence that Ohio could lower taxes by spending less money on public food assistance (i.e., welfare), if welfare only makes those who don't work fat. That would also lower government (i.e., Medicaid) expenses down the road when the state no longer needs to pay for numerous medical bills associated with preventable diabetes, preventable heart disease, etc.

Having to walk behind these fat blobs actually makes me nauseous at times......their thighs swishing together as they waddle along , their arms stuck out to the side because of that enormous gob of fat under their arms!
Meanwhile, they're sitting at their desk eating another cinnamon roll and drinking another Pepsi while I ponder the latest increase to my health insurance premium.

All obese people should be ineligible for health care, welfare, unemployment and food coupons. Only until these people are shunned will they think about being responsible for themselves.

Nice try with the "race card" gibberish. The only refence to so-called "race" is in your mind. I guess when you have zero logic just play the race card. NOT!

I guess anyone who disagrees with or questions you is a "racist" so no one can disagree with you? Is that how it works?
