    With the explosion of obesity in America , I want to applaud Michelle Obama for her inititive to combat childhood obesity.

    Obesity seems to be at epidemic proportions here in America. One out of every three children in America is obese.

    America spends billions in additional medical cost to treat obease Americans for their related health problems linked to being obese.

    The federal government needs to pass laws banning obesity, to finally gain some kind of control with regards to this national problem.We must enact severe penalties for people who are obease, up to imprisonment, and major fines for being obese. We also need a tax on Obease people, to help pay for the extra billions of dollars that they have spent on them during their hospitalization for obesity related problems.

    Nah. Just open loosen regulations on the insurance companies and let them outright cancel folks when they get over xxx pounds. That will fix it w/o new laws.

    I suppose I don't have a problem with this because I believe medicare and the like should be able to cancel you if you smoke so whatever. Let them die in the streets.

    Well - there is a lack of jobs in America. The government could hire some of the unemployed folks and station them by each door of all the McDonald's, Hardee's, Wendy's and other places like that and not allow anybody inside the building that appears to be the slightest bit overweight. No exceptions. This would be something that 52ndStreet could possibly agree with.

    Another way of looking at it is people like 52ndStreet could mind their own business about people's personal choices. If a person wants to be obese in America it's their own business.

    When the government begins to control what you eat and drink, then it has, in all likelyhood, gone too far.

    Yeah that Damned FDA!

    If I want melamine in my milk I sould be able to get it that way.
    And I like some Salmonella, gives the meat a bit of flavor.
    And I can't buy Equine T-bone steaks anymore either.
