    Inb4 USMB resident fat fux post about how great this is.

    When I was a kid, there was MAYBE one fat kid in every class. Now it's just the opposite. This is a serious health problem, not a "lifestyle" choice.

    I love how the left claims that the "slippery slope" is a fallacy.....

    The UK has proved that completely wrong....

    If the "slippery slope" is a fallacy then so is precedence......

    As the old saying goes - you give an inch and you'll lose a mile...

    Not surprised. The UK has become a complete laughing stock. Hard to believe those people practically ruled the world once.

    IMO, who cares - not the governments business.

    Freedom is allowing individuals the freedom to make their own decisions and live/die with them.

    Truth is - some kids are just fat - then they grow up, they hit a growth spirt and as adults are just fine....

    I don't think sitting on their asses playing video games helps but that doesn't change our biology as a species.
