In tracking this issue, one will notice that it is progressing along two different lines, both bad. The PC crowd is slowly trying to turn fat into a disability, branding fat people victims. Meanwhile, governments are more aggressively regulating "fat" people's behavior (or should I say behaviour), even monitoring kids' diets; someday we will see child protection services fine parents and take their kids away due to supposed obesity-triggering diets. This, kids, is what we get when government moves from protecting your rights to providing you the means to exercise them. Long Live Socialized Medicine!!
