No Fatties Served Here!

JACKSON, Miss. - A state lawmaker wants to ban restaurants from serving food to obese customers.

Here's another asshole, er, I meant Politician, engaged in Social Engineering. Yeah, he was just trying to raise awareness on the subject of obesity. Kind of like the "Aids Awareness" campaigns in Hollywood that seem to never end. If I'm not mistaken, the Entire Universe is now aware of Aids.

This "tongue in cheek" law was never intended to be taken seriously or actually pass according to its author John Read of Mississippi. Then why don't you do what you're paid for and stop with the bullshit and frivolous laws Mr. Read? At 5'11" and 230 pounds he could actually be the first person refused service. Lay off the biscuits and gravy dipshit.

Make no mistake about it. These "laws" are just the doorway to more so-called "sin taxes" designed by politicians to pick the pockets of the average joe. With tobacco tax revenues beginning to decline, the pigs in the various State and Federal Congresses will have to be more creative in their methods when it comes to stealing YOUR money. It's only the start.

Smokers have been victimized in the form of "sin taxes" for years designed to encourage them to quit and improve their health. But many of these taxes are in actuallity surrepticious ways of funding pet government projects and are often never used for their intended purpose. How about some of you politicians start doing what your constituents elected you for and stop with the Nanny State bullshit? Click on the link below.

Yes, not only are we the most obese state in the union. . .our state legislators consistently rank as the most ignorant in the union.

I'm so proud to be a Mississippian.

Now, where'd I put that fatback and gravy sandwich?

Thanks for the comment burnt toast. I don't get too many so I appreciate the input. As far as cooking goes, I just finished some chicken and dumplings and don't give a shit about the calories. I've outlived more than one of my buddies so I figure I'm ahead of the game.

No thanks necessary. I like your style here. You seem like a "typical white person" that Obama would probably loathe. It's obvious by the Lynyrd Skynyrd and Steely Dan posts.

A+ on the chicken dumps, one of the best comfort foods ever invented.

I'm gonna kick around here for a while and check out your container gardening. Take it easy Greasy.

You know that "typical white" person comment by Obummer really pissed me off. I have tried to live my life decently and without prejudice and I've raised my children that way. Then he comes along and makes an idiot statement like that and no one but the conservative blogs call him on it. I was gonna leave a long sarcastic comment on Jammie Wearing Fool's blog but fuck it. Obama is just a fucking idiot and from what I've read he's got a problem with race, not me.
