...these 3 idiots...#1

Meet Republicans W. T. Mayhall, Jr. and John Read, and Democrat Bobby Shows. These three idiots are members of Mississippi's House of Representatives and came up with one of the dumbest bills in history. They are proposing a bill that will make it illegal for state-licensed restaurants to serve obese people. That means anybody with a BMI of 30 or above won't be able to eat with everybody else. This is a problem since 30% of the state is considered obese.

The two page document states that any restaurant that breaks the law could get their license pulled.

Obviously these three twits don't have anything better to do. Don't they have some tap dancing to do in an airport restroom somewhere?

That's so stupid.
I can understand why, as obesity is a huge problem, but that's not the right way to do it.
Banning restaurants from serving food high in fat would be a better solution. But then I'd never go out. We usually go out to eat the bad food.

Representative Read better watch it ... looks to me like he's getting a little pudgy. He better push the potatoes and desserts away, or he'll be escorted out of his favorite eating establishments.

Not that this bill is ever going to make it to law in the state.
Surely not.

Stories like this make me so proud that I was born and raised there. (rolls eyes)

edit: hmmm, apparently .xml links don't show up from the "optional link" thingy ..
