    Well we have same situations over here in Europe. Granted they are not allowed to rot in a chair till they die.. here we would have put in the hospital against his will if need be to deal with the health issue. But it does happen.. in fact I believe the world fattest person is at present or was a German guy. Now it is a Mexican I think..

    Point is insane obesity is not a uniquely American thing by a long shot.

    Only at Democratic hospitals. Good, wholesome Republican hospitals let patients hang around as long as they want.

    I read the article and at first was like, "What kind of a spouse just lets their partner rot in a chair without ever calling for help?"
    Then I realized, "Oh, yeah, the kind of spouse that lets their partner get morbidly obese to begin with."

    Sorry - but it's not a sole-venture when people are so obese they can't walk and leave their home. When it gets that extreme then it's a joint illness and the person supplying the food is, then, to blame for a lack of concern, intervention and action.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

You have to love someone quite a bit to feed them while they're slowly absorbing a recliner-- the smell alone would be nearly intolerable-- so how can these people not be concerned with the fact that they're literally feeding them to death?
    yeah, that or you hate them.

    I was hoping to read the whole story but there was no; Static link to an article from a bona-fide news organization. Dateline within the past 48 hours.
    Exact same title as the cited article.

    Gosh I thought these were required.

    I had woken up in the middle of the night feeling sick, and read the article while trying not to puke. I meant to post the link as well, just noticed I hadn't done so.
