    Fine...prove to me with links to unbiased facts that Christie fits in that category and I will take it back.

    I HIGHLY doubt he fits in that category.

    You just cannot stop putting words in people's mouths, can you?

    I am not congratulating myself for anything. Where exactly did I congratulate myself for anything?

    The answer is - I did not.

    I quit those vices and they were difficult. But I have never once said 'Hey, look at me. I quit these things.'

    The fact that I started them all in the first place shows just how weak I can be.

    So, if anything, I am insulting myself.

    Sheesh.

    But you put those words in my mouth anyway.


    Now we are done...good day.

    This poll troubles me because of so many wanting to mold and form what should be politically correct and acceptable. There was another poll up recently about the age differences between spouses suggesting we should make it illegal for such marriages to occur. What the Hell is wrong with some of you people? You got a problem with liberty and freedom? If a person is happy being fat, what skin is it off your nose? If a person is happy being married to someone much older, why should you want to stick your big nose into their business? Some people have gnarly looking teeth but their minds and hearts are exemplary. Should they not apply for the job of presidency or public office because of their teeth? If you are looking past what a candidate has to offer in the way of accomplishments, education, experience, his mindset and his heart, then you have gone too damn far.

    It's fine if a person wants to be fat or is fat. Nobody is saying those are bad people. What we are saying is that those people shouldn't be leading the world. Would you let a pack a day smoker lead the world who actually had a smoke in their hands on TV? No. Why would you let a medically fat person run the world and be on TV? It's the same thing.

    The same negative health message is sent to young minds of young children. Fat is okay. Being really fat is even so okay that you can run the world. That is the wrong message for developing minds.

    Lead the world? Hell I would be happy with a jolly fat person at this point that could lead this country by promoting sound policies that will insure it will be around for another 100 years.
    A lot of folks with weight issues are due to things out of their control. It has nothing to do with eating too much or eating the wrong foods. Everyone has at least one fat person in their family and they don't view them as sending young minds a negative message. The negative messages being sent to young children are often being sent by fit, thin people.

    Should this even be allowed considering the health message it sends to US children that the leader of the free world can be medically fat?



    Well, physical appearance is one thing, but what is the "message" when the nation elects an unqualified rock star? What is the message when the nation then re-elects said rock star when he has proven to be a liar, incompetent and having created a nightmare in foreign relations.

    I guess it's all OK if he is good looking and slim and his wife is an angry crusader for what children eat.

    That is why this thread.

    Obama's domestic policy is in shambles, we don't dare say the word "Obamacare", his foreign policy moves now has him poised to enter into yet another war, Iraq redux, Putin is wiping his ass with the Ukraine.


    He has run out of things with which to distract heading into the mid terms [that he so desperately needs to win] so what better idea than to turn the debate over to the new "terrorist', Obesity?

    We see Obama, slim and trim, then a long list of pics of a chubby and old Hillary, and some really, really fat beasts, and the focus is then on "lifestyle" complete with dictates and judgements passed.

    And all the while, we are NOT thinking about that health insurance premium we have to make this month, the rent and how to do that on half the salary you used to make. And we forget to ask just when Americas troops will be coming home or what, ultimately happened about that plane the Russians shot down in which the president said he would unearth every stone..blah, blah.

    And we will not remember that it was Obama who arbitrarily withdrew US forces out of Iraq triggering the current civil war.

    And, looking at all this ugly fat, we will forget to ask that other lifestyle question: has the president stopped smoking.
