    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.




    So why have health classes and PE classes in school then? Why? What's the point in kids reading their health books if we're going to have a medically rotund person as chief CEO of the country?


    Why not just have "Cheeto and soda" classes? Those seem to be our values.

    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.
    Frankly what the children will think of the president based on how he/she looks is somewhere below whether my turds formed the shape of a D or a R as a reason to vote for a candidate.

    I hope you never produce a child with a thyroid disease. Cause I guess you are the one that can tell him/her that they will never qualifiy to be president of the U.S. because of their weight and they need to lower their expectations now in reaching for anything too high because it will never happen.

    So is that what they're going to tell Putin when they plop alongside him on the international stage and make us look the fool? Are they going to be like "Remember my Thyroid disease!!!! Don't forget to report that!!!."




    And that's complete bs by the way. That isn't why they're fat. It's a symptom of them being fat.


    That brings up another good point though. Should we be electing medically unhealthy people to office?

    Yes. Especially if we're SURE they will die within a few years.

    The shorter period a politician is in charge the better.

    Why are we so concerned about what Vladimir Putin thinks?

    Because it matters geopolitical.


    That's like asking why is what the doctor thinks important in the surgery room..



    Amazing that such a post could be seen as wisdom on a political forum.. I guess that says a lot about this fora..

    LOL wut.

    So apparently Vladimir Putin's opinion of our president's weight should be a concern of ours headed into the voting booth, comparable to that of doctor performing surgery.

    That's utterly asinine.

    I am no fan of Chris Christie's, but the idea that his weight somehow should disqualify him from office because it would make the U.S. look bad geopolitically is insane.

    Everything you just typed is completely contradictory on a political level.
