    so what fat slob are you afraid is going to be your next president?

    I read your illogical post. It was illogical and I noted that and you seemed not to be fond of that notation which I assumed you wouldn't be.




    I'm not afraid a fat slob will be president. All a president represents is image to 99.9% of everyone and anything. Children are shallow and see things in images. It sends the wrong message to have an irresponsible fat person running the country. It's simply degrading to a country to be run by a physically irresponsible human.

    "Basic logic" dictates that fat people cannot make responsible public policy?

    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?






    Don't be ridiculous, Ryan. Fatties aren't really people.

    Well sir, I don't know, you tell me.


    Your in shape, healthy hypothetical daughter, son that you've spent tens of thousands educating and clothing over the years walks in with a visibly fat person who they're dating. If you're being honest, which I'm not at all assuming you actually will be, are you thrilled with that situation when said suitor leaves and you have time to talk to your son, daughter? How is that conversation really going to go do you think if you're being honest with yourself? Are you truly seeing that man, woman your son, daughter brought home in a "responsible" light or an "irresponsible" light?

    Again I'm not assuming you're going to be honest with that question but if you are honest then we all know what the answer would be.

    My "situation" would be that if that person makes my hypothetical child happy and treats them properly, if they want to date a fat person, that's their business.

    Some people are simply predisposed to suffering from weight problems. It happens. They're not all weak-willed pigs strapping on a feedbag. Your blatant, obvious disdain of the overweight is duly noted.

    I so do not believe that would be your reaction after said fat person left and you were talking to your hypothetical daughter.

    Horrible poll options. I'd choose "irrelevant". We're supposed to elect the best person for the job. Doesn't matter their looks. Instead of making our kids worry about their looks we should instead be making them worry about gaining knowledge so that they can succeed in life. One of the things that really ticks me off about today's society is its superficiality. If you're a woman and don't have an hour glass figure then you're dismissed as if you're were nothing more than a piece of meat. If you're a guy and don't have 6-pak abbs the same thing. Its disgusting that people would rather worry about that crap than their intelligence.

    No, you only know what YOUR answer would be. Based on what you are saying here such an answer would no doubt be based on superficial shallowness. I for one would not care what guy/gal my daughter/son came home with looked like. I'm more interested in whether they are truly caring and if they actually have a brain and use it. If they lack in either of those or have both of those I would tell my kids what I honestly think. Why? Because I'm bringing my kids up to be HONEST.
