It seems it is now okay to treat overweight people the same way as smokers. With open, public hate and contempt. Is that a good thing? I’m sure the overweight antismokers think it is. It’s their game, after all. They invented it so they must surely enjoy playing it.
The woman pictured is not obese. Not even fat. She is curvy and woman shaped and healthy and really quite attractive. Yet she was handed a fat-hater card, presumably by a man who had his skin stretched over like a shrink wrapped skeleton. One who thinks supermodels are attractive because he doesn’t have enough in his arms to worry that he might snap a zero-size model by hugging her.
I have seen women so thin I wonder how they manage to lift their arms. Feebleness is not an attractive trait in my book. How would such a human wraith be of help when I’m tangled in a fallen ladder or trapped under an unwisely lifted rhubarb root? Women need a bit of meat on their bones too and while I’m not attracted by the steroidal bodybuilder type, I do like to see curves and independence combined.
Now, though, it is acceptable for people with no lives to try to control the lives of others for any reason. Okay, I can see how you’d build an antismoker militia out of idiots who think diesel fumes are better than the smoke from half a gram of burning leaf, but chubbiness? How does that affect anyone at all?
As for cost to the NHS, if you think smokers, drinkers and chubbies are using all the money that you paid in, might I suggest you start a movement where the aim is for you to stop paying for us all? Do any of you control freak drones have the balls to do it? Demand your NI back? No, you stupid bastards will keep paying because you think it all goes to poor orphans and your ancient and abused relatives in the nursing home.
It doesn’t. Nor does it pay for food or hospital stays. It’s just another income tax. If I could opt out I could get private healthcare cheaper. So could you. We would all be better off without the millstone of the NHS as a little research would show.
So don’t moan at the smokers or the drinkers or the overweight. With the amount of money the NHS gets they could treat any illnesses related to those things, which is now every illness imaginable and more, and have money to spare for admin carpets and private parking spaces. Instead they waste it on lifestyle Nazism and government lobbying.
Don’t moan at us. We aren’t the ones forcing you to pay for the NHS you think you’ll never use.
Refuse to pay. Grow a pair and refuse to pay. You don’t want to pay for an NHS that treats sick people who aren’t you? Go on then. Refuse to pay. I dare you.
I’m not fat but I am a smoker and a drinker. You think I cost you money. Refuse to pay. But don’t direct your cost-anger at me for the money you’re paying into this behemoth.
I’m not the one forcing you to.
