Hey I like Country Kitchen. Don't see many fat people there. I think more like KFC or McDs.

I love Country Kitchen, been years since I've been there, but they had really good food. There were always a lot of really fat people at the ones I went too, not that that mattered, but I always see lots of fat people at any all you can eat places around me.

The fattest people I have seen always eat at some greasy pit.

There used to be a pizza place in my town that had an all you can eat Sunday Buffet for $5. They stopped doing it after a couple of months because the place was packed with huge people that ate three or four large pizzas apiece along with pop and dessert. The Ponderosa in my town ripped out half the booths they had and put in more tables because the huge people there to eat at the all you can eat buffet complained that they couldn't fit.

Maybe we should tax people based on their weight. Men could be ok up to 180 lbs, but for every pound above that they pay an annual fat tax, collected by the Bureau of Weight Control. Genius, right? :-0

Oh hell no, I hope you're kidding. People should not be taxed or penalized for their body. Unless it's a safety issue like a fat person can't ride an amusement park ride because they weight more than the ride is rated for, or a short person is to short for the safety harness to fit right etc.

My only point is, at least around me, fat people tend to frequent all you can eat places. I guess that means restaurant owners either need to charge everybody more for the buffet, or not offer all you can eat. Wouldn't be fair to charge just fat people more though, nor would it be fair for the government to tax fat people.

I have heard about them wanting to tax "junk food" like they do cigarettes, but that's bull. First how would you even define "junk food", what would be and what wouldn't be? I don't think it's right they put an extra tax on cigarettes or other "sin tax" items either.

Of course I'm kidding. I thought mentioning the "Bureau of Weight Control" would make that obvious. And you're right - there shouldn't be an extra or higher tax on cigarettes or any other product, because the government should NOT be in the business of social engineering/behavior management where personal choice is concerned. And the control-freaks are now trying to pass a "sugar tax" on things like soft drinks. This nightmare is just beginning.

Well I figured you were, but you hear enough screwballs here and there that actually believe that stuff that I had to check. clown

I might be laughing right now. However I would not put it past our politicians to create such a bureau.
