Fat Is the New Smoking

By James HudnallWriter/Internet Developer

Do you have a spare tire? Some bulges? Do your thighs rub together? Do you have a big gut?

Well, be prepared to be ostracized.

They already did a number on smokers. It used to be you could smoke almost anywhere, from the supermarket to your workplace. And then they started passing laws until you now have to go to smoke areas which are usually outside and away from everywhere else.

Now they are going after fat people.
"Field studies of environmental tobacco smoke indicate that under normal conditions, the components in tobacco smoke are diluted below existing Permissible Exposure Levels (PELS.) as referenced in the Air Contaminant Standard (29 CFR 1910.1000)...It would be very rare to find a workplace with so much smoking that any individual PEL would be exceeded." -Letter from Greg Watchman, Acting Ass't Sec'y, OSHA, to Leroy J Pletten, PHD, July 8, 1997

So now they are going after fat people. The arsenal of mendacity and fraud they're using comes in many forms. The latest broadside is to link obesity to global warming.
