I'm Worse Than A Terrorist!

did you know that we (the fatties, big dudes, chubby chicks, big boned peeps) have been called "worst than terrorists" by our very own surgeon general Richard Carmona?

    America's obesity epidemic will dwarf the threat of terrorism if the country does not reduce the number of people who are severely overweight, Richard Carmona, the US surgeon general, said yesterday.

    "Unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist attempt," he said during a lecture at the University of South Carolina.

    Obesity rates have tripled over the past 40 years for children and teens, raising their risk of diabetes and other diseases. For the first time, Dr Carmona said, children were being diagnosed with high blood pressure.source

sorry, i'm too engrossed in this chocolate macadamia nut cheesecake with caramel sauce to plot bombing a government building. or is the mere site of me eating something "bad" enough to wipe out 2,000 or more people at once? IS IT?

talk about hate and fear mongering at it's best. it's crap like this that pisses me off. or am i the only one who feels like there's more important things to worry about (LIKE ACTUAL TERRORISM!) than what people decide to stuff in their faces?

I didn't vote for Kaiser Bush, and I question his poor decisions, and I'm fat, so I'm like a million times worse than a terrorist. Plus, one time I smoked pot -- remember when they had those PSAs about how drug money supports al qaida and shit? Well, that's it, folks, the jig is up and the terrorists have won!
