Insert That Noise From Invasion of the Body Snatchers Here

So Mississippi wants to ban fat people from restaurants?

Is this a test of my previously discoursed-upon anti-South-bashing stance or what?

Whenever I see a news item like this, or one of those fun studies on what all men/women “really want,” I begin to wonder if perhaps I was dropped here by a stork with his own space shuttle.  Because if Earth people only eat in groups with other Earth people of like size; if Earth people can tell how much someone weighs at a glance*; if Earth people have no relatives, friends, or other loved ones for whom such a law would be restrictive and humiliating, or are just too generally assholish to care about that, then ladies and gentlemen, I stand before you NOT EARTH PEOPLE. And that doesn’t sound so bad right now.
*Oh, and calculate BMI in their heads.

    what is also unbelieveable is what the USDA wants to do to those who own one or more farm animal, be it horse, cow, chicken, pig, sheep etc etc
    The USDA is running roughshod over those who own animals and want to raise them naturally.
    While the USDA is giving corporate ag and factory farming all sorts of breaks, the rest of us who own even one chicken, even as pets, willl have to register our premises with the govt, microchip and file reports on all births, deaths and off property movements within 24 hrs or face huge fines. If disease is suspected the USDA can come in and depopulate a 6 mile radius (140 sq mi.) Reason- so big ag can tell the global market what a safe food supply we have and sell to japan…goofy, i know but it gets worse…see nonais.org for more info on how nais will affect all who eat!
