punished by the unconstitutional TSA.

And here I am taking you less seriously by your blithering ignorance. TSA doesn't make law dummy. Also, I wasn`t just referring to air travel, if you looked you would have seen me write "by ground or air." I need a passport if I DRIVE into the US from Canada. No TSA there, think before you comment.

I feel like I`m arguing with a brick wall. Your proposal that people who are obese through diet pay for their own health care means that doctors would have to PROVE they were eating unhealthy, which they can`t do. If they then tried to make people pay without proof, let the lawsuits commence.

Need me to explain it further?

Don't be ignorant on purpose, it`s only making me take you less seriously with every post.

Well if you thought a little harder you might understand, but if I must I`ll hold your hand and walk you through it.

If companies are complicit in helping you make those choices, especially by sublimiinal means, then effectively they have helped you make the choice and should share cost of health care.

So EVERY choice someone makes about themselves is the right choice? And you say you take me less seriously with every post. Where do you come up with garbage like that?

"That a few people perform a terrorist act so all must be punished with requiring passports?"

A few people preform a terrorist act so all must be punished by the unconstitutional TSA. Don't be ignorant on purpose, it`s only making me take you less seriously with every post.

"can tell a doctor if you are LIKELY obese from bad diet"

They tell the doctor you are MOST PROBABLY obese from a bad diet and the first thing they tell you to do is to CHANGE YOUR DIET. Again, ignorance on purpose, taking you less seriously, etc etc.

"Well if that's the case, you`re suggesting the drink companies, fast food companies etc. should pay health costs for the people that get fat off of their products."

I don`t know how you came to that asinine conclusion other than that you have absolutely no reading comprehension. If I DON`T want health care to cover obesity, then I want the people making their own conscious bad food decisions to pay for their own medical bills. How you got from "take personal responsibility" to "blame it on the corporate companies" we will never know.

"As it turns out, people ARE too dumb to make the right choice."

No, they`re making the right choice for themselves which may not be what you consider the right choice, which is why they should be punished by taking personal responsibility for the effect their choices have on themselves instead of punishing the majority of people who manage to comprehend moderation.
