One role of government is to provide its citizens with quality of life.
Well, maybe your ideal government does this. Mine protects me, but mostly stays out of my way. The US government was never set up to function like how you want it. It would need an overhaul, and really, it needs one anyway.
if.they have a few pounds on
I'm not talking about a few lbs overweight. But unfortunately, when you say a few lbs, in todays terms, you now mean obese people. Not people that literally have 2-5 lbs to lose.
Clearly you know what's going on then.
Then you might want to show some fucking empathy. No one is going to think you used such harsh language because you used to feel that way about yourself, they're going to think you're just a dumb, judgmental prick.
Empathy for the class of people that are fat, know it and make excuses. No fuck that and fuck them. There are so many reasons not to be fat and the majority of them aren't the fact that they are fucking eye sores.
Conversely, maybe we can now take snide, fucking smart-alecks and swap them into the body of a lardass so they can experience the humiliation and despair of being obese, so people like you can have a little more empathy for the human condition.
Implying I haven't lost weight and fought to keep it there.
