Food Nazis invade Chicago

A phony physicians group is urging Mayor Daley to halt the growth of fast food restaurants in the city.  The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine wants the city to temporarily stop fast food restaurant construction in Chicago.  They would prefer we all eat tofu and bean sprouts.   They advocate that personal responsibility does not matter any more.  It is the fast food industry’s fault and the government’s fault you are a fat slob.

The organization sounds like the typical left wing groups.  They all have committees for the blah blah blah of something or other.  These people sound like the Physicians Committee for Irresponsible Idiocy.  What they do not tell you is there are few physicians in their organization and their group has nothing to do with medicine.  It has everything to do with promoting the vegan lifestyle and limiting animal testing.   There is nothing about “responsible medicine”.

They are planning to run gross ads all over- if they can get them on TV- decrying a fast food diet.  Some guy lying on a slab in the morgue clutching a cheese burger with the weeping widow.  How about some truth in advertising- something these groups never ever believe in.

Food is a choice.  Eating sensibly, staving yourself, or being a glutton is a personal choice.  Except for a few medical conditions, congenital, and genetic abnormalities, obesity is a choice just like bulimia.  People choose to eat at fast food restaurants.  They choose what to eat there, what to super size, and how often they stuff their pie holes there.  If they want dessert to top off that double McWhopper with cheese and a chocolate shake, it is their choice.  It is their right.  If they want to eat rabbit food and tofu, that is their right too.

It is not the fault or responsibility of the restaurants, the government, the city or anyone else if individuals develop huge sagging guts, bulging thunder thighs, and triple bar stool derrieres.  It is no one’s fault or responsibility if they clog their arteries, develop heart disease, diabetes, or any other condition.  It is their personal responsibility and choice.  If they develop diseases or get grossly obese, it is their fault- no one else.  They made the choice.  Freely and willingly.

All these phony groups are nothing more than charlatans and frauds.  They are promoting only one thing- kachingo$.  Keep those checks and money orders coming in so we can keep trying to take away your personal choice.  They are the food and health Nazis.  The Hezbollah of the food and pseudo medical world.  They are quacks.  They are tyrants and dictators.

They came first for the cigarettes,
and I didn’t speak up because I didn’t smoke.
Then they came for the donuts,
and I didn’t speak up because I didn’t have a sweet tooth.
Then they came for the booze and I didn’t speak up because I hardly drank.
Then they came for the double cheese burgers with super size fries and large pop,
and I didn’t speak up because I only ate grilled chicken.
Then they came for the pork rinds, hot sauce, and grape pop.  I didn’t speak up because I ate jerky, Slim Jims, and drank beer.
Then they came for the pastry and ice cream and I didn’t speak up because, well, I was afraid to.
Then they came for the coffee, bacon, ham, hashbrowns, and eggs.  I didn’t speak up because I was in hiding.
Then they came for me
and by that time there was nothing left to enjoy.
