Tell Iran To Supersize It

Any attempts to attack the US will have to come in EXTRA-Large to accomodate a population with an ever-expanding waistline.
Baby seats, doorways and caskets are but a few examples from a long list of life's accouterments that are getting much bigger to accommodate much bigger people. There are also vacation resorts for those embarrassed to be seen in a bathing suit.

At Freedom Paradise on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, the chairs are wider and without arms, to prevent getting stuck; the beds are king-sized and reinforced, to prevent collapsing; and the beach is private and secluded, to prevent gawking and staring.

"You should not be embarrassed by how big you are," said William Fabrey, whose online business "Amplestuff" offers larger versions of everyday things from umbrellas to footstools. "You can't just yell at someone and tell them to lose weight. You're already dealing with people who think they have no worth.
That's a very BROAD assumption - don't you think?
"They still have to sit down on a chair that doesn't collapse," he said.

Like others in this small but growing group of businesses, Fabrey started his company after discussions with an overweight friend. "She was a big woman, and she said, 'There's got to be an easier way to get through the day.'"

To make living large a little easier, Fabrey sells lotion applicators and sponges attached to handles — enabling the user to reach all parts of the body; handbooks on hygiene with tips on dealing with odor problems, chafing and irritations caused by skin folds. His business also provides links to physicians and medical services.

"We don't take any position on whether someone should lose weight," Fabrey said. "That's up to the person."
Yeah, right - corporations that invest millions in oversized products CARE if everyone miraculously loses weight overnight.
Seemingly every day, another study appears that shows the United States is becoming a country of fat people. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 71 percent of men weigh too much, along with about 61 percent of women and 33 percent of children. [!!!]

As Americans grow in weight, their life expectancy becomes shorter — by as much as five years, according to the latest national statistics — more than the impacts of heart disease and cancer. Obesity is fast approaching tobacco as the No. 1 cause of preventable death. [!!!]
So, that's Greenspan's plan - premature Death by Donuts!
The price tag to taxpayers, according to the CDC, is a whopping $117 billion a year, a figure that some health experts dispute, claiming the government numbers are based on faulty data. Not disputed, according to obesity specialists, is the amount Americans spend trying to get thinner — $33 billion a year.
And that doesn't include how much we spent getting fat! Corporations ALWAYS win! I wonder how many of them are publicly traded.
U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona sounded a dire warning last month, telling university students in South Carolina "obesity is the terror within," and that unless people start getting thinner, "the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9-11 or any other terrorist attempt."
Is this the new false flag operation?
Such pronouncements help fuel criticism that catering to bigger people really means throwing wide the door to death by overeating.
I was right! That's the plan!
And for the end of life's road, coffin makers have introduced new lines with higher-gauge steel and widths of up to 28 inches, from the standard 24.

In Indiana, the Batesville Casket Co. calls it "a little extra room for life's final journey."
Amazing. If the terrorists don't get us, our buttocks will.

The terrorist group that is partly responsabel is the suggar lobby in Wahington. It is not just the fat what they have taken out of all food, to give it to have some of the lost flavour manufacturers add sugar. Sugar you don't know about. Sugar is btw more addictive than whatever harddrug or alcohol. Someone has a smart deal somehow. You ever checked how many of the super rich are actually over weighted?
People eat the wrong food ( added sugar) and also to much of it, all caused by consumerism and don't forget the rat race with a lack of sleep. I agree that this is off a greater danger than all the terrorists in the world. Would this be a part of a bigger plan? Or is it just shareholders greed?
Amazing isn't it? Who will turn the light out in the US?

I don't believe in conspiracy theories of more than 10 people (will come out sooner or later) and people have a choice to choose their leaders. If they don't have character/drive to change governments, then they deserve the government they get.

A fat nation cannot rebel. Hunger is one of the requirements. Fat means more than enough to eat, and not enough toil. In other words, relative prosperity. In the olden days, the rich were fat, and gout was the 'duke's disease'.

It is strange how Americans, even the liberal intellectuals, lose track of relativity. It is like the rest of the world does not exist, and the US is not relative to other humans.

While hunger is a curse and conspiracy in parts of the world, being fat is a curse in the US. Give me a break on this one, please.

Nice tagline!

Akber, the other day I went to a meeting in which the speaker said that conspiracies are as natural to humanity as breathing. Indeed etymologically, conspire comes from the Latin word com- together + spirare to breathe: to join in a conspiracy.

I find his assertion quite reasonable. I think that the term got a bad rap more recently because people conspired to do bad things in secret - hence the enactment of a number of criminal statutes aimed to punish "conspirators" like the Sherman antitrust act, and RICO after it.

Also, it is one of the more difficult crimes to prove. So, I diasgree that it easily comes out in the open. People conspire all the time in boardrooms and business meetings all over the world. But, if the companies are private, you're not going to find out about it without a subpoeana and some tangible, credible evidence that something unlawful is going on. and in the case of some antitrust cases, the only unlawful conduct is the conspiracy itself.
