    i dont agree with that scotty...when you're going into high school you're also in the beginning stage of puberty...you're growing both height and weight

    The fat people should be taxed until they're piss ass broke, and starve off some of that un-sightly adipose...

    Or until they start coming to anabolicminds.com, and learn the right way to lose those pounds...

    It's not hard to define Snickers and Hostess products as unhealthy however. Having a fat tax there would make sense. Also most chips and other empty calorie foods. You can still eat them but you pay a little more to cover the damages that they are proven to cause. I see no problem there. Just like cigarette and alcohol taxes.
    Yeah, but junk is fine in moderation. So what are they going to do, keep a tally of how many Mr Big's you buy?

    No, if you decide to buy one it costs more than it used to because of the tax.....simple really.

    That would be unjust, since it is fine in moderation.

    It may or may not be. I pay it every time I buy a beer. That said, that's why we should tax more heavily the people who have health problems because of out of control eating and they are driving up the cost for everyone else because of thier own bad choices. Same should be true for rehabs etc. Fine, go for free but the serve the community to pay it back if you cant with cash.
