The morbidly obese person who doesn't take care of himself receives more subsidized health care from the emergency room on average than the healthy person but doesn't pay more in taxes for it.
That is even worse. Why is Mcdonalds allowed to operate in the first place? Why give that morbidly obese person a chance to be morbidly obese? It is like putting drugs in front of somebody at a low price and expecting them not to take it. It is not just Mcdonalds... most food is unhealthy. Why does the government allow this poison to be sold? It is ridiculous. We sent man on the moon yet we don't have healthy food, one of our basic needs. Are we progressing, or are a few progressing at the expense of the masses? Certainly seems like the latter.
Then why let you exist? You are only perverting the minds of others who choose to make decisions of their own volition. For what reason are you "permitted" to speak freely? From where do you think you derive that power?
If you wish to start deciding who gets to exist and who doesn't, tell me where you think that power comes from, and define it for me.
