Really? You Won't Hire Fat People???

Texas hospital won't hire obese workers! We all saw it coming. And now, 1984 really is here. Appearances folks; it's all about appearances. So you won't hire a wonderful, hard-working lady who tips the scales at 250#, but YOU WILL hire that perky little size 6 cutie, who eats like a trucker, then goes to the bathroom and pukes. BUT she only weighs 110# so it's okay????

I know we're getting bigger as a society, and shame on us, but it isn't up to employers, Obamacare, or anyone else to dictate to us how we should look.

The article below should make a lot of people angry! While we have the choice not to listen to a dietician who weighs 300#, she also has the right to keep on working. Perhaps that is something she works hard at recitifying each day, but it's her cross to bear. She is food addicted. Hers just happen to be an addiction that shows. What better person to know all the pitfalls about food addiction. Perhaps she is, after all, the best teacher. How about the alcoholic who beats his wife nightly? Isn't he a risk to the healthcare system? But nobody knows because he doesn't tell and she covers the bruises with makeup.

Boy or boy, now I'm riled! How about you? Any other size 6's out there with bad teeth, weak heart, and many other maladies that just don't show? And before the legitimate slim people string me up, I know that's not always the case, but we need to explore all sides of the issue.

1984, here we comes, just a couple decades late!
