Hurray for socialism?

Maybe they can also start forcing people who exceed a designated point on the BMI scale to wear a "star of david" (ala the nazis) so that society in general can shun them.
Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh.

Maybe they can start a "Godwin's tax" so armchair politicians can start pulling their weight.

I agree it's an absolutely horrible idea and completely the wrong way to go about promoting health.

But why did you have to leapt to nazi comparisons immediately?

Clearly British government considering cutting some welfare benefits for overweight people who refuse to take part in exercise programs prescribed by their doctors to help improve their health is the exact same thing as attempting to commit mass genocide.

First they came for the overweight British people on welfare who refuse to take part in exercise programs prescribed by their doctors to help improve their health, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't an overweight British person on welfare who refuses to take part in exercise programs prescribed by my doctor to help improve my health...

It's a really slippery slope, you guys!!!

All news reports to do with obesity are always filmed the same way, mid level shots of fat people with their heads cut off. Because fatties aren't real people, they don't have faces or feelings.

Because there are few things Pinoy loves more than a Straw Man argument.

I've never really been particularly fond of the 'Anonymous' group kinda thing but every so often a faction of them makes me nod in silent approval.

A small town in Ohio has been trying to cover up a violent sexual assault; various 'stars' from the town football team have been calling themselves the 'rape crew' and took videos and pictures of themselves drugging, kidnapping, and raping a teenage girl at a party. The cover up goes all the way up to prosecuting attorney, who's son plays on the team. Two of the apparent 5 attackers have been arrested, the other three are seemingly being protected by the town law enforcement.

A grouping of 'anonymous' has compiled the enormous chunks of evidence, including a video confession and mocking of the victim by one of the attackers, hacked into the school website and the webmaster's email where they found nude photographs of possible child pornography. One photograph strongly resembles a girl who had been raped under similar circumstances out in Louisville. Apparently various findings in the webmasters email, who is a football booster fan (basically someone who donates large sums to the football team), suggest that he may be sending out the self-proclaimed 'rape crew' football members to different parties so they can later send him pictures of the girls they victimize.

On one hand I really have an inherent dislike for people who want to be some kind of 'Dark Knight', jumping from roof top to roof top and punching bad guys in the face. But at the same time these particular individuals are exposing a serious problem and could be connecting these individuals to possible multiple rapes that otherwise would go ignored. Sometimes the internet can be a pretty nifty place I suppose.

I wasn't trying to take anything away from the story. It's just that some of us enjoy our daydreams of vigilantism. Oh well. Let me know when it's advisable to communicate again.
