So, Mississippi is trying to make it so resturaunts can't serve FAT people. How about that?

Will there be some kind of scale that measures your weight & height etc..?Who is going to determine what is too fat to be served?Can the fat person work at the resturaunt, just not get served?http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2008/0201081fat1.html
Adam aka Preacher:

Well, I am going to get blasted for this. When the smoking laws and lawsuits were running rampant, Rush Limbaugh said "fatties, we are next." He was right. Say what you will about Rush, I do not always agree with him by the way, but he does have his ear to the ground on many political and social issues. He has been correct on very many predictions.
The government on all levels local, state, etc is and always will grow larger and control our lives more and more unless, we, the people stand up together. We have to find common ground and that common ground is our freedom. I do not care if you are as liberal or conservative as they come. Freedom is our commonality and freedom comes with a price and responsibility on all citizens. Sorry to rant.

Skullz5:

right hit the smokers the rest will follow sooner or later.

?SugarBabe:

One must always wonder if Rush was using OxyCondin or other pharmaceuticals when he made such a pronouncement. $B

Skullz5:

not shocking look below your question.

GDW:

that is discrimination. you cannot serve pick who you are going to serve. Poor customer service and bad judgement.

Sunrise23666:

how ridicules and what a waste of time and tax payers money.

Russ:

and, may I add, totally un-Constitutional ?

Tim:

SOO WRONG!

Positivity:

I have to wonder where you got this information? I recently read a review in which Mississippi was listed as the state with highest number of obese people living in it. So, if this is true, most restaurants would go out of business as the majority of people would be not be able to dine out!?! Perhaps you might want to double-check your facts. Besides, it would hardly be constitutional to discriminate against people based on their body weight and dining out!!!

HANKSTER:

I posted the source with the question. It was linked to by the DrudgeReport.com. Crazy eh?

BMC:

I just Googled this and it's real, very real and they are very serious about it. There is a ton of news articles, take your pick.

JaneMarie:

What bull$hit eh, I tell ya! Maybe they shouldn't serve blondes alcohol...

Tim:

HOEPTHAT WA A JOKE..LOL I TELLBLONDE JOLES..AM BLONDE..HEY MAYBE NO DOGLOVERS..LOL
SORRY ALL CAPS... MY EYES

JaneMarie:

Yes it was a joke, just picked blondes cause of the rap they get,lol.

Tim:

I AM JUST....UM.....LOST FOR WORDS, ABHORED, BUT HAVE MANY COULD SAY AS A NON us CITIZEN...HOW WELCOMING FOR THE STATE...I ALWAYS WANTED TO GO THERE...DISCRIMINATION!! SOOOOOOOOOO WRONGGGGGGGGGG,IT REALLY IS UPSETTING AND DIS-HEARTENING! :(:(:(:(:(:(:(

?SugarBabe:

Serving fat people? What have we become a nation of cannibals? Seriously, overweight people are now forced to buy two airplane seats on several airlines. $B

Legendary:

Well I have traveled through Mississippi and there is nothing great about the state or it's people. The state is full of igornant hillbillies and this proposed bill is part of their igornance. How on GOD's Green Earth are you going to tell ANYBODY that they cannot eat at a particular restaurant because of their physical attributes/disabilites/obesity/etc................???!!! Next thing you know, we are going to hear that the seating area for all Mississippi restaurants will be split into three parts: The left side will be for all Caucasians, the right side for African Americans, and the middle for anyone who crossed the border.

BMC:

Body builders beware because most of them have a BMI of over 30. According to my BMI I'm very close to being obese myself LMAO! BMI is a standard, even the military uses it but when someone goes over the BMI chart they have take measurements and do other calculations. Muscle weighs more than fat and it's easy to tip the standard charts. Bone density is another contributing factor to weight.
A resteraunt is going to figure this out how? or are they going to stop feeding athletic people too? Do you now have to scale in before dining? Just what most people want to do when they go out on a date! Hmmmm, do we take our shoes off first, strip down naked before we are weighed?

Joking aside...First the law is just plane unconstitutional, but after reading some of the articles they are quite serious about it. I would be very concerned if I was a Mississippi resident. The more infringement laws that go on the books, the easier it becomes to put others out there. Look at some of the laws that California has passed.

Say a person for whatever reason agrees with this law, resturaunt patrons will be crossing state lines to eat out, happened in NY. Your businesses lose money and hurts your economy. This is just bad for everyone, obese or not.
