  •  Problem is that we only blame some of the victims, (0+ / 0-)

    the ones we feel entitled to hate and blame generally for
    some reason totally unrelated to the problem.

    By the way many people who are not overweight still have type-2 diabetes.  

    As I said elsewhere, what about reckless drivers and the carnage they cause on the roadways?  What about alcoholics - there's a big one - lot of physical and mental issues caused by them.  What about gun violence?  What about polluters?

    And if we are looking for the person who should pay, why the vicitm?  Why not the person who profits from the victim's misery?  The candy manufacturers?  the tobacco companies?

    Why shouldn't they be the ones to pay?  They're the ones who profited.

    The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
