“”The AP reported Monday that ALL obese adults receive “intensive counseling” in an effort to rein in a growing health crisis in America. This “Preventative Services Task Force”, TASK FORCE, urging doctors to identify patients, name names, who have a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or more, which is considered obese in this country. Doctors are either to provide intense counseling themselves, because doctors have a lot of free time on their hands, or refer the patient to a program which is designed to improve weight loss and health prospects.’ Isn’t this wonderful? This is precisely the thing that the Left said wouldn’t happen. Anyone who claimed that it would was just trying to scare you, where your doctor would have to report you to the government if you fell under the government’s category of obese so that you would go under government-required intense therapy. But hey! IT’S FREE!! HEALTHCARE IS FREE!! IT’LL MAKE IT AFFORDABLE AND FREE!! Oh, the strings attached. And this is what happens when it’s “free” to you. The person who controls the purse strings controls YOU.”
Is it worth it? Is it? When you give someone, or some entity, like the government, control over some aspect of your life, you no longer have any authority to make your own decisions. You are at the mercy of that person, or entity.
NOTHING IS FREE, FOLKS. Everything has a price. And Obamacare? Will cost you your freedom to make your own decisions when it comes to your own body. I’m not willing to pay that price.
I pray every night that this piece of sh*t legislature gets overturned. And I pray nightly that we get rid of this power-hungry dictator in November. Give me back my freedoms!

Obesity Screening: Doctors Urged To Routinely Check Patients’ BMIs
Huffington Post kills me – doctors won’t be URGED to check patient’s BMI’s, they will be REQUIRED to check BMI’s and REPORT obese people, and that’s obese by the government’s standards, so that they, the obese people, can be ORDERED to go to counseling. There’s no urging, folks. That makes it sound like it’s a choice, that it’s a good deed on the doctor’s part. No. The choice was taken away the MOMENT this stupid, asinine law was passed. I hope you’re happy, Liberals, because this is the beginning of the end of personal freedoms and choice.
