Can Government Force You to Live Healthy?

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Given the fact that the Medical Marxists in charge of America have succeeded in passing a bill that allows the government to force private citizens to purchase health insurance, and levy fines, and or jail, to those who fail to comply, just how far can the nanny fascists go in deciding how you live your life?

How about a government mandate to outlaw behavior which leads to obesity and related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease?

If government can force me to buy health insurance, against my will, in the name of advancing the greater good, can those same imbeciles tell me that my weight must not exceed those absurd height-weight charts found in doctors’ offices from coast to coast?

What about a required weigh-in at the local IRS office every year in early April, say a couple of weeks before April 15?

Exceed the prescribed weight for your body frame, sex, and age, and IRS automatically adds $100 to your tab bill—for every pound of excess flab. So the guy or gal with 50 extra lbs to their name would have to cough up an extra $5,000.

Add that to the $5,000 penalty for not having insurance, and you have Ten Grand staring back at you, just for being a slobaholic.

Continue down that slippery slope for another year, and you might find yourself incarcerated and forced to unwillingly lose those 50 pounds before being allowed to live free.

Or with dim-bulbs like Nancy Pelosi in charge, the insanity might even go further: Given the chance, Nanny Nancy would outlaw Twinkies, mashed potatoes and gravy, real ice cream, Reese buttercups, sour cream, spaghetti and meatballs, beer, French bread and butter, popcorn, Frito chips, hot dogs, and any and all foods and drinks found at a typical American 4th of July celebration, Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner, and most birthday parties, where Anglo-Saxon culture and food are allowed.

In contrast, some of the most fatty, high-calorie and carbohydrate-laced foods like Tacos, Tamales, Burritos, and Enchiladas would be exempt from Nancy’s law, owing to the sensitive nature of Hispanic voters and-- their voting numbers.

What about exercise? Getting enough—at least one hour a day?

Damn your hide! You are a national security risk and a threat to the success of ObamaCare and medical fascism. This must not stand!

You will, therefore, be required by law to exercise daily according to a regime devised by a panel of health experts like Charles Rangel, Barney Frank, and Louise Slaughter.

The law will be enforced by IRS agents who will be authorized to demand proof of your compliance before allowing you to withdraw funds from your government- insured bank account.

Stop bitching, Pilgrims! This is Progress, remember?

Say what? What about a law making it a felony to smoke, chew, or sniff any tobacco product? (except marijuana,GBH,Xtasy,or CRACK of course)


Sorry, mate, but that sort of intrusive interference is above the pay grade of our nicotine-addicted Commander-in-chief at this time!
