Fat Lies Corrected

By April 28, 2005General

Here’s a website you just have to check out. It’s from the Center for Consumer Freedom and it’s worth a look because of the interesting information it imparts and because it’s just so damn fun — and funny. The Center, it says, “is a nonprofit coalition of restaurants, food companies, and consumers working together to promote personal responsibility and protect consumer choices. The growing cabal of ‘food cops'”, they continue, “health care enforcers, militant activists, meddling bureaucrats, and violent radicals who think they know ‘what’s best for you’ are pushing against our basic freedoms. We’re here to push back.”

And push back they do with a slew of fun facts, corrections and statistics. Among the most interesting info is a list of all the well-known folks who would be either “overweight” or “obese” under government standards, including two famous Georges — the President and Mr. Clooney — Matt Damon and Johnny Depp. In the “obese category are Tom Cruise, The Rock and the Governor of California. After looking at this site, you do start to wonder about the so-called obesity crisis, it’s origins and its ultimate goals. Their “Additional Links” are an adventure all their own, including ActivistCash.com. More on that at a later date.

There are also some pretty funny cartoons and some games as well, including the “Lawsuit Fabricator” that every manufacturer will appreciate. They’re not afraid to take on opposing groups with ill motives and “good”-sounding names, noting, as they say, “Even an ugly baby can be named, “Tiffany”. What a hoot.

Check out their site and see what you think. We’re off to grab a cheeseburger.
