The world was never intended to be perfect, and is perfect when free choice and responsibility is the norm. Hitler tried to create a perfect world. How did that work out?

People should be able to make free choices even when their reasons are not perfect. Otherwise we might end up being warm and fuzzy in a walk in oven, if the crowd believes we are less than perfect.

Why do I get the feeling SED's voice sounds like Harvey Fierstein's?

I have no issue with private companies hiring whom they wish. It's their company, and for as long as they do not discriminate based on religion, nationality, gender, skin color or race I have zero issues.

I do however, have a problem with the morbidly obese lecturing smokers about smoking being disgusting or a risk to one's health. It just doesn't get any more hypocritical than a tubby lecturing a smoker.

Maritimers...no one is saying you can't smoke, they are simply saying you can't work there if you do. Again..100% free market capitalism

I have no reason to argue with the sources claiming that obesity is a more costly health problem than smoking.

I would have little problem with private employers implementing a policy against hiring the obese.

To be clear, my companies and I do not discriminate against smokers or the obese, but this is our legal right, just as those individuals have the right to smoke or be obese.

This topic speaks to such basic concepts of liberty and shows once again that so many Americans righteously defend their own prerogatives while readily dismissing others' rights.

I would rather government take away my liberties than to have employers enjoy theirs.
