Has it come to this?

Obesity Action Coalition Calls on the State of Mississippi House of Representatives to Withdraw House Bill 282 Discriminating Against Those Affected by Obesity
I can't even imagine how they propose to enforce this farcical bill. Do they plan to stand at the doors of restaurants and make patrons stand on a scale before they enter?! Will those judged obese be required to order from the "salad menu?"
Although it has a snowball's chance in hell of passing, the premise is really creepy to me. What's next? Policing pregnant women to make sure they don't have a cup of coffee?!
Call me crazy but, I thought Republicans favored less government intervention, not more. I guess that only applies to business, not individuals.
