I think we as a "world" community should had them bag fulls of candy and stop padding all of life.  Eventually natural selection will kick back in, and we'll actually have the better genetics finally in full speed again.  Stop getting in Darwin's way at let evolution do its work.   Can't stop yourself from eating?  Lets not get in your way.   Can't stop yourself from being a bad driver?  Here's the car with no air-bags / padding.  Eventually you'll learn or die, its just better that you take yourself out instead of causing any harm to anyone else.

I half agree with this. The message she's trying to address is a good one. There is a huge problem with weight in the US, I just think she could've addressed it in a different way.

Some people know how to take the fun out of everything.

 

No doubt. I'd call her a flat out b**ch! Who does she think she is, some savior, or something? What do her kids look like?

 

Whether the message is "just stating facts" or not, it is not her place to do this.

Halloween is a commercial holiday by chocolate and sweet/candy companies anyway, so this makes a 100% sense. Stop feeding your children garbage and take responsibility!

why not give out fruit instead, think that would send a stronger message. She should get a neon sign... No cold calls, no trespassing, no fat kids!!!

I think it was a publicity stunt. I mean, why even say anything at all before the event? Just give the normal kids real candy and give the over weight kids something diet. No need to say a word. People will get the message.

Then don't contribute in Halloween at all, she should keep the porch light off. It's a bit hypocritical, pass out candy but at the same time basically looking down on over weight children. Even if that's not her intent, kids would still easily take it that way. 

Everyone wants to do their part to make the world a better place.

 

I agree with them. There are way too many obese people (especially in the U.S.) and the trend doesn't seem to be noticeably declining.

People, naturally, aren't built to feel, look, act like that. Might as well get at 'em while they're young...

It would no doubt be cheaper to buy candy and give it out than it would be to buy fresh fruits and vegetables and give out.

That was AMAZING!!! Soooo many FAT, OBESE children, the very last thing they need to do is stuff their face with candy.

 

Last night, I went to a bar a female friend was working at. I walked in and said "What do you have that is both Zero carb and No caffeine?... Do you have spirite Zero?" They had nothing of the sorts. All diet with caffeine, or Sprite and 7up which had no caffeine but quite a few carbs ..

 

This time i drove down / not walked so I couldn't have the carbs and it was 8pm at night and i'm getting old (34) So I couldn't have the caffeine or I would never be able to go to sleep, So in the end I just had a glass of water.

 

One reason i'm not even giving out Halloween candy is, what happens to the left overs? YOU EAT IT!

American kids aren't overweight because of candy. certainly not candy alone and certainly not on one day a year. 

 

they're fat because their parents feed them crap food and feed them to much food. primarily the to much part, and don't make them play outside anymore.

"Alright -- drop and give me 20 pushups -- then you get the candy." :laugh:
