Bill Clinton to World's Poor: "Let Them Eat Rice"

Bill Clinton, who knows a thing or two about obesity, is making reducing obesity in the U.S. and the world a top priority. His nemesis? The rapid drop in food prices that has occurred over the last 50 years. You know, the reason we have more people in the world and less starvation. I thought that was a good thing.
Clinton said the United Kingdom and India were also addressing a rise in obesity. Economic conditions including the low cost of meals, particularly at fast-food restaurants, have contributed to the epidemic, he said.

"The only thing that's gone up less than the rate of inflation in the last decade are clothes, consumer electronics and food," Clinton said. "In some cases, a meal out is the only vacation working people have."
Yeah, working people never go to the beach. Or an amusement park. All they do is eat. And drink. And fuck. They're like savages. Good thing there's enlightened people in the world like Bill Clinton to force them to lose weight and make them live a civilized life. We wouldn't want people wasting their lives away taking their families to Outback when they should be at home watching Michael Moore movies and eating caviar and tofu.
