We are all bullies now: Jennifer Livingston, meet Kenneth Krause, Liberal, Atheist, Secular Humanist

fat americans

When one person calls another person fat, that is bullying. When the government calls two thirds of America’s citizenry fat, we call that being ‘socially concerned.’ Who elected this government?
