Obamacares partially read fiats, already under fire for forcing restaurants and vending machine operators to affix calorie labels to offerings, also mandate informing the public about calories burned during certain activities, according to the latest fatwa, issued today, by the Department of Health and Human Services.
The fatwa requires Any business, institution, municipality, or other entity to place signage in no less than 14 languages, which must include Spanish, Urdu, and any three varieties of Pidgin English, within two vertical feet and five linear feet of escalators, elevators, and moving walkways, inter alia, informing the public on how many calories ambulating or climbing a stairwell in place of utilizing available powered transportation will consume.

How many calories are burned during an armed insurrection against tyrants?
Up to all that you have.
I have a better proposal: make a successful fitness test mandatory to get any kind of government benefit, tax refund or a government job.
Well, it all depends on how fat is the tyrant; not so much on how long does it burn...
If those signs start appearing I will bring along a backside view of Michelle’s fat ass to tape over the sign.
Why not just tax elevators, escalators and moving sidewalks? s/
My personal favorite signs are the braille signs at the drive through at my bank. They can only be reached from the drivers seat so I’m trying to imagine a blind person driving up and groping around for the instructions in braille. There are also brail signs at my gym at about 4 1/2 feet right in the middle of the wall which say “no male over the age of three” as you go into the women’s dressing room. So I’m trying to imagine a blind mother (since a four year old male couldn’t reach that high) moving her hands all over this 6X6 foot wall area to make sure she had read the braille. She then has to say, sorry sweetie but you have to go into the men’s locker room. And of course, since she’s blind, why wouldn’t she be able to take her son into the men’s locker room as long as she wasn’t changing?
Will they have to hire more bureaucrats and create a Department of Signs and Notices, or can they just go with this one
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
Fitness, IQ, civics, and foundational history.
Common sense rarely plays a role in leftist topdown diktats.
Common sense is letting the individual have too much sovereignty.
The cited article is obviously a satire.
I have a hip replacement so I'm in a similar situation.Perhaps we should begin chanting "no justice,no peace!"
This is why Monty Python’s Flying Circus was one of the greatest TV comedies ever.
Britain had already descended to this level of Socialist lunacy by the late 1960’s. Providing a virtually bottomless barrel of material.
I checked the site. I think this is satire. All the other stories at the site are Onion like stories.
Don’t forget Ebonics.
“They can only be reached from the drivers seat “
I always figured they could be reach by a blind passenger in the back seat, driver’s side.
I think it’s satire, too, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it were true. I would never have thought that losing your job could be spun into something good & desirable for society..........
Even though it appears to be satire I would still look at whose relative owns a sign or placard company.
Please, tell me this is satire.
Yet, sadly, O’care is so screwed up that some people will accept it, without question, as truth.
true, that’s why I stated “if those signs do appear”. I certainly haven’t ginned up any printing presses to print piles of those pictures.
This was 20 years ago. Sounds to me like all those people who have had it in their minds to control people have found a way to do it. And, get it codified in law.
I will leave with one thought - when our Founders began the Declaration of Independence with "We the People" they put us and our collective common sense into major play. WE are the People and our country is not theirs for the picking, otherwise our document would have read: Some of us who are Tyrants.
Will the advisory come in braille and spoken word too?
My My,, we are such a feeble nation
We all need guidance and counsel at every exit and entrance of this land.
too bad illegals don’t pay attention.
Wonder if Air Force One has signage on it about better MPG?
“The cited article is obviously a satire.”
You must admit, it’s getting more and more difficult to detect this.
I guess that they could if the driver pulled up.
How many calories are in a boob belt? Moochelle needs to stop eating them.
Electric bills should come come with an advisory measuring blood pressure reductions possible through obama impeachment and incarceration.
It is ... for now!
OMG! do these people know no
nevermind, i know the answer...
this is NOT America!
You’re right - that’s a major oversight likely to be met with stiff penalties ...
I’ll use the elevator or esclator and they can shove the stairs up their backside!
besides I need to put on 20 pounds.
