GLENN: By the way, can you imagine a country where the government regularly checks on the waistline of you? If you are over 40, I need to check your waist. Excuse me? If you are deemed too fat by the government, you are required to take diet counseling. If you fail to lose sufficient weight, you could face further "Reeducation" and you'll be subject to stiff fines. Now, this is when I think -- this is what I say is coming if we get government healthcare. Because they have a good case. If we're going to take care of you, you have to take care of yourself. If we're going to go out and put out in the pocket, you've got to take care of yourself. And "Put the fries down for you. Not good for you, fatty-fat-fatso. Get on that treadmill or no healthcare for you." And a lot of Americans will say that's good. A lot of Americans will say, "Oh, that's great." A lot of Americans will also say that will never happen, we'll never get into that situation. We're just going to get free healthcare and it will be exactly the way it is right now. Glenn is always reeducation camps, please. I'm going to go for diet counseling and then they are going to force me to get onto a treadmill. It's actually what's happening now in Japan and the Japanese government argues exactly the argument that I have been saying is coming and that is we're paying for the healthcare costs. The British government has banned television ads for eggs on the grounds that they are promoting an unhealthy lifestyle. Egg sellers, you don't have the right to advertise. You're cigarettes. In New Zealand a Welsh submarine cable specialist was banned from entering the country on grounds that his obesity would impose significant costs on New Zealand's health or special education services. So he was not allowed to immigrate to New Zealand until he lost weight. But his wife couldn't lose the weight and so she couldn't get in. Germany, citizens who failed to cooperate are branded as antisocial for costing the government billions of dollars or Euros in medical expenses. So they found yet another demon: The fat people. By the way, I'm only bringing this up because have you looked at us lately? Have you seen how fat we are? Drudge Report said that most Americans, the obese Americans now outnumber the overweight Americans. You can't be a burden to society. Many American cities are now banning restaurants from selling foods with transfats. Los Angeles has proposed a moratorium on new fast food restaurants in south LA. Other California cities banned smoking in private residence. California has outlawed after school as a part of zero-tolerance ban on selling sugar products at a campus. David Paterson, the governor of New York, has proposed an 18% tax on sugar sodas and juice drinks. Appeared that's not in schools. That's everywhere. 18% tax. And state officials have not ruled out additional taxes on cheeseburgers and other foods deemed unhealthy. By the way, I just had the best cheeseburger. Stu, have you seen the cheeseburger that we've been sending out for lately? It's from, like --
STU: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: Good Burger?
STU: That's the biggest hamburger I've ever seen in my life.
GLENN: It is the best hamburger I've ever had. Is that a chain outside of New York?
STU: I don't know if it's outside of New York, but I'm thinking it might be a chain.
GLENN: Oh, Stu, you're a stupid vegetarian. This is worth getting sick over and wretching.
GLENN: Oh, so good. Good Burger, can you look it up?
STU: Yeah, it's Good Burger NY. So I would assume it is a New York franchise.
GLENN: Unbelievable. We should send these to listeners. We'll just send you a cheeseburger in the mail. You know, Louie's Lunch is the inventor of the hamburger in New Haven. This is the only thing that I can even put in that category. It's that good.
GLENN: It's that good.
STU: There are five locations, all of them in New York City. Sorry, rest of the world.
GLENN: Well, capitalism, until they shut you down because of obesity and global warming and, you know, you have to pay for that cow tax, you should have one of these. You should go into the Good Burger business. You should get a franchise because they are fantastic. Or you should just do what I do and just go eat them and just get just fat as a house.
