Prader-Willi Syndrome
In the old days, Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) was known as gluttony and was a sin.  They still are gluttons, but by inventing a disease, the socialists have liberated them from having any personal sense of responsibility for their problem.  Now it is a disability and their housing and life's needs are paid for by the taxpayers of Massachusetts and Framingham.  PWS is not a disease that can be cured. It is a lifetime condition. The same applies to alcoholics and drug users.

In due time, these people become immobile and can no longer feed themselves and need enablers to feed them.

This is a chromosone disorder, a genetical disorder or disease or condition like cardiovascular disease or cancer.  How come these people aren't being helped by the benevolence of the state?  How can our state representatives like Tom Sannicandro, and Karen Spilka support this? Because Framingham voters support these idiots. I also believe that each of these reps have relatives with special needs.... a liberal term that means that you the taxpayer, pays for their needs.  The real genius of democracy is that the voters are ultimately to blame.

As a victim of diverticulitis resulting in a laparoscopic colectomy to remove eight inches of my large intestines, I consider myself a qualified expert on gluttony.  I've paid the price and dropped my weight by changing my diet for the remainder of my life. But, I'm not out of the woods yet.

Now, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, through its contractor, The Advocates, Inc. has entered the weight loss business like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem. As is usual, the government is doing it at a staggering loss, while the others do it for a profit. The Advocates claims to get close to $85,000 per client per year. That's a lot of tax free food.

There is no cure for this condition and the gluttons will have to be cared for, for the remainder of their lives, That could be forty (40) years at $85,000 per year of $3.3 million dollars each. Nice benefits for the gluttons. Even better than lifetime prison sentences. Three or more square meals a day at our expense for life.  Perhaps, it would be cheaper if we offered them bariatric or gastric bypass surgery. If they refuse, let them eat cake at their own expense.

Given that there are so many fat and grossly obese people in our society, I'd like to see proof of a chromosone disorder or genetical disorder before I come close to the idea of feeding gluttons. I was born a cynic and will not believe in things that I cannot actually see thru my eyes.

  • PWS people will never really hold decent jobs.  Who wants to hire obese people who have greater health care requirements.  Companies have to buy larger chairs to support them and may have to deal with ADA specs for restrooms for people with wide stances.

  • PWS people will gravitate (or sink) towards jobs in the food industry where they can eat into any profits.  Look for them in the cheese and meat sections, not in the fruits/vegetables section.

  • Every PWS person being supported by the public should get bariatric ( gastric bypass ) surgery instead of feeding off the state for the remainder of their miserable lives. Cost is $25,000 to $50,000.

  • The public feeding of PWS people lends a whole new meaning to pigs feeding at the public trough. I guess it's no longer the teachers unions at the public trough.

  • As PWS people waddle on to an aircraft, they will share their errant flesh with you when it oozes out of their seats, perhaps even in first class seating.

  • Some PWS people will reek of human excrement because they cannot wipe their ass since their arms cannot actually reach their backsides.  This is a common problem with grossly obese people.

  • PWS people require longer needles when getting injections to penetrate the abundant and bountiful flesh they have.

  • PWS people will use the rolling cranes now used at Framingham Union Metrowest hospital to be lifted in and out of bed.

  • Some PWS people are sometimes simply too fat to be XRayed unless the power is turned up.

  • If the PWS patient is way too fat to be Xray'ed, they are referred to the local zoo or Sea World because they have veterinary facilities fit for the medical needs of big mammals like everyone’s favorite- Shamu, the killer whale.

  • The $9.99 All You Can Eat Buffet will disappear in any community that supports PWS people.

  • PWS people will be pleased by the Big and Tall stores that carry the Hindenberg Collection of clothing.

    Some bigger ones cause an increase in worldwide textile demand when ordering clothes.

  • Airlines should have a test seat before boarding an aircraft. If your fat PWS ass does not fit, then you are too fat to fly. You will be directed to bulk air cargo carriers.

  • At the local carnivals, PWS children are not allowed to ride the ponies.  Given that PWS children may actually weigh more than the ponies, they may cause substantial injuries to the ponies and may also eat the ponies.

    Some carnivals come equipped with Clydesdale horses as a pony substitute.

  • Stores that offer the Hindenberg Collection of mumus consider PWS clients their best.

  • When PWS people go food shopping at Stop & Shop, you are likely to hear an announcement message on the store intercom that says All baggers to the front, please!.

  • Can't Framingham solve it's deer overpopulation problem by giving every PWS person a bow and arrow and a deer hunting license.  These people are very determined to hunt and eat.

  • Do you really want to be a pall bearer for a PWS person?  Do you have a strong back?

  • The next time you Walk for Hunger, think about who is really hungry? Prader-Willi Syndrome is synonymous to The Hunger That Never Dies.... at least until it gorges itself to death..

As for myself, I suffer from compassion fatigue.

Compassion fatigue comes from endless requests to fund and care for every wet, hungry, overeating, cleft lipped, club footed, facially deformed, crippled, mentally retarded, brain damaged, lazy, indolent, drug using, alcoholic, autistic, bipolar person in the world.

When you see obese people, you can tell they may have multiple personalities.... such as Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker, the Pillsbury Doughboy, Hagen and Daz, and Sara Lee, amongst others....
