The courts have determined that obesity itself is not a disability and as such you can be fired for not performing even if your obesity was a factor.

This could pave the way for preventing disability, or other forms of public assistance being issued out to the morbidly obese.

But they have a lot of "condishuns" that are viewed as such. We need to make obesity induced ones not eligible.

The biggest problem I have with that is that obesity doesn't have it's own set of condishuns- these are real diseases that SOME people unfortunately get for no reason. If there was a way to separate the real from the self-inflicted then we would be so much better off.
