Comment of the Week

“Mark, I’ve been reading this site for 10 years now and do believe this is a treasure trove. However, the idea that any type of ‘mandate’ would ever be a good idea, let alone coincide with the general ideals of personal choice touted on this blog, is patently absurd. No matter if exercise is a good thing. Everyone has the right to self determination. If that means a ‘sedentary life style’ (due to any conceivable situation, such as working 3 jobs to pay the bills), then so be it. In a time when busy-bodies seek to micromanage those around them rather than remove the splinters from their own eyes, I’m dismayed to see that and ‘exercise mandate’ would even enter this blogs forum.”

-I agree with you on mandates. I was just curious to see what other people thought.
