The people you are talking about are a small subsection of obese people who aren't that way through disability or medication. It's not fair to just declare them all idle, feckless parasites. And to be frank I'd be more than a little surprised to discover that none of the people who just sit around being fat and getting 'everything' are unhappy with their predicament. Learned helplessness is one explanatory phenomenon you might want to consider.
