    …but D.C. is seldom a reality show.

    In the military/industrial complex there are hundreds of billions if not a trillion or two wrapped up in that.

    Sadly, Congress seems unable to tell the difference between “Fat”, and “Pork”!

    “The ‘fat American’ isn’t true”
    You obviously don’t live in Michigan!

    I read about a study that suggested that slightly overweight person may have a lower mortality rate than someone of normal or underweight. However the study was flawed in that the group of normal or underweight persons included cancer and terminally ill patients, whom already have a shorter than average life expectancy.

    I have to agree with Ima. It’s beyond absurd that some people in this country are dying of health issues related to eating too much while others literally starve to death. I read an estimate somewhere that around the world, 1 person dies of starvation every 4 seconds. Just some food for thought.

    Its about obesity. You can eat $.99 cheeseburgers all day everyday and still be fat. Its all about empty calories.

    Ima said, “It has the biggest union membership state in the country. No ‘right to work’ law.”

    When you don’t have much money you have to be frugal in what you can purchase. So they tend to get cheap food not the healthiest. That can make you fat and still unhealthy.

    Wow. Ima thinks that Michican is “Democrats from top to bottom?” What the hell? He’s a bigger idiot than I thought. Michigan’s Republican governor, Republican senate, and Republican house have been in the news ALL YEAR. Please, if you are SO IGNORANT, please LEARN SOMETHING before you WASTE OUR TIME.

    @Ms. Ima

    WOW!!!!!!
    I’ve known for a long time you lacked intelligence, but WOW!!!!! You are stupid, not ot mention ignorant.


    Michigan has been in NATIONAL news regarding our lame duck republicans passing “Right to Work” (right to benefit from others’ work/dues without paying for it yourself) legislation.
    Michigan has a very corporate friendly / citizen unfriendly republican controlled state government NOT “Democrats from top to bottom.”
    State Senate – 26 Reps/11 Dems/1 vacancy
    State HoR – 59 Reps/51 Dems
    Governor – Former CEO of Gateway – worthless corporatist republican
    And as of Nov. 2012 Michigan ranked 6th, not the " Highest unemployment in the country."
    AS for high taxes, our average income tax rate ranks #26 in the nation, our sales tax of 6% certainly is not the highest in the country, in fact there are 33 states with a higher sales tax rate, and we don’t tax groceries, basic needs for human life.

    Poorer people eat foods that are not healthy, but do add weight. Just because a person is obese does not mean they are getting enough of the food they need. They can be starving of the vitamins and minerals they need.

    Obesity is choice. Pure and simple.

    Instead of carbs, eat vegetables. You’ll lose lbs. And save money.

    @corzak

    Having enough money isn’t a choice. And it is rarely “pure and simple” except among the simple minded. Also compassion is needed too.
    -
    Vegetables cost money and don’t last long. I can’t eat fresh vegetables every meal. Neither can they. I know they are important but I have financial limits. Now that is simple to understand isn’t it?
