Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

The massive obesity started not long after LBJ took office (1963) and his expanded welfare. And every year since then welfare has gotten even more prolific as politicians have sought to buy votes.

Welfare moved the poor people out of the cotton fields, off the farms, out of the factories, and other laborious jobs, and has subsequently provided them with free food. (I noticed a sticker on boiled, peeled shrimp and crab legs in Kroger yesterday that said "SNAP card eligible".)

And, of course, all of those Federal, state, and county/municipal jobs that have been created are "sit behind a desk and snack all day jobs".

A few years ago I used to go to Hanover, NH a few times a year, and I never saw a fat person there. What I saw was people jogging and walking and riding bikes everywhere. And they didn't have anywhere for me to buy fried chicken.
The way we eat has changed and the way we work and play has also changed.

That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Yes, mostly driven by our need to eat in order to stay alive.
And we get all of the free or cheap, fattening food we want without having to do manual labor (exercise) from daylight to dark 6 days a week like our ancestors did.

I thought Florida was fat until I lived a couple years in the Midwest.

Obesity is a national security problem. It would be difficult to fill the military requirements if we got in a major conflict.
