Another component of our glorious new marxist nation is obese homeless. Yes, you read correctly.
A new survey finds that one in three homeless people in Boston are clinically obese, a number that casts in relief the strange reality of food in the 21st century United States.
Not long ago, malnourishment was embodied by emaciation. Now it’s far more likely to be hidden in folds of fat.
“This study suggests that obesity may be the new malnutrition of the homeless in the United States,” wrote the researchers, led by Harvard Medical School student Katherine Koh, in an upcoming Journal of Urban Health study.
Obesity is the new emaciation. Unearned luxury is the new poverty. Not caring is the new concern. We're in a national death spiral.
"Nice to see my taxes created this."
Obviously the answer is to take away our freedoms. No more having that evil sugar soda. That should solve this.
We're going to reach a tipping point, probably sooner than later, where the productive members of society are outnumbered by obese, designer clothes wearing "poor." When this happens, the house of cards is crashing down. I just hope we use this "do over" to get it right next time.
