    Keep that denial up guys and im sure if you close your eyes for long enough it will be the 1950's again and we can all go bowling and have milkshakes at the local diner and America will be NO1 again....
    Sorry, but did I miss a proposal for how this can be remedied in your post? Or are you just ranting?

    A 40 Year old car that is still running requires love the impoverished cant afford. You would have had a stronger argument with a mid 90's Civic, and still yes my answer is NO they don't get my sympathy.

    its an opinion piece....

    Yes. A poor diet and living in a community which does not lend itself to getting outdoors much will indeed help make one fat. My kids tell me that cell phones are part of life today and you cannot be without one. So why would this be different for all people? Big screen TV's - yes, I imagine people do buy them.

    And all this means what exactly?

    Here's some proof.

    It means many aren't as "poor" as one might think.

    "self-righteously-induced departure from reality"

    Could not have put it better myself!
    You guys are right the poor dont need our pity or help I mean its not like they didnt get taught nutritional information in there under funded public school so they would know what to eat to stay healthy and I mean its not like they didnt have lessons on how to propely handle money, to save and how to build their credit instead of living pay check to pay check......

    Like I said before keep denying it exists and im sure it will all go away.

    Parasites never go away, they simply adapt to the situation.

    No, rather biology and sociology over millenniums.
