    I thought as much.

    Loads. Just not to death. You can starve without dying.

    You guys must have never been to a city in your life, or scene a homeless person...

    Ever heard of Appalachia? Theirs plenty of starving white ppl their maybe that would make you care...
    more idiocy. obesity is a far worse problem for the poor than starving

    and do you believe that the kid who makes top grades owes the school more than the kid who has bad grades?

    I don't owe society any more than some slacker.

    I pay rent for those roads, those pipes, those electric lines, and those cops. Can we say that of you? Of everybody that uses them?

    Please try to address the questions you were asked ....

    How did I not prove it? How did you disprove it? Oh wait you didn't... You just argued you dont remember ppl being hungry and that the dictionary is wrong... Hilarious.

    And the school thing is untrue. I know plenty of kids that were ambitious and got a really poor education still...

    Your a denier.... Bet you don't believe in anthropomorphic climate change either.... Bet you think "well it got cold!"

    I did. And you don't pay nearly enough. No one does. That's why were in this crisis we are. Denial will not help.

    Oh and yea I pay taxes too... Difference is I don't try to lower them to a comically low level that starves the system of revenue.

    Can we say the same of you? I think not...

    Not for the absolute poor. And yes obesity is a real issue too that is caused by predatory corporations and severe lack of proper food regulations.

    you have backtracked from STARVING to hungry

    Nice FAIL

    STARVE: SUFFER SEVERELY OR DIE FROM HUNGER

    sorry millions were not starving in the USA under Eisenhower

    its amazing how you can blame anyone but those who are fat for their condition

    listen-stop whining and stop blaming others for your lot

    You probably don't want to go there ... you're way out of bounds in your assumptions. They do have the same opportunities that I had ... I came from where they are. The difference was I used it as a motivator, they use it as an excuse.
