    Americans are buffet warriors like Steven Seagal

    This is a HUGE problem in the Army and Air force. There are now fast food restaurants on base and soda machines everywhere. And weight isn’t as enforced as it should be (in the higher ranks) since all of the First Sgt are all fat and the officers are all fat as well. So they do not want to enforce weight reg’s because they are out of reg’s. I have seen so many soldiers who are fat and out of shape and can barely pass their PT. It’s disgusting.

      I think binge drinking adds to it as well. I was definitely guilty of it when I was in and I only knew maybe a handful of people who didn’t drink.

    • Posted by Justanother fancy screenname, at Reply

      @FLGSC Yes a lot of bases have fast food now on the bases or right by the bases. It’s gotten really bad. And the mess hall is disgusting as well. Butter in everything and oil. On the bright side at least many have soy milk options. Which is kinda a step up.

    And Trump is worried about transgender people costing them money. Turns out Bubba from Mobile Alabama is probably going to cost even more.

      Not really, California’s obesity rate of 25% means it’s fat people would be the 8th most populated state in the country!

      Actually it was more because the Union had more than twice the men. The casualty rate for the Union wa also much higher than that of the Confederacy.

      dbg0206091 “most of the military comes from those shithole states”
      That explains a lot.

    And yet Conservatives (especially in the south) always throw a fit about “lowering standards” for women and gays and trans folk. The problem is clearly not the women or the gays or the transfolk, it’s the fat inbred Red staters.

    • Posted by First Last, at Reply

      Mike Benko lol 😂

    • Posted by Robert Johnson, at Reply

      Or maybe blacks and Latinos Democrats living in red states too “Among U.S. adults, Black and Latino populations have substantially higher rates of obesity than do White populations. This is true among both men and women.” Go ahead google “Special Report State of Obesity Racial and Ethnic Disparities.

    Its the irony of ironies. Southern conservative states, like the ones mentioned in this clip, are the ones that tout their patriotism the most, and erroneously equate patriotism with blind support for the military, and yet it is precisely many of these southern conservative states where a large percentage of their population cannot fulfill what, according to them, is their most patriotic duty – fighting for our armed forces. Maybe it is time that these people stop associating patriotism with picking up a M4 rifle for their country, and instead start associating it with putting down their soda, candy bar, and Pop Tart. The biggest threat to our nation is NOT Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, Boko Haram, ISIS the Taliban, etc. etc. Tabulate all the American lives that these have groups have taken and it does not come close to the death toll wrought by diet and lifestyle choices which culminate in obesity. The same goes for domestic crime and any deaths that come from federal government overreach. Conservatives constantly bemoan the need to defend themselves from violent criminals and a tyrannical government, and those are the reasons given as to why they practically fetishize their guns, and yet what is statistically the most likely culprit to kill paranoid Billy Bob is not armed criminals invading his home or government trying to infringe on his freedoms. No, what is most likely to kill Billy Bob is calcified plague invading his arteries, and high blood sugar infringing on the proper functioning of his endocrine system.

      True that

      So stop trying to take their guns and try to take their cheese burgers instead… you know, if you really want to save life’s…

  11. Posted by Drake Santiago, at Reply

    So conservatives, remember that the next time you lament about the government infringing on your freedoms, and supposedly coming for your guns, or ISIS taking over the country, be sure to remember this: The greatest threat to your life, limb and liberty is not The White House. It is the Waffle House. It is not ISIS. It is IHOP.

      I laughed harder than I should have. Most of the conservatives and white supremacists I’ve met are fat sloppy fucks.

      It’s peacetime. It’s important to have fun during peacetime. Get fat men. Get fatter. Get fat as FK. Yes…you may die younger…but you’ll have enjoyed your life. Don’t live as a domesticated cat only to live longer. Don’t put yourself through that horror. Many dead boys never made it past the age of 21 to give you your freedoms. If they were alive, they’d be partying, too – and hard. Hard is the man way! Load up on the burgers, steaks and fries. You only pass once. Pay homage to all those dead boys that died for your liberties. Live life to the fullest! Live hard…Party hard! WOO-HOO!

    I find this very troubling and not funny at all. I have said, instead of America locking up and killing young fit black men they should entice them to join the military by courting them at age 16.

    • Posted by numaTruehome 100, at Reply

      So what you are saying is that the people who are being killed for their skin color are actually superior and their murders are commited out of petty jelousy, thus they should be treated with respect as the protectors of America? Or, you are thinking instead of Americans of white complection and swastikas murderering and terrorizing people of various skintones of their fellow americans, they should instead coax people of different skin tones to take care of their ethnic clensing tactics by shipping people overseas to fight and kill other people, and quite possibly get themselves killed by appealing to some weird devision mentality of “hey, you’re an american, but you have black skin, so go fight for everybody, but do it so that instead of police hypocritically killing their fellow american (who are again black), you will instead have the chance to kill other people who hate americans regardless of what they look like.” it was a little sickenning writting that line of reasoning down.

      Baltimore TURK As long as the 16 year old white boys go first. Boot camp will get their little fat asses into shape. Lazy rednecks.

    In America, being poor is a crime. And if you are provided junk food (aka pet food), and harms your health to the point of chronic diseases, it’s once again you own fault.
    Bottom line. Don’t eat any processed foods. They now add sugar into orange juice! And still dare to call it all natural! 6 teaspoons of sugar in a 6 oz cup of yogurt! More sugar in your salad dressing and BBQ sauce than soda! Americans down 10 cups of sugar per week in their daily intake of ‘regular’ foods.
    There is nothing healthy about kids cereals, instant oatmeals, microwaveable popcorn, PB and J sandwiches, much less any type of white bread. American cheese is slices of processed oil.
    Milk is unhealthy for consumption by human adults. Beef has a new strain of E Coli growing within the live cattle now and the FDA tried to pass it off as a safe form of E Coli.
    The rich eat the best cuts and healthiest yields of produce, while the rest of us can eat the scraps.
    GMO corn…stay the hell away from it, as well as GMO soybeans. Dangerous to health and those who claim otherwise need to stop listening to corporate Monsanto shirts. These ‘scientists’ and lobbyists are paid to lie to us just like every other incident of corporate deceit.
