    Do you have any idea how many children in the US are actually malnourished? The most common nutrition problem with children, according to the NYT, is obesity.

    You can whinge all you want, but we cannot pay for the world you want by spending government money on programs that you like. If it worked that way Europe would be a cultural paradise where everyone is healthy, fit, and happy. They are actually worse off than the US in almost every category, yet some people think they can make it work here because they are smarter than anyone who tried it in Europe.

    You aren't.
