    You’re confusing dieting with healthcare. Healthcare means the care of your health overall. That includes your diet, living safely, catching disease early, and so on.

    No, I'm not confused at all. As always, you're just dishonest, dishonorable, and completely full of shit.

    Your attempt at humor is lost on a Raging Asshole like myself.

    Hey Dean,

    You live in Chi-town and your State of Illinois is not yellow nor green, so are you one of those fate people making Illinois Orange?

    Worry about the health of your own City ( Chicgao ) before worrying about Kentucky...

    Obese people should pay higher insurance premiums. It's so easy to exercise and eat both organically and healthy. So so easy.

    If we nationalize health care, should obese people pay higher taxes?

    Why don't you take care of own health in the first place?

    Are you unable to do it?

    Take your meds, Dean. Self medicating is not working for you. This is the most unhinged you've ever been

    There are a number of things that are contributing to obesity in the country.

    Our society is more technology driven and we don't do as much manual labor.......which means our lifestyles have become less mobile. People work longer hours and spend less time with family and friends. We sit in front of computers or televisions or iphones and socialize.

    Additionally, how we grow, manufacture, package, and preserve our food is less natural. Adding steroids to our livestock, adding preservatives to our food is also a contributing factor. Drinking has also increased across the spectrum.

    We have set ourselves up to fail.

    I feel fatter just sitting here and typing this out. lol

    Before I'd spend my weekends hiking but I blew my knee out in July during a white water rafting trip and haven't successful rehabilitated it yet. I'll probably have to go in for surgery but work has me on the road more than I'm home.
