Obesity goes hand in hand with the underclasses. Where wealth gives access to a variety of recreational activities, food is the one of the few recreational activities of the underclasses—food and, of course, drugs and sex.
“...then they came for the fat people and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t fat...”
Wait a minute! The DemocRATS have been telling us for the past two weeks that America’s children are all starving to death because of “poverty”. I thought starving children were skinny. What the hell gives here?!
I really like that White House in the middle.
With a little paint, some new doors, windows, and landscaping it would look like THIS
