Is it possible the hospitals are at "capacity" because of the hypertensive diabetic obesity epidemic in the United States? I think this whole thing is nothing but theater.

You could look up hospitalization rates and how they've spiked during the pandemic, but I'm sure you find it easier to just choose to believe whatever you want.

/And no, there has not been a sudden massive surge of diabetes in the last few months


My wife is a nurse. I have to hear all about it because she constantly complains about work. One thing is beyond debate ... there is definitely an epidemic of morbidly obese people in the United States. This condition alone should be considered a pandemic.

toraque: Chain Smokes Freely: I've spent a fair amount of time in Rhode Island. The population is not a very healthy population. Lots of drinkers, drug addicts, processed food consumers.

Lots of people who chain smoke?


I said drug addicts. And that is a firm affirmative ... lots of heavy smokers. So far I haven't seen too many news articles about vegan fitness freaks dying from COVID. There is the odd super-stimulus headline about a 20-something who died "of COVID" but when you read deeper you find out there was an undiagnosed (sp?) heart condition or something, so the death was really "with COVID".

Don't misunderstand me. I do not think COVID is a hoax. I just think it's a fraud by over-reaction.

Somebody is going to have huge heating bills.


I dunno; packing it full of feverish patients will give you ~50kW of free heat as a baseline. Throw in some electronics and onsite food prep, and you will probably do better than a medium office building for oil/gas use.

Stibium: Chain Smokes Freely: I would argue that we are addressing the epidemic of morbid obesity. We are throwing everything we have at them to try to protect them.

"If you look at the United States of America with our epidemic of obesity as it were, with the number of people with hypertension, with the number of people with diabetes, if everyone got infected, the death toll would be enormous and totally unacceptable," Dr. Fauci said.

I would argue that if you were actually trying to argue in good faith that you were literally a moron. But I know you aren't arguing in good faith so it's all good. Bland, weak, and transparently obvious. Honestly it's just a self-reflection of an insipid and pathetic nihilist who doesn't believe in anything except his immediate surroundings.It's like all the stinking desperation of trying to act like a good lil' MAGAt with none of Trump's aplomb: very sad and low energy.You must be one of the new guys!


I've spent a fair amount of time in Rhode Island. The population is not a very healthy population. Lots of drinkers, drug addicts, processed food consumers. It's not a bad faith argument to question why the world should lock down to protect people who have spend a lifetime killing themselves. The other population at risk is the elderly population, but even there the mortality rate is low. In fact, a majority of the people who have died with COVID in this population are older than the life expectancy age.

lolmao500: bobbyjoebobby: Stibium: Bennie Crabtree: If you look at the racial demography for covid victims you get a pretty decent idea of the obesity demography for North America. There is a correlation.

No, you don't. Blacks are twice as likely to die versus whites, despite blacks being not only a minority but only 10% more likely to be obese. Have you actually looked at racial demographics of covid and obesity? It literally took me longer to write this than it did to find the statistics.

If you looked at maps with poverty, poor social infrastructure, and historical racism you'll find that a lot of fat people live there. It's literally more correct for me to say that coronavirus and voting for Republicans has more correlation than covid to obesity.

Big is beautiful. Why you fat shaming people? It's ok to be obese. Big is beautiful. Just a body type.

Yeah sure. Obese people never existed before Murica in all of human history. Obese people are not normal. They have mental issues. Basically every single obese people I've known in my life was deeply sad and literally ate their feelings, eating is the only comfort they have... and of course by the time they get obese and ugly, you get rejected even more and you eat even more. its a never ending cycle until the mental part is there.

Obesity kills a million people a year and people are still in denial thats its a problem. Denying your mental illness and the effects it has on your body is good and all but it doesnt solve shiat.


And the reason you blame obesity and not your company is?

You don't get it. Everyone wears masks around here with zero drama. Thanksgiving was via Zoom, and I cooked the first turkey in my life. Christmas is cancelled, and probably New Years. We take this stuff seriously, and we are getting level-decked with this thing. I'm grounding my aged parents, I will be doing their shopping, as my little nuclear family all caught it in April and have mostly recovered. Antibodies, I hope. But my Dad had both his knees replaced before the Surge, and has to have physical therapists come three times a week. They all wear masks, and direct the exercises from across the room. We stand in line at target to get in.

That's how we do in Rhode Island.

It's going to be a bloodbath in Texas and Florida. The Little Red States with isolated communities sooo far away from any hospital and incompetent leadership have no idea what's coming for them. This thing is going to kill more Americans than WWII.

This is not a new problem that has spiked in the last few months.

Unless the argument you're making is 'Covid isn't dangerous, it only kills people I don't like' which says more about you than the ongoing pandemic.

I seriously don't understand everyone's logic.
We are completely opposed to universal health Care.
We're also opposed to even the idea of letting citizens buy Medicare.
the emergency room can't let you die but once they stabilize you they can send you home to die.
we're perfectly content to let people not have healthcare even if that shortens their life and/or causes amputations.
Given the above facts undeniable actual effects this doesn't match our behavior of bothering with field hospitals.
Are you going to still charge me an arm and a leg for visiting a field hospital?

Just nuke the right wing media machine from orbit, string up all the scumbags on there who spread lies and disinfo on purpose.

Then do the same to republicans in congress and the 50 states legislatures and you'll be well on your way.

At least 70% of anti-maskers wouldnt exist if it wasnt for Trump and the right wing media machine.
