Chamberlain’s cowardly hypocrisy reanimated?

Pretending to not help Ukraine directly is just childish and immoral.

For example, handling the fighter planes for Ukraine like hot potatoes out of concern to “not to provoke Putin”. PUTIN DOES NOT NEED EXCUSES TO START THE WAR! He had shown it again and again.

The US government is discouraging people to volunteer because of “potential legal issues” LEGAL ISSUES?!! The existential war has started, which is a struggle between the world tyranny and the free world! And you are talking about the technicalities? SHAME ON YOU!

The world is in real danger of repeating the WWII scenario and you are talking about legal issues and trying not to anger a bloody madman?! Chamberlain’s cowardly hypocrisy reanimated?

If you have sacrificed my nation to preserve the peace of the world, I will be the first to applaud you. But if not, gentlemen, God help your souls.” Czechoslovakian foreign minister Jan Masaryk to Lord Halifax as reaction to announcement of allies’ betrayal in 1938.”

Putin cannot be allowed to succeed in Ukraine not just because of human suffering, but because, just like Hitler, Putin will not stop there. Moldova is next, and then Poland probably.

The whole Democratic world seems powerless to stop the genocide out of the fear of “provoking” a bloody tyrant. Again, Putin does not need “provocation” to start the war as he had proven time and time again. He will see hesitation of the West as weakness and that this childish play with the airplanes as ridiculous.

As the world watches in horror, public opinion is turning against the indecisiveness, the hypocrisy and the political games of the West.

Another infuriating problem. The West is expressing it’s outrage while buying oil and gas from the Putin regime. Can you imaging the Allies buying fuel from Nazi Germany? Europeans due to their foolish shortsightedness depend now on Russian oil and gas. Germany is shutting down ALL of its nuclear power stations and is in the process of activating a new gas pipeline from Russia.

God help us all


Do you remember how Israel ended the Gaza occupation and what happened afterwards. All the suicide bombing? All innocent civilians, children and mothers, fathers and grandparents? The “civilized” world has a short memory, but I remember! We remember.

The tragic loop

Rockets are falling on Israel. Again. And Again.

And the enlightened world is in shock, in horror.

Israel is doing it again. Israel is the culprit, the villain.

And I, the Jew expected that. We Jews are the oppressors, the bad guys.

Why? Would the world pity us if we would just let our enemies succeed?

But we, the Jews, promised our children: NEVER AGAIN! Never again. Can you hear me, can you hear Israel saying this to the world? Never again!

But I have a feeling of desperation, helplessness and a dark fear for this tragic nation both for me and for us.

I remember my childhood in the Soviet Union. Being called a dirty Jew since I remember myself, being bullied in the day camp, in technical school, in the Soviet Army for being a Jew!

I remember my father being arrested and incarcerated, sent to Siberia for being a Jewish writer.

I remember being a family of the “enemy of the people”

I remember drunks on the streets, in the bus, in a hotel spewing hate against Jews.

Was it my fault that I was born to Jewish parents, that I am a Jew?

But I am proud of being a Jew. I am proud of our accomplishments in science, arts and just about any aspect of today’s civilization.

I am proud of many Jewish accomplishments in the fight for human rights, for freedom, for the right cause.

So what do I feel hearing all these self righteous opinionated ignoramuses?

For me it is not theoretical knowledge and interpretation.

I grew up being a Jew, the one who lived through the millennia of persecutions and being proud of my people.

I am the Jew in Masada who killed my wife and children before killing myself rather than facing Roman enslavement.

I am the Jew who was bludgeoned to death by Cossacks in a shtetl in Russia.

I am the little kid that died from starvation in Auschwitz.

I am the mother who threw the baby over the fence of German concentration camp in the hope that somebody will pick up her baby and save it.

I am my grandparents who were dragged to the ravine near Lubonichi in Belarus and shot along with hundreds of other Jews. And buried (many still alive) by bulldozers.

I am the one who managed to survive the war, following my dream, and was able to get to Palestine, the land of my ancestors.

I am the one that fought desperate wars with Arabs who tried to kill those of us who survived the Nazis.

I am the one that with my blood and sweat built my, yes MY, nation from the ground up.

We, the Jews did not want to fight the Arabs. We just wanted to live, to love, to live in peace, to raise children. To be happy again, after thousand of years of persecutions, after the Holocaust.

But we were surrounded by sworn enemies that kept trying to do what countless enemies before tried to do and failed. Failed! Arabs wanted to destroy our country and to murder all of us.

And they failed! Why did they fail?

Golda Meir said that we the Jews have a secret weapon: we have nowhere to go.

I am the parent whose children were blown up, murdered by a Palestinian suicide bomber during the wedding.

Yes we the Jews love, cherish life. Islamic terrorists glorify death, being a martyr.

That is why they put their children in harm’s way, that is why mothers are proud of their terrorists children who were wearing explosives belts and died for Allah while killing the Jews.

I am the Israeli child that knows to run to the bomb shelter attached to school at the sound of siren.

I am this young girl walking with a rifle going to the grocery store.

Israel is constantly on alert. All the time, 24/7.

Just remember the Yom Kippur war.

Do you know, understand how hard it is for people to be on alert ALL THE TIME, to be ready to run into the shelter at the sound of the siren? To be woken up in the middle of the night, to grab your kids and to run for your lives?

For comparison, not to offend anybody: some Americans are complaining about “loss of freedom” for being forced to wear masks, screaming about being oppressed for not being able to go to the hairdresser..

Do you remember how Israel ended the Gaza occupation and what happened afterwards. All the suicide bombing? All innocent civilians, children and mothers, fathers and grandparents? The “civilized” world has a short memory, but I remember! We remember.

And I intend to do all I can to keep our promise to our children. Israel is the only place in the world where Jews are always accepted and welcome.

I love America, we came here over 40 years ago. But even here, in America, we see the rise in hate crimes. Not just against Jews, but also people of Asian descent.

Can fascism come to power here in the USA? Yes. It almost succeeded on January 6.

And then Israel will be our last hope.

Trump Test

Trump (unwillingly) exposed all the weaknesses of American democratic system. But his cult in Congress will not allow us to fix it. The future is uncertain, but it is up to “We the People” to build it.

I am an engineer and when a system/machine is designed it is going trough rigorous testing. Basically engineers are trying to break it to determine weak components. And system is going through many stages of redesign, fixing weak and vulnerable parts. No machine, no system can be designed perfectly. None.

The nature of our universe does not allow it.

Same with any human creation, including societies. Nothing is fully predictable, nothing is perfect. In America Founding Fathers tried their best to design our Democracy. They were trying to anticipate possible problems and protect the Democracy. But, of course, they were just humans. With all the flows and imperfections.

They did not anticipate Trump.

And Trump subjected our democracy to a severe stress test, shaking the whole system to a breaking point, showing how vulnerable is our Democracy. Trump and his mob inflicted severe damage to the fabric to our democratic system.

Now it is time to go back to the drawing board. System need repairs, it has to be redesigned. It needs stronger protection from stresses like trumpism.

Will it be done? I don’t know. We may be over the breaking point. Trump (unwillingly) exposed all the weaknesses of American democratic system.

But his cult in Congress will not allow us to fix it. The future is uncertain, but it is up to “We the People” to build it.


Lindsey Graham isn’t a leader, he’s an actor; playing a role in order to appease the critics and maintain power at all costs.

In 2016, Graham used the election year as an excuse to block the Republican-led Senate’s consideration of Obama appointee Merrick Garland to replace Antonin Scalia on the high court. After the media was swift to hold Graham’s 2016 words (and his 2018 words) against him as he requested, Graham on Saturday morning pointed to other, more recent comments he made to NBC News and The Hill.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (1933-2020). May her Memory be a Blessing

In her tiny fragile frame lay all of our hopes and dreams.

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Left me shaken, numb, gasping for air.

I thought she was indomitable.
She had beaten cancer four times.
She was an icon, a hero, a legend.
Her brilliance was staggering,
Her compassion endless.

In her tiny fragile frame lay all of our hopes and dreams.

Yet I, with misplaced confidence in all that is good, 
Ridiculously believed her fierce desire to live
And to make our country a land of equality and justice for all
Somehow had the power to conquer death itself
For at least for a few more months.I was sadly, terribly wrong.
The Notorious RBG is gone.She took her last breaths
At the very last moments
Of the Jewish Year 5780,
A truly dreadful year.

That year, thank God, is over.
And her legacy remains with us
As we enter 5781.Ruth Bader Ginsburg taught men at the highest levels of power – and they were all men in the days she began her crusade – that gender, like race, is a construct. That the differences between men and women had been magnified by culture and centuries of unquestioned belief into ridiculous stereotypes. That gender roles confined women and men into prisons of conformity and put hurdles in the way of our individual pursuits of happiness. That women could be the best lawyers and have the finest legal minds. That men could be the kindest parents and caregivers. That the government had no business forcibly assigning us into designated slots. That we are all human. That those who would forcibly delineate male or female roles for us were as damaging to human freedom as the radical authoritarian states that would choose our professions for us.RBG gave us freedom, the power to be ourselves. It is impossible to imagine the world we now live in without her. A world where women are taken seriously. Where we have a female Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates. Where I – as an openly gay man – am regularly criticized (as I should be!) for my thoughts, my words, and my deeds but virtually never any longer for my sexual orientation. Where my colleague Delegate Danica Roem serves well and ably and with the gender of her birth an afterthought. Where people with different physical and mental abilities are valued for their humanity; not their differences. Where the fact that I posted Hebrew at the top of this page, in knowing reverence to both Justice Ginsburg’s religious faith and my own, would not be seen as a barrier to our success but an honor to our connected affinity – a recognition that people of various religions, along with atheists and agnostics, have a lot more in common than the beliefs which divide us.I realize we are not quite there yet. We still face gender, racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic inequities. Under the current President, this inequality has been magnified. He openly attacks those who have been traditionally disparaged – women, minorities, immigrants, those with disabilities – with a passion and fervor not seen since Ruth Bader Ginsburg began her career in the 1950s, since she was first in her class but unemployable because no one wanted a “lady lawyer.”Our world is shaken.
But we must act with resolve and with confidence.
There is no time to despair.
There is work to be done.

Would the Notorious RBG have tolerated a bunch of us moping at her loss?
Not for a moment:
This Justice who issued a Supreme Court ruling from the bench
The very day after losing the love of her life, Marty Ginsburg,
A man who sincerely believed in gender equality long before it became a commonplace notion.Yes, she was indomitable.
Few of us have the mental or physical fortitude
Of this tiny giant.

I don’t call on us to mirror her brilliance, her strength, her greatness.
With few exceptions (Thurgood Marshall comes to mind), that’s impossible.
We can’t come close to matching that.Nevertheless, some ancient Talmudic wisdom comes to mind.
Our rabbis wrote thousands of years ago:It is not your responsibility
To complete the work
Of perfecting our world.

But you are required.
To do your part.
(That’s worth rereading a few times.)
Let us all resolve
In her name,
In her honor,
In her legacy, and
In her blessed memory

To redouble our efforts
To finish the job she set out to do.

She gave us a fantastic head start.
But now she is gone.

The baton is at our feet.

Pick it up.


Written by Mark Levine.

Mark H. Levine (born May 7, 1966) is an American politician serving as the Delegate from the 45th District of the Virginia House of Delegates since 2016. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

Morality and Politics (Conversation with myself)

How can honest people support a person who shows absolute ignorance on almost any subject? How can so many people still believe a president whose closest advisers are already in jail or are under investigation? How can people who teach their kids to be honest and respectful look at them and tell them to respect a man, knowing he does not follow any moral guidance?

Does a president need to lead by example? Will a president’s behavior affect people’s behavior? Can we, with clear consciousness, support an amoral politician?

Democracy is based on participation. But if the president lacks morals, values and principles, people become cynical, lose trust in the system, and democracy falls.

Can we trust a president who we know is not honest? A dishonest president corrodes people’s trust in government. And distrust of our government destroys the democratic system based on people’s participation.

A president needs to have the common good in mind when making decisions. For example, when deciding immigration issues, common decency and empathy should be a compass. A person who is capable of taking children away from parents, without feeling compassion, has no moral compass.


Why are we teaching our kids good morals if they know that someone who does not have good morals was elected president? Can we teach kids to be honest, respect others, not to lie and not to steal and then turn around and say that it is okay when a politician is doing all these things?

political ethicists have emphasized the ways in which democracies can fall apart in the absence of personal virtue. Conservative thinkers, in particular, have argued that political institutions can only function when all those who participate within them are capable of compromise and of self-government. Rules, to put it simply, don’t work unless people governed by those rules care about them and voluntarily choose to abide by them. If this is true of citizens, it is even more true of the president, whose opportunities to damage the system through unprincipled actions are so much greater.”


Integrity is having a strong set of ethical principles, being able to tell the truth no matter the consequences, admitting to a wrong even if you could get away without doing it. Integrity is about doing the right thing; it is being incorruptible, honest, and above all, doing all these things when no one is around to see it.”

I am trying to use logic to outline, to reason, to explain why principles and high morals are important. But maybe it is simpler than that.

Let’s put aside politics. Isn’t it natural to feel repulsion, anger, sadness, shock seeing this man in OUR WHITE HOUSE?

Let’s talk about integrity, principles, moral clarity. How can any decent person ignore all lies, unethical behavior and derogatory speeches? How can people who consider themselves decent and moral defend an adulterer, a crook, a cheater? Trump mocked a disabled person, a reporter. He ordered the separation of children from their parents.

How can honest people support a person who shows absolute ignorance on almost any subject? How can so many people still believe a president whose closest advisers are already in jail or are under investigation? How can people who teach their kids to be honest and respectful look at them and tell them to respect a man, knowing he does not follow any moral guidance?

How do you feel listening to all these lies?

How do you feel seeing a man mocking a disabled person?

How do you feel watching little children separated from their parents?

How do you feel watching democracy crumbling around you?

Does watching this man in the White House, decapitating the EPA, our land and sea, make you sad, angry?

How do you feel watching this man’s smirk when he is hugging our American flag?

Morally blind

So why are we trying to explain the obvious to a blind person?

How do you explain how the sky looks to the blind?

How do you explain colors, fall leaves to the blind?

How do you explain birds singing, trees whispering in the evening breeze to a deaf person?

I don’t know. And it frightens me.

My Response to Trump Supporters

It really does not matter to me who will be President instead of Trump, as long as the person is experienced, mentally stable, caring, and knowledgeable. The question is not who is Biden, the question is, should we allow Trump 4 more years of destruction.

By Anna Kagan

A long time friend wrote me a comment on a political post I recently made: “Unfortunately, we (our whole family) see everything that is going through very different lenses.”

I decided to write about my point of view partially as an answer to my friend, but mostly to have a clear picture of the facts for myself. I am a member of the FB group “Russian American Jews Network”. I became a member there to understand why Russian Jews support Trump. Every day I answer the same questions, and argue the same points. Writing this writing has helped me with some of the facts.

I do see everything from a different point of view. Here is my point of view.

I do not like looting and destruction of businesses, I do not support “Defund the police”, I do not support Ocasio Cortez, or Tlaib, or Omar, I did not vote for Bernie in primaries. In short, I do not support the far left.

I do support the BLM movement to address racism in this country and police brutality. I do support restructuring of police forces to dedicate more money to social workers and neighborhood policing, and more training of police forces.

I support Federal, State and Local networks of financial support for poor, disabled, and children, including legal immigrants. I support legal immigration to this country from all over the world, because that is what made this country great, because every person should have an opportunity to advance. I support DACA, because these young people are already here, educated, working, and serving in the military. It will be a big shame for this country to deport them instead of making them productive citizens. I do support help for refugees and allowing them to come to the USA reasonably and in a safe manner for society. My family came as refugees, so other people should have an opportunity to come here and build their life. I do support free basic medical services for everybody, I do not support medicare for all, nor private insurance as only choice.

So, these are not radical ideas, these are middle of the road ideas. I see the development of events in this country from a wide range of aspects, not from small petty events or policies. The way I see America right now (under Trump) is not pretty for us and for the next generations.

1. I see the rise of the anti-semitism and racism. “The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) began tracking anti-Semitic hate crimes four decades ago. This past year brought the third-highest spike on record.” ( ). “Nearly 90 percent of those polled said the “extreme political right” pose at least a slight threat to Jews, with 73 percent saying they disapprove of how President Trump “is handling the threat” of anti-Semitism, according to the survey, conducted between Sept. 11 and Oct. 6 (2019) by the research company SSRS.” ( )

● August 2017: “Jews will not replace us”

● Oct. 27, 2018: A man armed with an AR-15-style assault rifle in the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh cut down 11 congregants in the worst killing of Jews in American history. ( )

● Dec. 10, 2019: A gunman in a kosher deli in Jersey City, N.J., killed, among others, two Orthodox Jews.

● Dec. 28, 2019:A man wielding a machete in a rabbi’s home in Monsey, N.Y., wounded five during a Hanukkah celebration.

And now we see the rise of anti-semitism on the far left during BLM protests and after.

Anti-semitism is like virus – it does not know the political party, it does not know borders. It is a barometer of the political situation in the country. When it is bad – Jews are to blame. Even a great economy, low unemployment and a record stock market before the Corona virus did not lower anti-semitism in this country. And the leadership plays a huge role. We did not like Trump’s reaction to events in Charlottesville (“very fine people on both sides”: ) and his late reactions (sometimes several days) to the killing of Jews in America. Trump in 2019: American Jews were “disloyal” or had a “total lack of knowledge” to support Democrats (

2. About the Democrats war on Trump.

Trump’s war on our democratic institutions lead to Congressional hearings. And some probably went too far. But the majority deserves great attention as to how one person can destroy almost three centuries of this democracy.

● First it was Trump’s war on the FBI. Dismissing everybody from the top and installing his people. Then it was Trump’s war on the Justice Department. Dismiss the top and install Barr who is acting like Trump’s personal lawyer. The record setting turnover rate in the Trump administration has been mind boggling. People did not have time to adjust to Trump as these people were dismissed because they thought that they could help the country.

In 3-1/2 years 4 chiefs of staff, 4 deputy chiefs of staff, 3 assistants to the president in domestic counseling, 5 deputy assistants to the president, 8 special assistants to the president, 4 national security advisers, 4 deputy national security advisers, 3 homeland security advisers, and so on. As of May 25, 2020, there have been 415 unique names dismissed and/or resigned from the executive office of the president ( ). Are all these people disqualified because they are not capable or because they are not loyal to the president?

● Trump’s blackmailing Ukraine in 2019 for dirt on his opponent is a constitutional violation. The government watchdog – the Government Accountability Office – found that the money was withheld “for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act.” So, the Congress has the obligation to investigate, and thus the impeachment.

● The most recent – Russia’s pay-to-kill American soldiers in Afghanistan. 29 American soldiers have been killed since then. Who is responsible? What did Trump do?

● And now the pandemic. In January through mid March, nothing was done to stop and prevent the virus in the US. “Hoax”, “Democratic states”, Soros, Gates, Fauci are to blame, masks are a political statement, masks and distancing “are for Democrats”. In April: “President Trump fired off a series of tweets Friday that appeared to encourage citizens in states protesting strict coronavirus lock down orders to “LIBERATE” themselves from their governors.“

160K+ Americans are dead now because there was no policy, no direction, no guidance for the first 90 days. But then it was too late, the virus does not recognize borders, race, parties, big or small cities. Who needs terrorists when we have one in the White House? I hold Trump responsible for the virus spread and for the economic downturn. Look where Europe, Asia Pacific and New Zealand are now. They work, the shop, they eat at restaurants, they have open schools. And what do we do? Trump erased all economic achievements before the virus.

All of this shows that our leader does not know and does not want to know how to lead during crises. Historians say that the real president is tested during crises, not during good times. Well, Trump failed. Big time – 160K+ dead.

2. Foreign policy. Trump left all international agreements.

The Paris climate change agreement. The problem is that the climate is changing, and thus more droughts, hurricanes, forest fires, flooding, extreme heat and extreme cold. That means more hungry, more displaced people around the world. And where these refugees will turn to – of course Europe and America. To address this future crises you need a coalition of countries around the world. Trump’s answer – drill for more oil, and get out of the agreement.

TPP (Trans-Pacific-Partnership). The partnership was created to have a buffer for the growing economic and military influence of China in the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. Trump left the agreement and decided to fight China alone. He did not know and did not want to know that to fight China you need all the countries in the world that you can get together in this fight. His tariff war backfired big time. Instead of making China crawl on their knees to the US (as Trump thought), they are stronger than three years ago, more influential all around the world than three years ago, and they make agreements with our former allies and enemies alike.

WHO (World Health Organization). Instead of working and pressuring to reorganize the WHO, Trump left the organization during the pandemic. You have to fight the pandemic simultaneously in all countries around the world. Trump’s idea is to go alone, thus the result – the country with the worst outbreak in the world.

Iranian nuclear agreement. It was not a perfect agreement, but it was something to hold Iran in control for 15 years. Instead of keeping the control and pressuring Iran on ballistic and tactical weaponry, we left the agreement without any plan for the next day. Now, we have no clue what is going on inside Iran, what stage their nuclear program is in now. But what we do know is that Iran and China are in the process of signing a $400B economic and military agreement. How does Israel enjoy this decision?

Trump left Syria to Russia, Syrian Kurds to Turkey, Lebanon to Hezbollah. And none of them are Israel’s friends. How does Israel enjoy this new neighborhood?

The following is from Nathan’s cousin, Gary Sherman, who is a retired judge from Wisconsin: “My 20 years in politics taught me that there is a vital difference between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats fight hard for power. After all, power is the only way things can be accomplished in government. I learned that from my mother. However, there are some things that Democrats won’t do for power. There are lines we will not cross.

There is nothing, no limit, even letting people die in large numbers, selling out to our adversaries, nothing that Republicans will not do for power. No Republican would do what Al Gore did (“Al Gore gracefully submitting to a highly politicized Supreme Court decision giving the 2000 election to George W. Bush.“ . And not just Trump. He is mad, but his enablers are just as ruthless.

Now, I know that this is contrary to the moral equivalence argument being made here. But moral equivalence is seldom true. There are not “good people on both sides” all the time.”

3. About values.

We use our values to guide our decisions about our relationships (i.e., whom to be friends with, whom to marry) and careers (i.e., whom to work for and with). In other words, we like people who share our values and are drawn towards them.

“In all fairness, we should recognize that lying is sadly not uncommon for politicians on both sides of the political aisle, but the frequency and magnitude of the current president’s lies should have us all wondering why they haven’t destroyed his political career, and instead perhaps strengthened it.” And why is the person who said: “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” still so popular? For some wealthy people, it’s simply a financial matter. Tax cut, regulations removed, even if we destroy the Earth. Blue-collar workers are happy that Trump is trying to bring manufacturing jobs back to America. Some people like Trump’s anti-immigration policies. All these people put their moral concerns aside, and put their practical concerns above moral ones. Some people support Trump simply to be rebellious and to bring chaos to our political system: let’s destroy everything and start all over. Some supporters are under-informed or mis-informed, and take Trump’s word for what it is without fact checking. There are those who support giving Trump full authority due to their inability to understand how democracy works. Their words are – “losers, complete disaster” (do you recognize Trump’s words?). And then there are racists and bigots. And there is one more group, those who think that only they can save Israel from liberals. Trump called them “disloyal”.

So, we have Trump who cheated on all his three of his wives, who bankrupted six businesses, cheated contractors, failed with Trump University, failed with Trump’s lines of steaks, ties, vodka, casinos, lied about his charity contributions, used federal troops to clear his way to a church to have a photo-op with Bible in hand. And I ask myself which group do my friends belong to?

In closing, one more thing: as I described above about Trump’s presidency, I support voting Trump out from the White House. It really does not matter to me who will be President instead of Trump, as long as the person is experienced, mentally stable, caring, and knowledgeable. The question is not who is Biden, the question is, should we allow Trump 4 more years of destruction.

Covid 19 Partner – Obesity.

Or is this death for profit? The problem is that the food industry wants you to eat more. And more. Obesity is profitable for the food industry, especially the junk food industry.

Why is this virus so deadly for some people?

The World is Sick. THE WORLD IS FAT!

Why are we intentionally staying silent about it?

Political correctness stands in the way. Are we afraid that the PC police will shame us if we start discussions about the huge toll that the obesity epidemic exerts on our country’s health care system?

Or is this death for profit? The problem is that the food industry wants you to eat more. And more. Obesity is profitable for the food industry, especially the junk food industry.

And drug companies are happy. Drug companies make money!. More drugs to sell! What are the ads you see most often on TV?

Vicious circle. Food – people get sick – drugs to “treat” people – ads how to lose weight – plus size clothing.

And then the politically correct crowd telling you that it’s OK! That you should “love yourself the way you are” And if somebody suggests to you that you need to lose weight to get healthy it is “aggression”! They hurt your feelings.

So the result is a country with a sick population, out of control health (sickness) care, rampant depression, along with an opioid epidemic. And now COVID 19 that kills people with compromised immune systems.

And then here is our consumption based economy.

Buy, buy, buy more to “help the economy”.

The economy that is slowly killing us! Sad statistics

The estimated annual health care costs of obesity-related illness is a staggering $190.2 billion or nearly 21% of annual medical spending in the United States. Childhood obesity alone is responsible for $14 billion in direct medical costs.

Key facts

  • Worldwide obesity has nearly tripled since 1975.
  • In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 650 million were obese.
  • 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2016, and 13% were obese.
  • Most of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
  • 38 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2019.
  • Over 340 million children and adolescents aged 5-19 were overweight or obese in 2016.
  • Obesity is preventable.

Obesity is a lot more deadly than previously thought. Across recent decades, obesity accounted for 18 percent of deaths among black and white Americans between the ages of 40 and 85, according to scientists. This finding challenges the prevailing wisdom among scientists, which puts that portion at around 5%.

So is this natural selection in action? Evolution works through crisis. The weak dying for the benefit of the human race?
