    Oh, I wasn't disputing your numbers. We are a very overweight country.

    Okay and again I ask, these fines that are allegedly working elsewhere, what is the context to population and population density?

    No, a theory is saying everyone should start a race equal and believing in every fiber of your being that is fact and shoot down anyone who injects otherwise.

    I challenge you to read a short story called Harrison Bergeron, to give you perspective on your ideology of everyone should start a race equally theory.
    Why wouldn't Universal Healthcare work? If you take the over 1 TRILLION dollars spent in 2019 out of the for profit insurance industry and put it actually back into healthcare (including paying doctors, nurses etc) you have plenty. This is why Medicare is so much more efficient for each dollar invested in the system than the private sector for profit medical industry. Medicare for all would absolutely work and be the best thing for this country. Allow people to make all the money they can in a capitalistic system however have the backstop of medical care as a right not a privilege.

    Meh, I'm not sure it's that easy with the salary of physicians in this country versus other countries, with the underlying health issues in this country versus other countries, with debt to gdp ratio in this country versus other countries, how invested big pharma is in this country, how outrageously priced medical equipment (machines) is, with how intertwined and corrupt politicians and CEOs in the medical field are, with how many non contributors to society there are in this country versus other countries.

    Like I say, it's a cool theory, it's just not really that practical, in this country.

    Kyle Rittenhouse to sue Biden, campaign for libel, attorney says

    'He falsely accused a 17-year old boy & prejudiced Kyle’s legal rights,' the attorney tweeted
    An attorney representing alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse has announced plans to sue Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his campaign for libel on his client's behalf after Biden shared a video that appears to suggest the teenager is a White supremacist.

    Lin Wood, Rittenhouse’s civil attorney, confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday his intention to sue the former vice president and his campaign on his client’s behalf, just hours after Biden posted the 50-second clip to Twitter.

    who are the, Not F-king Around Coalition?

    https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/...er-comparison/

    Black militia called ‘Not F-king Around Coalition’ demonstrates in GA; angered at Black Panther comparison
    On Saturday, July 4, a group of “100% black” people named the “Not ****ing Around Coalition” (NFAC) marched through Stone Mountain Park armed and escorted by police.

    The founder of the group, who calls himself Grand Master Jay, spoke with Newsweek over the phone Sunday. Jay said:

    “We are a Black militia. We aren’t protesters, we aren’t demonstrators. We don’t come to sing, we don’t come to chant. That’s not what we do.”

    What do they do then? Well, on Independence Day, Jay said:

    “Our initial goal was to have a formation of our militia in Stone Mountain to send a message that as long as you’re abolishing all these statues across the country, what about this one?”
    armed group of all black people, marching and wanting to send a message. I see no problem if this is what they are doing.

    but what else do they want?

    The NFAC met at this nine-story monument made of a transparent crystalline mineral to start their march. The NFAC gathered with about 1,000 members, each one armed with ammunition and a rifle.

    They were challenging the white nationalist groups in the area to come out and fight.

    One protester used a PA system and shouted:

    “I don’t see no white militia, the boogie [boogaloo] boys, the three percenters and all the rest of these scared-*** rednecks. We here, where **** you at? We’re in your house.”
    wanting violence should be unacceptable, whether it's this NFAC wanting to fight, or white supremacists wanting to fight.





    same article..

    During the march, the leaders of the NFAC militia halted the formation to call out to the local white supremacists and far-right Second Amendment advocates to “stop hiding.”

    Other members chanted: “Black Lives Matter, Black Power, Hands up, don’t shoot.”

    Jay said:

    “We will not allow the murder of another black person, whether it be by white people or black people. I am not ****ing around.”

    Lest you think he’s just a regular protester speaking in anger, Jay also said:

    “It was all Black … there were no brown people, no white people… everyone was Black. I am not a protester, I am the commanding general of my militia, we were swearing in new members.”

    Jay also mentioned they’re planning another “show of force” In Phoenix on Saturday.

    Organizers of the march want change and say they will “no longer be ignored.”

    One of them said:

    “We want change that’s really going to permanently help us, we don’t want [any] little change, we want some real change.”

    Another organizer said:

    “It’s life or death out here, that’s why we’re out here, day by day, practicing our Second Amendment right just like the white folks do.”
    nothing wrong with this. using their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.

    if they escalate beyond this, that could be something different.

    "It was all black, no brown, and no white people"

    I've asked before and didn't get a response.
    Who, these days, are being referred to when they say brown people?
    It used to be that was a reference to many Asian non-Orientals.
    Then it seemed to infer people with one black and one white parent.
    Now?

    And why does it seem in a lot of this there's ONLY blacks, whites, and browns involved? Where do latinos fit?
    gotta love 'referential' treatment
