    Giving rich people who don't need the tax cuts and spending to line their pockets is absolutely nothing to do with the pandemic.

    Its chinas fault for letting this thing out to begin with.

    Its Americas fault for failing to respond to it adequately.

    Yes and did you notice it’s not really about people starving? You see the pie is a metaphor for share of the money and economy as referenced by the tin the pie sits in saying “economic pie”.

    You are aware of how political cartoons work. Right?

    Here’s another political cartoon that uses food as a metaphor for the underlying message:



    You do get that they’re not really carving a ham that is painted to look like a globe. Right?

    Yep. Get that. You posted that cartoon in the covid thread, and we all know what your intent was.

    Maybe you should post your partisan thoughts on taxes in another thread. You know, the one about that.

    Eight months into the pandemic, obesity has turned out to be one of the clearest predictors of a difficult battle against covid-19, for reasons that may vary from person to person. Some experts say they consider obesity to have contributed to the stunning coronavirus death and morbidity rate in the United States, which has one of the highest obesity rates in the world.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I posted something about this a few weeks ago. Global studies show a number of underlying causes that effect who is hit worse. The two big ones so far are BMI like this story shows.

    The death rate shoots up drastically for people with a BMI of 29 and up I believe. And the average, AVERAGE, BMI in the US is around 28 or 30 depending on the study.

    Another big one is gut microbiome which we’re just starting to learn more about over the last year or so. The importance of fiber in keeping that status healthy, and something like 90%+ of Americans don’t get the daily minimum.

    BAH! my guess is it's a linear effect. And they just happened to to cut it there. Also the older you get the more likely your BMI creeps up to the 25-30 level.


    This is a pretty solid study, and they are showing that the value for just obese 30 (and keep in mind I was "obese" a year ago at 5'8" 205, you wouldn't know to look at me) was within the margin of error for the same as normal weight. Have to get to 40, before you really see a change... that for me would mean I would have had to gain 60 lbs. And again the relationship is likely linear, the numbers they throw around are cut points. The media often runs with this stuff losing the nuance in black and white health lines you don't want to cross.

    Hey that cartoon is exactly what all the rich people and big corporations are doing during covid times. They're gonna swoop in and buy all the cheap city real estate and watch all the mom and pops go out of business.

    U.S. deaths from the coronavirus will reach 410,000 by the end of the year, more than double the current death toll, and deaths could soar to 3,000 per day in December, the University of Washington’s health institute forecast on Friday.

    Deaths could be reduced by 30% if more Americans wore face masks as epidemiologists have advised, but mask-wearing is declining, the university’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation said.

    The U.S. death rate projected by the IHME model, which has been cited by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, would more than triple the current death rate of some 850 per day.

    "We expect the daily death rate in the United States, because of seasonality and declining vigilance of the public, to reach nearly 3,000 a day in December,” the institute, which bills itself as an independent research center, said in an update of its periodic forecasts.
