Just how bad is it gonna get… huh? Facts are miA… missin’ in America

My record in accurately answering my eight (8) word title question above ain’t very good.  Most certainly not when it comes to dates of expectation supported by real reality.  That’s a fact, Jack!

Those four (4) words… “That’s a fact, Jack!” are my recent favorites.  Why?  Because “facts” have disappeared…gone bye bye… miA… missin’ in America… that’s why.

We Americans are simply repeating history and history’s repetitions as to what occurs when materialism and irresponsibility (America’s recent… last 5 or 6 decades) gather together.   History’s answer… result… well it sure ain’t a 24/7 New York/California materialism/advertising solution... is it?

My suggestion for the very few who read/accept (sure appears our DC gathering of attorneys/bureaucrats/lobbyists/representatives/senators/endless media nincomPOOPs interrupted 24/7 by advertisements... don't) my few original… many borrowed words is… take care… be safe… cut back… do without… lose or manage weight… work hard, exercise and, most importantly… volunteer… VOLUNTEER.   Society’s that survive are responsible... they volunteer, limit debt ... pay it back.   Fundamental facts, folks... !!

We the people must save America… on/before November 8, 2022.   May well determine America… today and tomorrow…

Comments… mostly questions… about America today… our future…

Let me back up ⬆️ to early 1942 when I was conceived in my Mom’s womb and almost the entire world was at war… killin' each other.

America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, where my ancestors from several European… not historically gettin/goin’ along places, was unprepared when it was attacked on December 7, 1941 and joined the battles over both oceans 🌊 separating us from our enemy’s.  My first question… pls name our real enemy’s today and their location?  Also is this question being carefully/thoroughly analyzed and openly shared in America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ now?  If so name by whom now… list them… or simply their websites where I and others can get caught up ⬆️ to date before it’s too late ??

Here’s a question based on what’s currently filling America’s 24/7 “news, information, analysis… darn few solutions” in between endless advertisements seldom mentioning the service/product cost πŸ’² and guaranteed lifetime expectancy… is that simply an unstated reality of a society based on materialism?  Do you know what materialism is?  Can you explain it?  Who benefits?  Who doesn’t?  Does history prove materialism is a survival route?

Pls name just two or three of America’s well known and high-performance leaders who address daily these questions above ⬆️ and several more below ⬇️ and also state honestly and openly what they know… and what they don’t know?  By that I simply mean… do they have an honest teacher as I and others did who simply said… get off your butt… get educated… work hard… be responsible… do without… repeat tomorrow… HUH?

More not so easy questions to answer, so seldom mentioned… how long has America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ been around and how long have America’s enemy’s been around?  What simple facts, history exist around our globe 🌍 as to why some of us survive?   In what ways?  Our, America’s,  half of the globe 🌎 is pretty new at survivals requirements.  Try this one… offer examples of survival and materialism?   Where/when/how long has it worked out? 

Lots of words above ⬆️.   My time runneth out… why the H E double L aren’t these and other questions mentioned by our DC… Debt Crazy… buffoons?   Why aren’t they volunteers?  Am I alone with their stupidity… nonsense that causes me to simply ask and say… is this why we Homo sapiens have so many religions… many pointin’ fingers of irresponsibility everywhere butt not at the fatso we see in our mirror πŸͺž?

That’s all folks… Hi Yo Silver… where the hel* are Tonto and the Lone Ranger?  We need ‘em faster than a speedin’ bullet… more powerful than a nuclear ️ bomb πŸ’£!   We’ve replaced those two good guys… and The Magnificent Seven... with millions of attorneys politicians bureaucrats lobbyists and entertainers who simply always disappear when the smelly stuff (shi*) hits the fan… huh?

Future?   History sure keeps repeatin'...

… just facts ma’am as we accelerate on materialisms highway to obese* land… US of A

Our source:  https://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/adult.html

·         From 1999 –2000 through 2017 –March 2020, US obesity prevalence increased from 30.5% to 41.9%. During the same time, the prevalence of severe obesity* increased from 4.7% to 9.2%. 


·         Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer. These are among the leading causes of preventable, premature death

·         The estimated annual medical cost of obesity external icon in the United States was nearly $173 billion in 2019 dollars. Medical costs for adults who had obesity were $1,861 higher than medical costs for people with healthy weight.

They get a bit more specific…

·         Non-Hispanic Black adults (49.9%) had the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity, followed by Hispanic adults (45.6%), non-Hispanic White adults (41.4%) and non-Hispanic Asian adults (16.1%).

·         The obesity prevalence was 39.8% among adults aged 20 to 39 years, 44.3% among adults aged 40 to 59 years, and 41.5% among adults aged 60 and older.

Let’s examine our obesity (fatso) status with a few mirror… mirror… on the wall facts... who be da’ fattest of ‘em all…

·         Overall, men and women with college degrees had lower obesity prevalence compared with those with less education.

·         The same obesity and education pattern occurred among non-Hispanic White, non-Hispanic Black, and Hispanic women, and non-Hispanic White men. However, the differences were not all statistically significant. Although the difference was not statistically significant among non-Hispanic Black men, obesity prevalence increased with educational attainment. No differences in obesity prevalence by education level were noted among non-Hispanic Asian women and men and Hispanic men.

·         Among men, obesity prevalence was lower in the lowest and highest income groups compared with the middle-income group. Researchers observed this pattern among non-Hispanic White and Hispanic men. Obesity prevalence was higher in the highest income group than in the lowest income group among non-Hispanic Black men.

A closin’ question… why aren’t the advertisements on 24/7 news shows legally required to share factual real-life butt/tummy/visual obesity results from regular consumption of their oh-so tasty goodies… huh?

* obesity is a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or higher… healthy BMI… 18.5 to 24.9

One heck of a 4th of July… huh?

I love America… I was conceived in the womb of a good woman a while back when our young men… and women… were simply doing what needed to be done… here are a few words about them…

“The most brilliant of generals, the most inspiring of admirals, and the greatest of battlefield troops would pale in significance to the thousands of American Rosie and Ronnie the Riveters who outproduced both the Axis and the other Allied powers combined, contributing nearly three hundred thousand planes, 2 million trucks, eighty-seven thousand warships, and one hundred thousand tanks to Roosevelt’s arsenal of democracy in 1943.”

The above ️ words… borrowed from pages 392 and 393 of Craig Nelson’s 2016 brilliant book πŸ“• Pearl Harbor from Infamy to Greatness… well worth reading!

Here are a few minutes of one young American woman’s very recent shared words about this country of ours – pls click on… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Hk3A5SaIXA  (follow instructions pls)

That’s about it folks… a good man’s few borrowed words on his first day… brief time in office… “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country…”

My few words… materialism stinks… way down below ️… doin’ without… long overdue!
