How can “the 99%” be poor if “the 42%” have enough food to cause obesity? Only in America!
Obesity could affect 42% of Americans by 2030

If 99% of people are poor and can’t afford food, how in the world can we have 42% obesity?!?!?! You can use any calculator you want, it doesn’t add up. Truly poor people are not obese!!! They are THIN because they can’t afford food!!!
What is actually happening in America is that we have SO MUCH food, and SO MUCH time to stand around holding protest signs, that we are a nation spoiled rotten. Sodom and Gomorrah were the same way, and they were judged for it:
Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride [have you heard the bragging that goes on in pop music these days?], fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy [today, people are busy demanding free stuff from others, instead of giving their own stuff away!]. — Ezekiel 16:49
Instead of demanding that other people give them free stuff and pay their student loans, today’s overfed, overindulged protesters would do well to actually give something back to the world.
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed TO GIVE than to receive.'” — Acts 20:35
