The one thing I hate about this movement is that it accepts people like you. You’re whining about racism and anti-semitism and accusing people of being Nazis, you’re literally no better than a leftist. There should be zero tolerance for Leftist SJW garbage on these boards, and yet here you are. Sad.

I thought us anti-vaxxers were standing in solidarity with those who oppose oppression and authoritarian regimes. Something Africans are more likely to be familiar with than say a Norwegian native. I never really thought of it as a race thing….just a culture and mindset thing. Europeans go along with stuff because they are not ingrained from birth with the idea of personal liberty like Americans. I don’t identify as European-American, nor do I care about where I descended from. I’m an American, I can’t get any better.

I don't think that's the reason they arent taking the jabs. lol. It has liittle to do with a philosophical belief in liberty. They arent taking the jabs because

  1. Their nations probably cant afford purchasing big doses of it. Thus big-pharma wont sell them that much of it.

  2. There's no china virus outbreak in Africa because the people there are more fit to handle it plus take common drugs like HDQ, ivermetic etc. to treat it.

  3. They aren't very devolped thus would not be able to adminster a jab campaign well.

  4. Africans give zero fcks about a jab. They have no interest in it, and it does not come within their radar of attaining. Jab sht for this china virus is truly a "1st world problem".

And to your point westrock... thank you. That used to be the idea among us when trump was president... then fcking joe Biden reared his ugly head into presidency. Racialism, tribalism, anti-semitism have seen a huge uptick. A lot insulting minoirites by these stormfg accounts. But they do it in a way that kinda circumvents the rules, thus its hard to report him. Sighs... it just stinks. Why be a racist a-hole? why!?

I live in a town with zero fast food joints. Interestingly enough, there are zero fat kids and the small handful of overweight adults are middle aged women who've had multiple kids. And even then, they'd be considered "average" at Walmart. Processed and fast food has wrecked this nation's health.

It's funny... my Family immigrated here before the immigration act. My mother's family did at least... my father came after I think.

But the immigration act of 1965 wasn't that bad. All it did was just forbid discrimination from the so-called "third world". I would have liked to see Nixon's immigration reform had he not lost in 1960.

Do any of you peeps know what Nixon's republican party immigration reform would have been differnt then kenndys/johnson reform?

Why wouldn’t you want to discriminate against third worlders?

-4
King4 -4 points ago +2 / -6

" third Worlders" What is that supposed to mean? What is "third world"... "2nd world"... "1st world". How do you and who defines that? The West establishment? The same ilk pushing covid Tyranny and social degenerancy? Or do you define based on the civlization devolpement? If that's the case, then why do we stop at foreign? We should discriminate for sht-liberals and elites against Rural-Americans. Or those with the more civilized and advance establishment orthozdoxy? The establishment is more "devolped" and "advanced" then rurals.

See how your ret*rded logic can be used against us, Maga? Do not ever bring such a stupid point before King Four again you short-sided mindless imbecile. Did you have a problem with how I just talked to you? Yeah... same way many ethnic Americans would have a problem saying they should not be here because of their ethnic orgins.

How about we discriminate against no one, and allow entry to those who can best assimliate to our soceity and values whereever they come from. If that's Europeans... so be it. If that's non-europeans... so bet it. If that's a mix of both to varying extents... so be it.

That's all I meant by defending the 1965 immigration act. Again, if the act has provisons in it that potentially get in the way of Making America Great Again, we shall reform it as need be so our America-First agenda can be done. But... putting forced racial quotas for the sake of racial quotas is not America-First. It's backward and degenerate thinking. That's what dumobcrats do. And fck them for that. We mustn following in their disgraceful footsteps.

It's so distateful I've even have to explain such things. You'd think your devolped moral principles should have already taught you against such things... but oh well.

Okay, I get it. I'd rather call them under-devolped countries then "3rd-world". Still... if they have enough skill-set to go through the ropes and file an application for American citizenship. Then they should be looked at. A person "shtting on the streets" bathing in... whatever. Probably would not apply for US citzenship anyway you dumba$$.

Wut? That act is what fundamentally changed the racial balance of the US. If you like that... well I suppose it's a point of view, but metrically, the US got worse afterwards.

-2
King4 -2 points ago +1 / -3

Wasn't that due to how it was implemented by globalist polictians rather then the act itself? If the act gets in the way of implementing America-First policies... then reform it. But act of having Quotas.. aka respect of people simply because of where they are from I find greatly detestable and degenerate.

4
when_we_win_remember 4 points ago +4 / -0

Honestly, I'm not sure I know enough to answer your question about theory vs implementation. They did claim when they were passing it that it was not going to upset the ethnic balance of America, which clearly it did, so maybe those claims were genuine.

Yeah quotas are a dumb way of doing it compared to evaluating the actual merit of immigrants. I'm sure that was part of the reason for changing the law. However, no merit system was implemented. Rather, we got "family reunification"

Any criticism I make of the '65 immigration act is of course going to be with 20/20 hindsight and the benefit of generations of surveys asking Americans pertinent questions about whether they feel safe and how well they think they're doing economically. That's what I mean when I say that metrically, empirically America got worse. For immigrants, too. Not just Mayflower types. One thing you'll notice among immigrants is, as soon as they get all their cousins in, a desire to slam the door shut. I don't think of that as hypocrisy; I think of it as self preservation.

A President, who saved the US military and eliminated the threat of the communist USSR and did so many other important things, decided to fix the Open Border problem.

It was one million allowed to stay, plus the border sealed, plus employers in big trouble for hiring illegals.

The Swamp "agreed", but that meant they waited out his second term, threw away two parts of the legislation, and then tripled those allowed to stay.

Instead of the one million and the border sealed, the USA has received 30million to 40million illegals since then.

Reagan was the prototype of Trump, in the sense he was a populist with no real political experience that the Uniparty didn't expect would ever have a hope in hell of winning his primary, let alone the election.

They tried to execute him a few days into his first term with their patsy Hinckley, but it didn't work, so they settled on worming Bush in instead. Whether the dementia was their doing or not, we don't know.

RizzlieDoodad 17 points ago +17 / -0

I've started exercising. I try to only eat real whole foods. When I go shopping, I usually stay out of the aisles in the grocery store. The outside ring is the best. You'll notice all the good shit is on the outside ring of the store. The aisles are just full of corn and sugar. Seriously, look at the ingredients.

The majority of the issues and problems I had prior to exercise have almost all gone away. I fixed my diet first. Then I started exercise. I made sure to go slow. I tend to go too hard too fast and get injured and stop. I wanted to do it right this time. I got my schedule down and I get upset if I can't do it. 2 times a week, I do a full body workout. Keep notes. Increase the weight when you think you're ready. Next week I increase it again. I'm a lot stronger than I thought I was.

You're gonna have to force a paradigm shift. Most people fail because they're using motivation and self control to stop themselves. Lol good luck. Don't tell yourself you can't have something. Tell yourself you don't want it. Most people have sugar addictions and don't even know it. That addiction is a lot harder than you think it is.

Stop drinking. If you can't do it or don't want to, just limit yourself. Alcohol prevents weightloss. It's all fucking sugar water and the bubbles make you look bloated.

Until earlier this year, I have never been able to do one pull up. My arms are bigger than they have ever been and I have a 32" waist (was 38/40 at Christmas) 2020).

When I was in school - fat kids were RARE as all fuck and were bullied incessantly thus ensuring that all other kids were aware of how bad it was to be a fucking hamplanet. Kids who had fat mums were also very RARE but were absolutely fair game.

I remember at about the age of 6 we were at a Trash and Treasure Market and I saw my first genuinely obese waddling person. It made such an impact on me that 50 years later I can remember it as clear as day and I remember asking my parents what was wrong with him.

Make Bullying Great Again.

It has its place. It's a sorting mechanism. It's social feedback. It's effective. It's natural. It works. It's traditional.

Now look at who has levers of power. A bunch of fucking pussies.

Strong, fit, successful, attractive, and hard-working people are the ones who used to naturally be at the top of dominance hierarchies. They are good leaders.

Starting in childhood, kids would sort themselves into the hierarchy. It's very normal and natural. Yes, bullying is a part of it. As it should be.

I guess you can try to shame people to eat healthier, but really the government incentives that create the American diet need to go away. Our whole food production system is poisonous, and the government is at the root of all of it.

There wasn't any shortage of processed food in the 50s and 60s. This pic looks about 1960 to me.

One thing that was different was there weren't drive thru fast food places all over. Hardly any at all. McDonald's had barely started. On that score, eating out in general was a lot less common back then. If you did so once a week that was a lot.

People also weren't glued to screens all day. Maybe you had a black and white TV at home with 4 channels on it.

HuggableBear 6 points ago +6 / -0

If you are 5'8" 150 and decently fit, that would put you around 8% bidy fat. That's not unrealistic at all. You even said it yourself:

look like now

NOW. You think that somehow what it means to be healthy changed since then.

News flash, bud, human anatomy didn't change in 50 years, your view of what constitutes "normal" did.

Why do you think that is?

Shruggo89 3 points ago +5 / -2

8% body fat is a photoshoot-ready male fitness model, closing in on competition-ready bodybuilder levels. It's fairly unrealistic for most people. Generally speaking, 15% is still athletic and easily attainable for most

11
HuggableBear 11 points ago +12 / -1

There's your problem. You think a healthy body should be easily attainable, which is why you are so desperate to make 15% the new standard.

Well, it worked. You and your lazy brethren have convinced everyone that 20 pounds overweight is "healthy" and that 8% body fat is a male model. Thanks for encouraging all your fellow lardasses to remain lardasses because you don't want to work hard enough to be truly fit.

FYI half the men in this photo are below 10%.

Shruggo89 1 point ago +1 / -0

Nah, you have no idea what you're talking about. And I'm not desperate to do anything. Some guys will have a six pack at 15%. Some at 12%. Some can get down to single digits and still not have a six pack. Not having a six pack doesn't make someone overweight either. Having one doesn't necessarily mean you're in good shape.

And I do have a six pack and work out 5 days a week in addition to a working with my hands every day, so you can shove that "lazy" talk up the gaping maw that you call your asshole.

And FYI, most of the people in the picture don't even look like they lift. They look like normal people that ate mostly normal food and didn't have the opportunity to sit in front of a screen for 16 hours a day.

50 years? When do you think WW2 happened? It wasn't 1971. But we're really talking about the timeframe of when those men fighting where growing up. We're talking about the twenties and earlier, and people's health was a lot different then.

1
HuggableBear 1 point ago +1 / -0

people's health was a lot different then.

See, again, you're not getting it.

People's health is exactly the same as it has been for 100,000 years. Nothing has changed in the last century except your perception. You are trying to convince us (and more importantly, yourself) that being not fit is actually being fit because "people's health has changed".

Why do you think that is?

Nothing has changed. Healthy is healthy, fit is fit, the only thing different is what has become socially acceptable. Human physiology hasn't changed. Look at the statues of the Greek gods from 3000 years ago. They are fit. They look identical to non-steroid gymbros today. They are all portrayed as strong and lean, ideal human specimens. You think humans just magically changed in the last 50 years so that what was fit in the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's suddenly became "unhealthy" and too thin?

It's propaganda. I would say that you have fallen for it, but the reality is that you have helped make it happen because it makes you feel better about yourself. You are far from the only one, but you need to understand that you are lying to yourself.

It's okay to not be fit. It's okay to be a little overweight. Most people are. Being just a little overweight and a little out of shape isn't going to affect your life or your lifespan very much. It's a scale of effect. The impacts will be minor and you can live your life happily. I know I am, and I am far from fit, but I have little need to be fit like I was in my 20's now that I'm in my 40's. I am okay with being out of shape at this point in my life.

But I am not lying to myself that my out of shape dad bod is anything but an out of shape, less than fit, less than perfectly healthy body, no matter what you or society try to tell me about how it's totally cool now and we should all just love our ugly bodies. I can be okay with my choices and also accept that I am choosing to not be fit and healthy.

So don't kid yourself. You're not in good shape, you're not perfectly healthy, and human anatomy didn't change, only your perception did, and trying to convince other people that unhealthy is actually healthy because "people's health changed" is nothing more than your own coping mechanism and it's damaging to both you and anyone who believes you.

Learn to accept your own flaws and your own failings instead of trying to justify them as not actually being failings. Until you do, you will never be able to change them.

Joequill 1 point ago +1 / -0

I can appreciate that you typed that up, but you're trying to talk to me about me making excuses for being overweight. I am to a degree, not greatly so. I've also got a strong muscular build that would never allow me to get to 150 unless I got absolutely, unnaturally shredded. But that's neither here nor there. People in the twenties did not have the same access to nutrition and healthcare that we do. Just like people in the 1820's had even less. People's health on a societal level has changed over the centuries. Even evolutionarily speaking. You mention 100 thousand years ago... Back then the homo genus didn't have the ability to properly break down animal milk. You think that did make a difference in human health?

This whining about the Food Pyramid is fucking stupid. For like 99% of the history of humanity, everybody ate grains as the baseline of their diets. They were the most calorie-dense and cheapest to acquire and could be grown with the least effort.

Do you think the entirety of the rice-based Asian diet was a conspiracy too?

Every agrarian society on the planet even today is still extremely heavy on grains for the reasons I just said.

It was actually 11 servings. I remember cause I remember being in school and questioning the fuck out of this. I played baseball and soccer and was a growing boy and I remember being absolutely stunned at how much shit I was supposed to eat. Basically it was like every day they wanted me to eat a loaf of bread, 3 apples, 2 tomatoes, a half gallon of milk, and a half pound of meat. That’s crazy and that was the low end

javixpimraj 21 points ago +21 / -0

Part of it is the ballooning of portion sizes.

I've lived outside of the States for a few decades, and more recently whenever I visited (back when I could visit) and went to a restaurant, the sheer amount of food they shoveled onto my plate was striking. The amounts have really changed, they're just abnormal.

I do not need an actual mountain of onion rings, thank you.

Malnutrition from processed foods began in the 1920s with the industrialization of food. The effects were immediate with a huge rise in cavities, a need for orthodontics, and a rise in developmental defects. The main cause was a lack of bio available vitamins a, d3, and k2 through food. There is still a lack of these vitamins in over 90 percent of people’s diets including most people in this thread.

memechallenger33 5 points ago +5 / -0

Yes. Everyone should take vitamin D unless you are out in the sun all day everyday with minimal sunscreen and clothes, or you are eating organ meats all the time. If not, take at LEAST 2000 IU per day of Vitamin D3 with vitamin K2. If you can get your blood tested to check your levels, even better.

Miami, FL, USA, 2017 A.D.

I guess those with ‘secret knowledge’ will see patterns wherever they choose. But one general principle has held for generations around the world… people willing to gather on beaches tend to self-select for health and low body fat.

2
Suckitreddit 2 points ago +2 / -0

True. Yes it usually is pretty self selecting. I met some young Irish girls traveling years ago, and they were shocked that everyone in the US wasn’t huge and fat. But they were in San Francisco.

Ultimately, humans in general in the US do not do as much physical labor as 70 years ago. We eat too much junk, and who knows what chemicals and hormone disruptors we are regularly ingesting and breathing and absorbing.

The food pyramid is upside down. Fat isn’t bad for you, eggs won’t give you heart disease, sugar is a sometimes food, not an everyday food, grazing all day instead of set mealtimes is a mistake.

2
BillsmafiaGG 2 points ago +2 / -0

The physical labor part is difficult to overcome.

Inertia plays a large role in what the human body is willing to push for. When I did a couple years of factory floor work, my walking distance was easily 5-6 miles daily just from work. Instead of feeling tired, I felt warmed up… easily able to log another 3-5 mile run every day.

The body becomes good at what it practices. Now that I work a sedentary desk job, it is much more difficult to switch modes. I’m able to do it by relying on the exercise routine I’ve kept up for years, and using psychological tricks. But unfortunately it’s not just laziness that prevents regular exercise for many Americans. It’s that so many jobs instill the practice of not moving your body.

That’s not an excuse, because anyone can overcome it once they realize the situation. But it’s a real hurdle we’ve created for our society.

2
Suckitreddit 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yes— the body does get acclimated quickly. From an evolutionary standpoint it must...

Even housekeeping has become easier. Vacuums, dishwashers, Washing machines...all have reduced body movement throughout the day.

I like to use an evolutionary lens when I look at behaviors, health, nutrition...we got to modern human from someplace...why and how did we get here.

There are two married evolutionary biologists that have a really interesting podcast. One is Brett Winestein, the professor from Evergreen College who disagreed that white people should be excluded from campus for the traditional “Day if Absence” for students of color. He was pilloried for it. Mind you both he and his wife are Democrats, but they are more “classical liberals” than progressives. At least they are thoughtful about issues and reason themselves into or out of political positions.

Weinstein, Evergreen College

Their podcast is worth a listen:

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/bret-weinstein-darkhorse-podcast/id1471581521?i=1000482788278

Interestingly, his brother Eric has a PhD in Mathematics (I think) and works with Peter Thiel’s venture cap firm. He also dipped his toe in the podcasting thing. One of his most interesting podcasts was about Epstein, with whom he met well before his indictments. One of the tidbits from that was an insight into science at universities, and how discoveries and breakthroughs made at universities do not benefit the scientist. Epstein was funding many scientific incubators —perhaps on the behalf of foreign nations.

Life before cheap food. Food prices have steadily decreased relative to wages over the last 70 years. Of course there are blips like what we are.experiencing now. Also, people are willing to spend much more of their income on groceries and dining out now than they used to.

It's portion sizes that are killing us.

Don't believe me? Look at the size of vintage plates from the 50s compared to today's giant plates. Look at the tiny juice glasses compared to today's huge tumblers. Bowls too.

When I was a kid in the 70s, my parents used to buy one 12" pizza for a family of five. They were frugal. Everyone was.

OhLollyLollyPop 2 points ago +2 / -0

I agree. If you want to lose weight, start eating on a salad plate and have no more than 1 serving spoon of anything and about 3 oz of meat. Don't drink low fat milk, because it has sweeteners. Our plates were smaller then, we had very few plastics, and glasses were about 12 oz sized.
