People complain about the high cost of health care now. Just wait until these little porkers grow up and need someone to pay for their extraordinary medical costs.

And yet parents and schools encourage elementary children to sell cookie doe and candy for their fundraisers.

We have no one to blame but ourselves. The worst part is we aren't doing anything to fix the problem. We think it's good enough just to talk about it.

Most people don't know anything about science, premed anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, biology, zoology, nutrition, health, etc.

Teachers are the worth offenders. They would sneak kids candy and also have soda at elementary parties instead of water, milk or juice boxes.

Gorge must have the arteries of a 90 year old. He looks like he tanned with Coppertone to get an orange tint after people posted he looked black. How funny. What does his DNA say he is as far as origin?

Mestizo. Why does Silly-Potty love him so? Is he a relative?

In other places, she calls people like him a Mish-Mash gene pool.
What kind of "treatment" is she on? Is this common for diabetics with
high cholesterol, high blood pressure and other health issues? She is a mess and not a hot mess.
