I just heard on the news the reporter comment on the outlandish and exuberant amount of calories consumed today as opposed to normally in America. That’s gross, especially considering the “norm” in America!! It’s disgusting how fat this country is and disgusting how our holidays revolve around food. It’s grotesquely self-centered.
First of all, the gluttonous modern America. We eat, eat, eat. Then we cry about how fat we are. But we are too lazy to exercise. We spend so much money to have others make us do work but, when that doesn’t work, we instead buy fitness video games and calorie apps that will theoretically encourage us to change without actually altering our lifestyles too much. Hormones, fast food, lack of work ethic… Our future generations are screwed.
But how do we make these things worse? We overindulge regularly, then the holidays hit and it’s like a dam breaking. Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Sure, these days were once centered around the table for that rare full meal or for scraping up the best that you couldn’t afford. Today, it’s blind overindulgence and greed. Furthermore, holidays like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July are days meant to remember veterans and those who sacrificed for you to be alive and free and not starving. It is NOT a holiday for barbecues and getting drunk!! What is WRONG with today’s world? I hate holidays like this. I hope you at least have more than food to think about today and in every other day of your life.
