Americans: Fat, Dumb and (un)Happy

The Federal Transportation Administration, in response to the reality of the expanding girth of Americans, has proposed raising the average passenger weight for calculating the safe loads of buses from 150 lbs per person to 175 lbs per person. This reflects CDC statistics of average weights of 165 lbs for women and 195 lbs for men.

Likewise, the Coast Guard has raised the estimated per-passenger weight for calculating the seaworthiness of vessels to 185 lbs per person; and the Federal Aviation Administration has raised the estimated weight of airline passengers to 195 lbs in winter and 190 lbs in summer.

Now, buses, boats and planes will be rated to carry fewer total passengers; meaning that delays will ensue, costs will climb, and in order to combat the delays, more buses, planes and boats will have to be purchased. More fossil fuels will be required. The individual cost may be low, but the aggregate cost is staggering.

We can look in a mirror and lie to ourselves; but the cold hard reality is that by these sorts of objective measures, Americans on average are likely the most overweight people ever to have existed on the planet in any substantial number. You don’t have to be a nutritional scientist to ascertain that something is terribly, terribly wrong.

Meanwhile, Newsweek gave 1,000 American citizens the standard citizenship we require of immigrants intending to become citizens. 38% flunked. These are not complicated questions, and they are written at a 6th grade level. A passing score is not very high either. Yet, amazingly enough, people who can’t even tell you how long the term is for a Senator get to vote for Senators. The teacher’s unions should be proud!

As if being fat and dumb were not enough; Americans seem to have hit a perfect 1,000 batting average, because according to WebMD the rate of anti-depression prescriptions doubled in nine years between 1996 and 2005. So we’re happy too.

Yet, people go on thinking that we should keep doing things the way we have been; even though objective measures in all realms indicate our society is in serious, serious trouble. Fat, dumb and happy is how you want your sheep that are prepared for slaughter, and most assuredly NOT how you want a supposedly self-governing citizenry.

    John Young did you send this to Superintendent Pedicone?

    Dear Superintendent Pedicone;

    We are writing in response to your letter to UNIDOS — the radical student group — and the Mexican American Studies Community Advisory Board wherein you meekly said you have now “advised” the TUSD governing board to “table and not consider the resolution to make Mexican American Studies an elective.”

    From EAU website:

    Such bald faced cowardice in the face of anti-European American ideology, (vouched for by video and transcript evidence) can only be described as a terminal onset of heinous surrender to the interests of the dwindling majority population of your state, and, by extension, the United States. You clearly are to myopic and politically correct to understand the irreparable damage you have caused to your own people.

    Assuredly, while your reaction to this letter from the Board of Directors of European Americans United is to call us (or anyone else) “racist,” you have fully shifted your ground and you are not at all dealing with facts or logic anymore. Past experience has proven us right on this issue every time, and obviously calls into question your credentials as a school district superintendent.

    Alfredo Gutierrez, political consultant, as quoted by Richard de Uriarte, The Phoenix Gazette, March 14, quoted in The ProEnglish Advocate, 1st quarter, 2002, said the following: “We call things racism just to get attention. We reduce complicated problems to racism, not because it is racism, but because it works.”

    One of the most difficult things for the diverse European American peoples to understand is that many people, like you, who claim to be multiculturalists are frauds. That is, the claim of national multiculturalism (as compared with an entirely legitimate international or global multiculturalism) is simply a cover story to accommodate the crafty obligation of a new monoculture in America. Moreover the tragic decline in white birthrates on a national scale augments your ill conceived decision.

    Therefore Mr. Pedicone the current mestizo obsession with dehumanizing white Americans is not principled in disagreement but as a way to intimidate whites with charges of implicit and explicit ‘racism’, and you fell for it in a big way.

    We therefore adamantly suggest that you either rescind your silly decision to table and not consider the resolution to make Mexican American Studies an elective or that you step down from your undeserved position as the TUSD school superintendant.

    Very truly;
    Drago Rendl,
    Frank Roman,
    John Young
    European Americans United, LLC

    I didn’t send it personally, but it was sent in my name and I approved it.
