    President Barack Obama has seized more land for the federal government than any other president in American history. To date, he has unilaterally taken over 260 million acres of land and water, giving control and ownership over to the feds.

    Interesting. Now where did I put those Doritos…

    Junk food cravings are triggered by the mere thought of being low class http://arstechnica.com/science/2016/12/junk-food-cravings-are-triggered-by-the-mere-thought-of-being-low-class/
    “It’s well established that people with low economic status are the hardest hit by the current obesity pandemic, as well as related health problems such as diabetes. Poor healthcare, stress, unhealthy lifestyles, and a cornucopia of cheap junk food are all thought to play a role. But a new study suggests there’s a subconscious component, too.

    When researchers merely prompted study volunteers to consider themselves low-class, they were more likely to prefer, choose, and eat larger amounts of food, as well as higher-calorie foods. The findings, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, echo what’s been seen in a variety of animals—from birds and rodents to nonhuman primates. Thus, the authors speculate that the mental glitch may be an evolutionary holdover intended to boost survival by compensating for a lack of social and material resources.

    More important for humans, the findings suggest that we may not be able to tackle obesity by just improving access to healthier foods and promoting exercise.”

      “We low class eaters don’t believe most of what we hear.According to science,our diet is going to kill us.I would rather be happy to eat what feels good than eat pablum to live another 2.5 years Darth

        Nobody is telling you what to eat. That isn’t the point. The study focuses on socioeconomic drivers that impact behavior. “Among social animals, subordinate status or low social rank is associated with increased caloric intake and weight gain. This may reflect an adaptive behavioral pattern that promotes acquisition of caloric resources to compensate for low social resources that may otherwise serve as a buffer against environmental demands.”

        In other words: in a country with few social safety nets, half of the working population either at or below the poverty level, and 28 million people still without healthcare of ANY kind, evolution drives us to prepare:
