    Studies show that only 1 out of 4 meet the standards to qualify for the military. The main problem being obesity. here are so many overweight people now that it is seen as a threat to national security and the military is concerned.

    Right now our health is controlled by insurance companies who don't give a fart as long as they are making money and the less care we get he more money they make. My aunt's doctor prescribed some new medicine for her. When she sked if the new pills work better than the ones she was taking he said no. When she asked him why he was changing her prescription if the new pills didn't work any beater he said because her insurance would no longer pay for the pills she had been taking Insurance companies don't know anything about medicine yet it's the goldren Rule: he who has the gold makes the rules.

    But choosing between insurance companies controlling our health or the military controlling it is kinda like choosing a cobra and a rattle snake. Would you rather be eaten by a lion or a bear?
