    Americans have longer, but not necessarily healthier, lives due to high rates of preventable chronic disease, according to an annual report on the nation's health released on Tuesday.

    "Vermont was found to be the healthiest U.S. state thanks in part to a low incidence of infectious diseases, a low violent crime rate and a high rate of health insurance among its residents.

    Mississippi and Louisiana were found to be the unhealthiest states because of a high prevalence of obesity, diabetes and a low birth weight among infants, among other factors."

    THE REDNECK REPUBLICAN PARTY
    , well-represented by Mississippi and Louisiana, spends its time mocking any attempt at promoting wellness programs and expanding health insurance.

    STOP THE STUPIDITY.

    I'm pretty sure there's some sort of law that prevents the military from using its bombs on redneck states.

    And that's a shame, because the country would be better off without them. icon_twisted.gif
