16. Why do so many poor people struggle with weight problems? Because good nutritional food

costs more than the empty calorie foods, that's why.

I know that the quality of the foods I've been buying with my paycheck have gone down, down, down, even as the price has gone up, up, up. I used to be able to buy quality foods for half of what I'm paying for groceries now, like I used to be able to do, but it wouldn't be enough to feed my family for half the month.

You really don't know what you are talking about. Starbucks coffee? No. Not even McDonald's coffee.
