He'd probably be best off doing some time in his army ... I'd imagine they'd have some fitness and weight standards that he'd have to satisfy. He could use it as a propaganda plug to show he is fit, strong, healthy (much like Putin uses his shirtless and judo shoots in Russia).

We should send him a copy of Richard Simmons' "Sweatin' to the Oldies".

Kim: What is this American shit! It is brilliant! How wrong I was! America is the greatest nation on earth! Thank you Richard Simmons for opening my eyes to the truth!

Trying to reason with conservatives on why we need a social safety net:

You can't just tell somebody to go out and work hard and they'll make it. Some people cannot, either temporarily or permanently, make a living to a level in which they can subsist. An optimized system recognizes this spectrum of abilities, from those who can be rehabilitated in full, or to a degree, or not at all, and responds accordingly.

Telling someone who is physically, mentally, developmentally, or emotionally handicapped to just go out and work and stop taking other people's money is not a solution.

How do you tell someone to pick themselves up by their bootstraps who is a double amputee, has no feet, and no shoes by which straps they have to pick themselves up?

This is like telling someone with no legs, "Go out and run the race."

"But I have no legs, sir."

"Well that's a poor excuse! Have you ever tried?"

"No sir, I have no legs. I tried telling..."

"Bullhonkey! That's just a defeatist attitude! You wimp, you're going to give up without even giving it a try?"

"Good Lord, man, I have no legs. I've been trying to tell you.."

"Excuses, excuses. Take a walk, loser."

"I have no legs!"

"Oh, right. Well fuck you any way. Thank you Rush Limbaugh! "

a family friend of mine has muscular dystrophy and can't move her legs at all and has trouble moving her arms but she has an office job.

So how do I "tell someone to pick themselves up by their bootstraps who is a double amputee, has no feet, and no shoes by which straps they have to pick themselves up?"

The same way I tell someone who functionally has no legs and has limited movement of her arms to pick herself up.
