Childhood Obesity, I think taxing everything is not very fair to those who don't abuse the consumption of those products. Why should I pay extra for some parents mistake in not enforcing moderation and exercise on their children?
"A strongly worded report on child obesity released on Tuesday recommends that state and local governments tax junk food and soft drinks, give tax breaks to grocery stores that open in blighted neighborhoods and build bike trails."

It's ironic. We are unhealthy because of the crap that is in the processed chemically based foods we eat. We choose to eat those foods. The FDA says those foods are "safe" for us. Now they want to tax us for eating those same foods. Stay out of our lives for the love of God, if we are stupid enough to eat the garbage that you approve shame on us. It is not the governments job to police our food and tell us what we should and should not eat.

Kids are overweight because: Parents don't parent. Parents are lazy and make poor choices for the lives they are responsible for. Now because the government deems these parents as incompetent to raise their children to make responsibledecisions, WE as a nation have to bare the burden..... Ridiculous. I want the government OUT of my families life. I make the best decisions for my children.. We do NOT need a nanny state because SOME Americans can't be responsible. Do people NOT realize that little bit by bit they are controlling more and more of your lives??? People who support government encroachment??? WHY? Where is personal responsibility in this nation? Death of Common Sense.
