Government overreach always starts in small steps.Some may say meh no big deal but open your minds and look at the big picture.

I disagree with this but always find it interesting how so many who rail on about the govt getting into what we consume, food, support the failed drug war which is also about what we consume.

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

Yep we are much too ignorant to make our own decisions when it comes to food and drink.If I wanted to eat junk and become big and fat by God thats what i'd do! There are other ways to encourage moderation this isn't one of them.To me it is more about control and seeing how far it will be allowed to go.

I've been told obesity does affect others since we have to pony up costs for their medical issues whether thru Medicaid or private ins or even cash patients. Maybe not dangerous but costly.

Either consenting adults can ingest what they choose, as long as they don't infringe on others rights, or they can't. Just my opinion.

I think working to make healthy food more readily available and affordable would make more sense...

Puzzling out motive doesn't usually take more than following the money trail :( Pretty sad

If you live in NY or CA you are told what to eat/drink, where you can live, what you drive, what you used to heat your house, etc all thanks to the do gooders that know better.
