    That’s still just the "dinky gulp’.

    If buckets of corn sugar is what people want buckets of corn sugar is what people will get.

    Suicide is perfectly legal, as long as it is done slowly.



    In fact, with the nation as a whole engaged in slow suicide, living for today at the expense of tomorrow, why prevent individuals from doing the same?

    As George Carlin once said; “Life is just a pre-cancerous condition!”

    But it’s acceptable to be able to smoke 3 packs of cigarettes a day anywhere one pleases. It’s okay to consume alcoholic beverages, drive drunk, and kill people.

    I’m not sure where you live, but where I live, drunk driving, and murder is still illegal.

    “If buckets of corn sugar is what people want buckets of corn sugar is what people will get.”

    You mean high fructose corn syrup. There’s a big difference. Its chemical makeup puts it higher on the glycemic index and makes it worse for you than sugar.

    Foods processed and sold by the corporate machine is usually about taste and profits, not nutrition. High fructose corn syrup has replaced sugar in many foods and is found in foods you wouldn’t think of as sweetened.

    the war on drugs is going so well, it only makes sense to start illegalizing more stuff for being unhealthy

    I appreciate your satire. I got quite a chuckle.I would just like to add that it’s not only eating unhealthful foods that is making our nation obese; it’s also the amazing QUANTITY that people eat. When I eat out, I am astounded by the amount of food on other diners’ plates.

    When I eat out I am amazed at the amount of food they put on my plate. Portion size has been expanding since at least the 80’s. I have never been a light eater and I have problems finishing a meal at a restaurant these days. Having been raised in a large poor household I also have issues leaving food on the plate… I hate to say it but perhaps some portion control would do the country a world of good. The military already is concerned that American’s are getting to fat to serve.

    Smart move to take your bike; prevents you from buying too much unnecessary crap which you will eventually sell from your own garage/yard.

    If we can avoid jumping to conclusions for just one minute, I’d like to suggest that there is actually something here worth thinking about. Of course, people have their own positions on whether or not it is the governments’ job to protect people from themselves and both sides have their merits. I just can’t help thinking about motorcycle helmet laws. Underlying these was the knowledge that, without the law, many people (men) would choose to go helmetless because it’s kind of macho, or because they’ll be perceived as wimps if they wear one. The law removed that onus, making it socially acceptable to wear a helmet and many lives have been saved as a result. Was this unacceptable government interference? It’s not a simple question. There’s also the question of social responsibility on the part of the food industry. They are poisoning us with the chemicals and empty calories, are they criminals? Should they be? Just asking.
