No, actually you said it was banned from public school lunches, not lunch programs. BIG difference.

You do understand what's going on right? They've only banned these foods when it's the taxdollars paying for it.

This is not some example of the boogey man food police impeding on your choices.

McDonald's was reserved for special occasions or long shopping trips (so once about every 2-3 weeks).

But, I ate PB&Js like crazy matched only by the gallons of milk to down them. Grape juice and apple cider ran through my veins as much as milk did. And, I swear my brother and I would just split a box of cereal every morning, using mixing bowls instead of regular bowls.
However, I played outside by myself or with neighbor kids every nice day, and I played soccer from the age of 5 up to high school. I was always in very good shape.

Now, my nephews get winded climbing stairs.

Saturday nights were steamed shrimp and a glass of soda. The homemade pizza kits during the late sixties were really gross. Chef boy r dee. So we didn't eat them. We ate hot and cold cereals. Always topped with fresh fruit. I adore bananas on corn flakes and especially berries with Irish oatmeal. My comfort food.

Eggs, bacon and toast were a special, Sunday morning breakfast, after church. We walked to school and weather permiting, always played outside. I loved riding my bike and roller skating. I was great at kick ball. Those ballet classes really payed off!

I still walk to the K-Mart or shopping mall. Both are several blocks away. No need to take the car. Unless, I am buying something which is heavy for me to carry home.

i go to a small asian supermarket chain for my fruit, veges and selected meats. massive jump in quality and massive reduction in price.

Governments investing in public transport, particularly rail, is good for the health of the populace as at least people will walk to the nearest train station instead of just getting into their cars - which presumably a true libertarian like Iron Horse opposes, as government must not be spending taxpayers money on such frivolous non-essentials as a good railway system.
I think you have a good point here.

I see young parents picking up their children at school with their car, mini vans, etc. When the child lives well within a moderate walking distance.

I can understand it. If it is bad weather. But, on a daily basis? It isn't needed. Why not walk to the school, pick up your child and walk home together. Talk with them. The memories will be precious.

Unfortunately, there's also the fact that some people live in areas where walking home isn't exactly the safest way to travel. I'll gladly walk around my town when possible, and I'm taking public transportation partly because I don't have a driver's license (and do like taking it) and partly because, even if I did, we have no working cars right now anyway. But there are parts of my town that I wouldn't really feel comfortable walking through. Especially at night.

I fully support taking walks, or carpooling, and stuff of that nature. Absolutely, go for it if you can-the benefits are worth it. Just that, unfortunately, in some places, that's easier said than done.

We have a pretty awesome Asian grocery store in our neighborhood, and it's the size of a small-ish regular grocery store. The two problems are that you would NEVER find it unless someone showed you where it was (it's tucked back in a small industrial area), and the public transit isn't as convenient for it as it is with our other grocery stores.

So many inner city people don't have cars, often have a kid or two in tow, and they need the most convenient location for stores possible.

But truthfully, Minnesota's mediocre, urban grocery stores are still probably light years ahead of many other cities' stores.

good.

this doesn't take away personal choice. you can still choose to be a fatty fatty boom batty... just not going to pay for it with state and city funds.

considering that if you're getting food stamps from the state there's a fairly good chance that the government may also be paying for your health care when needed, so yea...

How about making them walk to the government office to pick up the food stamps, too?

Just sayin'...


I'm for a strong social safety net, but some effort on the part of those needing assistance isn't a crime.

Speaking of government-assisted healthcare...instead of having our ERs flooded with the uninsured, why not have state university medical and dental students practice in some free clinics? --good experience for the students, possibly good healthcare for the uninsured.

(Although I'm for Universal Healthcare.)

Well, I wish the university veterinarians were cheap or free. They're f-n expensive.

I knew there was a reason diet drinks sucked .

Seriously, though, if Glenn seems to be having some eye and throat troubles, sorry to hear that and I hope he gets the problems sorted out. But that site-while I'm certainly not going to argue that we have crap being put in our food and drink that doesn't need to be there (though I'm not helping matters by consuming some of that stuff), uh, yeah. Wow. Paranoid much?

I've been off Diet Coke (and aspartame) since the beginning of summer. Not that I was a total addict, but I tried it again a couple of weeks ago and felt sick the next day.

Glenn Beck routinely attracts millions of viewers every week. If he understands his medical problems may be directly linked to aspartame and he informs his audience of this, it will be a major victory for truth and a massive defeat for the elite eugenicists and their long held plan to not only enslave humanity, but reduce its numbers significantly.
The Illuminati are indeed fiendish and cunning.

The website is designed for conspiracy nuts. The guy who runs it has made a small fortune on spreading the conspiracy that 911 was an inside job.
