    Why dont we just garnish everyones wages and just allow them enough money to pay their bills. Then we will have enough money for health care,and I can eat my twinkies in peace without all this guilt.

    Yu know ,one can justify that everytime I eat a pizza or a wendy burger I am actually stealing from society,,maby these actions should be criminalized.

    A little alcohol is good for you by the way. We should be giving tax credits for that.

    I would argue that the western diet does more to lower the overall life expectancy than anything other than infant mortality, and possibly cars.

    If you want to look at non-trauma causes of preventable death, diet would be #1 I bet. And diabetes is a HUGELY expensive, chronic condition to treat.

    I don't want to tax this stuff, just wish people would use more sense, but I know....wish in one hand and $#it in the other, and see which one fills up faster. (never tried that personally, but I bet I know the answer!)

    This boy is heading outside. Crisp, clear morning, at about 45 degrees, heading up to 70 here today. My dog is telling me to shut this thing off and run some marks!

    I do not buy fruit cakes. I just want the people that do send them at christmas time to pay taxes ten fold on them so I will never get another one in the mail.

    My Scottish grandfather had the best fruitcake recipe. It went something like gather the candied fruit, flour, yeast, and a bottle of good, aged scotch. Mix all the ingredients except the scotch, and throw them away. Enjoy what's left.
