Well guess what

Hey fatty put down them french fries. You wanted to know what was next for the government control, and I was messing around with the scale in the Fast Food joints.
Look at this:http://wtop.com/index.php?nid=106&sid=828349

> NYC Councilman Proposes Limiting Fast Food
> Jun 21st - 5:24pm
>
> NEW YORK (AP) - In a town where you can get a slice
of pizza or a hot dog
on nearly every block, one city councilman wants to
limit the number of fast
food restaurants as a way to fight obesity.
>
> Councilman Joel Rivera, health committee chairman,
said at a hearing
Wednesday he was exploring the idea of using zoning
laws to prevent fast
food joints from taking over city streets. More than
half of adult New
Yorkers are overweight or obese.
>
> "You're not going to totally eliminate fast food
restaurants, but you
could limit the amount," Rivera said after the
hearing.
>
> He said there is a high concentration of fast food
eateries in low-income
communities, and suggested that might to contribute to
obesity rates, which
also tend to be greater in those areas.
>
> Rivera said he plans to hold hearings on the matter
_ particularly to
explore whether New York City zoning laws could be
tweaked so specifically.
>
> Mitchell Moss, professor of urban policy and
planning at New York
University, said it's unlikely any zoning resolution
could dictate that
level of detail. The zoning code for eating and
drinking establishments does
not distinguish types of food.
>
> "And in a city like New York, where everybody is on
the run, it's very
hard to single out what is and isn't fast food," Moss
added.
And wear ATGATT case you slip getting some napkins, we will adjust the scale for your gear.

This councilman is a fool. His position would be the same to say if we limit the amount of trash cans in a home we can reduce garbage.
We had a state wide ban on smoking in restaurants and bars a few years back. That sounded like a great idea at the time. Second hand smoke and all. The next step was no smoking at many beaches. Then, earlier this year some high school student got a lawyer,sued for health issues and got smoking banned all together in two cities. Indoor,outdoor, your car etc. Everywhere but your home.That will be next. So, my question is at what point will they say that the air pollution needs to be controlled by limiting the miles per day that I can drive. It will never end folks ,until the government has a choke hold on every aspect of our lives. Amazingly our founding fathers saw this coming because they lived through it and guaranteed out rights forever by allowing us to keep and bear and arms . That little right was not to protect us from external aggressors but from our own government.

Councilman

must have someone in his back pocket. Limit the venues and you just steer the masses to the ones that are open. Bunk!

Belongs in chit chat. 3,2,1....

Here's my brilliant idea to end obesity that is bound to work:

1. The guv mint buys everybody in the country a subscription to Nutrition Action Health Letter. http://www.cspinet.org/nah/. It's $10.00 for a year. Inside you'll find out why watermelon is better for you than Dreyer's ice cream (also known as food porn) and why cooked fresh spinach (not raw) and turkey is about the best thing you can eat versus french fries, cheese and red meat. (also food porn) After a few months you get to take a 100 question test on food, if you pass you get a gold star and a discount coupon booklet that is good for discounts on veggies at your local grocery store. If you fail, you die prematurely.

2. As part of the deal for getting the free newsletter you need to register with your physician your actual weight - which you do anyway since you get a yearly physical - also paid for by the guv -mint.

3. For every 10 lbs. in weight you lose during a year over your "target weight" - as defined by your physician - you get a $1000.00 tax credit. If you are morbidly obese you could easily get up to $10,000.00 a year tax credit - and that ain't chump change.

4. The following year if you gain the weight back you get to pay a similar penalty which funds a national TV campaign sponsored by the guv mint reminding everyone that obesity kills. Dr. Oz shows you graphic pictures of actual fatty human hearts, brains, blown arteries, etc. It ain't pretty.

5. Wait a minute - if the guv mint pays for all of this - doesn't that mean that WE are paying for it?

6. We already ARE paying for it to the tune of $122.9 billion in related health costs not including lost productivity and emotional problems. We are also raising a generation of fat, lazy, stupid kids. They are going to be running the country in 20 years. (There is lots of evidence that suggests if you are fat you are indeed also stupid. Obesity affects the brain, too.)

...and the ones running the country today are the dope-smoking hippies from 40 years ago....

More propaganda... I agree that obesity IS an issues - hey I'm about 70 pounds overweight, so I can relate. I loves my fries and burgers!

But relating a physical attribute to how smart someone is just does not make any sense. Smacks of the TV infomercials/books "What they don't want you to know..." by the legendary Kevin Trudeau. ( ).

What GoVeg.com wants you to know:

"The fact that obesity lowers intelligence is especially disturbing considering that nearly one in five American adults are obeseóthat means that more than 52 million adults in this country might be suffering from impaired mental functioning. To make matters worse, we are facing an obesity epidemic in this country among both adults and children. And kids in the U.S. are getting fatter for the same reasons that adults are getting fatter: The typical American diet, which emphasizes animal foods, is high in fat and cholesterol and is the major cause of obesity. In contrast, vegetarians are much less likely to be obese than their meat-eating counterparts.
Sadly, this obesity epidemic may be affecting our childrenís mental health. Kids who are overweight not only suffer from the psychological trauma associated with lack of peer acceptance, but may be suffering other mental challenges as a result of their meaty diets. According to research published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, the average I.Q. of American children is 99, while the average I.Q. of American vegetarian kids is 116."

Would you like that order supersized, sir?

(I had a nice juicy rare charcoal broiled filet mignon for dinner last night. It's actually very low fat compared to other cuts of beef. I just reduced my life expectancy by 30 seconds and I'll probably get stomach cancer. It was worth it.)
