    Regulations may very well keep us from dying - if regulations had been enforced perhaps those men working for BP wouldn't have been killed during that blowup in the Gulf, it's unregulated companies lthat could do us in, but oh, well, who gives a crap about regular folk, it's the wealthy and corporations that we are trying to keep from being over-taxed!
    How do you feel about regulations that have killed thousands and thousands og people?
    CAFE Standards Kill: Congress' Regulatory Solution to Foreign Oil Dependence Comes at a Steep Price
    Despite the new regulatory "reform," high gas prices have lawmakers in Washington debating, once again,8 whether to impose even steeper CAFE standards. For instance, Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) proposed burdensome across-the-board legislation to increase CAFE standards to 35 mpg on both light trucks and cars by model year 2017.9 Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA) have also recently called for CAFE increases.10
    But such increases have unintended safety consequences for the safety of drivers and passengers. The reason is because carmakers build lighter and smaller cars that burn less fuel to comply with CAFE standards.11 The trade-off is these lighter, smaller cars fare much worse in violent crashes, resulting in greater rates of death and injury for occupants.
    An extensive 1999 USA Today analysis of crash data found that since CAFE went into effect in 1978, 46,000 people died in crashes they otherwise would have survived, had they been in bigger, heavier vehicles. This, according to a 1999 USA Today analysis of crash data since 1975, roughly figures to be 7,700 deaths for every mile per gallon gained in fuel economy standards.14

    That's why I support the fair tax. No more tax breaks.

    A 36 pack case of ramen costs 5.88 at Sams Club (buy 2 for under $12). 4 potatos will run you 2 bucks. 2 Onions for a dollar. A block of generic cream cheese 1.30. A tub of margarine about $2. A big bag of mixed frozen veggies, $3. You can buy a big box of oatmeal for about 3 bucks. Assuming you have basics like sugar, salt and pepper (and if really want to live frugally, pick up ketchup, sugar, salt, pepper, hot sauce, mayo, mustard, and cracker packets everywhere you can for free). Should run you about $24.30. You arent living like a king but you can do just fine.

    Forget it. It's fair to everyone, including the rich. That will never work for liberals because it would end class warfare. They need someone to demonize.

    That is a big no if one has a heart condition.

    But I notice those on food stamps aren't buying things like that. They are buying name brand cereal and ground chuck. I'm buying store brand cereal and hamburger.

    Avoid the ramen, unless you skip the packet. I actually experienced a form of poisoning from too much ramen noodle dieting.

    I simply responded to Barb. Sure its not a GREAT diet and not one EVERY person could follow.

    Wait...why not? Buy the low sodium ramen...you still have veggies, starches, and a certain element of nutrition. Throw in 18 boiled eggs and cut them in half and dice into your meal and you are adding protein.

    I survived my early college and multiple military deployments eating a similar menu.

    The packet isnt necessary...I drain off the water, use a little cream cheese or butter. Believe me...you learn some gourmet tips when going on campouts...
