    Fine, they can dress up as Aunt Jemima and I will dress up as Cracker Jack.

    You know.... the racist caramel covered popcorn.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    This amazes me... the woman built a career based on the worst possible diet imaginable. Leading people like a pied piper to the gates of chronic disease.. including Cardio-vascular, COPD, Type-II, fatty liver disease.. requiring constant treatment and medication... when most (80%) are curable through diet and exercise. Why should insurance pools be drained by self indulgent gluttons, driving up health costs for everyone? They suck up over half of all medical services... so when you can't get the doctor you want or have to wait three days for an appointment, when your healthcare payments increase, thank folks like Paula Deen.

    Getting this woman off the air is saving lives, reducing strain on medical services and improving the economy. I'm only half kidding.

    Did I say that? But, just how far do you progressives want to take your white guilt?

    You're kidding right? Tell is man, how much of a fan were you before this manufactured smear? I know, you are still talking about it 3 weeks later because Paula Dean is just so damned important to what's happening today right? : roll:

    You know, people can simply choose not to cook and eat her recipes?

    PS you seem a bit of a social control freak

    Most people just eat cheesecake.. this woman is going to empower you with the knowledge of how to deep fry it.

    I'm saying the gluttony this inspires impacts us all. In an epidemic of obesity and chronic disease, to listen to complaints about healthcare from individuals who make little effort for their own health is CRAZY!

    I'm just pointing out hypocrisies. I don't care what you do.. as long as you want to pay for it out of pocket and it doesn't affect the rest of us.

    Yeah, and people are still free not to deep fry it

    Your earlier complaint was that she had a cooking show and that people would mimic her. My response was to point out they are free not to.

    Now you're going on some rant about healthcare complaints and people not taking care of their health? Maybe try to focus that indignant outrage before unleashing it on the interwebs, mate

    Then you should complain about health policy, not cooking shows and people freely engaging in eating unhealthy food

    I've never been a fan, and it's not a manufactured smear. Do yourself a favor and do a little research, read a little bit more about it before you make yourself look silly by blaming this on Obama. Oh wait - you are one of those who blame everything on Obama. You just can't help it.

    Carry on, just don't be surprised that people snicker behind your back.

    Their self induced chronic diseases impact all of us. Food IS medicine... and can be an addiction. Fat addiction, sugar addiction, salt addiction...

    So according to you, the best way to address addiction is to glorify it and show them how to cook their next fix... and make it all socially (and commercially) acceptable? Let's give crackheads cocaine and show them how to freebase it through reality TV. Let's allow cigarettes to be advertised on TV and sell them to children. There really is a thin line between these things.

    It's not about social control, it's about social responsibility and self control and commercial forces allied against those virtues.
