    Barry Goldwater was opposed to the government involvement in social issues.
    His focus was on fiscal conservatism.
    The GOP doesn't even know what it means to be fiscally conservative these days. To the GOP "Conservative" means only two things, Anti-Reproductive Choice and Anti-gay rights.

    Obama won't be in for 7 years unless he comes clean, and just declares a dictatorship like he really wants.

    Those silly nutritionists at the Mayo Clinic actually believe that its a healthy meal. You should go there and set them straight. They must be starving their patients.
    LOL....from your own link: Romaine lettuce is flavorful and has more vitamin A, vitamin C, folate and calcium than does iceberg lettuce.

    Aside from that....now you add in Croutons, Ceasar Dressing, Cheese....your price reference just went up. You aren't getting this for $3.

    No **** Sherlock, nothing gets by you!....... coupled with say, a chicken breast ($1.50), and a Butternut winter squash ($.50) you can feed 4 for a buck per head.

    Of course you have to do all of those boring, and time consuming things like cooking and washing dishes.

    do you use the entire bottle of dressing? Or the entire block of cheese for one salad? Ofcourse you can make a salad for about .50 to .75 cents per person.

    As a result, usually the option that people in these areas have are to either trek to other areas in public transit and haul back their groceries, or shop the smaller markets near their homes that often charge much more than the larger markets because they don't have the volume and therefore cannot offer the same prices.
    Supermarkets build in suburubs with huge parking lots. In the middle and upper class suburbs, people drive there. With lower class areas, these people often can't drive there for one reason or another. The supermarket, though, still needs a lot of people in order to be profitable. So when you don't allow lower class areas to get dense, supermarkets won't be profitable.

    What about fast food places? Small parking lots. They don't require as many people as supermarkets because they are smaller operations.

    So what does this mean? When you have uniform density, lower class areas will have a lower amount of supermarkets and higher amount of fast food places (due to people still needing food and fast food places being more accessible to the poor in low density areas than supermarkets). Don't blame markets, blame the government for not allowing higher density.

    Well...now you are getting substantially higher than the $3 price point. And I want to know wear you live that you can buy a Butternut squash for 50 cents.

    I think there are some meals that you can make in that range...but that's pushing it.
    To make a truly nutritious meal for a family with three kids, I think you are pushing it for under $10.
    Don't cook much do you? I do daily so I know what it costs for what.

    If you're poor, you should probably abstain from croutons.

    I can see what you are saying....and it makes perfect sense. I don't know that government doesn't allow higher density though. Does it? I live in Los Angeles....and the housing is pretty dense, especially in the less affluent areas. Maybe its different in other parts of the country.
    But that is one of the reasons why the LA city council put a moratorium on fast food opening in poor areas, because all you see block after block is fast food....which supports my original premise on this particular issue that childhood obesity is directly related to cheap fast food as opposed to the costs of providing healthy nutritious meals.
