    Telling me to go elsewhere if I don't agree with you is bullying. I don't expect a conservative to understand because it seems to be their nature.

    It absolutely limits the rights of the business owner to implement his business model. The encroachment by the government in this begins before the food ever hits the table.
    That certainly has to be the most lame ****ing argument I've seen from you. You really should be ashamed at that one. Let's let the business owner add Melamine to their foods too if they want because we certainly wouldn't want to do anything to diminish corporate profits...

    Hardly. If you are going to be on a public road, following public safety laws is not an infringement of your liberty. Nice try though.
    It certainly is an infringement but I understand if you need to simply oppose me.

    OK, so you don't understand the difference between the personal and the editorial "you".

    I don't expect a liberal to take the time to understand plain English when they can just throw the victim card instead because it seems to be their nature.

    We're done here.

    Well you can see how certain ones are already getting hysterical over simply being opposed on the matter. God forbid someone not want some liberal loon making their dramatics into laws. Then you're just "bullying".

    I'm just amazed at the number of people who want the government to do their thinking for them.

    Dumb people that buy processed food? I look at it like I do abortion. I can actually see both sides of the debate, but it doesn't concern me either way. I'd never get an abortion, legal or not, and the sodium content isn't going to impact how much processed food I eat.

    On the one hand, I generally don't like the government telling businesses how to run their show (except in some cases). However, the businesses seem to be completely on board with this, so it can't be that big a deal to them.

    On the other, people are really dumb. If it was just a couple people that were really dumb, I wouldn't have much of a problem with it. But the majority of Americans are overweight and that worries me.

    I'd rather have the choice to add salt or not not some corporation.

    You have that choice now. Buy something else if you don't like what they put in it.

    What is the matter with expanding choices for the individual? Nothing is the matter with that.

    I do not think you realize how much sodium is in our food chain:

    “The American Heart Association recommends that most people strive to lower the amount of sodium consumed daily to less than 1,500 mg, to prevent or manage high blood pressure, a major but modifiable risk factor for heart attack and stroke,” Van Horn said. “The new CDC data adds to a growing body of scientific evidence that supports this recommendation – there are now a substantial number of scientific studies that show a direct relationship between salt intake and a rise in blood pressure. An upper limit of no more than 1,500 mg could significantly reduce the rate of high blood pressure in the United States.”

    The U.S. food supply contains excessive amounts of sodium (salt), which makes limiting sodium (salt) consumption to less than 1,500 mg difficult. According to the CDC report, Americans over the age of 2 consumed a daily average of 3,436 mg between 2005-2006, up from a daily average of 3,329 mg from 2001-2002.

    American Heart Association supports lower sodium limits for most Americans

    Then don't buy food from that corporation if you don't like the content of their product.
