    Such ****ing bull****.

    If I want to limit the salt I eat, then *I* will limit the salt I eat. I sure as **** don't need the government to do it for me.

    It's really hard to take the salt out of food.

    I've recently begun the process of lowering my salt intake. I didn't even need the government to do it for me. Amazing, no?

    In other words, I think it's a good idea, but not something the government should be mandating.

    Then make other choices.

    Lord you conservatives are so prickly sometimes.

    I'm assuming you're okay with the government limiting the amount of ammonia in ground beef due to associated health problems?

    It's really easy to not eat foods that are salty. But sometimes I just want a damned bag of funions.

    You don't have an expectation of ingesting ammonia when you eat a hamburger.

    Ew.

    Again with the ammonia example. I mean, it's also really easy to grind your own beef. You can always add salt. And ammonia, if that's the way you roll.
