    Do you eat trans fat? If you do, you're haven't been denied. Why you want to, I can't say, but you still can if you want to.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Irrellevant as to why I would want to.

    and yes, some of the bistros in ny that make the best frites are denied the tools to do so by government fiat.

    They are denied all kinds of poisoning, as they shold be. As I have shown, it's a health issue. But you still can eat trans fat if you want. Help, take any poison you like. Make it slow or fast. But taking responsible action on health issues is not limiting freedom. Would you argue for allowing crack in your food?

    move goal posts much?



    hyperbole much?


    trans fats =/= crack


    and as a very healthy specimen, I can eat the occasional frite cooked in trans fat and not be worse for wear. and if the government says "no" that is limiting freedom, newspeak much?

    No, they are not equal, transfats will kill you slower. But, the point is we do make restrictions all the time. This is not new. Once cocaine was an ingredient in soda, but we had them remove it. When we find something is a health concern, is it really unreasonable to remove it. I met your silliness with some of my own, but if you stop with the wild leaps, I'd be happy to do this rationally. Your freedom has not been infrindged any more than any other health concern regulation has throughout time. There was a reason pork was once deemed unsafe. And there are reasons to be concerned about transfats, and soda for that matter.

    Well, I make my own choices boo, you need the government to make yours. I guess that's where we differ.


    And your wrong, if I can't put fat and salt in my food, my freedom is restricted.

    You're opinon is duly noted, however RH is correct. Where does it stop? Are people not free to choose their own risks? By your statements, you could argue for all kinds of resitrictions, or prohibitions due to risk of health consequences. If the Government, (me and you) pays, then perhaps some restirctions are warranted, and rightly so, but the government needs to be consistent across the board. Outlaw hiking in public parks, climbing on public spaces, how about no snowball fighting in schools, how about not being allowed to build in fire zones, or hurricane, tornado zones? The list is immense, and to punish one private enterpise and not another is unfair.

    The suggestion to cut out soda is a good thing, but those that are unhappy with the current administration will complain that it is too much control.
