    That wasn't my point.

    When you take away one freedom on a loosely based correlation, then none of our freedoms are safe.

    Nor should they be.

    Then push to ban ground beef, hamburger buns and fried potatoes... See how well that agenda flies with the American public.

    You're asking someone with an anti-libertarian worldview to consider public opinion? I don't care about their opinion.

    What I would do is end any sort of agriculture subsidy so that we can buy stuff like corn from third world countries cheap, and make eating well easier for the poor.

    You just backed up my statement that you're "Anti-American" and left no doubt about it.

    I'm pretty sure that expressing my view in the public sphere is as American as it gets.

    I'm not sure what this nonsense, reactionary accusation of "Anti-American" is, though.

    Last time I checked, corn was cheaper than a Happy Meal.

    Anyone want to address this one? I've already stated my views quite clearly.

    Eating well costs dough, lots of it.

    It costs dough because we subsidize American farming. Stop doing that, and good food gets cheaper for everyone.

    Last week, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors Land Use Committee voted 3-0 in favor of an ordinance (PDF) to limit toy giveaways in children's meals that have excessive calories, sodium and fat.

    well there is some sanity on display this week after all.
