    Now that you've issued a normative change that parents should undergo, how do you plan to make them do this?

    So, banning toys from Happy Meals will cure the obesity problem. Who knew it would be so easy.
    Seriously, what next? Mandatory daily exercise, gym memberships, or how about mandatory fruits and vegetables each day? After all Elena Kagan said that would be a stupid law but not unconstitutional.
    Besides, individual freedom should also include individual responsibility for health insurance.

    Better education, not banning a combo of a hamburger, fries, and a toy.

    You don't make them. This is America, and what parents feed their kids is up to them. You can educate parents about healthy diets for their children, but it is ultimately up to them, not the state, to make the decision on what food their children eat.

    Damnit!
    It's 3:19 - the kids will be home at 3:30 . . .and after seeing the title of this thread again and again I'm craving some nuggets with mayo and ketchup.
    ARG! Damn you!!!!

    You know what McD's needs to do - just drop the cost of a happy meal down .50 . . . and then charge, on the receipt, .50 for the toy.

    Done.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Aren't gays more likely to get AIDs? Isn't that costly to our health care system?

    I don't think they should be denied the right to have gay sex anymore than I think people should be denied the right to eat what they want.
