    Just think guys when you destory all self responsibility, and all results of bad decisions, then you can sit around the table and bitch about people making bad decisions with their eating habits. Makes sense right? Yeah, ofcourse it does.

    Actually your post is rather confusing. Making people not responsible for decisions means we get to bitch about their decisions?

    If I want to follow the Bible and help my fellow man, I will do so.... of my own volition. I do NOT need the federal government to be the middleman, or force me to help my fellow man.

    Some schools even ban their kids from brining in tonic to schools.. my high school had tonic machines in the school cafeteria and I would partake of one two or three times a week.. I am not obese by any stretch of the imagination... let parents make decisions and educate their children to make healthy choices... I wouldn't mind similiar programs from local and state governments, but this goes well beyond the intended scope of the federal government...

    Read The Bill: S. 3307 - GovTrack.us

    It wouldn't let me copy. but check out the things on wellness. Sounds like they will be coming into home day cares to make sure the kids are eating right and getting proper excercise. I babysit sometimes for 3 kids. Their parents are on food stamps. Can I look forward to a social worker coming to the house and taking away their ice-cream?

    oh...wait...thats precisely what we are doing...sans the 'seize' part.

    When does it end? And how do we CONTINUE to sustain these endless social programs? Who pays for it? Wait...I have an idea...lets start there...All the people that believe this is a good idea...YOU pay for it. Voluntarily...out of your pocket...because its what you believe is the right thing to do.
    I think it will end with condoms.

    Just gve them a hot meal and a condom and that will be it.

    No more.

    That's all.

    I promise.

    OK, maybe a glass of wine.

    Why can't state and local governments make that determination?

    It's bad to have money taken from you, even if you can afford it. But the government is also taking away money that may well have found it's way into a foodbank or helping a friend, family, or stranger in need. It is taking away the feeling people get when they are charitable. People don't get that happiness when paying taxes.
