    A vending company providing healthier drink choices is 'exploiting children for profit'?

    They have an "in," don't they?

    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.

    I'm on the Walton and Johnson Diet: eat less, move around more.
    The REAL problem is that kids don't exercise, they sit on their posteriors watching TV (the same as their parents), play video games and the parents don't give a damn about "Health" period!!! Wait till the kids become adults and they will start drinking alcohol beverages just like their parents do also. Setting a "healthy" example starts in the home.
    Look at the smoking going on and who permits it?? the government does. If the government was so concerned about every body's health they should ban tobacco and alcohol, but NO!!! They have to have "the tax money" from both of them.
    This is hypocritical as hell.
    Catch me if you can.

    The real question is, whats healthy about it? If you think that slice of processed cheese counts as dairy, I think you're losing it a little my old friend
    That is my story and I am sticking to it....
    actually, I rarely get a hamburger, usually get chicken sandwich. We just got a Chick Filet here in Logan, that is my favorite.

    Many people add salt without tasting first. Try tasting first, and I bet most people will refrain from adding more salt..
