    Nothing always works, be it the government or the private sector. But often things do improve, or manage.

    I just think it's more about big government control, especially over parents and children.
    I think things like this should be in the hands of state or even local governments where there is a need.
    I honestly don't think our children are going "hungry." That wording is just to make the bill more palatable to those of us who want less government control over our lives.

    If I had self control, I doubt I'd ever seen 350 to start with.

    You are free to revel in your paranioa. More logical folks will be happy to discuss concerns of actual relevence.

    You need to experience a Buca di Beppo (Italian restaurant). I guarantee a "small" serving of any plate could feed an entire family, and some would still be left on the plate.

    The portions here can be ridiculous. We make a point to always take it home, rather than stuff ourselves senseless.

    Yep, I did that when I was younger. It'll catch up with later. At 350 I was running 4-5 miles a day. I lifted weights as well. Always have (though I lift fewer today). Today I run 7-10 miles a day, every day, eat less than 2100 calories a day, and struggle to stay below 200 lbs. What you do today, you have to do for life.
