    Provider of information. And when the government does something, like provide a school meal, it shoudl be nutritious. It isn't really all that controversial when you think about it.

    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.

    Yes, I can definitely see the damage its doing to everyone, we're all rushing to get rid of it.

    Rap music
    Rock and Roll

    Not my fault if a kid gets Grand Theft Auto from their parents.

    single parents
    In some cases, not in all...

    abortion
    I really hate to say this, but in some cases it could be argued its had a positive effect on society, see theory behind massive drop in crime rates in the 90's vs. Abortion legalization.

    laying on sofa, watching TV
    not working, by choice
    Again, how does that effect YOU!

    bars
    Again, some not all.

    accepting subsidies just because you qualify
    If you build it, they will come.

    letting your pets reproduce
    wasting all day on DP

    We are spending billions on Michelle's little project.
    How much should we spend on the other things I listed that are harmful to society?

    I think you know, nobody would be complaining if this was just Michelle "encouraging" people to eat healthier.

    So there's not enough info out there already? We're bombarded with it.

    There's a lot of misinformation out there as well. The government can help with this. Not a real problem.

    Tell it to Mrs. Obama.

    And I hate to speak reality to you, but yes, you can tell an awful lot about someone by their appearance. Certainly not everything, because we're all born differently, but you can tell a lot. And you can definitely tell a lot after the first 10 minutes of watching or talking to them, too. Life is a constant job interview.

    And, why do we have to spend billions to stop feeding them burgers and fried and start serving them meats and veggies?
