    I used to agree til Wendys came out with their fresh cut fries w/sea salt. They are so damn good! If you have not tried em? Please do. They beat MickeyD's fries hands down to me

Burger kings might as well be fry shaped turd, i wouldn't be able to tell the difference
    OMG! Those/KFC are so good! But they are not really FF. They are wedges so I do not count them as FF. BK's fries suck

    The fact is you just can't admit that your faux outrage is ridiculous, you have a chip on your shoulder.
    I'll accept your apology now:

    (Reuters) - First lady Michelle Obama has a message for the U.S. food and beverage industry: Take real steps to sell healthier products or the federal government will force you to do it.

    Obama has taken on childhood obesity as her signature issue, and President Barack Obama appointed her head of the interagency panel he formed to study it. The resulting obesity task force delivered its 70-point plan on Tuesday for reducing childhood obesity within a generation.

    "It's sending a polite but clear warning shot across the bow of industry, especially with regard to marketing to children," said Kelly Brownell, director of the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University and a leading proponent of using taxes to reduce consumption of sugary drinks.

    "The report says in no uncertain terms, 'clean up your act or we'll take action,'" he said.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    So that is OK?

    As long as it's for "the children", you'll nod your head and say "it's ok".

    Do children go grocery shopping? Do children make the buying decisions?

    Thank you for admitting I was right that Mrs. Obama is pushing the power of the Federal Government to regulate what we eat.

    Raising taxes on things that are unhealthier is not telling you what you can't eat any more then raising taxes on Tabbaco and alcohol to curb consumption is...

    Secondly this is an opinion piece...

    and thirdly its from last year...

    wanna fail any more?

    I didn't admit that. I was not debating that point with you. And that's advertising 101 friend. Children tell their parents to buy them stuff. Billions are spent a year from children telling their parents to buy them the latest whatever **** they see on TV.

    And this is different from how it is now.....how again?

    I see you are deliberately pretending my earlier post doesn't exist. Because if you did address it, you'd realize that the government is already doing this. And has for decades.

    Jet's not the one screaming regulation! Waving a link that shows there is nothing but the warning of the possibility. Jet's not the one making petty puerile attacks on a politician's spouse. Jet's not the one looking silly here.
