    Re: CDC Chief: Soda Tax Could Combat Obesity

    Diet sodas are usually lodaded with aspartame which has not been tested for longterm effects on the body, though many advise against ingesting it. Your body stores it for years. Sugar is bad but I don't drink diet-anything.
    OMG, I am so addicted to artificial sweetener it's not even funny.
    Besides all the diet soda I drink, I also consume a box of 700 packets of Equal approximately every two months. I put it in my smoothies, on fruit, in ice tea, I sprinkle it on eggo waffles instead of powdered sugar...
    I'm addicted to it because it's so much sweeter than sugar. I've lost my taste for sugar entirely.

    How ironic. Gotta love capitolism!

    Give the farmers subsities (sp) to grow a mountain of corn. Put corn syrup into just about everything that has taste. Make the nation one of the most obese on the globe.


    Then tax it.....

    Wait a minute, you are actually accusing liberals of wanting to control everyone when many conservatives want to control people that are gay from being married.

    I call that ****ing ironic.

    BTW as a liberal, I don't approve of this tax.

    "We need cigerrette style taxes on:

    Anything with HFCS in it
    All red meats
    All shellfish
    All pastries
    Any food that is fried
    Any fruit juices including any additives
    Anything containing alcohol
    Any bread outside of 100% whole wheat
    Eggs
    Pork
    Coffee
    Actually go with any food containing additional sugar or contains any caffine.

    I mean, they all are bad for you in some way shape or form. Everything that isn't a vegetable (except for potatoes, we can tax those, they're extremely high stachy that leads to obesity) or a fruit should be taxed on a similar rate to cigerettes. I mean, its for your own good"

    Of course, if you're going to be effective you can't simply tax consumable. You have to go after and get rid of the things that have proven themselves deadly...namely the private owernership of guns.

    This must be abolished.

    I suppose, however, gun-owners will eventually be burdened with an punitive tax for simply exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.

    Naturally, this will have to be done to fight the increasing cost of health care in the country.

    Dude,

    I feel your pain .........

    But.............................................

    You just described every Rush Limbaugh, "Sean Hannity type," butt-buddy out there and I would hardly call them liberal.

    However, you did, to your credit, acknowlege the extreme righties as being the same.

    So you get an "A" for fair and balanced.


    Just sayin'.......
