    Health is so critical to a properly functioning society, I'd have been happy with spending a lot more on it.

    The war in Iraq was a total waste of money and lives, I think this has value. Don't sweat the small stuff Mellie.

    Sorry, but I cannot see how this Food Plate is going to take a person who loves to eat potato chips and sit on their ass all day and change them into a fit person. Everyone knows how to be healthy...it's common sense. If you WANT to be healthy, you generally can be if you work for it. The government cannot change people who don't want to be healthy.

    I understand and respect your opinion on the Iraq war. But if we continue to let all this "small stuff" go through, it adds up to a lot.

    no, they don't. but why not educate them so when it's time for them to do so, they will make good choices?

    On the list of things to bitch and whine about, it's right up there with Palin painting a flag on her bus.
