    I ****ing love it, they put "protein" so they don't offend vegetarians.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    If it is shown to have a demonstrable positive effect on people's dietary habits, then maybe it was worth it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    because the change cost 2 million. So basically 2 tomahawk cruise missiles.

    no way to tell, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it definitely won't have any effect. People are susceptible to the suggestions of the images they see, and honestly this graphic makes a hell of a lot more sense than the food pyramid.

    Here's how I see it...

    If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, you will.

    If you want to eat Cheetos and gain 50 pounds, you will.

    No "Food Plate" is going to change it.
