    Since the first statement is false, (ask McDonalds shareholders) the second question is irrelevant.

    But that's what you said in the OP so why are you repeating yourself?

    Speaking of drugs, I wonder what Michelle tells her daughters about cocaine since their daddy admites to useing it and proudly said he smoked pot and inhaled "that's kinda the point". Does she say now dearies, no Big Mac's but smoking pot and crack cocaine is ok.

    pot isnt a drug,and illa rgue other conservatives on this,it grows in the ground.that spice crap made in labs kills people and people use it in record numbers because pot is illegal.


    cocaine just kills,it has a very usefull but limited use in medicine,all other caines remove the high but keep the numbing effect,so beyond an extreme few medical cases medicinal coke and meth arent needed.both of them have a risk even in perfectly healthy people of causing heart attack through irregular and rapid heart beat.


    weed increases heart beat but only to the levels of someone who jogged for 20 feet.to date there have been no cases of marijuana causing death.there were some causing heart attack and death,but in people who would have a heart attack from getting up too fast or even running weed cant be blamed for it,if it wasn weed it would have been two weeks later when they saw an almost naked chick on tv and their heart raced.

    My daughter is 15 months old. We chase her around and play with her quite a bit. She eats nothing but carrots, asparagus, peas, chicken, and fresh fruit. If we buy fruit cups its packed in fruit juice with no syrup. Nothing but juice besides milk and water as well. We don't buy canned food. Every so often she will have a french fry or chicken nugget, a little taste of candy like Swedish fish. I think we do much better than a lot of parents we know.

    I don't see where it helps either.

    your lucky most kids wont eat healthy,but maybe because fruits and vegetables in alot of states suck.when i was in cali i wouldnt eat any fruit unless it came from a farmers market.the states apples oranges vegetables etc were so flavorless that no one can stand em,when i went to basic training in fort jackson i got to eat fruits and veggies that were naturally ripened and not forced into ripeness,and omfg those aples were amazing,eating a real granny smith apple was like eating sour apple candy it was so sour and sweet.


    maybe if we sold real fruit not something mass produced and force ripened kids would eat it,i know i would have eaten vegies everyday if i had know how good they tasted from a farmers market when i was a young adult.

    Well, little kids often go through food "stages." One week it may be the hotdog; the next it may be the bun. Although I don't necessarily approve of this, V-8 runs commercials all the time for their fruit drinks with "hidden" veggies. There are ways to compensate for nutritional deficits...vitamins, for example. Nerves of steel too. I've seen kids who "wouldn't" eat "anything" except bowls of mashed potatoes. There are ways to solve this problem too.
