    It goes without saying that we were talking about inalienable rights only.

    No, it doesn't go without saying. What a silly assumption. If you don't add the limiting qualifier, the question about rights becomes all-inclusive. It's kind of an important qualifier if that is what you intend to ask. Failing to add it changes the meaning of the sentence.

    I would never have said that having an abortion is a woman's inalienable right.

    Absurd. Fed Gov't just loves intervening in the public's life, don't they?

    What's next? Are they going to prohibit sugar because it has a proclivity to make kids hyper?

    Seems the guv't doesn't remember what happened the last time they prohibited a substance (not including the massive WODs failure).

    Salteasies and saltleggers will be all the rage.

    It would be nice if they stopped subsidizing corn. Corn starch is way worse than sugar and is a huge reason so many people are so fat in this country.

    I don't think the idea is to make salt illegal.

    I know, but in essence, they're prohibiting high-salt content, which tastes better to a good portion of the pop.

    People are free to grab the little salt packets that are in every fast food joint and make use of them.

    Most people own salt-shakers.

    It's easy to add salt if you want it. It's pretty hard to remove salt from food if you don't want it.
