That's very easy, how are the individuals registered to vote.....the liberals will believe the Dem and vilify the Republican no matter what the facts are. If they are either both Dem or both Rep, then the liberal simply won't care at all.
As you know, this is the dumb / lol thread also as you know I don’t support much of any gvt regulation.
A kid made very well be forced to eat like this if the parents do, well I guess they could starve but that’s a helluvan decision for a child to have to make.
I think, I didn’t create it, the point is that if the same energy went into nutritional education that goes into trying to confiscate our weapons that the end result would be much more positive.
Apples and oranges and you know it. The benefit:harm ratio differences between french fries and, say, crystal meth are so vast they're dang near infinite.
That said, I could support decriminalization and treatment What we're doing is failing. We can't win the "war on drugs" with interdiction alone. Glenn Frey had it right in Smuggler's Blues.
I almost said this to @ksupoke and deleted it, there is almost no one in this country that doesn't know that eating that junk is bad for you, or that that kid isn't too fat and needs to lose weight. There isn't an obese person in the country that doesn't know that they need to lose weight, or a smoker that doesn't know that they need to quit smoking for that matter, even if they lie and deny it to themselves. It really isn't an educational matter any more, the educational part has been done (though we do have some counter-educational forces at play if you read much social media). The problem is a cultural one, not an educational one. That, and we really have no idea of exactly how we need to effectively treat that kid in the picture now. Calling him a fat-ass certainly doesn't help.
Nah, I don’t. More like oranges and tangelos to me. Being that the vast majority of people would never smoke meth legal or not yet the vast majority willingly eat junk, the benefit:harm ratio is dependent on whether talking about the individual or populations. Either way, it is using modern science and tech to fool or overwhelm our normal pleasure desiring systems. Not exactly the same, but not apples and oranges either.
