    No Trans-fats

    when i go on vacation to other underdeveloped countries, i am amazed at how much freedom they have that we don't....especially with things like smoking and drinking and foods

    Agreed. Freedom in this country is a sham. You're free to do with elitist, PC knuckleheads tell you you're free to do.

    It's just a convenient buzzword used as a facade by BOTH parties to enforce their holier than thou crap on us.

    The really sad part is, a LOT of people actually believe one party or the other. Some are members of this board.:lol:

    You can smoke anywhere, even in airports i saw people smoking....you have no one making the restaurants cut out transfats, and you don't get carded when you drink or be told to stop drinking...all of those decisions are up to yourself.

    You planning on trying to play a game of semantics here, or what?

    You have to pretty-much stand out on the plains in Kansas to have a smoke anymore, but you have a city bus belching more than two packs daily worth of smoke up your nose and THAT's okay.

    Michelle Obama wants to create legislation (cuz someone voter for HER) about obesity when she needs to get her OWN tush up on the Nordic Track and not be looking at everyone else's.

    IIRC, there are cities in the US that have enacted legislation against trans-fats. When I eat shit I want shit, not a replica that has no taste and it ISN'T the government's business WTF I am doing.
