    Understand, this is not a nitpick or a "gotcha" deal. It's not any kind of major deal. But it's a little irritating to me when we have all these things we really shouldn't be doing, like buying bottled water and sugared soda pop, and being 'green' and we see the leaders not leading by example.

    I present to you dear readers, photos of the President and his cabinet, and ask: If it's good enough for us, why isn't it good enough for them?

    And even more to the point: If they're going to preach this stuff and tax this stuff (they are) shouldn't someone among them with a brain cell say, "You know, let's start here. Let's do away with bottled water and sugared pop. Ya'll can drink out of glasses and get diet soda only. We should be leading by example."

    I personally would take them a little more seriously if the OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE PHOTOS didn't have bottled water and sugared pop cans in them. But, that's just me.

    What say you?

    Hypocrites for sure. Even if they weren't such obvious hypocrites i still wouldn't support their agenda though. This is just more entertainment for me in the end. Thanks.

    I don't know whether to call it hypocrisy or just that they don't really care about their image.

    I think it IS hypocrisy that environmental groups aren't raising a little hell over it though.

    So....

    What other environmentally-conscious folks besides me are up for sending them a letter on this?

    all mommy laws must first be tried out on the politicians who pass them. After a 4-10 year trial period they can revote and then put it to the rest of the nation.

    Actually, I'd just prefer to tell them, sorry, unconstitutional. The federal government has no power to regulate diet, so fuck off and don't buy it.

    As idiotic as putting a punishment tax on it, and taxing sugar too? Then, not leading by example?

    Taxing something doesn't mean that it's evil or that you shouldn't do it.

    As long as they've paid their taxes on it, there's nothing wrong with it.

    When the governement thinks that something is evil they make it illegal.

    Geez, and to think that they allow people llike you to vote...no wonder this country has so many problems.
