'They're coming after your doughnuts,' warns Rand Paul
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/12/13 | Charlie Spiering

"They're coming after your doughnuts!" the Kentucky Republican said, referring to the Food and Drug Administration decision to ban trans fats.

Paul added that if the FDA was banning trans fats, the employees of the agency should be forced to get healthy themselves.

"I say we should line every one of them up. I want to see how skinny or how fat the FDA agents are that are making the rules on this," Paul said.

I could go with this if they would just go back to lard.

True dat.

I fear this will be a first step to eventual outlawing (or just taxing into oblivion!) all fats.

Lard based donuts were the best! I still remember Krispy Kreme donuts from the 1970’s. They don’t even taste the same now.

Hope someone is keeping track of all this BS so when we get 2016 the first thing the Republican president should do is by executive order reverse all this shi!

The best donuts I ever had was when I was a kid, it was called Ted’s Dutch-Made Donuts on 6th street in Irving TX

When he retired, the donut world just crumbled.

There will be an exemption for police. They will be allowed to have full fat donuts.

Amen to that. They can start with taking the screw out of those stupid lightbulbs if they want to undo something.

I've got to watch my blood lipids and triglycerides as I have cardio-vascular problems. Haven't had a donut in, what, 15 years or so. Every now and then, I get a huge craving for one of those long john's with chocolate icing on the top and vanilla creme in the middle. The nearby Stan the DonutMan makes a long john with vanilla frosting on the inside. Memorable.

I'm sure beating heroin is tough but that long john must be up there. I swear, sometimes I hear it calling my name...

Hormel puts out a lard product, I think. I’ve never used it preferring my transy Crisco.

Spudnuts...growing up kids would sell these on Saturday mornings, from their bicycles, door to door. 25¢ per waxed paper bag...still warm. Nothing better to watch cartoons by. Mom and Dad would leave the quarter on the entry table, before going to bed Friday night...so we wouldn’t wake them Saturday morning.

Lard is unhealthy, but it still makes the best baked goods.

A local Italian bakery used lard in its bread for years. The loaves were huge, light and airy. Today the bakery uses some kind of healthy fat. Now the loaves are smaller, denser and just don’t taste right.

Leave it to government to ruin a good thing.

They will outlaw doughnuts with the wrong amount of the wrong kind of fats for regular folks, but law enforcement will still get access to the high capacity doughnuts.

Beef fat-fried French fries from Mickey D’s in the 70s! To die for! Now, not so much.
