Fatty foods don’t cause obesity.

Carbs do.

Remember the Fed’s Food Pyramid that suggested everyone eat lots of pasta?

People did, and got fat.

A moderate amount of fat makes you feel full and tells your body to stop eating. Carbs give you a blood sugar spike, get stored, and make you crave another blood sugar hit.

Stop the madness!

And I bet you thought the Moochelle school lunches were just going to be mandatory for public school kids......

Nope, now that the government has a financial stake in your health (see Obamacare), they are going to do whatever it takes to make sure you take good care of government property (that would be your body) and the Supreme Court has ruled they can essentially penalize you for doing (or even not doing)anything they decide.

Yes,why not? I didn’t see many objections to the obscene cigarette taxes.

“Should the Government Slap Tobacco-Style Regulations on Fatty Foods?

Uh...not just “no”, but “hell, no!”

We need the gubmint to get back inside the Constitution’s very small box and get the hell out of our lives.

***Much of the policy would face a difficult, if not impossible, path to passage in the U.S. Congress,...***

No problemo, kemosabe! The President will just issue another unconstitutional executive order. Or the FDA or some unelected, unaccountable, and faceless alphabet agency will issue their own regulations. Then send in their own SWAT teams to anyone who doesn't comply.

No. Make recommendations if they want but no laws.
Leave the final decision up to the consumer.
Libs have a problem trusting regular folks, except with abortions.

If they want to tax obesity causing foods, start with sugary foods, starchy foods, pretty much all carbs that aren’t fiber, including fruits. Then they can go onto the trans fats that have been pushed onto the American public. Leave saturated fats alone. For that matter, leave everyone alone, and leave their food alone. Government without limits is evil out of control.

Trans fats really are very, very toxic.

Apart from that, bring on the bacon. Bring back beef tallow, coconut oil, and lard.

No.

But I’d like to see them ban all the fat nurses.

The federal government has no business, as those that can’t keep their noses out of their neighbor’s business (like that old bat in a TV commercial), have no business getting into my personal business.

I think the government should suggest to tobacco makers that they introduce fatty foods on tobacco. I think I’d really enjoy a bacon flavored cig or a tamale 100, unfiltered, of course.

This makes as little sense as regulating our beverage choices - it's not the proper role of government in (what used to be) a free society.

They can have my Bacon Double Greaseburger and my Big Gulp when they pry them from my cold dead hands.

Make all fat illegal; violations punishable by death.
