An Obese society and the "fat" tax

Face it, people in societies are sheep.

These idiots think you can outlaw guns and guns will cease to exist in spite of the evidence to the contrary, evidence like Israel under British occupation, evidence like the war on drugs. Where there is a demand there will be a supply. Period.

Morons think SSI is solvent, what a joke.

The truth is most people are just going to do what is easiest for them to do. If we made the world safer people wouldn't want firearms, even nations wouldn't need firearms. If we stopped treating people like crap there would be fewer addicts and the war on drugs would end because people would not need the escape that drugs and alcohol provide.

I believe we need to start taxing high fat, high carbohydrate foods.

There are studies that show meals with 30% protein, 40% carbs and 30% fat are better for people.

Tax foods with more fat than protein.

Tax foods that are all carbs.

Sure, some foods like butter (all fat) or sugar (all carbs) are going to sell and we have to make a provision for that. Basic foods.

Prepared foods, mixes, etc, crap made and advertised by manufacturers needs to be taxed unless the foods have about the same or more protein than fat and don't have more than 125% of carbs compared to protein.

This way people have an easy time buying decent foods.

Suing food makers for advertising a study you don't like is dumb, and a waste of money.

Passing a law that taxes foods that are bad for people is a much better way to do things, and that tax has to paid by the manufacturers.

Sure, they will pass the cost to the consumer and the consumer will stop buying crap so the manufacturer will start putting out foods that have content that is not taxed.

Simple, but because Congress is owned by these big businesses that are stuffing people full of crap it will never happen.
