You couldn't rest without trying to get an insult in? Don't worry I have thicker skin than that. I am only engaging you here because it is humorous. You have an axe to grind and I think a few other posters already know that.
I believe everyone needs to take responsiblity for their own actions. I drank a toxic substance and I got damaged by it. I didn't understand how toxic it was and how addicitve it was. My fault. I should have educated myself on the dangers of coca cola. How I could do that when I was 2 years old, well, you were reading scientific literature at 2 years old, weren't you? My bad!
I was never an overeater, I merely ate too much of the wrong stuff and not enough of the right stuff. Of course, you think it's alright for the government to enact laws that make a twinkie cheaper than a carrot or a pound of beef cheaper than a pound of tomatoes. Or a bottle of coke cheaper than a bottle of water. I'm against that as much as I am government telling people that they can't consume something. That's right, I am a libertarian and I am certain that you can't get your head around that.
You can't because you are a Republicrat who thinks that the government should support corporations and screw the people over. Inventing little control mechanisms(banning coke cups of more than 16 ounces) to go along with their other initiatives(subsidizing coca cola production). They create problems with their laws and then attempt to show people they are doing something about the problem by passing laws to restrict personal rights. It's just not about Coca Cola but a lot of other things.
You still havent been able to address at all my statement that Coca Cola has a right to advertise how good their products are as much as I have a right to say that there products are junk and deadly.
You seem perfectly happy with protecting corporate rights at the expensive of personal rights. You are using thinly veiled insults against me in order to try to prove your point. Go ahead, this is not like other boards and most users can see through your BS.
Famous Ghandi quote: "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win." (or something like that)
I think they're somewhere between step 2 and 3. But Ripp already won.
