In all seriousness, i'm fairly amused at people being outraged at people trying to combat obesity. Thats the hilarious thing.
I agree with you . The obesity epidemic in this country is a serious issue that everyone is afraid to address. However this bill is silly and it really doesn't address the problem not to mention diet soda which is excluded from this bill is just as bad. If the govt declared a serious war on obesity and stopped giving subsidies to farms that produce all these unhealthy boxed foods and made physical fitness a priority in public schools that would be a better first step in the right direction.
