no more free rides, no food stamps, no more welfare, no more rent subsidies, no more free anything, walk and work will take the pounds off our fat entitlement folks
if they had to choose between drugs, fingernails, hair weaves, 20" tires and rims, or food then we would be getting somewhere but the democrats give all these things to holders people in exchange for their votes and now they want to give amnasty to the illeagls for their votes in the future.

Well, nobody to date has forced me to go into an eating place of any kind against my will. Most purchased restaurant meals could be considered fast food. The food always arrives much faster than the meals I can cook at home. How do they achieve that?
Let's face it, if it is not available within minutes and is not super sized with lots of cheese, the majority of people will not buy it.

In addition, a freshly prepared vegetables dish (as the preferred largest portion on the plate), does require more effort and skill from the cook than just arranging french fries picked up from x- merchant from around the corner. Probably cheaper too!

The suggestion to regulate what we should eat or not is intrusive. Teach nutrition in the classroom and serve healthy meals in school! A child will be very "impressionable" and will carry the message home. Come to think about it, is that not exactly what you wish to achieve?

If Marti Brown wants to set a good example she and her hefty friend Stephanie Gomes should resolve them selves to stay away from those free catered sandwiches in the city council ante room. The both of them are always ducking back there for a snack and coming out chewing like a bunch of cows chewing their cuds.

Lead by example. If you were something worth looking at you wouldn't spend so much time worrying what other people are doing and more time getting your sorry life together.
