What are you saying? To quote Bob Dylan, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows". Do you think people are so stupid they can't figure out which foods are high in calorie content and which are not? It is not up to the government to become involved in crap like that. People need to be responsible for themselves. Next thing you know you will want warnings put on candy bar wrappers. "Warning: The Surgeon General has determined that eating too many of these candy products will make you obese." What next? If you really want to deter weight gain, why not a weight tax?

Our House of representative member voted to not put fat calories on food wrapers and menus. This is sending a lesson to our kids. Eat fat foods it is OK. come on. Our representative was seen stuffing his face with a free vote changing Tudors sausage biscuit. I can not believe that it just took a biscuit to buy the vote. Sad. We are the fatest state and our state reps are not helping by taking a stand. Vote them out next time.
