Why do you hide the fact that you are an atheist?
You claim to be an agnostic but you are not as is evident in your posts you are a die hard atheist, and a perfect example of the bad atheist.
I have stated what I am and you can not accept it because it doesn't fit your little anti-religion and in particular anti- christian agenda.
You are a sorry little man.
Now as I said earlier you someohow stroke your ego with your post so go ahead. You contribute nothing to society and cultivate animosity and confrontation. Your problem is that you think you are smart when in actuality you are sadly just delusional.
The fact that you still take in air is an insult to all higher functioning beings.

That's just for groceries. I just ordered a second pair of glasses from an internet wholesaler. I order my medical supplies ... online, sometimes I pick those up at location though. Online shopping is the largest marketplace now, and "parking lots are full" doesn't change that fact.

As for breaking the law, no, I said there are ways around the law and they have found one around that law, a law that hurts employees not businesses. Most people, working people, are a single paycheck away from homelessness, they get sick and miss one week of work they're out of a home. Penalizing them for this fact is wrong, and you are supporting a tyranny that does just that. So anyone who can find a legal loophole to help the employee is a good company, end of story.

But, hotdogs are not unhealthy.
And please don't take this the wrong way, but from what I've read of some of your posts regarding food and nutrition, you seem to be lacking in quite a bit of knowledge.

Eating actual MEALS (Tyson frozen DINNERS) as "in between meal SNACKS"??

Not at all healthy and it sounds like you may be subject to overeating.

I've spent many years studying nutrition and what does or does not make up a proper diet and proper caloric intake.

If you think you are only eating a snack by eating a complete frozen dinner between meals, you're wrong.

A snack would be a piece of fruit, some cheese and crackers, even a candy bar- but a full meal intended to be eaten as such can't logically be called a "snack".

Our bodies don't actually digest most grains, something a lot of foodies forget when they say that whole grain is beneficial. ;)
I take your word for it as I have also discovered the same things you have on the matter, so I have no reason to doubt it. Grain is a filler, it's to make you feel more full than you are so that you don't eat too much, basically. it can also add some consistency to the bile, if your body has the proper balance of bacteria. But after major digestive surgery, I had complications so mine was just that, or even from long term use of antibiotics, your digestive system become imbalanced and it can take decades to restore that balance. But there are also other ways the body can accomplish what grains do, one is to consume starch in place of grain.
No.....what our bodies don't actually digest and certainly not efficiently is animal flesh.

And no....grain is NOT a filler despite that it is sometimes USED as such.

And starches are NOT healthy for those with high blood sugar or full blown diabetes or for those trying to lose weight- not to mention that bread is a STARCH.

I won't eat anything from Tyson. What they do to their chickens is beyond cruel. I only use local farmers that are more descent (or for OCB, descenter) to their animals. I loooove chicken, but won't buy Tyson.
I was talking about shit like Lean Cuisine. That's some of the worst "food" you can buy.
I agree, reudce cholesterol as much as you can, but take in what fats your body needs.
See a fat person, you know they're taking in way to much fat.
Most local farmers have to use the older and less humane methods, actually. Not to mention they aren't regulated as much and thus don't even have to tell how they do things. We have to kill things to eat, the debate of which method of killing is more humane is pretty silly, since it's all still killing.

As for your final point, not really. Most fat people are that way because they don't get as much activity as their bodies need, a side effect of living in the modern age. What angers me though is that many ailments are being stereotype as "fat" or "not fat" illnesses, and fat people get most of the illnesses so us skinny people are often not diagnosed until it almost kills us as a result. The reality of the situation is much simpler than what doctors even want to face, some people are just fat. That's it, everything else is stereotype or urban myth.

Okay- I don't like Walmart- period.

I find most of their merchandise to be shoddy and poorly made and their produce department to be sorely lacking and filled with substandard produce.

And sorry- but "getting AROUND the law" is really no different from BREAKING the law- it's just a different way of saying it is all.

And despite how much on-line shopping at Walmart might take place, their parking lots ARE always full and quite often to capacity.

NOW end of story.

Not to mention the sites you provided were about on-line GROCERY shopping- LOL!!

Walmart selling groceries is an ADD-ON and is not the area in which they make the most of their profit or sell the most of their goods.

And sure- it's easy to find people desperate enough to work for $7/hour!

Disney does it all the time- but they pay a whopping $7.50/hour- LOL!!

No, local farmers do NOT. FACTORY farmers DO.

No- the method in which killing is done is NOT a silly argument at all.

Would you rather be tortured to death or die in your sleep or even be killed in your sleep?

Anyway, your first statement was totally wrong.

You should read up on factory farming. It's an abomination and is one of the reasons I keep my animal flesh consumption to quite the minimum and I am considering going back to a 100% vegetarian diet which I was on for over 12 years and felt great and didn't miss eating animal flesh.

I only backslided because I got LAZY.

Also, obesity among children AND adults is at epidemic proportion in the USA and sorry, Kitten, but being overweight or obese leads to MANY illnesses and diseases that don't afflict those who are HWP.

The only people who are "just fat" and through no fault of their own are those with glandular issues, and those cases are the exception as to the obesity epidemic that is now plaguing this country.

<quoted text>Been there, done that, but I guess you haven't.......Okay- I'll amend that to say that pizza isn't as UNhealthy as are hot dogs.
And I do NOT eat chain pizza- no Pizza Hut, no Dominoes, no Papa John's, etc.
I eat pizza from actual mom and pop pizza parlors.
And here is what also makes up a pizza:
Vitamins
The tomato sauce on pizza contains vitamins A, C, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folate, choline, lycopene and lutein.
The vitamins in the whole milk mozzarella cheese on pizza include vitamins A, B12, D, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, choline and retinol. The saturated fat in whole milk mozzarella cheese is 14.73 g per cup and the cholesterol is 88 mg per cup.
The vitamins in pizza dough made with all-purpose, enriched and unbleached white flour include vitamins A, B6, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, folic acid, lutein and zeaxanthin.
Minerals and Amino Acids
Tomato sauce contains 18 amino acids and the minerals it contains include calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.
Mozzarella cheese is high in calcium and it contains iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.
The minerals in the dough include calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium. Pizza dough contains some saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and 18 amino acids.
And according to the USDA:
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, pizza is one of America's favorite foods and eating cheese is a good way of getting calcium and protein. The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases puts pizza on its list of calcium sources. The USDA also states studies have shown that the consumption of tomatoes may lessen your chance of getting cancer because tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene. A prostate cancer study showed a drop in prostate cancer risk when the amount of lycopene in the blood was elevated. Studies have also shown that when you eat tomatoes, you may be able to lessen your risk of developing heart disease, colorectal cancer, stomach cancer and lung cancer.

Thanks, but I'll continue to indulge with a bit more frequency than I indulge in pizza and another reason I will is because I'm not eating any animal flesh when I eat pizza.
What if there's a mom n pop fingernail in it?
