OK, I obviously lean conservative even though I was raised Democrat and voted for Jimmy Carter in my first election.(Sorry.) That was before I started working and saw how much money was taken out of my paycheck in taxes. That being said, I believe neither Republicans or Democrats are really running the show(Bilderberg Group). The presidents are just puppets of the bankers.
I sometimes listen to liberal-leaning radio stations to hear the other side but usually have to turn it off because I can not stand their snarky, sanctimonious attitudes. Anyone who would dare have a different opinion than theirs is obviously stupid, or shall I say "progressively unenlightened", or the devil incarnate. This morning the host was talking about the healthcare bill and saying that if it passed, and our taxes would be going to pay for other peoples healthcare. And therefore we would have the right, the host expressed it as more of a duty, to set anyone straight who was about to dive into a Big Mac. To actually say to them, "Hey, how about backin' off from that burger, buddy!" Now I can not remember the last time I ate fast-food. I believe it is unhealthy, and those I work with know this because I am always reading the labels on things and pointing out the trans-fat or the high fructose corn syrup.
HOWEVER...I do not want the government telling me or anyone else what to eat. I'm all for education, so instead of the never-ending commercials on TV for all kinds of drugs, how about Big Brother putting on some commercials that would actually instruct people about nutrition? And I'm NOT talking about the "Got Milk?" propaganda from the dairy industry.
