  • More tax dollars hard at work....

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...rackasno1killer

    On Tuesday, the government announced two ways it intends to help: by running public service ads on the importance of controlling weight and by paying for new obesity research.
    How much money will it cost the taxpayers for the governent to conclude that you become obese by consuming more calories than you burn?

    Unbelievable. Exactly why our tax dollars should stay in Missouri. Washington doesn't do a good job deciding where money really needs to be spent.
    Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

    I don't think this is all that horrible, depending on how much they plan to spend. If they can find better ways for Americans to live healthy, then it'd be worth it.

        Why is it the government's job to find ways for people to live healthy?

          Jack,

          If I were obese, I'd be more than happy to.
          “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

          Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

            keeping the money in Missouri.

            well, we could have a public referrendum on what to do with our tax dollars, but the republican legislature would just do the opposite to appease their corporate and special interest masters.
            Are you on the list?

              No, it's definately not the worst, but this stuff keeps adding up. Do we really need the government to tell us to eat healthy? Or, do you want to give the government money so they can use it to tell people to eat healthy?
              Unfortunately, people are idiots.

              Do you think that govt shouldn't have the same type of programs for smoking, drugs, alcohol, cancer, AIDS, etc? It's all about public awareness.
