I had planned to stay away from other topics this month and stick to love.
Leave it to a bunch of asswipe researchers and lawmakers to screw that UP.
This is my evening rant for February 1, 2012…and boy am I pissed!
Sugar should be considered a toxin and regulated like tobacco and alcohol…AND TAXED! This according to researchers in California.
One key word: TAXED.
This is just another way to steal from the people who keep this country going.
Moderation is the key to just about every thing, (strychnine being one thing that is not included) but using the reckless behavior of over eaters and over sugarers to garner more cash for 536 people in Washington to waste is not the answer.
If sugar is a toxin, you just might have to buy your Coca Colas at the liquor store, and they will cost more.
You can’t bake correctly without sugar…oh, yes, I know there are sugar free diets and cook books for cakes, candies, and such…but they all taste like crap.
Wake UP people. This is not about health. This is about stealing more of your money for worthless, egotistical, holier than thou politicians to spend on programs that will continue to get them elected.
The second key word: TOTALITARIANISM.
These are people who think they know what’s better for YOUR life than you do, and want to control YOUR behavior by pricing things THEY don’t like off the market.
Well, they can all kiss my sweet ass!
Here is one article: http://news.yahoo.com/sugar-regulated-toxin-researchers-180605186.html
Here is another one: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-16822533
The second article compares sugar banning and taxing to condoms, smoke free restaurants, and designated drivers.
Frankly, I think they are all suffering from low blood-sugar, and need a freakin’ mint!
