You are right Kevin, after all its not healthy to be healthy! Our average lifespan has increased by almost 75% in the last 40 years, and people shouldn’t live that long, its simply not American to encourage healthy eating habits!
Its only costing YOU more money in social security and medicare to keep them alive another 30 years, and we wouldn’t want THAT in our society, would we?

Vertigo – I think your numbers are flawed. Yes, they say the average lifespan has increased — but those numbers are based on many things that are not applicable today. For example — 100 years ago, woman died in childbirth [much less so, today], men died in wars [much less so, today] and many many small children died of disease or injury [much much less so, today]. My own GrGr Grandmother was born in 1834 and died in 1925 and there are a host of others that lived well into their 80s. Not sure if she ever saw a doctor, and certainly never had the govenment telling her how to live her life or what to eat.

I am sorry, S.L., that sarcasm doesn’t translate well into written media like blogs. Kevin has a history of supporting anything that the neo con pundits tell him is true, and I was contrasting his weird logic with more weird logic.
I believe, if you want to go further with what you said, certain preventative medicines have been the true cause of a much larger percentages of longer life spans. For example, a diabetic seldom lived past the age of 40, with type I almost never living past 4. Heart disease is another cause of death that is actuarially gone through the roof.
The problem is, Kevin would fight against any kind of preventative medicine, expecially government mandated/ supported preventative medicine, even if it would save his own life.

So they want to encourage ‘healthy’ eating….. Well for starters it’s McDonald’s, not much ‘healthy’ there to begin with. And if I was so worried about my child being overweight, which I’m not, do they really think I’d take my child to McD’s. It’s not like mom and dad take young Johnny and Cindy out to eat at McD’s 5 nights out of the week. I would much rather my 9 year old ask for the McNugget Kids meal with the toy (Kids meals are smaller portions) than ask for a 10 piece nugget, medium fry, and medium drink.
Really it’s not the toy that’s doing the damage, it’s the food, but like most politicians they lack common sense.
