Ahhhnold is a disaster. The economy is a train wreck and now these business need to shell out additional expense for a non-value-added "feel good" law. Maybe a socialist "buy out" of the banks is going to help them get a loan for this. Thank goodness there are laws keeping this guy out of the White House.

Quit eating so much food and get off your rears, fat people.

This is ridiculous. People should take responsibility for their own health. If they want the info, it is usually available, they just need to ask. If you can't make the effort to find out, then it's your own choice to eat unhealthy food.
