While health care is important for all, this new law is sending our nation down the wrong path. The solution is simple and we've known it for thousands of years. Hippocrates stated: "Let food be thy medicine and let thy medicine be food." And more recently, Dr. Michael Roizen said: "It’s much easier to do prevention than treatment."
Until we change our mindset, our culture, and our addiction to all the wrong foods, no doubt, we will be taking the path to an expensive disease care system. This is very sad because the solution is so simple and now it is bogged down in a massive government boondoggle.
I marvel at the ability of my 18-month old grandson (that's not him) to do an amazing squat. Here's the perfect squat ...
I just heard about a proposal to allow advertising on city-owned vehicles. Wow, a match made in heaven. Look at the existing colors ... Pepsi gets to advertise on police cars and Coke on fire engines.
Here's a side benefit: The police can use Pepsi cans as a weapon: Throw 'em at the perpetrator. Not enough water to douse the fire? Extinguish it with a Coke or two.
It's not meant to be a comedy, but it is funny. Welcome to the Standard American Diet.
Which reminds me of something Steve Jobs said to John Sculley (CEO of PepsiCo):
“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugar water to children, or do you want a chance to change the world?”
Unfortunately for Jobs, Sculley took the job at Apple and fired Jobs the following year. Of course, Sculley ran the company into the ground and Jobs came back to save it.
