So what does this mean for food manufacturers and restaurants that push value meals, obscene portions and misleading marketing regarding their nutritional value? A higher standard that will eventually gain legal grounds. When it comes to advertising, companies have done everything they can legally get away with in order to draw in customers.
Many legal initiatives are already under way, including a California county that’s looking to ban toys in fast food Happy Meals to decrease the amount of “marketing perks” that could sway a child towards making unhealthy meal decisions..."

Response to comment [from a "Christian"]: "Are you calling Michelle Obama "wide load"?"
"Wide load"..."Big rig"...you pick. Michelle says French fries are her favorite food. She is free to eat them but we are not. Is there any area of our lives that Leftists are not attempting to control?
"Big government makes for a small citizen (Prager)."
Response to comment [from And what's wrong with a wide load anyway?"
What's wrong with food control anyway? Re 13:11-17. When you look at Michelle, do you see a class act or a large derrièred control freak?
Response to comment [from a Christian]: “I see an attractive control freak, derrier and all. Michelle's problem is not in her rear end but what's in her top end.”

Too bad Leftists want their opinions put into policies and regulations. Christians are about freedom to choice (Jn 8:36).
"Jonah Goldberg reminds us
that the original fascists were really on the Left,
and that liberals from Woodrow Wilson to FDR to
Hillary Clinton have advocated policies and
principles remarkably similar to those of Hitler's
National Socialism and Mussolini's Fascism.
Contrary to what most people think, the Nazis were ardent socialists (hence the term "National Socialism"). They believed in free health care and guaranteed jobs. They confiscated inherited wealth and spent vast sums on public education. They purged the church from public policy, promoted a new form of pagan spirituality, and inserted the authority of the state into every nook and cranny of daily life. The Nazis declared war on smoking, supported abortion, euthanasia, and gun control. They loathed the free market, provided generous pensions for the elderly, and maintained a strict racial quota system in their universities--where campus speech codes were all the rage. The Nazis led the world in organic farming and alternative medicine. Hitler was a strict vegetarian, and Himmler was an animal rights activist...
