      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

McD's Contribution to a Heathier You

Recommended Posts

I dunno, I think an insurance premium on obese people is not a bad idea. They charge one for smokers. But that's up to the insurance companies, obviously.

 

Bill, it's because I DO think something must be done. It's out of control. I don't know what to do; I'm not an expert. I'm just discussing it, for fun.

 

But I'm pretty sure I haven't suggested anything really that oppressive. I mean, if you disagree, fine, but I'm pretty sure that my brain-stormed idea of letter grades on the nutritional info doesn't qualify me as on oppressor or whatever.

I mean, many health departments have letter grades to rate the cleanliness of a restaurants. Is that oppressive, too?

all smokers smoke but not all obese folks have a junkfood abuse issue.

Hmm, don't all obese people have SOME kind of food abuse issue? Excepting obesity caused by disease, of course -- which I imagine is the minority.

 

Is it possible to be obese but not have problems with food?

 

I guess maybe you mean people that just don't know better?

it's an indication of their reliability.

 

Is this your excuse?

 

FAIL

 

I don't need any excuses to point out that the same Bush voters who cheered the worst of his policies now claim to be against what they cheered at the time.

That wins no argument.

 

In fact that smacks of ad hominem. Oh noes!

that is a significant minority. I was talking to a nurse today who said a study suggested ~25% of obese had no food abuse problem.

Gotta love the diagram at my gym right by the ellipticals:

 

It explains weight loss in pictures concluding "if calories burned exceed those consumed in a day, you lose weight". Wow, rocket science.

it figures that a know-nothing retard like you would pretend to reduce complex socio-economic processes to a budget equation.

FOAD, Mr. Panties-in-a-wad, pseudo-intellectual, thinly-veiled Marxist, living in a basement, POS. :wave:

Lots of things are simple. Don't want to be homeless? Get a job! Don't want cancer? Don't smoke! Don't want to be fat? Stop eating so much!

 

The solutions are so simple, and yet we still have the homeless, and we still have a growing obesity problem.

 

I've read that cigarette smoking is declining. Perhaps we just need more education, and more cultural stigma on junk food & over-eating, via commercials and media. Maybe we need non-profits to start pushing anti-fat campaigns. It's easier to solve obesity if you don't get fat to begin with?

 

Doing nothing isn't working, though, that's for sure.

 

And, back on topic, McDonald's is basically the same as the big tobacco companies, in my opinion. They're selling a product that is only bad in excess, and they see people doing it in excess, and they don't seem to care. Why? $$$$$$$$$$

Selling shit like their new oatmeal, and marketing it as a "healthy choice," when really it is quite the opposite.

 

It's trickery.

Again, back to McD's. What about Taco Bell, Burger King, Jack in the Box, Denny's, Red Robin, Shari's, Old Country Buffet, Carl's Jr., Round Table, Dominos, Papa Murphy's...

 

Fuck, do the math - all those franchises with all those restaurants. Americans love fast food, and they want it to be omni-present, 24/7, at convenience. We have made a choice, and it has nothing to do with greed, $$, or big-government neglect.

they do that because they are being forced to. That's the kind of fake 'solution' you'll get from legal or gov't pressure.

 

Kind of like Obama-care. :wave:

You against the masses, oh enlightened pinko. Yeah, fight that battle. I'll enjoy watching a 300 lb wildebeast sit on you and squash you like a bug. :wave:

i'm no timid mouse, afraid of the gov at every turn - nor am i a screaming republican fascist dickhead - i'm pro-legalization of drugs like you rob - doesn't seem we're generally so different in our politics - this one issue is an interesting wedge though

 

i do think, as did that one dickhead philosopher, that we do live more or less in the best possible world - it does worry me that THIS is what looks like :)

 

your idea of an A through F grade for foods sold in the usa is not so bad, though i don't see how that's going to be so very different from the current regime

Apparently, the only rights we have left worth defending are those allowing us to binge on drugs, food, and celebrity to relieve the pain of living in the shithole we've created. HOOAH!
