Legislation for "Fast Foods"

I believe vendors should be required to serve and price foods prepared for immediate consumption by the serving and they should not be allowed to package items by more than double a single serving unless they are identified as "Group Size".

If an 8 oz. drink is considered one serving. Vendors must serve 8 oz drinks. If a vendor charges $.50 for an 8 oz drink then they must charge $1 for 16 oz. No more super size for pennies more. No more 32 oz drinks.

3 oz. of meat is a serving. A 16 oz steak must be identified as "Group Size".

Fair Trade, NOT Free Trade!

Thanks for your clarity!

Confusion within all the BIG ISSUES

Scary our tendency to just look at the "surface" and get caught up in "petty" arguments. This tendency alone is where we fail to produce real change, because the masses get all stirred up and emotional and confused. CRAZY. What the heck EVER happened to common sence??

Mfg vs Svc economy

It doesn't matter if the USA is increasingly a service economy. From labor's perspective, all that matters is that what little labor that has yet to be taken over by robots and computers is equitably shared by all who would prefer participation in the economy to degrading handouts or charity. Full participation is what counts, not the kind of labor. -KE

What if...?

What if after all is said and done, the majority of the American people really are as they seem to be as represented by the Republicans. What if we liberals are in fact only pretending that we represent the voting majority, and the ideals we have loved, lived and fought for have in fact died in this country.

Supreme Court

8 to 1 to defend the free speech right of a sick F#@& to sell videos of people killing and maiming small animals? Will someone PLEASE tell me what I can do about this RIDICULOUS ruling? If we don't speak for the animals who will?

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
