Wait wait wait...
Sanny Franny gives out free clean syringes now? I thought that was only in Amsterdam? I'm confused how this is allowed by the DEA, though it's a
swell gesture from those who are open-minded enough to care about drug addicts. I wish I had known about this when I was a heroin addict. At the same
time, I'm glad I never heard of this until now.
AS to the Happy Meals, I'm not so sure how putting regulations on the distribution of toys will effect childrens' diets. They want to include fresh
veggies and fruits into the happy meals, but those fresh foods are becoming just as poisonous, and less tasty. I think they ought to reduce the sizes
of the meals to meet the required levels of calories that the average child burns in a day if they want to effectively reduce obesity in the children.
On average, that required level has decreased because of the sedentary lifestyle of America, as we all know. In that regard, even introducing
"fresh" veggies and fruits may not help reverse the destructive diets of children as much as is generally accepted. Too much of anything is never
good. That includes even vegetables, at least according to yogic dietary philosophy. The idea of ridding toys from happy meals is to reduce its
glitter and shine to a child. Well, if I owned a McDonald's that was victim of such a regulation, I would simply sell the toy on the side, and be
sure that the cashier mentions the available toy for 99 cents whenever a person chooses to order a happy meal...
I mean, come on. Our thinking is too superficial. Though it is in the right direction, the steps are too small, and it is making the journey towards
the betterment of society a hassle rather than a blessing
