Oreo Cookies to be banned in California

Oreo cookies should be banned from sale to children in California, according to a lawsuit filed by a San Francisco attorney who claims that trans fat -- the stuff that makes the chocolate cookies crisp and their filling creamy -- is so dangerous children shouldn't eat it.

The suit, the first of its kind in the country, asks for an injunction ordering Kraft Foods to desist from selling Nabisco Oreo Cookies to children in California, because the cookies are made with partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, also called trans fat.

State Sen. Debra Bowen, a leader in state nutrition-reform legislation, called Joseph's choice of the California product liability law to go after food makers who use trans fat a unique approach.

"Anything that brings people's attention to how dangerous and unhealthy trans fat can be is probably a good idea..."

------------

I can see it now ... if this suit is successful, there will be a black market for Oreo Cookies.

People will be smuggling trailer-loads of Oreo's into the state.

Pot, booze, smokes, coffee, McDonalds hamburgers, Oreo cookies....... where does the Health Nazi (HN) crusade lead to? ..........

Right through my trailer doorstep and directly into my pocketbook, maybe yours too.

Perhaps twinkies will be next, there's gotta be some really bad stuff in them suckers. Enough preservatives to ward off old age.

Remember that EGGS got a bum wrap. The goodness has been restored to the term "good egg" by devine intervention though. Will fiberglass be the next HN campaign after asbestos?

Is there going to be bumper stickers that say: "
When EGGS are outlawed only outlaws will have EGGS"!

Consenting Sex should be a double felony, not just a mis-de-meaner, because sex makes people (in most places other than San Francisco) and people are the root cause of pollution.


Oh well, so much for the venting rant... I gotta hurry and go to the grocery store to horde some oreos... especially those big fat double stuffed ones.

Eggs

On Eggs
(on reading an article in the newspaper about cholesterol in eggs)

I find myself in a sticky wicket
for eggs to me are just the ticket.
I like them boiled,
I like them fried.
I like the yoke that?s hid inside.
On Easter I like to see them dyed
I like them mixed up in a custard,
or in the den with Colonel Mustard
I like the large ones in a stew;
I like the bite size small ones too.
I love them when they?re Benedict
and make quite sure my plate is licked.
In every way they can?t be beat;
For me an egg is the ultimate treat.

Lep 1995

Eggs Again

On Eggs (Again)
(on reading an article in the newspaper
that says eggs aren't bad after all)


Well...now they say that eggs are good
Deep down inside, I knew they would.
It makes me sick, it makes me mad
to think of the eggs I could have had
Instead of stuff made from soybean shoots
and other tasteless substitutes.
Instead of slimey oatmeal cakes.
Instead of diet breakfast shakes.
Instead of sliced fried cream of wheat,
Mixed with some strange mystery meat
Flakey corn and puffed up rice,
that look like droppings left by mice.
I ate all these things, you see
'Cause they were sposed to be good for me
and now they say that all along
They weren't right; they got it wrong.
Well I'm just glad I lived to see
That eating eggs is good for me.
And I will eat an egg a day
until the day I pass away.

Larry Page 1999

hydrogenated vegetable oil

hydrogenated vegetable oils are bad. The good that might come out of the court action is publicity around it. Perhaps a few parents will think x2 before feeding any food containing hydrogenated vegetable oil to their children and themselves too often.

For fun when you go shopping read the labels and you will be surprised how often hydrogenated vegetable oil shows up. The literature is not kind.

I may have to go get a bumpersticker printed that says"When Oreos are outlawed only outlaws will have Oreos"
I am becoming a little tired of some one deciding they are so very much smarter than me about what I should eat, or drink , or smoke, or do and passing a law to protect poor stupid little me from my own stupidity. Yes tell me what is in it, but then leave me alone with my own intelligence to decide what to do.
I do read the labels, and can make rational decisions, I don't need my own government treating me as if I were incompetent to even decide what to eat.
Sorry about the tirade, I just get fed up with the "Protect those stupider than us" laws and regulations we keep getting and need to blow off a little steam from time to time.

I know Mary, but it helped. I woke up this morning in a much better mood, I don't know if it was the steam, or the pint of CherryGarcia that did it.

Steam

CherryGarcia is so much better for you than those stinking Oreo's anyway. You are making better choices for yourself. As a kid I never liked Oreo's - too fake for me - and now we know why!! :wave

wound up

Personaly I have never felt that the Protect those stupider than us laws have ever broken my stride. I've always been able to make my own decisions regardless.

Here, Here, (have you been talking to my Tom? this is his main gripe. Like protecting the rest of us because someone else was really stupid.)

what an interesting language we have! "Here, here" means "I agree", but "there, there" means "Settle down". Go figure.

Liberty & Safety

Some curmudgeons (could I be one of those?) say that a liberal is someone who thinks he/she knows so much better than they what the rabble ought to be doing with their lives.

Washington, Franklin, Jefferson and those dudes would revolve in their graves at warp speed if they could see us now. They fought to give us liberty, if we could keep it, but they left the issue of safety up to us.

I particularly love the gov-think about airplanes: "We think it's very dangerous to fly with all these terrorists around, so we're going to completely disarm all of you so a guy with a box cutter can be king."
