the govt is so worried about obesity and childhood obesity, they need to get rid of the whole food stamp program and issue vouchers. the only food you can buy your children with the free food vouchers is produce, fresh chicken beef pork turkey and fish, not breaded processed stuff, and healthy wholesome foods. also, not 800 dollars a month for many families. that should cut back on the obesity problem amongst kids. because food stamp users often buy wegmans hoagies, premade cakes, shrimp lobster crab legs, junk food and soda. if govt would just prohibit that stuff from the free food list, it may be a start. if you complain about your freedom, get off ass and feed your OWN family.

i came across the comment about the price of good for you food. when youre poor and it comes down to five sandwiches off the dollar menu or one spaghetti squash, one watermelon, or one cantelope, id rather have five meals.. thank you.. if i am starving. also.. ramen noodles even tho theyve gone up in price and they are absolutely no good for you, when you cant afford to buy produce and high end fish and chicken to eat healthy, ramen noodles fill the void in your belly. the prices for the good for you food should be lowered so we arent getting fat from the less expensive stuff we buy just to survive.

So I'm guessing a lot of you are disappointed that there has not been any gun fire in town to report lately?

clw1162 - good point about fast food prices vs food that's good for you prices. A few weeks back I saw some nice looking apples at Weis, and they were $3.99/lb. I laughed and moved on. Geez, even onions are approaching $2/lb.

He does make one valid point in his article, availibility to all people to buy healthy foods. We wonder why there is an obesity problem in this country,and yet you can buy a burger at mcdonalds for 99 cents,but the prices of fresh fruits and vegetables have become so inflated that people can't afford to buy them.

And this guy would probably be first in line to sue if he got sick from raw milk..."government didn't do enough to protect me from my ignorance!"

We have people who sue over hot coffee and you want stores to sell raw milk? Nice.....

I'm chuckling over the statement that he drank the milk his girlfriend bought, but then complained about it.

Here's an idea: find an Amish farm or small dairy farm, drive there, and see if they will sell you raw milk.

I like wholesome foods as much as the next person, but I'm a fan of pasteurizing milk to kill bacteria that could make me sick.

Biobabycj is absolutely correct: the first time anyone got sick or even thought they got sick from drinking raw milk from a grocery store, the lawsuits would fly.

Yet another example of the Sun Gazette's "journalism". This is the stupidest thing I have ever read. Why is this considered local news? Why do I care if some clown doesn't like the taste of, as he says, low-nutrient milk? This must be a prank on the newspaper readers by the paper.

I'm not a big fan of "absolutes", but...to-date...I don't think there's anyone who'd EVER accuse you T-Bagger types of losing your tendency for pettiness/sophomoric-opinions.
