assholes

What is it about some people that makes them terribly unhappy unless they are behaving as complete assholes? Just read this, for a good example.

A consumer group sued the federal government Thursday, saying that salt is killing tens of thousands of Americans and that regulators have done too little to control salt in food.

Despite advisories to take it easy on sodium, Americans are now consuming about 4,000 milligrams a day -- nearly double the recommended limit to keep blood pressure under control, the Center for Science in the Public Interest said.

Assholes. Let's get the federal government involved in regulating SALT, for crying out loud. Why don't you just sue to outlaw boiled peanuts, too, you flaming rectums?

Got-dam! What in the hell makes ANYBODY puffed-up and self-important enough to believe that the amount of salt I consume is ANY of their fucking business? What went wrong in these people's childhoods? What turned them into pucker-butted, goose-stepping nannies, more concerned with running MY life than tending to their own? I think the "Reprobates in 2008" have a much better idea.

"Get outta my yard."

Don't get me started on this. I already posted my thoughts.

Let met guess, without reading the article, it was done by People for Science in the Public Interest.

Yup. First booze. Then drugs. Then cigarettes. Now salt. Don't it just figure. What the hell is gonna be next?
I guess they think we're all too stupid to decide things for ourselves.

I, for one, am sick to death of other people trying to tell ME how I should live MY fucking life.

I heard this story on the radio this morning. The news report contained a clip in which a spokesman for this "consumer group" referred to salt as "the most dangerous substance in our food today."

Asshole, indeed.

Makes me want a pretzle.

Why, I simply cannot believe you aren't congratulating these di*, er, public servants, for alerting us to our own follies and for enlightening us about the dangers multiplying DAILY in your SPICE CABINET!
Yes. You probably thought salt was their focus.

They're really going after marjoram and cumin. I know their tactics. While you're not looking they take all your Greek seasoning and Tony Zachere and leave tofu nuggets rotting on the third shelf.

Trust me.

Oh,people for science in "the public interest"? Fuck 'em, they can eat fish-heads!
I am with Pammy.
What is next?, I am guessing soda pop..
They have already test driven "fast food" ...Give the fucks another year....
Personally, I like salt on my cholesterol filled burger and fries.
They can't yet tax me on my drugs, so far duty free haw haw...Git that gotdamn salt though!
Lots of salt mines in Kansas, Damn Kansas salt pushers! Damn that little bitch with the umbrella!

I was never real big on salting my food, and since I became concerned about my blood pressure I've been actively avoiding the stuff. All by my little old self, without any government interference. If these @#$%^&*s really cared about the public interest, rather than their egos and pockets, they would be educating people instead of pulling this stunt.
