As I lay in bed for the THIRD day, I caught something on Fox News that really irked me. The reporter was talking to the Coca Cola CEO about Soft Drinks being Taxed more because it caused Obesity....EXCUSE ME!???? But last I checked everyone had free agency on what they want to put in their body!! If I want to have a soft drink, I'm entitled right! What happened to making everyone responsible for themselves and what they eat! That's why we are here right? To test our free agency?
When we were at Disneyworld a few weeks ago , the first day we were at Magic Kingdom, I noticed something very scary. This is no exaggeration, I bet 3 out of 4 people were completely overweight. I'm not talking a few pounds...I'm talking WAY overweight. Kids too! It was the first time I've really noticed this epidemic that the media continues to talk about.
Don't get me wrong, I could stand to lose a few pounds,
BUT, people have the free agency to choose what goes into their body and when and how much they exercise. Why should there be extra tax on soda? Silly to me.
I had to get that off my chest.
