This is my two second rant. It is actually longer than two seconds depending on how fast you read. I could consider it longer than two seconds considering how long it took me to type it, but that is neither here nor there. Anyway, with that said. Here is my rant.
I just read something that struck a chord with me and so I would like to put this out there for thought.
For every soft drink or soft drink size that gets banned, that is less profit for the company. Less profit for the company means less employees that they will need. Less employees needed means the more people looking for work. For every fast food restaurant that is under attack or told that they need to revise their menu to not sale this or not sale that, it potentially means less profit for the company. Less profit for the company means less employees are needed. The less employees needed means the more people out of work. Are we seeing a pattern here?
We all have the option to eat healthy. We all have the option to not eat healthy. We also have the ability to determine how OFTEN we dine on these luxuries. It goes with that free will that they are so trying convince that we still have. People have a right to eat and live (within the law) how they choose. People do not go to McDonald’s for the stellar salads. Yes, it has become a popular option, but seriously…Big Macs and Shakes. It is not McDonald’s fault that they are such a convenience or that people have ultimately become less active and therefore heavier in their lives. This is not on McDonald’s, this on us as individuals.
With that rant aside, my point is, by allowing places and OTHER people (POLITICAL PEOPLE) to dictate what we are allowed to buy and when we are allowed to buy it, we are creating a place where these companies such as McDonald’s, Pepsi, and other soft drink makers are not needed. This in returns creates less job options for people. Less job options for people means less people working and less people that can afford to live. Hmm….seems like a pretty bad frickin’ move, huh?
I’m done. Thank you for your time.
