    Then, they came for my ribeyes.

    You will admit, will you not, that a lot of people see the issue of control as a major issue when it comes to making healthy or environmentally responsible choices?

    Where do we draw the line on regulating human behavior that might have a deleterious effect on society and the environment?  

    Having credibility when making an argument is the straightest path to persuasion.

      do i talk about regulation? you don't seem to have read what i actually wrote.

      •  It's only a matter of time. (0+ / 0-)

        You have pointed out the "issue".

        Soon, it will be a "problem"

        I can't get a rare burger in SC.   We used to have a "runny egg" law here in NJ.  Everything produces carbon.  I just want to know how far down that "regulate t because it's bad for you" slippery slope we are going to slide, that's all.  

        I don't want to end up being called a "ribeye denier"!

      the things themselves, the line would have a much better chance of drawing itself. If ribeye really costs our health and the environment $400/pound, then you and I will have it once a year and still enjoy it.

      But believe me, I will still have it once a year . . . ;-)
