“I want candy”

nope i’m not a Nick Carter fan.

we can’t afford vegetables anymore, buying raspberries will cost you a fortune, people bicycle and walk to avoid spending their wages on gas, everybody noticed that lately it’s not “la vie en rose”. Thank God we can still offer ourselves a break from all this stress and get some candies while chatting with our friends, get popcorn to a movie or a fresh coke after a very hot day. Well, they wanna take that away from us. In order to reduce obesity ! some scientists are thinking it would be a good idea to tax the “fat” food. the one we like, let’s face it.  so now not only you’re “poor” but you can’t afford the 5 second of “happiness” of smelling a chocolate bar before eating eat, of choosing candies at the bakery… UNFAIR.

On ne peut plus se payer de fruits ou légumes, les framboises coutent les yeux de la tête, les gens pédales ou marchent plutôt que de dépenser leurs salaires en essence, bref c’est pas le pied en ce moment; Heureusement on a encore la possibilité de se payer de temps en temps pour décompresser, quelque bonbons entre copines, du popcorn devant un bon film ou un coca frais aprés une journée d’été. Et bien ils veulent nous enlever ça aussi ! Certains scientifiques, ou politiques, songent à taxer les produits gras (donc ceux qu’on aime) pour lutter contre l’obésité! Donc non seulement on est “pauvre” mais on ne peut même plus se payer les 5 sec de pur bonheur quand on respire l’odeur de la barre de chocolat que l’on va manger, ou lorsque l’on choisi soigneusement ses bonbons à la boulangerie !!  c’est po juste !

  1. I heard about this idea of taxing fat- and sugar-rich foods and I thought, “HOW COMPLETELY MORONIC!”

    I agree with you- sometimes all it takes is a little chunk of chocolate to set the world aright. Why is it MY responsibility to pay a penalty for other people’s consistent poor choices?

    If western nations want to reduce obesity, I think we should quit acting like being hugely fat is okay.

    Check out this guy’s blog- he doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to obesity issues.
