Hi Hanawaiman,

Great post. And we look to our government for healthful advice...

Best regards, EngineerGuy

Who looks to the government for advice? I couldn't get the post because it was not in blue and I didn't feel like trying to type it in.

Hi Dolores,

You can copy the link, and paste it into the address line.

OR, click on the BLUE LOL

Best regard, EngineerGuy

Copy, paste? I am guessing you are not talking about a xerox machine and a bottle of Elmer's.

The article reminded me of a program the government had (possibly in the eighties, I can't remember) in which they periodically gave away butter and cheese to senior citizens-- for free of course. The cheese was in the form of those long rectangular things you see in the deli when the guy slices off the amount of cheese you want. The butter consisted of several big packages of I don't know how many pounds. They gave it away per person, not per family, so mom and dad each got their own butter and cheese. Can you think of anything worse to give anyone, much less the elderly?

My dad and mom who hardly used cheese and butter at all, stood in the long line to get their cheese and butter because by golly, the government had taken so much of their money in the form of taxes over so many years and used it to give to other people who didn't work for a living that now they were going to get some of their money back in the form of butter and cheese.. They were delighted to give it to my brother and me for our families. They finally got one over on the government. And we all innocently headed down the path of cardiac disease.
