Comment of the Week
“To expound on my initial comment, I agree with Mark that I am not optimistic about President Biden involving himself in Americans’ diet and nutrition choices. From what I’ve seen, even his most well-meaning efforts to address legitimate issues tend to only exacerbate them.
In my opinion, this should not be within the purview of the federal government, let alone the executive branch; it should be the concern only of the individual household. The federal/state governments can influence their respective corrections and military meal plans… however, Joe Biden (along with Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Joe Rogan, Alexandria Occasio-Cortez, Bill Gates, Robb Wolfe, Mark Sisson, Julia Child, etc.) will never effectively tell me what I can or cannot prepare in my own kitchen.”
-I think we can all agree there, hate_me. Except for Julia Child—I’d listen to her.
