    No, they are not. Trans fats can cause damage long term if consumed regularly in high enough amounts. They are not guaranteed to do measurable harm, nor are they particularly harmful if not consumed...

    Do you not see the difference between banning poor dietary choices and banning fraud and poisons? There's a big difference between banning Funyuns and banning arsenic.

    The problem is not the steepness of the slope, it's the fact that there is a slope to begin with. The government should not legislate diets. Period. They can recommend diets, at best. And in that...

    I'm not sure what this "cultural programming" is. My views lean libertarian, and libertarian is a minority view in the US. You're also arguing against the person and not the argument itself. Is what...

    You are right, but only if you are looking at the immediate to short term results. Let's suppose that tomorrow every person in the country wanted to eat a paleo diet. Would they? Of course not. They...

    Kimchi, I don't think the anti-regulation crown here, myself including, disagrees with you on the premise that the public largely will eat the garbage put in front of them, and as a consequence will...

    John walks into Austin's finest BBQ joint.
    The place looks bleak and lifeless, almost black and white.
    The patrons are all unusually thin and pale, all wearing skinny jeans.
    As John is walking...

    Not to mention the fact that if we had Kimchi's system of banning bad foods, we would have banned butter and beef in the 60's to protect the public's arteries.

    Almost everyone on this forum avoids eating those things. Is that by "fantasy of choice", or do we get special food rations from the government containing paleo food? Are we just special members of...

    I'm with Mr. A and Jefferson. The government has no business banning things we voluntarily consume. Trans fat is garbage that no one should eat. Leave it at that. Free society encompasses the freedom...

    Yeah, I guess I should have mentioned terrain. I live in a very flat area, so this rarely applies to me :o

    A couple money saving ideas:

    - Use cruise control as much as possible. Your car can control a constant speed much better than your foot. The less volatile your speed is, the less gas you have to...

    Thanks, hopefully the thread has been of some use.

    I honestly don't know much about HSAs because I've always had low/no deductible insurance. It might be a topic worth covering, but I don't have...

    I think the latter one is very useful (the general idea, I have not used that specific app). If you can make someone understand the power of compound interest, that's half the battle right there.

    That was my point. You should be able to open carry, but you shouldn't open carry.

    That's good and bad at the same time. I'm all for gun rights, but the problem with people who open carry is that many of them do it for political reasons. Kind of a, here are my 2nd amendment rights,...

    Be careful with that part. The decision should be 100% yours. You don't want to get "convinced" into having a completely different lifestyle for a few decades.

    The interesting thing is that the decision not to have kids is usually questioned, and yet the decision to have them is not. Which is more important and thus requires more careful consideration?

    I saw it as well and honestly thought it would be better, especially considering the high reviews.

    My reaction was "alright well some people got killed, the visuals were kinda cool, the end".

    I'm assuming you want a hedge against inflation because you have capital you want in a safe place that won't depreciate over time. Before investing in shiny things, consider this 5 year performance...
