Wheel 'O Yum

The Wheel 'O Yum is a program to assist in deciding where to eat. All too often, excess time is spent among groups trying to decide. The Wheel 'O Yum allows people to vote on their favorite restaurants and spin the wheel for a random restaurant.

            Perhaps you should re-read what he said, clearly he states they should not even be on there as choices. They aren't "food" apparently, by his own words. I couldn't care less about fast food, or unhealthy food in general; to each his own, and informing people is a wonderful thing. God don't we all know the entire world could use a schooling. Where'd the political tirade emerge from? So what you're saying is a single quality inherent in a specific polticial group cannot exist in any others? I beg to differ.

            Get off your high horse and learn to read. He's asking you to CHOOSE not to eat fast food and providing documentary evidence to inform your FREE CHOICE. Offtopic, yes, fascist, no. Also get a clue about politics. Fascism and liberalism are diametrically opposite ideologies. Mussolini declared among his objectives to defeat enlightenment liberalism and then-modern socialism, while Hitler was big on fighting communism and labour unions, restoring a Christian nation and family values, and having pride in the nation and its armed forces. There was nothing like the liberal respect for individual freedom and free choice except for in business where both maintained a relatively free market with government favouritism comparable to modern capitalism.

            So, now you're telling us where to eat? The beauty of America is, it's free -- We're free to choose to be health nuts, or avid fast food consumers. We may run 5 miles a day, or walk 5 miles in our entire lifetime. The choice is up to us, and people like yourself who want to force what you feel is "best" for us, is equivalent to facism.

            Hmmmm, and I bet you're a liberal.. Interesting.
