Lee's fighting -- and now there in 485 more states now -- towns and cities from banning trans fats and requiring nutritional labels on menus.
That's good news to this guy doctor -- -- owns the heart attack early doctor inference is that we'll seasons there.
He's -- a big quadruple bypass -- in the flat liner.
-- -- -- good to have you.
It's excellent to be here -- -- -- and I have to say that I absolutely applaud the state governments.
By standing up to the tyranny of individual municipalities.
Who -- trying to enforce their vision of righteousness.
On businesses throughout the state.
It's a tragedy.
And -- and thrilled that people actually begun to stand up take notice.
This is positive news the fact that the states who will step again.
Blows me -- Well not -- -- -- but you're quite right enough now to say.
But when when various towns and municipalities -- cities required things like commend you counts in the dying error.
And that sort of -- how ridiculous that daddy you got to be over -- for a lot of these little guys -- got to be an expensive burden.
As if people wouldn't know when they have one of your burgers Alyssa says they are that -- loaded with talisman -- -- folks look if you don't know that.
Got about the launch -- settlement.
-- the fact of the matter is we label our front door and our menus saying that our food is hazardous to your health.
But no government agency force me to do that we decided to do that on our own.
And I stand behind my fellow restaurant tourists for their right of choice whether they choose to label -- recruited as dangerous or whether they don't.
In fact when we opened in Dallas Texas -- protest -- was so extreme it actually closed this down after the first hour.
But I like to say that we've -- yeah.

Bad for sells you guys have had a funny way of showing it -- on fire.
On that though that the heart attack burgers or -- like crazy.
So in a way it just brings more attention it's it doesn't.
Not in the least -- I stand behind anyone's right to debate either side of this issue because think about it this way.
Prohibition did not help to curb alcohol.
If the government thinks -- gonna step in.
And dictate to people how many calories.

You know but it didn't but it's not but I don't -- real good -- was -- -- and so that's of the quadrupled Bergen was a has anyone actually had a heart attack -- died in any one of -- shops.
We have today at terrible tragedy several months ago are spokes model passed away but no no one is Buddy Guy or I'm -- from eating the full -- up not from our food now.
And the thing is this if a person does want to commit caloric suicide.
Is it not his right to or her right -- I don't push my food down anyone's throat and I doubt other restaurant tourist do either -- -- folks we've got a lot had to -- responsible.
It was pneumonia it was quite publicized and there was a lot of cynicism involved with that.
