You know seems everyone wants to be like Mike.
At least a lot of mayors -- taken quite a liking -- -- As in soon outgoing New York mayor Michael Bloomberg News fast food battles are now legendary and carbonated classes.
Clover holdings carbonated arm while far from fizzling it -- A bunch of big city mayors are getting in on the act by proposing strict limits to using food stamps to buy soda and down the road a lot of other stuff but they do not like.
But is that their call to a guy from -- against who says but out slippery slope.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Issue at this.
Isn't so much the food stamp art but telling folks what they can do with the food stamps that's exactly right I think come may be.
Mike and doctor Trevor got in a tussle one point -- -- beat the hell out of and I I really don't know what you.
-- -- his mandate coming and him looking over arching.
Idea of of helping the obesity problem in this country is great.
But the government over recent demanded.
What they can or cannot drink -- what they can and cannot be -- -- This is -- country towards.
And so that's what we should have but here's the argument it I -- not I concur with you up but is there -- look at you mean your.
Military -- and very good care itself used to it turns -- around completely.
-- -- but you're in the personal responsibility.
Not everyone and it's so.
If they can't do it and won't do it and if there racking up our medical cost -- the government has to do that is the argument would use.
Well I think that philosophically when you say.
No or restrict something.
The somebody wants they're gonna find a way to get him away.
I -- -- center of the big gulp soda as they get five.
Yeah I'm always so how did I did the mandate here before in in New York where you can't get -- -- -- ounce sugar drink but -- did 512 ounces.
So it may -- -- we have an actress hit her -- the hell out of me because you know there's always a way around -- I think I think let's go back to the Genesis of the whole thing which is.
Let's do more educational nutrition.
They've done most -- people in our business are doing that now and many restaurants were posting nutritional information.
We're trying to educate yet still.
Let our guest retain what you have to do calorie counts and your menus and all -- right absolutely.
That you have a lot of delicious things you find that so but I.
I am not a rocket scientist but I can figure out that if I'm getting dead.
The double stuffed baked potato it up I'm not eating a salad.
But but what -- do we draw the line between helping people and babysitting people.
Well again I think it's not only part of the education but it's moderation and and what -- them.
-- food stamp recipients aren't getting that so maybe the government is saying look if you're using these food stamps to get bad stuff.
It's gonna make your condition work you're -- worse you're gonna get more dependent on this stuff that that's not helping you that's not helping us that's not help -- anymore.
When you -- well you know again.
It's it's the approach to restrict or to mandate what they can and cannot buy is probably not their right way to go about it as much as maybe breaking it more into an educational.
We're we're -- we're helping these the folks -- food stamps and I get more nutritional.
From from the from the purchases you know it's just that we've gone into a restaurant I mean look.
You can go -- any restaurant and he is good there has been you wanna be you know some of his common sense which isn't so common and W restaurants that it make it a little too tempting.
And that is our goal manager -- But you know where this goes it's -- I think it's always -- -- -- does Michael Bloomberg and certainly well intentioned billionaire -- if it.
We can't do it so they will do it and and food is just part of the -- Well it is but again -- I think you're at you when you're taking a draconian approach to it.
And taking away the piece that would really help in terms of some education.
It and sound and teaching some moderation this does wonderful work called discipline and it would probably help -- situation more than saying.
I mean even when your kid when your parents said no.
You're gonna find a way to go get it.
Because that's the that's the precious prize and so so I just think the best way to -- solve this is to come in today and against have money crystal -- -- pattern here.
Enjoy all of us understand which I can't stand it's like -- -- -- what it is you sweetie not -- it.
On -- but -- loves you it does it certainly not.
Switch gears a little bit and get your thoughts on all these students going on in Washington right now and not much discussion on the part of the administration that each and roll so it leaves people wondering like that who's run in the -- But it -- another great question I mean who is running so.
I just see.
-- to see more more.
In the back to the the discipline.
And again in terms of the information.
The the flip flopping that the changes the schizophrenic nature of the information -- what's the truth.
And and again I think that there is this.
This is basic trust and we wanna have a citizens of this country to get but it does -- recipes personal liberties talk about -- mean they're being taken away -- what we are.
What we're being spied on then absolutely absolutely it's always good seeing you Paul thank you very very much.
You're -- good seeing you please come out to our -- against.
In the -- -- -- -- book bleeding green which is a nice thing oblique.
But thank you this is something the government has not been doing -- a -- very good all proceeds go to our veterans.
And we and we are within a brand and the coalition to salute America's heroes where.
We are doing wall of heroes in the restaurants and again -- money goes to helping these.
Brave men and women back into the mainstream there's some good for you because you've never forgotten and that's for sure when we come back attach.
