Lou Dobbs is an Ass - Example #324

Or why I should really get rid of cable:

Embedded video from CNN Video

Follow the bouncing ball of illogic - Parents are fine with it. Kids are fine with it. The meat industry is not fine with it. Apparently, this spells controversy. Offer something one day a week that is both cheaper and healthier and all of a sudden Dobbs smells controversy. Argh.

Of course, the meat industry is just looking out for the kids that don't get enough protein. I guess they never heard of beans and the protein they pack. I don't know how the world ever survived without industry lobby groups to look out for our health.

The meat lady says that she wants parents to have choice, which means according to her, they should have the choice to eat meat that day. By that logic, the lack of say pomegranates or Tang on the menu, means that parent choice has been taken away. Every single food item in the world would have to be included for the parents to have choice.

On the other hand, I despise Peta, and I don't think their endorsement helps any.

I can't stand CNN! I immediately discount anything I hear on that channel. Always creating a tempest in a teapot, they are.
