that's the saltiest thing I've ever tasted! And I once ate a big heaping bowl of salt!"

It's nice to know after years of public indoctrination that in fact salt is not bad for you, and there was never any actual evidence that salt was bad for anybody. But since some time in the 20th century the government decided it was their job to start telling people how to live and had to come up with stuff for people not to eat salt made the list. Similarly despite a complete lack of evidence (in fact despite evidence to the contrary) the government decided that fat was bad for people and commissioned all manner of studies to prove that fat was bad for people only to continually fail to prove that there is anything wrong with fat. Meanwhile they managed to jump of the carb bandwagon only now to have us find out that all those carbs are what made america so very fat. Carbs were good because they were cheap and full of calories. Only it turns out that they make people fat because they are cheap and full of calories. Well done government. I can't wait to see what plan you come up with next.

I bet Rick Perry won't limit anybody's salt.

Maybe. power corrupts, so they say. It's yet to be seen if a repblican takes over will he actually reduce the government, or just stand pat and pretend he's doing something, like so many other politicians.

I firmly believe Ron Paul would, and probably Bachmann and Perry. Maybe Huntsman, but he's been without headlines for so long I don't even know if he's still in this thing.
