But she doesn’t let us drink soda because she herself knows that it is not good for you. Soda is very popular and many people drink it like I said many people know that it is bad for you but they still drink it. But it is not bad if you drink soda once in a while. In conclusion, I think that soda and candy should be banned from schools because it can cause you to get obese. Also because it is a bad habit to be eating candy or drinking soda.
In Daniel Engber’s piece called “Let Them Drink Water!”, he talks about how taxing directly in a per pound overweight fashion isn’t really ideal. People aren’t really going to be too thrilled with paying an extortion fee to the government based on their bodily weight. But the current method of indirect taxing through soda taxes isn’t influencing people to lose weight. “The state-level penalties now in place have turned out to be way too small to make anyone lose weight, and efforts to pass more heavy-handed laws
Obesity is one of the major reasons this argument came about. As Wilson states “it 's easier to simply assign blame to sugary drinks and snacks, rather than tackling the various roots of the problem.”, although sugary drinks and snacks have a lot of fats and sugars that could increase the chances of a student to have obesity, it is not the only cause of obesity. Obesity can also be inherited. If a student has obesity history in their family, then it would be their responsibility and choice to watch what they 're eating and how they maintain a healthy life. Most of the times the less healthy food is the inexpensive one, which also leads to students making the choice of junk food, over
Food stamps are provided to help Americans who struggle with food insecurity. People that are not sure where there next meal is coming from are given help so they can get by in difficult times. Maine's Governor, Paul LePage has lobbied that food stamps should ban the purchasing of candy and sugary drinks. The purpose of food stamps is not violated by this restriction, candy and soda hardly count as a nutritious, filling meal. However this bill was shot down by the Federal Government, LePage's response was to threaten to scrap the food stamp program if these new regulations are not included.
I believe that the the abolition of private prisons would be the best course of action to take. It is completely unconstitutional, from my perspective, to allow enterprises to make a profit off of prisoners, who are, in reality, just people who have made a mistake. It is a given that there are exceptions to this, but as Representative Ellison stated, “Incarceration should be about rehabilitation, not profit.” The fact that nothing has been done due to the clutch these corporations have on legislators is terrifying to me, and taking a stance against them would be sending a message to all wealthy businesses across the U.S., making it clear that the government can not be bought out. In a cost-benefit analysis, as the Justice is Not for Sale Act provides, it is much more fiscally responsible to invest in the rehabilitation of inmates than it is to hire private prisons.
Controversy with Head Start goes all the way back to President Johnson because many believe the government should not be paying for anything for the poor. Many people view it as a hand out and are strongly against government handouts to people. People think that the government spend way to much money on it. Some hava the completely opposite view point and think head start is the best program offered to anyone. Some think the government spending money on a system that allows students to get a chance at higher level learning is worth it because they are investing in the kids who will grow and pay taxes one
He also states that the government should allow the citizens to access their health care funds account to support his conclusion, that, people will be more responsible for their health if someone else isn 't paying for their health problems. However, Balko fails to to provide evidence for to support his claim. Even though the problem of obesity is important, the Shorthorn should not publish "What You Eat Is Your Business" because it poorly argued and not interesting. Radley Balko’s central claim is that the government should not interfere in public health and diet. According to him people have no incentive to maintain their health when public money funds health care.
For the alone fact that it brings more in more revenue and supplies. Just as long as their logo is plastered over everything. It’s about money. So, are there any restrictions on what they allow to be advertised? Well, most schools “reject sponsors with political, religious, alcohol, tobacco, and violent or blatant sexual overtones.” (Chaika) That 's good to hear, but here’s what contracts do allow; “shoe companies, restaurants, hotel chains, and telecommunication companies as well as the contracts with the cola giants.” (Chaika) It seems so minuscule to advertise things like shoes, and school supplies but think about it, you’re teaching your kids to be envious.
Moralizing nutrition is not healthy for people or society, but society does have a responsibility to provide accurate information concerning food. Maxfield believes that, weight, diet and health have no correlation. Meaning that there are more components to health then just what you eat. I agree with maxfield on that because there are so many factors to consider when talking about health. Not only does shaming people out of eating not work, but it also causes long term harm.
Due to the fact that one would rather donate a penny rather than any other coin, or dollar bill, abolishing the penny would induce issues to those raising for charity. “Pennies might be a little bulky, but they add up-moreover, because they are worth so little, people don’t matter donating them”, (Save the Penny-Save the Day!, source 4) Pennies are so easily found, which is why people don’t mind giving any away. “Bottom line: if the United States eliminates the penny, charities will suffer because people will pay more at the store and feel they have less to give those in need”, (Save the Penny-Save the Day!, source 4). In conclusion, the penny should be preserved for the three reasons stated in this essay. The penny, despite being deemed futile, has an important part in what formed the United States’ economy.
