    Did you see the movie Supersize Me? McDonald's did some revamping after that.

    It doesn't cover interstate commerce. I posted some examples before. FDA is federal as it should be.

    Jessica-Isn't it refreshing that despite the fact that none of htem liked the Constitution, that they all agreed on it and made it work without spending a whole bunch of taxpayer money arguing? And they did it for free. No need to spend millions on campaigns or water bottles for their staff....
    I can't say much for taxpayer money it didn't delve into that but they did a lot of arguing and many delegates refused to sign at all. They didn't agree on it at all. They just agreed to sign and it and never actually went back to change it as originally planned.

    Do you think all federal law is unconstitutional? If not, what would make the FDA different?

    Isn't that what the Bill of Rights, i.e. the first ten amendments, was all about? That's exactly why they included, in the Constitution, a mechanism for changing it. So that they *could* change it.

    The more info the better. Food packaging in stores in required to have calories on it, why shouldn't it at restaurants?

    Maybe another Canadian can back me up, but doesn't McDonald print dietary information on packaging here? Or am I thinking of another fast food place (Wendys?)?

    Yeah I guess I just thought it was interesting that they never went back to change it despite hating what they put out there. I'm saying it may not always be worth putting a bunch of stock in what the forefathers put out because they hated it as well lol.

    I know what amendments are...they did not come from the original set of delegates that wrote up/compromised/signed the first document.

    I just thought it was interesting tidbit. That relying on what our "forefathers" wanted is often not a true statement...because what they wanted isn't necessarily reflected in the original document.

    The first Congress was seated in 3/1789, George Washington was inaugurated 4/1789 these amendments were proposed 12/1789. I think that would count as being proposed by our "forefathers". The constitution wasn't even ratified by all the states until 1/1791, and then these amendments were ratified less than a year later. It might not have been the exact same delegates, but I would guess the list is pretty close.
