Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

The Politics of Food

It seems like nothing is out of the reach of politics these days.  Congress is about to vote on a bill that would categorize pizza as a vegetable.  The “logic” to this is that the tomatoes in the sauce is sufficient enough for pizza to be a vegetable.  To the best of my knowledge, this would exclude “White Pizza”, which is composed by a variety of cheeses.  White Pizza would probably be considered to be dairy.

If we were to use logic like this, it would be only a matter of time before Cherry Coke would be considered to be a fruit juice.  Corn Chips, Potato Chips and French Fries will be considered to be vegetables because they come from a vegetable.  After Congress has run out of junk food to categorize as  fruits and vegetables,  they’ll start going further out of bounds.  It will only be a matter a time before they legislate ham as “Kosher for Passover.”

The rule for determining a fruit of vegetable should be something that can be grown and harvested and eaten without adding or altering the food.

Places like Pizza Hut may someday soon be considered a health food store with the fruits and vegetables in a day's diet from Cherry Coke and pizza.

Call Congress and tell your elected official that you will not be fooled.  (Unless you want to be fooled.  To tell you the truth, pizza and Cherry Coke are tastier than Broccoli and prune juice.

  1. If cherry coke is considered a fruit juice, does that mean they’ll finally start selling it in Canada?

    If so, I really don’t think they have a choice, Ahmnodt. It’s all about staying current or keeping up with the Joneses or something.

    • I am trying to stay away from the Joneses. If they want to consider Cherry Coke to be a fruit, it’s their business. Dentists will appreciate the extra business.

  2. I thought tomatoes were a fruit.

    • In the world of biology, tomato is a fruit. In the world of lobbyists and lawyers, it’s a vegetable. In the world of a protestor, it is a projectile.
