Have We Really Fallen This Far?

A friend on Facebook posted a Slate article that I found hilarious and disturbing all at the same time. Apparently insulting people by saying they eat fruits and vegetables has become the "in" thing to do. To eat fruits and vegetables is "elitist" and "socialist." Really? Are you kidding me? So I guess that makes your mom and grandmother ("Now eat your vegetables or you get no dessert!") an elite socialist. It truly is laughable. But at the same time it's sad that we have become so far removed from real, wholesome food.


  1. Glad you enjoyed it! I was actually more comfortable being called a socialist than an elitist! :-) I love seeing how great you are doing on your project - your guys are an inspiration!

  2. Bob the cucumber a socialist? Noooooo!

    Today I read something from the old testament that caught my eye:
    You have increased the number of your merchants
    till they are more numerous than the stars in the sky,
    but like locusts they strip the land. Nahum 1

    Seems like we haven't changed a whole lot since the days of Nineveh.

  3. The article was really about what the government can and cannot do, more than eating right is socialistic. Government overstepping the Constitution is devastating our Republic.
    That being said, I love your blog, I wish I'd found it sooner :)
