Actually, Richard Nixon was one the best Republican/Democrat president we had, by that I mean
he was able to do something with both sides of the political spectrum. Opening up to China,
his environmental policies, and he was seeking a way out of a war that was tearing our country apart.
I am a liberal…getting moderate, …independent, and lived under Nixon. Everybody back then was
struggling for answers. Nixon had his flaws, which made him falter and lose the presidency. I had my
flaws, which made me lose my way for a couple years.
Now to the topic of trans fats…they are bad, but how bad are they in moderation. I see all these products
advertised as having no-trans fats. Marketing is on board for a public concern.
Can anyone speak to the science of trans fats, rather than government intrusions of rights?
I ask this as a smoker who has accepted the risks, taxes, and shame of being a smoker.
Trans fat lovers, accept your fate.
