You could, but people know money is a good motivator/demotivate. Again, I am not saying I support this. I am telling you why they are doing it.

Oh, I get why they are doing it, I'm just telling you why this stuff only works in theory, but not in real life.

The amount of unhealthy food people buy, have in no way decreased since the taxes were permitted, but the amount of healthy stuff, like fruit and vegetables, have, which of course means, instead of buying healthy food and less junk, it's the other way around.

I don't know if it does or not.

Do you have the statistics to back up that assertion? If so, I would like to see them.

Why not barbeque some pork ribs and teach the muslim kids respect for other cultures?

Sure, why not ban shrimp too?

Yeah no, limiting what others can do just for another group isn't cool. Have more than one lunch choice. >>

It's cheaper for me to get something from a vending machine than to get healthy food. (Like a 4-5 dollars difference)
Money is the biggest motivator of all.

Then clearly the tax has no impact on your lifestyle or your location.

I think the ban is a little outrageous in not allowing home lunches that include pork. Other than that, I don't mind it one bit.

"Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it."
