Fart_Machine: Did anyone bother to point out that this only applies to chain restaurants with more than 20 locations? A lot of small restaurants already do this as a courtesy for their patrons. Obviously this has crushed them.


This is still the worst thing the US has seen since the war of Northern Aggression.

duffblue: Wow people really need the government to tell them how to do everything. I can see how the anti-gun movement got rolling. You guys really don't question anything, do you? How hard is it to just not be a fatass?



You sound racist just like everybody else who opposes a government policy or owns a gun. What right do you have to enjoy a pizza when there are so many out there that cannot. You need fat acceptance training. You are one one of those 1% eaters who care little about he suffering of the obese 99%

Nowadays people would rather be cared for than be free as those burdens that come with freedom, self responsibility, self reliance and using some common sense, are just to heavy to carry.

Obamacare, for those who were really paying attention, was not about providing people with a bunch of "free stuff" but expanding government power. After all if government is funding your healthcare shouldn't they be able to control costs by controlling your lifestyle?

I wonder if they can stiil sell you your pizza if the label printer with nutritional information is offline?

Off course the real objective is to eliminate stuff like pizza as a choice in the first place

Enjoy your Kale citizen

I am a small, family pizza rancher from Texas. How am I supposed to know how many calories are in the feral hogs I shoot and serve? I can barely read or write; how can you force me to work with them Arab numbers? Do I have to change the sign if there are extra bullets in the hog, or can I just put up a sign with the number of calories per bullet? Thanks for driving me out of business with your usurping regulations, n0bama. At least you can't raise my taxes now.

SuburbanCowboy: I feel sorry for anyone who lives in an area where they have to eat Pizza from a chain restaurant.


Hell yeah this.

Entrepreneurs in the food services put a hell of a lot of time in already. The upside can be pretty lucrative, but adding just another few minutes here, another few minutes there on someone working 14 hour days while a chain can count on it's bulk to take care of stuff is anti competitive.

hbk72777: GAT_00: Endive Wombat: Let's say you run a small group of pizza shops throughout the state of California, from north to south...let's say you've got 50 stores. So you get Bob's peperoni and 4 oz is 300 calories and 25mg of salt. Your food vendor or even Bob's is unable to get you Bob's peperoni for the next month for 11 of your stores in San Diego. So your vendor replaces it with Steve's peperoni. Obviously Bob and Steve make extremely similar products, but Steve may add just a little more fat and salt, resulting in 4oz being 310 calories and 30mg of salt. And your stores in Orange County are going to get a mix of Bob's and Steve's for the next two weeks, and a different cheese mix than that of your stores in San Francisco...you see how complicated this can get.

So the solution is to change a few numbers in the Excel spreadsheet I previously mentioned.  Oh no, the world has fallen down.

Yes, every thread being the three currently active threads I have posts in.  Oh no, I have an opinion, the world has fallen down.

The Papa John's website displays nutrition information under each menu item

This is important for people like me who want to know the nutrition quality of white bread dipped in melted margarine mixed with salt.

Dancin_In_Anson: Darth_Lukecash: It's the right to have knowledge of the properties of the food you eat.

It's also your right to not eat where you don't want to.

Let's look at it like this...You and I are trying to decide on where to gab some pie and suds. We can go to the joint up the road as they have some righteous offerings and a solid selection of craft brews but no mention of calories or Dominoes who has the calorie count of their tomato paste covered cardboard boxes and Dr Pepper on their menu.

What choice will you make....besides forcing the small joint via government fiat to go through the added expense of hiring GAT_00 to do their calorie analysis for them?


I like how you keep arguing that small businesses are incompetent and incapable of adapting to changing conditions.  Those small businesses must be really awesome.

I know!

F*cking nanny state libtardos. Why can't they eat whatever calorie-laden chemical bath is put in front of them. Now they want to know what's in it!

Stuck up ivory tower n0bama voters.

ArkAngel: What they're saying is that it's impossible to list the nutritional information for every single possible pizza, as the law requires. And while ingredients may be used in the approximate same amount for all, it's not set, as most are made purely by hand without scoops


The United States put a man on the moon in 1969, but goddamn it, this is just too much.

St_Francis_P: I can see the ruling may need work


Or repeal.

St_Francis_P: I can see that subby sounds fat.


210. Down from a high of 270 (I'm 6'4").  Did it without this rule and still enjoy pizza as well. Go figure.
