in Mexican Coke.
cornsyrup was subsidized, and eventually a number of research projects made it cheaper to produce and purchase than sugar
@Fusion mexican coke is delicious. Soda in large quantities is bad.
Honestly, real sugar sodas do taste a lot better than sodas with corn syrup.
I can't distinguish specifically what it is about the taste, but it's just better.
@Extra Crispy Corn by products are in a lot of stuff. We grow so much of it.
the only reasons as to why the corporations have more say in gov't than us is because the corporate tax holds less of an influence on corporations than the income tax does on citizens, resulting in more money being available for corporations than citizens
It's like how diet sodas suck - you can't put your finger on why they taste so bad, but they just do
@Fusion I'll take a small batch cream soda with cane sugar any day.
@futurestorms imagine if corporations could put addictive chemicals that would make you want to purchase said soda and consume it in a very alarming rate, regardless of health concerns to you, you think they would not if they could? there motive after all is profit
@Blood well the the government handles the perogatives that the constitution delegates to the government, so it's only the government's responsibility to protect the rights of coporations just as any citizen's rights are protected. It's not the government's job to regulate them
the chemicals in diet sodas are known to directly cause cancer
They already have that
it's called cigarettes.
@Blood Good. Wish i thought of it. No one is holding a gun to my head saying 'drink it, NOW'
Personally think cigarettes have no purpose.
@Clonemaster™ 6.41 first of no, the constitution does not mention protecting corporations, also what kind of biases shit is, "protecting them " but not "regullationg them"
the gov't subsidized research programs that would make addictive fattening chemicals easier to produce and cheaper to purchase than regular sugar
The tobacco in them could be used for poultices instead of smoking.
Yeah, aspartame etc are disgusting.
its literal cancer
Give ol' future that sweet siren song known as sucrose.
@futurestorms you think people that smoke cigs dont want to stop? do they say "hey its not like someone is holding agun to my head"
corn syrup is cheaper to purchase than sugar
there are chemicals in the cigs that make it extemely hard to quit
@Blood Don't care. You make the choice. They supply it. Supply and demand.
if we were to raise the corporate tax and lowered income tax, it would allow for citizens to as a whole earn more money than corporations do
@Blood the government simply has no role in anything to which it's not afforded by the constitution. That's the way the government is structured.
Reminder, though, that initially people made the decision to start smoking
it doesn't matter if the corporations leave or not, largely because the demands that they would fill would be open for new companies to fill
@futurestorms also what about monopolies in which a single corporations controls 80 to 90
of the product
and sugar is already addictive
90% of television is controlled by 6 corporations
Cig smokers are literally cancer, they chose to start, they choose to not stop, and they whine and bitch every step of the way
