You Say Tomato

So the United States Congress, for lack of anything better to do with their time, has decided to announce that tomato sauce/pizza is now to be considered a vegetable.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Our Congressmen and women wasted away time to make this announcement today.  But apparently, whoever sponsored this bill forgot to use their brain at all.

First of all… I hate to be the one to point this out, but a tomato is a fruit, not a vegetable.  Yes, you can actually look that fact up.  We tend to think of it as a vegetable, but it is indeed a fruit.  So tomato sauce comes from a fruit and not a vegetable, and therefore, it can’t be a vegetable.  One would tend to think that our leaders in Congress would tend to know this little fact.  Really??  Not one of them caught that mistake out of everyone there?  They have to be complete dumbasses.  And we expect these people to help fix our economy and get us back to work?  They can’t even tell a fruit from a vegetable.  I’m sorry, but my jaw is still on the ground from this complete lack of using one’s brain.  I honestly wish that we could walk up to them, smack them upside the head, and call them fucking dumbasses.

My second point comes along the lines of pizza being a vegetable because of the tomato sauce.  Now keep in mind the earlier bit of this rant.  Now yes, a pizza can have your dairy group, your fruit group, your meat group, and your vegetable group, and your bread group depending on what you put on your particular pizza.  However, the tomato sauce does not make the entire pizza a vegetable… and not just because a tomato is a fruit either.  We’ve been complaining for years that Americans are getting too fat… which is now leading to several health issues.  Now some of this is because we as a society are becoming lazy-asses.  But it still doesn’t help by the food that we eat (and the amount in which we eat it in).  This only exacerbates the problem.  I mean… how fucking fat do we have to be as a society before we get it into our heads?  Eating pizza every once in a while is OK, but it is not a vegetable (or a fruit) and isn’t healthy for any of us.  Chef Jamie Oliver must be having a stroke right about now if he’s read this story yet.  This just makes the school system in America shove pizza down our kids throats , teach them bad eating habits when they should be learning good eating habits, and making them get fatter and fatter (especially as recess and PE are being cut).

I would honestly like to know which Congressman or woman came up with this legislation… and which ones voted for it.  They need to be voted out for being complete fucking dumbasses who couldn’t even get the basic information right to start with.  We expect these people to help us out of our current problems and run our country?  Thank God that Congress had already solved all of our problems.  People are back to work, the economy is booming, no more people sneaking across the borders, no more dependence on oil, pollution is in check, drugs are gone, our infrastructure is the best in the world… oh wait.  None of that has actually happened.  This has been a huge waste of their time and our taxpayer dollars.  I haven’t seen Congress do something this frivolous since they renamed French Fries to Freedom Fries (and then back again) after France was against us in going into Iraq.  (funny how France was right and called us on our bullshit.)  These people need to be taught that there are better things to do that isn’t wasting our time and dollars as this has done.  Maybe they should put focus on jobs and the economy instead of tomatoes.  Last time I checked, tomatoes aren’t going to solve our problems.  And maybe, just maybe, even with the simplest of things, Congress should do a little research on whatever subject they are going to be talking about before they open their mouths.  Tomatoes… a vegetable… really?  Apparently, even I am smarter than all of you since I already knew it was a fruit.  Maybe we should send them all back to elementary school because, as the game show used to say, they are not smarter than a fifth grader… and that is truly sad.  I think it’s time we elect people that actually have a brain and know how to use it.  And for anyone who did vote for this bill, it’s time for them to go back to the real world and find a new job.  Bon Appetit.
