The Fed knew about the housing bubble before it burst but lied and said they didn't: Bill HR 1424 to buy bad paper (eventually called TARP) was introduced in March 9, 2007, before there began to be bad commercial paper from private subprime RE loans, in August.

My Fast Food Gripes And Praises. Links To Healthy Eating

Date: Tuesday, April 12, 2016 5:00 PM EDT

At my age I probably should not eat too much fast food. I try not to. I run my dogs and try to stay healthy. But going into fast food restaurants has definitely been an eye opener lately. I have a few gripes and praises. This is not an exhaustive study, as I included only 10 franchises. For example, I don't cover Five Guys or Smashburger, both tasty but pretty rich.

I didn't cover a nice fast food franchise, Chick fil A which will finally locate in Las Vegas. The founder, Mr Cathy, passed on and had a thing against Nevada because of gambling. Las Vegas is a regular place, except for the strip. Well, that is unless you have taken Abilify, which makes some people gamble uncontrollably. I kid you not.

Do not think that fast food restaurants are all bad. In fact, you can bust your diet at formal restaurants even faster than at fast food restaurants because of large portions. You can get a little portion control at the fast food restaurant and pick healthy choices too.

So, here are the 10 fast food places for my gripes and praises:

1. The soda machine at Jack in the Box is really cool, with lots of flavors and lots of diet soda flavors, as well as flavored waters and other healthy alternatives. Kudos to Jack in the Box for the soda machine and for being one of the first fast food places to offer a full breakfast menu 24/7. There are a few healthy choices at the restaurant though not many.

2. McDonald's, I have concluded, has two things saving it. Breakfast and coffee are saving McDonald's. McDonald's has the best sausage, and that is crucial. McDonald's has the best coffee among fast food joints, and that is crucial. The hash brown tasted like industrial cleaner.

The biscuits at the most popular fast food franchise are so salty and they also lack fluffiness. You just can't have biscuits that lack fluffiness. Maybe I got a bad one. They need to cook the scrambled eggs a little longer. I am not a fan of shiny eggs. That could be a personal preference. At least McDonald's has a few breakfast items served throughout the day.
