KFC Outrage about Gift Cerificate...

Supposedly health experts in Australia are mad because KFC is offering gift certificates.

As far as I am concerned, this is absurd. Not that KFC is offering gift certificates, but that fact that health "experts" are outraged.

First off, it is a gift certificate. It is not like they are giving a discount for stuff that is bad for you. Or that the goverment is giving subsidies to make it cheaper. It is a gift certificate. It is no different than giving cash.

Also, KFC has one responsibility when it comes down to it. And it is not to the long term health of the general public They have a fiduciary responsibility to increase shareholder equity, they seem to be doing it. Health experts have a responsibility to make us healthier. They are failing miserably. Just look at the obesity numbers. I am not relying on health experts (not good at it) or KFC (why do they care?) to be healthier.

I guess personal accountability is dead.

By the way, if you think the gift certificates you receive are bad for you, send them to this address in protest.
