Yes, small businesses having to create new menus is a financial burden.  A lot of smaller restaurants have trouble breaking even.  It can be a difficult business.  

Who cares about your convenience?  So you're saying you need government intervention in a private business, when you engage in a purely voluntary activity, so you don't have to do the work yourself?  How friggin lazy is that?  Really?  

I don't know who oversees My Fitness Pal or any other app.  I doubt their reliability is any different than the information you're going to trust is accurate coming from the restaurant.  

This isn't progress.  It's catering to a bunch of lazy consumers who don't want to do their own homework.  I log all of my food.  It's really not hard at all.    

They are gonna make new menus anyway.  Adding salt amounts won't change the cost.  So money isn't an issue here.

So what's left is accuracy and you just indicated you don't know if myfitness pal is accurate so that kind of kills that issue.

However, when McDonalds is required to put calorie counts on its menu that info IS checked by the government, prolly the FDA or a state equivalent.  the restaurant  doesn't just put what ever they want as you have suggested they would.

The curmudgeons of the world will just have to get over it like they did with calorie counts, traffic lights, trains and cell phones.

Top military officer contradicts Obama, says ISIS not 'contained'
Published December 01, 2015

America’s top-ranking military officer found himself at odds Tuesday with the nation’s commander-in-chief over his claim that the Islamic State was “contained” – an assertion President Obama had made before the Paris terror attacks. 

Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, gave a dim assessment when asked during a House Armed Services Committee hearing whether that's the case.

“We have not contained ISIL currently,” Dunford told Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va.

The answer runs counter to the claim made by Obama last month in an ABC News interview when asked about the status of the anti-ISIS campaign.

“I don't think they're gaining strength. What is true is that from the start our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq. And in Syria, they'll come in, they'll leave, but you don't see this systematic march by ISIL across the terrain,” Obama said.

The remarks were made a day before the Nov. 13 Paris terror attacks, which were carried out by ISIS militants, and later had to be clarified by the White House as the administration faced bipartisan criticism. White House Deputy Press Secretary Ben Rhodes said Obama was referring specifically to the group’s geographic expansion in Iraq and Syria.

“They had been on the march in both Iraq and Syria for some time but starting a year ago, we were able to halt that expansion,” Rhodes said in an interview.

At the Tuesday hearing, Defense Secretary Ash Carter also announced that the U.S. will send special ops forces to Syria while expanding its special ops presence in Iraq, to bolster the fight against ISIS.

Carter described the expansion in Iraq as a “specialized expeditionary targeting force.”

He said these special operators will be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence and capture ISIS leaders. He did not offer troop numbers, but said it was being done in cooperation with the Iraqi government.

He also confirmed previously announced details about the special ops force being sent to Syria. Carter said the U.S. approach there has been allowing local forces – backed by the U.S. – to gain momentum and push south toward ISIS’ capital of Raqqa.

"To build on that momentum, we're sending -- on President Obama's orders and the Chairman's and my advice -- Special Operations forces personnel to Syria to support the fight against ISIL,” Carter said, adding that the move will allow the U.S. to gain ground intelligence, enhance air capabilities, and allow local forces to gain and hold ISIS-occupied territory.

“Where we find further opportunity to leverage such capability, we will be prepared to expand it,” Carter said.

Carter, meanwhile, said that the “specialized expeditionary targeting force” would be deployed to assist Iraqi and Kurdish forces in putting further pressure on ISIS.

“This created a virtuous cycle of better intelligence, which generates more targets, more raids and more momentum,” he said, adding that the raids will be conducted at the invitation of the Iraqi government, and that the forces would also be able to launch operations into Syria.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
