Keep Your Laws Off…

  • RTR32W9K.jpg

Would you rather sip on unpasteurized milk or a cold glass of soda? Do you prefer Saturday lunch at a fast food joint or a farmers market?

Regardless of your choices, your food freedom — your right to grow, raise, produce, buy, sell, share, cook, eat, and drink the foods you want — is under attack. Here are ten food freedom issues to keep an eye on in 2014.  (Fox News)

There’s the usual – trans fat ban, large soda ban, mandatory calorie reporting, etc. It never ceases to amaze me that the same party that so successfully courts the pro-choice vote and the LGBT vote with the concept of keeping government out of the bedroom can get away with telling us what we can or can’t put into our bodies in the dining room or kitchen.

One of the little-reported bits in the ACA is that vending machine companies are going to have to list the nutritional information on everything sold in each vending machine. Naturally, every single thing sold inside the vending machine already has a label listing the nutritional information, but the ACA requires it be on the outside of the machine. Because, you know, someone might think that a Twinkie or  Snickers bar is health food before they buy it.

I hate to break it to the food Nazis, but people eat stuff that’s not good for them. No matter how many places you post the caloric content, people are still going to cram Big Macs, powdered donuts, and chocolate bars down their gullets. You’re not going to stop it with a label, or with fifty labels. And if you think the backlash on guns is bad, just wait until you try to take away junk food.

Why does “keep your laws off my body/out of the bedroom” get turned into “Sure, make laws about what I can or can’t eat,” by the same group, without notice or uproar?  (Jay G.)

Right On! Jay G.!

I love how some folks protest for their rights to be let alone, but demand others fall in line.  I’m thinking, at a minimum inconsistency, but in reality hypocrisy.

PS – this new communist clown in NYC makes the last one look libertarian!  Seriously!

  1. I still cannot fathom why some people crave domination over others. It’s infuriating!
