New York City has banned trans fats, certain states are considering controlling school lunch programs and decisions are made to remove pop and vending machines that sell chocolate and candy and chips from schools and
Now in no way do I support a nanny state anywhere, but should these decisions be made to regulate what we can and cannot eat?
Considering that the rise in diabetes and heart related diseases in people at a younger age, conversely making health care cost rise, I can see the governments point in trying to control an individuals right to make
their own decisions in order to make better the public safety and well being.
I guess the question that bears asking is: Do we want the government to control what we do from the cradle to the grave because they feel they know what is best for us, or do we demand that education and personal responsibility
become paramount in the legislation of rights and freedoms when it comes to an individuals decisions on how to behave and live.
I can see the ban on chocolate causing an #Occupy movement all it's own. Big Trouble.
Have a great Christmas Everybody
