Government looking out after me
It's bad enough that we are all becoming owners of banks and we (or our kids) will have to ante up the $700,000,000,000 that we are told we have to lest we be beset by the mother of all depressions that we are being warned about by a Republican president who has lost all financial credibility, by two presidential candidates that can't say no or 'what if we don't', and by the likes of our Treasury Secretary, FDIC Chairman (excuse our lack of gender correctness) and the moguls of Wall Street, but now we learn that they want to help us make our food intake decisions, particularly if you happen to live in or visit California.
It was bad enough when the Los Angles City Council said that there would be no more fast food restaurants in southeast L.A. because people there are overweight, but now the good conservative govenator Schwarzenegger has signed a bill requiring all restaurants with more than 20 locations to post calorie counts for each of their items on their menus or indoor menu boards. Surely, those who eat Big Macs or Whoppers will cease and desist from their destructive eating habits.
While these left coast nuts sanction life styles that promote AIDS, while good pro-life Catholics like Nancy Pelosi promote the culture of death by abortion, it's nice to know that they want us to lead happier, if leaner, healthy lives--those of us that are allowed to survive.
I sure can't wait until someone passes a law that tells me what color socks to wear each day in order to simplify my life........
