Nanny politics seem to be running rampant these days. The government is hell bent on strangling us with taxes and regulations, and now they want to tell us what's good for us and what to eat. The Trans-fat ban is a sad example of this. I know they are not good for you, but come on, who's life is it anyway? I admire the fight of Rachel Cocca Dott against Albany County's ban on the fat. The government has absolutely no right to do any of this. It is pure and simple, Socialism. -- which is in itself, Communism!
There seems to be a growing trend among politicians, to try to take away not just some, but ALL of our civil liberties. It's bad enough that they tax EVERYTHING, now they want to tell us what and how to eat. I say it's none of their damn business! They continue to pick our pockets, and then around election time tell us what a great job they're doing. Look at Obama's health care program. What gets me is that people who can afford, 'Cadillac', health care plans, will be taxed because of it. Break this down for a moment. You purchase your health care with money that you've gone out and worked for, and that money is taxed. Now the money that has already been taxed, will be taxed again with your purchase of health insurance. Makes no sense if you ask me.
But now with the door open, and nut cases like Mayor Bloomberg in New York City doing everything they can to control peoples lives, we've got to put an end to all of it. We need politicians once again who work for us. Many take the attitude that they know best. To hell with them I say. We need to make some wholesale changes with the people who were elected to do what's best for us. This current group who sit in office need to go. I hope people do what's necessary next Tuesday to help get us back on the right track.
The ban on Trans Fat is plain and simple -- Unconstitutional. Whats next, will they tell us that all toilet paper must be one ply to cut down on sewage build up? Or maybe they'll say we can only wear cotton clothing, because it will break down easier than rayon, or microfiber, once it's thrown away.. I know this seems absurd, but I think the government telling you what and how to eat is nothing but a Big Brother attemp to further control our lives. Someone should read the Constitution & Bill of Rights once in a while.
