Yesterday our illustrious mayor announced that he was going to persuade food manufacturers to lower the salt content in their food by fifty percent over the next few years, and if they do not do so the city will pass legislation forcing it. This on the heels of his ban on transfats, which more or less ruined the city's pastry industry (or, at least, the product they produce).
I fully admit that I was in favor of the smoking ban for restaurants and bars. I only smoke about five cigars a year, and cigar bars were exempt. But this has gone way too far.
PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO KILL THEMSELVES WITH THE FOODS THEY LOVE! PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO EAT WHAT THEY WANT! PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO LIVE FREE AND, FRANKLY, DIE HARD!
It is no surprise from Mayor gun control, no fat, anti smoking, doesn't drink, don't have any fun in your life because it's bad for ya. This guy may have been a Republican when the wind was right, and he may be a billionaire, but speaking as a liberal he is clearly one of us.
In all the worst ways.
This nanny state crap has got to stop.
