Oh, boy, New York City’s in the news again today!
Michael Bloomberg’s gone, but his mayoral successor, former Sandinista groupie Bill de Blasio (real name, Warren Wilhelm Jr.) is all set to follow in his footsteps. Bloomberg was last heard from trying to ban large sodas. De Blasio is ready to make war on salt.
Starting next month, providing a court order doesn’t stop it, the city will require restaurants, etc., to warn diners of any dish that contains more salt than is recommended by doctors.
Why are they doing this? Well, Wilhelm/de Blasio says it’s to “help New Yorkers make better decisions…”
Get it? They’ll help you make better decisions by making those decisions for you!
One by one, bit by bit, the libs who call themselves “pro-choice” work to take away your choices. How many do they plan to leave you with?
They wouldn’t dream of interfering with anyone’s choice to engage in bizarre, dangerous, or destructive sexual behavior. Fornication is a sacred cow to them. But you’d better not order a dish that has too much salt in it, and woe betide the restaurant who doesn’t warn you off.
The difference between a child and an adult is that a child doesn’t know enough to make his own decisions about a lot of things. My parents used to decide when it was my bedtime. Now I decide.
Uh-oh… Is a bedtime regulation next? I hope I haven’t given them ideas.
