Be careful of what you wish for. Today it is smoking. Tomorrow it will be fast food. They already started attacking some of the major fast food
companies, and all in the name of health. Give enough time with enough shove without enough resistance, then all fast food restraunts will disappear.
Don't think it will be just restraunts like McDonalds and Wendys. Bye, bye pizza, chineese, possibly kings, denny's, eatin park, and many others
Hmmmm, now we got rid of most of the so called fast food leaving only expensive restraunts you have to sit and wait for your food. Now they can attack
cooking oils that are used to fry food at home, all fats, and all junk foods. Maybe those frozen dinners aren't so good either.
Remember this is all in the name of health. Obesity is a health problem. How does it affect you, hmmmm in increased insurance and emergancy rescues.
Since humanity can't regulate itself, I guess the government has to regulate it for us.
On top of that while they are regulating what we can eat, why not let them regulate how much we can eat also. Now we all have a little card that
allows us to buy so much food. Then we can only buy so much of each type of food, with vegetables being allotted the most. I hope you like
On top of this, of course they will have to do away with caffeen. Too much gets a person jettery and nervous. Then they have problems sleeping at
night. Can't have this now can we? No one is allowed any coffee or any type of pop any longer. Sorry, now parties have to be done with vegetables,
vegetable dip, and juice. Oooops, the dip is out since it is fat. Raw vegetables then. No pizza, chips, or pop sorry.
Sorry, we can't let little Johnny or Suzie have any cake or ice cream since they are fattening also. No pies, no cookies, no white bread, and hmmm
what else can they eliminate. How about white flower and sugar. Those are fattening also. Stores will no longer have any snack or candy isles.
Now lets see, we got rid of ciggerattes and all bad food items. Next, we will need to work on all alcholoic drinks banned period. We will have to be
smarter than they were during proabition though. Maybe if martial law was in effect....we're due for another terrorist threat again aren't we????
Now lets see, cars are a major polutant and kill many people. We need to get rid of as many cars as possible. Make people bike to work. Expand our
transportation system. Make it so the car has to be full before being allowed to drive anywhere. Hmmm, I'm sure there are many more draconian
measures they can take with this.
Now we need to work on improving everyone's health. Lets make everyone have to execrise everyday or every other day. We could create state sponsored
gyms, and for people to go. Of course we will have an assistance program for those who can't afford to pay for it. Everyone will have to attend at
least three times a week whether they want to or not, or have time or not.
Lets see, we have to help people regulate themselves, so they don't hurt themselves. Hmmmmm, skining, rollerskating, roller blading, ice skating,
boxing, football are all dangerous sports and need to be banned. People can get hurt during a baseball game, so that gets put on the banned list.
Horse riding is dangerous also. People have gotten killed at amusement parks, so they will need to be closed down. All those balls flying around on a
golf course is dangerous. I guess mini-golf is ok though.
Of course we can't have people loafing around all day playing compter games. All games need to be banned. Of course we use the TV to brainwash people
and give them our news, so that stays. The internet is highly debatable. Maybe it can stay if regulated a lot.
I do believe this is a very dangerous and slippery slope we are on. Once one right and freedom is taken away, then another one will be, then another
one will be. They will chip at it until we can do nothing, eat nothing, or say nothing unless they say it is ok to do so. The less rights taken away
from us the better especially in this politically correct hot patato environment.
