Liberty and Accessibility

Tuesday, December 05, 2006

Today, New York City's board of health banned most trans fats from restaurants. There is nothing wrong with this is there? Afterall, people need to lose weight and it's not like the food will taste much different, so this is a good thing right? No! First of all, who is the government to tell people what they can and can eat? Can't Americans take some responsibility for their health or has our society come to a point where the government needs to be our parents? Secondly, America is not a communist country and restaurants are private businesses. Therefore, no government agency should be able to tell these businesses what products they can and can't sell.
