State set to unveil fast-food menu rules

Post by libertarianandproud on Tue May 19, 2009 11:01 am

BOSTON (Reuters) Massachusetts is expected to unveil the toughest restaurant menu labeling rules in the United States on Wednesday, requiring fast-food chains to list how many calories are in the food they sell in a bid to combat obesity.

In one of my classes they brought up a study that said only 1 in 10 Aussies gets enough veggies, but 9 out of 10 know roughly how much they should be getting and how to eat healthily. The problem isn't with people not knowing that fast food contains large amounts of calories, and putting a sign up to that effect won't affect the obesity rates.

What I want to know is when did personal responsibility for what we put in our mouths go out the window?

Sooner or later, the government will force feed vegges and drugs to each of your kids and you won't be able to stop it. Recently the government schools in our area started MANDATED drug tests for students in after school activities. Parents can not opt out. They could be testing for anything, and not tell us. Smile Smile

Sign over control of your kids to the government.

There is only one other option . . .
