The FDA announced today that it's considering regulating salt.
You may no longer be free to consume as much of it as you want soon.
People, this is why it's important to oppose ANY government control in the minute details of our lives. This is why fierce opposition to things that may seem "good" (like smoking bans in restaurants, as one example) is so important. First it's one thing, then another, then another, and suddenly everyone wonders where their freedom went.
I was infuriated when people I know who call themselves freedom lovers voted for the Arizona smoking ban. Do they not realize that things like that only pave the way for more and more government intrusion and control over our personal lives?
On that sad election night I listened to the Rush song "Witch Hunt" over and over ... the following lines really stuck out:
Ignorance and prejudice, and fear walk hand in hand
Those who know what's best for us must rise and save us from ourselves
What's next, banning red clothing because psychologists say it incites anger in people? (Maybe I should keep my mouth shut because Nancy Pelosi might try to get that one passed.)
