New York Mayor Bloomberg has decided that New Yorkers can’t be trusted to have access to soda served in anything larger than a 16 ounce cup. It’s clear that New Yorkers can’t be trusted in general, so this ban on soda is not so surprising. The New York City Council is now eyeing popcorn and coffee drinks for a possible ban, because if you can ban one thing you can ban everything.
Bloomberg is not the first politician to ban food. The FDA has been waging a vendetta against “fresh” food for years. Like raw milk and farm fresh eggs and small farm organic produce. The government has decided that unless it’s mass-produced at farms big enough to pay bribes hire a lobbyist, it’s not good for you.
Since we’re banning foods, I want to enter the discussion about what should be banned. I think I have some great ideas on that score. Here are 4 foods that should be banned. Are you listening, Big Brother?!
