‘Experts’ Want Government To Control Sugar! Ain’t that Sweet?

License Required...

‘Experts’ prescribing more government control of daily living aren’t scarce. They must be running out of things to take over though, now they’re onto sugar. What’s next, air?. Hmnn…wanna bet the EPA isn’t working on that? Societal Control of Sugar Needed to Ease Public Health Concerns, Experts Say will bring you current, if you can stand it. They’re advocating, using the present fat kiddie crusade as motive power, treating sugar like booze, drugs and machine guns, which is to say, government, not citizens, decides who gets any and if so, how much. That’ll cut sugar, all right; a Nobel Economics laureate famously said that if the Feds took over managing the Sahara, there’d be a shortage of sand. I have an appointment with my doctor in six weeks to get a prescription for a Coke…which will cost me $15; I’ll only have to pay $5 of that if my insurer will only add it to its list of covered necessities. That will stick all my friends and neighbors with the $10 difference…

If anyone in Congress takes this seriously, I’d shoot myself if I thought my heirs could afford my heavily government-controlled and mandated embalming and burial. Maybe I should drink myself to death with government-controlled booze, then I’ll be already pickled…
