When you allow progressives, socialists, and liberals a foothold in your country and your life, they desire more and more control. We allowed them in to help provide some jobs during the Great Depression. We allowed them in more to help give our old people supplemental income when retirement and savings accounts were unheard of. They were then allowed to institute health care for the poor and elderly as well. All good intentions.
They were then allowed to provide monies to the unemployed and unemployable. No longer were families thrown out in the cold and forced to find any kind of work should they lose their former jobs. Now, they can look for more fitting employment with ease and less stress.
They were then allowed to determine how much people got paid by private companies. They were allowed to dictate the level of health care that the company and worker agreed to. They were allowed to dictate taxes and fees on any and everything. They were allowed to dictate where people could live and what people could do do or construct on their own properties. They were allowed to take personal properties in place of property taxes. They were allowed to charge drivers for driving on certain roads and were now allowed to dictate what kinds of vehicles people could buy.
Lately, we have allowed these do-gooders, busy-bodies, over-bearers to dictate what kinds of food we could buy and eat. They banned certain foods and food ingredients and even how foods were made. Some have even gone to the extraordinary step of banning your easy access to food by just driving by the restaurant.
Now, these progressive, socialist, liberal nazi's are seeking to take that power one step more. NY Councilman now wants to ban the use of salt in eat-in or dine-out restaurants.
Some New York City chefs and restaurant owners are taking aim at a bill introduced in the New York Legislature that, if passed, would ban the use of salt in restaurant cooking.
"No owner or operator of a restaurant in this state shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food for consumption by customers of such restaurant, including food prepared to be consumed on the premises of such restaurant or off of such premises," the bill, A. 10129 , states in part.
This means that food can not be used in the preparation of meals that are meant to be eaten at the restaurant or meant to be taken home. Can you imagine going to McD's and ordering an order of their fries only to find them without salt? Can you imagine garlic bread with no salt?
Why not ban all flavors!! Why not allow the customer to chose any form and amount of flavor additive themselves? Only fair, right?
But, this law isn't like a regular "ban" bill. This one will have some bite.
The legislation, which Assemblyman Felix Ortiz , D-Brooklyn, introduced on March 5, would fine restaurants $1,000 for each violation.
If a chef, or fry cook, gets caught using salt in the slightest, or if 911 is called because someone reportedly saw what might have looked like salt, that would result in a $1,000 fine each and every time.
Question arises. Will restaurants even be allowed to have salt in their own private places of business?
What happens if a chef does not pay the stupid no-salt fine? Will they be arrested? Will they be arrested? Arrested for using salt?!?
Ortiz has said the salt ban would allow restaurant patrons to decide how salty they want their meals to be.
"In this way, consumers have more control over the amount of sodium they intake, and are given the option to exercise healthier diets and healthier lifestyles," Ortiz said, according to a Nation's Restaurant News report.
Once again, we find that these liberals claim their actions are only beneficial. They only seek to help people. You see, people are too stupid to know what decisions they should be making for their own health. People are incapable of making sound and reasonable decisions that impact their health. And, as we all know, controlling your health means controlling the cost of your health care. If you can increase your health, you lower the cost of your health care. Mr Oriz is only looking out for your health and your expenses. You don't know better.
But, what these idiots politicians are incapble of seeing, believing or comprehending is that people make thousands of decisions a day regarding their health and lifestyle. People CHOOSE to go to one food place over another. Their decisions are based on either cost or flavor, or both.
People attend restaurants because either they are really cheap and easy to get food from, or the food tastes so delectable that money is no object there. Good tasting food sells. Bland food shuts businesses down.
Idiot liberal politicians like this just don't understand that people must be free, are entitled to be free, are constitutionally guaranteed to be free, to make their own choices of where, when, how and in what flavor they buy their foods and meals.
But many chefs and restaurant owners said they are tired of politicians dictating what they can serve and what people can eat. They have opposed the city's anti-sodium and anti-transfat campaigns.
"Chefs would be handcuffed in their food preparation, and many are already in open rebellion over this legislation," said Orit Sklar, of My Food My Choice. "Ortiz and fellow anti-salt zealot Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City seek to undermine the food and restaurant business in the entire state."
People, isn't it high time people stand up for their rights and their freedoms? Stand up and protect your individual liberties! Stand up and dictate to THEM your freedom of choice.
Kick them out of office.
