It's about food.
It's about your home.
It's about your life.
The government is worried about all of the above.
All I'm saying is you should be worried they're worried.
They're telling you that you can't take care of yourself. You can't be trusted with what you put in your mouth or what you sign on the mortgage dotted line.
So they'll tell you what to put in your mouth and they'll save you from what you signed on that dotted line.
Does anyone see a trend here?
Personal responsibility has now become government responsibility.
We don't eat right. The government will make damn sure we do eat right.
We don't read the fine print on a teaser-rate mortgage, the government will forgive our stupidity signing that mortgage.
Inequities in the tax system? Just tax the rich guy more — that should do it.
Bit by bit, quite literally bite by bite, what we do, who we are and how we act, is being decided in some corridor in Washington.
It begins with them suggesting we eat a salad. It ends with our having to swallow something far more meaningful: our pride.
