I’m not surprised the food police want to expand their nanny state socialism on the United States in the name of the “public good”. The food industry goes along with these “voluntary programs” hoping to stave off full blown government control but are only fooling themselves. Just ask the oi, gas, and other energy producers. They’ve made concession after concession on top of the regulations and still the government does all it can to cripple those industries. The result: higher prices and a crippled economy.
The food police believe they know better than everyone else how to live and eat, but more importantly believe they have the right to dictate to any and everyone how to eat. It’s nothing new, of course, and are merely a symptom of a problem that needs to be eliminated from this nation’s governing officials: the nanny state dictatorship mentality. Americans need to start thinking for themselves, assert their own authority as citizens, be responsible parents to their kids instead of trying to be their friends, and educate themselves about nutrition from unbiased sources free of special interest groups pushing whatever agenda they are after.
