An alderman in Chicago wants the city to ban trans-fats in restaurants. Ahem. Maybe if we all just sat in our recliners and ate broccoli, no one would ever get fat. Let”s pass a law. And of course, when faced with criticism (as these idiots usually rightfully are), it comes down to the children:
- Ã¢â‚¬Å“If it were just about adults, I would say, Ã¢â‚¬ËœO.K., we should butt out,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Ã¢â‚¬Â Mr. Burke said in an interview. Ã¢â‚¬Å“But youngsters are assuming diets that are unhealthy.Ã¢â‚¬Â
God forbid the damn parents take some interest in their kids lives and stop letting them eat Whoppers every day. We need to pass a law to make the state the parental replacement. It”s stories like this than can just ruin your day.
