When New York Leads...

California often follows. We're talking about banning trans- fats in the state following New York City's example.

Will we do the same with New York's most recent ban?

Thanks to Homeland Stupidity for the heads up on this one.

Unreal.The Mendoza bill(Tony Mendoza D-Artesia) was approved by the Health Committee by a 9-4 vote,and affects businesses classified as "food facilities"and would go into effect in 2009.I spoke about this ridiculous bill at the last Eureka city council meeting,explaining that government needs to get away from doing this type of crap.I'll decide for myself to eat or not eat at a facility which uses trans fats.What's next,are we going to be required to take a blood test after every meal if you receive some form of medical insurance and wish for it to continue,which proves that no trans fats were digested in your meal?Is the state going to require that cities or counties hire inspectors to oversee these "food facilities"?
The bill now goes to the Appropriations Committee where it should be approprietly destroyed.

It is a great idea, and something that will be very beneficial to our citizens' health.

Why is it the governments job to tell me what I can and cannot put in my body? Why this need for the government to babysit people? I stopped needing a babysitter by the time I was 8 and sure as hell don't need one at 30.

It really is interesting reading people's reactions to any law the government tries to pass these days. If you folks want to cry foul, try crying about one of the many dumb laws already on the books.

This is just a preview of what can be expected when "universal health care" i.e. socialized medicine is in force.

Isn't government wonderful? But I fail to see the connection between this nonsense and universal health care.

I'm against this law only if that means you'll all eat these poisons and they kill you fast so we'll be rid of you.

My fear is you'll linger on, with expensive chronic diseases and operations that I have to subsidize though insurance and taxes. And you'll be squealing that the Gub'ment should do even more to pay for sick suffering people.
