Freedom of choice is anathema to the Nanny State.They will choose for you, and you’d better like it, or else.

McDonald’s bowed to the force of Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign. She might not be able to stop Barry (or herself!) from gorging on french fries but by golly she’s gonna take all the fun out of every kid’s Happy Meal.
