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. Out with the french fries, in with the apple slices! McDonald’s used to offer parents a choice – fries or apples. But that wasn’t good enough for the First Busybody; so now everybody gets apple slices, whether they want them or not. In New York City Nurse Bloomberg is pleased as punch.
Somewhere the Founding Fathers are not amused.
