Like Taking Toys From Babies

In Santa Clara County, California, “officials” voted to ban restaurants from giving away toys with kids’ meals. The associated press says, “The ordinance is largely symbolic as it would only cover unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County, meaning only about a dozen fast-food outlets and several other family-owned restaurants would be affected.”

Leave it to meddlesome politicians to not only try to infringe on personal freedoms but to do it in a less than affective manner.

What ever happened to personal responsibility? Who does not know how to make a choice for themselves? Are we ignorant serfs needed the guidance and protection of the magistrate? If a 13 year old girl is deemed responsible enough to choose to have sex and then an abortion, isn’t an adult of any age responsible enough to choose what they can eat?

I believe people of all genders, races and ethnicities are intelligent enough to make choices for themselves. We are not ignorant.

More government means less freedom and choice.

I choose freedom and responsibility.

Thus saith me.
