Hello, Uncle Sam? I’m over 21. Adult. I vote. I pay taxes….

LOTS of taxes.

But Uncle Sam wants to regulate how much salt, fat, trans fats, sugar, beef, pork, and who knows what else I eat.  It’s not enough the First Lady is imposing her will on kids, with or without the consent of their parents, but the FDA will regulate what someone (in a “free market economy”, by the way) can sell me.  No wonder Mr. Obama is/was reading The Post-American World by Fareed Zakaria.

So much for choice.

When I was a kid, I used to hear adults say “What???? I’m free, white, and over 21.”  I always wondered why they had to be white.  And when I was a teenager, someone decided we were adults after 18  (unless we want to drink, or buy a gun; then we’re children).

The point is that as every day goes by we’re being treated more and more as children, and we’re not going to the ballot boxes in droves to say “No”.  That’s the part I really don’t understand.
