Death by cheap chimichanga?
You have to hand it to these nanny state hippies. With all their talk about peace, love and government intervention... with them insisting on throwing around your tax dollars to show "compassion" for your downtrodden fellow man... you'd think you were dealing with Gandhi himself.
Well, they may share Gandhi's penchant for sandals -- but that's where the similarities end. Because if you think these leftist, elitist snobs care about you for a second... that they even RESPECT you as an adult... let me clue you into something.
They think you're a moron, plain and simple. They believe we're all a bunch of brainless boobs who can't wipe our own noses unless Uncle Sam provides the handkerchief.
And if you need proof, check out this latest research that claims to have finally gotten to the bottom of the obesity epidemic in America. Turns out the culprit wasn't folks who refuse to take responsibility for their own health -- or doting parents who can't tell their junk food obsessed kids no.
The real villain was the McDonald's Dollar Menu. Looks like the Hamburglar is finally headed back to the slammer.
Researchers from the RAND Corporation are suggesting -- with a straight face -- that Americans are getting tubby because food is too cheap. We're spending less than half as much disposable income on food as we were spending 80 years ago -- and portions are getting bigger.
You can already hear the quasi-socialists getting ready to use this study to force more junk food bans and taxes across America, right? Because they think you lack the brainpower (and the willpower) to say no to a second trip to the buffet line.
But here's the truth. Fruits and vegetables have also gotten cheap over the past 80 years, but today's lazy parents would rather pop a TV dinner in a microwave than grill some chicken or whip up a salad.
The obesity epidemic in America isn't about cheap food -- it's about cheap values. And fixing it requires us all to learn the one thing our government has no business teaching anyone.
