Ban Salt

It's absolutely ridiculous.

But, you know, they will try to do it.

Think about it, New York has already passed a bill banning soft drinks over a certain size (temporarily blocked). The logical conclusion is that anything that can possibly be "proven" as contributing to death will also be attacked.

I saw a news article yesterday citing a study (thanks Harvard!) that shows 2.3 million Americans die every year because of salt. Well, too much sodium. My first thought:
"The bastards are going to try and ban salt next."
I was wrong. They have already tried.
Mr. Ortiz, a Democrat who represents several neighborhoods where salt is known to be heavily used, including Red Hook and Sunset Park, told The Times Union of Albany that he was inspired to introduce the bill by the case of his father, who used salt excessively for years and developed high blood pressure and had a heart attack.  
Thank you, Leftists, for continuing to try to micro-manage my life. I think I'll do just fine without your... "help".

People keep on saying we conservatives over-react. That they really aren't trying to control every aspect of every American's life. I say, "Open your eyes."

Things to be banned or getting more restricted:
  • guns
  • cigarrettes
  • prayer
  • oil
  • soda
  • Christianity
  • Judaism
  • moral codes
  • hetero-only marriage
  • salt
  • truth-speakers / facts
  • capitalism
  • pregnancy
  • US Military soldiers
  • carbon dioxide
Things to be accepted as basic human rights or "free speech":
  • homosexuality
  • universal health care
  • drugs
  • abortion
  • Muslim radicalism
  • promiscuity
  • pornography
  • blatant lies about conservatives
  • taking the "rich's" money
And every time you vote for Obama, or brush off that Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid absurd statement, or say Planned Parenthood does good work, look at that list again. The Democratic party isn't what it used to be. Neither is the Republican for that matter. But, one has become anti-American.

While on the subject of salt... does anyone remember that salt is what allowed humanity to make it out of the dark ages? To sail from Europe to the "New" world? To explore the west (of America)? Hmmm... doubt it.
