Health and safety have gone too far

Today, I gave an interview to my local news station. It was on the topic of WARNING LABELS ON SODA! As I said in the interview, health and safety have gone too far.

We know that sodas aren’t healthy. We know sugar is bad if consumed in mass quanities, we don’t need the nanny state that our government has become to tell us that. It won’t matter what warnings are on the products, simply because most Americans don’t care. We have warning labels on everything, and we still use them. Cigarettes have a warning label, and we still smoke them. Besides, it should be the job of the parents to teach their kids about.

If they label soda because of the sugar content, then they should label the bags of sugar that we buy in the store. Why? Because apparently sugar is bad, mmmkay? Just limiting the warning to soda is one sided. Canned iced teas like Arizona, drinks that you get from Starbucks, the coffee you put in your pot at home, all contain sugar.

Of course, the nanny state won’t admit it, but they are making us all into wimps. I remember as.a kid, mama and daddy where our warning labels. Nowadays, you skin your knees and the.government is there to slap a warning label on you. What’s next? Are they going to warn you that walking can result in chronic knee pain? Or that running can result in tripping and that eating can cause you to choke? It’s fucking ridiculous! People are becoming mindless blobs because the government has to tell them that everything is bad for you!

Think for yourself, people!
