When did we reach the point when we considered it acceptable for people to run around and try to tell other adults what size soda they may or may not buy?
Of course, the people supporting this kind of paternalistic nonsense will argue that we’re all footing the bill for the health care costs that come with obesity and diabetes. To me, that’s actually a big reason to oppose a single payer health care system. When the government pays for everyone’s boo-boo strips and insulin shots, then there’s nothing you do with your body that isn’t the government’s business. It’s a universal adapter for the Nanny State.
