Food Marketing and Advertising is None of Michelle Obama’s Business

Liberals think everything is government’s business.
Check it out:

Michelle Obama, first lady of the United States — not content with botching the school lunch menu, not content with urging everybody to drink water so that they increase their exercise and energy level (which is a bogus thing) — Michelle Obama “now wants food makers and entertainment companies to spend less time advertising sweet and salty foods to kids and more time promoting healthier options.”

Now, let me just say something. This is something that may not seem like a big deal to a lot of people. “Oh, the first lady just wants to help.” Let me tell you the truth of the matter. This is none of her business. The free market takes care of this stuff. On what basis is the unelected Michelle Obama empowered to control American manufacturing and advertising? This is how, by the way, we eventually get advertising bans on products that were seen as dangerous.

This is how this slow creep happens: The good intentions of a supposedly nice woman who’s a great mother with a great garden who really cares about people. At the root of it is her belief that you are too stupid to know what’s good to eat and drink and what isn’t. You are too stupid to know how to best take care of and look out for yourself. You are too stupid to do what they want you to do on your own, and because you’re too stupid or because you are too resistant, they are going to use force.
