"From seat belt laws, to smoking bans, to prohibition of (some) drugs, prohibitionists have led their propaganda campaigns against personal freedom with a 'health care cost' argument. 'Society' (by which they mean, taxpayers) will bear the health care costs from vehicle injuries, diseases from second-hand smoke, and addiction. And now, they are extending their successful agitprop campaigns to salty, sugary, or fatty foods -- that is, all the foods you like!" (07/06/11)
