With the United States government able to simply ban the use or production of anything they find offensive or “bad for us”,  we appear to be well on our way to becoming worse and more restricted than any communist country in history, save for the whole killing of millions of their own people.

Federal agencies like the EPA are shutting down whole energy industries, the IRS is targeting citizens, Homeland Security is procuring tanks and ammo while pushing gun confiscation, The NSA is recording our every word and keystroke.

These departments are acting as their own little thiefdoms and it seems we citizens can do nothing about it.

Now it’s been announced the FDA will be banning the use of trans fats. Gee, what’s wrong with that? It’s for our own good, is it not? They’re simply looking after the health of us stupid citizens that don’t have the sense to come in out of the rain unless told to. Trans fats are bad and should banned, right?

Well, no for two important reasons. First, how dare the government tell us what we can and cannot eat, drink, etc. Second; with all the conflicting science, why should we even believe anyone who claims that trans fats, or anything consumed in moderation is bad for us?

On Friday CNN reported that artificial trans fat in foods may eventually become a thing of the past.

The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday took a first step toward potentially eliminating most trans fat from the food supply, saying it has made a preliminary determination that a major source of trans fats — partially hydrogenated oils — is no longer “generally recognized as safe.”

If the preliminary determination is finalized, according to the FDA, then partially hydrogenated oils will become food additives that could not be used in food without approval. Foods with unapproved additives cannot legally be sold.

What this is, is about control, plain and the latest fad of junk science. Want proof? Let’s just look at some of the things we’ve been scared, over the last few decades, into going without because they are “bad” for us.
