Fast food: Yes or no?Posted Friday, January 4, 2013, at 3:37 PM
Most Americans are against the idea of the government attempting to regulate or limit access to fast food, according to a new poll reported by the Associated Press.
Rightfully so. I agree that healthy eating should be promoted - and that some fast food is ridiculously unhealthy; over 1,400 calories and 107 grams of fat, as one hamburger contains, is just gross. Delicious, but gross.
But we don't need government intervention to tell us how to eat. From seeing the gridlock in Washington recently, I'm beginning to think the less government from either political party, the better.
