An Aside. . . Or Is It?
I’m not saying trans fats are good for you. But at what point do we begin to acknowledge (or rediscover?) the limits of government? Is there such a point, or have we plunged headlong off the cliff beyond the point of no return?
Do we really need the federal government and/or state governments to regulate every aspect of our lives? It would be nice if the basic function of domestic security were addressed with such vigor and these ancillary intrusions that creep forth consistently like vines could be consciously reconsidered.
Aside from security, the mandate of governments state and federal is that of a truck. But these governments have grown beyond that of massive ocean liners.
Or so it seems.
