Obesity Report Wants Gov't Restrictions on "Unhealthy" Restaurants

From CNSNews.com:

A newly released report by the Institute for Medicine and the National Research Council details strategies for local governments to combat what it calls an epidemic of childhood obesity, including enacting zoning and land-use regulations that would “restrict fast food establishments near school grounds and public playgrounds.”

On the other hand, try this: Constitutional limits on unhealthy government.

The crazy assumption being, of course, that a free and dignified people do not need tyrannical, micromanagerial government to save them from themselves.

But these sorts of reports, along with the threat of Obamacare, etc., suggest that free Americans may need to organize to protect their lives, families, and freedoms from an increasingly intrusive, overbearing, and anti-Constitutional hegemonic regime headquartered in Washington, D.C.

Hoo boy! Further government regulation of business - just what we don't need - at any level, local to Federal.
One thing conveniently overlooked by many is the additional government staff it takes to manage enforcement of all those regulations. As an example, it was reported today that the "clunkers program" has so far managed to reimburse only 17% of the filings, and THEY ARE HIRING MORE PROCESSORS (!). And, tell me please, what will happen to those new hires AFTER the "crunch" is over? Will they be released, or simply retained? There was enough controversy over the inverse Robin Hood program to begin with, and now the burden to taxpayers will increase even more. Come to think of it, where is the constitutional authority to hire (and then fire) those processors, etc...?
But, I digress.... the main point is to stay aware that every new or expanded regulation put in place just adds to your & my tax burden. Is THAT the basic purpose of our government?
