Unsavory Price of Liberty

Lots of paperwork at Nanepashemet Telecom these days.  It's always been interesting to me that the paperwork is a lot more burdensome then the actual work product activity.
There should be some sort of paperwork per activity ratio.   Maybe Mayor Bloomberg in NY can regulate this into law as he seeks to limit the intake of sugary drinks and popcorn.
The Mayor knows what's best for us and wants the government to make us criminals if we drink over 16oz. of Coca-Cola in a single container.
Wonder who will be handling the paperwork on this?
Bloomberg might be 100% right about the impact of sugary drinks on our health... but he is 100% wrong to  arm his opinion with the force of law and intrude on our personal liberty of choice.  The road to hell is paved with good intentions.... and it turns into a slippery slope where one limitation leads to another until our liberty is eroded..... that's why the left tends to slide to oppression and subjugation.
It's sad to see a fat kid with a Twinky and a 16oz Big Gulp.   But it's his parents responsibility to teach him to make the right choice.... not the government's.   And yes, some dipshit parents will allow their kids to make the stupid choices.  Once again, this is the unsavory price of liberty that must be absorbed to protect our overall freedom.
