Butter Wouldn’t Melt in His Mouth

And he’s making sure you don’t have a choice whether it will in yours.

Trans Fat Fight Claims Butter as a Victim
MATTHEW REICH is a baker dedicated to natural ingredients. He prefers butter in the cookies and brioche he turns out at Tom Cat Bakery in Long Island City, Queens, and like many professional cooks he applauds the public health effort to get artificial trans fat out of food.
But, in a twist of science, the law and what some call trans-fat hysteria, Mr. Reich and other wholesale bakers are being forced to substitute processed fats like palm oil and margarine for good old-fashioned butter because of the small amounts of natural trans fat butter contains.

NO BUTTER FOR YOU!!” ~ Mayor Bloomberg tells the seething masses.

Buttinski billionaire Bloomberg ~ who sees butter as the enemy ~ needs to look elsewhere for votes.
I can’t stand the guy already and here’s one more log on the fire.

  1. Which reminds me, did Ben and Jerry ever get that dioxin out of their ice death, er, ice cream?

    Yeah, Bloomberg is a billionarie socialist, the worst possible scenario imaginable; like Turner and Soros, he can afford to conduct his own “social engineering experiments”.
    Like this tired old planet hasn’t seen enough of that already.

    A few weeks ago, Time (I think) did an article about how he and Schwarzenegger were really getting things done and somewhat blaming Washington for moving to slowly. All I could think was “fine by me. I don’t have to deal with this crap.”
    Although it seems that those who act just to act are sometimes viewed more positively than the others. I recently read a defense of FDR that basically said, “who cares if he pursued a whole bunch of horrible policies… at least he was doing something.”

    Kind of explains why Coolidge’s reputation is pretty much boiled down to “taciturn” though there was more to him than that. Wilson did stuff, and FDR did stuff, and etc etc. Coolidge was restrained and sober-minded. It’s like how Robin Williams can make forty horrible movies (oh, wait, forty-one now) and be in five great ones, while others can be good in movie after movie and never be quite as recognized.

    …and I’m willing to bet that in another six months, there will be an outcry about how Palm Oil is destroying some pristine habitat, and then a bunch of charlatans (er, I mean, ENTREPENEURS) will come up with special environment-friendly Palm Oil which just happens to cost twice as much, and New York will rule that it has to be used instead of the old, monkey-and-bird-killing Palm Oil.
    Of course, the next step will be to ban all “unnecessary” sources of calories like pastry – in the name of fighting obesity – so it will be a moot point then. Until, of course, someone figures out how to make pastry dough out of carrots…

  6. Ricki, palm oil was one of the big, bad, evil saturated fats before being replaced in the going-go-kill-us-all club by trans fats.
