NJ Legislature Focuses Like A Laser Baby

Wait, I guess “laser baby” is probably something banned by the Geneva Convention. Anyhow, those Super Duper folks we have representing us down in Trenton really are focused in on The Big Mondo Important Issue facing New Jersey right now, yessirree indeedy.

So whilst Corzine and his Bestest Buds have got New Jersey’s budget exploding faster than a jihadi’s waistline our Leading Lights in the State Senate know that the most important issue of the day is our waistline

New Jersey’s most popular fast-food chains would have to print new menus disclosing the calorie count for all of their edible items under a bill opposed by restaurants owners but approved by a Senate committee today.

Following the lead of New York City, Philadelphia and four other states, New Jersey would require restaurants with 20 or more locations to include calorie counts for all food and beverages on printed menus, menu boards and drive-through window signs, according to the bill. A registered dietitian would have to attest that the calorie counts are accurate.

Here is government ‘job creation’ in it’s true glory: they create a new bureaucracy of Menu Police, all state employees naturally, while creating additional costs for private business owners who then will have to either raise prices to the consumer or fire people.

We need to clean house at all levels of government, folks.

    You’re hungry, down to your last five bucks and in McDonald’s. There, standing next to the calorie chart is a Hudson County political hack eyeing you up and down, deciding if you’re too fat for that quarter-pounder.

    Welcome to Jersey, land of the free-range food Nazi.

    You guys can’t even pump your own gas, and you think this is a surprise?

  3. Gary from Jersey says:

    John, pumping gas puts Pakistanis and Indians to work. Besides, do you know what that does to a pair of Manolo’s? Horror, I tell you, horror.
