Restricting liberties

Remember when:

1. You could lick the cake batter out of the bottom of the bowl without the raw eggs giving you salmonella poisoning.

2. Cooking raw chicken didn’t require having a pile of Clorox wipes at hand.

3. Beef didn’t have to be cooked to shoe leather toughness to be safe.

4. Strawberries could be eaten without concern for lower gastrointestinal distress.

Well, folks, that was before big government was in your kitchen protecting our food supply. It’s so much better now.

Our small-government party has moved big government out of the kitchen, endangering our food supply, and into the bedroom, endangering our tradition of broadening civil liberties for citizens, not restricting them.

Janelle.....Your whole letter is rather silly...

Go ahead...lick the bottom of the bowl of eggy batter, wash that raw chicken using only soap & water on knives and cutting surfaces, have a rare steak, and chow down on the strawberries.......and while you're at it...have some of that unbridled unrestrained sex with whomever you choose...

...It's still a free country... :-)

Janelle's contribution is confusing. I think she is condemning Republican's assault on regulation, in this case food safety, and the assault on women's health issues. I think.
