I did find one customer who had noticed the calorie labels: Dick Nigon of Sterling, Va. He and his wife, Lea, had stopped by McDonald’s after seeing an exhibit at the Renwick Gallery. Dick had ordered for the couple, noticed the calorie labels and liked them.
“I like that you have the information before you order,” he told me, when I asked about the labels. “It’s better than some kind of government health mandate in Obamacare.”
I told him that the calorie labels were, in fact, a government health mandate in Obamacare.
“Well that changes things a bit,” he responded. “I thought this was more of a voluntary sort of thing. Now I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.”
He and his wife talked it over a bit — she eating her grilled chicken sandwich, him eating a Big Mac — and didn’t come to much of a conclusion about whether this was a good idea.
“The government does do certain things to make us healthy,” Dick said. “But you have to draw the line somewhere.” 1
- Well, yeah! Not to go on a rant (because Obama has pissed me off on a number of issues), but for pity’s sake, people! One minute you like the idea, the next -after it’s associated with Obama – you belive it to be e-vil? And these are always the same folk who claim
Obama being a niggerracism has nothing to do with it. I swear there are days I wish Obama would announce he was against people cleaning loaded weapons… ↩
