FOTM has been chronicling the increasing encroachments on our freedom with legislation like NDAA and Obamacare, as well as the petty tranny by local and state governments, such as:
- No goldfish for you
- No treehouse for you
- No veggie garden for you
- No lemon tree for you
- No baby bottle-milk for you
- No kid’s birthday party for you
- No bunny for you
Now add the restaurant chain Boston Market to the ever-growing list of patronizing mommy-knows-best Nazis.
Kim Bhasin reports for Business Insider, Aug. 22, 2012:
Boston Market has announced that it’s removing salt shakers from the tables of all of its 476 locations, but pepper shakers will remain, reports Bruce Horovitz at USA Today.
It’s part of an initiative to reduce the sodium content of its fare. The dismissal of the salt shakers is mostly an attempt to raise awareness about sodium intake, according to CEO George Michel.
You’ll still be able to get salt from the condiment station, though. It’s just a move to try to get patrons to taste their food before putting a pile of salt on it, according to Amanda L. Chan at the Huffington Post.
Boston Market wants to reduce sodium levels in rotisserie chicken, macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes by 20 percent in the next six months, and reduce levels by 15 percent menu-wide by the end of 2014.
It’s also testing reduced-sodium salads and sandwiches.
I expect that, any day now, the FDA will declare salt shakers to be Weapons of Mass Destruction. After all, we little people need the do-gooder elites to tell us what to and not to do, what to and what not to eat, when to and when not to go pee. As as that great “objective impartial TV journalist” Katie Couric, in a moment of unguarded candor, once said, American people are the “great unwashed”!
H/t FOTM’s beloved moxielouise!
