Nanny state — actually State this time — California style

Cali gets this post for banning trans fats. Can’t wait to see the next “health” crusade from the government overlords who know better than you or me what to put into our bodies.

Really all the rampant statism all over the US these days is ridiculous. And un-American. Good job, Arnie.

From the link:

 California, a national trendsetter in all matters edible, became the first state to ban trans fats in restaurants when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill Friday to phase out their use.

Under the new law, trans fats, long linked to health problems, must be excised from restaurant products beginning in 2010, and from all retail baked goods by 2011. Packaged foods will be exempt.

New York City adopted a similar ban in 2006 — it became fully effective on July 1 — and Philadelphia, Stamford, Conn., and Montgomery County, Md., have done so as well.
