now we need a Salt Party?

Most monkeys know that too much salt is bad juju. At least where one’s health is concerned. Assuming one cares about one’s health, which is debatable in the these seriously wacky times. In the Land of the Free, it’s only natural that some erudite members of the species Homo erectus asphaltus choose to avoid overindulging in sodium as a general rule.

And then there’s the increasing trend by our omniscient government to ensure that it’s wards not only know about the evils of salt overdose, but are also prevented from consuming too much salt, by force if necessary. Hello, New York!

“No owner or operator of a restaurant in this state shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food for consumption by customers of such restaurant, including food prepared to be consumed on the premises of such restaurant or off of such premises,” reads a recent bill introduced in the “New York Legislature that, if passed, would ban the use of salt in restaurant cooking.”

I wish I could make this stuff up. But I can’t.

Soon we’ll be looking at bills that would make any risky behavior verboten. No more multiple orgasms; no more tequila shooters; no more green chili cheeseburgers; no more obnoxiously loud rock muzak; no more endless hours surfing the InterNut.

The possibilities are endless and may soon affect a neighborhood near you.

George Orwell, where are you?
