Yuck! More From The Nanny State Collective

Resistance is futile! You will be assimilated! Er . . . uh, sorry, was channeling Star Trek there for a moment.

Seriously, if people aren't careful, they will be assimilated into the ridiculous nanny-state collective. This is not a firearms story, but once again illustrates how extreme things are getting.

From the UK:

"Toddlers who say "yuck" when given flavorful foreign food may be exhibiting racist behavior, a British government-sponsored organization says."

Or, they just might not like it! The way Japanese visitors to the U.S. generally cannot stand the truly American food -- peanut butter. Or the way many Europeans and Americans cannot stand the Australian spread, vegemite. Or the way President George H.W. Bush couldn't stand broccoli.

Its not racist, people! I am guessing that "Yuck" is an internationally known phrase that means the same thing on many continents. Used properly, it's like the esperanto of food commentary.

Anyway, if you can stand this nanny state argument out of the once great Britain, read it.
