Government doesn’t need to be so involved in our lives
Wal-Mart announced this week that they would lower the cost of fresh fruits and vegetables, thusly providing food that is healthier at an affordable price.
Wal-Mart is the biggest grocery store chain in the country and it is inevitable that competitors will follow suit to keep up with the market.
Governments at various levels have made moves to outlaw trans-fats, sodas, and other “junk” food and still America’s obesity rate climbs.
Wal-Mart’s decision will show that instead of government involvement, but the power of the free market is the way for change in our way of life.
I can only hope that Washington D.C. and Olympia are listening and realize that less of their involvement in our lives is better for us.
It was indeed about politics
Since that unfortunate day in Tucson, it has been nice to see many people offer various opinions on why it happened. In no way am I blaming Sarah Palin or the Tea-Party like so many individuals have been but on the other hand I believe it had to do with politics.
Jared Loughner attempted unsuccessfully to assassinate a politician.
I am by far no rocket scientist but that sure seems to me that it makes it all about politics.
