America's Dairyland Spirit of 1776

"When in the Course of human Events..."

"We hold these Truths to be self-evident..."

"The History of the present King of Great-Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations,..."

"He has refused his Assent to Laws..."

"He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone..."

He has dissed Cheese...


Chris Court's article in The Scotsman proves historically the real reason for Colonial America's hunger for independence.

[...] "The new regulations, being introduced this month by the television regulator Ofcom, will ban broadcasters from advertising cheese during children's TV programmes, or shows with a large number of child viewers."

"They are part of a government clampdown on junk- food TV adverts and aimed at reducing the exposure of children to food high in fat, salt and sugar."

"The ban comes in the wake of evidence that television commercials have an indirect influence on what children eat and are contributing to obesity in the young."

"The Food Standards Agency used a nutrient profiling model to distinguish junk food from healthy food."

"The model officially labelled cheese as more unhealthy than sugary cereals, full-fat crisps and cheeseburgers."
[...]

To arms! To arms! The Pantywaists are coming!

Obese kids are a growing epidemic! What happened to responsible parenting? Are people giving their kids the X-box and a bag of donuts instead of quality time?

Good question.
