Now that the health fascists have a firm grip on the smokers, it is time to turn to the drinkers. It is just a matter of time before the WHO and UN swoop in with a set of international standards for alcohol control.
Of course, the CBC reports:
Canadian alcohol bottles may soon sport warning labels similar to those on cigarette packages, if a Liberal MP has his way.The presence of a warning label on a bottle of wine is going to prevent drunk driving, just like making a special point of quoting french speaking people is going to prevent bigotry? Fine then! We can mandate warning labels for all guns and eliminate murder by firearms once and for all! Let us attach a warning label to everything under the sun, complete with a list of instructions on how to lead your life according to government health and safety standards. To hell with the cost!
The beverage industry opposes the idea, however, complaining that it would cost $15 million to $20 million each year to implement the plan.Which means the price of alcohol would go up, which means the government and its officials would stand to gain even more unlawful money to further entrench their crooked monopoly.
Hat tip: Back of Government
