Bill O'Reilly episode 9 February 2011 - Michelle Obama's anti-obesity drive

Michelle Obama says restaurant portions should be smaller and the children's menu should have healthy food on it. There's an obvious libertarian argument against this.

John Stossel, a Fox anchor is in studio and he reckons that restaurants know their customers a lot better than Michelle Obama does. I hate agreeing with people on Fox but I am totally with them here. You cannot dictate what restaurants can and cannot serve.

I have written about this before.

Now here we go... O'Reilly reckons that the government is telling us what to do like getting us to quit smoking by raising the taxes on the product. Should the government raise taxes on fast food to stop poor people eating? How far should the government go? (He doesn't say).

O'Reilly says that Michelle Obama's stance is noble and he likes the thought but she should stay out of his all-you-can-eat rib buffet.

They haven't mentioned that the USA is one of the world's fattest nations.

Not the most interesting O'Reilly segment, but whatever. Up next: ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION! Yay - some good action here.
