NO SALT FOR YOU!
This story has me really bent. I adore salt. I put in on almost everything, even though almost every food is chock full of it. And now some jackass politician wants to take it away because he thinks its use is harmful to me? Screw you, pal!
MYFOXNY.COM – Some New York City chefs and restaurant owners are taking aim at a bill introduced in the New York Legislature that, if passed, would ban the use of salt in restaurant cooking.
“No owner or operator of a restaurant in this state shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food for consumption by customers of such restaurant, including food prepared to be consumed on the premises of such restaurant or off of such premises,” the bill, A. 10129, states in part.
The legislation, which Assemblyman Felix Ortiz , D-Brooklyn, introduced on March 5, would fine restaurants $1,000 for each violation.
Exactly how is one to bake ANY kind of bread, roll, pie crust, or cake without salt? And I guess if restaurants can’t serve bread that takes care of the problem of ever offering butter, too.
The next thing you know, they’re banning cooking oil, sugar, and flour. Where does it end?
Ya know, I probably wouldn’t attend a Tea Party, and I most likely wouldn’t participate in a mass demonstration, but if they take away my salt, I will start the Second American Revolution myself! This I vow.
