There was discussion at a recent village board meeting that consideration might be given to encouraging restaurants to provide more vegeterian options on Mondays--hence the headline "Meatless Mondays". This nannystate imperative must be resisted. Remember carnivores have rights too.
Meatless Mondays like proposals to limit bullets in magazine clips is only a first step toward taking away our right to eat pork and beef which I believe are protected under one of the amendments to the US Constitution.
Meatless Mondays will be followed bt Tofu Tuesdays, Whole Wheat Wednesdays and Fiber Fridays.Before you know it we wll only be able to eat red meat on the odd numbered days of the month.
The other problem with Meatless Mondays is that it provides comedic grist for the mills of those who hate us for our liberal progressive views. Next thing you know GMA will be in front of some burger joint asking a patron about Meatless Monday. Everyone will be laughing at us. On second thought. So what? People do eat too much meat. That's why we are so fat and die of heartattacks. We should go for it. Can you put ketchup on tofu?
