To those anti-government posters on this forum, I say this: If there’s one thing I definitely want the government to do, it’s to protect the safety of food for my family and me. I sure can’t do much to make sure the food is safe, and it seems I can’t trust the big meat companies to do it. That’s when government comes in handy. Here in Chicago, the city shut down a restaurant last week because inspectors found rats in the kitchen. Would you anti-government types prefer that places like that stay in business?
