I have a difficult time with the fact that our government has their hand in anything these days let alone, what we eat! The city of Chicago has no right to ban foie gras. Different cultures, religions, households and communities eat different things. Does this mean that we will ban peanut sauce for Thai food or red wine for communion? Last time I checked, I was the one who made the decision on what I was going to eat for dinner. If I wanted to eat some duck liver then that is what I would do! I am sorry but no one has the right to tell anyone what they can and cannot eat. As Brie mentioned, this would be just the beginning of a whole list of free acts the government would take away from us if this sort of action is allowed to go on. It is time for society to stand up for what they feel is right and to say 'NO' when it comes to the government making decisions for us.
