David Davenport: California Chips Away at Individual Freedom

California has decided sodas are the new tobacco, with five bills introduced in the legislature to limit sales. If they pass, you won’t be able to buy sodas larger than 16 ounces, you won’t find them in check-out lines, and there will be extra fees.

New York introduced a bill banning large sodas and it was blocked by a judge. While it was in effect the data showed people actually bought more sodas. And there are very different interpretations of the effects of a soda tax.

But the real issue is individual freedom. Isn’t drinking a soda your decision, not the government’s? If they are dangerous to health, isn’t education the answer, not regulation?

The nanny state keeps regulating us more and more at the cost of individual freedom. What’s next: banning meat and dairy products in school lunches? Oops, that bill has been introduced in California also.

Albert Mohler: Don’t Say You Were Not Warned


The sexual revolution is marching onward—this time in California’s new curricular framework for public education, as they draft a new curriculum for the public schools.

I downloaded all 1,000 pages—and I can simply say, there’s a lot to be concerned about here.

Just consider the guidelines on gender for 3rd graders: Gender is described as “boy, girl, both, neither, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, gender fluid, gender neutral, transgender, agender, neutrois, bigender, third gender, two spirit ….” and so it goes.

We also have lesson plans on reproductive organs and the argument that they do not necessarily correspond to male and female.

You can imagine where this jumps when you’re talking about high school students.

One more dimension I should note, briefly: Parents, in the document, are clearly considered more likely to be the problem than the solution.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.
