It’s National Donut Day

Today is National Donut Day and the libertarians at the Competitive Enterprise Institute want you to gorge yourself because freedom. Seriously.

Overindulge. Have two donuts today: one for yourself, and one for your freedom. Some government officials and their academic advocates believe that certain nutrients like fat, sugar, or salt are “toxic” and want to ban, tax, or shame people into eliminating them from their diet. In CEI’s view, it’s one thing for these people to offer us advice, but their mandates and taxes cross the line. Our lives and lifestyles belong to us, and National Donut Day is the perfect opportunity for demonstrating what our founders deemed the pursuit of happiness.

Somehow they failed to attack the First Lady in their press release. This time.
