Politically-Correct Food Keeps Poisoning Its Customers

by Roberto A Ferdman and Abha Bhattarai. Chipotle became the darling of the fast-food world by attracting millennials, blue-collar workers and even whole families with its promise of high-quality, sustainably sourced Mexican-inspired cuisine. But a series of food poisonings and other challenges are threatening its reputation and underscoring the  ... MORE

Katherine Mangu-Ward: Plastic Bags Are Good

Another thing prohibitionists get wrong.  Here is a list of things that are thicker than a typical plastic grocery bag: A strand of hair. A coat of paint. A human cornea. High-density polyethylene is a miracle of materials science. Despite weighing less than 5 grams, one bag can hold 17 pounds, well over 1,000 times its own weight. At about a penny ...

John Stossel - The War On Uber

Hillary attacks Uber to protect taxi cartels.    Hillary Clinton gave a speech warning that the new "sharing economy" of businesses such as the ride-hailing company Uber is "raising hard questions about workplace protections."

Ronald Bailey: Chipotle Treats Customers Like Idiots

Trying to profit from bogus GMO fears.   In April, the high-class Mexican food chain Chipotle announced that it was going GMO-free. That is, the company would no longer use ingredients derived from modern biotech crops. Chipotle says it sells "food with integrity."

George Will: The 'Progressive' Burger Company

Social responsibility is a poor substitute for taste.  In January, McDonald’s said kale would never replace lettuce on its burgers. In May, however, it said it will test kale in a breakfast meal. Kale might or might not cause construction workers to turn at 6 a.m. into McDonald’s. McDonald’s also says its milk will soon be without artificial     ... MORE

John Stossel: A Right To Discriminate

Bake me a cake, or go to jail!   Sadly, that is the new message from "inclusive" America. If you don't want to cater, photograph, preside over, sell pizza at, sell flowers to or otherwise participate in a gay wedding, you will be punished. If you don't want your business to pay for a kind of birth control that you consider murder, you will pay fines until your  ... MORE

Jacob Hornberger: Should There Be A Federal Tipping Law?

Voluntarily doing the right thing. Suppose the Franklin Roosevelt administration had enacted a law in the 1930s that required every restaurant customer in America to pay a 15 percent tip to waiters. The argument in favor of such a law would have been twofold: to help the poor and to stimulate the economy by getting more money  ... MORE
