In New York, the residents at a senior center have been receiving free doughnuts and other baked goods for years. The sweets are donated by bakeries and other shops that have leftovers that are not quite fresh enough to sell. The seniors devour the sweets. But the city council has decided that these sweets are no good for the seniors. It just passed a law forbidding free day-old sweets for the senior center.

"We want our seniors to live as long as possible, and these sweets can only contribute to obesity. With obesity come high blood pressure, circulation problems, and diabetes. So we are doing this for their own good," said Karl Rove, a city council member.

The senior citizens are having none of this. They immediately called Rove and other council members to protest this ban. "Who are these people to tell us what to eat?" asked Doug Fairbanks, a resident at the center. "I'll bet every one of them has a doughnut several times a week. Where do they get this attitude? They act like they are our parents.

"Instead, they are elected officials who are supposed to do the will of the people. And there isn't one person in this senior center who has complained about the free doughnuts. If they're concerned about seniors, are they going to prohibit all the seniors in the whole town from eating doughnuts? They can't just pick on us if they're interested in the health of all seniors.

"People get a little bit of power and it goes straight to their heads. We are starting a petition to recall all the council members who voted for this law."

Không bánh rán cho người già

Ở New York, những người già của trung tâm dưỡng lão bao năm qua nhận được bánh rán và các loại bánh ngọt khác miễn phí. Đồ ngọt được cung cấp bởi các hiệu bánh, loại không được mới để bán. Người già ăn bánh kẹo. Nhưng hội đồng thành phố đã quyết định những bánh kẹo này không tốt cho người già. Họ vừa thông qua luật cấm ngày tặng bánh cũ miễn phí cho trung tâm dưỡng lão.

" Chúng tôi muốn người già của chúng ta sống càng lâu càng tốt, và bánh kẹo này thì chỉ làm béo phì. Với béo phì, huyết áp cao, vấn đề tuần hoàn và bệnh tiểu đường. Như vậy chúng tôi làm như thế là tốt cho họ," Karl Rove, một thành viên hội đồng thành phố nói.

Những người già không được gì cả. Họ lập tức gọi Rove và những hội đồng thành viên để phản đối lệnh cấm này. "Những người bảo ban chúng tôi phải ăn gì là ai vậy?" Dough Fairbanks, một cư dân ở trung tâm hỏi. " Tôi cá là mỗi một người trong bọn họ ăn bánh rán vài lần trong tuần. Ở đâu mà họ có cái thái độ đó? Họ làm như họ là cha mẹ của chúng ta.

"Thay vì, họ được bầu cử chính thức, người lẽ ra phải làm những điều tốt cho con người. Và không có một người nào trong trung tâm dưỡng lão này than phiền về bánh rán miễn phí. Nếu họ quan tâm đến người già, liệu họ có cấm tất cả người già trong thành phố ăn bánh rán không? Họ không thể chỉ nhắm vào chúng ta nếu họ quan tâm đến sức khoẻ của tất cả người già.

"Người ta có một chút quyền lực là tự cao. Chúng tôi đang bắt đầu một kiến nghị để bãi miễn cho tất cả các thành viên hội đồng đã bỏ phiếu cho luật này."

Những người cao tuổi trong một trung tâm dưỡng lão tại New York đã nhận bánh rán và các loại bánh ngọt miễn phí trong nhiều năm nay. Các loại bánh ngọt còn thừa không còn ngon lành để bán đã được các tiệm bánh và cửa hàng gởi tặng. Các cụ già ăn ngấu nghiến các loại bánh ngọt. Nhưng hội đồng thành phố đã quyết định đồ ngọt không tốt cho người cao tuổi. Hội đồng đã thông qua một điều luật cấm ngày tặng miễn phí các loại đồ ngọt cũ cho trung tâm dưỡng lão.

"Chúng tôi muốn các cụ sống càng lâu càng tốt, và các loại bánh ngọt này chỉ có thể làm cho béo phì. Béo phì dẫn đến cao huyết áp, các vấn đề về tuần hoàn máu, và tiểu đường. Cho nên chúng tôi làm việc này vì muốn tốt cho các cụ thôi." Theo lời Karl Rove, uỷ viên của Hội đồng thành phố.

Các công dân cao tuổi không còn được nhận những thứ đó nữa. Họ lập tức gọi điện cho Rove và các uỷ viện hội đồng khác để phản đối lệnh cấm này. "Ai là những người bảo chúng tôi phải ăn thứ gì?" Doug Fairbanks, một cư dân ở trung tâm hỏi. "Tôi dám chắc là mỗi người trong bọn họ đều ăn bánh rán một vài lần trong tuần. Họ lấy ở đâu ra thái độ như thế chứ? Họ làm giống như họ là cha mẹ của chúng tôi vậy."

"Thay vì thế, họ là những cán bộ được bầu ra để thực hiện nguyện vọng của người dân. Và không có người nào trong trung tâm dưỡng lão đã phàn nàn vể bánh rán miễn phí cả. Nếu họ lo lắng cho người già, họ có cấm tất cả người cao tuổi trong toàn thành phố không được ăn bánh rán không? Họ không thể chế giễu chúng tôi nếu họ quan tâm đến sức khoẻ của người cao tuổi."

"Con người ta mới có được một tý quyền lực và quyền lực đã làm cho họ tự cao, tự đại." Chúng tôi đang bắt đầu làm một đơn đề nghị bãi miễn tất cả các uỷ viên hội đồng đã bỏ phiếu cho điều luật này."
