In case you’re keeping track (and you’re probably not), there’s a new danger which government “needs” to protect us from: salt. Yes, that little white stuff that you find, well, everywhere. According to Those Who Know Better Than You, it’s killing you and should be regulated, banned, and controlled by government — much like marijuana. And word is that the government is actually considering punishing, jailing, and killing people who sell too much salt — because it’s “dangerous.”

I am still amazed at people who support such things. Why do they honestly hate freedom so much? Why do they believe that only they are smart enough to tell everyone else what to do? Why do they think that they should use the power of government to punish, and if needed, kill people in other to enforce what they, personally, believe everyone else should do? How incredibly selfish and self-centered these people must be to believe that they should determine everything for everyone. People who support actions like this are honestly evil and anti-freedom, even if they don’t believe so themselves.

But hey, as long as we’re banning things that are “bad” for you, next on the list will be working at night. You see, that apparently now causes cancer. Therefore, if we should use government to punish people who sell and eat salt because it’s bad, then we obviously NEED to use government to shut down any business that stays open or allows people to work at night. Perhaps we can have government patrols that look for lights on at night and they can shoot and arrest anyone who dares to work at night — for their own good, of course.

Oh, how I yearn for freedom.

A very accurate cartoon showing how government creates more problems when they claim to solve others:

Government Support Of…

Quick question — how is it that a library that’s paid for with my taxpayer government cash is somehow not responsible and those pictures are NOT an endorsement by government — but an employee of the government, for example, a school teacher, who simply carries a Bible with them, or says, “Merry Christmas” IS a complete and total representative of all government everywhere and must be banned?

Cyberbullies?

How do you know you’re spending too much time on the computer? When you’re responding to “cyber-bullies” AND trying to get government to pass laws to punish those who are “bullies.” Here’s a clue, lawmakers: you don’t have a clue. Any law passed regarding “cyber bullies” is going to be 100% worthless. You don’t have the jurisdiction! And yes, I’m aware this will just be another reason the controlling leftists will demand a one world government.

But hey, look at the data used in this report:

As many as one in three U.S. children have been ridiculed or threatened through computer messages, according to one estimate of the emerging problem of cyberbullying.

Another new study found the problem is less common, with one in 10 kids reporting online harassment.

Oh, in other words, we have no idea how many are “reporting” this stuff. But wait, where did the data come from?

Wolak’s study was a telephone survey of 1,500 Internet users, ages 10 to 17.

Um, what? How many 10-year old phone numbers does this guy have access to? Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t know a whole lot of 10-year olds who have their own phones. But well, he’s a government researcher, so he must be right. Oh, but how does this compare to other places?

The schoolyard continues to be a source of in-person bullying: Studies indicate roughly 17 percent of early adolescents say they are victims of recurring verbal aggression or physical harassment.

So let me make sure I understand this — when the government forces children to gather in a place where they do not want to be, under penalty of prison, and where the children are directly supervised at all moments by government, SEVENTEEN percent are victims of bullies. But this very same government things that they can pass a law regarding the internet — a place where government has no control and zero possibility of supervision — and they think they can reduce a number that may already only be at TEN percent?

This is yet another example that shows how utterly and clueless government bureaucrats and legislators can be. They honestly have no idea what they’re doing. Government is not the solution to ANY problem — they are only capable of creating MORE problems. Stop turning to government for a solution — they don’t have ANY.

Congress in Summer

Seems pretty accurate to me. Not that it’s a bad thing!

Federal Egg Nog

Now I imagine most of my readers who are familiar with a kitchen know how to make that wonderful holiday concoction, Eggnog. For those who don’t understand, you might take a guess at the ingredients. Go ahead, think about it a minute, see if you can think of any one ingredient in EGGnog. I’ll wait.

Hum de dum.

Did you think of one yet? Would you be shocked if I said that something called EGGnog actually has EGGS in it? The federal government thinks that you’re not smart enough to make that guess. Seriously. They are spending your tax money to protect you from accidentally drinking eggnog without knowing it has EGGS in it. Really. The worthless bureaucrats at the FDA nearly shut down a family farm because he dared to sell Eggnog without a WARNING label that the product contains eggs. They actually claimed they wanted to

protect people with egg allergies who don’t know there’s egg in eggnog.

Yes, this is your tax dollars at work. This is the government that you have to pay such huge taxes to support. And yes, the bureaucrats saying such things actually believe they’re “just doing their job” and helping people. I think they’re miserable S.O.B.s myself.

But don’t go check your egg cartons — the ones in my fridge don’t have any warning labels that they contain eggs, either. Try and explain to me again that government serves any good purpose today.

While this article may look like satire, it’s not. And that should scare you. Here’s a portion of it:

children were herded into a Price George County courthouse being guarded by armed personnel with attack dogs. Inside, the children were forcibly vaccinated, many against their will, under orders from the State Attorney General

and this

Health authorities there have already announced their intent to essentially kidnap parents and throw them in jail, removing them from their children for up to thirty days if they continue to refuse to have their children vaccinated. This will all be conducted at gunpoint, with armed personnel and attack dogs at the ready, making sure nobody steps out of line, and suppressing any attempt at public dissent against the Orwellian vaccination policies.

Does this bother anyone at all? Go read the whole article — there isn’t even a law that requires vaccinations! In other words, the government is just doing whatever it wants, completely unchecked, simply because they have more guns. Nope, not Germany — America today.
