I Fear My Government

Many gun-banners are more than happy to blame gun manufacturers or those who sell firearms for the crimes committed by others. In their tiny little minds, they see no issues with blaming person X for the actions of person Y because they want to ban guns & know they cannot do it outright. So the plan to make manufacturing and selling so fraught with peril is a good thing for them. Suddenly, though, the very power they give to harass legitimate businesses ends us harassing legitimate...

Because every law on the books, when broken, is punishable by death. Force is the final answer to everything, like it or not. When you task the gov’t to uphold laws, you are in essence saying “And when someone refuses to do this, continue using force until they comply”. Hence, when someone is selling cigarettes that aren’t taxed, cops will put them in a choke hold and murder them force them to comply. Cops are told by society that they are the teeth behind the law. Then we continue to make more...

Want to make artisanal cheese? The FDA has something to say about that This part, though, is where the real problem lies While most cheesemakers have, perhaps, begrudgingly accepted most of what has been coming down the FSMA pike, including the requirement of HACCP plans and increased federal regulations and inspections, no one expected this giant regulation behemoth to virtually put a stop to innovation in the American artisanal cheese movement.

If not, Colin Noir has the video on his blog. What is depressing about this incident (besides someone losing their life over such a trifling thing as over-inebriation) is the responses I’m reading online. The comments at Mr. Noir’s blog are a good microcosm of what I’m talking about, as are some of the ones here. I’ve seen several...

Sebastian says goodbye to the TSA Nude-O-Scope, but I no more believe that than I believe Congress really cares about the debt ceiling. The TSA is now claiming the new software will only display a cookie-cutter image of a man or woman with highlighted areas  where there might be an object stored on the person. If you want, they’ll even show you the image. And that’s supposed to make everyone believe they’re safe from prying eyes. Bad news kiddos, it’s a lie. To scan your body to find...

Much like the tooth fairy, the Yeti, or ‘Tom Cruise is Straight’, the concept of government inspections increasing safety is a myth “The permit for the state-run swimming pool where a woman’s body went unnoticed for more than two days this week had expired six months ago.
