Toilet Control

A friend asked me what I felt about healthcare, government programs, etc. the other day as it relates to congress and congressional duties and obligations.

My answer was simple.

I EXPECT the government to fulfill its constitutional mandates as written by our forefathers. I EXPECT no more and no less than that.

The forefathers HATED the idea of a federal government.

It grows out of control and breeds corruption.

The constitution doesn’t say that the government should educate my kids, run my healthcare plan, and tell me how many gallons the toilet in my home can use when it works its magic. Where is the FREEDOM in that?

Socialism works like that but a Republic should not.

The toilet thing should have been the wake up call.


Federal Government and Internet

Of course, we all know that the government has been itching to grab more control of the internet with increased regulation, taxes, etc.

This article in The Registry should not surprise you.

The US government’s policy of leaving the Internet alone is over, according to Obama’s top official at the Department of Commerce.

Instead, an “Internet Policy 3.0” approach will see policy discussions between government agencies, foreign governments, and key Internet constituencies, according to Assistant Secretary Larry Strickling, with those discussions covering issues such as privacy, child protection, cybersecurity, copyright protection, and Internet governance.

The federal government octopus under the control of a liberal arm are trying to stretch their tentacles as far as possible. Healthcare, internet, the auto industry, and the banking system are just a few examples.

What do they want? Why, control of every aspect of your life is the goal. Silly.

Through a combination of government getting too big and the folks who vote and pay taxes becoming even dumber and more ignorant, the United States is now on the fast track to completely derailing this train riding down the constitution tracks.

It’s only a matter of time before the fed tells you what job you’ll have when you grow up, what house you can live in, and perhaps even who you can marry.

Sound familiar? It should. That is precisely what life was like in the USSR a few years ago.

Trouble in Lebanon, PA.

Specter is not having a good day in PA today.

Questioner: I don’t think it is just about health care. This is about the dismantling of this country. I don’t want this country turning into a socialized country. When are you going to turn this country back to what our founders created, back to the constitution?

Specter: There are a few people who didn’t stand up and applaud, but not too many. When you ask me to defend the constitution, that’s what I’ve been doing.

Questioner: The government hasn’t done anything right. We cannot afford this. Period. Keep the government out of it we’re doing just fine.
Specter: I will not vote for a plan that has a deficit.

The FDA May Oversee Tobacco


Former Presidents have dodged this issue because it was such a hot potato. At least, it was until now.

from Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration would gain new power to regulate cigarettes and other tobacco products under legislation passed by a U.S. House of Representatives panel on Wednesday.

The proposal, which passed 39 to 13 but must still win approval by the full House and Senate, would authorize the FDA to oversee the controversial, multibillion-dollar tobacco industry, including its advertisements and product designs. The FDA already oversees drugs, devices, most foods, cosmetics and animal drugs.

If the term “government intrusion” doesn’t hold any meaning for you now.

It never will.
