Kill the Teamaker

Friday, October 26, 2007 2:54 Comments Off

The Department of Agriculture is going after this guy. Hid crime? He makes tea in his house and sells it. The real problem is that it’s a water-sugar-yeast-tea combo, and since it is not made in a commercial kitchen, it’s “outside of regulatory oversight.” His drinks are very popular with cutomers, but they don’t have [...]

Menu Nazis

Thursday, October 25, 2007 19:33 Comments Off

I blogged about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto of the menu Nazis in California. A judge in NYC struck down a similar coup last month, however, the New York, anti-private property bureaucrats and special interest boobs are not giving up. In another great moment of stupidity, we have this: The idea, Frieden said, is to make people [...]

Blame the Victim, not the Totalitarian State

A Ron DeLong from Mesa, AZ says forget about compaining about airline/airport totalitarianism and inconvenience. Ron, a perfect, little poster child for passivity and obedience to the rules of the State, says this: The The biggest [...]

Schwarzenegger Earns a “Giant, Greasy Stain”

Wednesday, October 24, 2007 14:13 Comments Off

Arnold has vetoed a Senate Bill that would force California fast food restaurants to put nutrition information on their menu boards so that hapless, unaccountable morons can “avoid” obesity. Someone actually said this and meant it: The menu labeling bill could have helped Californians avoid obesity, heart disease, and many other deadly diet-related diseases… So [...]

This study, undertaken by government and [...]
