Civil Disobedience on a Plate

Wednesday, July 27, 2011 21:00 1 Comment

These stories circulating about culinary raves are becoming more prevalent. In fact, the New York Times did a good story back in April.

FDA: You Must Not Dissent From the Medical Establishment

Monday, July 25, 2011 22:55 1 Comment

The Medical Establishment is a malignant arm of the state – omnipotent, enabled by decrees, backed by propaganda, and fed by the agencies that subsist via the looting of peaceful Americans. This is an amazing, little story on I Programmer: “FDA to Scrutinize Medical Mobile Apps.” The United States Government and its terrorist arm, the [...]

Monday, July 25, 2011 20:41 No Comments

My favorite libertarian farmer, Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms, was gracious enough to have his publisher send me an advance review copy of his new book that will be released on October 10th.

On the raw milk front, has some interesting survey results on comparative raw milk regulations on a state-by-state basis. To summarize, thirty states allow consumers to transact with raw milk producers while twenty states prohibit that act of freedom.

The States That Rob You the Most (and the Least)

Sunday, July 24, 2011 16:05 No Comments

This article on Yahoo Finance is hardly a surprise, but it is worth a mention here. The article lists the ten states with the highest tax burdens and the ten states with the lowest tax burdens. The highest tax states are predictable – if you follow this stuff at all, you’ll get at least 7 [...]

Flying Dogs, Raging Bitches, and Banned Beer

Once upon a time, in the fall of 2009, the Flying Dog Brewery applied for a license to sell its Raging Bitch craft beer, in the state of Michigan. The Michigan Liquor Control Commission, instead, decided to forbid the sale of the beer by denying the application because the label was “detrimental to the public [...]

Come to find out that prior to that the FDA had gone after Diamond Foods for its claims that its walnuts are good for overall health. Here is the full letter sent [...]
