Well, no, not really.  But it seems we’re headed in that direction though.  In Raeford, North Carolina, a four-year-old had brought her lunch from home to school.  It just so happened government food police were on hand in the cafeteria inspecting the lunches of all the students.  When they spotted this little girl with a lunch from home, our tax dollars sprang into action. 

A state inspector ordered a full lunch for the little girl because her lunch from home did not contain a vegetable.  She was allowed to have both, but was too frightened to eat any of her lunch from home and ate only the chicken nuggets.

Let’s take a brief time-out here to compare the two.  The lunch from home had a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, potato chips, and apple juice.  The school lunch consisted of chicken nuggets, milk, a fruit, and vegetable.  Yes siree, that child’s mother sure doesn’t know what she’s doing for her own child.  She ought to know that the government always knows better.  Always.  If you don’t believe me, just ask them.

Now my question is this:  since when are chicken nuggets healthy?  If the government knows so much and can do such a superior job in feeding our children, then why do they not seem to know how unhealthy chicken nuggets are?  I saw a commenter on a Facebook post about this describe chicken nuggets as “deep fried floor sweepings”.  That is a fairly accurate description.  It’s made of chicken parts that can’t be used for anything else and it’s over-processed.  The unhealthy nature of processed foods is well documented.

The supposed justification was the home lunch did not contain a vegetable.  Why then was a complete lunch ordered?  The mother of the girl has apparently been fighting this battle for quite some time.  She has repeatedly told the school not to feed her child anything that does not come from the lunch she brings.  Yet, they keep doing it.  The mother has said that her child, being just four years old, does not like vegetables.  Her mother has also said that she feeds her child vegetables at home because the little girl will only eat them under close supervision.  Kinda normal for a four-year-old, but it still seems to tee off the government because she’s not eating the official, approved, calibrated, homogenized, certified government issue food.  After all, such rebellion could lead to anarchy.

And, did you notice something.  Whereas this little girl would have eaten all of her lunch – turkey, cheese, bread, banana, and apple juice – all of it went in the trash.  And all of the official, approved, calibrated, homogenized, certified government issue lunch, except for the chicken nuggets, all went in the trash.  So, before government intervention, child was eating food from most of the food groups.  After government intervention, one of the food groups.  Good job Big Brother!  This little girl will look back and thank you one day, I’m sure.

This man should have mounted his mailbox on the basketball post.  That way, it would have all belonged to the U.S. Postal Service by Federal law and there would not have been anything the DELAWARE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION could have done about it.  

Did you notice the lie in which the DelDot official was caught?  She plainly said he could keep it if he wanted it, but they hauled it off anyway telling this man he could come pick it up later.  And there are those that wonder why so many distrust government? 


Enough said.


Once again, another attack on our food supply by government. This time it’s the U. S. Department of Transportation.  Specifically, The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which is a part of USDOT,  wants to reclassify farm vehicles as commercial motor vehicles, and require anyone operating any type of farm equipment to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (SOURCE).  Farm vehicle operators could possibly even have to keep logs like truck drivers limiting the amount of time they spend operating the tractor or whatever which would include mandatory downtime.

Here is a report filed by KXXV-TV in Waco, Texas.
There are a few things to think about here.  One, this is more regulation by unelected government officials.  Such arbitrary regulation by government agencies bypasses the entire legislative process and therefore bypasses the will of We The People.  You notice that neither the FMCSA nor USDOT brought this before Congress which is by design.  Next, what is considered a farm vehicle could be extended to pick-up trucks and even ATV’s used by many farmers. 

 And what about garden tractors that are used part of the time for plowing and cultivating gardens?  As precedents have already been set in some localities, someone selling produce from their garden can be considered having a commercial farming operation.  As we all know, government regulations are never static, but always expand annually.  Quietly, without Congressional approval.  It’s not hard to see how far reaching this proposal could go.  Like the farmer in the video said, how is the driving test going to be administered? Drive the tractor to the Department of Public Safety?  Government getting crazier, again.

The next thing to consider is the authority granted to government under this proposal.  If enacted, the authorities would have the power to come onto private property to check to make sure that anyone driving a tractor, pick-up truck, ATV, lawn tractor, or any other vehicle being used for any type of food production had a CDL.  Imagine getting a ticket for driving a tractor on a privately owned farm for not having a CDL.

For what few family farms are left, this would prove to be the final nail in the coffin to drive them out of business entirely.  Requiring a CDL would keep other family members from operating farm machinery until they were 21 years old.  Eighteen, nineteen, and twenty year olds would be able to drive a car from coast-to-coast, but not a tractor on their dad’s farm.  The cost of hiring professional drivers would be prohibitive.  The large agricultural companies would pass on the cost to the consumer, meaning the cost of food would go up . . . again.

Where this threatens our food supply is the cost of implementation.  More family farms would be driven out of business reducing our domestic food production even more than over the past thirty-five years or so.  There has been a consistent pattern over the past few years of the government attempting to exert more and more control over the food supply, everything from classifying a garden as a commercial farming operation to outright raids on food co-ops and feeding the poor organizations.  

What I would like to hear from someone at the USDOT is the purpose of these new regulations – on paper that is.  We all know the real purpose.


Here is yet one more account of the TSA going out of control in the name of “national security.”  Now I am a believer in maintaining national security, and when it comes to our enemies, I am not too particular about how we do it.  They certainly are not particular about how the attack us.  But this is another one of those absurd instances showing a totally out of control government agency.  No one will be able to convince me this is an “isolated incident.”  There are too many documented, and I have posted here about several of them.  From what I have seen, it seems young American children and elderly Americans are being targeted.  Remember that such tactics have prevented no terrorist attack attempts whatsoever.

My question is why are there absolutely no accounts of any Muslims ever being patted down or detained like this?  If there are any such incidents, please post a link in my comment section.  I would like to see it.

Dying Woman Undergoes Additional TSA Security Screening, Says Family

Published June 26, 2011
An elderly woman in the late-stages of leukemia was forced to undergo 45 minutes of additional screenings last Saturday when she tried to board a flight out of Northwest Florida Regional Airport, her daughter told
Lena Reppert, 95, was to say her final goodbyes to her daughter before she made what would most likely be her last flight to her native Michigan. After eight years of battling leukemia, doctors say she doesn’t have much time to live.
“She said she wanted to be closer to her grave,” Jean Weber, her daughter, told “I knew it would probably be the last time I ever see her.”
But when Reppert made it to the check-in line, Transportation Security Association agents singled her out because she was in a wheelchair. Wheelchairs require other security measures to be employed since they don’t go through metal detectors.
“So they brought my mom to the side, and two agents just started patting her,” Reppert said. “Eventually they found something that appeared to be hard and they said could be a concealed weapon.”
She said two female agents wheeled her mom into a private room where they performed a more thorough inspection, and found that Reppert was wearing a Depend adult diaper.
“It was hard because the underwear was bunched up,” Weber said, adding that she was not in the room as her mother was patted.
After 45 minutes, the mother and daughter were given two options: either don’t fly, or lose the Depend. The women chose the latter.
“I ran with her to the bathroom and stripped her down,” Weber recalled. “I got back to the line and just started bawling.”
Weber said the emotional toll was too much. From perhaps seeing her mother for what could be the last time, to having to see her mother go through all the security measures, “I just cried and said, ‘Please can you let her through, she’s just so sick,” she said.
The TSA said in a statement to Fox News that at “no instance” would an officer ask a passenger to remove an adult diaper. The TSA would not disclose further information about this particular passenger, but said all protocols were followed.
“While every person and item must be screened before entering the secure boarding area, TSA works with passengers to resolve security alarms in a respectful and sensitive manner,” the statement read. “We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure.”
Reppert eventually made her flight by two minutes, her daughter said, but the departure was bitter sweet.
“It was tough to say goodbye after all of that,” Weber said. “But she’s at peace, and she’s a good Christian woman. They’ll be waiting for her up there in Heaven.”

Here is another example of big government out of control.  This story was first reported by ABC affiliate NEWS 10 in Sacramento, California.  As if the government’s raids on private food supplies were not enough, now the U. S. Department of Education is raiding homes over unpaid student loans.  Click  HERE to read the article.

After this went viral on the Internet, News 10 was finally able to get a little more information from the U. S. Department of SHUTZSTAFFEL, er, I mean, Education.  The U. S. Department of Education denied that it was due to a defaulted student loan.   Click HERE for the follow up report.

Government way out of control? You betcha.
