"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

That'll Fix It!

Oh yeah!  In a country of 300,000,000 people, if 1,000 come down with salmonella poisoning, what do you do?  You spend even more money that you don't have to hire more bureaucrats to harass, intimidate, shuffle paper, point fingers, pretend to be important, do nothing about the real problem, keep you safer.

That's what this bureaucrat wants to do, and you can read about it here.  Yep. That's the answer. Everybody knows that the banking industry is in great shape because of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Name me a single person who doesn't love dealing with the DMV. Find any veteran who doesn't think that his medical care from the Feds is the cream of the crop. Who can deny that nearly every child in America who attends a government indoctrination center public school graduates with the knowledge and wisdom that commands a six figure salary, ever since Jimmy Carter created the Department of Education in 1979.

"A society gets the government that it deserves." I wish I could remember who first said that. Most people don't really know the history of this country. That's because you have to do a lot of study on it after you graduate from high school and college.  John Adams said that this Constitution would only work for a righteous and religious people [and by religion he ONLY meant Christianity] and that it was "wholly inadequate" for any other. DeToqueville said that when America ceased to be good, it would cease to be great.  In his pre-anointing speech, the dear leader said that "we are the ones that we have been waiting for."  The hubris in that statement is breathtaking. I think it is time that the 53% of the voters who brought us to this point looked around and quoted Pogo:  "We have met the enemy, and he is us."

Okay, I've vented enough for now, back to farming.
