The Liberal mindset, it’s all about Control!
It all began, reports the Wall Street Journal, with “the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama and her ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign” against childhood obesity. That law imposed strict new nutrition standards on schools participating in federal school meals programs
“The law also required the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to set standards for all food and beverages sold during the school day, which includes vending machines, snack carts and daytime fundraisers,”
As of July 1, these requirements are also enforceable on fundraisers and other school-day activities, with states having the power to assess fines on noncompliant schools. That means, for example, that “buttery, salty popcorn” is out, “Kernels sold on site during the day must contain no more than 230 milligrams of sodium per serving until 2016, when it drops even lower. No more than 35% of calories in an item can come from total fat.” Needless to say, nearly all baked goods and candies fail to meet the standards and thus will be banned; some schools have already prohibited the sale of boxes of Girl Scout cookies. And because homemade food doesn’t come with nutritional labeling, “the result of the new requirements may be more processed-food products,”
Why should the Government not control the calories you put into your body, after all your weight has to do with your health, and as Obama care uses tax dollars to pay for health care it is now a government responsibility to ensure proper use of tax dollars.
We must realize that parents are too stupid and lazy to properly monitor their child’s dietary intake, they often cannot control their own, Look at the need of New York city to limit the size of drinks and snacks for adults, just to force them to limit their salt and sugar intake.
We must remember it is not just for the kids, its about control.
Rep. Mike Honda, (D-CA) submitted bill, H.R. 5344, The Responsible Body Armor Possession Act, it would place a ban on what it terms ‘enhanced body armor.’ This type of armor as referenced in the bill’s language would include any wearable armor including helmets or shields that offer a ballistic protection of Type III or above as determined using National Institute of Justice Standard–0101.06. The only exceptions to the prohibition would be for law enforcement, military and government agencies.
Type III and higher body armor is commonly available both new and used throughout the country. Recently companies such as Bullet Blocker have even made efforts to produce school safety equipment such as bullet proof backpacks, whiteboards and children’s-sized nylon jackets up to NIJ Type III ratings aimed to protect youngsters from active shooters. They also sell suit jackets for businessmen that are type 3 protection, the latest in fashion on the streets of Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, and New York city for the active, on the go CEO. They also provide bullet proof cases for iPads, notebook computers and full leangth briefcase shields that can be quickly opened and used as a protective cover. All designed for quick protection of individuals in an active shooter situation.
But the Liberals do not want to protect you, they want to control you.
See it is all about manipulation, making people behave in a certain way. You cannot control their thoughts yet, but you can control their actions; maybe… This was a thought from back in the 1970’s Equal Opportunity programs, it does not matter if you are a bigot, you just cannot act like one. Actions could be punished, thoughts could not. Speaking is an action, so it must be controlled and regulated; now words become criminal and punishable.
Race baiting became profitable, a legalized form of extortion, so profitable it created a whole new industry and Government regulatory agencies to enforce it.
Its all about control.
This leads us to Foreign policy. The same mindset that criminalizes Girl Scout cookies, bans device that actually protects honest citizens, and justifies race baiting for fun and profit, is now the same mindset that controls our foreign policy decisions. Immature, asinine and reckless decisions based on appearances and wishful moronic thinking. Not reality.
Many wonder why we have such problems in the world. It is because we do not have responsible adults leading this country, we have “a race of wannabe Masterful Overlords”; a group of professional Politicians who only care about one thing; Control.
What do Cupcakes have to do with Foreign policy?
Its all about control.
Just my thoughts for today.
