Has anyone else noticed the amount of coverage that all of the news media have given to these so-called 'tea party' 'protests?' Or the number of states whose legislatures have recently invoked the 10th Amendment to try to restrain the Federal government? Where were these idiots when dear George funded the Iraq and Afghanistan wars off the official budget books? Where were they when his administration was shredding the constitution? Oh, I know!! They were enjoying the Bush tax cuts that didn't reach more than a third of the way down the economic food chain. They were getting BILLIONS from the war to fuel their obscene profits. Their companies were getting 'onerous' regulations rescinded so they could make even more money. I am so sick of the so obvious news media bias that I am about to sign up for News Junkie Anonymous and kick my habit.
I found this little item in my morning trip through the blogosphere. I haven't shopped at a Hobby Lobby for a long time. But I may have to visit them again. I just wish the two stores in the area were closer.
Ari Levaux in the Memphis Flyer provides a good overview of the most controversial of the new food safety bills currently under consideration in Congress. He draws some of the same conclusions I have. They are a 'do something even if it is wrong' knee jerk reaction to a serious problem. As such, if passed, they will over regulate the portion of the food industry that is least to blame for the recent spate of food borne illnesses--small producers and local suppliers.
