I Thought He Was Talking About Trans Fats
What an oddly shaped Hersey's Bar


Crazy Nancy gives us another example of the Defeatocrats making life just a little more expensive for us all. Here's some of the article from CNSNews.com;
Pelosi’s Health Care Bill Would Regulate Snack Machines at Estimated Cost of $56Million the First Year

(CNSNews.com) – The House health-care reform plan unveiled last week by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would do more than regulate insurance companies – it would even regulate vending machines.

The bill, which is posted online, would require that vending machine operators either create new machines that allow the customer to view nutrition facts or post nutritional information for each product near “each article of food or the selection button.”

The regulation could wind up costing vendors millions of dollars to make the changes, according to industry estimates
If you think for a moment that the Snack Food Vending Machine Industry is going to suck-up this rise in costs, you're out of your mind. As I've pointed out before,corporations don't really pay taxes or whatever weird money-making-scheme the government dreams up. The cost gets passed on to you and me.

I still get a chuckle out of those maroons who scream the Socialist mantra of "TAX THE RICH!" Be it diapers, screwdrivers or nuclear warheads... industry passes the cost onto the consumers.

And I don't want anyone thinking I'm anti-Industry. Hell, it's industry that creates jobs, not the government.

I just want the government to keep their grubby hands off my Ho-Hos. After all, they can have my trans fats when they pry them loose from my cold, dead hands.

The government will regulate Ho-Hos because "fat is bad for you!" but allow the rampant murder of unborn babies.

Riiiiiight...

Which means that either the costs of vending machines would be so high or the regulations too expensive that vending machine companies will just go out of business.

Which is what I think is Pelosi's goal.

Enjoy eating tofu and raw celery, folks.

I think that in a little less than one year Pelosi, Reid, and Obama have proven that they are a bigger threat to our well being than Iran, North Korea, Al Qaeda, Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba, et al. combined.

Welcome to the era which De Tocqueville, Brownson, Hayek, Kirk, and numerous others foresaw decades ago. A soft despotism. The humanitarian state. In our case this soft despotism has the added tyranny of being atheistic.

I miss Chuck (Heston). He too was a Man for All Seasons.

The only professionally acted play I ever saw starred Heston. It was like meeting him one on one, even though I was up in the balcony among many others. His ability to communicate was beyond astonishing ... none on the stage with him even compared, even hinted at what great acting is capable of.

The next gun I buy (when I win the lotto) will be one of those ... wait, I mean the type John Wayne used to brandish ... with the lever, and in something like .45-70 government.
