Greed By No Other Name Than Taxes

Opinion By Bob L.
Dec. 27th 2013

Why is it now that they are worried about cigarette taxes, they are the ones who are trying to stamp out cigarettes and people smoking them for health reasons, they are the ones who are cutting their own throats for loss of their precious Taxes, no one else is trying to stop people from smoking other than two-faced people who want clean air when they go out on their booze and pot parties in bars, restaurants, and parks, but yet it is all right to pass a law to let people smoke pot, now what is the differences, they both pollute the clean air act, and bad for kids to be around as they want you to believe, because they both put out second-hand smoke, that is why they have smoking bans around the Country, SECOND-HAND SMOKE.

So after passing laws to raise taxes to get people to quite smoking, why are they so worried about the loss of tax that knew they would lose when they raised taxes on Tobacco products, that is what you call cutting your nose off to spite your face.

These Idiots have not learned yet that when you raise taxes, people find ways around to not pay them, instead of looking for a solution to the problem they just keep raising taxes and think that will solve all the problem, and eventually you are looking to file for Bankruptcy, because they got greedy and could not pay their debts, but yet they all tell the people to live with in your means and not spend more the you receive. (hypocrites never learn)

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – A federal program that let law enforcement trace cigarette packs from manufacturer to consumer would reduce interstate trafficking and boost the public health benefits of state cigarette tax policies, researchers say. Continue reading

Death With Dignity, And Death With Out Dignity

Comment By Bob L.
Nov. 30th 2013

Government and Special Interest Groups think they have the right to tell people how to live, the only person that has that right is that person themselves, but the Churches, Government, and Special Interest have gone to the point to say who can Die with Dignity and who can not, a good example of this is, a person who is being kept alive because it is in human to let them Die With Dignity.

Look at the other hand, now you have a baby who is not given that choice to live with dignity because the Government now wants to make the Taxpayer pay for abortions, not the people who want it done, and Seniors are being kept alive by the Taxpayer, and are being told they don’t know what is good for them, so you must suffer until you die, but why is a person being kept alive on life support instead of letting them die, but on the other hand a baby is not allowed to live.

When it comes down to it, why are the Taxpayers being held responsible to pay for Birth Control, and Abortion, keeping people alive when they are dying, and Killing Babies, should be the responsibility of the individual person to pay for it themselves, not the Taxpayers.

Government keeps a person alive until they have exhausted all their funds to a nursing home, and then does nothing about protecting them from abuse, and the same thing goes for babies, they don’t protect their right to live, if a person wants to get Pregnant, take Birth Control, or have an abortion, it is not up to the taxpayer to fun it.

When it comes to it, no one has the right to tell people how to run their lives, that goes for the Government, Churches, or Special Interest, and that is how it is going today, they think that they know better than you, every one is different and has different beliefs, no one person is the same.

Special Insterest Groups Go To Hell

Comment By Bob L.
Nov. 9th 2013

Like they say People Who Live In Glass Houses Should Not Throw Stones! 

Here is a good reason this country is going to hell, to many people today are in bed with BEELZEBUB and his Demon groups, they are trying to take over this Country and Others, first they started on SECOND HAND SMOKE which got a law passed about public places, and now years later they want to SMOKE POT, the hell with SECOND HAND SMOKE, it is now safe according to them, just more two-faced hypocrites, what ever they want they get, just like the ones who are running the Governments, they tell you one thing, and when a YUPPY wants some thing they get it, not the average Citizen.

Now you have Special Interest out there telling you where you can say the WORD GOD, I don’t care if I want to say GOD I will say it, where you are allowed to display his works or where you can worship him, you have people telling you not to say Citizen, Brown Bag, Bang, Hi Jack, even if his name is Jack, you can go on and on with all this bull shit and never be safe in what you say, the way I feel any more, IF YOU DON’T LIKE WHAT WE SAY, WHAT WE EAT, WHERE WE GO, then GOD be willing to help you and your SATAN followers out of this Country, we don’t need you here, it our life not yours to tell we what to do.

A couple of years back, the Obama’s were all over this fat program and taking away your rights to what you wanted to eat, so they went after Sugar, Salt, Trans Fat, Pop, Hamburgers, and about a year later look at what happen to the people who were telling you what to eat, here are the ones who started this eat what I say, this just one of many running you life.

United States Every Day Looks More Like What Cuba Was Doing

Comment By Bob L.
Nov. 8th 2013

I could not believe what I was reading when I saw this article, I thought it was a story about the direction that the United States is taking.

If you look around, you can see farm land being taken over by Taxes and large Land Investors to build more homes, so that the YUPPY Class can move out of the cities into $7 and 8 or 9 hundred Thousand dollar homes, and any one who get in to their way, they close them down, more farm land has been Closed because these people don’t like the smell that comes from these farms that are still in operation, they eventually get them closed down, what is next, total Import of our food that does not always come in safe to eat, and who’s fault is that, CDC and the FDA, better known as the Federal Government and their meddling and not doing their JOB, they are more worried about ruffling some ones feathers then Food Safety.

Like it says, the country is importing around 60 percent of its food, what is the United States doing when it comes to Importing it’s food, we know that when it comes to contaminated foods, the United States throws all the blame on U.S. Farms until some one gets the true story.

First Sentence:  Cuba rolled out a master plan this week to reform food production and sales that definitively ends the state’s monopoly  on distribution and replaces many rules that hamper  farmers and consumers, does that not sound like what the U.S. is starting to monopolize on here in America telling Businesses, Farmers, and the people what they are going to Grow, prepare, eat, and what Country it will come from.

Look at what it did to the Tomato farmers here in the U.S. a few years back when it was really from Mexico, but look what it did to the coast of buying Tomatoes, and we are still paying for it to-day, how many farm are closed today because of it, and now the Government want to control what you are going to eat, so how many people are going to lose their job because of the Federal Government and the President and his wife meddling into the American people’s lives.

A good example of meddling in people’s lives, is the Affordable Care Act, look how many people are losing their Insurance, and are now uninsured, and a lot of them will not be able to afford, and how many are losing or having their hours of work cut.

There are a lot of things that could have been done with out forcing people into an insurance with out a good plan, for one they could have said I won’t go into full details, but all they had to do was, Existing Conditions for one, but do what the Republicans said, allow Insurance Companies cross state lines, and regulate them which they were not, and not let the states say who can operate there, like Washington State, some Insurance Companies can only operate in certain Counties, not the whole state, but there is a lot that can be done with out Forcing people into some Government Controlled Program.

Cuba rolls out master plan for food production and distribution

11-08-2013

HAVANA (Reuters) – Cuba rolled out a master plan this week to reform food production and sales that definitively ends the state’s monopoly on distribution and replaces many rules that hamper farmers and consumers.

A decree, which puts the management of most food distribution in non-state hands, will be applied on an experimental basis in Havana and the adjoining provinces of Artemisa and Mayabeque before going nationwide beginning in 2015. Continue reading

Peoples and Governments Rights Violated

Comment By Bob L.
Nov.6th 2013

When it comes to the rights to People and Government, they should be able to have a say on how the laws are used.

This is where this Country is so screwed up today, you have to many people making decisions by putting so many regulations in a law when passed, this same thing is happening in the Affordable Care Act, only a hand full of people have a say in how it is going to be, and no one else has a say, it should be all Americans have a say in how it will be implemented.

Like Obamacare Democrats are the only ones who can say what is going to happen, no one else has a say, not even the American people who the law is about to put in the poor house, and now with this Pot Law in Washington and Colorado the rest of the U.S. wants this law passed, but yet these same people voted to ban smoking in public places because of health reasons, so now they think that it is all right to smoke pot thinking that it is healthier then Cigarettes, so now look at the hypocrites who banned smoking think it is ok for pot. 

The majority of the people should have a say not a minority, and that is the problem today, a hand full of people can tell you what is good for you without asking, or you don’t know what is good for you like I do, what happen to a vote of the Majority when involves the good of the people, and what they want.

Obama and the Democrats are a good example of a Government take over of the Country, and telling the people that they are now going to tell you what you are going to do and no questions will be asked or answered, and if you don’t follow you will be penalized, if not Imprisoned.

Why don’t the people have a say where this pot can be Grown and Sold? It their neighborhood where the problem will start and become a problem with violence, and look at this law since it was passed, they have more minors using since passage, and that same goes for drinking now that the State went Private, so how should have a say, just because it is a state law, that does not say that Local have to abide by it, it is these local Governments that have to answer to the people when the State or Federal pass unsafe laws, I have a good idea, lets put this pot problem in the neighborhoods of the politicians who let it go on the ballot to be voted on, they want it so let them worry about the problems in their backyard.

State agency seeks advice on local pot bans

By Associated Press
KING5.com
Posted on November 6, 2013

OLYMPIA, Wash.  — Washington state attorneys are exploring whether local governments are allowed to ban businesses who will participate in a legal marijuana market.

The office of Attorney General Bob Ferguson issued a noticed Tuesday seeking input on the question raised by the agency tasked with establishing the system. The Liquor Control Board is asking whether state law prevents local governments from banning a marijuana producer, processor or retailer from locating in the area.

Some local governments such as Pierce County have been exploring whether to ban recreational marijuana businesses.

Voters approved an initiative last year to legalize marijuana. The Liquor Control Board has been developing regulations for a system for businesses to grow, process and sell the product.

Thank these Republicans

Comment By Bob L.
Oct.31st 2013

Ann Coulter could not have said it any better, Republicans have brought it upon them selves, they knew what was happening, and they still shot them selves in their own foot, Republicans need to pony up and let the Legal American Citizens know that they are really on their side and not the rich.

Thank these Republicans for Obamacare

By: Ann Coulter
10/30/2013

We have Obamacare for one reason and one reason only: For a brief, ghoulish period in recent history, Democrats controlled the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives.

We don’t have Obamacare because the public was clamoring for it. We have it because Republicans lost elections.

First, Republicans lost their majorities in the House and the Senate in 2006, thanks to George W. Bush’s highly effective “Keep the Base at Home on Election Day” campaign, which consisted of pushing amnesty for illegal aliens.Then in 2008, Republicans had the bright idea to run crazy-eyed crypt-keeper John McCain for president.

Dump The Tea Party Name and Go With The American People

Comment By Bob L.
Oct.18 2013

We Did It Again, We Stuck it to the Republicans

We Did It Again, We Stuck it to the Republicans and the People

The name TEA PARTY has given the JEALOUS Democrats a way to get back at the Republican Party because the American people are getting tired of them shoving these EXPENSIVE Programs down our throats without a say, other than you have to pass it to no what is in it, and they have the nerve to say that the Republicans are against the people and for the RICH.

What have the Democrats done to the American people here lately, they passed a health care bill behind closed doors with groups who will benefit from Obamacare  [The Rich] not the poor, what will the poor get out of it, losing every thing they have and living in the streets, while trying to protect themselves from thugs that the courts have turn loose and sent back on the street.

Look at Seattle and around the Country, crime and deaths are on the rise because of the Courts and Special Interest Groups, I think it is time that the people start suing the Government and Courts for ignoring the law and not enforcing them, but as you know the working poor will never have the protection that the wealthy get from our Government, every time, you no the old saying we don’t have the money, but they have the money to do the things they want to do. 

Know matter how you say it or do it the American people are going to be the losers no matter what, so now the Democrats have gotten away with it again and blaming the Republicans for what THEY are doing to this Country, whether the Republicans stood their ground or not, this Country is going down under control of the Democrats know matter what the Republicans did, and you can see which Republicans are for Big Business as fast as they caved for Obamacare to make a profit from it.

Where Is Our Government Now

Comment By bob L.
Sept. 25th 2013

What Is our Government doing about this, are they more worried about Obamacare and if they are going to get reelected, why is it that the U.S. Government is not involved with these Foreign Adoptions? There are a lot of Questions that should be asked to why this Country is allowing this to go on.

This shows that this Country is nothing but a throw away country, and they have no regard toward any one but themselves, they buy things to just throw in the garbage when it looks old and a disgrace to their YUPPY life, see, they must have every thing new and shiny or some one would say they were a disgrace and not keeping up with the Jones.

I don’t know about you but I think that it is a disgrace that this country talks about Human Rights Violations, and then puts this out front for every one to see, putting out Dirty Landry to the world and where we stand on Human Rights.

Obama’s and the Czars could care less about this, they are more worries about their agendas then to get involved with this, they would worry more about Obesity, what we will eat, what we are going to buy, and how much they can get off the American people while they are still in office, and how about Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, what are they doing about this, NOTHING, they could care less, they are more interested on taking over this Country.

School to Parents: We Want to Hit Your Kids

Comment By Bob L.
Sept. 21st 2013

[“According to Leeds City Schools Public Policy, parents or legal guardians who do not want corporal punishment to be administered to their child/children must inform the principal of the school on an annual basis.” ]   IF PARENTS were doing THEIR JOB raising their kids, and not the Schools or the Street, they would not be getting into trouble.

Now if the parents don’t want to see their Child punished for being out of line and unruly, then they should be suspended from school for one week on the first offence, if the parents don’t do any thing about it and the child continues, then suspend them for a month and make the parents pay a fine for any Damage or Problems that occur why they were being punished. It is the parents responsibly to raise their Children NOT the Schools, so parents should be held Financially responsible for what their Kids do if they don’t want them punished. No punishment mean that they can away with it and continue with it.

If these kids are disruptive and causing problems then they should be picked up by the police and put in child detention and go before a judge, and the parents pay court cost .

This why there is so much problems in children are occurring today, and why these kids are running free on the streets with no supervision or punishment when they get in trouble, they want the schools to teach these kids between the difference from right and wrong but can not punish them, so they know that they can get away with what ever they want and nothing will happen, because they even know that their parents wont even punish them, and then they wonder why these kids are in trouble, it is time for the parents to do their job and take care of them and not some one else.

But these parents are the first ones to complain about the problems these kids are in to and saying that some one should do some thing about it.

Why do you think Kids are in so much trouble today, because of this type of thinking: Spanking Kids May Cause Mental Disorders in Adulthood, But there is punishment within reason.

CDC & The Food & Drug are they Really Protecting Us, Or Companies?

Comment By Bob L.
July 12th 2013

Why are these Ag laws something to worry about, especially when our protector have let a so much bad food get put on the market.

I don’t know about you, I would be a little worries about what is being put on the store shelves, and in the meat coolers and freezers of your favorite food stores.

We know that steroids (illegal for humans to use) are being feed to beef up our meat, and now we have Marijuana starting to be put in the feed, and our food, is this how they are going to make us healthy by putting Drugs in out food, what else is being put into our foods that they don’t want you to know.

I can understand these radical groups that are only there to make people to think their way, and it does not have any thing to do with the safety of out food, just their way to protest, but not for the good of the Country.

Why are our Government Inspector not turning in wrong doings at these plants when Whistleblowers are seeing it going on? Is it I scratch your back you scratch mine, you know how the Government Agencies classify things that are really not to be classified.

National Geographic Photographer Arrested After Taking Photos of Kansas Feedlot

<a id="yui_3_9_1_1_1373641583508_575" href="http://www.takepart.com/">Takepart.com</a>

 

 

Takepart.com
07-11-2013

A freelance photographer on assignment for National Geographic was arrested in Finney County, Kansas, on June 28, after snapping aerial photographs of a cattle feedlot as part of a series on food issues scheduled for next year.

According to the Hutchinson News, Steinmetz was spotted in the air by a feedlot employee who reported the sighting to the sheriff’s office, noting that Steinmetz’s SUV was parked on ranch property. After Steinmetz and his ground support, Wei Zhang (described as a self-employed paraglide instructor), moved to another location, the feedlot executives insisted the men be arrested.

To be clear, George Steinmetz, who took the aerial photos from a paraglider, was not charged with breaking the state’s Farm Animal and Field Crop and Research Facilities Protection Act (we’ll get to that in a minute). Finney County Sheriff Kevin Bascue tells us that Steinmetz and Zhang were “arrested for having allegedly driven their vehicle onto private property that was clearly posted ‘No Trespassing.’ ”

Steinmetz did not respond to our request for an interview. National Geographic spokesperson Beth Foster would only issue this statement:

George Steinmetz was briefly detained by authorities in Kansas on June 28, 2013.  He was shooting aerial photographs for National Geographic magazine, as part of a series of stories on food issues that will appear next year.  We believe he did not break any laws and have reached out to local officials about the incident.  We are awaiting more information.  If the matter does require legal action, National Geographic will provide for his and his assistant’s defense.

Susan Richmeier, Finney County attorney, tells TakePart this is a simple criminal trespass misdemeanor case.

“The deal with these animal facilities is they’re not enclosed. They’re contained. There are trade secrets and security issues. What are they taking the photos for? To damage us? Sue us? Why is someone there? If someone is coming onto posted property—the question is why? Most of the feedlot guys would cooperate with any photographer. They just want to be asked,” says Richmeier.

Which feedlot facility are we talking about? Richmeier declined to identify them.

“They don’t want to be put in the public eye,” she says.

A looksee through the Kansas Department of Agriculture Division of Animal Health’s Annual Feedlot Report shows there are at least 12 feedlot facilities in Finney County, with a combined capacity of over 305,000 head of cattle. (To put that in perspective, Finney County has a population of approximately 37,000 people.) At its simplest definition, feedlots are the final stage of production, where cattle go to be fattened for market.

While the call to police was about a trespassing charge, it’s easy to jump to the underlying conclusion—this is really about Kansas’ ag-gag statue.

“Kansas was actually one of the first states to adopt a law restricting access to agricultural operations and prohibiting the photographing of agricultural facilities,” says Susan Schneider, Director, LL.M. in Agricultural & Food Law at the University of Arkansas School of Law. “The Kansas legislature passed the “Farm Animal and Field Crop and Research Facilities Protection Act” (K.S.A. 47-1825-1830) in 1990. This statute makes it a crime to ‘enter an animal facility to take pictures by photograph, video camera or by any other means.’ ”

But Steinmetz didn’t enter the facility; he flew through the air above it. Had he not been arrested for trespassing, would he have been crossing the legal line by taking photos from above? The answer is unclear.

“A landowner’s rights do extend to the airspace above his/her property. But the airways can be analogized to a public highway. If one is traveling through the air for a legitimate purpose in a reasonable manner at a height that would not unreasonably interfere with the landowner’s enjoyment of his/her property, in conformity with relevant flight regulations, then it would not be a trespass,” writes Schneider in an email.

“This issue may be coming up more and more, as state and federal gov’t agencies often need to rely on aerial photos for enforcement of conservation and environmental laws,” she says.

It’s also a hot topic among journalists and animal activists who are considering the use of drones to gather photo evidence of animal abuse.

Schneider says the issue here isn’t whether it’s a charge of trespassing or a violation of the agricultural protection act.

“The real issue is transparency. Farmers, feedlot operators and processors are all producing a product to sell to consumers. And that product is perhaps the most essential product on Earth—our food. Anytime the industry complains that people should not take a picture of how our food is being produced, it casts all of agriculture in a bad light,” she writes.
