Chocolate Milk Challenge

Rise up Chocolate Milk lovers and take your stand against the evil oppressors that are trying to stop you from enjoying your sacred drink...or something like that.

This vlog was done by one of my favorite blogging friends, Spacekicker. It's brilliant.

Drink up, y'all. And yes, morons, you can add Val-U-Rite to your chocolate milk.

Sacramento tells me what I can and can't eat

A big thank you is in order to Nanny Schwarzenegger and all his Democrat pals in the Legislature for saving me from my stupid, stupid self!

California, a national trendsetter in all matters edible, became the first state to ban trans fats in restaurants when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill Friday to phase out their use over the next few years.

Under the new law, the fats must be excised from restaurant products beginning in 2010, and from all retail baked goods by 2011. Packaged manufactured foods will be exempt.
Thank God! I mean, I might choose to buy some of that stuff, and that would be wrong.
In recent years trans-fats have become almost the new cigarettes among public health policy makers, with consumer behavior as much in the crosshairs as the product itself in governments’ attempt to curb harmful effects.

“I think the potential here is real for a far greater understanding of the harms of trans-fats,” said Dr. Clyde Yancy, the incoming president of the American Heart Association. “And to encourage more states to do the same.”

Yep. Let's have all the states ban the icky, icky stuff. Next, maybe they can go after booze. Hell, let's just legislate the joy out of all our lives. We'd be safer that way. Healthier, too.

Remember, it's For Your Own Good.

Reason creates a rough freedom index and compares the 35 biggest cities in America

Chicago of course being the Nanny Capital. Philly was ranked number 26 in spite of itself, those of us in the non-Soviet parts of the state kept them from imposing fascist anti-gun laws on Philly citizens, which probably would have made it drop even further.  You're welcome Philly, even though most of you Marxist clowns aren't smart enough to appreciate it.

Carolyn McCarthy (NSDAP-NY) sued by Long Island resident for gun confiscation

After the guy apparently made a scene or got in an argument about illegal immigration at the New York office of Carolyn McCarthy.  The office contacted the police, who then confiscated his legally owned firearms

The article makes no mention of any crime this guy committed, and I don't see where he's been charged with anything.  The office of the fascist McCarthy claims that the guy's behavior was "disruptive and threatening." 

I'm not buying it, I wouldn't trust the McCarthy or anyone who would work for that Nazi unless they had video or audio that showed him acting in a genuinely threatening manner.  Of course if he did make a threat then I'd expect to see his firearms confiscated, followed by an arrest and charges filed.  I'm not seeing that, and until I see that, this guy had his civil rights violated.

For a little refresher, I'd like to remind people what a reckless, dangerous person this authoritarian idiot McCarthy is,*

Get that?  She wants to restrict an essential human right, acknowledged by the Constitution which she swore to uphold and defend, and she was literally willing(still is) to simply impose a ban on barrel shroud, when she didn't even know what a barrel shroud was in the first place!  That she can think so little of the gravity of restricting a Constitutional right is truly disturbing. 

Illegal confiscation of legally owned firearms isn't anything new either, people in New Orleans recently had their civil rights violated this way as well.

*This is also where that smarmy little douche Tucker Carlson redeemed himself for me forever, for the record.

So why not just get rid of the police dogs at this stage?

And Britain's downward spiral continues.  Following the efforts to make police dogs wear booties when they are to be taken into muslim homes for searches, the Brits are now working to set setting guidelines demanding police avoid frightening criminals with their dogs and to be mindful of potential allergies

Pwn3d! Our Lord and Savior rejects having British PM at His Downing Street press conference

You know things are bad for Gordon Brown when He Who Is refuses to have him in His holy presence.  Probably a smart move on Messiah's part, He knows that He has to deflect the Nanny Stater accusations, and hanging around with a first rate Nanny like Gordon Brown (or any British PM at this stage) in any high profile way would look bad.

Wait! You Mean Public Oral Sex Competitions While On Holiday Are Illegal?

Damn! Fucking European Nanny-Staters! Where can a fella go to get some relief nowadays?

All of this stems from the fact nine adventure seeking British women ran afoul of the Greek Authorities after trying to hold an oral sex competition on the holiday island of Zakynthos.

Not only that, but the fellows involved are in trouble as well.

Six British and six Greek men, including two bar owners, were also charged in the incident, which took place at Laganas beach in the south of the Ionian island, which lies off the west coast of mainland Greece, police said

The women, who came to the popular resort on holiday, had been paid to take part in the competition, which was video recorded and was to be posted on the Internet, police said.

Sure beats the hell out of any vacation I have ever had.

"Food Apartheid"

Mary Katharine Ham has the latest on the growing Grub Gestapo movement, who wants to use the sword of government to dictate how, where and what you eat, this time in South Central LA.  Some dumbass authoritarian councilwoman named Jan Perry wants to ban new fast food joints from opening up in South Central because she thinks that the lack of hipster douchebag health food found in more affluent parts of LA makes for a "Food Apartheid" or some damn thing.  I'm not sure she beats Janice Hahn's subsidized gangstas for dumbest legislative idea, but a good effort. 

Perry claims there is nothing but junk food available to people in South Central.  MKH easily smacks down that lie, and correctly notes most (nearly all really) of the major fast food franchises have significant portions of their menus devoted to healthier choices, people are choosing the greasy stuff. 

This is an issue of choice, not of availability, the fact that South Central residents are choosing Big Macs over McSalads is what Perry is attacking.  You ignorant proles in South Central aren't doing what Commissar Perry wants, and she's gonna make you pay by sucking a little joy out of your life, and possibly more...

Isn't a restaurant, a fast food joint (either as a franchise or an individual startup) in particular a popular choice for people looking to start small businesses?  As I understand it, Big Burger joints tend to try and offer franchise opportunities to people who would never otherwise be able to access them on their own in economically depressed areas like South Central. 

This Nanny ban would probably crush any opportunity for that to happen.  Of course, said Nanny Ban would may likely destroy any individual efforts to start up restaurants as well, things like small family run restaurants.  Perry must know this, yet her desire to feed her authoritarian impulses overrides the need for opportunities found in feeding South Central LA.

England Now Immune to Mockery

Direct to you from the "What the fuck?" department:

Britain's High Court has ruled that Pringles are not a potato snack, and thus are not subject to value-added tax.

Friday's ruling by Justice Nicholas Warren is expected to save millions for the manufacturer, Procter & Gamble Co.

Warren overruled a VAT Tribunal decision that Pringles should be subject to the 17.5-percent tax because it met the definition of "potato crisps, potato sticks, potato puffs and similar products made from the potato, or from potato flour, or from potato starch."

If I were to sum up my (l)ibertarian philosophy in one anectode it might be insisting that the phrase "potato crisps, potato sticks, potato puffs and similar products made from the potato" not appear in any government document.

Anyway, scary fact of the article:

The judge found that Pringles were only 42 percent potato, and thus exempt.
Okay, what the fuck are pringles made of? I demand a fucking answer.

Stabbings becoming major problem in Britain

I don't get it, they banned guns over there, all this mindless killing is supposed to stop, right?  As it turns out, not so much, it appears that thugs in Britain are content with stabbing their victims to death now, and are doing so more frequently.  So what's the next move, Britain? Gonna ban kitchen knives, make everyone eat Gerber and pudding cups from here on out?  Or are you finally going to admit that authoritarianism doesn't work and self-defense is a natural human right?

What the Government Is Really Saying...

... when they pass laws to "help" you:

The recent "hands-free" cell phone law that passed in California reminded me of the basis of all of these idiotic laws. You're too stupid to use your phone while you drive. You're too stupid to manage your retirement. You're too stupid to raise your kids. You're too stupid to own a firearm. You're too stupid to teach your children. You're too stupid to eat healthy.
He goes on for long enough that I almost turned anarchist.
