Ready Or Not, Here It Comes...!
Now there is an interesting article in the Houston Chronicle and I have to say, it does make me wonder...
The Government has decided that because of it's glorious success in the past, the Congress of the United States has voted to give the FDA far reaching power to regulate the making and marketing of cigarettes!
That's right, friend. The same agency that allowed the distribution of tainted peanut butter to be made available to consumers is now going to be in charge of the manufacturing of cigarettes. This new legislation will allow the FDA to regulate the ingredients in tobacco products.
Now this strikes me as wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to start! Besides getting into the banking and auto business, the Feds are now going into the tobacco business! I guess the next logical step is to move into the liquor business.
It appears to me that the plan is being implemented to take over and control the "luxury" items like cigarettes, liquor, media industries including television, and then when all of these are under control...the Government can move on to the real target on the list. FOOD!
If you don't think that the control of the food supply is part of the agenda, I don't think you are seeing the long term picture! We have already seen some traces of fedgov control in the food industry, and I would be willing to bet that a move on full blown control is just around the corner.
There are very good examples around the world of societies that have allowed their governments to take over control of things like medicine, manufacturing, food industries, movies, newspapers, fuel supplies and so on and so on. How do you think that's working for the average citizens?
Want to get a glimpse of what's in our future? Find a copy of George Orwell's "1984" and give it a read! When it first came out, it was considered to be pure hogwash and very, very unlikely. Now...it seems not only likely but very probable!
The warning flags are being raised in large numbers, my friends. We had better start really watching the workings of the PTB and paying more attention to the innocent looking bills being passed that, if the truth be told, do nothing to protect the consumers but serve only to control them. You can bet that hidden inside some of these seemingly harmless bills are hidden the laws that will spell out just another set of steps to do away with the choices we think we are in control of.
I hate to say it, but I can see that somewhere down the road, we will no longer have the freedom to chose our religions, our schooling for our children, the providers of our health care, the food that we eat, or even where we live!
All I can say is that it is a very good thing that those of us that are members of the "prepping" community are always prepping and getting ready for anything, including the tightening of controls over medicine and food. If we aren't, we should be! I have a feeling that the moves to control these aspects are coming a lot sooner than any of us ever even considered!
I think the Scouts had it right when they used the motto "Be Prepared!"...
Now let's get some coffee, sit around the patio table and discuss... just what the hell is coming next!
