U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told members of the National Restaurant Association on Monday that Americans need to “adjust” their tastes so that they like the kind of food the government believes they should eat… (CNSnews.com)
What’s next for the tyrants in this totally un-American administration? Vilsack, of course, showed his true colors (shades of Red) while governor of Iowa by vetoing a bill designed to protect citizens from theft by government caused by the 5-4 Supreme Court eminent domain ruling in Kelo v. City of New London [Emphasis mine]:
It has everything to do with Vilsack’s mental illness whereby he thinks that government knows best and government has every right to take your home or business and give it to some politically-connected and rich lawyer or business for their own profit. (State 29)
Vilsack has also called the food stamp program (rebranded as SNAP = Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) an economic stimulus:
“…when you talk about the SNAP program or the foot stamp program, you have to recognize that it’s also an economic stimulus. Every dollar of SNAP benefits generates $1.84 in the economy in terms of economic activity. If people are able to buy a little more in the grocery store, someone has to stock it, package it, shelve it, process it, ship it. All of those are jobs. It’s the most direct stimulus you can get in the economy during these tough times.”
By this twisted logic, the economy should be booming since record numbers of citizens have become dependent on “nutritional assistance” during the reign of Obama.

Obama and his allies will dictate how much you may earn, what you may eat, what kind of car you may drive (if any), how you may heat your home, what kind of light bulbs you may use in it, and how much water your toilets use; they will monitor via the so-called “Smart Grid” how much energy you may consume; they will control your health, your access to medical care, and how you may dispose of your property; they will restrict your access to information via so-called “Net Neutrality” edicts. They will track your movements via biometrics embedded in your driver’s license. They will control your environment and your mind.
And then they will tell you you are free.
