You’re Free To Do What We Want

“God is on your side? Is He a Conservative? The Devil’s on my side, he’s a good Communist.”

“Life has improved, comrades. Life has become more joyous.”

— Joseph Stalin

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… (

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.


“What luck for rulers that men do not think.” — Adolf Hitler

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.

  1. Bob, I’d like to say you’re being reactionary…only problem is I’ve come to the same conclusion..

  2. Obama is toast; but, he will continue to do as much damage as he can in the time he has left. Four more years of Obama and we would become the USSA without a shot being fired.

  3. Consevatiives, I’m getting concerned over another 16 months.. If Congress doesn’t actually vote down something in his agenda, he takes it as approval and regulates it into existence. He tells Hispanics, Congresses intentions don’t since he gets to decide how to enforce the law and what laws to enforce..

    I’m hoping Issa gets to the bottom of some of this stuff fast, I believe the evidence of criminal wrong doing that Harry Reid can’t ignore is there,. I could get used to saying President Biden for a year.

      President Biden? Well, at least he’d be good for a few laughs. One thing’s for sure–this business of bypassing Congress by Executive Order has to be curtailed.

  4. Freedom, by the way says:

    We all need to protest with civil disobedience on these outrageous affronts to our freedoms. At my son’s elementary school several years ago, the principal sent a note home about bringing healthy snacks instead of cupcakees for birthday parties (yeah, those kids really like carrot sticks intead of chocolate). Then she sent a note home about packed lunches being healthy. I marched in and told her I was responsible for my son’s nutrition and would put in his lunch whatever I wanted–which always includes chips and usually a sweet or granola bar. My son was, and is, extremely physically active and I try to keep the pounds from coming off! THAT’s a little thing–but we all need to focus our efforts on what we can do and stand up for what’s right in our own corner of the world and take on the bigger issues when we can. The government is a pack of bullies. Stand up!

  5. Angel says:

    affronts on our freedoms indeed and we have been taking it like horrific BOB!

  6. If I don’t care for the taste of a restaurant’s food, I’ll go elsewhere or — better yet — eat at home.

    The Nanny State is running rampant!

  7. And…I note that nursing-home food is very salty. Why? Because many elderly folk won’t eat at all if the food isn’t seasoned. Old taste buds need salt!

  8. What has happened to my country in my lifetime, I was there when FDR gave us the New Deal, when LBJ gave us the Great Society, and now BHO gives us total control of our lives, he must be defeated, our country could not survive a second term.

    It is good to see more and more people speaking out on this Bob. Great post and as always thank you for leading the charge. America is too young to die.

  10. Matt Ross says:

    The longer this goes on, the more and more they openly state their intentions. We bloggers are going to be very busy over the next 16 months.
