PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:
WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration announced sweeping rules on Tuesday that will require chain restaurants, movie theaters and pizza parlors across the country to post calorie counts on their menus. Health experts said the new requirements would help combat the country’s obesity epidemic by showing Americans just how many calories lurk in their favorite foods.
“This is one of the most important public health nutrition policies ever to be passed nationally,” said Margo Wootan, director of nutrition policy at the Center for Science in the Public Interest. “Right now, you are totally guessing at what you are getting. This rule will change that.”
Menu labeling became law in 2010 as part of the Affordable Care Act, and the F.D.A. issued a proposal for how it should be put into effect the following year. But the final rules were delayed for three years, in part because of fierce opposition from pizza and movie theater chains. The rules were published in the Federal Register, a government journal, on Tuesday morning…
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
My position is not a popular one here, because I am against calorie counts in menus. First for aesthetic reason, but mainly for the way it is being foisted upon me and the public around me.
Sure, I might like to know what I’m getting at times, but first and foremost, people in government have no legitimate delegated authority to do this, so they can’t legally require it.
They usurp power they were not given, and those requiring it should be imprisoned. Instead they will be praised by the unknowing, unwitting, and useful idiots. Some of you need to look in a mirror. You only think you cherish freedom.
This is also law making by unelected bureaucrats, a complete corruption of our political process. Congress cannot legitimately delegate its law making power to an agency, regardless of what courts have said or what powers they have granted unto themselves. The Constitution forbids it, and I for one demand it. They are beyond their authority, and have earned arrest and trial for malfeasance and violation of oath.
Finally, if my neighbors and I want to know calories counts badly enough, it would fall to the media and the public square to make this so plainly known that the restaurants that provided it would prosper, and others would wither and pass away, if things ran as they should.
That things do not run so is not a reason or excuse to compromise the integrity of our political system, and I would sooner live without calorie counts forced upon our printed menus than a government granting itself such power that a restaurant that fails to do so could be driven out of business by government gone wild.

This is government regulation at its worse – serves no purpose and people do not want it, nor need it. What people do want is GMO labels, get it?
I quit fixing up my property like Eric says- Just to pay more taxes on it. I know many people with the same idea and goal. Soon, neighborhoods will look like trash- the effects of the evil of governments. Why should we take care of what we do not own.
If you grumble about big government, the solution will not be to get more “tax cheats” to pay more taxes. The solution is to reduce government, reduce taxes. How to do that? Here are some steps: 1 – the people need to get mad at all tax waste, and virtually all spending, 2 – the people need to stop sucking off the government because they figure they are “due’, and that means everyone, 3 – the people need to demand that the budget gets cut, and gets cut dramatically – and yes people will be mad that they have to… Read more »
