Although it’s been going on for years, it seems lately there is an all-out assault by the nanny government to crack down on our liberties.
In any normal, liberty loving society, when the people push back, there government is supposed to acquiesce to their (our) wishes. That’s the way it’s supposed to work. Government is supposed to serve the people.
But we all know that’s a joke – a sick joke, with a bad punchline.
Nowadays, when the people say no, our rulers just do the old end around, or sleight-of-hand. They cause us to concentrate on one thing and do another behind our backs.
Lately it seems that even this tactic has changed and the Nanny State has begun to attack us from all sides.
Take this global warming nonsense. With every passing year, the people are coming to realize what a hoax it has been. Every poll conducted puts the climate change concern at or near the bottom of a fairly long list of worries.
The left is losing the argument and they know it. And what do we know about the left and arguments? That’s right – as they lose traction on an issue, rather than let the issue die, they become even wackier, even more unhinged, finding even more devious ways to control our behavior.
And that is why I don’t think it’s a coincidence that all this nudging and shoving is being ramped up. We must keep in mind that leftists don’t stop. They may change tactics, but they will never stop.
A few examples:
First, we’ve recently heard that the makers of Al Gore’s masterpiece, An Inconvenient Truth, are pondering a sequel. Yep – we can’t get enough Al Gore. They must believe this is a way to re-create buzz about their faltering movement.
Second, a British government official wants “man-made global warming deniers” arrested and jailed. He wants to deny the “deniers” access to radio and television interviews.
Third, in the next several years, Café standards for trucks and cars are being raised to ridiculous, possibly unachievable levels.
Fourth, the government health brainiacs are devising a plan to text fat people. Yes, the 15 members of the nanny “Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee” are looking out for us. These 15, all pointy-headed intellectuals theoreticians, don’t want us to consume trans fats, sugar, salt, soda or red meat and are developing a method to remind us, or at least the fat ones. And how will they find out who’s fat? Why, from the information provided when signing up for Obamacare. You know, the information that is supposed to be kept private.
