Big Government Crosshairs

Big Government Crosshairs

Editor’s Note:  Fishing For Big Contributions from Big Pharmaceuticals…  Stock up!  Anything that works with minimal side effects, natural and therefore cannot be patented will be in their sights.  We need to stop looking at big government / big business issues as competing honorable objectives.  Largely THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE ISSUE, but there is a payoff in terms of contributions or in kind support involved.  If you look behind the curtain you will see, as in this case, there is a usurpation, or wrongful seizing and holding by force, of powers NOT GRANTED BY THE CONSTITUTION, by government.   Republicans, as a whole, do not necessary support big business because they are great capitalists.  Democrat politicians rarely support “green” because they love trees.  Each party develops a constituency of “useful idiots” around these issues to divide “We The People” into separate camps.  They pit us against one another: create fear each of the other;  fabricate loyalty from within their constituencies; and collect favors, money and power for themselves.
That is WHY turning a blind eye to constitutional considerations leads inevitably to separation from your liberty, property and God given rights.

DoJ to announce actions against dietary supplement makers [Nanny state alert!]

Federal agencies including the Department of Justice will announce on Tuesday criminal and civil actions related to unlawful advertising and sale of dietary supplements.

Shares of dietary supplement makers GNC Holdings Inc were down 24 percent in afternoon trading, while those of Vitamin Shoppe fell nearly 8 percent and Herbalife Ltd 2.5 percent.

Herbalife spokesman Alan Hoffman said in an email the investigation had nothing to do with the company.

Representatives of GNC and Vitamin Shoppe were not immediately available for comment.

The DoJ said it would hold a news conference at 3:30 p.m. ET to announce the results of its investigation.

The DoJ said the news conference would be attended by representatives of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Defense and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

GNC Holdings came under scrutiny from the office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman earlier this year related to certain ingredients used in its herbal supplements.

Like the CBF and other issues, with this I’m in the odd quandary of feeling obligated to stand up and fight in favor of something I’m not in favor of. I want to live the lesson of the old “first they came for…” parable, conflicted by the weirdness of defending something against legislation when I’d otherwise berate it at length.

I get the impression the federal government would be happier if we were all dead and they can replace this with a nice little Muslim slaves

yes and yes and a lot of good points are being posted here

but still.. .there are some advertisements (even on ‘conservative talk radio’ programs) making claims for products that are patently untrue, or for which there is little or no reliable evidence

such as ‘lose…
