There is a nutrition bill moving along toward President Barack Obama which would allow the government power to limit school bake sales or other fundraisers that some say can replace wholesome meals in schools. This legislation is part of Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign. --- Internet news release
So, should anyone be surprised as the federal government continues to boldly infringe on the rights of United States citizens. None of us fully realizes the extent of the "invasion" that has taken place over the past few decades let alone the past few months.
It is an ongoing "cancer" of a different kind -- the predominant thinking and attitude in Washington DC that elected officials are more intelligent than the citizens they were elected to represent, starting with the president of the U.S. and his wife!
Therefore they know far better than we what is best for us and new laws and regulations are necessary in order to establish a higher "quality of life" for us -- stated simply -- "The federal government is resolved to save us from ourselves!"
Mentioned at the beginning is one of the latest debacles -- the government is going to seek to limit school bake sales which are one of the common ways fundraising has been done by various groups connected with our schools. This on the pretense of fighting off obesity!
Could it be as time moves on that the government will want to control our lives to the extent that we will actually have to ask permission to go to a rest room? At the risk of giving some politicians or the president or his wife a hint for pressing for new legislation, the grounds for this would be that we might contribute to further polluting the environment by our use of the rest room -- if we are merely going to wash our hands or comb our hair, that might be OK -- but don't do anything more than that!
Hey, don't laugh -- we're dealing with a government that has moved well into the area of what is most accurately described as the "lunatic fringe!" It might just happen, so get ready to raise your hand as we did in the old one room country schools of long ago and ask permission to go to the toilet -- we didn't actually say the word -- it was just, "May I leave the room?" And the teacher understood what our destination was, and that we would be returning to the school room in a short time after we had completed our "mission." Also it is highly unlikely that the so-called Republican "victories" of November 2010 will make any real significant difference in the future
But the good news is that the day is coming when there will be no legislating and passing of stupid laws -- all politicians will be out of a job. God has future plans for His creation and for this world, and that includes the control of this world under the direction of His Son, Jesus Christ. All dictators, prime ministers, presidents, members of parliaments and congressional bodies will be removed from their positions! At long last the world will know peace and God's standards will be in place and enforced -- a very healthy and profitable change. I hope it happens before the United States government tells me I have to raise my hand and ask for its permission to go to the rest room!
Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" --- Revelation 11:15
