I just hate 'em. Well...hates is such a strong word but I hate what they do. These busy-body do gooders along with greedy selfish exploiters see no aspect of our lives that they do not wish to micro manage for fun and profit. It makes them feel important and they can garnish a tidy living at it as well. The main weapons in their arsenal are fear and violence. First they scare you with their statistics that usually are half truths to outright lies. Then they bring out the guns and kill you if you don't want to live your life under their rule. I'm not talking about public actions either. I'm talking about private personal beliefs and decisions. I'm talking about your personal thoughts and private actions. They make rules about what air vibrations can emanate from your vocal cords and I'm not talking about harmful speech like screaming fire in the theater either. Adults around the world have a bevy of rules on proper penis usage and there are a good deal more for the vagina. These rules include genital mutilation and even removal of the offending organ in extreme cases. The teetotalers have an ever growing infinite list of banned chemicals and or plant combinations that will get you imprisoned or killed if you ignore their rules. Fresh from the front lines of these busybody's successes against tobacco usage, including huge tax windfalls for these tyrants to spend and outright bans for smoking on private property, they now hope to tax fats and sugars as well as ban private usage in restaurants. Where does it end amigos...where does it end?
I tell you where it ends. It ends in a place that looks and feels a lot like Havana, Cuba does today. And you must remember that Havana was not always like this. Sadly, I cannot think of even one culture the world around that is not now on the road to Havana serfdom. Surely, America and some other democracies around the world are much farther away from that last stop on the Havana line than others who are rolling into the last stops on the line before that final destination. But Costa Rica gives me hope. The internet too might be our last best hope to stem the tide of tyranny.
In the mean time amigos...mind your own business! If you are living properly then one life with family and friends is more than enough to occupy all of your time and then some. If you feel the urge to micro manage the lives of others than you are a hollow, shallow person searching for a reason to live. My advice...get a life!
