Eugenics, By Any Other Name……
It’s getting tougher and tougher on common people, poor people, all the time. We read about and discuss the policies and social movements about the country and how they are part of the Progressive Movement dating back a century or more, how they are communism and fascism disguised as some kind of benign socialism or what-have-you.
It’s all worth keeping track of and exposing, but those individual items being inculcated into the American scene bit-by-bit and promoted as boons to the health and well-being of man and his environment are like Old Man River – they just keep rolling along.
Jerry Brown doesn’t shop at Wal Mart. But he and the California State Assembly want to put themselves between you, the consumer and your friendly local WalMart store and tell you and Wal Mart how you and Wal Mart must package, or not package, the goods you buy there.
Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of checkout counters at large grocery stores and supermarkets such as Wal-Mart and Target starting next summer, and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law does not apply to bags used for fruits, vegetables or meats, or to shopping bags used at other retailers. It allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags.
“The law does not apply to bags used for fruits, vegetables or meats.” Well, why wouldn’t it? Because, as any normal person could have told California cities who had already banned plastic bags, these “reusable” bags they want everybody to take into the store with them to put groceries in have very often become tainted with salmonella, e-coli and other cruddy things. See, all of the advances of modern technology and free enterprise, like plastic bags, have reduced the incidence of sickness and disease. Just like all the plastics they use in modern medicine these days. IT’S SANITARY AND UTILE, FOR PETE’S SAKE!
Now, I don’t know how the California arrangement is going to work out in practice, or how it has been done in the cities that have already banned plastic bags. But unlike Jerry Brown, I shop at Wal Mart and not only that, I use the self-checkout feature and I bag my own purchases – groceries, meat, fruit, vegetables as well as dry goods, cleaning supplies, clothing, paper goods, all of it. If I were in California, would there be someone standing there monitoring what I put in my bags that they have so graciously allowed me to put meat in? If I bring my own bag, which I have carried fish,chicken, eggs and turnips in for several years, are they just okay with me plopping it down at the checkout and letting the germs crawl all over the place for the next customer?
Of course “they” are okay with it. Because “they” don’t shop at WalMart, and if “they” did “they” would throw away their “reusable” bags every time they used them, just as we, the po’folk, throw away our contaminated single-use bags as it is.
HOW DO YOU “CONTROL” 310 MILLION PEOPLE?
“They” are what is known in the parlance as The Ruling Class. And this example I present is one of just hundreds, yea even thousands, of Nanny State laws, rules and regulations being foisted upon Free People and the Free Market as part of a cynical, disingenuous, outright pernicious and falsely- premised campaign to lull We The People into some kind of complacent notion that “They” are looking out for us.
They told us decades ago that we had to stop using so much paper, as in paper bags, because we were using so much that we were running out of trees. Science and technology came along and gave us plastic bags. Made from chemicals. What kind of chemicals? Petrochemicals. Petro. As in oil. Decayed plants and animals. It is natural, countrymen. It is ALL natural. Man has created nothing in the (take your pick) 4,000, 10,000 or 200 million years he has been on the planet. He has merely taken what nature (or his God. Again, take your pick) has provided and adapted it for his use.
So when they tell you that plastic bags will remain in a landfill for an eon or so before they break down….so what? That dinosaur and that mulberry bush laid there for a long time before they became the oil that gave us that plastic. What is your point, whackos? You have no point. Except to prohibit the Country Class from challenging your Ruling Class ambitions.
We could go on at this point to bring up the subject of how the national Centers for Disease Control, indeed the Federal Government as a whole, is handling the current Ebola Virus situation. That subject is already all over the news, however, and no doubt you are on pins and needles wondering whether it’s going to be contained, whether the Country Class (that’s us, folks) will be protected, whether it will become pandemic, and all that is yet to ensue.
Just remember – Ebola will kill you, that’s for sure. But if you think people don’t die from salmonella and some of the lesser-publicized ills, such as the denial of medical treatment or the banning of procedures and tests or the taxing out of ordinary useage of medical devices under the new Obamacare regime, you need to re-evaluate your awareness.
