Must Reads For The Week 4/2/16
Feds To Fine Schools For Not Following Michelle Obama’s Lunch Rules, at tammybruce.com. The Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service is going to fine schools who don’t abide by the regulations set forth by The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. They will fine schools for ‘egregious or persistent disregard’ for the rules imposing limits on sodium and calorie intake and banned white grains. Two questions. 1) Did you know there was a Food and Nutrition Service agency as part of the Dep. of Agriculture? 2) Who decides what constitutes ‘egregious” and “persistent disregard’? This has been a disaster from the start, read, Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act Doesn’t Work As Planners Planned. Read, Michelle’s ‘Eat What I Tell You To Eat’ Program is Crashing. Read, Black Market In Food Items Springs Up In Schools, Thanks Michelle. I like that people have decided to not complying with the law. This is the spirit of our founding fathers.
At Emory University, Writing ‘Trump 2016’ On Sidewalks Is A Racist Microaggression, by Robby Soave, at reason.com. No comment needed.
Mises: The Individual Within Society, at mises.org. Article taken from ‘Human Action’ by Ludwig von Mises. Here is an excerpt; “The natural condition of man is extreme poverty and insecurity. It is romantic nonsense to lament the passing of the happy days of primitive barbarism. In a state of savagery the complainants would either not have reached the age of manhood, or if they had, they would have lacked the opportunities and amenities provided by civilization. Jean Jacques Rousseau and Frederick Engels, if they had lived in the [p. 166] primitive state which they describe with nostalgic yearning, would not have enjoyed the leisure required for their studies and for the writing of their books.”
When Will This Awfulness Be Over?, by Jessica Hagy, at thisisindexed.com. Jessica Hagy puts a lot of insight on 3 by 5 cards using venn diagrams, charts, and graphs. Here is the best insight I’ve seen about the election season.
Apple Has Done It Again, at theburningplatform.com. I don’t know if this is true, but it is funny. “Apple has announced that it has developed a computer chip that can store and play Hi Fi music in women’s breast implants.” Go to the article for the punchline.
CIA Leaves Explosive Materials On School Bus, at targetliberty.com. The CIA borrows a bus for a training exercise. They return it to the school district but forgot to take the explosives out of the bus. Mechanics found the explosives after the bus was back in service for 2 days. I can here the agents conversation when the exercise was over; “Are you sure we have everything? I feel like we’re forgetting something.” And we’re trusting government with our healthcare? Whisky Tango Foxtrot!
The Climate Change Central Planners, by Robert J Murphy, at instituteforenergyresearch.org. Excerpt from the article; “It is an unbelievable act of hubris to suppose that a group of natural scientists and economists, armed with computers, can today make quantitative predictions of how much massive new taxes and draconian regulations will make people better off in the year 2150. And yet this is precisely what today’s central planners do from 9-to-5 in the office.”
Hillary Investigation Enters a Dangerous Phase, by Andrew Napolitano, at lewrockwell.com. Is the FBI just dotting all the I’s and crossing all the T’s? Is the ruling aristocracy trying to figure a way out of indicting the Democrats nominee? Are the Clinton’s trying to bribe someone to take the fall? Will the rule of law prevail; or will the break down of the rule of law continue?
Price Controls May Be On The Way, by Paul-Martin Foss, at mises.org. If fixing the Fed fund rate at 0% since 08 hasn’t worked, why would central planners think price controls would work? Nixon tried wage and price controls in the 70’s. How did that work out?
