Health Department Raids Community Picnic and Destroys Food

This is one of those love/hate stories.  I love it when the government goes after the liberal elite organic crowd.  They’re so certain that big government is better and regulators only go after evil businessmen.  That said, I really hate to hear about big government crushing innocent small business owners.  I’m even more disappointed that this happened in Nevada, which I tend to think of as one of the more freedom-loving states but they did elect Harry Reid (over and over) so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

In short, an organic farm had a private event, was forced to get a permit, then was raided by big brother, which forced them to destroy all the food in situ.  Soon we won’t be able to invite friends over for dinner…

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
