This is the problem with the government getting involved in your food, your health care, and your problems with bullies. Eventually, they get involved with your speech and your freedom.
This is where we are headed. We are going to polite ourselves right out of our freedoms. At the end of the boundless government quest to safeguard us from every ill effect of our own behavior or of others, we will regulate ourselves into a state of helplessness and silence.
The Obama administration exists to create new regulations and add ever increasing doses of government to our lives. It is staffed by people whose outlook is entirely to protect what they perceive as a pathetic citizenry from capitalism and other potentially harmful things – not to abet free enterprise and risk taking.
The layers of safety are added piecemeal and, because they make us feel safer, become almost impossible to remove. And anyone who tries to roll them back becomes guilty of trying to hurt people. And so we move inexorably toward the comfort of government “protection,” which feels nice. Until the government decides to make us uncomfortable.
