I don’t know why people tolerate these perennial scumbags. You know; all those statist politician parasites on the planet who’ve been feeding off our blood sweat and tears – spoiling the liberty, property and happiness of humanity -- since the beginning of civilizations.
They’re a menace to society. They ruin businesses; wreak havoc upon commerce and prosperity; tell us what we can and can’t do with our lives; interfere constantly and incessantly with our wellbeing. The meddling never ends.
Consider for example the United States House of Representatives. They just passed a bill which will cost Boeing aircraft company, its employees, shareholders, and yes, the people of the United States of America; you and me, $25 billion dollars in valuable international business.
The company just reached a lucrative deal with Iran Airlines for the sale of several passenger planes. We’re not talking about war planes here just passenger planes. But the statist politicians in Washington want to kill that deal. They don’t want any Americans to do business with Iran. They don’t care if that results in other countries – Russia perhaps – getting the benefits. After all, it’s not money out of their pockets. It’s simply politics which will hurt Boeing and the rest of us.
Or how about the new mayor of the city of Turin Italy; she tells the hapless inhabitants under her jurisdiction what they should and should not eat. That’s right. This statist politician doesn’t like meat. She’s a vegetarian. So she thinks that since she’s been elected mayor that gives her the authority to dictate what her subjects eat.
Can you imagine that; a mayor who claims authority over eating habits? Sure you can. New York mayor Michael Bloomberg claimed exactly the same authority over the citizens of his town.
Turin’s new Mayor Chiara Appendino and her anti-establishment Five Star Movement is advocating for plant-based foods as an alternative to the authentic meat dishes that have inspired cooking in northern Italy for centuries.
The 32-year-old statist pledged that the promotion of vegetarian and vegan diets will be a “priority” in her administration -- an unprecedented move in Italian government.
No more spaghetti and meatballs in her town.
“The promotion of vegan and vegetarian diets is a fundamental act in safeguarding our environment, the health of our citizens and the welfare of our animals,” explains her five-year political manifesto. Her administration plans to work to educate the city’s school children about the drawbacks of meat consumption in hopes of leaving a lasting impression on future generations to come.
Yes, just more proof that statist politicians are a menace to society
