America Is Becoming Old Russia

by Maxi


For a long time now I’ve been telling my husband that America is turning into the Old Russia. We are losing our rights day by day.

For years we had to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. I was always against that law. When the seat belt law came along I refused to wear one at first it made me so mad. We should not be forced to wear these.

Now we have the Food Police. Fast food places are not allowed to use certain kinds of fats. Do they think we don’t know fast foods are fattening? Those fats make the food taste good and we should have the right to eat them if we want.

Don’t even get me started about smoking. I quit smoking nine years ago, but will fight for smoker’s rights. Do you know if you own a business you’re not allowed to let the customers smoke in your place? What’s up with that? Is the government paying your bills?

This one really gets me riled. By 2012 the round incandescent light bulb will be phased out and the ugly curly fluorescent must take its place. Says who? The United States Government. This is America and the government dictates what light bulb I have to use? I mean, we’re talking a *#~%& light bulb.

There have been stories on the news here in Florida  about people ending up in the emergency room with headaches because of these new bulbs. Besides, these bulbs contain mercury even if it’s a little. Mercury is toxic to every living thing.

Problems of improper disposal have already begun. In Portland, Oregon a company wrongly dumped over 8,000 pounds of broken fluorescent bulbs.

Pay attention folks—the government is now moving at warp speed to take control of our lives. This is no joke!
