Candy coated popcorn, peanuts and a Prize! That’s what you get with HCR!

Thanks to Woodhull for the title.

The latest gem from Nancy Pelosi:

You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.

But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.

I wonder what’s sooo exciting about it.

If you read between the line, what does “prevention, prevention, prevention” mean? Well it means they are going to control your diet, either through outright bans or taxes. Sugar tax, Soda tax, Chocolate tax, Fat tax (I mean taxed per pound you weight), Ban Tea, etc. Of course to the Progressive, these are all for the greater good and are okay. To anyone that values liberty and freedom, these are encroachments by the State and no different than the State telling you, whom you can marry. Of course, I can’t wait to hear the, “we are doing it already so this doesn’t matter” argument from the Left.

So what is so exciting is all the new laws they can pass, so everyone has to live their lives by what politicians like Pelosi say they should. So what happens when an “evil” Republican comes in to power and uses those powers to push their own agenda? Oh then they call it Fascist. Do those liberal progressives even know what logic is?

    In Washington State they’ve already hiked the tax on candy (any “confection”), soda, bottled water in this cycle. In our state we pay no sales tax on food. I wonder how long it will take before it is a felony to “cook” candy in your own kitchen using the common “food” items like sugar, chocolate, eggs, cream and butter from the store — I’m envisioning something like “Cops” busting my mom as she is bringing her batch of caramel to the “crack” stage on the stove.

    I hate born again liberals. They don’t believe in an after life so they are trying to extend their lives through all this “right” living. Next thing you know they’ll start building overpasses at all street corners just to avoid being hit by that fateful bus.

    forgot to add…

    We live in the heart of indigoland — so uber-liberal it makes me gag (like most of America, our community has undergone the gentrification that displaces working class people and their families).

    Next halloween I am going to give out pelosi’s quote, above, on slips of paper rather than confections. That’ll shut ’em up. Let them explain it to their kids.

    I’m planning to go into the bootleg chocolate business. My ancestors ran rum, so I figure it’s in my genes. We’ll have chocolate speakeasys and make fudge in the bath tub.

    Seriously, if these fools want to raise revenue, we just need an ethics tax on congressmen. Every time one of our elected leaders wastes the public’s time with one of their sex scandals, we fine them half a million. We’ll have the nat’l debt fixed in no time.

    “…we just need an ethics tax on congressmen.” Let’s file that in our “nice to have” file. One would think that some sort of money fine would be leveled on someone who is in a position of upholding public trust and breaking that trust over a tax increase on candy manufacturers but that’s where we are, isn’t it.
