since so many of our really beneficial regulations have been slashed and our economy, safety, and quality of life have simultaneously diminished, I am in favor of putting as many of them back as possible yes.

Thanks for your honest response. However it's sad to see that some people are more than willing to relinquish their freedoms to the government and allow the same government to take care of them. But there are those of us that believe we don't need someone else making my decisions for me. I can raise my family and myself without some government bureaucrat telling me how to live my life.

Yes the freedom to die young and poor!

How do you feel about the "farmers" getting fifty plus billion dollars for nothing because of tRUmps failed trade war? Are they all relinquishing their freedoms so that daddy tRUmp can take care of them?

and by the way, aren't you and your wife on Medicare? you realize that's a government program right? I am paying for your healthcare with my tax dollars, did you relinquish your freedoms to the government when you accepted those benefits?

Boomers need to just shut up and go away already. We should make a law that nobody over the age of 65 should be able to hold office or vote. All of our problems would be solved. Its not your world anymore.

If you really dig into a subject such as meat safety, you may understand what I am talking about in a different light.

Actually yes. But also the freedom to pursue happiness and make something of yourself. Everyone in this country is born with opportunity. It is how they respond to conditions that determine their avenue in life. The Constitution guarantee's everyone opportunity, not outcomes. That is up to the individual.

I am not in favor of it. Never have been in favor of handouts to any group.

Nope. You must have me confused with someone else. We are both employed full time with adequate insurance (as adequate as possible after the passage of Obamacare, but that is a different topic).

Ahh. There we go. When you can't win an argument on the merits, just scream and yell and try to shut the other person up through intimidation. You have the leftist playbook down pretty well I see.

Obviously you have never worked in an industry that is beholden to government sanctions. I have.

I had a summer job while in college at an egg processing plant. There was always an FDA employed employee that would periodically check eggs as they passed by off of the end of the processing lines. At a certain frequency, he was supposed to pull a sample from the line and run some tests. That is when he was there and not out chasing the skirts of some of the female employees.

As I recall, when he was doing his job, he never found any issues because the company was more worried about people getting sick and a lawsuit coming their way than they were of the FDA inspector.
