Out of control government and a large part of it are all the boards, commissions and what not, those elected have allowed to be created and given powers WAY above what they should have.
And now lord over those whom pay for this abuse with taxes , fees and fines.
They use intimidation, threats, raids and fines to get us to toe the line…and do what some idiot appointed functionary thinks is best for us..
So someone writes about his success at dieting and improving himself and telling others how he did so…and gets smacked and threatened.
In January, Cooksey received a call from the director of the nutrition board telling him he was not allowed to offer nutrition advice without a license and that his website was being investigated. He was also told that if he did not comply with the “suggestions” in a 19-page report, his website could be shut down and he could be sentenced to up to 120 days in jail.
The first page of the report shows Cooksey responding to an email he received from a person who is concerned about a friend that has diabetes. In the response he says, “Your friend must first and foremost obtain and maintain normal blood sugars.”
The official hand wrote a note in the column saying “assessing and advising requires a license.”
When Cooksey provided a list of what he eats as part of his diet, he was told, “It is acceptable to provide just this information, but when you start recommending it directly to people you speak to or write to you, you are now providing diabetic counseling which requires a license.”
Because of? Physicians and nutritionists worried they were going to lose business and dollars? Is that it? Not the fact the he was successful and sharing with others. But that they were taken out of the picture and it was shown that maybe folks could take care of themselves, live healthier lifestyles, there fore diminishing those physicians and nutritionists?
Licensing, regulations, fees, permits, just ways to control and road blocks for others, providing funding for government appointed officials and excuses for same to stay in positions of power or authority.
And in reading the article I found this..
Under Obamacare, the FDA has determined that a person’s own body is considered a drug and subject to regulation.
Now does that not open a whole new can of worms and how the government will use abuse this to get the sheeple of this country to mindlessly do as told..
