Let Them Eat Wheat
The utter disdain in which so-called political elites hold the common man, mere citizen that he is, is well displayed in the phrase “Let them eat cake.”
One would think that such an expression of disdain for the common man, mere citizen that he is, would no longer be uttered by political elites in this day and age, but you would be wrong. Just last year, almost to the day, I pointed out that the FDA embraces the “let them eat cake” philosophy in a post I titled Let Them Eat What WE Say They Can Eat, wherein I pointed out this egregiousness flowing out of the mouths of attorneys for the United States government.
Attorneys for the federal government have argued in a lawsuit pending in federal court in Iowa that individuals have no “fundamental right” to obtain what food they choose.
Today, I note that the United States Department of Justice Solicitor General (Acting), Neal Kumar Katyal, who also previously was supposedly a professor of law at Georgetown Law, is in full agreement with the FDA’s stance that the common man has no right obtain what foods they choose. Neal Katyal, representing the whole power and force of the United States government, states that the common man should eat wheat if the United States government says he should eat wheat.
The acting solicitor general for the United States today claimed in a federal appeals court hearing that Congress has the absolute power to order citizens to purchase consumer goods if lawmakers believe there is a national problem the purchases would address…
“Could they possibly require the purchase of wheat?” he said. “The answer is yes.”
Though Katyal made this egregious statement in arguing for the legality of Obamacare (DeathCare), one must note that these political elite “let them eat cake” dictates are becoming more and more common everyday in the State’s quest for complete power and control over your life.
I do not want cake, wheat or Obamacare (Deathcare). I want freedom and liberty.
