These are just 2 examples today that I have seen that are absolutely ridiculous! Politicians wonder why we don’t like them much but they propose such stupid ideas and make stupid comments and they just don’t get it! If they wouldn’t clog the legislature with stupid and unnecessary crap they might actually do something that would help instead of stop progress!
I of course did not add Bloomberg’s idiocy because I wrote about him earlier. Another one I happened to see was one from OK in an article, in a magazine from my husbands work about food maintenance, that he was introducing a bill about not using Human Fetuses for R&D in food. Now first off the FDA has never even heard of the concept and second off if there would be any genetics testing for farm animals they would not use Human Fetuses they would use the species they are looking at! DUH!! How stupid can you be unless this is just a way to bring fear where none is needed!
The idiocy needs to stop! Yes these are just a few but really it happens all the time. When a bill of any kind tries to go through there are those that use it as an opportunity to get something they want even if it goes completely against the purpose of the bill or even nothing at all to do with it. Some of the added things are as simple as changing a couple of words to actually asking for money for their state for a park or museum or trees but, now remember these are not small amounts of money they want for this stuff, they are asking for millions. You know the so called earmarks which should not even be an option. I should not have to take several hours to read through a bill because of all the crap and I sure as heck don’t want to read a bunch of stupid bills that should not even be tried much less pass!
Just once I would really like most of our politicians to pause and think before they open their mouth or write things down, because if they did then most would not sound so stupid!
This makes absolutely no sense!
First people were angry that so much food was going to waste and thrown out from day old bread to leftovers from large meals from hotels and churches. Now after years of donating food to help those in need some idiot decides that they cannot accept it because there may be too much salt in it! Are you kidding me???? I doubt very much that those in need that go to these shelters actually care where this food has come from but are grateful for the ones that donate it. No, I do not know how a city shelter is run, but I would assume that anyway they could save money would be great!
People want to help yet they are stopped by the most ridiculous rules at times that it is just stupid! I saw this while at therapy today and my therapist agrees that it has to be one of the most ridiculous things he has heard too in a long time! After I got home I of course I had to look up anything I could and am shocked that this is actually happening, today, in this country!
I always thought it was ignorant to create a “Food Police” task force to basically tell people how and what to eat! Doesn’t this seem like a little too much government involvement? I am very happy not to live in NYC at this time, but I really don’t like big cities much. I have delivered food to homeless shelters and have volunteered at several and have volunteered at church Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for those in need. I know we do not have a super high homeless rate here but we do have families and elderly that do not have the resources for some things. These are non profit and not city or state run, although a couple have gotten grants to help through the state but they do not run them.
If the shelters are city run then does that mean city taxes are used to fund them? If they are then I would definitely protest city hall and fight this stupid idea of theirs including this so called task force! If the shelter is run through donations I would worry that because of this people will not donate money if the food donations are not allowed!
The only time that there was ever a stop on donations here was a couple of years ago during deer hunting when they were concerned with some issues with ammo. It was lifted quickly after they found no other problem and that is great because not only are there several peope who donate the meat because they are only hunting for trophy but they do not want the meat to go to waste. Others donate up to half of their meat to shelters or the food bank after processing which helps alot at that time of year.
This mayor is a fool if I ever saw one! Stupid, stupid, stupid!
