8. UP (If I can use a touch of the familliar) Our local public TV station channel eight
Edited on Fri Jun-13-08 12:33 PM by truedelphi
Has been taken over by a young revolutionary.

A couple of nights ago he broadcast a TV show whose moderator discussed how come things are changing so fast, and not for the better.

Here is the story -

On the Federal level, in legislative terms, Our country is governed by three things:

Acts - which require a two thirds vote in the Senate.
Agreements - which require a one half approval in the Senate

And regulations - which can control every guldarn facet of some major part of our lives - and they are left up to the whim and "imagination" of whoever is in charge of an agency.

Right now, organic farmers are suffering under a slew of regulations, including a regulation that requires them to bulldoze under an entire field of organic produce if some ag inspecter detects, say a bird landing in the field where the crops are!!
