(Tyler O’neil) South Carolina Congressman Mick Mulvaney attacked the rampant government corruption involved in the high pricing of EpiPen Auto-Injectors at a House panel on Wednesday, telling the woman at the heart of the controversy, “You’ve asked for it.”

“You’ve been in these hallways to ask us to make people buy your stuff,” Mulvaney declared, tearing into Heather Bresch, the CEO of pharmaceutical giant Mylan, the company behind the EpiPen. “I think there’s laws in eleven states now that require schools to have epinephrin in some immediately deliverable fashion. You’ve lobbied us to make the taxpayer buy your stuff.”

My Commentary: Government-established and protected monopolies are for the “common good,” you selfish fuck-face… Now, shut up, and pay your “fair share” of taxes for these helpful “services,” or you’ll be abducted and thrown in a cage!

(David IngramMassachusetts is preparing to levy a 5-cent fee per trip on ride-hailing apps such as Uber and Lyft and spend the money on the traditional taxi industry, a subsidy that appears to be the first of its kind in the United States.

Republican Governor Charlie Baker signed the nickel fee into law this month as part of a sweeping package of regulations for the industry.

Ride services are not enthusiastic about the fee.

Discussing State Extortion Racket’s Continuation in Disenfranchising Home Businesses

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post , “Home Businesses Continue to Be Disenfranchised By State Extortion Racket“…

Dennise Cruz is being extorted by the State of Texas for selling homemade food to her neighbors

Rayn: Only government and big business can create jobs, lady! What are you? Too lazy to get REAL one, or something? What if everyone were to just start providing services to their neighbors without being extorted with licensing and permit fees, and without being weighed down by a host of arbitrary restrictions to peaceful activity? It would be ANARCHY!

(Matt Agorist) Carrollton, TX — In modern day police state, USA, exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the state gets their cut. So, even though a Carrollton mother was “stunned” to find a warrant issued for her arrest for selling tamales to her neighbors — it was to be expected.

This week, Dennise Cruz was shocked to receive a yellow postcard from the City of Carrollton stating that if she doesn’t immediately submit to their extortion demands, then she would be kidnapped and locked in a cage.

“That has to be wrong. I don’t have any tickets under my name. That’s just my first reaction. Never would have I thought, tamales,” said Cruz in an interview with CBS DFW. “To know that somebody can be arrested over that, that to me is unbelievable.”.

Now, pay the penalty for you “crime,” or go to directly to jail!
