First Cigarettes, Now Bacon and Eggs

You knew it was coming.

First they came for the cigarettes, then Hank Williams Jr. got knocked off Monday Night Football for being politically incorrect, and now they're coming for the butter.

Denmark, on October 1, put a $1.29-per-pound tax on all foods that hit 2.3 percent in saturated fats. That's on top of a 25 percent surcharge imposed last year by Denmark's food police on all ice cream, candy, sugar, soft drinks and chocolate.

Why Obama Lawyers couldn’t answer Constitutional Questions

http://1787network.com

Last week’s historic 3 day Supreme Court debate on Obamacare made one thing abundantly clear. The Obama administration is unable to answer basic constitutional questions and does not want nor consider the fact that there are limits on what the Government is allowed to do. Whether a liberal or conservative justice asked the basic question: If Congress can do this, what can’t it do? Obama’s lawyers had no reasonable answer. Fundamentally, Obama and his administration, do not grasp liberty and freedom and the basis for the American experiment in self-rule.

Sen. Sanders: Dental 'crisis' affecting millions, Need Gov solution!

http://www.necn.com

Heather Getty of East Fairfield, Vt. can barely make it through her work day free of pain.

"I have a regular toothache probably a few times a week, every week," she said. "And I just take ibuprofen."

For more than a decade, the family center case worker and teen mom educator has needed her impacted wisdom teeth out, but can't afford it. "Dentistry's become a luxury," she sighed.

Getty said her insurance covers cleanings, but the deductibles for surgery are too much for the mother of four to pay. "We're the working poor," she added.
