To My Readers, I found a very cool place on The Heritage Foundation web site.  It's called Tales of the Red Tape.  It itemizes the most egregious Red Tape items, things that will cost consumers and taxpayers and businesses millions of dollars, prime examples of Government intrusion into our lives.  Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, all will make you shake your head and realize Obama's regulators are imbeciles.  I will bring these to you periodically as we wade our way through the lunacy.  

Tales of the Red Tape #1: We See Dead People

Images of bloodless corpses and gasping babies would have to cover at least 50 percent of each cigarette pack under regulation proposed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Although smoking rates have declined steadily for the past 40 years—down 52 percent since 1965—and every kindergartner can recite the evils of tobacco use, the FDA claims that current warnings are “ineffective.”
According to the agency, there’s a “worldwide consensus” that tobacco health warnings should feature pictures of dead people. At least that’s the practice in the progressive places cited by the agency, including the Cook Islands, Djibouti, Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Latvia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mongolia, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, and Romania.
Given teens’ current obsession with all things zombie, the gruesome images will likely prove highly popular as collector’s items.
