Tyranny of the Day is a feature where I attempt to point out a few of the more egregious examples of government gone astray. These posts tend to draw the most heated discussions so I heartily invite you to check back regularly for new updates in order to throw in your two cents.
We live in some scary times. The so-called bastion of freedom known as America is practically unrecognizable. Whistleblowers seek refuge in communist nations, criminal charges can be filed against federal employees who do not turn in “suspicious” co-workers, policies in direct violation of the Constitution are shrugged off as being trivial, and countless additional events tighten the grip of the state over the lives of individuals. Join in the pursuit of educating the masses to the outrageous events being perpetrated against mankind in the name of “security” and “justice.”
Back in 2005, magician Marty Hahne was busted by the USDA for not having a license for his rabbit. The back story alone is enough to make you shake your head in wonder, but his recent letter from the agency is even more incredulous.
“My USDA rabbit license requirement has taken another ridiculous twist. I just received an 8 page letter from the USDA, telling me that by July 29 I need to have in place a written disaster plan, detailing all the steps I would take to help get my rabbit through a disaster, such as a tornado, fire, flood, etc. They not only want to know how I will protect my rabbit during a disaster, but also what I will do after the disaster, to make sure my rabbit gets cared for properly.”
One supporter suggested a simple note attached to the rabbit’s collar: “In case of disaster, cook and eat.”
