Silver BearNote:  There will be no post on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day.  Rule Five Friday and the Saturday Gingermageddon will be posted as per usual.

Take a look at what the FDA proposes for rules for restaurant food.  Excerpt:

The Food and Drug Administration plans new rules requiring chain restaurants, movie theaters and other retailers that sell prepared foods to put calorie labels on menus and menu boards. The rules will only apply to establishments that have 20 or more locations.

The rules will be announced on Tuesday.

A sampling of what will be labeled with calorie information — and what won’t — under the new rules:

— Menu items at chain restaurants, including drive-through and take out boards

— Drinks on menus, and soda dispensers

— Some alcoholic beverages on menus

— Most prepared foods in supermarkets, convenience stores

— Concessions at movie theaters, amusement parks that are part of larger chains

— Displays of food, such as pastries, at coffee chains like Starbucks

— Food prepared on site at large retail outlets, such as Target and Costco

Can someone – anyone – point out in the Constitution where the Imperial Federal government is authorized to place these restrictions on privately owned businesses?  All too many seem to forget the Tenth Amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Angry-BearIn simple English:  If the Constitution does not specifically authorize the Imperial Federal government to take a certain action, they may not take said action.  And this kind of meddling in the affairs of privately owned businesses is nowhere to be found.

When will Congress and the Imperial judiciary rediscover the Tenth Amendment?  When they do, maybe we can broach the subject of an alphabet soup of unConstitutional agencies that have been set up in the Imperial City in recent years.
