Fascist Soup reports:


Some guy was selling biscuits and gravy out of his house. Savannah PD puts 5 investigators on the case, and arrests the delivery boy. Then interrogates him for several hours under duress.

Praise Pelosi, Praise the Savannah PD, for I am too dumb to buy biscuits and gravy without guns in my face at all times.



This is freedom in Amerika today.

You people wonder why the economy is in shambles?

Take a look at the regulation that is destroying all profitability in business.

Sarbanes Oxley is the worst and most egregious law that destroys what little remains of our private sector economy. Right now the government is responsible for 40% of GDP spending in this country. We no longer have a free market system of private enterprise. We have a system of total fascist tyranny controlled from the top down by a corrupt banking cartel and fascist congress that passes all manner of legislation that hinders competition in the market place.

Praise Mao.

Thats lame bout the grub, I could not get the video to play where I am.

So what did Nasty Nancy do?

Was this not a state government and consequently local PD exercising its powers?

Like I said I can't check the vid, did the Fed get involved?

and how did Sarbenes Ox perpetuate this case?

Thanks

"Let's bust that guy for biscuits and gravy. That's a gateway drug you know. That usually leads to a fried porkchop or something."



On the other hand... operating without a business license and likely no health permit is illegal.

Not if you are a sovereign individual, a Freeman on the Land. Once you enter into contract with the corporation known as the US Government, then they can apply millions of useless stautes, regulations, laws and codes and use these as weapons against you - which they do every single day. I will welcome the day that the corporation goes bankrupt. Shouldn't be too long now, they're already broke and the check kiting will catch up with them soon enough.

What's wrong with selling biscuts? Maybe an educated police officer can explain it to me.

Couldn't stop laughing.

Sounds to me that they could have easily sent someone from the health department to shut down the illegal biscuit and gravy operation.

Talk about a waste of time.

A friend of a cop.. That cop should be fired for listening to his friend and blowing this event up.

Quite true, but not the point being made in the video.

Move to Somalia. It's just what you're looking for. Seriously, no taxes, no regulations, no government breathing down your neck, just you and a few million other free individuals in direct competition for resources and business. What could be better?

G'wan, hop a plane, Mogadishu is the next big thing! Beat the rush!

Wasn't this the act of the state and county which is the expression of a REPUBLIC???

Correct me if I am wrong, did the FED interfere, or was it the state?

OR do you consider them the same?

Because comparing a country that just went through a civil war with a bunch of socialist radical Islamic warlords and has been oppressed by IMF world bank debt is exactly like Amerika.

btw, the informal private sector of the Somali economy has been doing quite well.

Of course, you'd rather have a socialist over-lord putting a gun to your head every time you try to sell some biscuits and gravy because you are incapable carrying out such business deals on your own without the involvement of State sanctioned force.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
That's your response? Really?
Maybe not a bad idea, considering the rest of you sheep are halfway to slaughter and you don't even realize it! Have fun being chattel!


Back on topic - this is another glaring example of government oppression and control being exerted for no good reason. This individual should be permitted to engage in creative enterprise without government interference. And for those of you that would cry about healthcode this or that, always remember the supreme law of commerce is Caveat Emptor!

This is up there with arresting farmers for selling raw milk and levying massive fees and regulations for a dozens chickens.

The government has done everything it can to ensure an idependent life is impossible.

So would you go on a seafood binge tour in Mexico?

The supreme law of food in Mexico is the supreme law of commerce. So would you go on a seafood touring binge in Mexico to point out the genius of this proposal, wash it down with some deregulated agua!

YUM!

If so, I'll chip in on the diapers

Do you plan out sentences in your head before you commit them to text? No? Ah well. Point is.. .Somalia is exactly the sort of free market paradise that people like yourself lust for in America. I say, why wait, it's right there. Airfare's pretty cheap, though I'll bet most tickets are one-way.


Of course, you'd rather have a socialist over-lord putting a gun to your head every time you try to sell some biscuits and gravy because you are incapable carrying out such business deals on your own without the involvement of State sanctioned force.


If by this you mean "I want people selling food to have the health department making sure rats aren't crapping in the gravy" then sure. Public health is kind of a concern for myself and likely most people who don't envision themselves as John Galt.

Now, should the cops have been involved? Probably not. But hey, it's Georgia, well-known for its Right-wing politics and use of state force. Remember? Your team plays their home games there, sunshine.

Exactly what you guys want?

You seem to be ignoring this point

OP, KOZ, etc...

Do we know if the proprietor of this biscuit-and-gravy operation escalated the situation. Is it possible that the proprietor was given several cease and desist notices by the local authorities and decided to disregard the notices and operate anyway? Perhaps there was nothing left for the local authorities to do but arrest the person if the person repeatedly disregarded any less evasive attempt to enforce the law.

With regards to the need for health codes, I am willing to concede that many portions of the health codes may be onerous for proprietors and do little or nothing to protect public health. However, all the law abiding citizens in this area go through the expense of complying with the health codes. If this person is able to operate without complying with the codes, he has an unfair advantage over the law abiding citizens.

What we want is for private individuals to be able to conduct business without 5 billion government regulations getting in the way.

The governments sole purpose is to prosecute and investigate fraud in terms of business deals.

The government has no business telling two private individuals transacting how to go about conducting their business or regulating how a business is run. That's for the market to decide. If people don't like the way a business is run, they will stop buying its products. If the business harms them, they can sue in civil court to shut them down.

No regulations are necessary to accomplish this.

Fraud is already illegal and does not require the government regulating business to prosecute.

The interstate commerce clause of the US Constitution has been liberally read by the Supreme Court since the New Deal to extend to virtually any activity, however small, that could have any affect on interstate commerce or interstate markets. Using this line of reasoning, you could easily argue this guy (and others like him) could have an impact on interstate commerce because interstate travelers may stop by an eat at his establishment, he uses ingredients from other states, or his activities may affect the inter-state biscuit and gravy market.

Did I miss the part of the Constitution that guarantees the right to sell biscuits from your potentially unhealthy home?
What about the local jurisdiction, who were the ones acting here, and the laws the local people allowed to be enacted by the locally elected officials?

Welcome to Savannah, Georgia. Home of the free and land of the biscuit vendors?

Compare the amount of times they got sick eating at this guy's kitchen to eating at a fast food chain...McDonald's chicken should be abolished.
