Leviathan…if only

This is truly indescribable.  The feds are going to go after garage sales for selling recalled toys.  It will particularly effect Goodwill and the Salvation Army.  Of course, why would we ever want the needy to look towards private charity.

Gibbons said the nonprofit group was accustomed to inspectors from the Consumer Product Safety Commission making unannounced visits to its stores.

Scott Wolfson, a spokesman for the agency, said it wouldn’t be dispatching bureaucratic storm troopers into private homes to see whether people were selling recalled products from their garages, yards or churches.

“We’re not looking to come across as being heavy-handed,” he said. “We want to make sure that everybody knows what the rules of engagement are to help spur greater compliance, so that enforcement becomes less of an issue. But we’re still going to enforce.”

Got it.  We won’t send in the stormtroopers.  Yet.  Just comply and all will be well. See, it is all “for the children”.

There’s a word for this: totalitarian.

Actually, sometimes there are no words for this.  It transcends everything you could even imagine.  Of course, with this current group in DC, dear leader at the helm, leviathan will be an understatement.
