This is the sort of idiocy that has given us the new aristocracy of capitol hill “royalty”.

The powers of this self-expanded royalty have their powers limited by the constitution, the result is we no longer teach the constitution to school children. No such things as civics and history only the amaphorous “Social Studies”. The Post Office is specifically authorized by the constitution but has been privatized because of “public sector” unionism, something that even the consummate socialist (he used to call mass-murderer Stalin “Uncle Joe”) FDR thought was an extremely bad idea, however however he didn’t forsee them becoming such an important funding mechanism for his party.

May’s biggest busybodies are taking it to poker players and teen tanners, but the nation’s top nag has lovers of pink-in-the-middle burgers seeing red.

In a stunning blow to all that is juicy and delicious, the Tar Heel state actually prohibits restaurants from serving rare or medium-rare hamburgers.

And if this crime against meat freedom seems especially un-American, keep in mind that it comes from the same state that once banned Old Glory at public rallies.

Last month Reason.tv recognized 2010’s Nanny of the Year, and now it’s onto a brand new year of nagging nannies.

This month’s slate features heartland regulators targeting drinking games and New Jersey educators drug testing 11-year-olds.

But top dishonors go to the New York pol who’s pushing a bill that would make it illegal to cross the street while iPodding, cell-phoning or being otherwise engaged with an electronic gadget.

Andrew Klavan reveals the strategy used to silence the criticism and ideas of conservative thinkers.

 

When the Washington D.C. City Council loosened the rules governing food trucks back in 2007, it led to a culinary explosion in the nation’s capital, enabling District lunch-goers to chow down on bulgogi tacos, pork banh mi, gourmet pizza, and more.

Never known as a place for retail innovation, D.C.’s roving lunch scene is starting to compare favorably with such culinary hotspots as New York and Los Angeles, which has been cracking down on its legendary food trucks via a bevy of arbitrary regulations.

D.C.’s bricks-and-mortar restaurants have done their part to lobby for rules that would hobble the new competition, including pushing for a law that would keep food trucks out of entire neighborhoods.

In December 2010, Reason.tv grabbed lunch from the Red Hook Lobster Pound, one of the District’s best-known food truck, to find out why customers were willing to stand in line for an hour in 30-degree weather and fork over $15 for lobster rolls.
