Feds Cracking Down on Garage Sales

We all saw this one coming.

If you're planning a garage sale or organizing a church bazaar, you'd best beware: You could be breaking a new federal law. As part of a campaign called Resale Roundup, the federal government is cracking down on the secondhand sales of dangerous and defective products.

After reading the first few

After reading the first few lines of the article, I understand:

"Its for the children!

Secondhand sellers now must keep abreast of recalls for thousands of products, some of them stretching back more than a decade, to stay within the bounds of the law.

He's the man.

Yes and this is not for the children

this is strictly aimed at destruction of existing consumer goods so that new ones are bought. We need to face the fact that this government absolutely without question wants us to continue to go deeper into debt, buy newer and newer useless junk, and turn over all private functions and property to them......including our children, our bodies, and our minds. I spend my days nauseated as of late. Our country is full of liberals who have the minds of teenage girls with their daddies credit cards. They buy what they want, they think they deserve to fullfill all their whims, they think the bills will never come do. They think it is fine to bankrupt their father making donations to "a good cause". Then they cry and demand assistance when their father tells them that they are losing their house. I puke when I think of the liberal plague that has overtaken this country and destroyed our monetary system erase personal responsiblity and liberty. I blame both parties and the people themselves.

That's why I love gold

I don't care if I make one cent off it, I don't care how much it's value fluctuates. They can manipulate it temporarily, they can malign it's ownership, they can call us fools, but nothing will change the fact that I am holding real money, a real commodity chose by the markets of the world for thousands of years. I have savings as long as I own gold and that makes me a little more soveriegn. It assures that they will have to take my life to take the product of my labor.

I wish they'd be so pertinacious

about keeping our children safe when those poisoness lead paint coated products first come into the country from China.
