Mind Boggling

From MK's blog, citing this source, comes this insane bit of news about what it takes to start up an online business in Greece:
...At the health department, they were told that all the shareholders of the company would have to provide chest X-rays, and, in the most surreal demand of all, stool samples....
Bureaucracy run amok. Literally into the muck.


  1. I saw that over at MK's place.

    But don't worry, I'm sure that even more government will make it all better!

  2. It's been happening right here for a long time already.

    Big Brother has been forcibly closing LEMONADE STANDS run by little kids all over the place, because the children didn't buy expensive permits and subject themselves to "restaurant standards set by the state."

    Show some initiative in this sick, increasingly demented society?

    You'll be CRUSHED like a DUNG BEETLE.

    The Oligarchs want to reduce us to NOTHING so we have to BEG for their "protection," THEN they'll REALLY have us.

    The Oligarchs by the way are NOT "Democrats" or even Marxists. They are the shadowy puppeteers who control the money supply, set the value of currencies, own the sources of raw materials, and run huge international corporations that have loyalty to THSI or any OTHER country. The Oligarchs function as a law unto themselves, and they exercise more control over YOUR life than you could ever imagine.

    Doubt this at your peril.

  3. Yep the government will be regulating us to the max the bigger they are the worse it will become so bend over and get ready!

    Mr. AOW can no longer work on cars in our back yard -- because of his physical disabilities, of course.

    But the county has forbidden ANY such activity -- even on one's own car. Once a car is torn down or up on ramps, the county spies (officials and one's own neighbors) descend after 48 hours with county ordinance in hand: "Get that vehicle towed to a garage!"

    Various ordinances have crept in over the last 10 years and continue to creep in -- to the point that a property owner feels as if he is renting from the county. Regulation after regulation!

    I wonder if kids have to get a permit to mow yards. One thing is certain: we can't find kids to hire to do yard work. Yard work folks have to be licensed and overseen by the county.


    When the wheelchair ramp was built here, the county came along to measure. I didn't get a citation for building without a permit, likely because the ADA and because the slope of the ramp conformed to county regulations. But why should I HAVE to conform? The county isn't using the ramp. Mr. AOW and I are!

    When I removed Mr. AOW from the nursing home, county adult services tried to worm its way in here at our house. I rebuffed them. But if I hadn't had a doctor on my side, I'd have been in deep trouble.

  5. Illegal Milk:

    This week the federal government “won” a case in which they were allowed to prosecute someone for breaking something that’s not even a law. And the government has made their position on this issue clear. Try to follow, if you can: If you own a cow, you may milk the cow and drink the milk. However, if you allow someone else to milk the cow and give you the milk, you and they will be jailed. Or, if you milk the cow and give the milk to someone else, you also both shall be jailed. The government says these jailings are, and I’m not kidding, for your protection. Best of all, there is no actual law related to this at all.

    Instead, the alleged crime here is based on a decision by bureaucrats....

    The rest at the above link.

    You can't make this stuff up!

  6. Thanks for the mention Always, just crazy isn't it, we're being beaten down by regulation upon regulation. Mind you, a lot of it is our own damn fault [not us personally], i've lost count of the number of times i've heard so-called Conservatives squawking for the government to - do something!

    A lot of the meddling is in response from the sheeple crying for someone else to do something.
