In their ongoing quest to justify their existence, bureaucrats at the FDA have decreed three makers of cigarettes which are additive-free and natural can no longer call them additive-free and natural, because it may give consumers the impression the cigarettes "present a lower risk" of tobacco related illness.
From the FDA:
Today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued warning letters to three tobacco manufacturers — ITG Brands LLC, Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company Inc., and Sherman’s 1400 Broadway N.Y.C. Ltd. — who describe their cigarettes on product labeling as “additive-free” and/or “natural.” The warning letters are for violations of section 911 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act)....

The action marks the first time the FDA has used its authority under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009 to pursue regulatory action regarding the use of “additive-free” or “natural” claims on tobacco product labeling.
“The FDA’s job is to ensure tobacco products are not marketed in a way that leads consumers to believe cigarettes with descriptors like 'additive-free' and 'natural' pose fewer health risks than other cigarettes, unless the claims have been scientifically supported,” said Mitch Zeller, J.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products. “This action is a milestone, and a reminder of how we use the tools of science-based regulation to protect the U.S. public from the harmful effects of tobacco use.”
The FD&C Act, amended by the Tobacco Control Act, gives the FDA the authority to regulate cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco. It also created a process for the FDA to evaluate requests from companies seeking to market their products as modified risk.
Under section 911(b)(1) of the FD&C Act,

The family of Aurora, Colorado theater shooting victim Jessica Ghawi, 24, is not entitled to cash in on their daughter's murder by suing four ammunition dealers from which James Holmes purchased ammo, a federal judge has ruled.
To the contrary, the judge ordered them to pay attorney's fees to the victims of their frivolous lawsuit to the tune of over $200,000.

Government regulations have already ruined our dishwashers. The need to wash dishes twice or pre-wash is already an entrenched reality due to previous regulations which pushed washer makers to use only a paltry 6.5 gallons a wash, now the bureaucrats at the Department of Energy want washers to use only a pathetic 3.1 gallons, and the industry is freaking out.
From The Hill:
Companies that make dishwashers are warning that the Obama administration’s latest e... (more)

An innocent woman in need frantically flags you down, begging you for a ride.
Despite not going through the Uber app, she tells you she's in a hurry, asks you to book the ride on your own phone and begs you to drive "across the street" to her friend.
When you comply, all the sudden you're surrounded by a gang of cops who accuse you of acting as a "bandit cab" driver -- someone who takes money under the table for rides, rather than funnel cash through Uber and in... (more)
The 'Recycling' Scam Falls Apart

Since it's inception, recycling has always been a scam. With the exception of aluminum, all recycled products require more energy to be "recycled" than to be made fresh. Nonetheless, governments and environmentalists have profited off such schemes as recycling plants serve as both a handout to politically connected corporations and a jobs scheme for opportunist politicians. The scam is finally now coming to an end as the economic reality is setting in.

Gun Law Should Apply Only to Commoners, Not Cops, Ohio Supremes Rule

A paranoid trigger happy cop who shot an unarmed motorcyclist in the back after he cooked up a fantasy the biker was attempting to pull a gun on him should not have been held to account under an anti-gun law mandating extra punishment for use of a gun during the commission of a crime, because despite the law as passed saying it applied to everyone, it should only apply to commoners, so says the majority on the Ohio Supreme Court.
