"Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficial. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greater dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding." - Louis Brandeis

E M E R G E N C Y . . .
So much is at steak stake this election, and now, its getting SERIOUS:
"Maybe the Mayans saw this coming in their end of the world prophesies. Those who pray at the temple of bacon could see their world crumbling to bacon bits this winter..." Hey, freedom of religion...and it is an altar, not a temple.
"The trade group urged supermarkets to pay pig farmers a fair price for the meat to help cover the drought-related losses..." This is not a 'fair price' matter, it is an access matter. Access to bacon, we need to keep the flow of bacon...flowing. Comprehensive bacon reform!
"The surge came as farmers scaled down their herds as feeding the animals became increasingly expensive..." Was Obama for the surge, or against it? What if we feed the pigs more bacon...whoa, I think I may have something there.
Will this be covered in the debates? Is there polling on this? I don't even know where the candidates stand on this - I seriously doubt Obama eats bacon. Romney, probably has it sprinkled on things, but I don't see him picking it up with his hands. Either way, I think it was William Howard Taft who said it best, "I like a little bacon, okay?"
