FEE has posted a new article by Bob Ewing about the government’s insatiable appetite to control every aspect of people’s lives – in this case, about how we make a living. Did you know that:

  • In Louisiana it is illegal to sell and arrange flowers without permission from the government.
  • Mercedes Clemens was threatened with thousands of dollars in fines and criminal prosecution unless she stopped . . . massaging horses.
  • In Texas all computer-repair technicians must now become private investigators.
  • A new law in Philadelphia will make it a crime in the coming weeks to talk about the Liberty Bell for money without the government’s permission.

There are more, but you’ll have to go read the article for yourself. I need some FDA-approved, triple-sealed, child-proof, stomach-acid reducers … or maybe a glass of wine.
