19 Signs that America is a controll freak nation! (Insane laws)

Michael Snyder, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Do you think that you are free? Most Americans would still probably answer "yes" to that question, but is that really the case?

In the film Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson stated that "everything is illegal in Massachusetts". Well, the same could pretty much be said for the United States as a whole.

Our lives are governed by millions of laws, rules and regulations and more are being piled on all the time. In fact, 40,000 new laws just went into effect in January.

Every single new law restricts your freedom just a little bit more. The truth is that America has become a crazy control freak nation where virtually everything that we do is highly regulated. You have probably broken multiple laws today that you don't even know exist.

We have all become criminals and lawbreakers because almost everything is illegal at this point. Our politicians are convinced that they are "making life better" by piling gigantic mountains of laws onto our backs, and law enforcement authorities are convinced that they are helping society by "cracking down on crime", but the reality is that our liberties and our freedoms are being strangled by all of this government oppression. This is not the way that America is supposed to work.

Yes, every society needs laws. But the laws should be short enough and simple enough that everybody can read them and understand them.


In America today, there is no possible way that any of us could ever read all of the laws that apply to us. Most of us just live our daily lives and try to do the "right" thing. But there is no guarantee that men with guns will not show up at your door one evening because of some obscure regulation that you have broken.

The following are 19 signs that America has become a crazy control freak nation where almost everything is illegal.

#1 One California town is actually considering making it illegal to smoke in your own backyard.

#2 In Louisiana, a church was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have a permit to do so.

#3 In the United States it is illegal to operate a train that does not have an "F" painted on the front. Apparently without that "F" we all might not know where the front of the train is.

#4 In many U.S. states is it now illegal to collect rain that falls from the sky on to your own property.

#5 In America today it is illegal to milk your cow and sell the milk to your neighbor. If you do this, there is a good chance that federal agents will raid your home at the crack of dawn.

#6 In Washington D.C. it is illegal not to recycle cat litter.

#7 It is illegal to give a tour of the monuments in Washington D.C. without a license.

#8 In the United States it is illegal to sell natural cures for cancer -- even if they work.

#9 In the state of Massachusetts it is illegal to deface a milk carton.

#10 In the state of Alabama, bear wrestling is completely illegal.

#11 In Fairbanks, Alaska it is illegal to give alcoholic beverages to a moose.

#12 In Lake Elmo, Minnesota it is illegal to sell pumpkins or Christmas trees that are grown outside city limits.

#13 There is a federal law that makes it illegal to be "annoying" on the Internet.

#14 If you register with a false name on MySpace or Facebook you could potentially "spend five years in federal prison".

#15 In Hazelwood, Missouri it is illegal for little girls to sell girl scout cookies in the front yards of their own homes.

#16 All over the United States lemonade stands run by children are being shut down because they do not have the proper permits.

#17 In Florida, it is illegal to bring a plastic butter knife to school.

#18 In San Juan Capistrano, California it is illegal to hold a home Bible study without a "conditional use permit".

#19 In the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania it is illegal to make even a single dollar from a blog unless you buy a $300 business license.

Sadly, this list of crazy laws and ridiculous regulations could be thousands long.

We are a nation run by a bunch of control freaks who do not care about our liberties and our freedoms.

Every once in a while, John Stossel does some really great reporting. An example of this is posted below. In this 40-minute video, Stossel goes into great detail about how almost everything is illegal in America today. In particular, the first 20 minutes are absolutely excellent. If you have not seen this yet, I highly encourage you to check it out.

Re: 19 Signs that America is a controll freak nation! (Insane laws)

This fucking pisses me off, all these stupid fucking laws are created to prevent the minority that commit crime & create security,safety & peace of mind for the weak,yet the other 95% of the population that do the right thing are tarred with the same brush and are subjected to these invasive breaches of your civil liberties.

Also there's the laws that are created to protect the corporations greedy interest and to keep the corporate oligopoly going and to shutdown any smaller threat to their empire, its ok for them to steal off you but not the other way around.

The government has gotta go!! and the corporate financial backing from faceless men that pull the strings.

Great post. I see it happening more and more in the US everyday. But people are getting more and more fed up with government control and intervention and it's only a matter of time before the people fight back.

Sad thing is that one of our most prized freedom or rights is the right to vote and too many people don't take advantage of it.

Voting out all the incumbents would be a good sign that the people have had enough. Then all the political hacks can all go back to being ahole lawyers and live off the pension the secured while in office

No, they're not. A resident from the town complained to his council; the council are not taking it seriously. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.1029737

The rest are just old laws that are never enforced - please find me examples of when these have ever been enfroced - that need decriminalising, but the legislature has more important things to do, than to decriminalise giving alcoholic beverages to a moose.

FFS who cares?

It's illegal to eat mince pies on Christmas Day in England... but you don't see police officers arresting people for it.

Common sense much...
