Government Regulation & Interest Rates (L55)

Government regulation is law, (or laws) that dictate how a business is allowed operate. Implementing each and every one of these regulations costs money; millions and millions of dollars of it. When the government gets low on funds, they have a few options – all immoral and coercive, but options none the less. The most commonly chosen of which would be to rack up taxes; so not only are needlessly restrictive regulations being forced upon every business, but the money stolen from that very same businesses’ employees is being used to fund this very demise.
Interest rates are the outcome of market supply and demand; they display and guide producers as well as consumers. However in a government regulated market, there are false interest rates due to price floors and ceilings. The federal funds rate distorts market outcomes, and between the buying and selling of securities, bank interest rates can be forced both up and down.
In short, all government regulation screws with the market. All government regulation is deceiving and distorting of true market statistics.
One regulation in particular that I thought was quite a gem came about in January of 2010. Being a Massachusetts native myself, I was intrigued and saddened. “New Tooth Brushing Regulations to Take Affect.” Really? Come on… The regulation states that any child who consumes a meal (or spends more than 4 hours) in daycare is mandated to brush their teeth (although parents can opt out of this). Now, I know what you’re thinking- there’s worse things out there that the government is doing, why is this suddenly so concerning? Well, the answer is found directly in the ingredients of this recipe for disaster; fluoride. Not only has this wrongfully branded neurotoxin been found to have negative and harmful affects on the body when ingested or applied topically, but it has also been linked to lower IQ’s in children, and even brain damage. According to an interview with worker Nicole Chan at a Needham, MA daycare center, “We’re providing the toothbrushes, the holders, the cases and the toothpastes, as well,” which guarantees folks, that fluoride is included in your child’s state mandated health package. Dr. Maria Georgaklis, a pediatric dentist who works at Cleveland Circle Dental Associates says “parents should embrace the regulations” (WCVB). We the government as a coercive and violent organization believe we can raise your children better than you can; embrace that. We are going to pump your children full of fluoride contaminated water and deplete their IQ’s starting as a toddler by brushing their teeth with fluoride every day in school. Embrace it, because one day you’ll be so brainwashed that you won’t have to – you’ll be it.  

Consider where your money goes each month when it’s torn from your paycheck. Consider what is causing market rate drops and skyrockets. Consider what is going into your body and that of those you’re responsible for. Do not blindly follow anything, or anyone; and do not compromise your life, liberty, (property) or pursuit of happiness, ever.
