    to be able to have a home and good food, those are the two basics of life.  However, it is hard to reason why our government has become so overly concerned with the eating habits of those who struggle with the basics of providing shelter for themselves, especially in light of what has happened in our ecomony with housing and jobs in the last four years.  Moreover, the government is now making personal decisions over women's bodies and healthcare.

    Perhaps having the aristocracy trying to represent the voice of the oppressed and basically controlling our basic personal habits and choices in life is no longer working in our society because it is more than overly intrusive and an abuse of power.  What is next, charting our personal bowel habits to make sure every American has a good movement daily?
