regulation

A simple easy way to make your meat recipes safe: put it between two pieces of bread!

 I was talking to a local small grocery store owner about why her she can't carry certain products in her ready-made section. Turns out things like local meat-filled cassava pasties and meat pies cannot be sold by a grocery store unless they they are produced in a continuously inspected USDA facility, no easy thing for a small local business to open.

Attracting the creativity of young people

 Yesterday I wrote about the fact that an unpredictable over-powerful government and excessive regulations can quash the desire of young people to be creative and work hard. 

I think there is an opportunity here for states and countries to attract more young people, both by fostering the flourishing of small businesses. While the Federal government unfortunately continues to grow in power, the fact is that some states are more free than other states. 

More Banned Food

Another nutritious food that is banned in the US is haggis, the traditional Scottish sheep offal delicacy. There were some reports this week that the ban had been lifted, but alas, these were squashed.
