Nick Gillespie calls this the worst Christmas video of this or any other year. Worse even than Hillary’s 2007 Christmas ad? There’s room for debate, but either way, it smells like week-old eggnog.

I only made it 36 seconds.

I made it to 42 seconds. Had to stop it then as my stomach was starting to churn.

Seems like something that would air in North Korea.

How could we have ever survived without all of this bureaucracy? Our founding fathers must have been complete idiots.

Well of course, they were a bunch of old heterosexual white men. /

I can sort of get through this if I watch this in the spirit of MST3K and goof on the whole “government bureaucrats are the duct tape that keeps civilized society together” theme of the thing.

Read the headline quickly and thought it said “…think of them as Satan’s elves.

That was nauseating. I made it thru the whole thing.
The part about Federal Food inspectors making our food safe made me laugh.
The Federal Government is not inspecting all of our food.
In fact, they have been extremely derelict.
They let large companies inspect their own food & give them reports on how safe the stuff they’re making is.
IN turn, the USDA safety inspectors are out inspecting SMALL BUSINESSES. WTF IS THAT?
Your food is safe bcs of the people in the private food industry who make that happen.
Government my effing A$$.
