That's f*cking idiotic. And I am referring to the "article", not food regulations.

Here is a sentence that makes me want to burn my passport and move into a fortified rural compound:

Southern Comfort eggnog contains no Southern Comfort.

Ah, yes. One of those despicable Standards of Identity that prevent unscrupulous companies from ripping you off by selling imitations of things while claiming they're the real thing.

Tyranny.

Whatever the sentence is, please do. I'll help you pack.

It's a farking definition. If you have less, it's no longer truly eggnog. Big farking deal.

People who treat every goddamned thing the government does as if it was Mao's cultural revolution should be institutionalized.

Or burned and buried in a fortified compound.

Did you read the comments? The site itself is masturbatory enough, but these people genuinely think they're going to open a commune available only to pure Patriotstm.

I'm pretty sure that it is more communist than they would like to admit.

They will build their "citadel", complete with walls and beehives, operate their business without following said regulations, make their own beer, wine and vodka, and manufacture their small arms.

Then, when the ATF comes to remind them they are still subject to US laws, a standoff will ensue. And we all know how well those situations usually pan out.

They'll eventually want to move out of the US and to some other country, maybe in South America. They'll buy a bunch of land in Guyana or somewhere remote and build a compound there.

Its rants like this that leave me quite happy - knowing these morans will stress themselves out of the gene pool soon enough. Perhaps the eggnog will simply speed things along.

Eh, it's more of a common theme when people talk about the government or other large bureaucracies. It's always the "oh man, it's so oppressive of the government to require/ban [insert object of pissiness]"... then someone rational walks them through why said statute/rule/regulation/ordinance/etc they either get quiet or just double down on the insanity. Most rules exist for a good reason - might not be the best rule in all instances, but these things aren't made in a vacuum.

That occurred to me, pretty much right off the bat. I have no doubt they would mock a peaceable commune of hippies (hell, I do too). But now they're talking about a co-op that appears to be a barter system, which is OK as long you stamp "Patriottm" on it. If there was anything about an official currency in there, I missed it. Granted, I only gave it a cursory read as my eyes were starting to bleed.

to further define, tequila is made from agave, period. to be called Tequila, it must come from the tequila region of Mexico. otherwise, it is known Mezcal.

there are great Mezcals out there, and of course shiatty ones as well. same with tequila. but the ones labeled Tequila have the benefit of being made in the region but, other wise, mezcal, and tequila are really the same thing.

Is that telling me that it isn't Eggnog if it is make with low fat milk?



Technically yes, but this is about labeling, mostly. Here's some stuff made with skim milk that's called "Lowfat Eggnog" on the label, which evidently counts as a different name since it has the modifier "lowfat" in there. Of course you & I & everyone else in here will still call it just plain ol' "eggnog".

From what I've seen while wandering around food manufacturing plants, it's *changes* to labeling requirements that they really hate. Like, say, if congress mandates some new nutrition labeling thing which forces everyone to redesign all their labels, possibly throw away a bunch of labeling material they've already purchased, spend a month or two fiddling with the labeling machines to get the new ones to work. That drives them up a wall. Tfa's author would have a point if something like that was going on, here.

But Standards of Identity for Eggnog and everything else? Those have been forever and manufacturers deal with them just fine without whining (except for the occasional attempt to redefine "chocolate" coming up now and then.) Dairies will make whatever sells and label the product accordingly.
