Main Points of the Patriot Act Israel's Terrorism Law Israel's Terrorism Law Allows anyone suspected of terrorism to have their house bugged or watched without their permisssion, but Due to the patriot act, now the authorities have legal permission to do these acts regardless of civil rights. It protects civil liberties and provides for the common defense Expectation of privacy is not unlimited The law provides significant safeguards Current US Nutrition Legislation Food Legislation Abroad In Denmark foods with fat get taxed heavily.
10% tax on dairy fat reduces fat consumption by less than 1% according to Forum for Health Economics & Policy (FHEP).
A fat tax affects the poor exponentially more than the wealthy.
In New Zealand people are prohibited from growing their own food and trading it with neighbors.
Registration is required to grow food.
Food safety officers can conduct armed raids without warrents and with full impunity from prosecution. New Rules for School Lunches New laws require school lunches be no more than 750 to 850 calories on average. This actually leaves most active students hungry.

Most kids only have one meal between the time they get to school in the morning, and the end of practice for their sport or activity. New York City Unhealthy Beverage Law In New York City, restaurants and gas stations can not sell drinks with any more than 25 calories per ounce in sizes any larger than 16 ounce cups. This includes most sodas and juices, but dairy-based, as well as alcoholic, beverages are exempt from the law. Supermarkets are unaffected. Things to Ponder If the government can control what we eat, and how much we eat, then once they've "regulated" that, what will they control next? How much school food have you seen thrown away? If people don't like the food they're forced get it's being wasted. The government uses legislation to fight obesity. Obesity is bad for the government because the government has to pay for health care for these unhealthy individuals. Should they stop regulating food so much and focus on taxing unhealthy people or give tax breaks to those who make healthy choices and eat balanced diets? Most of all, everyone is different. Making one blanket plan for millions of people leaves too much room for error. People have different needs. Advertising Companies that the government is "uncomfortable" with can have their abilities to advertise restricted. Things as healthy as Cheerios, peanut butter, and yogurt are even affected by these standards. Nutrition experts believe that the increase in obesity is from physical inactivity, not caloric intake. Children's caloric intake has been roughly the same for the last 20 years. 16 ounce new york news story

http://economics.about.com/od/useconomichistory/a/government_inv.htm Who has a law that bothers you? Think now and realize that its possible to change laws with enough people to spread the word! They say we are given a "reasonable amount" Electronic Frontier Foundation states that the Government can add DNA samples for anyone convicted of "any crime of violence," Spying on suspected trespassers (not limited to non terrorist suspects) and more requires no court order. Wiretaps are now allowed for any suspected violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, offering possibilities for Government spying on and monitoring any computer user's searches, e-mails and in fact record every stroke on any computer. Foreign and domestic intelligence agencies can more easily spy on Americans. Is this fair? it is based on the enforcement of criminal law (both ordinary offences which protect life and property and special offences connected to activities related to terrorist organisations) alongside special laws which grant the government powers to take administrative preventive measures (such as the detention of suspected terrorists) According to Israeli authorities these are groups that provide social-economic services to the public but are also linked to or support terrorist organizations and should therefore also be defined as “terrorist organizations.” “Envelope Organizations.” permits a suspect to be held for up to 96 hours before being brought before a judge, and revises the period of detention of terrorist suspects without charge up to 30 days. It enables court hearings to be held in the absence of the suspect and denial of legal counsel for prolonged periods. the act, even if the organization involved is not a declared “terrorist organisation.” The law also grants the authorities extensive search and confiscation rights for purposes of seizure, and the right to close premises. Britain's extreme laws Britain's extreme laws Under the new legislation, people can be forced to stay and die in
areas hit by bio terrorism to prevent the spread of infection. (or kill them) Army soldiers and armed police will be authorized to control the public using live bullets and lethal force. The restricted area would probably be divided into a few strictly separated sectors,with as many people as possible being vaccinated in sectors farthest from the incident.
