The Demise of the Easy-Bake Oven 

If anybody has any questions about the current state of the government ask a kid with an Easy-Bake Oven.  Once a fun toy that you baked some what edible treats with, is now extinct in the way we all use to know.

Why did the federal government pick a poor helpless toy?  Did the Island of Misfit Toys need a new member?  Exactly what did this toy do besides under cook cake mixes that ended up with Dad suffering through as to not disappoint.
It wasn’t the toy but the light bulb.  Yes, the 100 watt bulb is the culprit. How dare the incandescent light bulb cause so many problems.  Uh, what?  Wait a minute we are talking the federal government here right?
Yes we are.  Apparently the bulb was an energy sucking vile on the face of the union.  Okay may be not that big of deal but somebody who hated the dread light bulb sitting in cubicle somewhere in the EPA felt it was not acceptable for factories to continue to make them (here).
Who started all this?  I don’t care! it‘s the symbol in which it represents.  How much do we want the government in our homes?
While I have raised my family and I have grown accustom (enjoyed) to picking up only after myself.  Taking the federal government into my home has no real appeal.  Actually none, and pretty sure I am extremely tired of picking up after them with the taxes I pay. 
Through a strange little toy I literally can trace back the clumsy take over of my rights.
  • I have the right to bear arms.  Not fund Mexican drug cartels.
