Obama Administration Requires Magician To Submit A 32 Page “Disaster Plan” For His Rabbit

Rabbit - Photo by Hironori AkutagawaCentral planning in this country is getting completely and totally out of control.  These days, you can hardly do anything without running into a suffocating web of red tape.  For example, a small-time magician from Missouri that does magic shows for kids was absolutely horrified when he learned that the Obama administration is requiring him to submit a 32 page “disaster plan” for the rabbit that he uses in his shows.  Yes, this is actually true.  His name is Marty Hahne, and he thought that it was bad enough when the U.S. Department of Agriculture busted him for not having a “license” for his rabbit.  He went out and acquired the proper “license” for his rabbit, but he never dreamed that eventually he would also have to submit a 32 page “disaster plan” for the same rabbit.

This is a guy that does not make a lot of money.  He mostly does shows for kids at schools and at libraries

Marty Hahne, or Marty the Magician as he is known to school groups around Springfield, Mo., where he makes a living making his rabbit, Casey, magically appear in a variety of places (birthday gift, miniature library, cookie jar), is headlining a ventriloquists’ convention in Cincinnati this week.

You would think that the federal government would have much better things to do than to shake down a small-time magician with one rabbit.  Unfortunately, the control freaks that run things are not about to let anyone off the hook…

The U.S. Department of Agriculture requires the rabbit to be licensed, which is weird enough, but where things enter the rabbit warren of the truly bizarre is a new USDA rule seven years in the making.

Marty must have a rabbit disaster “plan” in place by July 29, 2013, in case of calamity — “flooding,” “earthquake,” “landslide/mudslide/avalanche,” “wildfire,” “intentional attack,” to name a few examples.

“My country is broke,” Mr. Hahne says. “We are out of money, and now the government is spending time, and money, worrying about an emergency plan for a bunny rabbit.”

Fortunately, a woman named Kim Morgan that specializes in writing emergency plans for federal agencies heard about what Mr. Hahne was going through and offered to draft the 32 page disaster plan for free.

But of course this is just one example of a much larger phenomenon.  We are a country that literally has millions of laws, rules and regulations and that is drowning underneath an ocean of red tape.

And it gets worse with each passing year.  For example, just check out what one recent CNN article had to say about the “privacy nightmare” that the new federal Obamacare database is going to create…

When shoppers apply for health insurance through the forthcoming state-based Obamacare exchanges, the online system will verify each applicant’s information by pulling in data from more than half a dozen federal agencies ranging from the IRS to the Peace Corps. It will know who you are, how much money you make, and whether or not you’re in the United States legally.

The prospect of one online system having access to so much personal information is making some watchdogs nervous. In a USA Today op-ed decrying the system as a “privacy nightmare,” researchers Stephen Parente and Paul Howard penned these scary words: “This hub will achieve what has, until now, only appeared in pulp thrillers: a central database linking critical state and federal data on every U.S. citizen for real-time access.”

Can you imagine how much of a bureaucratic nightmare that is going to be?  Government bureaucrats are going to have access to all of our health information, and they will instantly know where we have failed to comply with the countless new rules and regulations that are being implemented as a part of Obamacare.

It is going to be an absolutely gigantic ball of red tape.  It will be a bureaucratic paradise.

So what can we do about all of this?

Individually, not a whole lot.  But there are some states that are starting to push back against the federal government.

For example, the following are some excerpts from a recent email that someone sent to me about what is going on in Oklahoma…

Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values…! HB 1330

Guess what………. Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB 1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

Guess what………. Oklahoma did it anyway.

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I’m sure that was a setback for the criminals. The Liberals didn’t like it — But….

Guess what………… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers’ license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.

By the way, the Liberals don’t like any of this either.

Guess what…who cares… Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

The United States is not supposed to be a centrally-planned society where control freak bureaucrats watch, track, monitor and control virtually everything that we do.

We are supposed to be a society that maximizes privacy, freedom and liberty.

Sadly, at this point we are becoming more like centrally-planned societies such as China every single day.  And if you want an idea of what life in a society that has a very high degree of central planning is like, just check out this video of a subway station during morning rush hour in Beijing…

A photo of the overcrowding in the subway station in the video above was recently posted on Twitter

Subway Station In Beijing

Is that how we want to live?

To the central planners, we are all essentially nameless, faceless cattle that need to be herded in the right direction.

And the central planners always believe that they know better than us.  They believe that we cannot be trusted with freedom and liberty because we cannot handle it.

Unfortunately, central planners usually end up making a giant mess of things. And right now they are making a huge mess of the United States. If we don’t stop them, they will continue to wreck our once great nation.

So what do you think about all of this?  Please feel free to share your opinion by posting a comment below…

    Does anyone have a story of red tape that is crazier than this one?

    • Charles

      I work in a research lab and we just got notified of this new regulation in regards to our research mice. Our disaster plan is now 78 pages long, and we are required to provide provisions (food, housing) for any staff that would need to be on hand to care for mice in the event of a disaster! They are requiring us to have 7 days worth of food and supplies for both animals and the animal caretakers! I spent all day reviewing this document and got absolutely no actual science done!

      • MIchael in Chicago

        I think this regulation is a good start.

      • DonnieB

        I would have just supplied the caretaker with a Mouse Cookbook. Done.

  • RBK

    Barack Hussein Obama is Stalin reincarnated, albeit in more dangerous/fanatical Muslim form. Anybody who supports Obama i.e. liberal retards, and so-called conservatives who don’t have the balls to impeach this sick individual, got their heads in the sand way too far and don’t realize the danger this man poses to America. We are well on the way toward a police state which will make Stalin’s Russia look like a third-grader

    • ZaMan

      Wow. Just when I thought the racist right couldn’t get anymore sick and hateful, you prove me wrong AND right!

      You can’t be serious? Do you have any understanding about how government works?

      Spoken like a true conservative, my friend.

      You can start right after he commits an impeachable offense. Anyone who advocates for impeachment without an impeachable offense really doesn’t give a damn about the country. everybody against the best president we’ve had because he’s black.

      You thinks what you thinks and seems to think you’re right. There’s no gray with Bea, only black and white. You totally ignores the fact that the president isn’t a dictator as you rolls out your list of complaints.

      Comparisons to Hitler or Stalin are still many light years away and totally unfair to Obama. No-one in America is even remotely comparable – not even the Westboro Baptist Church.

      People who compare him to those people are the ones who are insane.

      • Lumara

        He HAS committed impeachable offenses. He’s had citizens assassinated without arrest, charges and trial, he is giving arms to our enemies in Al Queda and the Muslim brotherhood, which is very much like Stalin, he is engaging our military in other countries’ conflicts without a Declaration of War from Congress, and it is understandable why some believe his supporters are idiots.

      • Heidi

        Technically he has committed an impeachable offense, as have most of the people in office. They swear their allegiance and the protection of a foreign nation over the welfare of their own country.

        Obama has been murdering innocent civilians with his air strikes and his administration have been funding the “Syrian Rebels” who are linked to Al Qaeda. The very people we are “supposedly” fighting in the Middle East, but really just conquering the territory for the racist state of israhell.

        He is a puppet, and the “Chosen people” are pulling his strings. If you know anything of history, the only person fighting against the Bolshevik-Communists who were planning to take over the world was Hitler. It was FDR who claimed that he had a secret map of the territory the “Nazis” were supposedly going to take after the war —- only it was FDR, Stalin and Churchill that divided the SAME territories amongst themselves (the “Chosen people” – Bankers, Business, Munition makers took over the new territories).

        Look at how Obama kisses AIPAC’s a**

        • RBK

          And he wasn’t born in this country, which is yet another impeachable offense and a gross violation of our Constitution which he tramples on.

      • In Truth

        The race card is tattered, Dog eared, and worn out.. Nobody is listening to you or your race baiting anymore..

        • ZaMan

          Deny, Deny, Deny! That must work fro people like you. the ignorant TRY to pretend racism doesn’t exist anymore, but that just proves how detached from reality you a-holes are. Racism stills exist whether you like it or not!

          • In Truth

            LOL.. When you can’t win the argument on any facts or intellectual grounds, you start calling people names.. That’s worn out too.. It makes you look very unintelligent.

          • ZaMan

            Now you are playing holier than thou AND the Denial Card! That is ignorant and pathetic at best!

          • Wayne Chipman

            I suppose You say it is Racist when I state the fact that Negroes consistently test lower in I.Q. than any other Race.
            Why Negroes should not be in charge of anything, just look at Chicago, Detroit and of course Africa.

          • ZaMan

            Poll results showed that 44% of repubebicans supported armed over thrown of the government . Hundreds of thousands of red state people want to succeed from the union. Posters claim , ” I wasn’t racist until the President was elected or until all this Black crime happened” Please, you’ll have been racist since day one. Remember the “good old days” when those Blacks all had to live on the other side of town or had to sit on the back of the bus. I know you miss those days , but their gone : (

          • Wayne Chipman

            Maybe just maybe 44% of Republicans have Woken up.

          • jilleysorenson99

            You really need some mental help. Sure hope you don’t own a gun.

          • Wayne Chipman

            Yes, I see Racism every day, It is coming from Negroes and the Government.

          • ZaMan

            You deliberately posted a racist jrant that depicts blacks as lazy and dishonest. And a bad shot at the president. And the fact that you DID post it shows your true racist colours, if you’ll pardon the pun;

            You continue to prove my point!

            The only thing that Barack is revealing is just how racist you guys are.

          • jilleysorenson99

            You really hate white people don’t you.

          • Americanmeltdown

            Go ahead and play the race card, it’s all you’ve got, you and your ilk.

            We don’t care. We are fed up with the likes of you and yours and we not going to keep silent any longer!
            The line has been crossed by this phony crook in office. We will call a spade a spade!

          • nononsense57

            Many people have a vested interested in making sure racism does exist…whether it does or not…they’ll just manufacture it to suit their purposes.

          • jilleysorenson99

            Being a racist is still a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT whether you like it or not. The saddest thing is you sound like a true racists but that is you right.

      • Vince

        Your claims of racism are sad and pathetic. He said nothing racist at all. Get some new material.

      • Vince

        BTW, how is there any difference between him and a dictator when he ignores laws he wants, and does what he wants without going thru congress to get laws passed, just by issuing executive orders? Sounds pretty dictatorial to me.

      • BurtGummer44

        Paid WH disinformation troll.

      • Americanmeltdown

        Unfortunately, there are millions just like you who never question anything obama does.
        You can start with these, but I imagine you won’t, being one of the obama sheep. You really need to open your eyes and check into each one of these items listed for starters. Given all the information about obama, I’ve given up thinking you who support him, are stupid. I now believe you are just plain ignorant and don’t care to be informed.

        #1 Was foul play involved in
        the helicopter crash that killed 22 members of the Navy’s elite SEAL Team 6
        unit? Why were all the bodies cremated? Why was the helicopter’s black box

        #4 Why did the man “who leads the IRS Office of Chief Counsel” meet with Barack Obama just days before his office issued new guidelines about how to handle applications from conservative groups?

          Clearly you read the National Inquirer and watch the FOX and Friends show and enjoy a healthy dose of the Internets.

          You are the party that rely on youtube videos as facts, yet demean fact-checking websites because they don’t follow the meme of your racist tirade against the black man in office!

          I cannot fathom how unbelievably stupid you are.

          You know nothing about truth, especially when you get your source from the “Internet” the MOST RELIABLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION IN HUMAN HISTORY, RIGHT?

          • Wayne Chipman

            If America is so Racist why don’t You just go back to Africa.
            All Negroes in America should be thankful that their Ancestors were Slaves, otherwise they would be in the Pit called Africa.
            By the way Africa is a Continent not a Country, the term African American shows how low the average Negroes intelligence is, and Whites who buy into their Garbage.

            it’s spelled SECEDE. SECESSION. look it up. and if you would remember your history, armed overthrow is what the Founders did to create this once great experiment. as Thomas Jefferson said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” yeah, say it, THAT Thomas Jefferson, who had slaves, but who also was probably the greatest statesman we ever had.

          • Americanmeltdown

            You wouldn’t know truth if it bit you in the A$$. keep on defending obama, the truth of all the things I listed will come out at some point.

          • ZaMan

            Folks as clueless/gullible as you are in large part responsible for the fact that Mr. Obama got elected to a second term…without YOUR PERSONAL EFFORTS to paint “conservatives” as a bunch of complete lunatics, Obama might not have won…

            Thanks for your efforts!

          • Americanmeltdown

            No, the National Inquirer is not on my reading list.
            Anyone that believes obama is the greatest president ever, can’t be at all bright. You have been duped by obama and what the lame stream media feeds you. The facts are out there for you to sift through on your own, but you won’t because you blindly follow the man, who tells you what to think, the man whom you like to refer to as “black”.
            I could care less that he is “black”. What does concern me is his policies and his actions to date.
            Both are cause for alarm, unless, you are one of the takers. I have been a producer all my life. I carry my own load and most likely part of yours.

            Has the fact been lost on you that obama is also half white? THere are those pesky facts again. Facts, lets stick to the facts. The man is half white.

            I’ve discovered the obama sheep cannot be educated, even when the facts stare them in the face.

            From an European American to an African America – sounds pretty stupid doesn’t it?

      • rxantos

        There are two kind of racism.
        - Attacking an individual not because its actions but because of its race.
        and
        - Defending an individual, irrelevant of its actions, because of its race.

        You sir are a racist of the 2nd type.

      • nononsense57

        Where did RBK mention race? The one who is racist is you.

      • jilleysorenson99

        I take it you are a brown shirt…

  • ruffsoft

    i HAVE it on good authority that Obama personally directed the Dept of Agriculture, which is his favorite Department, to find a way to put the magician out of business.

    With only 6 million employees, Obama has his finger on each and every govt worker and is known to micromanage the activities of each.

    Like when the Bush appointed head of the IRS, and the Bush appointed Republican Inspector General, said that the IRS was not politically motivated, that was all Obama stagecraft.

    Obama is worse than Stalin, worse than Hitler: he proves once and for all what our Founding Father Tom Jefferson said: “Negroes are not capable of civilization.”

    That is why Jefferson, who had over 200 slaves (all created equally) only freed 9, including family members of his black mistress. He knew they could not survive free, for lack of intelligence, so he kindly gave them the full welfare of the slave status.

    I would compare Obama with the most evil man in the world, FDR, who singlehandedly destroyed America and created a communist dictatorship. But at least FDR was kind to animals.

    Obama is a rabbit basher and should be impeached for requiring a 32 page emergency report. I don’t mind the killing of American citizens with drones or the forcing healthcare down the throats of 32 million uninsured Americans, but when he personally attacks a smalltown magician, he has gone way to far.

    It’s time to get the pitchforks, folks. Next, the Obama administration will be coming door to door to take your guns, your rabbits, and your “I love Zimmerman” posters.

    Bury your guns, your gold, and your rabbits. If NATO troops appear at your door, as Alex Jones said they would, tell them you don’t speak European and give them candy full of insecticides. Do NOT let them dig up your backyard, tho it is reliably reported that those who do not cough up their guns will have their yards dug up at your expense.

    The end of the dream is here: no lemonade stands, no rabbits, no guns, no traditional marriage, no more racist humor….what are we coming to?

    • ZaMan

      • ruffsoft

        My comment was so insane I thought it would be recognized as absurdist satire, but apparently it was too close to the kinds of madness the right promotes.

        The article itself is so absurd, I couldn’t resist mocking this kind of craziness. Apparently, you didn’t catch my wink.

        Comments like “so he kindly gave them the full welfare of the slave status.” were meant to be mockery of rightwing rhetoric.

        Preannouncing satire dampens the effect, but apparently, there is nothing too insane to be taken seriously as right wing fulminations.

        • Renaissance Girl

          Ruffsoft, I think it’s because you used the quote regarding “Negroes” as being unable to live civilized lives. And yes, some people really do think in the way you depicted — satirical or not. It’s obvious that many agree with you or unfortunately don’t have the heart to call you out because few people disagreed with your comment. To be honest, ruffsoft isn’t the only one who didn’t catch your wink. However, I had skipped reading after the fifth paragraph from disgust.

    • Renaissance Girl

      LOL. Although I don’t agree with “deletion”, I do find your comment funny . . . and perhaps am the only one who “gets” the inside joke!? Ahhh, good old Kira, sociopathic “savior” of the world.

      • Hammerstrike

        Indeed, that would be far too kind. Probably. I think there is no savior that cannot be ruthless.

        Ever wondered why the sociopath remains evil incarnate in our tolerance-preaching societies?

        The thing with sociopaths, it isn´t just that they can learn to be manipulative, just by knowing the methods, they themselves can become harder to manipulate.

        Even more, the deception of the system relies not simply on lying but manipulate people using their emotions against them, so that they believe these lies in spite of all reason.
        The sociopath does not have these emotions and put self-interest first and foremost, only enough cohersion and threat keeps them loyal.

    Had the founding fathers been alive,they would have started a revolution since long ago,but,hey,remember,we are living in 21st century America where men are sheepishly taught to follow the government no matter what. To achieve this the government(and the Devil behind the whole thing)just keeps encouraging all sorts of entertainment possible to keep the thoughts of men busy and away from the reality of the situation,and of course to make them effeminate by reducing the amount of male hormones in their bodies through lack of active physical activities. Shame on America for having departed from God like this!!!

  • Dave Webb

    I can only imagine what the magician has to go through to keep the rabbit as a pet. What does it say about pigeons?
    I think the government has a lot of pigeons . . . Perhaps they have to write 32 page reports on every one of them.

    I can only imagine what that judge would say that made the statement” “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
    So we are all required to read millions of laws, zoning regs, etc. If we want to remain legal that would be the case.
    I think we should go after the bureaucrats that write all these laws.
    There is a huge amount of paperwork involved and government inspections just to buy or sell a house. It is for your own good. That is the classic answer to people that criticize the system. Only a Realtor can get it all correct and even that is not a sure thing.

    This is supposed to be the land of the free. Just sign here. These bureaucrats hide in nice shiny offices all over the country in every aspect of government.

    We really need laws that do away with laws that make no sense. But that would probably require a revolution in government. Don’t see it happening anytime soon.

    I think its hilarious. He probably could have drawn his disaster plan in crayons and they would have approved it. You got to think outside the box when you respond to this kind of bureaucratic nonsense!

    Dear gub’ment,
    In case of calamity — “flooding,” “earthquake,” “landslide/mudslide/avalanche,” “wildfire,” “intentional attack,” etc, I plan to make said rabbit disappear once and for all. What follows is 31 pages of recipes for prepared rabbit. Come and get me.

    Michael,

    Context is important. The law that brought inconvenience to the life of the magician was enacted after Hurricane Sandy, in which thousands of lab animals were killed. The facilities hadn’t prepared evacuation plans for the animals. The USDA was attempting to prevent a re-occurence of this tragedy. However, as so often happens, the law experienced hiccups in its implementation. Now, this case of the magician is under review. (My information comes from the Internet edition of Time Magazine.)

    If there is central planning, it is the planning needed to save the lives of animals. There are some people who believe that animal life should be considered on par with human life. I am reading stories at Love Meow about firefighters risking their lives to save cats, and, when the cats are not responsive, of firefighters applying CPR to these animals. I am personally touched by these stories, and I support the USDA having a policy in place to save the lives of animals. I do think that the policy, however, overextends to single-animal situations like this case of the magician, and I am happy to see that the agency is reviewing the implementation of the policy.

    The American government is getting ridiculous

    Aww…bless the US for their big-hearted concern for the bunny’s survival plan. Carrots can be dehydrated *hint*

    After all, aren’t we supposed to have food, medication, etc. stored for our pets in case of disaster?

    This is coming for all pet owners. You’ll have to present proof of plan whenever you take Fido to the vet.

    Have they any idea what they have done? Do they realise how many cats and dogs will require paperwork?
    All because of one magician’s rabbit?
    I guess I am counting my chickens before they hatch . . .
    or rabbits . . . let us see how much paperwork we can generate for an entire country.
    Then folks go vote these idiots out of office.

    It’s amazing that leftists on this site are talking about a Magician and a Rabbit being regulated by the Federal Government, and they still managed to bring race into it.. So pathetic.. lol The race card is worn out.. You’ll have to find another evil and deceptive means to try and prove your points.

    obama has at least a 32 page disaster plan for america.
    the phony in chief is continuing to work his plan to bring america to ruin. bankruptcy is on the horizon.
    Get prepared – get out of debt and be able to feed your family. Have some form of barter available to you and your family. Could you survive on your own if you had to for one week, two, a month? Think about it. How many Americans live for the moment and pay check to pay check, spending everything they get their hands on?
