what are your thoughts?
My thoughts are, some bonehead bureaucrat can inspect my kitchen when they pry the stainless steel spatula from my cold, dead fingers. LOL

Funny! Maybe a #10 cast iron skillet? More "bang" for your buck.

I would think the feds have every right to do this under Obamacare. Since the feds now have complete control of the health "care" system they have every right to check people's kitchen. After all, if you engage in unhealthy behavior you cost the State money.

I think they should have auditors that can inspect your home at any time and without notice. If you don't follow the correct hygeine practices or eat the right foods you will be denied medical care.

They already do it to businesses. Why not do it to individuals too? The more the merrier.

It will be swell.
Yeah and while they are in your home they can weigh you and check your thermostat setting.

I have always thought that basic food safety and sanatation should be taught in HS.
Not as a big overblown class Just some basic instruction and maybe a quiz..
Maybe a half day thing.
