USDA Issues Permit for Santa's Reindeer

WASHINGTON, Dec. 22, 2017 - The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) today issued a movement permit to Mr. S. Claus of the North Pole, a broker with Worldwide Gifts, Unlimited. The permit will allow reindeer to enter and exit the United States between the hours of 7 p.m. December 24, 2017 and 7 a.m. December 25, 2017, through or over any U.S. border port.
I don't think they're making the point they think they're making. "Cute, right? We'd literally regulate Santa Claus!" Cool. Maybe your whole bureaucracy shouldn't exist.

What, without inspecting them for hoof and mouth disease? :lol:
Some one has too much time on their hands. They work for the US Government.

This is your tax dollars at waste.
To bad the feds don't waste that much time vetting the illegals busting down our southern border.

Never underestimate the ability of the government to waste your tax dollars.
What - no one was following Santa on their Amazon Echo as tracked by NORAD? You didn't visit the extensive, dedicated tracking website ( It's available in eight languages, offers interactive animations for tracking, had games & videos, and accompanying news website (, etc.

Before we get too crazy, NORAD freely discloses that they use "70 corporate and military partners who help bring NTS to the world for free". It is a cute story how it started as well:
NORAD said:
NORAD has been tracking Santa since December 24, 1955 when a young boy accidently dialed the unlisted phone number of the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The boy was actually trying to call Santa, and dialed a misprinted phone number from a department store advertisement in the local newspaper.
