There Oughta Be A Law Against ….

It should be noted that they don’t make laws against things that nobody does. Similarly they don’t put warning labels on things when nobody has ever done that.

So when you see a warning label, especially one that warns about laws, you have to ask yourself, who was the moron that did that?

And why would anybody rip the tags off mattresses?

When England passed laws against homosexuality during Queen Victoria’s reign, they didn’t make it illegal to be a lesbian. Queenie didn’t believe any women would ever willingly do that. So there was no need for a law.

The Taxed Enough Already party at times seems to border on anarchy. They seem to think that whatever government touches it ruins. Governments are made of people. They aren’t going to be any better than people. Oh, and BTW people make mistakes. On Forever Knight vampires made mistakes too. Nick was forever killing the wrong person for the wrong reason. I’ve only seen a handful of episodes of Dexter. It sounds like he usually gets the right person. When the Tea party people first started appearing on the news, they seemed blissfully unaware as to what “Teabagging” is/was. My sister was one of those people. “You know what teabagging is, don’t you?” “What, has it got some special meaning since conservatives started using it?” “Well, the term was in use at colleges way back in the early 80’s when I was still a student.” “Course we didn’t have cell phone cameras or the internet. It was usually Poloroids on a bulletin board.” One more reason not to drink too much.

The only time I saw Rachel Maddow blush was the first time she did a story about teabaggers. I did see Ted Koppel blush during a Nightline episode about AIDS. They were talking about condom use during oral sex and a caller didn’t seem to think that would help much in his situation {he liked going down on his female partner}. Ted turned very red and went to commercial.

Marriage versus Civil Unions.
The fire at the Triangle shirt factory in 1911 killed a lot of people. The recent fire has some similarities. Unions exist for a reason. Laws exist for a reason. Without unions I doubt there would be an OSHA, or much labor law. I don’t think the middle class would be very big either. If you own a company that makes consumer items {clothing, shoes, kitchen stuff, lawnmowers, yard stuff} your employees should be able to afford your product. No that rule doesn’t apply to yachts, planes, or diagnostic medical equipment, but it should apply to shoes and a toaster. The song 16 Tons {sung by Tennessee Ernie Ford} was about a time when one’s commitment to one’s employer was more durable than marriage. “I owe my soul to the company store.” When divorce is so rare, I wonder how many people think about the phrase “Til death do us part.” If they really want to save social security why don’t they have automakers go back to drum brakes, get rid of the airbags and seatbelts, and have free cigarettes and booze, and school lunches are sugar deep fried in butter. No one would live long enough to burden the system.

If anybody is offended, yea! I did my part!
