Dumbass Award!

Friday, January 30, 2009

I wrote in a previous thread about members of the DFL who wanted to legislate smoking in privately owned vehicles whose passengers include a child. As you can see, I didn't expand on that thread because honestly, I was up against a time constraint, but I do now.

This folks, is a classic slippery slope, and here is why. Do-gooders like Rep. Nora Slawik, DFL-Maplewood:


And Rep. Sandy Pappas, DFL-St. Paul:



use the typical leftist libtard mantra of what they are proposing as 'for the children', because they know by using emotionalism, unnamed experts, dubious anecdotal evidence, and 'studies', they will get what they want, namely another chip away at personal responsibility and freedom.

And that, dear readers, is where the slippery slope begins. First, they start with privately owned vehicles, then if that succeeds, then they will proceed to homes that have children, because you know, homes are not equipped to handle smoke without proper ventilation, then if that succeeds, then you cannot smoke within 50 feet of your home if it has children...

And if you think they will stop at tobacco products, you are sadly mistaken. All one needs to do is look at New York City and the once Great Britain at how far, and how reaching, the Nanny Staters will go to achieve their goal of regulating everything you do in life.

So in closing, Reps. Slawik and Pappas have earned the coveted 'GerbilDroppings Dumbass Award".

Goth,
I just read this article link that AO had posted in comments at Sondras:

An Inauguration of Tyranny: Barack Obama's in the White House
by Edward Cline (January 22, 2009)

For all practical purposes, the news media have largely surrendered the sovereignty of the freedom of the press in exchange for the emotional solicitude of “hope” and the privilege of being a demagogue’s mouthpiece. That so many viewers and listeners disagree or are skeptical of what the news media has reported about Obama are blithely ignored by editorial writers and news anchors is a measure of media bias. We wish it to be so; ergo, it is true. He is our savior, our Messiah, our Leader. He will show us the way."

The rest is a must read and so on to what your"re saying here:

You'll probably want to forward it to all you know.

But Melissa, they have attacked donuts: obesity! and french fries: no trans fatty oils! and Bloomberg just came out with a directive for SALT use in NY! ! !

Get out of my life you bastards! ! !
