Law but what order?

Law and not Order

It’s nice to have law and order but I’m afraid today we have too much law and very little order. Let’s look at a few examples. If you eat at McDonalds you’ll get fat, or at least your kids will. Why? Because they put toys in happy meals. They were sued for this. Excuse me but they put toys in cereal! I know, we just picked up spongebob. So the logic is that these toys make kids fat? No, it means that the toys make kids want happy meals. So what makes these kids fat? Television and video games are the real reason. No one plays outside anymore. Of these reasons, television is the worst.

Because:

It seems like every other commercial is for this or that drug. “Cough twice, sneeze three times then blow your nose means you have {insert fancy drug name}. Visit your family doctor for a prescription (everybody has a family doctor? Then why do we need public health plans?).” Why does the doctor give out the prescription? Because he or someone in his family owns the pharmacy and he gets a cut. The more prescriptions, the closer he is to owning his own private island, complete with jet. The parents see the disease, but all the kids see is another drug mom and/or dad is taking. Well, if drugs make them feel better, I’ll get my own. Gee, why do we have a drug problem?

The government buys $200.00 hammers and $500.00 toilet seats. The president buys new flatware/dishes for six thousand people. How many senators need a raise because they can’t afford to pay their domestic help or for their mansions themselves? Who pays for this stuff? We do, the American taxpayer (they don’t pay taxes either).

Ever feel like turning your kid over your knee because he or she did something wrong? Don’t do it else social services removes the kid and puts them in the system where they are more likely to join gangs or break laws, partially because of separation anxiety. Let’s face it, parents go to jail trying to teach their kids right and wrong. Kids get in trouble trying to make a few bucks selling lemonade or Kool-Aid in their front lawn. Same thing happens at yard/garage sales. You have to have a tax license! This is double taxation folks. We went to war because of it. But the government only sees it as a way to recoup their stupid and wasteful spending.

I don’t know about anyone else but I see a lot of laws that create a lot of disorder.
