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.


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.

It’s your Taxdollars

How many billions, no, wait, I guess its trillions now, that the US Government is in debt. We the taxpayers are paying that! Why? Let’s look at a few simple changes that could help, in many ways. We’ll start with prisons. We have prostitutes, Marijuana smokers/users and other petty criminals locked up. There are many other harmless only to themselves locked up. Why? You don’t like prostitutes or relatively harmless drugs then stay away from them. We are paying their upkeep with our taxes. Decriminalize these and they have to work to pay their own way, including taxes. Governments would save a fortune that could be used to cut down the national debt or reduce state taxes. It’s time for politicians to get a clue. They want big salaries and they want us to pay it. It’s time to stop and smell the greenbacks. We earn it, they take it. It’s a waste of money all the way around.

Illegal immigrants take jobs. Sure they do, the ones we don’t want. How many taxpayer dollars are used to guard the border? Let’s open the borders and require only background checks to make sure only people willing to work and not criminals, get in. Do this with Canada and Mexico. We would have to increase the drug patrols but we would have the money by getting rid of the other patrols and border checks.

It’s not an easy choice but the logical one. Make prostitutes have monthly health exams and tax their income. Marijuana could carry the same laws as drunk driving. How many jail and prison cells would that open? How much would the government (and the taxpayers) save? Think about it. Decriminalize minor drugs and prostitution and the crime lords have less control.

Our Amazing Government

Our Amazing Government

Isn’t it wonderful how our Government watches out for us? They couldn’t make smoking illegal so they raise the taxes. In fact, they will keep raising the prices until all the places that deal with smoking products go out of business. This gives the governments more money for their raises. It gives them more money for THEM to buy cigarettes since they will have to be imported. Of course it puts thousands of people out of work, but no one likes smoke in the air so what’s a few more thousand unemployed?

But then, alcohol becomes a problem. Again, tax them out of business: a few more thousand in the unemployment line. But, drunk drivers are now a thing of the past. Bars now only serve sodas. We are living well now. Oh wait a minute, soda pop has all that sugar. Let’s take out cola’s, Pepsi, Coke, RC, etc.

Then comes coffees and teas, followed by something else.

But our government, the one we bought and paid for with first our votes and then our taxes, is watching out for us. NOT!
