The state of Florida has discovered in an investigation that some 180,000 individuals are illegally registered to vote in that state. Many are non-citizens. Florida, like several states, is trying to institute photo identification for voter registration. Attorney General Holder and his fellow hacks in the State Department have issued a cease and desist order to Florida to stop any effort to initiate photo ID for voter registration. According to Holder, such a requirement would be discriminatory against minorities and the poor. Listen, if I thought the only way my political party could win an election was with illegal voters, I would oppose photo ID also. Let’s face it, the only opposition to ensuring legal elections through proper identification is from the Democrat party. Does anyone actually believe Al Franken would have ever been elected to the US Senate from Minnesota in an honest election? Who among you believe Chicago politics is an honorable profession? Florida, Arizona, and all states currently trying to deal with these issues should just say NO to the Federal Government. There is such a thing as the Tenth Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

But wait. As they say in the infomercials, there’s more.

Mayor Moron Bloomberg has decided, in his infinite wisdom, to ban any non-diet soft drink in sizes over sixteen ounces. Bloomberg, who in the past has legislated against certain cooking oils and salt, is now after that demon of demons, sugar. Bloomberg, who seems to fancy himself as the Daddy of New York City instead of her Mayor, has appointed himself as the arbiter of all things dietetic. Why, one would think that New York City is in such good shape that the only matters that need the Mayor’s attention are the eating and drinking habits of its citizens. You know it is troubling enough that this idiot could ever propose such inane regulations, what is even more upsetting is that the people of New York would elect him once, let alone re-elect him. He is a billionaire who has never actually lived real life. He has had a privileged existence from day one thanks to his family’s money and he probably thinks he is the smartest man in the room. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Next we have the beautiful and once great state of California. They currently are facing a deficit of 19 billion dollars with no relief in sight. Their response? Why the city of San Francisco has banned toys in “Happy Meals.” It seems they think California parents are incapable of actually saying no to their kids so the government has to do the parenting for them. Some cities in California say you cannot legally own a pet. You must adopt it. Other cities will not let you light up a smoke in your own backyard because you might offend you neighbor. Of all the problems facing California, one would think their legislative time could be better spent dealing with real problems. My lovely California readers will quickly tell you that they are not the only state with such issues. I completely agree. It is just they are the easiest to make fun of.

What in the world is happening? Where did the country of my birth go? When did  people decide that the government was better at making the basic decisions of their life than they were? Let me just say this. There is no one on earth, let alone a politician, who is competent to tell me how to live my life. They cannot tell me what to read, eat, drink, or with whom I should associate. I and I alone am personally responsible for my life and my decisions. For any politician to assume any sort of leadership over me is offensive. I am my own leader.

We the people need to get a handle on our government. Elected politicians, regardless of their office from the president on down, are our employees. They answer to us. If we allow them to control our lives, we have only ourselves to blame.

You didn't mention the new law in N.J. requiring pets in a car to be in a seat belt. The fine is #1,000 for the animal violation and about $100 for a person.
The insanity goes on.
