No More Nanny State, please.

People fucking piss me off. Moonbats piss me off more than Conservatives. Libertarians rarely piss me off. I’m sick and fucking tired of shitbags trying to legislate my life. What makes it worse is they’re absolutely off-track with most of their legislation. People are just fucking stupid.

What now, you might ask? Mostly just the usual bullshit. I just got back from my morning run and am watching the news before heading to work. What do I see? An interview with the father of a boy killed in a car accident this weekend. Here’s the story:

Boy talking to father while driving. Boy drops cell phone. Boy bends over while driving to pick it off the floor. Boy crosses center line and hits a tree. Boy dies.

So now the father is on a crusade. He claims he’s always told his son to stay off the phone while driving (I guess it’s ok if you’re talking to Dad). He says he knows a cell phone killed his son. Now he wants to legislate cell phone use.

Great. Your son, aided by you, exercised poor judgement and lost his life. Now you want to legislate what I’m able to do. Fuck you, buddy. I’m sorry for your loss, but you’re a fucking moonbat asshat. A cell phone didn’t kill your son. Your son did something stupid and killed himself. He’s lucky he didn’t kill anyone else. I use a cell phone daily. I use a cell phone in the car. Why has my cell phone never killed me? Because it’s a fucking cell phone. I use it responsibly. We don’t need more laws. We have existing laws to protect the law abiding citizens from reckless drivers.

You can apply the same thing to just about anything. It’s not the object that’s bad, it’s the person using it. People are stabbed with kitchen knives. People are killed with circular saws. People are hit by cars. People are beaten with sticks. Should we ban them? Why? We already have laws against these violent crimes. I have sticks. I have cars. I have circular saws. I have guns. Not one has ever killed anyone. (My utility knife cut me once, but I punished it.)

Stay the fuck out of my house. Stop babying me because of morons who don’t know how to act. Leave me the fuck alone. If you want to legislate something, pass some legislation to fix that fucking pot hole at the end of my street. That would be a good use of my tax dollars.

  1. We don’t need anymore laws. Everytime they add a fucking dumb ass law, they need to take ten off, let’s see if that works.

  3. I hate to beat this drum but I remember when everybody got “sue happy” because a loved one died after being a smoker for their entire lives.

    I said it then and I’m going to say it now…that right there opened Pandora’s Box to all what we see now.

    That in my opinioin is when we started legally placing blame and getting PAID for it.

  4. I wish someone would pass legislation on my mother’s strap-on.

    There are days I can hardly walk.

  5. So, will they ban my pointy high heel? Now that can be a weapon.

  6. Shucks, would you ruin everyone else’s fun by insisting they don’t micro-legislate every little aspect your life! Not a bad idea in some respects, although I can see some things having rules and regs, but will readily admit is has been more than ridiculous for years now to the popint that they will soon try to regulate how to wipe our butts in the john.

    All the best,

  7. Give Devalue some more time I’m sure a toilet paper law is coming! I hear he’s pushing a green tax on our vehicles. If you think things can’t get worse wait untill that hits. LOL!

  8. Sweet irony! The nanny statist here in The People’s Republic of California that got our “no speaking on a cell phone unless it’s hands free” law passed, just got in an accident for…. dropping her phone while driving, bending over to pick it up and getting in an accident. Of course, it was in a State car, so we’ll all get to pay for her fuck up.

    There are rumors flying around that she was driving erratically for a long time prior to the accident (a bunch of people called 911 to report her driving all over the place). I guess state legislators can drive fucked up AND with cell phones glued to their heads, just not us common pukes.

  9. Glenn B – I work in nursing and there is a law on how to wipe butt. No fooling. If it is not done properly the “state” can fine the hospital, nursing home, or in home care company big bucks.

    I personaly think we are slowly and quielty leagalizing ourselves into a vote sponsered dictatorship

  10. You must be an “old” American to even remember what freedom is. If you’ve never had something its hard to miss it. God bless We who REMEMBER. My first visit to a blog and I’m fucking impressed!

  11. There already ARE laws about cell phone laws.
    The boy didn’t follow those laws or common sense.
    He was a stupid kid.

    I get even more angry at zero tolerance POLICIES(they rearely are laws) where they arrest a six year old for kissing someone, or suspend a tenth grader for bring midol to school.

  12. Living in England which is such a nanny state it’s unreal I loved your blog entry – keep it up!

  13. Why are liberals obsessed with eliminating risk?

    Comment by Maxx — October 21, 2007 @ 7:08 pm

  14. Why? Because liberals are morons with small peckers. It hurts them, so they wanna take control over your life. It makes them feel better, stronger and powerfull but it`s being made “all for your own good”. They have well paid off “scientists” who`ll show you datas, statistics to prove their point of view. In a nanny state you`re no longer a human being. You`re a piece of shit, a number in a statistic of “saved” and other propaganda BS like that.
