American Elephants


Plant a Garden, Go Directly to Jail for 93 Days? by The Elephant's Child

You didn’t pay any attention to the post below about overcriminalization, did you? Sure that you can’t be breaking any laws?  Think again.

The nanny government type that insists that little kids can’t sell lemonade in their front yards without a license from the city, are the same type who populate a big chunk of Congress, making laws that respond to current hot buttons.

They want to make the world a better place by telling us what to do. They are unable to exercise the restraint that characterizes a free people.  I call it the temptation towards tyranny.  You will find it in the requirement that restaurants post nutritional information on their menus. It’s rampant in San Francisco. There’s a reason why New York’s mayor is called Nanny Bloomberg.  Banning Happy Meals is typical. I hate tattoos, and piercings. I think they are remarkably ugly, but it’s their body, and not my business.
