This is Child’s Play

March 9, 2009

One of many reasons that liberal thought is inherently dangerous is that it veers to mob mentality.  Whether or not you liked George Bush, there is a great deal of good to say of his ability to stop liberal congress from reacting to current news stupidly.  Liberals tend to hear a piece of bad news and assume that the only answer to the problem is swift (yeah right) and steadfast government intervention.  They are the legal equivalent of chicken little.  THE SKY IS FALLING!  Let’s make acorns ILLEGAL (now making ACORN illegal I could go for…)!!  It’s only later on that we understand the full consequences of their idiotic ideas.

Remember last year when we found out that some of Mattel’s toys had lead in the paint?  Did you ever personally meet a child who suffered from lead poisoning due to the toys imported?  Our pediatrician told us that in his last fifteen years of medical practice he had seen 1 case of lead poisoning in a child.  I should point out that my area of PNW is full of 100 year old homes.  I feel certain that greater than 50 percent of  homes in this area have lead paint in them.  Yet, full fledged lead epidemic has eluded us…

Well, true to form, our illustrious congress went running around screeching “Here I come to save the day…”  and seriously lousy legislation was written and passed:  http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5gzRErK3z2lGewVe_Avsk-pIliAJg  Today, while in the midst of a recession, the true nature of this legislation has reared it’s ugly head:  http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=MjIyZTQ3YTExYzc4YTI0OGIxYmYyZGUzM2I2ZGMyZTI=

The gist of the matter is that librarians are being forced to pull books off shelves of libraries.  Small toy stores are going under.  Lives are being saved?  Doubt it.  Were those books just added to the shelves of the libraries?  No way, many have been there for more than 20 years.  I think it’s safe to assume the books aren’t being ingested. 

The most frightening part of this story is that the sweeping legislation being pushed on the US by an uber-liberal congress and a sleepy President will have far more consequences that we cannot possibly foresee.  Do you think a Dow Jones at 6k is bad?  Because most of the analysts I’m reading are predicting 5k or less for a lengthy period of time.  So the real question is, do you feel like eating some books now?
