Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

Savor it

This story in today's Arizona Republic would be innocuous except for one little sentence. Yes, it's a good law - as the story points out, in Arizona, refrigerators, but not children, need to be strapped in the backs of pickup trucks, which this law will change. Yes, it has a lot of support. But there is opposition to passing such a law. Toward the end of the article, we get this: "Opposition usually comes from two directions: Rural legislators who say some of their constituents can't afford any other mode of transportation [So they can buy a pickup truck but not a freakin' strap?], and [Wait for it!] Republicans who say the proposed law represents government interference with people's lives" (My emphasis).

Can you savor the irony? It's the best kind, too - the people who oppose this law probably don't even see it. That rules.

Now if the child riding around in the truck was on a feeding tube, the Republicans would be all for intervening in this matter.

Or if it was a gay kid on the back of a pickup truck. The Republicans would have something to say about that!

Yes, God forbid Congress should get involved in families' personal matters!
