Nanny State

You think I’m jokin’ ya when I tell you we are in serious danger of becoming vassals of the State?  That our individual Liberties are being eroded to the point of nothing?

Check this out:

We are no longer trusted to effectively parent our children:

Happy Meal toys and other promotions that come with high-calorie children’s meals will soon be banned in parts of Santa Clara County unless the restaurants meet nutritional guidelines approved Tuesday by the county Board of Supervisors.



Gone are the days when I can decide if I wanna parent my children.  That role is now being played by the State.  Gone are the days when the task of raising my kids fell on me.  Gone are the days when that responsibility fell on me and weighed on me and I made decisions that were in the best interest of my family.


Now, now I have come to a place where if I can do it, it must be okay.  ‘Cause if it wasn’t okay, the State would outlaw it or ban it.  So, in essence, I can just blithely go through life without a worry or a care ’cause the government has me taken care of.  Do I need to prepare for my future?  Nope.  Do I need to prepare for my kids future?  Nope.  Do I need to be responsible and not spend more money than I have?  Nope.

What have we become?
