Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, the United States is slowly but surely losing its place in the world as the "Land of the Free." As each day passes, more and more babysitter laws get put into place that restrict our freedoms further and further. I am not saying that the country should be let to run rampant and the population do whatever it wants to but come on, there are some things that should be left alone.
Smoking is a big part of my life and has been for many years. I do mean cigarettes and true tobacco products, not the "other" kind.I understand the need to have laws in place to protect the general public in restricting smoking in certain areas. However, if I want to smoke in my home or car, no one and I do mean NO ONE is going to tell me I can't.
Recently, Congress stuck it's proverbial "beak" into Major League Baseball in "suggesting" that they restrict the use of smokeless tobacco as it may influence children to use it. Are you kidding me??? There is no restrictions on high energy drinks which will likely kill a child a whole lot quicker than any pinch of dip will.
There are no restrictions in which video games parents or children are allowed to buy and play but Bugs Fucking Bunny was too violent to leave on TV the way it was. They rate the video games to help guide parents but nothin' for nothin', there are so many coming out that the average individual would need a full time secretary just to keep up with them.
Our country has so many people who think they are doing "good" for the general public when in actuality, they are slowly killing the ideals this country was formed upon. But that's ok, they can continue they way they are going. When the majority of the population wakes up and realizes they can't take a shit in their own home because it is "environmentally unfriendly" because they eat products with artificial ingredients then maybe, just maybe, America can go back to being the "Land of the Free" that it was intended to be.
