One in Ten Million
by Josh Lee

Laws liberals proposed or have passed in various states:

- no sugary drinks in schools (bad for dental hygiene and hypertension)

- fee on carry out bags in stores (alternate source of income)

- no toy guns (suggestive of violence)

- no bottled water (it isn't really spring water anyway)                                                                                                            - no horse drawn carriages (discourages use of city cabs and busses)

- no goldfish (fish are treated badly in breeding farms)

- no Barbie dolls (makes unattractive girls feel bad)

- no crosshair symbols on fabrics (threatens violence, as in gun sights).

- no football kickoffs prior to noon (heavy traffic problem going shopping)

- no pledge of allegiance in school (prejudicial  treatment  of families with alternate government affiliations) 

- ban the word "welfare" (maybe "transitional living fund")

- no happy meal toys( toys given out with meals "judged" to be of little "nutritional value")

     Looks like a crucially busy legislative calendar on one side of the aisle.

     My God the list is endless. If it wasn't so sad it would be comical.
