    Nice video. Politicians think that we can’t think for ourselves. In many cases they may be right. One problem, though. They aren’t any smarter than we are.

    I usually don’t link to other sites, but Mish is in rare form today. An economic primer:

    And to think, all this banning of shit was unthinkable only a short time ago.

    That was great! Can’t wait until they ban banning!

    I’d like to see an article or video on what has been banned since 2000. Maybe you can put the word out at reason.

    This is going to sound really terrible, but I laughed at LA’s attempt to ban murder for 40 hours and the fact that there were 3 homicides in that period. It was almost like the killers did it out of spite.

    No drinking in college? Then why would one go?

    driving while shaving? why did they have to specifically ban that? If you killed someone in your car and it came out that you had been shaving, surely thats gonna be an aggravating factor already? If you have to specifically ban driving while shaving, then surely driving while playing kerplunk needs banning too..

    Banned from smiling for your driver’s licence photo? Are you shitting me?

    So the lady behind the counter who inevitably says “big smile!” just before snapping my picture for some government-mandated official documentation is actually aiding and abetting criminal behavior? Wow.

    How much do you wanna bet there’s a clause in that legislation barring victims of this insanity from retroactivey suing the DMV…

    Very well done but so depressing!

    Makes me want to play a game of tag while driving, using my driver’s license for which I smiled, with a transfat hotdog in hand on my way to buy a single cigar. Breakin’ the law, breakin’ the law!

    Does anyone have the exact date when common sense became uncommon?

    That was interesting. The more the US accepts socialist ideologies, the more that will be banned.
