May each of you have the heart to conceive, the understanding to direct, and the hand to execute works that will leave the world a little better for your having been here. -- Ronald Reagan

The Farcical Files

Here are some stories from around the world that just goes to show how well government anything is just soooooo marvelous. And there are people that want to turn their lives over to just the kind of people in these short stories.

Can't use the word "meep" at Danvers High School in Massachusetts. Been banned. It's from the "Muppets" and no one knows what it means. An attorney thought it so ridiculous that she sent an email with the offensive word to the school masters, and they reported her to the police. Meep, meep, meep, meep.....

There was a car accident in Dorset, England, injuring a child on a bike. The child had a fractured skull and the medics on the scene called for some help. The other paramedics were on break, and weren't allowed to go to the scene. Policy violation.

Dateline: England's Middlemoor Water Park. Man standing in shallow water got hit by out of control jet ski. Broken back and ribs and a punctured lung. The water was six inches deep, the man is lying there in excruciating pain, but the medics wouldn't fetch him, you see, because procedure said that the fire department had jurisdiction.

Don't take your kids here to play. In Watford Borough in England, parents have to stay outside the fence of the park, and their children will be attended to by government employees. Parents must be dangerous indeed. The knuckleheads that passed this law said it's to protect the kids.

Of course the knuckleheads in CA are passing legislation limiting the energy consumption of televisions. Not than anyone would think of going elsewhere to get the set they want.

And finally, about the government making the purchase of healthcare insurance mandatory under penalty of fine and/or jail. Some wit said, imagine the prison scene. "What are you in for?" "Rape and Murder." "What are you in for?" "Refused to buy government health insurance."

meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep meep
