It was a Nintendo Game Boy

A woman in Columbia, South Carolina had her 12 year old son arrested for opening his Christmas present too early. Given the ongoing disintegration of the American family it’s likely such incidents will become more common. Many of today’s parents, especially single mothers, are incapable of controlling their kids, so why not let the police handle it? Only the unruliest of brats would refuse to eat his vegetables and pick up his toys if he knew his belligerence would result in being Tasered, handcuffed, and taken downtown to spend the night in a jail cell. Sassing your mom is one thing, but sassing a burly cop with a billy-club and gun is another. At some point in the future expect a separate police force to be created that specializes entirely in child discipline.

  1. Van, how about writing something about trans fats in New York? I was reading the comments from a bunch of wussies going off on how great the ban is. These people were basically begging for more government intrusion in their lives, to serve the cause of banning an ingredient that people have been eating for decades. No call for labeling, no call for personal responsibility, just setting up another well-pensioned, unionized, government bureaucracy to monitor what kind of grease restaurants use. F*ing A., I need a drink just thinking about it. Give these people bread and circuses, and make sure to tell them the bread has no trans fats so they wont panic their lard asses.

  2. It's crazy, isn't it? We all know what a healthy diet is. I don't think thiss really about what unhealthy people eat, either - because if you are eating too much trans-fat you aren't eating right, trans-fat or not. It's that people who already eat sensibly like the idea of it. Similar to recycling your cans, which is also pointless, but the idea of it appeals, to this same category of person.

  3. At some point in the future expect a separate police force to be created that specializes entirely in child discipline. Sounds good to me.
