That's it. I'm not setting foot in this madhouse.

Ah... There are far more bizarre laws on the books in all the states which are not actually enforced.   I think their existence is due to political fodder from battles to get legislation passed in which someone tries to get a Bill shot down by putting ridiculous or even unpopular additions into the Bill.  Either that or some nutcase put it out there and it will be shot down.   Basically a physicians oath to do no harm, and fear of lawsuits  will still be in place and dictate patient care  challenge such things if they did get passed.

It took us 5 years to convince Peter to visit here and Pen un-does it with one blog.

What 'er you gonna' do about that Pen ?.......PEN !!!

I read this last week and it wasn't so much that I was insulted to be compared to a cow or a pig as it was that I was inFURiated that ANYone thinks ANY animal should be left to suffer when there's something we can do about it. I can say from very recent experience that when you are suffering and you KNOW there is help but you can't get it, you feel like all of existence has abandoned you. 

I might be able to understand if this was expressed in the ancient past. Terry's comments were made last week and his motivations matter not. Anyone who can get up and say something like this expecting to gain any sort of leverage in this day and age needs to be summarily shunned by all thinking people.

fifty bizarre state laws

My favorite if you know anyone from Missouri :-P

Missouri
Children may buy shotguns in Kansas City, but not toy cap guns.

Wait.... that children with shotguns probably did not help convince Peter to come here. 

Shun away.   Just please stop short of stoning please.  Hooray for that lost art of Civil Discourse.    I would hate getting pelted over something stupid like political process.  That process should never be confused with thinking.   Obviously, as you can see there was little thinking  from what was proposed here.

@- Chig. HEY, you could BURN a FINGer with one of those cap guns.

Yeah, you also can't buy a toy gun, water or otherwise, that looks even remotely real.

I found that out when I was trying to "arm" myself for LtAdam's "The Vault". I had to whittle my own.

...and don't worry, no stoning,...sets a bad example.
