    Re: Seller, beware: Feds cracking down on garage sales

    the federal government is cracking down on the secondhand sales of dangerous and defective products.
    It's illegal to sell dangerous products. Which as a Libertarian I think is a good thing. Protecting people from harm by third parties is the government's job after all. They have few other legitimate jobs. So if I understand your position here, you think it's OK to sell an exploding toaster as long as you are re-selling it? Interesting. So, are rape laws also unfair government meddling? You are too much, dude. You think pot smokers should go to jail, but also think it's fine to sell someone a toaster that explodes when you plug it in? Seriously, are you high?
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    The whole point of expanding government, so they can apply as much control as possible to our personal lives.

    Is there a website to look at recalls?

    Check out the link.

    So, since rape is obviously a bad thing, who gets to define what a, "dangerous product", is? Folks are supposed to automatically know that a particular Tonka truck is a dangerous toy? Of course not, that's why the Libbos want to be able to come on our property and point out all the toys that are considered, "dangerous products".

    You think pot smokers should go to jail, but also think it's fine to sell someone a toaster that explodes when you plug it in?
    Well, no doubt if the toaster would blow up when it's pugged in--which is a rediculus statement--it would already be in the garbage, because...uh...it blew up when the original owner plugged it in.

    Yeah, I know, common sense comes at a premium now-a-days.

    I've already explained that.

    If that incoherent rant weren't so long, I would make it my sig line.

    Why should consignment shops, garage salers ... etc get to sell recalled merchandise? That stuff is recalled for a reason. This is good intervention.

    Where in the hell is this "come onto our property" thing coming from. The program your source is going bonkers over is working with resale stores, not yard sales.

    A parent would be stupid not to periodically check to make sure their kids toys haven't been recalled. It's not that difficult.

    Obviously you didn't read the link I posted. Maybe I'm not the one that needs to do the research?

    I don't disagree with that, but I don't believe that the government needs to get involved.
