I thought about how kids in my neighborhood have to wear helmets, knee pads and elbow pads just to ride a ****ing bicycle because of some moronic zealots decided every child needs to be protected from injury. Now through the summer months you hardly find a kid riding a bike, who the **** would want to with all that crap on in 90 degree weather?
I think of being raised in the 60's and many people smoked. My parents did and they did it in our home and car in front of us kids. Today my parents would be portrayed as those who committed child abuse because they smoked in front of us. I had the most loving parents a child could ever dream of getting. I find their rhetoric quite offensive. I have even read in one instance in Arizona where their ordinance forbid a person to drive through their city in their car smoking. If caught it will result in a fine. I don't know what happened to personal responsibility and minding your own business because there are sure a lot of control freaks out there who have pretty long noses.
