  •  I'm reminded of a story the spouse tells (3+ / 0-)

    about his first post-graduate teaching job in Alabama or Louisiana where he was told he'd have to take an oath and promise not to invite any black people to the campus. He refused and took a job somewhere else.
    Nowadays, the decision-makers want to regulate who visits anywhere. Children are banned from housing for the elderly. Grandparents are banned from having their own kitchens in single family housing. Chickens are banned from suburban gardens. Weeds are banned from suburban front lawns.
    I have some sympathy for people who don't want their guns to be banned. But, while they are worried about tools that shoot to kill, all they human rights are disappearing under the covers of the rule of law. Bill Maher's got a point.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
