Two stories caught my eye this week which indicate to me we should be seriously cutting back onthe lame bureaucracies we have put in place over the last 100 years or so. First is this article from across the pond:
I heard about this idiocy and basically decided the socialists in the UK/EU were just being their silly selves. Until I saw this article:
It seemed like such a practical and good arrangement, the kind that moms have been making with each other since the beginning of time: One woman would watch her friendsâ€™Â kids while they waited for the school bus so the other women could go to their jobs.
And then the Michigan Department of Human Services stepped in to tell the Good Samaritan mother that she was facing fines and possible jail time for running an illegal day care center.
â€œTo me, this is just a friend helping a friend, plain and simple,â€ Lisa Snyder said during an interview with TODAYâ€™s Matt Lauer from her Middleville, Mich., home Tuesday.
This is what these bureaucrats are wasting their time and our tax money on? The Orwellian nature of this intrusion into simple neighborly support is a clear indication We The People need to dismantle the bureaucracies which have grown fat, bored and useless.
What a crock. This is the “Nanny State” on steroids – or would it be more accurate to say “acting like a hemorrhoid”?
