Harsanyi on "Mother may I?"

The Denver Post's David Harsanyi has a great piece on the nanny government disease that infects Republican and Democrats legislators alike.

Money Quote:

If all you need is a Jesus Complex and a seat in the legislature to ban unhealthy activity, what stops [Betty] Boyd, [Steve] Johnson et al. from banning hazardous activities like eating at fast-food restaurants, rock climbing or getting married?

Me: Priceless.

Way to go Steve Johnson! You got rid of TABOR, now go after business owners! How can you POSSIBLY call yourself a Republican? Those business owners FOUGHT and PAID from their own pocket to keep their right while the rest of Colorado sat around and lost the right to own private property. Now Steve wants to take thier freedom away?!?

Let me go ahead and write your next proposal Steve...."Be it resolved that the State of Colorado, knowing what is best for all of its subjects...I mean citizens, now claims ownership of all personal and private property that may be used for any legal activity that we deem bad for them. The State may also sell said property to pay for any expenditure deemed neccessary to protect the idiots, I mean citizens, from themselves."

While you are at the Homeschool Day at the Capital tomorrow, why don't you go ahead and announce your support for taking the rights of parents to educate their children in the way they deem best. You are not a conservative, you are not even near what the Republican Party Platform stands for on most issues. (go to to look it up)

Sorry, rant over...just sick and tired of the liberal Larimer County reps screwing it up for the rest of us.
