    Moronic Rush to Name Laws After the Dead

    The full stupidity of naming laws after dead people is laid wide open in New Jersey (shocking I know). The rationale for "Pamela's Law" comes crashing down around their ears.

    After many televised tears, hand-wringing and media segments with theme music, the victim of "bath salts" turns out not to have "bath salts" in her system.

    All "Laws Named After Dead People" are knee-jerk gobbledeegook. Never letthe possibility of crafting useless legislation after a moderately sad event go to waste. We have political careers to worry about here.

    Ah, but we can have family members come to testify and cry for everyone. If anyone opposes it, the family can then appear in the media and cry about the callous disregard for whatever happened to their family member.

    I guess the governor gets a lot of harumphs.
    The price of freedom is blood. The moment we are no longer willing to pay that price, we are no longer free.

    Then he gets a paddle ball to play with, and the power hungry "adviser" sends a black guy to the town to serve as sheriff.

    Wait...
    Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war!


    A tactical retreat is not a bad response to a surprise assault, you know. First you survive. Then you choose your own ground. Then you counterattack.
