Can't wait! You?
Can't wait to carry a concealed weapon, take an 8-year-old hunting, and...and...well, I'm too excited to finish the thought.
This group of legislators really needs a full-time job. This part-time Legislature, with full-time pay, complete with health insurance and $88 per diem for showing up for five minutes, is loopy.
You read about a legislator explaining why it is dangerous to wait until age 12 to hunt and you think it is a Jon Stewart spoof but, alas, it is not. Why mention the lobbyist's legislator by name but he drives in from Waterford to the Capitol. Too much time to think. As my 5th grade nun used to repeat often, "An idle mind is the devil's workshop."
There is a gas in the dome that makes people think they are acting rationally when they are loony as ducks. Think about Senators Ellis, Decker, Lassa, who normally think rationally, voting to override the Governor's veto of the concealed weapons veto. Why? Do they really want minister Jones patting down folks as they come into church? Will principals of our schools have to do the same or could we train those new hunters, the eight-year-olds, how to find concealed weapons?
Time for a part time Legislature; two-year terms for Governor and other constitutional officers. The nuts have taken over!
Ah, but soon you can pack heat. Then look out for fender-benders because the guy whose car was damaged might get out shooting. Welcome to the world of Dave Zien! Welcome.
