    The government has made it ILLEGAL to sell a piece of candy with a toy in it that may be a choking hazard? Holy hell.

    I don't know how I can manage to make it home from work, make dinner and get to bed without some legislation to guide me...

    More nanny state insanity. :mad:

    We are surrounded by an overarching federal control that has reached science fiction like proportions.

    I doubt there isn't a damn thing out there that a kid couldn't find some way to choke on it. :( I feel for the folks that endure such tragedies, I really do. But this shit has got to stop! :mad: People need to be self reliant and responsible for themsleves and there loved ones, no amount of Nanny State bulshit is going to prevent every and all accidents! :mad: :(

    I agree. It's nuts.

    But think about it. So many parents out there are dumb as a bag of hammers (and that's being unfair to hammers) and they'd leave their infant with one of these things then sue the bejesus out of the store that sold them and the company that makes them after their kid chokes to death.

    Nanny-stateism is extremely bad. Stupid, thoughtless, neglectful parents are also bad.

    Wow...just....wow..:rolleyes:
    Ya know, if this nanny state crap keeps on going, our kids and grandkids will wonder how the older generations were able to survive into adulthood, having access to dangerous things such as chocolate egg toys and cereal box prizes:eek:

    Damn near choked to death when I read this as I was swallowing at the time. The paramedics have gone home now and I should be fine if the doctor says so tomorrow.

    In the mean time I think we ought to outlaw the internet because it can cause people like me to choke (or perhaps have a heart attack!) when they read this stupid crap that politicians think we want.

    Go and run with scissors! Swim immediately after eating! Run up to strange dogs and try to get them to lick your face! Kiss your mother-in-law and use your tongue! Tell your father-in-law he has a pretty face! Stick a bean up your nose! Grab a snake! Poke a wasp nest!

    Pretty soon all of these will be illegal. Yet, at the same time, it will still be legal to do one of the most dangerous things known to man. Live. Life is dangerous. Get over it. If it is too dangerous for you perhaps you should make your life less dangerous. For me though, it is just dangerous enough to make it exciting, and I don't need any damned politician to tell me what not to do for my own safety. Damn worthless politicians have never lived what I would call a life anyhow.

    I do think about it, and here's what I think. First off. Personal accountability. No lawsuit should be allowed if a parent is negligent and a child is injured or dies. The ONLY person(s) who are responsible is/are the parent or guardian. The parent or guardian should be charged with neglect/endangerment/manslaughter etc. We do not need the government to tell us if something is dangerous, if a product is dangerous, well, we have a really great information network system with the internet and the media. If a product poses a genuine hazard, the the company making the product wont be selling very many and the product will disappear from the shelves. The only requirement I would like to see, if an item is proven of poor/dangerous design, the "company" would be required to purchase back from the consumer at full price paid and cover any shipping costs. This in itself would be incentive to properly test their products for safety. The only thing these nanny laws do is to make people, or should I say sheeple, more dependent on the government for everything in their lives. Which is what many IN the government want, dependency.

    I disagree the purpose of these laws is to proof to you that government is conditioning you to a new world where the state approves what is good for you and by disobeying it you have committed a punishable offense.:mad:

    These funnies they get away with and slowly the public will be happy since big brother takes responsibility for all actions. Gun control, Birth control, Food control, Manufacture control... the list is endless until all citizens are state controlled.:mad:

    First they came for your God, but I did not have one so it did not bother me.

    Then they came for your guns, but I did not own any so it did not matter to me.

    Then they came for my money and I had plenty until they took it all.

    Then they came for my candy and that pissed me right the "F" off.

    I agree 100%. The trouble is, that isn't how our litigious insane legal system works these days.
