I wrote the other day of some of my posts not budging the needle of reader interest, and this particular subject, of which I wrote a couple months ago, was one of those, providing me with no little bit of consternation. We are losing our freedoms, Americans, and if we don’t wake up and give a rip, and then do something about it, we’ll be living sooner, rather than later, in an Orwellian nightmare. Ed Driscoll’s provocative piece on the awful piece of legislation euphemistically known as the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CSPIA) talks about one of the many unintended consequences of this wretched and unnecessary legislation:

2009, A Book Banning Odyssey

Please watch the video highlighting this travesty (voted for by both my Republican senators, of course–anyone still wonder why I pulled the Libertarian lever in November?), get informed, get ticked, and do something about it.

    Fair question. I’ve contacted my senators and plan to again, because this thing has got to be modified, at the very least. It’s frustrating, though, I know, and you’ve got two loser senators in PA…

    do what?

    It’s not that people don’t care, but gov’t is so big, what CAN we do?

    The difference between the right and the left is the left will organize, the right doesn’t like to join anything. Our independent nature has cost us dearly. We’re so busy actually living our own lives that we have no time left over to start a movement. Whilst the left would rather run somebody else’s life, so they start movement after movement to make it easier to run others’ lives!

    So, other than voting against the left – what can we do?

    How come they don’t take cigarettes off the shelves? Surely they’re more dangerous than what’s in old books, zippers and toys!

    Wait, Laurie…you’re asking the government to do something that makes sense. Don’t you think that’s just a little MUCH? Now really…

    Silly me. I was thinking, too, about all the drug commercials I see, where they’re telling you the side effects that include possible stroke, heart attack, kidney or liver damage, cancer, etc. Shouldn’t they outlaw them too? Oh, I’m sorry, too sensible.

    This world is getting curiouser and curiouser.
