David Gregory’s Props and Pomposity

The D.C. police investigation of NBC hotshot David Gregory for waving around an empty ammo magazine on “Meet the Press” easily proves two things. First, D.C.’s “ammunition control” laws are ridiculous. But more importantly, once again, we find the arrogance of the national press knows no boundaries.

Let us stipulate that this kind of law is just plain stupid. Empty ammo magazines are less threatening than mosquitoes. The point is, however, that liberals like David Gregory do subscribe to this kind of idiotic law — for everyone else.

Was Gregory so ignorant that he didn’t know he was breaking a D.C. law? Nope. We learned NBC contacted the D.C. police and asked for permission to wave the props, and the cops said no. Then Gregory did it anyway. So not only did he believe he was above the law, he broke it so he could produce maximum buzz for his Sunday show.

Not only are they above the law — stupid or otherwise — but they rub our noses in it.

Argh!

INTERESTING: Of course, the diktat is the problem

Deaths Show Schools Need Power of the EpiPen

Proposed Solution

After a 13-year-old in Chicago died from eating Chinese food cooked in peanut oil at a class party, Illinois Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk introduced a bill modeled on the defibrillator legislation signed by Clinton. It would allow schools in every state to stock unprescribed EpiPens. In addition, the legislation would remove civil liability for the emergency use of EpiPens and provide incentives for underfunded schools to purchase them.

There no doubt will be legislators who complain about government spending and unfunded mandates. But to save a child like Ammaria isn’t hard. You don’t need to find a cure for a complex disease like cancer. You don’t need to revolutionize an industry, as Ralph Nader did with auto safety. All you need is empathy, common sense and a hundred bucks.

Of course, the “law” is the problem. It makes it impossible for intelligent human beings (i.e., principles; teachers; nurses; para-professionals; Mom; Dads; Janitors) to help their fellow man (i.e., the children in their custody).

Of course, the EpiPens, and anything else that’s needed, should be in place, ready for use, legal to use, and covered by appropriate liability relief.

Of course, the biased media has to take a swipe at the Tea Party and Fiscal Conservatives. (“Complain about spending and unfunded mandates”)

Can we point out that Gooferment Skrules, Gooferment diktats, politicians, and bureaucrats are really the root cause of this terrible tragic deaths?

If parents bought education for their children in a competitive market, you can be sure that the Owner of that school would have EpiPens and that the parent would have authorized the Owner of the school to take all actions necessary to protect their child.

Gooferment diktats, what you’d call “laws” — “laws” are like the “Law of Gravity”, the “Law of Supply and Demand”, or even the “Law of Unintended Consequences” — a real misnomer, are the problem and are not adaptable to changing conditions. A child has to die to prompt the Gooferment to do their job.

Politicians and bureaucrats are slow to react. In a free market, if your slow to react, you’re out of busniess.

So, stop the slam on the Tea Party and Fiscal Conservatives and aim at the politicians and bureaucrats who deserve the scorn!
