Listened to the “news”.
One of the stories (at ~2310) was that “drop down cribs” were being sold on Craig’s List.
You can do anything but throw them away.
Isn’t that a Fifth Amendment “taking”?
The three that they cited were: 130, 150, and 175 each.
That’s a regulation that takes that wealth from individuals.
It’s to prevent 18 deaths over 5 years across 300,000,000 people.
That’s a tax. And, an infringement. And, it’s making a tradeoff decision for people.
But, maybe that’s a risk that a parent would take.
Maybe they’d rather have an old $130 crib rather than a new more expensive one. And, have the freedom to use the difference as they see fit. Maybe it’s for food, or rent, or a six pack.
It should be their choice.
Then Nanny State takes away our liberties.

One thought on “POLITICAL: Cribs can be … anything”
But the CHILDREN!!! THE CHIIIIIILLLLLDREEEENNNNN!!!
And seriously, if the buyer feels that strongly about “fixing” the problem, it can be by retrofitting a couple of screws or even just putting a box under the drop side to keep it from dropping.
We’ve slept all three of our kids in one, and plan to do so with the fourth. After that, I guess it’s firewood?
What’s next? Requiring me to put padded flooring in my house in case one of the little treasures might trip and fall?
