<quoted text> We will never know what will be next until it is to late to do something about. I am for one totaly against the government trying to run peoples lives. Gone are the days when kids were seen but not heard. The job of government is to collect taxes, deliver the mail and declare war nothing more. Wedge issues like kids first, no child left behind, gay marriage, illegals, sin tax, abortion. Stop this maddness and get out of peoples lives. We expect far to much from kids today and we ask why are they in so much trouble all the time what ever happen to the responsibility of the parents to there kids. Stop empowering the police empower your kids. No ruler of any kind has ever thought he is spending to much money trying to bring his own citizens at bay.
The voters should demand these legislators and their followers publicly demonstrate their ability to stick their nose up their own arses, before trying or doing it to others.

Many of our state and federal legislators are a lot like Castro or any other petty dictators along their followers in their unquenchable thirst for total state control.

We The Herd are allowed to breed and increase the states herd of tax cows. We are allowed to call them our children but the state demands they know best how to handle their assets

I already know the type of person you are. You are the type who was picked on because you were a dork in school, now you are older and just want to use your authority just to punk back at other people. You are all the same, all you cops and juvenile 'workers' are just on power trips to make up for getting picked on when younger. My kid is EDUCATED and knows the difference between realty and playland. You are just ignorant, your kid will go behind your back and do things you forbid theme to do, and not know anything because you shelter them and end up on a stripper pole!
your kids have to be embarrased to have a person with your lack of common sense as a dad....While I did very well in high school, I was not smart enough to get a degree from college...It's not that I couldn't have...I didn't realize the value of advanced education, therefore I didn't go to college...now this was 1957 and a totally different situation than exists today. I have been an office manager, service manager at several LARGE auto dealerships, I am a master mechanic for V.W., Mercedes, Porsche, and Audi. I owned and operated Import Auto Service in Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and Logansport Indiana. I was the CEO of Just Brakes Inc. in Indiana for several years. I am not on a power trip, I have seen these kids come to my businesses to seek employment, and many of them are just not worth the chance. That is very sad, but it is YOUR fault....brains are like computers...GARBAGE IN....GARBAGE OUT...You have the freedom to raise kids the way you see fit, but you do them no favors by not living up to your responsibility as a parent.....Kids do a horrible job of raising themselves....You sir, are a liability to your own children.....VERY sad

Carmel John. I bet you drive in the fast lane doing 50. It's not the government's job should raise your child. That's your job.

Maybe they can work out a compromise, where they can focus their efforts by only enforcing this on Sunday. No drinking, no video games, nothing at all to come between the people and the Jesus. Let us pray, and let us be baptized in the cleansing waters of our shame, delusion, and self-righteousness. Hallelujah and pass the gravy.

I played violent video games, watched violent movies and tv shows, and guess what, I am college educated, have a good family, and I have never knocked over a liquor store, or killed anyone. Why? My parents actually paid attention to the amount of time I was doing these things and made sure that I grasped the fact that there were things to do <gasp> outside with people from time to time. If parents actually spent time with their children, and didn't use TV, movies, X-Boxes and PS3s as babysitters, their children might actually turn out to have half a brain...
