Can the 'Cleveland miracle' help change lives and laws?
The miraculous rescue of three kidnapped women in Cleveland on Monday has attracted worldwide attention, but it also spotlights a more everyday tragedy - the estimated 1,000 Ohio children entrapped by the sex trade.

According to popular cultural chatter that supposedly matters, no matter what happens throughout our nation, it always seems to show us a need for more legislation, regulation and taxation. No matter the words spoken and the jokin', when current and previous laws have already been blatantly and deliberately broken, how do media whores justify creating and legislating and regulating and enforcing even more? We have to ignore the feeeellllinnnnggsss of the squealllllliiiinnnnggg.

This latest incident shows the need for more funding for the needs of everybody who does do-gooder deeds!

If it saves but one child from the deranged, strange, evil and wild, how can one with guns spread conservative tea-party poop, to keep tax-exempt and public funding from MY group? Regardless of the amount, it is MY good intentions that count; intentions that you can mention but only without criticism or bitchin'...like a Dayton, Ohio, SCLC charity kitchen.

The real problem is Democrats believe they can legislate anything. Air too dirty, we can legislate it. Too many gun deaths, we can legislate it. Don't have healthcare insurance, we can legislate it. Too many auto accidents, we can legislate it. People too fat, we can legislate it.
When our Congress and Senate convene, what are they doing? They are creating more legislation. More laws that work against the American people, and more regulations to follow. And since the creation of our federal, state and local governments, anytime they get together, they enact more laws.
Over 200 years of consistent law making and yet, we have never been able to legislate ourselves into utopia. So what are we to expect in the next 200 years? More legislation. The US tax regulations are already twice as thick as the Holy Bible.

It would make many of us smile, if government gave us a break and did NOTHING for awhile. The perceived need to do some things encourages and enables and excuses them to do dumb things, singing the same old song, the unintended consequences coming after they are gone.

"And with this latest airline/airplane accident/crash [the tenth shown on TV in ten years?], there are more calls [from whom?] for stricter rules and regulations throughout the nation [of 315 million people]."
