Hey filthy progressives... time to write more laws. Make it a state level felony, and a federal felony, and a criminal civil rights case, then tortious law violations for any television set regardless of size to NOT have a 400 pound base that precludes tipping. Extra charges can also be filed for not having an 800 pound solid concrete not-tip pedestal. And too extra charges can be again tacked on for not having wall mounted screens tied with 13/16ths lag bolts bolted to 3/4" steel plates fasteden to 60 foot pilings set through the basement, and footed with concrete. Moreover, Section Ape landlords must provide these engineering upgrades in each room of the apartment including bath and kitchen. Only plans and drawings from a government approved engineer will be accepted and only work by union construction crews will be allowed.
The legislative intent of these "if it saves only one child its worth it" burdensome regulations is to hide the fact that the public schools industry cannot produce subjects capable of applying common sense in everyday life.

That is nothing compared to the harm caused by watching tv.

If the TV falls on a kid and kills it the parents should be.sterilized so as not to produce another slow and stupid kid. TV falling on kids is.just Gods way of skimming the stupid from the gene pool.
