New Product with No Agenda Zone Expanded Uses

Warning the following post contains silly over the top bathroom humor

Believe it or not this is a real product. It’s called "Super Catcher".It catches your dogs poop so you won’t have to pick it up off the ground.The problem is that the poor dog has to be humiliated by wearing a clown’s hat on his butt.
There is even a demonstration video clip on the website.

Anyway I was thinking hey why not expand the use of this ingenious product.

Has The Government Gone Too Far?

There were 2 Stories that came out today that caught my attention

Maine law bans adults from smoking in cars with children
National-NBC) January 19, 2007 - A new law banning smoking with kids in the car has taken effect in Bangor, Maine.
Under the new law, anyone caught smoking in a vehicle with minors will face a $50 fine. Advocates say the ban will help children breathe easier, while opponents say it infringes on personal rights.
Several other areas have similar laws covering young children, but Bangor is the first to include everyone under 18.

And then there was this one

CA Proposes Ban On Spanking

Sacramento, CA (AHN) - California's state legislature is mulling a ban on spanking children, making California the first and only state to outlaw smacking kids on the behind.
Assemblywoman Sally Lieber, a Democrat, is proposing a bill to ban parents from spanking any child 3 years of age or younger. The bill would make spanking a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail or a fine up to $1,000, with first time offenders most likely only having to attend parenting classes. For the record, Assemblywoman Sally Lieber does not have children and says she was not slapped as a child. But she does have a cat named Snoop, which her veterinarian told her never to hit.

I thought it was interesting that the Assemblywoman does not have any kids and related the situation to hitting her cat. Kind of like if my gold fish jumps out of the tank it doesn’t do any good to give Goldy a little pat on the tail fin. I also thought the name of her cat (Snoop) was kind of ironic. When my daughter was younger (under 4) I did give her a little hit to the butt a couple of times for stuff like running away from me toward the street. OK I do cringe a little when I see parents spank their kids for stuff that seems really minor to me but I really don’t think the Government should interfere with that.

There are many child abuse laws already on the books.
Have we gone too far?

Keeping with tradition here is a “ No Agenda Zone” illustration relating to the subject. .
I was also was wondering what happens when a child turns 4 years old? Is it then no holds barred?

Little Johnny's parents have been waiting to give him
the presents behind their backs for 4 long years.
