Reese On The Nanny State

Charley Reese, one of my more often read columnists, writes about the Nanny State here.

Reese is often an enigma. Despite the last sentence in his Nanny State rant, I believe he wrote sometime back that he's a registered Democrat.

Is the Nanny State holding you back from something Fred?

Since Bush took office, Republicans put the kibosh on our most important federal nanny, the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Look where that has gotten us.

Yes Fred; Reese is a registered (blue dog) Democrat. He lives in Orlando, FL and has no revealed email address.
I have to disagree with 8:26's statement: "...our most important federal nanny, the Consumer Product Safety Commission." The most important federal nanny is the IRS. It makes possible all of the other nannies and look where that has gotten us since Woodrow Wilson took office.

By definition, the IRS is not a nanny.

Internal Revenue SERVICE: Ignore them, go to jail.
California Highway gestapo (excuse me) Patrol: fail to wear a seatbelt; pay the "fine" or go to jail. All government "nannies" are backed by the guns of the state. All for our own good of course.

I feel very much safer knowing that guns, bombs, and surveillence systems, staffed by public employees, are between me and the likes of ΛΕΟΝΙΔΑΣ.

I'm absolutely certain that without those protections, he would do things for his "own good" that would be very detrimental to my well being.
