Let’s Enact Common Sense Laws

If you are drunk and fall down the steps at the bar, pay your own darn hospital bills. Common sense and natural consequences, next time don’t drink so much.


If you break into my house, you are not a law abiding citizen and you therefore forfeit your rights. Even if my house falls down on top of you because I haven’t made repairs, you’re a criminal and deserve nothing. Common sense and natural consequences, quit breaking the law and you get your rights back.

If you are visiting my house and the wall caves in. I’ll pay your hospital bill. If you jump off my porch to impress your girlfriend and break your leg, put on your big boy panties, suck it up and pay your own bill.

Maybe if society went back to making our kids take responsibility for their actions, we would have a culture of adults that work hard and accept responsibility and consequences, instead of blaming or suing everyone else.



In Action Thriller, Bolt Action from Champagne Books, Detective Leslie Bolt uses sarcasm instead of beating the crap out of stupid people. She is a smart talking, gun hording, Harley riding investigator forced to work a serial murder case with her sexy ex-lover. After a childhood of abuse suffered at the hand of her father, Leslie sleeps with a Ruger Blackhawk .357 under her pillow, has a Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker rifle in her broom closet, and a Saturday Night Special stashed in her road-hog cookie jar. The body count mounts and Detective Bolt must conquer her own past, as she races to capture “The State Quarter Killer” before her sister is the next victim.

Careful careful. Big brother may tap your phone. You're going against the drive to push us all into an entitlement mentality.

BTW - You're my kind of woman, VR. A true rare breed in today's world.

Agreed.

Part of the reason there are so many laws to "play" with is because we have too many lawyers tapping their pencils waiting for someone to hop out of their car and drag themselves though the attorney's door.

I was in a vehicle with my father-in-law and we were hit by a tractor. Neither one of us hurt, just vehicle damage. Out of the blue a lawyer called me at how wanted to know if I wanted to sue. For what? I wasn't hurt!

Yup too many lawyers with nothing to do.

Remember when the government enacted regulation to protect the common man from big business?

Wonder what happened to those days? Where has our own common sense and survival skills gone?

It's time for the common man/woman to take a stand and show big business what for. We can revert back to times when we were all more self sufficient, during war time (1940s) families planted victory gardens and had livestock such as chickens or rabbits. neighborhoods were communities and everyone knew their neighbors and helped each other.

In the past families participated because of the depression, now we face similar economic blight as well as tainted foods (GMOs) which our government is not protecting us from. It's a matter of survival if we want to remain healthy.

Agree Deb, but try to get people to economically boycott a company. We have a long list of corps we WILL not use (Burger King, Target, Heinz, AARP, tc) and we told 'em. They know most don't care. When we discussed at a community event one evening all the stuff these companies did, the majority at the table stated flat out it didn't matter long as they were nearby, or cheaper, or... I think they need to pump more fiber into the water supply.

Too bad we couldn't fine the lawyers for bringing stupid lawsuits to court.

There is a penalty for bringing a frivilous lawsuit, as I understand it. But the onus is on the one filing the suit and not the lawyer. I'd love to hear that I wrong about that last part.
