“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Banning is the reflex answer for bad parenting

Apparently another kid got into the dish-washing detergent tabs thinking they were candy and killed himself by eating it. Predictably, parent groups are again calling for a ban on these extremely convenient products so dumb kids won't try to eat them.

I'm sorry, but how dumb of a parent are you if you have an orally-fixated child yet you fail to secure the cabinet doors under your sink where all the poison is?

Far too many parents think they live a no-fault existence. If anything bad happens to their brat, it's somebody else's fault and the whole dish-washing world must be inconvenienced because they didn't prevent their dumb kid from eating detergent.
