When everything is regulated, it becomes technical and loses all common sense

Brussel-Boy

COMMENT: Loved your candid picture of the little boy in Brussels taking a leak on Europe. It is so true living here.

REPLY: Well, it is a shame but all governments are the same. Once they have power, they keep grabbing more and believe the world cannot exist without them. On the lighter side, if that fountain was in the USA, the people who designed it, built it, and looked at it, would all go the prison for child pornography. The number of 18 year olds charged as child molesters because their girlfriend was 17 just illustrates how prosecutors lack common sense. If they can fit it into the law – they do. Police even sought a search warrant to take pictures of 17 year-old’s erection.

If there was a bank run and everyone took out their money in cash, the cops could confiscate it arguing people do not normally carry cash only criminals and get away with it. When everything is regulated, it becomes technical and loses all common sense.
