There Are Rules

America is a society of laws, rules, and regulations. That is its greatest failing and a symptom of the disease that may well kill her in the not-to-distant future.

There are just so very rules and regulation...
There Are Rules, Rules For or Against Everything

There are rules for or, more often these days, against so many things, even many things that we’d, as normal people, would never think anyone would make a rule about. ;-)

But hey! The government is made up of lawmakers and law enforcement personnel. They need to justify and secure the future of their jobs somehow. Protecting us from ourselves is just the easiest way for them to do that.

And, by the Gods, dogs smoking and drinking wine while skateboarding is obviously a clear and present danger to society! Who knows what it could lead to.
