Now why would we want to further empower and enrich one of the more corrupt industries in our midst?

Customer Service: "Hello, this is GEICO. How may I help you today?"

Caller: "Yes, I have a new stupid person living in my house, and I'd like to get a quote."

CS: "I'd be happy to help you. How old is the stupid person, and what is the relationship?"

Caller: "30....it's my brother."

CS: "Does the stupid person possess financial stupidity, moral stupidity, political stupidity, legislative stupidity, or lack of common sense stupidiy?"

Caller: "financial and political, I think. But partly common sense."

CS: *typing into computer* "Has the stupid person reproduced or is planning on reproduction?"

Caller: "I don't know. I don't think so."

CS: "Do you have stupid person safety or warning measures in the house?"

Caller: "We have a caution sign on the front door, but no alarm system."

CS: "Does the stupid person interact with the public on a regular basis?"

Caller: "Only on the job."

CS: "Does the stupid person vote?"

Caller: *sigh* "Regularly."

CS: "Ooooh. We may have a problem. We do require extra liability and references for stupid voters. Let me transfer you to my supervisor."

Because if they suddenly required insurance for stupid people, everyone's rates would skyrocket, and they'd vote for Congress to smack down the insurance companies . . . and wouldn't THAT be satisfying?

The dangerous dogs act is a stupid law that was rushed into place, I really wish 'they' hadn't just dove in. As if that law has changed anything anyway other than the fact that some amazing dog breeds can't be legally owned .
