Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

To Make a Safer World
Topic: Out of Flyover Land
I live and work in Cedar Rapids Iowa.
Let me make it clear that I am STILL from
Kentucky. That last sentence was to placate
the departed spirit of my maternal Grandfather
Stonewall Jackson Puckett. ;-)

So yes I live and work in Cedar Rapids, and
recently I found out that the good citizens
to the South of me, in Iowa City have taken
steps to make our area safer.

To wit they have declared Iowa City a

Drum roll, clash of cymbals!


No Really that is what they did, passed an ordinance and EVEN put up warning signs!

"the City Council of Iowa City declared the city a nuclear free zone; signs noting this fact, such as this one on Dubuque Street, are usually found near city limits."

I feel SO much safer to know that a City a half hour drive has taken such steps to ensure that possession of a Nuclear Bomb will be illegal.

Don't you wish YOU were this safe?

You know the really sad part? That is EXACTLY the way the Left thinks about National Security, Rogue States and International Terrorism.

Just pass an Ordinance, put up some signs and naturally all the nasty people in the world will read and obey them. If not then put massive financial investment in Literacy Programs.

I try to picture in my mind sometimes an Iowa City Cop enforcing that ordinance.

"Put the Atomic bomb on the ground and raise your hands in the air.

Put the atomic bomb on the ground and------------

White noise.

Oh there is ONE other slight problem, those signs? They cost $80 a piece and they keep coming up missing.

Your Tax dollars at work, to make a Safer Nuclear Free World. Forget about the potholes in the streets some things are more important.

Do I really need to mention Iowa City is a University town? I say town because the population is 60K and the Student body is 30K.

They do the same shit here in NZ. We keep having these debates on Genetic Engineering - this council tried to ban GE food etc... and so passed a bi law to do so - of course its impossible to do such a thing as GE is every where - in life through natural changes and in the supermarket. Meh.
