USA Nanny State Knows Best

By know most of us realize that Government agencies think that the job of rearing children and older folks be best left to government. When parents get old government agencies know best how to spend their money, the know where they should be locked down at , what kinds of drugs they should take and whom they should see, if anyone at all.

When it comes to children we have heard of *government intervention because of overweight children , or more recently because parents took pictures of their children while bathing. A.J. and Lisa Demaree, of Peoria, Arizona, took photos of their three daughters, all under the age of five, naked in the bathtub. When they went to Walmart to have the photos developed the clerk called the cops who in turn called "child protective services." The Demarees had their children seized and placed in foster care for a month. The parents' names were placed on the state's sex offender registry. Lisa was suspended from her school job for a year. They spent $75,000 in attorney's fees to get their children back.

A.J. Demaree said, "Ninety-nine percent of the families in America have these exact same photos." Should 95% of families have their children removed? Don't ask them that! You might not like the answer.

Lisa Demaree said, "As crazy as it may seem, what you may think are the most beautiful innocent pictures of your children may be seen as something completely different and completely perverted." You are right Lisa, the government is the only thing that's pure, it collective sacrifice for the good of the society as a whole, this has it roots in socialism where the individual sacrifices his rights for the collective good, some of us who have lived through this before and are familiar with this new current craze that is sweeping the United States.

In all societies you are going to have overweight children, often this is a medical condition that can't be helped. Just as A.J. Demaree found out the hard way , when the government takes the high moral road in deciding who gets to keep their children based on whose criteria the Health Czar? How many pounds is too many? What if the child is over by 2 ounces? Can you picture the disbelieving parents crying as their children are removed? Sorry Mr. Smith your child is 1.7 ounces overweight, he must be removed! I am just following the rules!
