GOVERNMENT: JUST STUPID?

    I'm amazed by some of the pointless and stupid things I see being done by government. I think the example posted below comes close to winning the kupie prize.

    Well, you're opening up a can of worms here, as you surely know. Those of us who are in favor of abortion and who don't think zygote/embryo/fetus = child obviously think this rule is stupid, but those who are on the opposite side of this issue are probably happy with it. (Although frankly this sounds like a spoof.)

    Yeah, it seems kind of 'off' to me too.

    Here's what I found on the "about" page:

    The Washington Free Beacon, a project of the 501(c)4 Center for American Freedom, is a nonprofit online newspaper that began publication on February 7, 2012. Dedicated to uncovering the stories that the professional left hopes will never see the light of day, the Free Beacon produces in-depth and investigative reporting on a wide range of issues, including public policy, government affairs, international security, and media criticism. Whether it’s exposing cronyism, dissecting the relationship between the progressive movement and the mainstream media, finding out just who is shaping our domestic and foreign policy and why, or highlighting the threats to American security and peace in a dangerous world, the Free Beacon is committed to serving the public interest by reporting news and information that currently is not being fully covered by other news organizations.

    They're a 501(c)(4) -- means they can lobby.
    The "professional left"? :confused:

    There may be something else going on here.....
