HOUSTON -- A 2-year-old girl is fighting for her life after she ingested nine magnetized balls, similar to a now-banned toy called "Buckyballs."
The parents told KHOU they were unaware that the toy and similar products had been banned from the U.S. by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Of course if they knw about the ban, THAT would have made them better parents. . There is no ban on dice, I wonder how many they parents let the kid suck down?
These are not your typical refrigerator magnets. Rare earth from what I remember.
Yeah, you are still here. BUT look at who you hang out with in the interweb. [/HUMOR]Who am I to decide on who can have fun and who can't? I played with magnets when I was a kid and look I'm still here.
This has been the socialist philosophy all along. Individualism and Socialism are completely incompatible. Under socialism you are NOT capable of making your own choices, all choices must be made by the collective.Yeah, you are still here. BUT look at who you hang out with in the interweb. [/HUMOR]
But more seriously, I think this is a huge part of the intrusive nature of the progressive movement. They seriously think that they can make everything right by just banning anything and everything they deem is bad (to them at least). Their vision of the government is an all-powerful entity which promises universal peace and safety if you just give up the notion that you can run your own life correctly and let government officials and bureaucracy make all decisions for you. And part of moving towards that goal is dumbing down enough people to actually believing that.
