It seems that serial legislator, US Senator from New York, Chuckie "No Law is Too Good to Pass" Schumer is at it again. As reported in Metro, New York City's #1 Free Daily Newspaper, "After tragedy, law named for Avonte," January 27, 2014; see: http://newyork.metro.us/digital_launch.aspx?eid=362e913e-4c4c-48be-80c4-2db48c5d9f82. This time Mr. Schumer wants to pass a law (which he "considerately" named "Avonte's Law") to allow "parents of children with autism to participate in a voluntary tracking program that could help authorities immediately find them if they go missing." Are we talking Orwellian "Newspeak"? When is a law "voluntary"?
Still, here is another example of politicians, such as Mr. Schumer, who say they want to "help us" (know any politician who say they want to "hurt us"?). But to do this, they must enact innumerable laws and regulations. But however much politicians, e.g. Mr. Schumer, claim to "help us" with their laws and regulations, the real and only reason for them is to enable politicians, e.g. Mr. Schumer, to gain power: power to control us; power to exploit us; and power to sell favors. And they also help politicians condition us to obedience. And while there are many misguided advocates of laws and regulations, who sincerely believe they're beneficial, they're merely dupes of the power seekers. This was probably not the case with Vanessa Fontaine, Avonte's mother. But Mr. Schumer had no doubt used her (and posthumously used Avonte) as a prop and a dupe for his personal aggrandizement. I'm sorry if I seem disrespectful to Mrs. Fontaine, but this is the truth.
Still, as for obedience, it must be remembered that every law and regulation requires obedience. It must also be remembered that disobedience could result in extortion, kidnap or murder—all crimes that the government can legally commit against us as "fines," "jail sentences," or "executions."
I wonder if Mr. Schumer is aware of these "insignificant consequences" of all the laws he compulsively passed and continues to pass.
Thanks for reading.
