Save The Children

I know of a sure fire way to get any law passed in any legislation. All you have to do is add the magic words,,”it’ll save the children”. I mean, who would vote against any bill that would save the children? Who would dare risk their political career to veto a bill like that? I know I wouldn’t if I were in power and probably no one else is going to either.

So what bills could pass with those magic words attached to them? How about,, we’re going to outlaw the constitution,, we’re going to allow searches without a warrant and it’ll save the children. Preposterous you say,, but is it? Perhaps you didn’t know that in schools today, an officer just has to get a principal to search the kid to find drugs or anything else, so long as the officer doesn’t do it himself,, well, it’s okay. Besides,, it will save the children.

So much for the constitution,, it’ll save the children. What kind of lesson are we teaching the children in order to save them? Submit to any police interrogations and searches at the behest of the officers,, because it will save the children? What next?

I can see it now,, don’t listen to liberal radio (whatever the hell that is), listen only to Fox news, because it’ll save the children. Submit to the whims of the government, because it will save the children. Listen to corporate America only, because it will save the children. Water boarding is okay, because it will save the children. Never buy a gun, because it will save the children. Don’t sue corporate America, because it will save the children. Worship the God we tell you to worship, because it will save the children. On and on and on it goes,,, all to save the children.

Can you imagine the mind set of a juror who hears this over and over and over again? So what if you counter by saying,, everyone has to play by the rules and there are ______ of them. Rule number one is __________.   The government / big mega corporation broke the rules. Then the jurors may not buy into the argument, yes but it will save the children. Have a nice day,, I’m off to court.
