The Nanny State Gone Mad . . .
Houston says: Let the homeless eat ratatouille . . . and I am not talking about the vegetarian version. The local government feels that is safer and better for the homeless's diet than allowing good samaritans to feed them warm, home cooked meals - at least when the samaritans do not have a government license to cook the food and are not using a credentialed food manager to oversee the process.

The Nanny State Turned Malignant:
In Britain, a mother who suffered temporary paralysis from a fall had her infant child taken from her by the local child services. They have now held the child for 18 months and have been allowed by the Court system to repeatedly put off any hearings that would allow the mother to regain her child. Moreover, it seems they have manufactured evidence in order to justify putting the child up for adoption. How do the Brits put up with this without shooting everyone involved? Ooops, forgot, no guns allowed among the law abiding. Obviously there is a good reason for that policy across the poind, where the nanny state has turned malignant and the politicians are unafraid of the electorate.
