Georgia on my mind


The Georgia Senate passed new legislation this week prohibiting involuntary implantation of microchips in any body part regardless of the person's age. The Senate voted 47-2 in favor of the bill.

It is sponsored by Republican State Senator Chip Pearson(Dawsonville, Ga). "This is simply to try to get ahead and protect under our state constitution our rights as people first," Pearson said. "We implant cattle and dogs, and that's fine. I just don't think implanting someone against their will is something that should be allowed."

Pearson said he is not aware of any microchips being involuntary implanted in people right now, so Democratic Senator Ronald Ramsey questioned the need for the bill.

What's next? A resolution banning zombies from eating your brains? I wonder if this really is as dumb as it sounds or is there some backstory I am missing? Don't we have more serious issues that we need to work on right now? But since they took the time...It also makes me wonder who would vote against this? I need the names of those two Senators! Or maybe they were just voting against it because it was stupid!

In searching for more information on this story I came accross these STUPID laws that are already in place in Georgia...

Up to a few years ago, the city of Coral Gables, Fla. didn't allow sidewalk cafes because the flies from the horse manure on the streets would land on the food...
The last horse on the Streets of Coral Gables was in a Parade 25 years ago.
thanks for the comment, saludos,

So, I won't lie, I stumbled upon your blog from ... Bo? Yep.

Anyways, Jesus, the giraffe thing. I laughed for ages -- to the point that I was crying. Until I told my little cousin, he thought I was on crack. I will now be telling everyone that Texas isn't the only place with unbearably stupid laws. (If you ask for a shotgun and a horse after getting out of jail, the jail is required to give you both -- I want to go, if only to gain a horse and a shotgun. ^_^)
