New Jersey has the classic issue of government creating new laws that are cash grabs. They’re created by people in power that want to pass their own agendas. Government councils seem as they are ran like reality shows, where people form their alliances and promise to pass each others BS ideas.
The Garden State has passed a law that dogs and cats have to be buckled up; police and animal control are authorized to fine drivers that have unrestrained animals in a vehicle. Violators can be fined $250 – $1,000 per offense.
Toronto, Canada we have to pay 5 – 6 cents per plastic bag to carry home our purchases. If that wasn’t good enough, now the city council voted to ban them as of 2013 ( Oh we get to use bags for free from July until the ban goes into place). Thank God William Shatner is from Canada; Captain James T. Kirk can help us use Star Trek’s teleportation technology to get our retail purchases home. It’s not that I’m totally against it, but there is no reasonable alternative in place. “Do it because I said so” is not good enough. When are we tax payers going to stop laughing and scratching our heads? Such idiotic ideas get passed, even if it takes a few tries, and we just take it. Like sheep that farmers herd with a couple of dogs, we run left and right and get used for their personal benefit.

We’re in this life together: Together, that’s the key word. We need to stop responding as individuals and respond as one.
