    Driving home tonight, a local talk radio guy, a libertarian-type, thought this was an example of government overreach, that there was no imminent danger to the baby and the officer had no business getting involved.
    For some reason, he would have been OK with the venue's private security getting involved, but he didn't think the police had any business getting involved. I don't see the difference.
    And frankly, I don't see how what the officer did was that controversial. He was concerned that the baby could have suffered hearing damage or been crushed. His job is to protect people from such things.
    Why has extreme libertarian philosophy become so fashionable?
    It seems kind of stupid to me to be arguing about this.

    Fucking bullshit. Ring the bitch up on every charge that can even remotely be applied. Reckless endangerment, CDM, scour the books to come up with anything you can find.


    And if my baby gets her eardrums blown out by the amps or crushed by a stumbling drunk in the pit, it's all OKAYYYYYY because I feel good about myself for BREASST FEEEDING!!

    Because, FREEDUM!!!!

    Call a fuckin' babysitter. Better yet, maybe you better park your baby in protective services for 60 or 90 days until you get your head out of your ass and figure out how to parent.

    Because, of course, any time we can possibly turn the lives of children over to kind and gentle CORPORATIONS instead of the evull evull gubbmint, it has to be a good thing.

    Gotta keep sucking that corporate schlong.
