If there were ever nonsense, this is it.
love the wrong person
Ask Kim Davis how that claim is working out. We have some way to go, but we’re not where we were as a society when I was young.
grow the wrong plant
refuse to fund wars
We do not allow people in this society, this country, to pick and choose which taxes they want to pay or to designate where their tax dollars go. We have a system where we freely elect our representatives. And before you start with the whole “the elections are rigged” crap, I give you Barack Obama (who didn’t have a chance as far as I could see) and from the other side, the situation with Donald Trump (who is a national embarrassment).
If it was all “rigged,” then the riggers are bonkers and don’t seem to be able to agree on anything.
Nicole and Joe Naugler do not pay any income taxes at all because they do not file. Therefore, they have no say whatever in anything, frankly, and should just STFU.
cut hair without government approval
I had to read this one twice to figure what in the hell it was talking about. Licensing for hair dressers. Yeah. If I go have my hair cut, or styled, or colored, you betcha that I want to know that the person doing that knows what the hell they are doing. They are putting crap on my body.
There are public health issues involved. But Nicole doesn’t believe that health issues are even issues at all, so naturally this wouldn’t matter to her.
neglect to pay your rulers
As I said before, Nicole and Joe Naugler do not file income tax returns and therefore do not pay any taxes and therefore need to STFU.
They aren’t my “rulers.” I pay taxes to my government, which consists of representatives that are elected by me and my fellow citizens.
sell unprocessed milk
Go read a little bit about pasteurization and why we have it for milk, and what it was like when we didn’t have it, and how many babies died annually from contaminated raw milk. Read about how unscrupulous people would put extenders in the milk, like chalk.
Then go milk a cow. I dare you. Go do it. Take a container with you (and not a plastic crappy old cup, but a nice clean stainless steel container). Clean the cow’s udder. Take all the time you want. Be sure to get all the shit off her teats, because cows lie down in it regularly. Then milk with your hands that may or may not be terribly clean at this point. Or use a milking machine, and hope to hell it was properly cleaned and that there are no little crannies with bacteria pooled in them. And when you’re done, strain the milk carefully.
Now, test the bacteria count of the milk. See how contaminated it is. Let it sit in the refrigerator for two days and then test it again. Gasp.
Then pasteurize your milk if you’re smart. Or, if you’re not, use the raw milk and gamble. Just don’t gamble with my family.
collect rainfall on your own property
This depends entirely on where you live. In some dry, desert areas, rainfall is considered a public commodity and has to be shared. This is not unique to the American desert. It’s also the case in other countries where water is scarce.
But hey, Nicole, you can collect all the water you want on your own property in Kentucky. Why don’t you do that, instead of getting Joe to go steal it for you?
open a lemonade stand without government approval
Yeah, let’s make a big deal out of this. Children want to open a little lemonade stand to make some pocket money and big bad evil government says they can’t without licensing. And this is terrible.
But it’s also generally fixable without much trouble. Every article I could find about this ended with a pretty decent resolution to the problem.
You do realize that if the state didn’t have laws about shit like this, Nicole would have her children offering lemonade for sale out in front of their business regularly. They’d make it in white plastic buckets. I’d rather have some raw milk than a glass of that stuff.
So that’s the great list of Things You Can’t Do and Isn’t It Terrible.
Try living in Saudi Arabia and then come back to me with your bitching. Or better yet, trying actually voting, Nicole, instead of just whining about “why can’t I do anything I want no matter what anyone says.”
