Fun Is Against the Law!!

I wish I lived in a state where there's no real crime to prosecute...

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday.

The first sting operation was conducted recently in a Dallas suburb where agents infiltrated 36 bars and arrested 30 people for public intoxication, said the commission's Carolyn Beck.

Being in a bar does not exempt one from the state laws against public drunkenness, Beck said.

The goal, she said, was to detain drunks before they leave a bar and go do something dangerous like drive a car.

People leave private homes drunk, too. Will the TABC start knocking on doors and forcing drunk people to stay in their friends' homes under threat of arrest? If they are really worried about drunk drivers, they should wait by cars parked near the bars and advise people who are intoxicated not to get behind the wheel.

Mississippi Outlaws Sex Toys -- There is a landmark legal battle of constitutional proportions being fought down in Mississippi. It involves fundamental rights protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments, not to mention the rights of certain small business owners to satisfy their customers. This week, another court refused to recognize Mississippians’ right to find companionship for 29.99 and so a law outlawing the sale of sex toys will stand.

“A person commits the offense of distributing unlawful sexual devices when he knowingly sells, advertises, publishes or exhibits to any person any three-dimensional device designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs or offers to do so or possesses such devices with the intent to do so.”

I can't even begin to understand what this law is all about. Other than that there are a disproportionate number of people in Mississippi with sticks up their rectums who think pleasure is a sin.
