    This is one of the many reasons you have to keep an eye on government...because idiots get in there and make monumentally stupid decisions:

    On Tuesday, agency Director (and obviously an opponent of individual rights) Ismael Ahmed said "good neighbors should be allowed to help each other ensure their children are safe."

    And obviously, according to him, 'good neighbors' should turn one another in for absolutely stupid reasons. Sheesh.

    A couple of proverbs come to mind that generally fit this situation; not in detail, but in principle. Prov. 28:16; 30:22

    This concept of the Peter Principle (I think that's the term) is extremely evident in far too much of government today.

    Sometimes I wished that the Government would back off of people's businesses!
