OK, here in Florida the state is now hunting down and killing snakes in the ever glades and other places in south Fl. The reason they are citing is because a 2 year old child was killed in her bed by a 10 foot Boa. Now I have a huge problem with this. When stupid is allowed to breed and have kids, stupid should be the one held responsible for the child’s death, not a snake. When parents place kids in cars, and not protect them with seat belts, or car seats, and they get hurt, or die in car accidents, we don’t stop them from driving. When they leave kids in the car while rushing into work, and the child dies in the sweltering heat, we do not out law cars. When parents allow the family dog to eat the child, we don’t out law dogs. SO why because one stupid parent allowed their child to be smothered to death by a Boa, are we know killing the ones that have been released by stupid people? I am not understanding this logic at all.
In my opinion the money would be better spent on legislation that bans stupid people from having children. There should be a test, a class, some sort of supervision, something to protect children from stupid parents. There are to many of them in the world today. It really bothers me that we do not do more to protect children from dumb parents. I know no one is perfect, but there is a big difference between good parents that make simple mistakes, like letting their child fall down, or pinch their fingers in a door, and a parent that is so dumb they allow a snake to smother it in the middle of the night. Or worse, leave them in a car to die of heat stroke, while they ran in the place of work with their latte from Starbucks. Some times I wish I ran the country, man the real changes I would make….
Anyway, tell me what you think. Let’s start an open dialoque and see where it takes us….
