Braids

Just heard something I found interesting.  I can’t say for a fact it’s true, but, given the nature of those involved, it does sound about right.  Certainly it is exemplary of socialists.

It would seem that the New Jersey State Assembly unanimously voted to remove the law requiring professional hair braiders to have licenses.  Now that just floored me.  I didn’t know they required licenses.  Then again, I guess I should have.

At any rate, when it reached the governors desk, he vetoed it.  Go figure.  That was as far as the news report went.  There are however a couple of conclusions that a person can easily draw.

First, and foremost, it only goes to prove that socialists don’t have the interest in the poor in mind.  By signing the veto, he also insured that, maybe a couple hundred people will not be able to braid hair.  Also, of course, he protected those that already braid hair.  Hence, he insured that they could continue to charge higher prices and those that want to get into braiding stay in the homeless shelters.  To summarize, it is effective at keeping little gal or guy down.

My second conclusion is that either the man is stupid or someone has slipped him a dollar or two under the table.  I don’t know.  Maybe it is three dollars.  Regardless, I don’t know which is worse.  I don’t know which scares me the most.  Do we want to admit that the governor has the reasoning ability of a ten-year-old or someone who likes bribes.

By the way, for those interested, about half the states require licenses to braid.  I don’t know, but I’d guess most of them are blue.

The next time you find a useless law or regulation, I suspect you will find it was made by a Democrat.  If it keeps the little guy down, then I am sure of it.

Well, at least those of you in New Jersey can rest assure.  The person braiding your hair has successful graduated an extensive training course on braiding hair.  I sure that does make y’all feel much safer.

As a side note, my wife has braided her own hair, even when it was down past her waist.  I wonder if they will start outlawing that.  I know.  I am being ridiculous.  Then again, a week ago, I figured just about anyone can braid hair.  I guess that was my mistake.

I don’t know if a license is required in Mississippi.  I guess I should check before I open a shop.
