    Sexual Pleasure - BIG GOVERNMENT Style

    It's become a daily barf session seeing BIG GOVERNMENT's increasing stronghold on Americans - from our wallets to what we wear to sex toys. Yep - sex toys.

    The BIG GOVERNMENT of the state of Alabama (Red, Republican) dictated a double whammy, first making it illegal for a business to sell a sex toy and second, making it illegal for a private citizen to purchase a sex toy.

    Sherri Williams, owner of Pleasures stores in Huntsville and Decatur, said she was disappointed, but plans to sue again on First Amendment free speech grounds:
    My motto has been they are going to have to pry this vibrator from my cold, dead hand. I refuse to give up
    Business owners in Alabama had asked the U.S. Supreme Court to throw out the law as an unconstitutional intrusion into the privacy of the bedroom, but the justices made the choice not to hear the case. In other words, BIG GOVERNMENT at the federal level agreed with BIG GOVERNMENT at the state level that BIG GOVERNMENT has the authority to control what people buy, what people sell, and what can be used by the citizenry in their private lives.

    The Supreme Court said BIG GOVERNMENT states can legislate morality. I consulted with that rarely used document - the U.S. Constitution. I did word searches and close reads. Nowhere did I find the Constitution giving BIG GOVERNMENT states (or any government level) authority to define and/or legislate morality. If the people of a state voted for such a thing then it might fly, but they didn't.

    I have not heard any of the pompous candidates, Republican or Democrat, comment on such intrusive dictates of BIG GOVERNMENT - probably because they all drool at helping to make BIG GOVERNMENT even more intrusive.

    All except one - and that's why I've now posted the top-right banner for my support of Ron Paul. He seems to be the only one with a clue of what is happening to the American people (along with millions of citizens that are joining him - as I have).
