Tonight's "Give Me A Break" is about dumb laws. Think government must run your life because you have no common sense? Apparently many of our legislators think that. Better not throw a snowball in Belton, Mo., -- that's illegal there. Don't fly a kite in Schaumburg, Ill.; kite flying is illegal there. Oregon and New Jersey forbid you to pump your own gas. In Kern County, Calif., it's illegal to play Bingo while drunk. In Illinois you may not hunt bullfrogs with a firearm. And if you go to El Paso, Texas, better not sell any ice from out of town. That's illegal. I know about these laws because two high school students from Columbus, Ga., spent four years compiling a list of dumb laws for their Web site, and now they've published a book about them. One of the book's co-authors, Andy Powell, says he thinks lawmakers "think they're protecting us, but they're really just getting too much into the business of the American public and regulating common sense." The real outrage here is that the politicians waste their time and our money legislating the smallest details of our lives. Why do they pass these dumb laws? Politicians we asked said they were "worried about our safety." For example, the busybodies in Oregon and New Jersey say pumping your own gas is "too dangerous!" "A fire hazard." They convinced their fellow legislators, even though we, in 48 other states, manage to pump our own gas without blowing ourselves up. At the rate they're passing laws, we'll soon be a nation of shut-ins. Why can't they just govern the way the founders intended -- guaranteeing, "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," but otherwise leaving us alone? To all these politicians, over-involving themselves in our lives, I say, "Give me a break."
