Washington is finally focusing their energy and manpower on tackling an important issue! They’ve now decided to manage a new area of our lives. Guns, religion, business, marriage – that’s old news. They’re finally focusing on what matters – tramp stamps.
I’m not making this up. See for yourself in this 66-page page draft regarding “body art” that the Health Department just released.
I guess after Bloomberg’s war on soda pop and ear buds, we shouldn’t be surprised. It just amazes me that while real issues like a military strike in Syria…and the truth about Benghazi…and the IRS and NSA scandals loom…some guy in Washington is wiping his brow as he types about…tattoos.
They’re wanting to institute a 24-hour waiting period that you have to complete before getting a tattoo or piercing.
DC’s Health Department Spokeswoman, Najma Roberts told the Washington Post, “We’re making sure when that decision is made that you’re in the right frame of mind, and you don’t wake up in the morning . . . saying, ‘Oh my God, what happened?’
What’s next…hair cuts? Nail Polish?
Dear Mr. President, My name is Carly Hill. You’ll remember me because in 2012, I requested to get that Bible verse tattoo on my wrist…and just last year, when I wanted to add a turquoise streak to my hair, you said no? Well, I’ve been thinking, and I’d really like to get my nose pierced. I promise I will want it in 6 months. I might even keep it in when I’m old and wrinkly. Please consider my request. I know you’re busy with other things, but this is really important to me. Thank you for your quick responses in the past.
All silliness aside, the fact that this is actually happening is so crazy, it’s laughable. But, it doesn’t induce ha-ha laughter in me. It’s more like that nervous-response-laughing-at-a-funeral-type of giggle. I’m still in my twenties, and just in the last few years, I’ve seen freedom after freedom be challenged in this country.
We’ve got the serious attacks – on religious business owners who want to run their shops according to their beliefs. We’ve got the gay marriage thing – which challenges the freedom of Christians to teach against it. Then we’ve got the ridiculous legislation -like New York’s soda ban and Bloomberg’s ear bud battle.
But, all these drafts of legislation are pointing to the same problem. The goverment is trying to take charge of our lives – in big, monumental ways – like challenging our 2nd amendment right to gun ownership, and our very religion…and then in smaller ways, like making us wait before we get that tat we’ve been saving up for.
