    Victoria Banning delivery devices

    The Nanny State strikes again.

    For those of you who think that E-Cig Hardware can't/won't be touched... have a look at the logic behind this legislation.

    The State Government will introduce legislation into Parliament this week to ban the sale of bongs.

    Who's to say that everyone who buys a "bong" smokes the "evil" weed through it??? It's a "water pipe".. for smoking ANY combustable substance through it to "filter" it with water to smooth it out... what they are doing is crazy and so backward in approach to a problem that will not go away with this silliness.

    Seriously? Haven't they got anything better to do...

    I didn't vote for these prats. I say we form a new party. The "Bong smokin, drug usin', alcoholics anti nanny state party". I'm so over this shit and being told what I can and can't do at every turn.

    I'm bringing back fireworks as well. In fact. There'll be a free porn mag with every bag of fireworks sold.

    Cheers,

    Arkay.

    Heh....

    Try this one if you think it's imaginary.

    An old mate and I were talking about a day out fishing we had back in 1975. Four blokes, a tinnie, the ute and a bloody good day out without a law being broken, as far as we could recall.

    I got to thinking about doing the same thing again now and by my estimates, we'd now be breaking at least 11 different laws if we did exactly the same thing tomorrow.

    With exactly the same amount of harm done...

    I'd believe it. The amount of personal freedoms that continue to disappear is amazing. What's worse is the younger generations seem oblivious to it. Some of them even argue for it, seemingly not realising they are giving up far more than whatever the particular topic is about at the time.


    Cheers,

    There was a poll in The Herald Sun (I think) not that long ago asking if people thought we lived in a "nanny state". About 60 something percent said no. Thats how they get away with all this crap, people just don't pay enough attention to what their "representatives" are doing to us.

    Hasnt this bong debate happened before? There will be a huge surge in PVC piping sales if it happens. I remember one hardware store in Prahran that the receipt would actually say "bong pipe" for a particular size of PVC pipe. Gotta love it
