We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Middleville woman threatened with fines for watching neighbors’ kids

26th September 2009

Read it.

Lisa Snyder of Middleville says her neighborhood school bus stop is right in front of her home. It arrives after her neighbors need to be at work, so she watches three of their children for 15-40 minutes until the bus comes.

The Department of Human Services received a complaint that Snyder was operating an illegal child care home. DHS contacted Snyder and told her to get licensed, stop watching her neighbors’ kids, or face the consequences.

And what can we learn from this?

  1. The government is not your friend.
  2. Government employees, even whenthey have common sense, aren’t allowed to do anything with it.
  3. Whenever the government gets involved in something, it rapidly goes to shit.
