From the Unintended Consequences File.......

Arizona dares L.A. to carry out boycott

"The spat over Arizona's new immigration expanded Tuesday as a state official dared the city of Los Angeles to follow through on its new boycott by agreeing to give up the 25 percent of electricity that city gets from Arizona sources."

Arizona tells the LA City Council to go, "Eat shit and die. In the dark."
I'm pretty sure this idea never even occurred to these morons when they were voting on this, "symbolic Action."
Ya gotta love it.

On the Medical front...

Mayberry brought this to my attention today - Handbook suggests that deviations from 'normality' are disorders
"Today's DSM defines "oppositional defiant disorder" as a pattern of "negativistic, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward authority figures." Symptoms include "often loses temper," "often deliberately annoys people" or "is often touchy."

That's just charming. There's no way this could be abused. Right?

From another Post article on this subject-
"But perhaps more important, the outcome will help shape which emotions, behaviors, thoughts and personality traits society considers part of the natural spectrum of the human persona and which are considered pathological, requiring treatment and possibly even criminal punishment."

Oh hell yes. What could possibly go wrong?

I thought it was a good thing to "think outside the box. March to a different drummer" and all that shit. Guess I was wrong.

And here's a glimpse of the future under our new ObamaCare- Woman dies from toilet brush stuck in her backside

Hey, it was only in there for TWO YEARS before they figured out that just maybe there was something wrong.

"It was two years before Cindy, who was in constant pain, was able to convince doctors that the thin serrated plastic handle was stuck in the flesh of her bottom.

By then what should have been a routine procedure to remove it had become much more dangerous because the handle had become embedded in her pelvis."

Government health care. Everything's turning up roses.
She ends up dying because it costs money for an xray on her original ER visit.

Coming soon to a country near you!
