Nanny Knows Best, an Ongoing Series…

Via STACLU.

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.

Ah yes, we remember days like those back home. You’d be home from school early and next-door neighbor would look after you until your parents came home. Those were the days, where neighbors were allowed to look out for each other, help each other and just be, well, what’s it called? “Good neighbors?”

You might even call it “community organizing”, except it didn’t involve fraud, abuse of taxpayer funds, child prostitution and getting incompetent assclowns with absolutely no experience in any useful fields whatsoever elected for high office.

But you best be careful if you try that NOW, at least if you live in the People’s Republik of Michigan:

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.

Said consequences involving heavy fines and/or jail time. It’s a strange “child care home”, by the way, seeing as how she accepts not a dime for helping her neighbors out.

The Nanny Nazis’ response?:

A DHS spokesperson would not comment on the specifics of the case but says they have no choice but to comply with state law, which is designed to protect Michigan children.

“Ach, you cannot accuse uns of anyzink! Ve vere only follovink ORDERS!”

Time to start rounding up those criminals and have ourselves another Nuremberg. Only this time, to save money and bend the cost curve, we’ll skip the boring trial bit.

Got rope?

    First I’d find out who made the complaint and use them for batting practice.

    Then, since she isn’t receiving compensation I don’t know how they can characterize it as a business. I would tell DHS to go fuck themselves.

    DHS, I found out personally, doesn’t like dealing with people that can rub more than 2 brain cells together.

    and FOIST!!!

    At this point in American history, it’s madness ever to talk to any employee of government at any level. It matters not how good and decent they might be as private individuals; in their official capacity they’re agents of oppression and injustice, and must be treated as such. And yes, that applies with full force to the police. What little good they accomplish is overwhelmed by their role in enforcing laws that should never have been passed.

    Call it the good citizen’s version of omerta.

    I have said it before, I will say it again… My Mom and Dad did not go through all the trouble involved in immigrating from the Original Commie Shit-Hole™ (aka USSR) just to have the rot of communism catch up with me here. I’d tell the commies to “do the math” but that would be just ridiculous, considering they know nothing about it. Well, then, they should “do the meth” and just fucking DIE, already.

    And the ACLU will step up in 3… 2… 1… No? Ah, well then.

    So, who “reported” this woman? Start the beating with them. If the parents have approved the children staying over there until the bus comes, it’s absolutely nobody else’s damn business. This is beyond insanity.

    Next, Michigan DHS will start having 12 year old girls arrested for ‘operating a child care business’

    (aka babysitting and getting paid for it)

    So.

    Let’s see – local bakery not allowed to donate leftovers/day olds to homeless shelter “for safety.”

    Churches no longer allowed to feed homeless without a cost prohibitive license and inspections for their kitchen. Safety.

    Let’s not even mention the cost involved in cleaning clothes for the homeless & etc. For safety.

    Certain donations have to be refused. Safety.

    After school program shut down. Licensing. Safety.

    Can only give out so much of certain kinds of foods from the Church Pantry.

    And so on. The litany is getting tedious. This is just one more in the ever growing list of Liberal Gubbmint Busybodyness.

    Of course, we’ll have our resident Leftist Chowderheads defending this nannyism, and bemoaning the fact the “nobody does these things” anymore, so Big Brother has to take over. Which involves dipping into the public wallet.

    I mean, Secular Non Sectarian Deity, imagine the CHAOS if a Catholic Church, for example, were allowed to have a prayer before the meal they served. Why it could be the fucking end of the Republic and Religious Freedom as we know it.

    Fucknozzles.

    But, but, but …. I thought Odumbo said he wanted mandatory volunteering out of everybody. And now he persecutes those who try some voluntary volunteerism. :em98:
    What did you expect, you fucking fools.

    Ahhhhhh . . . .keeping the children safe from those who are actually keeping the children
    safe. Now the children will be left at risk.

    Quick, build a bus-stop kiosk, and staff it with an “official” government minder–from ACORN, of course.

    I’d say that was a job for the local ACORN office…to help this woman navigate the maze of child care regulations.
