Banning little bags: What passes for doing something in the world of Liberals.

Chicago, you’re safe now!Everyone has heard the charge that liberals engage in symbolism over substance on nearly every issue, touting feel-good measures as opposed to actually addressing the underlying problem.  Well, if there is a better example of this phenomenon than what Alderman Robert Fioretti is proposing to do in Chicago, we haven’t heard of it.

Fioretti is proposing a city-wide ban on tiny baggies because they are often times used to sell drugs.  Sadly, the measure has support.

Health Committee Chairman Ed Smith (28th) said the ban is part of a desperate effort to stop what he called “the most destructive force” in Chicago neighborhoods.

Desperate isn’t the word for it, pathetic is. 

Why not just ban criminals from selling drugs?  Or make it illegal to possess drugs?  Oh, wait, that’s right.  Never mind. 

Since law abiding drug dealers wouldn’t have the means by which to sell their product, looks like the crack problem in Chicago is solved!  Congratulations.

    By your, and I hate to call it logic, everything we post on the latest global warming news is invalid because Al Gore isn’t pope. Have you never heard of making a point about idiocy with humor, Bob? If you think banning the sale of small bags will curb the drug trade, well, I have a bridge to sell you. There’s a reason those bags are found all over the streets and parks, because junkies can’t wait very long to take their drugs and dump them everywhere. By the logic of this action, if junkies could wait to get home (if they have one) to take their drugs and threw the baggie in their trash, not on the street, the drug problem would be solved. If you can’t connect the dots yourself, well, I can’t help you.
