§ Two Strikes You're Out: The "Footsteps" Rule

{Rule #4 « Rule #5 » Rule #6}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I promulgate, in my not-so-humble opinion, sensible rules for a society gone mad. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions. But be advised: if your opinions aren't sensible, it's two strikes for you, and you're out of the gene pool.

If I only had some charisma I could rule this world-gone-mad at least as well as any community organizer. Quite possibly better. At least my legal system would be transparent, simple, and swift: if you are a stupid f*ck and do something that doesn't make any sense, your first offense earns you a reasonable penalty that fits your transgression. Your second offense earns you a one-way ticket out of the gene pool. No exceptions.

Rule #5: The "Footsteps" Rule

“The rabble-rousing Rev should give his daughter a sermon about road rage. [...] Dominique Sharpton was charged with resisting arrest, and issued summonses for crossing a double yellow line and running a light. [...] She told Amsterdam News in a 2008 interview that following in her father’s footsteps was, ‘not something I really planned on doing, but I know it’s something I have to do. Being his eldest daughter, it’s my responsibility.’” [emphasis added]

So according to your logic, Ms. Sharpton, it's not your fault that you are obnoxious, because, as his oldest daughter, it is your responsibility to follow in your Dad's footsteps. Interesting line of defense ...

Penalty for first offense: Suspension of driver's license for 6 months, and 100 hours of mandatory listening to your Dad's sermonizing.

Penalty for second offense, or whining about the first: A one-way ticket out of the gene pool. No exceptions.
