When things like this pop up. I think it is time we rethink the whole "more government" thing.

What's next? If this is allowed to stand, what of when you host a sleepover for your kid? Will you need a permit for that too? What the hell happened to "The Land of the Free"?

also, nothing's gonna happen. if anything happens they'll just change the law to say that friends/neighbors could be considered related or somethin to make circumstances like this an exception

and fuck that whole land of the free jibe

She's stealing jobs from all those day care centers where poor people can get to work and put food on their family's table.

As I read it, the Governor is already putting into motion a change in the state law that forbids this form of "daycare" - because it's not really daycare, it's "before-the-bus" care. And really, how much care is she providing? She's only watching the kids so they don't get abducted, start a fire, attack each other with sharp objects, run with scissors, etc.

State laws are written years before to prevent unscrupulous individuals or groups from taking advantage of situations. There will be societal and sociological changes in due course which can and do affect the interpretation of these laws. It's one reason why the Founders provided for Amendments to the Constitution.

I'm OK with this.

EDIT: .. and f**k that neighbor who blew the whistle, and the horse they rode in on.

What if they stood on the corner off her property and she stood on her porch and watched them? Does that count as daycare?

Wow. She's not even getting any profit whatsoever from it. She's doing what I like to call "being a decent person." Seriously, what the fuck?
