ED ANGER: HERE COME THE GARAGE SALE POLICE!

ed_anger_scroller

I’m madder than church lady with a dirty doily!
So now the government is sending out special inspectors around the country, to check out church bazaars and yard sales. How come? Because you might be selling something “dangerous”!
No, not, like, pickle jars full of arsenic or live leftover shells from WWII. They mean… kids’ toys with teeny tiny parts!
It’s true: the government is starting to go after thrift shops, poking through all those stinky orange muumuus and dusty Readers Digests and chipped tea cups to see if anybody is selling “blacklisted” toys and other crap.
Hell, thrift shops are the only places anybody can afford to shop right now, and broke people are selling their stuff on their front lawns. But we can’t have THAT, can we? It looks way too much like unlicensed free enterprise and self-reliance!
I mean, it’s not like there’s a war or two on or anything, or a crappy economy or people dying of cancer. What’s really important is making sure your damn stupid kids don’t swallow Beanie Baby eyeballs!
The crappy products the government is hunting down are all from ten or twenty years ago and came from Chink-land or something. Well, if anyone’s enough of a traitor to buy all this Chi-Com garbage in the first place, they deserve to die for the crime of being un-American!
Think of it as a really slow motion firing squad, with lead paint instead of lead bullets!
I can’t believe we’re paying $100 million for this. Get off my lawn, Obama! You’ll have to pry my crochet pot holder from my cold dead hand!

  1. As the founder of Tagsellit.com, a virtual garage sale website where sellers could post their items for sale and buyers from around the country could more easily find them, we've always advocated "buyer beware." Although common sense says to agree with the CPSC new rules as to not pass injury onto other children and families, perhaps at this point of "crack-down" our government is going just a bit too far. Sure, we live in an information revolution now where anything we could possibly want to know is just a click away, but do you really think sellers are going to care either way? If they can get a dollar for it, they're going to do it somehow.
