Things I simple don't understand

Some things that happen in government I simply do not understand. The News & Observer reported on the passage of two bills in the NC House yestereday, both sponsored by Rep. Jennifer Weiss (D-Wake). Both passed nearly unanimously — yet Rep.Weiss was listed as an “excused absence.” Did she have a note from her mother?

Another odd thing with local zoing rules. I live in the Containment Area (Cary). Dog owners have to pick up after their pets do their business. I supposed it is in the interest of the environment. Yet they pick up the stuff in plastic bags. Yet the geese and ducks, who are “protected species” leave their offerings everywhere and anywhere.

Then there are the bill titles that called “Freedom of Choice” Acts which actually limit choice.  Don’t get me started on that.
