My dear XD45 - it's NOT my crappy state. I just happen to be living here.
Got an idea - why don't you tell all of us where you live, so we can have some fun ripping the laws in your state apart.
Because, you see, laws are made by politicians, and my friend, there ain't no difference in the mental capacity of politicians by state, region, or country.
They are all in the business of politics for one reason, and one reason only. To make money. If the pols of this country were serious about serving the people, they would work like Tibetian Buddhist monks, for nothing but what gets put in their begging bowls. Of course, even if they did work that way, you could be pretty sure Big Oil, Banking, Pharmaceuticals, and others would put nice, big, fat checks in the begging bowls, and not rice.
If your state is less crappy than Ohio, tell me where you live, and are there any job openings for Project Managers -- I would gladly exchange addresses, if your state really is any less crappy than "mine". I have lived in a fairly large number of states in there United States, and brother, they all have their crappy "things".
