The bulls, the bees and the trees.
As you may have read, we passed legislation to protect farmers from people who get inside cages with bulls. Of course the farmers have to put up a sign first telling people not to do it or it is at their own risk. Now, I hear there is legislation to protect bee farmers from being sued if someone get stung by a bee. I am sure a sign is to follow.
Can't we just get together and combine it all into one bill saying if you get hurt by a non human entity it is no ones fault? What is next? Tree farmers having to put up a sign on every tree saying they are not responsible if you are hit by a falling stick or pine cone?
I have seen this sort of thing in full action up north in NY. There is a sign on about every tree along roads for miles. I am not kidding. Property owners are so sue scared they are required to have signs about every 15 feet to tell people to stay off their land or they could be liable.
We don't need to go down that road.
