Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges: When the republic is at its most corrupt the laws are most numerous. NO.
Corruptissima Congressus plurimae leges: When Congress is at its most corrupt the laws are most numerous. (a.k.a., Lawyers will be the death of this Republic)
That’s more like it.
Dear Oligarchic Leaders,
I know that buying and selling used children’s clothing, toys and furniture at consignment sales may be a “bit beneath you,” but I appreciate that you will graciously allow me and my family to continue to do so for now. I hope that Goodwill can find someway to test all of their crap for lead though, so they don’t have throw their inventory away.
Consigning does help our budget. Not to mention it keeps us out of Walmart and keeps us off the streets.
One day when we are big can we have your permission to keep more of the money we make? No? I didn’t think so, but I had to ask.
PS: When consigning is outlawed, only outlaws will be consigning! Think about it!
She who shall remain endearingly bitter
